The Body Shop: Strawberry Body Polish

The Body Shop‘s ‘Strawberry Body Polish‘ is a sweet smelling, exfoliating polish that can used in the shower everyday. It also smells amazing, feels great, and is an absolute joy to use. The Body Shop website describes the body polish as:

Have good, clean fun and smooth skin at the same time thanks to this fragrance foaming gel-based scrub that’s gentle enough to use everyday. Contains Community Fair Trade organic honey and Natural strawberry extract to moisturise and condition. 

bodypolishThe polish does all this and more. First off, the smell is of the body polish is, quite obviously, that of strawberries. However the honey within the product makes the scent much more sweeter and somehow deeper.

After the scent of the product, it is the texture of the body polish that wins you over. The polish is quite thick with small kiwi seeds mixed throughout the gel. These, coupled with the exfoliating nature of the gel, mix to create a truly wonderful experience.

Priced at $11.95 (AUD) the body polish is a tad expensive for 200 ml. However, I have found that this cost is offset by the small amount of gel needed to create a sizable lather. I have had my body polish for two months now and at writing this have used only half of the gel. However, I do realise that this all comes down to personal preference and that we each all use things or amounts differently.

For the environmentally minded, all of The Body Shop’s products are vegetarian and do not test on animals. The body polish additionally does not include microplastic beads and in a statement released by The Body Shop, states that they are in the process of phasing out the use of microplastics or polyethylene completely.

Overall The Body Shop’s ‘Strawberry Body Polish’ is a wonderful product. Whenever I use this I absolutely enjoy the experience both in and out of the bathroom. In addition to all of this the wonderful strawberry scent lingers for a while afterwards. If you find yourself walking past The Body Shop, I strongly urge you to pop in an have a smell of the sample ‘Strawberry Body Polish,’ you won’t regret it!
