My love for body scrub dates back to my DIY days, where I had the tradition of using sugar and honey scrubs on my body. Even though the results were impressive, I found out that my skin was drying out after every use.
Hence, I had to try commercial scrubs. Over the years, I have tried a lot of body scrubs but fell out of love with them after the first bottle. My skin tends to dry out especially after sunburn so I wanted something that was mild, a bit “liquid” and rinses quickly after a light wash.
After flicking through several scrubs on the shelf, I decided to try out the Rose Blanche body polish for reasons I will share with you in the next session.
The main reason I went for this body scrub was because of the size as well as the packaging. I was critical of not going for something big, so there won’t be leftover if the result doesn’t turn out as expected.
As you would expect, there’s nothing really much going on with the packaging. However, I like the fact that it conveys some amount of luxury, even if it doesn’t scream “expensive.”
It’s just a simple medium see-through thick glass jar and holds 6.6 Oz of the total content. However, the bottle is a bit fragile; hence you have to handle with care as it might slip when in use. Also, ensure you store in a place where it doesn’t accidentally slip and smash into pieces and always tighten the cover after each use.
The body polish is a blend of several ingredients which include Hemp butter, sugar, virgin coconut oil, and Moroccan Rose. Its amazing smell is primarily due to the presence of Moroccan rose while it’s moisturizing effect is owed to coconut oil. You will find fine particles of sugar in it. At first, I was scared it was going to hurt when I apply on my skin.
Luckily, that didn’t happen. Instead, the particles made light work of shedding dead cells to reveal a healthy-looking skin. What’s even better is that you don’t need much and neither does the oil leave any residue behind. You shouldn’t have a hard time washing or rinsing it out but the more it stays in the better your skin looks.
Full list of ingredients: Sucrose (Sugar), Cocos Nucifera (Organic Virgin Coconut) Oil, Capric Triglycerides (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Butter, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Damascena (Moroccan Rose) Absolute, Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) extract
Personally, I am against the idea of using body scrubs regularly. It doesn’t take long before it starts irritating the skin and no matter what the manufacturers say, it’s better to identify what suits your skin. In this case, it’s suggested that you use three to four times a week. But, that didn’t go down well with me because of my skin type but it might for some people.
I would say this is a really nice body scrub, and for the first time in several years, I have finally found a scrub I will be using for a second time. I love the feeling on my skin and the fine sugar leaves my skin smooth and silky. However, I was careful not to use on my face due to my past experience but you’re free to try it out and tell us if it worked.
