Tropic Body Smooth Refreshing Polish review
Happy snowday! If you're getting fed up with the weather as much as I am, it's time to treat yourself to a mini pamper and indulge in some me-time in the bathroom. This week's pampering treat of choice is Tropic's luxurious Body Smooth Refreshing Polish.

What Is It?
Tropic Body Smooth Refreshing Polish is a high-end, all-natural body scrub that gently but effectively exfoliates, buffing away dull dead skin cells, to reveal brighter and smoother skin all over the body. It's the first product that founder Susan Ma created when she was just 15 years old and has been a bestseller for Tropic ever since. 

Organic Sea Salts, Organic Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin E, Essential Oils of Australian Lemon Myrtle, Eucalyptus, Lime, Lemon, Bergamot and Peppermint. Tropic is certified cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Products are made in the UK.

How Do I Use It?
Scoop out a handful and gently massage it into dry skin, focusing on any particularly rough or dry areas like elbows, heels, knees etc. Rinse off in the bath or shower and massage any excess oils into the skin to thoroughly hydrate and soften.

Overall thoughts
The scent of Body Smooth is so incredibly addictive and wonderfully uplifting thanks to all of those amazing citrusy essential oils in the formula. Texture wise, it has an almost whipped mousse style consistency, with lots of fine but scrubby sea salt crystals mixed in throughout. This body polish definitely does the job, but it doesn't feel scratchy, irritating or abrasive. It leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and smooth afterwards, and I particularly like using it before applying fake tan for the most flawless results possible. 

I must admit that I was surprised when I saw that the jar is plastic and not glass, given it's price point, though this does it make it easier to use in the bath or shower so I can see why they've chosen to package it in this way (Tropic have since gotten in touch to say that they use plastic packaging for this product to ensure safety to their customers due to the oils in the scrub which could cause handling to be slippery). It's definitely a luxury product with the price tag to match, but if you have the cash to splash and fancy treating yourself, it's a really beautiful pampering product and makes you feel like a million dollars whenever you use it! Maybe something to also consider gifting for Mother's Day?
