The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Range

If you watch my Vlogs on YouTube, you might have already seen a little snippet of my trip to Morocco back in May. If not, The Body Shop invited me along to see first hand where the argan oil in their new Wild Argan Oil range comes from.
It's pretty rare, almost unheard of, for a brand to do this (especially with a blogger!) so I felt thoroughly privileged to have been invited....


The trip was incredible and gave me such an interesting insight into exactly how The Body Shop work with their community fair trade partners, and the real change that this work brings to the people involved. I go into this a little more in my vlog, as well as show you first hand how the oil is produced, so if you're interested in that, take a peek here:
In this post I wanted to show you the products themselves and give a little review of the range. It consists of 9 products. Some are The Body Shop 'classics' like the Body Butter and the Shower Gel, others are more argan-focused, like the multi-use Radiant Oil (£14), the Miracle Solid Oil (£8) and the Solid Lip Oil (£4). 

All of the products are infused with argan oil, so they are extra-nourishing for your skin. I've really enjoyed all of the products from the line, but I'm going to go into a little more detail about my three favourites…
First up is the Rough Scrub (£13) which gives you the perfect balance of exfoliation and nourishment. It's still an effective exfoliant, but the oil content means it doesn't strip your skin, leaving it soft and supple. The scent of the whole line is gorgeous too; a delicate fragrance that is slightly nutty with a hint of something more floral. I think those who are fans of the Shea range will love this.
I also adore the Body Butter (£13). I'm already a big fan of the Satsuma, Coconut and Fresh-Picked Raspberry varieties, but something about it is a little more luxurious than the other scents I've tried. It's slightly more oily in texture, so leaves a beautiful sheen to the skin.
Last but not least is my personal favourite from the line: the Solid Lip Oil. This is such a gorgeous texture, and leaves my lips really smooth and nourished. I have been using this at night, right before I go to bed and my lips feel super soft when I wake up. I've noticed more and more lip oils and 'lip masks' creeping onto the market this year, and this is definitely one of the most affordable (Hourglass and Bite are lovely too but SO expensive!) If you're looking for a great overnight treatment for your lips but don't want to spend the earth - this is a great option at £4.

The Wild Argan Oil range is available in The Body Shop stores now, priced from £2 to £14. I'd really recommend giving it a try next time you're passing!

  4. I'll definitely be trying out the Solid Lip Oil - having some major dry lip spells at the minute and need something that works but isn't too pricey! Thanks!

  7. I keep seeing this range advertised and keep reading about it and its been making me want to try it! I think I will have to give that body scrub a go..it sounds wonderful! I may have to try the solid lip oil though, it sounds like it'd be great to use at night, especially as the weather begins to change. Thanks for sharing =)

  44. Ooh I saw this range being advertised recently and wanted to try some out. I find Body AShop scrubs leave my skin too oily, but the lip oil and shower gel sound lush! What a great experience to see the development process first hand in Morocco, very envious!

  45. I am so happy you got an opportunity to visit and see where the ingredients actually come from, and because of you, we have got to come along too. I am a big TBS fan, and this has made me love the brand even more. I have read so much about argan oil and its use in skincare and I am so excited that TBS came out with a line. BUT! unfortunately it still hasn't been released here in India, and I hope they come soon. I am really looking forward to the body butter, scrub and the lip oil.

  46. Hmmm this sounds a lot like my cup of tea. I already adore their shea, moringa and honey range. I think this line will be a great addition! Can't wait to sniff it when I'm visiting their store again. It's really wonderful to see where argan oil comes from too! It must have been a great opportunity for you. x

  70. I had love the vlog from your collaboration with The Body Shop. And I must say, even though I have always love the Body Shop's Body Butter, I think Body Butters from this particular line will be even more moisturising. And I'm interested in that lip oil as well, sound pretty good. Great post Fleur, as always.

  72. Argan oil comes from nature to provide us the benefit of having gorgeous looking skin and hair. Considered as the beauty oil, it comes in different shapes and sizes, counting the various brands available to try. In the list of many argan oil brands that is said to offer gorgeous benefits.
