Let me start by putting a disclaimer: as a writer and a customer, I’ve been using The Body Shop from the first month they came to India. And as much as I like their skincare range and for adding Moringa Body Butter and Blueberry Scrub to my vanity, The Body Shop British Rose Body Yoghurt just doesn’t do it for me.
Unlike their disc-shaped body butters, The Body Shop Body Yoghurt looks like it sounds too. Imagine enjoying a delish cup of flavoured yoghurt. Yeah, full points to TBS for their cute packaging but then when have they ever failed there?
What’s The Difference Between A Body Cream And A Yoghurt?
The same difference that’s between a serum, a face cream and a body butter. Consistency and texture. A body butter usually doesn’t have oil, its held together by essential oils and emollients hence looks like solidified butter too. And body lotions are water or glycerin based, and therefore, runnier in texture. The Body Yoghurt’s consistency is more like whipped, and it actually reminded me of amazing fellow beauty bloggers who get beeswax, cacao butter at home to make their own concoctions.
While The Body Shop Body Yoghurt is formulated with almond milk, it didn’t even manage to keep my skin soft for 2 hours! I gotta say, I was surprised because when you swipe a little product, you feel like you don’t need much and your skin feels soft but that’s just for a few minutes. By the time I was ready to step out the door, it looked like I’d forgotten to hydrate my skin.
I applied it a few times, and as much as I love the lingering smell of British Rose, the gel-like consistency makes the Body Yoghurt low on hydration.
