The Body Shop Body Milk Review

A couple of months ago, I would not shut up about these. I even included them in my 2017 yearly favourites, as I seriously love them. After months of putting it off, the time has finally come for a full review. I’ve also now realised that it wasn’t a few months ago; it was last year, so there’s that.

What is It?

It’s a moisturiser, but very thin. This means it’s lightweight and absorbs really quickly, so you aren’t left feeling sticky for hours afterwards; which we all know is the worst.

The Scents

These come in two scents: Coconut and Moringa. The coconut scent is extremely tropical, and a great one to take on holiday. Moringa is floral, and more of a classic day scent.

Fun fact: I used to use the Coconut scented hand gel when I worked at the co-co, and a customer accused me of sneaking Malibu. I don’t know if that reflects on the customer or the scent of the coconut range, I’ll leave that one to you to work out.

The Sizes

You can get these in two sizes: 60ml or 250ml. I’d suggest getting the bigger size, as the spray bottle is really convenient. If you get the smaller bottle, I imagine it being a little harder to use, with how thin the formula is. With the spray bottle it sprays evenly, and you can easily spray it in your hand instead of direct to the area. If you would prefer the smaller size, you cannot get Moringa for some strange reason.

Costs

The 60ml bottle costs £3 and the 250ml is £8.50. Which I think is great, especially as The Body Shop often have sales, so chances are; you can get them for a little bit cheaper.

Does it Work?

Yes… if you use it daily. I’ve noticed that the benefits hang around for about a day, and then I’m back to being half lizard, which obviously isn’t ideal. On the website it does say: use daily for skin that feels nourished and irresistibly soft to the touch’. When it says use daily, it means it. Sure you get the skin feeling nourished and soft to the touch, but only if you use it every 24 hours.

When to Use?

Daily of course.

In all seriousness, I try to use this after a shower, so I never end up using it daily. Every other day will have to do. The only time I use it daily is on holiday. With it being so lightweight and quick to absorb, it’s great to use before you go out for that evening meal. Plus who doesn’t want to smell like a Coconut on holiday? Or a flower…

So that’s it really, these are really great and the spray bottle is the biggest convenience. Next I really want to try the body yogurts, as you can go a whole 48 hours with those apparently. Even though I am jealous that there’s a Banana one in the US.

Do you shop at The Body Shop?

    I have a problem with products that have to be used everyday. I tend to forget about certain things – like my phone from a table at a restaurant (happened to me several times) or my jacket so I won’t be able to remember about a beauty product either. I wanted to check a product from The Body Shop and I think I might try it out. Btw. your story about the crazy customer made me crave Malibu way too much than it should!

      I hope you manage to get them back! It’s hard to remember to use it daily, so it’s a bit of a pain in that aspect. I hope you love it! Haha, it was the same when writing it!xx

    I used to shop at the body shop before I moved to France as it was so close to me – I once spent hundreds in there when I was like 12, had acne and was desperate to get rid of my spots, so I suppose I could say they were my first real experience with skincare! x I love their body care because it always feels so luxurious! I’d love to try this out, especially the moringa one (like you, I’d never manage to get daily use out of it) as I’ve tried their moringa body sorbet and it was my favourite product for like a year – the smell, JHEEZ! x Lovely post babes! x

      Gutted that it’s harder for you to get a hold of now! No way! I hope it all worked out, and was worth it. Totally agree that it feels luxurious. Yes, the Moringa range is so good, and seems so underrated too! Thank you!!xx

    Ooo these look lovely! Would love to try the body yoghurts too though – heard they’re also really quick absorbing!

  7. This sounds lovely. I actually have not been in a Body Shop in a longtime. I love coconut and moringa, and use milk and yoghurt based products in my skincare so I will check this out.

    I’ve started using spray on moisturisers and I love them! You ever end up applying a thick layer like you would with normal moisturisers!

    I can’t stop going into The body shop lately and usually head straight for the makeup bargains. I really like the sound of these and love that they have a spray top which must make them so convenient to use. I’m definitely going to check them out next time I’m in!

    I’ve found it actually really hard to find a moisturiser or body milk that you only need to use a couple of times a week for it to make a difference, I always need to use them everyday! I do love the sound of the coconut one though, I always find it so moisturising as an ingredient! xx
