Is Almond, Milk and Honey Shower Cream from The Body Shop A Best Pick???
Who doesn’t like a long shower or relaxing bath…!?? We all do. I know not everyone has the privilege of enjoying a long bath in a bath tub. (nor time to enjoy it every morning)… Least we can do to enjoy the bath is to chose a nice aromatic bath gel or a bath cream. Usually post bath, our skin scream for more moisture. Choosing a moisturizing shower cream would be a wise idea.
The other day I had been to The body shop outlet in Westend mall Pune to do a mini haul. Since I was bored with the shower cream I was using, I picked up this one. Only point which made me pick this up was its fragrance. It’s a sweetest fragrance. Smells like sweet candies.
Well, did it any good to my skin??? Read on…

Comes in a transparent sturdy plastic bottle. Transparency makes it easy to get to know the quantity left inside.
The flip open cap is an advantage. As you can squeeze the bottle and get required quantity of cream out.
The cap is quite tight so no worries of spillage.
PS: in the past I have used many shower gels from The Body Shop. If you drop the bottle down, you might end up breaking the cap. Thus making it difficult to carry while you travel.
Till you break it, you are good to carry this with you while you travel.
This is a typical the body shop fragrance. This the fragrance you smell when you enter the shop.
This is a fresh candy fragrance, neither light nor empowering fragrance.
Does it lathers well :
Not really. That’s the major difference between a shower gel and a cream. Shower cream is thick in texture thus doesn’t lather as good as a gel does.
Is it moisturizing :
Yes shower creams are moisturizing than a gel. This one is moisturizing. Post shower it doesn’t makes my skin dry. But you do require a good moisturizer post bath in winters. For summers a lighter body cream will do.
Does the fragrance lasts for long :
No. This is a turn down. Post bath also I could hardly smell that sweet fragrance.
Will I repurchase?
For the fragrance while bathing, may be yes.
Will I recommend???
Yes to those who love candies’ fragrance.
