Body shop, as everyone knows is an international brand that has more than skin care. They have luxury products like shower gels, highlighters, bronzers, etc. There are a few products in body shop that are indeed amazing and do the job which has been claimed. So I grabbed my hands on the satsuma body puree which was fortunately on 50 percent sale (wow!!). Some products in this brand are a little hyped up. They don’t really give any results but are still highly priced, etc. but the good thing is that some products are indeed great and a part of this money goes to the development of under privileged children in Africa. Now moving to the product review, today I will be reviewing Satsuma Body Shop Body Puree the The Body Shop Satsuma body pure eto be exact.
Basic information about The Body Shop Satsuma Body Puree
Moisturizing the face and body are equally important. There are different kinds of body lotions that are available in the market. There are body butter which can be used by people who have extremely dry skin. There are light body lotions which can be used by people who have normal or oily skin because these are much lighter in texture and are easily absorbed without leaving residues or being sticky. Yes, it is necessary to moisturize oily skin as well. The Body Shop products can be used by people who have any type of skin.
Rs 695 (but I got it for Rs 350 on a sale)
250ml/ 8.4 oz
It has 13 community fair trade ingredients which help provide 48-hour hydration. It has a light watery texture which is easily absorbed by the skin. A little product goes a long way. If applied to very dry areas, it provides hydration and nourishment to the skin. Apart from this, it has cold pressed Satsuma oil from Brazil that contains fatty acids which help heal the skin from free-radical damage and improve the quality of the skin. When oils are extracted using cold pressed methods, all its goodness and essential components are preserved.
How to use
Take a generous amount of the body puree and slather it on to the dry areas or just pamper yourself with the body puree, since it is always ok to pamper one’s skin, right ladies?!
My experience with The Body Shop Satsuma Body Puree
It comes in a long 250ml tube which has a pump attached to it. Since it contains a pump, it is easier to use and eliminates the chances of contamination. The puree is light orange in color, so is the body puree.
It has the smell of tangerine orange which helps uplift the mood and gives a very refreshing feeling.
Firstly, the main attraction for me was that it was on a 50 percent sale and it is light textured which would get absorbed in the skin easily. Also, it has a pump tube which is very advantageous for people who use it are in a hurry. This would control the amount of product that comes out and eliminates the chances of contamination from bare hands touching the butter every time. I tend to have extremely dry legs and elbow and oily skin at the same time, so I thought of trying this product. It has an empowering smell of tangy orange which I absolutely love. This nourishes and moisturizes the dry areas of skin. It gives really good hydration. The fragrance doesn’t really stay for 48 hours but the moisturization does. This product is optimal to be used during the day or the night time because it gets easily absorbed and there are no chances of attracting dirt or being sticky. The product has the right consistency and hence melts like butter. In all, this is amazing and a must-have product in every girl’s skin care regimen.

Would I repurchase or recommend?
Definitely, I would recommend this product as well as repurchase this. I would give this product a 4/5 even though the pricing is extremely high because these products are best to buy during a sale. Some products come on sale because their expiry dates would be near, but when I purchased this, the product could be used for 2 years. I have finished more than half of the box already. It smells amazing and feels amazing on the skin. It is definitely a treat for the skin. So ladies, give it a try.
