The Body Shop — Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub

I’m not usually an avid consumer of The Body Shop’s products—I feel like their quality isn’t quite what they used to be, particularly the scents—but last year I was killing time at one of their stores and figured I’d give their Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub a try. The tester smelled quite luscious, and the scrub was more than half off (CA$10)!

From The Body Shop (Canada):

This gently exfoliating body scrub smells like freshly picked peaches. It lifts away dead skin cells and leaves skin peachy-soft.

– Lifts away dead skin cells
– Stimulates skin surface microcirculation
– Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother
– Delicate peach scent
– Special edition

I have to say that this isn’t my favorite body scrub. The cream formula has a tendency to feel a bit greasy, and so I never felt like it cleaned well enough. The scrub itself was too delicate for my liking. It just felt like the product didn’t do a whole lot.

The scent also was a disappointment. I know I said it smelled really good in-store, but for some reason when using it, it has a sort of after-smell that goes a bit plasticky.

I would try some other scrubs from The Body Shop, since they seem to vary a fair bit in texture and scent, and the sale prices are addictive! (Plus, I just signed up for their Rewards Card, so I need to make the most of that…) But I would not repurchase the Vineyard Peach Cream Scrub, and would be unlikely to try a different scent in the Cream Scrub formula.

The ingredients are:

Aqua/Water/Eau (Solvent/Diluent), Glycerin (Humectant), Butylene Glycol (Humectant), Glycine Soja Oil/Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Silica (Absorbent), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil/Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Prunus Persica Kernel Oil/Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil (Emollient), Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil (Emollient), Sorbitan Stearate (Emulsifier), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Caprylyl Glycol (Skin Conditioning Agent), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Prunus Persica Seed Powder/Prunus Persica (Peach) Seed Powder (Natural Extract), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Carbomer (Stabiliser/Viscosity Modifier), Cocos Nucifera Shell Powder/Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Shell Powder (Abrasive), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer (Stabiliser/Viscosity Modifier), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Prunus Persica Extract/Prunus Persica (Peach) Extract (Natural Additive), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Denatonium Benzoate (Denaturant), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), CI 14700/Red 4 (Colour), CI 15985/Yellow 6 (Colour).

The Body Shop Cream Body Scrub in Vineyard Peach is 6.9 oz / 200 mL and retails for US$20 / CA$22 (the price may have gone up; I just noticed that the price tag on my tub says $20 and the Canadian website now says it’s $22). The formula is vegetarian, contains community fair trade and non-GMO ingredients, and does not contain phthalates or triclosan. The Body Shop remains a cruelty-free company.

The Body Shop was founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick. It is headquartered in Littlehampton, England. In 2006, the company was acquired by L’Oréal.
