Product Review: Tropic Body Smooth Refreshing Polish

Exfoliation should be a key part of any skincare regime whether for face or body. I was sent this body polish to review and going by the ingredients list*, this revitalising body polish is packed with nourishing oils and mineral-rich sea salts that claim to “effectively buff away dead skin cells, smooth and soften, and promote fresh, glowing skin all over”.

The small tub comes with a wooden spoon which I liked from a hygiene perspective. It does not contain microbeads and application was easy. I followed the instructions to:

  1. Gently massage onto dry skin before your shower or bath, focusing on any rough or dry areas.
  2. Rinse away the exfoliating sea salts with warm water and massage the remaining oils into your skin for sensational smoothness.

I however didn’t really like it – I found the salt grains too big for my taste and the scrub was quite greasy. It did however have a fresh, pleasant scent and was moisturising. I cannot say that my skin was any smoother after using it.

Final thoughts:

Despite its lovely fragrance and ingredients, I was not particularly impressed by this body polish. I think that its packaging could be better because some of the oil leaked while in transit to me and there was some more leakage even though I stored it upright. This made the jar a bit messy which I did not like. For these reasons, I would not recommend or purchase it.

Score: 2/5
