The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub & Body Butter

Last month, I reviewed The Body Shop's Wild Argan Oil The Radiant Oil. Now, the spotlight is on two of the other products from the range: Rough Scrub and Body Butter.

The Body Shop carries tons of body scrubs and butters in every flavor imaginable. Most of them are fruity or floral, so something nutty is a nice change.

Reveal radiant skin with this rich body exfoliator, enriched with Community Fair Trade wild argan oil from Morocco and argan shell exfoliants.
  • Lifts away dead skin cells
  • Helps stimulate skin surface
  • Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother
  • Enriched with Community Fair Trade Wild Argan Oil

The Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub contains walnut shell powder, argan oil, argan shell powder, and honey to exfoliate and hydrate the skin.

This body scrub is not named "Rough Scrub" for nothing. This amber-colored scrub the grittiest scrub I've tried from The Body Shop to date. It's made of nut shells that feels really rough on the skin as you rub it on, but it's not too abrasive. You know the feeling of body scrubs you get from the spa? This scrub gives that after-effect! My skin begins to feel super soft and silky the moment I rinse this off in shower. And the bonus, but I'm not sure if it's just me... my skin looks fairer after using this scrub, since no traces of dead skin cells are left. Also, this scrub has a warm, nutty fragrance with hints of floral notes, which smells really good!

Tip: For maximum hydration, you may apply the Wild Argan Oil The Radiant Oil first, then seal in the moisture afterwards by applying the Wild Argan Oil Body Butter.

Indulge in the most luxurious beauty ritual with this rich body moisturizer, enriched with Community Fair Trade wild argan oil from Morocco for dry skin.
  • 24 hour hydration
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth
  • Buttery texture
  • Enriched with Community Fair Trade Wild Argan Oil

This body butter contains shea butter, cocoa seed butter, babassu seed oil, and argan oil to moisturize the skin.

Wild Argan Oil Body Butter has a light, creamy, buttery texture that feels more melty compared to thicker variants such as Shea. As usual, I love dipping into a comforting tub of body butter after my night shower. Moisturizing my body all over is a ritual that helps me sleep better at night since I rid myself of the dry and tight feeling. Recently, the weather has become cool and dry, so my skin would sometime feel itchy and scaly. This body butter solves the problem instantly and gives my hydration that lasts longer than body lotions. However, even with it's Wild Argan Oil content, I feel that it works just like a normal variant of body butter in terms of moisturizing. The only thing that varies is probably its warm nutty fragrance.

Between the two, I would repurchase only the Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub, as it's the most potent and effective body scrub I've tried. (The label doesn't say it, but it makes my skin look fairer after use!) The body butter works like a regular variant (even with the added argan oil content), so I would skip this and get one in a scent I truly love (such as Honeymania).

  1. kinda pricey for me but if it really makes a difference why not dba?

    1. It does, but since it's pricey, I'll make sure to buy for when it has a discount. :)

  2. I love the scent of the blueberry scrub but it wasn't scrubby enough, this one looks better! Will have to wait for a sale though (not that it'll take too long anyways haha)

    1. I agree with you. At first I thought this one's similar to the Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee, but that one works just like their body polishes. The Wild Argan Rough Scrub definitely wins!

  3. i love the wild argan scent .
