In my Birthday Haul I showed you guys that I bought two of the conditioners from The Body Shop. The Body Shop renewed their hair care range a while ago and added a couple of really nice lines to their range. All products are made without silicones, which made me really, really happy. I’ve been meaning to try these products for a while now but I never really got around to actually buying it. Until a little over a month ago. So, I’ve been using them a lot ever since I got them and I do feel like it’s about time for me to review these two conditioners. So, if you’re interested in finding out what the The Body Shop Conditioners in the Strawberry and Fuji Green Tea scent are like, make sure you continue reading this post!
So let’s start talking about the packaging on both products. I think I’ve covered the packaging of these The Body Shop bottles many, many times by now since most of their liquid products come in this packaging. Despite that I’m still going to discuss it today. First of all I want to mention that these conditioners come in three sizes. There’s a mini size that comes with 60 ml. There’s a medium size that comes with 250 ml, that’s the one I have. And there’s also a big size that comes with 400 ml, that’s for those who already know they love this stuff a lot.
The bottle has a very minimalistic design. It’s clear and has a black cap. I really like the look of it. It’s very original and it does really have that Body Shop vibe in my opinion. I also like that you can see the colour of the product through it because it’s pretty but also because it’s very practical. This way you know when you’re product is almost gone and thus you know when it’s time to start taking action and repurchase it.
All in all I’m a big fan of the packaging. I like that it also comes in a huge size so if you’re really loving this product you can stock up on it.
Having said all of that, let’s start talking about the conditioners. Starting off with the Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Hydrating Conditioner. This is the one I was a little less excited about. However, my bestie told me she loved the shampoo from this range, which did give me hope that it was going to be great. According to The Body Shop this is a conditioner enriched with revitalising Japanese green tea. It’s supposed to be a lightweight, hydrating conditioner that basks your hair in an invigoratingly fresh feeling. It’s formulated for normal hair, it should refresh and hydrate the hair and scalp and it’s formulated without silicones. Another fun fact is that it’s 100% vegetarian!
All in all it does sound like a really nice product for my hair type. My hair is very thin and gets greasy really easily. Especially when I use silicones and when things are very hydrating. Those two things really weigh down my hair. However, I have experienced that this conditioner actually doesn’t do that. It’s actually lightweight like they claim it is. Correct my if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure that that’s because it’s formulated with green tea. I always feel like green tea products are very lightweight and refreshing and this product proves that.
In terms of scent it does actually smell like the shower gel from the same range. It’s very fresh and well, leaf-like smelling. I don’t think that makes any sense but whatever. The consistency of the conditioner is really nice as well. It’s creamy but it’s not thick or rich at all. It feels like a rather thick shampoo but in fact it’s a conditioner.
After using this conditioner my hair feels really, really nice and soft. It doesn’t tangle at all and is really easy to comb through. It actually makes my hair very pretty and shiny and all of that without the use of silicones! In addition to that I do feel like it hydrates my hair as my ends are super soft and not dry at all after using this conditioner. I’m really impressed by how well this product performs on me. I totally didn’t expect that!

Moving on to the second conditioner. The one that I did have very high hopes for. This is the Strawberry Clearly Glossing Conditioner. Just like the Fuji Green Tea one this one smells exactly like the other products from the strawberry range. This is a very, very sweet smelling range so I don’t think that the smell is for everybody. But since this is just a conditioner and therefore not as strong as let’s say the body butter, I can handle it.
According to The Body Shop their Strawberry Clearly Glossing Conditioner is made to revive dull hair. It should leave your locks smoother, shinier and smelling of fresh Italian strawberries. The formula is formulated without silicones and it’s 100% began. The formula should make detangling easier. It’s formulated for dull hair and leaves the hair moisturised and full of shine.
Even though my hair isn’t always that dull, I did really get interested in this conditioner after reading those claims. Because my hair is very greasy I do most often use products that don’t necessarily make my hair look very shiny. Therefore I figured this product could be pretty great for me. I ended up giving it a good old try and yup, it’s as amazing as I expected it to be. It has a pretty similar feel to it as the Fuji Green Tea Conditioner does but this one isn’t as refreshing. It’s aimed at making your hair glossy and it really does do that. It makes my hair feel so soft and look so shiny. Especially when I blow dry it afterwards. You guys I love the way that looks!
Part of their claims is also about the scent of it. They are telling you that it will make your hair smell of strawberries. In a way it does, but it’s not as strong as you might think. The Fuji Green Tea one makes your hair smell of that too, not more or less strong than this one does. It’s not a scent that’s very prominent so if you don’t like the smell of either of these two conditioners, don’t worry!

All in all I’m really happy I decided to try these two conditioners. I actually like them more than I thought I would. They really get the job done and they work perfectly for my thin and greasy hair. They are both really lightweight and they make my hair feel really soft and add a nice shine to my hair. I do actually think that these are some of the best conditioners I have tried so far. When either one of them runs out I will repurchase it. Maybe even the big version of them!
With that being said I think it’s time to end todays post. Thank you so much for reading and be sure to let me know what you use to condition your hair!
