A few weeks ago I found that I had run out of my Body Shop shower gel and needed to get one in a hurry. Unfortunately I couldn’t wait to get to the actual store so I popped into a nearby Clicks (they stock TBS products , you know 🙂 ) and the Glazed Apple Body Polish caught my eye. Looking ever so attractive and pretty in all its emerald glory, I couldn’t help but pick it up off the shelf.
While I do tend to go for my usual faves I thought it was time to try another new product and this was it.
It contains walnut shell powder and pumice which is what makes it an excellent body polish. If you have tried body exfoliators before, you will know that they can be quite rough and cannot be used everyday. You should stagger the use of it as it can dry your skin out.
In my opinion, this one is safe to use regularly as it is a gentle exfoliant and lathers up (almost) like a shower gel would. It is gel- like and green in colour with those little magical beads suspended in it.
I find that the smell is light and fruity (it contains apple extract) , which actually does remind you of an apple Fizz Pop which is absolutely fine by me. If you are looking for something that is fresh but not incredibly sweet smelling , then this is definitely one you should try!
This product contains Community Fair Trade honey which assists in balancing out the exfoliating effects on your skin by moisturising it even before you get out of the shower. In winter though – you should definitely invest in a body butter to keep your skin hydrated especially after exfoliating.
The Verdict here is : Buy!
