Things that make me go meh!
What is it?
Murad Activating Body Scrub
Why was it such a let down?
I love a thick body scrub as much as the next person but this is so condensed that scrubby bits (sugar and jojoba beads) get lost in the goo they are suspended in. If you have a nice manicure you are likely to ruin it from scooping this out of the tub. The instructions say to rub over wet skin but it just slides around, so I used it on dry skin to get some friction. The exfoliation you do get is very gentle which is okay but it’s not worth the faffing around when you get the same results with a cheaper scrub. The only redeeming feature is that it has a lovely crisp citrus scent similar to lemon sorbet.
How much did this beauty bust cost me?
This retails for £31.65 for 200ml at
Oh no, the Body Shop mask is one of my old time favourites! It would be such a shame if they’ve really changed the consistency, this product has been is stores for so many years because people still buy it, so why would a company alter a product if it provides a significant profit? Damn you, Body Shop…
I have that Body Shop one but have not gotten around to using it.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Origins charcoal face mask, it’s BRILLIANT!
I can’t think of recent products I haven’t liked as I haven’t been buying much..
I think body shop have changed formulas as a few of my re-buys most definitely seem different I actually think one may have broke me out
@cbsg5861 – Sorry to disappoint you, I always had fond memories of it as well I don’t know what the heck they have done to it!
@Rhamnousia – Hey chick not seen you around these parts in a while. I’ve not been buying much myself, feels kinda good in a strange way. I have the mask going to review it soon.
@Adrienne – I don’t understand why they have to mess with formulations unless they are going to improve it. The blue corn mask still seems the same but this one is just wierd now.
Thanks for your comments ladies v. helpful! x
