I have tried so many bath products like shower gels and body scrub from The Body Shop and they have never disappointed me. So without giving any second thoughts I got this Jolly Orange Body scrub during sale with 50% off price. Also I love citrus or fresh smelling bath products and that is another reason for me to get this scrub. The sale price of this product was Rs. 262.50 for 50ml. Ya I got a pretty small tub this time.
As you touch this body scrub it feels like you have touched some orange mousse or orange jelly or even an orange crushed/ smashed into this cute tub. Yes, this is so very orangey and the name ‘Jolly Orange’ is apt for this body scrub. The fragrance is also strong and much like natural orange. I did stare at the scrub for a while to see whether it has any natural bits/pieces of orange. I couldn’t find any though 😉
I took a little amount of this jelly like thing and when applied it on my skin, I felt this one was pretty different from their other scrubs. I would say this one was milder that I want to try it on my face as well. I didn’t do that because of one reason, nothing but the strong smell. The smell is really really strong that even if you are a citrus fragrance lover, this might be a bit disturbing. Even after the shower the smell stays on for a while and especially in my hands which was really disturbing when I used my hands to eat. I even got slight head ache smelling it so frequently. So I made sure I don’t use this just before my meal or I am not going to use my hands to eat if I have used this one.
This does little moisturization though I have to follow with a moisturizer after the bath. At the same time it did not dry my skin. This one is tested against animals and have used honey from Ethiopia. I really like the after effects on my skin.
