“ Brand: Body Shop / Scrub / Type: Hand Scrub / What it does: Exfoliates, „
The Body Shop Almond Hand scrub is my first disappointment from the Body Shop! I never ever believed that they made a product that I could review negatively, but I guess that is just the way it is!
I actually bought this product accidentally. The almond hand and nail cream was what I originally intended to buy, but picked this accidentally as they look exactly the same! Watch out! The only difference is the price. The scrub is £7 and the hand and nail cream is £8.
When I realised that it was a mistake, I was not overly concerned or did not bother to take it back! I like trying new products, so I decided to give this a go! I thought it would be a nice manicure treat for me! How wrong I was!
I got in the shower and began sqeezing the tube! Guess what? Nothing comes out! I thought it probably is frozen because it was a very cold week! So I warmed it up a little in the shower and still no luck! After really really squeezing it hard, a little bit came out of the tube! Shocked and really tired by this time, I just rubbed in the little bit that managed to come out. It did feel good on my skin but nothing beyond that as there was so little that came out.
Disappointed, I just stopped using it. Today, as I was walking past the store, I walked in to ask (just in case I got a old tube and may be they are actually quite good) if this was normal and the shop assistant said that she bought it as well and nothing would come out. She mentioned that she had to cut open the top of the tube to get the scrub out and recommended that I do the same! Shocking! I could not believe what I was told! I was hoping more along the lines of " Oh, sorry, please bring it back and we will swap it for something else"!
Very disappointing indeed!
