I am a bath person. Especially this time of year! Nothing beats a soak in the tub for a little bit of relaxation before bed. While I will fully admit that many times I am too tired in the evening for a bath. When I do motivate to take one, I am never sorry! Using decadent bath and body products is my little treat to myself. This is how I indulge and self-pamper. So, I just love exploring new bath and body products...such great bath motivation! ;) 

The Body Shop is one of my long-time favorite stores. It has long been a go-to for me for not only bath products but also skincare, makeup, and fragrance! So, I am super excited to try out their new Wild Argan Oil product range! 

Fair Trade Argan Oil:
Argan Oil has been used for centuries in Morocco. It is their beauty secret for conditioned hair and fabulous skin.

The Harvest: 
Even the process of extracting the Argan oil is an age-old tradition. First, the fruits are sun-dried and then the nuts are hand-cracked open. Then the kernals are pressed and are slowly filtered over 48 hours to extract the purest oil possible for the Body Shop's products. The result? A truly high-quality Argan oil goes into the products!

The Body Shop uses Fair-Trade organic Argan oil hand- harvested by Berber tribe women in Southeast Morocco (the remote Atlas Mountains). This trade supports rural agricultural communities in Morocco rather than using large city factories. This partnership is through the Tangarine Cooperative which strives to raise the standard of living for the Berber women in Morocco. Pretty cool, right?

The Body Shop Wild Argan Line:

The Body Shop's Wild Argan Oil line:
This line has such a beautiful and unique scent! The Body Shop's Wild Argan scent is hard to describe: it is a soft and comforting scent. To me, the Wild Argan scent is rich and feminine with hints of almond and musk and a slight hint of powder. It is a scent that I really enjoy wearing. So much so that I wish that it came in a body mist or eau de toilette! I would totally wear this as my everyday fragrance!

I tried out a variety of products from the Body Shop's Wild Argan Oil Range. To find out more about each product and how I liked it, please click "read more" below! :)

The Body Shop's Wild Argan Collection:
  • Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion: This lotion is my go-to hand lotion throughout the day. It is lightweight, non-greasy, and it is quickly absorbed. So, it is great for applying after washing your hands. Not only will your hands feel soft, but also the scent lingers on-and-on!
  • Wild Argan Body Butter: If I had to pick only one item that the Body Shop is famous for, it would be their amazing line of body butters!!! So, if you only get the chance to experience one item from this entire line, it needs to be a body butter! :) I love to slather on this ultra rich body butter after my showers and baths. It really does pack in 24-hour rich hydration. I love the buttery texture and it leaves my skin looking and feeling so smooth and soft! 
  • Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath: This is such a decadent treat in the bath tub! It makes a ton of rich and ultra-fragrant bubbles. The scent is so relaxing in the bath. I always feel super relaxed after a bath with these and my skin feels great, too! 
  • Wild Argan Radiant Oil for Body and Hair: This is a multi-purpose oil for both hair as well as body.  This dry oil carries the same lingering beautiful scent of all of the Wild Argan products. I like to use this either when my skin is super duper dry or to target specific dry spots after applying the body lotion or body butter elsewhere. Whatever is leftover on my hands gets worked through the ends of my hair.

  • Wild Argan Oil Body Scrub: My skin has been so dry and flaky this winter! I keep this body scrub in the shower to give my skin an exfoliation boost. It really keeps the flakies at bay and leaves me feeling smooth, soft, and super scented!
What do you think of this Wild Argan Body Collection from the Body Shop? Have you tried any of these products yet? I would love to hear what you think! :) Also, as always, I would love to hear any other Body Shop recommendations. Do you have any favorite products from the Body Shop?
