The Body Shop Brazil Nut Shower Cream

I was so excited when I saw this. Mostly because I loved the scent of the body butter even though it didn't moisturize my skin enough. I bought this over the summer for four euro or around six dollars. Was it all that and then some?

The Body Shop Claims:
Moisture-rich, creamy, cleansing bubbles for your bath, and an indulgent and soothing experience for you.  Containing Community Trade brazil nut oil to moisturise.

The short answer is no.

I hate the scent. It's smells like sweet nuts, with that same artificial scent that the coconut shower cream had. Blech.

It's certainly not drying, but no more moisturizing then their regular shower gels. My knees and elbows are a little smoother though.

One of my biggest complaints is the lack of lather. Now if this product were all natural and cheaper I could forgive the fact that it is rather lacking in lather. Since it's full of chemicals, I expect better lather.

Do I recommend?
Nope. Wish I could though because I was all ready to love something in the Brazil Nut line. Maybe the scrub is my only hope.
