For those who love the sweet floral scent of frangipani, you won’t be disappointed. This body polish has a very concentrated, pleasant frangipani smell, which lingers on the skin (and in the bathroom) after showering. I received mine through the eco beauty subscription service – inthebox.
It looks like a paste, and feels smooth, light, fluffy, and grainy – the latter which aided in exfoliation. When applied and rubbed against my skin, it feels gentle, and I found it a very relaxing experience for the senses. This reminded me of massages I’ve had on my visits to Bali. One thing I noticed was that the grainy particles need a bit of coaxing to be washed off, but this is a minor thing as part of the overall experience.
Afterwards, my skin felt very well moisturised but not oily. Personally, I like it, but I recognise that this might take some getting used to – for those who don’t usually like the feeling of heavier moisturising creams on their body. This also makes an excellent hand and foot scrub.
I felt fresh, relaxed and pampered after this experience.
