Today I am going to review the last product I have from The Body Shop Limited Edition Virgin Mojito Range and that is the Body Scrub! I like using body scrubs twice a week and sometimes thrice and I have been using this new scrub since I got it and that would be around 2 weeks now. So let’s get into the review and find out how it is!
About The Looks!
The scrub comes in a good quality plastic tub packaging just like the Fuji Green Tea one (Fuji green tea body scrub reviewed here and body butter here) the only difference being the cap. This one has a plastic cap which is translucent white with the brand name printed on with the picture of mint leaves and lime. The tub is transparent and you can see the green colored scrub from the outside. On one side of the tub the brand and the product name is printed with the net content and the other side has the price, shelf life and other information printed. I really like this packaging! Its sturdy, cute, and looks nice and fresh!

My views and experience with the Virgin Mojito Body Scrub!!
The scrub is green in color and has tiny green and white scrub particles. The consistency is like a jelly, just like the Fuji Green tea Body scrub. But it smells amazingly fresh just like Virgin Mojito drink! I keep sniffing in the tub while scrubbing since I love it a lot!
It is a gentle scrub yet it scrubs quite well. Its gentle on the skin while removing the dead skin. And so it can be used by all skin types, in all weathers and 3 times a week. I won’t use it for more than 3 times as my skin is a little sensitive and I am afraid of it getting sore after that. For me just 2 times a week is enough I noticed great results on my skin, especially the ankles. They were getting really dry and scaly in this changing weather and just the body butter wasn’t able to help much. But this scrub, scrubbed that dead skin away and applying body butter after that, gave me much smoother skin after a week! So yes I would say it does work!!
This body scrub is different in one more way. It leaves a layer like a moisturizer on the skin after washing it off. It is not greasy or sticky but you feel as if you applied a moisturizer on your skin. In nutshell it does not dry out the skin. I love this part! It also leaves the bathroom smelling like virgin mojito for a long time!! Its a fresh aromatic bathing experience!! 😀
One important thing is that you would need to be careful while using it. There should not be too much water on your body or hands that you dip inside to scoop the product out. Firstly, because the gel consistency will make the product slip away with water and will lead to wastage. Secondly, if the water goes and stays inside the tub it might contaminate the product. So either use a dry spatula to scoop out the product or just slightly dry your hands with towel beforehand.
