The Body Shop Merry Cranberry Body Smoother


Mmm...more cranberry scented stuff from The Body Shop. I've already used and reviewed the Cranberry Shimmer lotion from the same line. I picked this up at the same time for about three euro. Can't beat that. 

The Body Shop claims:
Fruity body exfoliator with cranberry seeds, crushed walnut shell, and community trade honey.


This stuff smells just like cranberry sauce. After using it I went through the kitchen cabinet until I found a can and ate it right up. Cranberry sauce has always been my fave part of holiday dinners. Not the turkey, or the mac and cheese. I'm odd like that. The strange thing is that I love to smell this from the container and love how it lingers all over the house after I'm done showering but I don't really like the scent while I'm sudsing in the shower. 

If you've seen the more recent versions of this stuff you'll know that the packaging looks a lil' different. I like this packaging better. The new packaging is ugly.


One problem I had with this is that I'm not really sure what it's meant at. As an exfoliator it has too much gel and not enough scrubby so I ended up using it as a daily shower gel. Kinda like the ones in the drugstore that have the useless particles in them in the drugstore, but since those are mostly meant as shower gels I used this one like that too.

Lather was pretty decent and it didn't leave my skin moisturized nor dry as all the gels from TBS tend to do. The scent didn't linger on my skin either which was strange because it stuck around the bathroom and hallway awhile.

Overall, it's aight...if you love Cranberry scented things than it might be worth a try but don't expect any exfoliating.
