Those who know me, know that I’m a huge fan of the Body Yogurts from The Body Shop. For the longest time I’ve been using the Almond Milk and British Rose Body Yogurts non-stop and so is my mom. They are just amazing. From the formula to their scents, I love them. So it was a logical move for me to start purchasing more scents from this body yogurt range. And so I did. I bought two new scents to add to my collection. Starting with the limited edition Totally Tangled Ginger Body Yogurt. I’ve been using it a lot these past couple of weeks so it’s about time for me to review them. Just make sure you continue reading this post!
The Totally Tangled Ginger Body Yogurt from The Body Shop comes in the typical Body Yogurt container. It’s a jar with a rounded bottom and an oversized lid. The jar itself has a really pretty orange colour to it and the lid is decorated with images of ginger. I find the design very appealing and pretty looking. The colours go really well together and it’s just a good look. It’s very autumnal as well, which made me want to buy this body yogurt even more.
The Body Yogurts from The Body Shop come in a very decent sized jar filled with 200 ml of product. That does sound very average, but somehow these Body Yogurts always last me forever. I recently finished my Almond Milk Body Yogurt and I had been using that for an entire year. And please note: I used it a lot. A little bit of this product just goes a very long way. I’m telling ya!
All in all I do think that the design and the size of the packaging on this Ginger Body Yogurt is really nice. I like to look at it and I’m glad I can use it as much as I want without worrying about finishing it in a week time.

To be completely honest with you guys, I don’t have much experience with ginger. I’ve had ginger tea before, but I had no clue what it was supposed to smell like. And somehow I didn’t have the best expectation of the scent. It might seem weird that I bought it anyway, but well, everything for the blog right? No just kidding, I was very curious about it so I decided to take a leap of faith and just go for it.
When I first smelled this Ginger Body Yogurt I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. I thought it smelled okay. But once I got into it and used it a couple of times I actually grew to love the way it smells. Nowadays I actually really love and appreciate what this Body Yogurt smells like and it has become a regular of mine.
If I had to describe the scent of this Body Yogurt in short I’d say it’s a very spicy, autumnal scent. It’s warm yet fresh and spicy in a very earthy way. It smells very natural in a way. I’m terrible at describing scents so I totally get it if this doesn’t make any sense to you, but that’s all I can do. I’m sorry.
Having talked about the scent for just a while, let’s move on to the product itself. The formula, the effect, everything like that. The thing with the Body Yogurts is that they have a very unique formula. They are very lightweight and almost gel-like in a creamy way. They are rich, but lightweight rich. It’s a very unique substance and it’s something that does match really well with what I like and all.
Like I said, a little bit of Body Yogurt does go a very long way. You only need a tiny little bit to cover your entire body with this product. Or well, for me it does. I like to use my products rather sparingly. My mom goes through these jars a lot quicker than I do. But even for her these jars do last her a relatively long time. Another benefit of this lightweight formula is that the product sinks into the skin really, really quickly. Like you can get dressed immediately afterwards without still being wet or sticky. It’s super quick to use.
You might wonder if something so lightweight can be hydrating at the same time. Well I do think it is. It’s probably not comparable to a body butter, but for what it is it is very moisturising. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth and I haven’t experienced any dry areas or patches since I’ve been using this.
All in all the The Body Shop Totally Tangled Ginger Body Yogurt is just absolutely amazing. I’m super impressed by how much I like the scent. It had to grow on me, but now I love it. It’s super autumnal and something totally different than what I already have. And that’s a very unique thing if you have a large stash of body care products. Anyway, I knew I was going to love the formula on this product and I sure do. It’s super lightweight, quick and easy to use and it leaves my skin feeling super moisturised. I’m a huge fan of this!
With that being said I’m going to end today’s review. Thank you guys so much for reading it and be sure to let me know if you have any experience with the Body Yogurts from The Body Shop!
