The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Ximenia & Salt Scrub

After a long day, sometimes all you want to do is go home and relax. For some it's just chilling on the couch while watching TV or reading a good book. For me, it would be a DIY pampering session! Getting full body scrubs can be pricey, so why not just do it at home? I've got just the perfect product for that!

The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Ximenia & Salt Scrub

Best if you want to: Take time to cleanse, revive and revitalize your skin using a luxuriously pampering creamy salt scrub for the body with skin softening butters from Africa that will leave skin soft, smooth and subtly scented with our traditional Spa Wisdom™ Africa fragrance.

Best for: all skin types, particularly those with dry skin who need to exfoliate regularly


How it works:
  • Community Trade organic beeswax moisturizes and conditions skin while acting as a barrier to help seal in moisture.
  • Community Trade shea butter moisturizes and softens skin.
  • Salt grains gently exfoliate skin.
  • Ximenia, an oil extracted from the ximenia tree native to Africa, helps soften the skin.

The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Ximenia & Salt Scrub comes in a thick glass jar with a flip lid and metal closure. The packaging looks cute and has that spa-like feel. It looks unique so I'll be keeping it long after I finish the product.

Opening the jar instantly gives you a whiff of that sensorial experience that lies ahead.

Our weather has turned rainy all week, and my skin's adjusting from last week's heat to this week's sudden cool. My arms are sometimes itchy and dry, and I treat it using this creamy salt scrub. It comes in a buttery texture and I don't know if it's just me, but this scrub feels slightly (and pleasantly) warm on my skin on the initial contact. I love how I can spread the product on my skin without worrying about wastage (since the salt won't fall off). The salt then melts onto your skin as it scrubs off dead skin cells, and the shea butter and Ximenia oil moisturizes without ever feeling greasy. This scrub has a comforting and exotic powdery floral fragrance that lingers on after you bathe. (This lovely fragrance also transform your bathroom into a spa!) It rinses off milky white, and leaves the skin super soft and delicately scented. This scrub is gentle, effective, and hydrating. This jar may cost like a one-time visit to the spa, but it gives you more value for money since it's good for multiple uses, and can give you soft skin for months.

Price: P1,950 for 350ml
Available at all The Body Shop stores nationwide

  1. Oooh I love me some good, lovely smelling scrub! :) I like DIY-ing it too - more value for your money! :)

    1. You will like this one - one of the bestsellers at TBS for a good reason. I'll repurchase when it's on sale. :D

  2. I love these "creamy salt" scrubs! Pure salts hurt way too much, and pure creams don't feel exfoliating enough (though some are undoubtedly luxurious! The packaging is so cute pa :)

    1. Oh, I haven't tried pure salt scrubs! Tempted to buy from Watsons (kasi minsan buy 1 take 1), but di ko naisip na masakit siya. Oo nga naman... Thanks for letting me know. :D This packaging is kinda heavy, hindi girly, but still so cute! Must be the metal thingy that makes it look like a lunch box. :)
