The Body Shop Originals Collection: The Body Shop Ice Blue Shampoo Review

Have I told you lately how much I adore mint?! And mint in my shampoo? Oh thank the gods above! I love that.


The Body Shop Ice Blue Shampoo is making my world go right round baby, right round! Sooooo you might think Lush Ice Blue Shampoo right away but it’s actually quite different so don’t think you have a dupe on your hands here as for me the products are completely different.

The Body Shop Ice Blue Shampoo is one of those shampoos that leaves hair really soft and invigorated, quite clarifying in many ways. It tingles a fair bit when lathered on and gives off a hint of minty freshness but also has a very fresh scent to it as well and perhaps a little herbal, so it’s not ALL mint. I use it when my hair feels like it weights 10 pounds to heavy as it clarifies beautifully due to the lack of silicons in the formula, seriously try it without conditioner and you’ll notice your hair is considerably softer after use.

Of course, part of it’s appeal is the cooling mint which makes your scalp whistle and perhaps sing a little diddy. It’s produces a slight cool tingle and is quite refreshing! Any hair type can take advantage but those who need clarifying or have oily hair will see the best results in my opinion. My hair is pretty dry and it seems to like it but when my hair is feeling lackluster or oily due to product build up, I do notice the best results.

Quite a lovely little shampoo and sadly back for a limited time unless you vote to keep it! Visit to find your favorites from the Body Shop Originals Collection and help to keep them in stock!

Muse Approved for purchase!

I know dozens of you probably already hauled it!

    mint = must ๐Ÿ™‚ ever try the co bigelow mint shampoo/conditioner? seems like this one is much more clarifying but curious how they compare?

    • the Muse

      dina I don’t really like the co one…it seems off to me? I think this is WAY more clarifying to me as I think the CO one is loaded up with silicons ๐Ÿ˜›
