The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Grapeseed Glossing Serum from The Body Shop that I picked up during a recent haul.

The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum

Here’s what is says on the website:

A glossing serum that adds great gloss and shine to the hair. It also helps to moisturize the hair and is easily washed out. Suitable for dull/frizzy hair.

Here’s the list of ingredients:

Cyclomethicone, Dimethiconol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Buxus Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Limonene, Fragrance, Linalool, Citral, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Geraniol, Citronellol, Eugenol, Isoeugenol.

My experience: I’ve been using the Grapeseed Glossing Serum for a few weeks now because the cold weather has been making my hair prone to being a little drier and frizzier (and due to hat wearing, often staticky). The product is a clear serum, with that  not quite a liquid but not quite a gel texture that I find most serums to be. It does make my hair dark hair glossy, keep the ends moisturized, and helps tame the winter frizz / static that I’ve been experiencing lately.

As with most serums and hair oils, I would recommend keeping it away from your roots and scalp, otherwise you might end up looking a little greasy. The serum does have a scent. I can pick out the mild grapeseed scent as well as something that I can’t quite identify, but it doesn’t bother me, and it fades quickly enough (if scents bother you).

The Grapeseed Glossing Serum is on sale on the Canadian Body Shop website for $5 (regularly $12) for 75ml / 2.5 fl oz.

I’m looking forward to testing this serum out more when the weather gets warmer to see how my hair likes it in humid conditions. If I have any of the serum left by then, or if it is still available to repurchase, I’ll revisit this post and give a warm weather review.

Have you tried this hair serum? If not, what serums have you used?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Disclosure: I purchased this!

  1. Never even heard of this product from the Body Shop. I’ve not had great experiences with their hair care in general – I find they to be overly fragranced and too heavy for my hair. This serum (HAIR serum – what a time to be alive!) does sound good though… I’ve been using a light hair oil lately for my ends which has been helping but I have to really careful or else it weighs down my hair.

    1. My hair is thick and prone to epic ginormousness, so unless I accidentally get it too close to my roots, it helps tame the beast, haha!
      I also have an awesome hair oil from Haus of Gloi that I love, but I wanted to try something new (and for $5, I was willing to take a chance on it).

  2. Interesting. Although I don’t like stuff that makes your hair super oily either as my hair gets oily within 24 hrs and have to use dry shampoo! 😖 I’m still looking for something that will keep my hair moisturized and tame the frizz. Looking forward to more thoughts you may have on this 😄

  3. This sounds nice! I always apply too much and end up looking like a grease ball but I think now that my hair is longer I might do a better job of keeping it from the roots. The scent sounds nice too.

  4. I should give The Body Shop a second look when it comes to their haircare & skincare line. I always just buy some body stuff 😦
    My hair is so dry that it would benefit from this oil !!! Worth trying for 5$ 😀
