The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection

The Body Shop's Wild Argan Oil collection has finally arrived in Canada! These products are enriched with Community Fair Trade wild argan oil from Morocco, this is an awesome new range for dry skin.

This whole line smells SO good! To me, it smells like almond and subtles hints of vanilla, coconut, cocoa butter and nuts. LOVE IT!! If you like the Laura Mercier Almond Coconut range, I'm pretty sure you'll love the Wild Argan Oil collection (it's not exactly the same scent though, it's less sweet and more nutty).

Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub ($20 CDN for 200ml)
I don't know why, but I was expecting a creamy scrub like the one from the Cocoa Butter range, but it has a jammy consistency like the Early-Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub that came out this summer. It contains argan shell exfoliants though, instead of the raspberry seeds, and it feels a bit more moisturizing. It doesn't lather, but doesn't leave an oily residue on the skin either. It's a very effective body scrub, it's sooo scrubby and my skin feels very smooth!

Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath ($12 CDN for 250ml)
I couldn't test this bubble bath because I only take showers in the summer, sorry!! But like everything else in this collection, the scent is super yummy!

Wild Argan Oil Body Butter ($6 CDN for 50ml)
I'm usually not a huge fan of body butters, but I love to use this one on my hands! It's creamy and thick, you only need a tiny amount and it's very moisturizing. The travel size is perfect to keep in my purse too!

Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel ($9 CDN for 250ml)
This is a great shower gel! It's not a super moisturizing formula so I will probably stop using it in a couple of months when the temperature will start dropping, but it cleans without leaving my skin feeling dry or itchy. I really enjoy the scent of this shower gel and it lathers quite nicely too!

Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil ($14 CDN for 50g)
I like to apply it on my legs, elbows and heals, it feels very moisturizing! I take a small amount then rub my hands together to melt it into an oil. You really don't need much, a little goes a long way! I also tried it in my hair and it works great to add some shine. However, the scent is a bit different in this one and I don't like it as much, it's more nutty.

Wild Argan Oil Massage Soap ($6 CDN for 150g)
I prefer shower gels, but I still think it's a great soap. It creates a nice creamy lather and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. It's too early to say if this soap is moisturizing, so I'll update this review in a couple of weeks (I wanted to post this review as soon as possible).

Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion ($12 CDN for 250ml)
I'm so in love with this lotion, it sink into my skin so fast! It's a thick body lotion, but it doesn't feel heavy at all. My skin is soft and supple without feeling greasy or sticky! The scent last a long time on me (more than 8 hours), and I really like the pump packaging.

Wild Argan Oil Solid Oil Lips ($6 CDN for 20ml)
This balm has a lovely creamy texture, it's slightly sticky but not too oily. I'm surprised by the moisturising power of this lip balm, but I wish the scent wasn't as strong because sometimes I get a perfumey taste in my mouth. That's too bad because you also get a lot of product for the price.

There's also a Radiant Oil in this collection, but I didn't receive it. I will need to order it though because I'm a dry oil addict and Wild Argan Oil is officially my new favorite The Body Shop scent!

I'm so happy that these are not limited edition! My must-have products are the Rough Scrub, the Shower Gel, the Body Lotion and the Body Butter.

They really need to add an Eau de Toilette to this collection though, seriously!

(I received these products in order to evaluate them and give my opinion, but rest assured that my comments are always honest and impartial.)


  1. I'm so glad you reviewed this collection. I'm going to have to check out a few items next time I'm at the mall. ;)

    1. Please let me know if you like them, although I'm sure you will!!

  2. Mmm, this collection sounds amazing!! And those macro shots are killing me -- they do such an amazing job of giving a "feel" to each product.

    1. It is!! I'm addicted! I'm so glad you like the macro shots, I love seeing these on others blogs too :)
