Product Hype: The Body Shop Olive Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub

Being buff has two distinct and different meanings and while both have everything to do with your body, the one we’re focused on here is all about your skin. So get ready to start buffing away your body’s dead skin cells, dirt and grime with The Body Shop Olive Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub.

Used for thousands of years by Egyptians and Italians alike, this skin softener is fueled by olive oil and is considered to be the liquid gold of the Mediterranean. Employed by the brand’s Community Fair Trade partners in Nuovo Cilento, Italy, the olives are cold-pressed to extract their high-quality oil. They are then mix-mastered with water, glycerin, walnut shell powder and more to provide you with a hydrating, dead skin-cell removing formula that when rubbed all over your body will leave you feeling fresh, clean and with silky soft skin.

All it takes it a dollop or two of the thick, grainy scrub, emulsified between your hands and rubbed all over, rinsed away in the shower and then pat dry with a towel when you’re done, to experience optimum hydration. It’s so good too, that on days when you’re pressed for time, you may not even need to use a body soap to get squeaky clean or to follow up with an after shower body lotion.

The Body Shop Olive Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub, $22 for 250 ml, available online at www.thebodyshop.com.
