Body shop review part 1....

Ok so i was very lucky to be sent some goodies to test out from the body shop! I have a few things to review so this is part one...exfoliators!!

I should start by saying my skin is combination..i get an oily t zone and normal cheeks!

I was sent 2...vitamin c micro refiner and aloe gentle exfoliator...after using them both for a 2 week period each here's what i think....

Vitamin c micro refiner:

*RRP: £12.20 for 75ml

*Contains antioxidant vitamin c, Shea butter and silica crystals

I love the citrus scent of this product..i always find that if a product smells lush I'm more likely to use it on a regular basis! However i imagined that the small silica crystals would be gentle..i was wrong..i find this exfoliator too harsh for my skin! I found i didn't want to rub much at all as it was very powerful! The citrus vitamin c did clear up all of my oil though and my skin felt and looked very matte and refined! All in all i would say sensitive skins stay recommend this to someone with crazy dry skin that can take the strength of this exfoliator! Also i think this product is a little pricey for an exfoliator!

Aloe gentle exfoliator:

*RRP £7.30 for 75ml

*Contains aloe, jojoba beads and glycerin for hydration...yes please :)

I prefer this exfoliator hands down..gentle yet effective!! Ok so it doesn't smell as nice but that's due to it being a sensitive product im guessing! Im crazy on aloe..i really do believe it is the best ingredient for healing and boosting skins hydration levels...its the only moisturiser i take on holiday as i think its the kindest thing to use on sensitive skin! Aloe is normally expensive so i am pleased with the price of this product..very reasonable! I definitely will be buying this as it did its job and i feel it is kind to my skin :)
