100% Awesome – Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Wash, Body Scrub & Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose Body Wash, Body Scrub and Body Butter. It’s been some time since I bought my Flower Pharm Wild Rose gift set (Asda, ¬£5). But when I saw a similar Flower Pharm set (same contents, slightly different packaging) at my local Tesco store the other day (I thought these products were discontinued – ?!), I knew I should finally try the products that I already have!

I have reviewed the body butter (which I have a big tub of) some time ago, and you can read my review here. In summary, this body butter is amazing! It’s rich, but not sticky. It feels great on my skin and it makes my skin feel great. I love it! And instead of mineral oil and synthetic fragrances, it contains coconut oil and real Damascus rose flower water. This body butter is fantastic!

The body scrub is very nice and effective. It contains pecan shell powder but it feels like a sea salt scrub. Great stuff! In addition, this body scrub contains sweet almond oil and shea butter – I guess this is why this scrub makes my skin feel so soft and conditioned. The body wash is wonderful. It’s a clear gel that lathers up nicely and cleanses my skin gently. It smells lovely and it doesn’t feel drying at all. Well done, Flower Pharm!

If you’re wondering what the fragrance is like… it’s a charmingly old-fashioned and pure rose fragrance. And it doesn’t have that sweaty note that most rose fragrances seem to have nowadays. This is the kind of rose I’d like to smell in all rose-scented products. So yes, I would recommend Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose collection! As Flower Pharm’s products seem to be stocked by the most random stores, you should check if your local supermarket, drugstore or bargain store has them. You won’t be disappointed by Flower Pharm products, I promise!

The Body Shop Moroccan Rose

Quite some time ago I was gifted this Moroccan Rose mini set. While I’ve enjoyed the occasional Body Shop product, I’ve never been a hardcore fan of the brand. I wouldn’t have bought this set for myself, but I actually enjoyed both the shower gel and the body butter.

I found The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Shower Gel to be gentle and pleasant. It wasn’t moisturising, but it didn’t dry out my skin either. I liked the scent – rosey, feminine and pleasant – so there’s no reason to complain.

While The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Body Butter is also nicely scented, I found the formula to be rather sticky. However, this body butter did an excellent job moisturising my skin.

The Body Shop’s Moroccan Rose product line has been discontinued, but a new collection called ‘Mountain Rose’ has been introduced instead. The scent is said to have remained the same. I don’t believe I will purchase any of the new Mountain Rose products for myself, but I wouldn’t mind receiving those as a gift. ūüėČ
