The Body Shop Pomegranate Body Polish

 I’ll be reviewing The Body Shop’s Pomegranate Body Polish today~

This body soap + scrub gives off a delightful fruity scent! Squeeze a tiny bit on your palms and rub accordingly. I really love its vibrant red colour and its scent.

 Pretty~

 

As the exfoliating granules are gentler than the other body scrubs (the ones in the tubs), you can use it daily (as stated on the tube); and yet it gets the job done, leaving the skin super smooth! Another plus point is that it comes in a tube, so it’s waaaay more hygienic than dipping your fingers into a tub everytime you want to use it 🙂

  

This body polish doesn’t dry out your skin- it leaves it feeling moisturised, clean, and super soft and baby-like! I think you can even skip the after-bath moisturiser ‘cos my skin feels really bouncy and soft, like after a good moisturiser. It doesn’t feel oily or anything, don’t you worry.

I really like how the scent lingers for an hour or so after you bathe, and it’s not too cloying or strong 🙂

I think this scrub can also lighten your skin tone (by scrubbing away the dead skin), and it does remove some hairs while you’re at it (this may be just me), so I use it on my legs and underarms to brighten it up. I think it works but I searched the Net and there doesn’t seem to be much said about it ;-;

So maybe they haven’t tried or noticed it yet. There is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in this, which can’t be very good for the skin, but maybe that’s why there is brightening properties ._.

It is rather tempting to use it everyday but I really want to make this tube last!  Anyway, I think you shouldn’t use scrubs, no matter how gentle, on a daily basis because it stresses your skin out.

Perhaps you could buy the Strawberry Body Polish that’s going on offer now, for Valentine’s Day. Buy 2 products from the Chocolate/ Strawberry Bath range, and get 20% off, or 3 products and get 30% off!!

Strawberry is a delicious scent as well, but I prefer pomegranate because you get strawberry-scented things everywhere.

Extra tip:

I sometimes mix this in with my facial cleanser and viola! A face scrub! Do a spot test if you are known to have sensitive skin 🙂 But it really makes my face feel baby-smooth and soft~~ * sighhhh * What’s not to love about this?
