A Body Shop Disappointment?

Sunday, 1 November 2015






If you are a regular follower of my blog, you'll know how obsessed I am with The Body Shop so I never thought I'd write a post like this, but I think I've found a product from there which I am actually disappointed with!

As most of you know, my skin routine isn't great, I cleanse in the evenings, do a face mask once a week (if I remember!), moisturise and that's about it. For a few years, I've been using and loving The Body Shop Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser, however, when I went to repurchase it the other week, I noticed there was a Aloe Gentle Facial Wash which I hadn't tried before. I asked the assistant what the difference between the cleanser and the facial wash and when I told her I used the cleanser as a face wash and not using cotton pads, she practically laughed in my face! She told me I'd been better off using the facial wash, so I thought I'd take her advice and bought the facial wash.

It's a foam face wash, which would be fine, but I just find this one a bit harsh on my skin. It's not as calming as the the cleanser and I've noticed a difference in my skin, I've developed quite a few spots and I just don't feel like my skin is as clean and fresh as it is when I use the cleanser.

I guess I can't like every product in The Body Shop and this is the first one I've been disappointed with, but it's definitely not gentle on my skin like it claims to be.

Have you tried the Aloe Gentle Facial Wash from The Body Shop? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
