As you probably saw in yesterday's post, I received a Body Shop gift set for my birthday this year. Included in the package were 4 different Limited Edition Cranberry Joy products - one of which was this body polish. I've been completely addicted to body scrubs since I discovered them earlier this year, so naturally this was the first product out of the selection that I gravitated to first.
After a couple of test runs in the shower, I can solemnly swear down that I love this scrub! It's completely different to all the other scrubs I own which makes it a new scrub sensation! Haha.
This product comes out as more of a thin gel with little black seeds in - I'm guessing these are from the cranberries. The seed part is actually the exfoliant as there are no micro-beads to speak of. This means that the scrub is incredibly gentle and could be used on a daily basis. It lathers to a lovely soapy consistency which means that it could easily double as a shower gel I feel. The polish buff away your dead skin cells and fills your shower with a heavenly, fruity scent. I think the smell shares a strawberry and cranberry fragrance though there is only cranberry noted on the ingredients. Either way, it smells yummy to me! Extracts of Honey are included to help your skin feel nourished, soft and supple.
I got the 75ml tube of this in my gift set but I'm awfully tempted to head back and get the 200ml as it has gone into sale for just a fiver! What a bargin. I definitely recommend checking this out if you love scrubs just as much as I do, or are looking for a last minute stocking stuffer!
