Weekly Product Review: The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish

Good evening, good people of the blog-sphere! It's another series of WPR and this time it's a body scrub or polish or whatever you want to call it. This one is from The Body Shop which are almost available in every city all over Indonesia. Remember, I said 'almost'. Those not having TBS in their city can probably buy them through online shops. 

I got this product a few months back when TBS is having a huge sale. However, I haven't been using it since I kept it in the back of my supply drawer. I have been using this product for a week every other day. Even though it says on the package that it can be used daily. At first, I was pretty sure that I wasn't going to like this experience of exfoliating my arms and legs. I still feel weird if I use this on my abdomen, kinda tickles. However, I was proven so wrong because I fell in love with it after the first use!

Best if you want to: Cleanse and exfoliate with a foaming, gel-based scrub that has crushed walnut shells and kiwi seeds and a light strawberry scent.
Best for: normal skin, suitable for everyday use
How it works:
  • Strawberry juice is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants to protect and nourish skin, as well as pore-cleansing salicylic acid; provides natural strawberry fragrance and red color.
  • Community Trade organic honey moisturizes and conditions skin.
  • Sunflower oil and sweet almond oil moisturize and soften skin.

Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Cocamide DEA, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Acrylates Copolymer, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Honey, Kiwi (Actinidia Chinensis) Seed, Fragaria vesca (Strawberry) Juice, Sodium Hydroxide, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Disodium EDTA, Limonene, Cinnamal, Denatonium Benzoate, Salicylic Acid, Linalool, Citral, Red 4, Red 33.

How I Use It
I squeeze out a 3 cm diameter and massage all over my body.

What I Like About It

  • It's in a squeeze tube, so when the product is running out, I can just cut the top and dig the leftovers :)
  • It has a flip cap, not a twist cap
  • The ingredients are all a-okay
  • The scent is just heavenly. I feel like taking a bath with a strawberry slushie
  • The exfoliating particles are large but gentle enough to scrub the dead skin off
  • It gives a pleasant bath-session every time I use this
  • My skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards
  • It's a cruelty-free product

 What I Hate About It

  • It takes a lot of product to scrub my arms and legs

I have already used half of it!

The black dots are the exfoliating beads

Sweet luscious strawberries that I don't normally eat, but I scrubbed with it!

Final Rating
EIGHT out of ten
