Review: The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter and Cream Scrub


Move over Fuzzy Peach, you've got competition!

I was super excited (maybe a bit too much...) when it was announced that the Body Shop was introducing their Vineyard Peach fragrance. They've had Fuzzy Peach shower gel for years, but it was lonely, why did they never make it any Fuzzy Peach friends? Anyway, Vineyard Peach is here, and it is fabulous!

Vineyard Peach Body Butter is the closest thing you can get to a fresh peach. It smells so amazingly real that it's almost a bit scary. It is clear why they had to remind people not to eat the stuff (see photo above.) One sniff and you're transported to the first bite of a juicy summer peach. I love peaches, and my jebzus, do I ever LOVE this. The formula is perfect; it's thick and hydrating, without being heavy or greasy. The formula is not the harder one that resembles actual butter (TBS body butter users know what I mean) but a softer formula that smooths onto skin easily. The scent lingers for hours, and it really does live up to it's 24 hour moisture claims.

Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub is a creamy scrub filled with bits of natural exfoliants and moisturizing oils like babassu, soya and marula to name a few. I had never used a cream scrub from TBS and to be honest wasn't sure if it would be scrubby enough for my exfoliation needs. I was wrong, it works quite well and leaves skin both silky smooth and a light peach scent. Upon first sniff, the scrub does not seem as aromatic as the butter, but once you get in the shower and scrub down, it is just as heavenly.

If you couldn't tell, I absolutely adore this fragrance. I didn't pick up the Vineyard Peach shower gel, as I do have a couple Fuzzy Peach bottles stashed away, but I think I'll need to double, or triple up on the body butter. With it's limited edition status, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Overall, if you're a peach lover, hustle your bustle to the Body Shop asap!

Availability: The Body Shop, $19 each.

  1. Vineyard Peach, beautiful sounding! I will definitely be trying this, I love the thick texture of their body butters. I've tried their lemon body scrub but it sucked, but this one looks better.

    1. I haven't tried any of the lemon products, is it a cream scrub as well? That's too bad though, I hate when scrubs are too gentle.
