The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish Review
Monsoon is finally here! The frequent showers and of course the sun. This damages the skin making it tanned and dull. During this season we definitely require something to keep the tan in control and keep her skin fresh and glowing. After a lot of research, online Youtube tutorials and articles, I found this very effective scrub from The Body Shop. This scrub not only removes dead skin impurities but also tan due to excessive exposure to the sun. I went to Goa twice in two months and had this severe tan which I thought would be impossible to get rid off. Thankfully this scrub worked efficiently in getting back my natural skin color in a time span of almost a 2 weeks. The name of the product is The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish. Read on to find my experience with this lovely product.

My experience with The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish
The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish comes in a transparent plastic tube with a huge white flip-flop cap on it. Being a colorless tube, it is very easy to keep a check on the product quantity while using. The scrub does not spill out which prevents product wastage. You can find all the necessary information printed on the product itself. Overall the product comes in a hygienic and travel-friendly packaging.
Texture and consistency:
The scrub is semi-liquid in texture and has small scrubbing granules in it. The granules do not feel harsh on the skin while scrubbing. It spreads easily and only a small amount of it is good enough for one-time use. Most of the scrubs are extremely creamy, because of which a large amount of the product is required and definitely a lot of time is spent while scrubbing. This one is an absolute opposite and easy to use.
Fragrance The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish
The Body Shop products are known for their excellent aroma in almost all of their skincare products. This product also doesn’t disappoint when it comes to their unique smell. It has an orangish smell which is very refreshing. The fragrance stays well for about 2 hours. For me this scrub is an escape from the daily work regime.

How Do I use it?
I use a small amount of the scrub initially and apply it to areas that require immediate action against the tan. Then I scrub using a loofah to remove any leftover granules that might get stuck if they are not removed properly.
One of the things about The Body Shop products is that they are totally safe to use, even on the skin directly. One can use it without any problem regarding harsh chemicals. Most of the people with sensitive skin might I have an issue of developing rated after scrubbing, but I am sure this one would not cause any allergy.
From the first wash itself, I could observe my skin glowing leaving behind a refreshing fragrance. By the end of the second week, all my tan vanished and my skin returned back to its natural skin tone with an added extra glow. I am really satisfied with this amazing tan removal scrub and this is going to be my constant savior, all through the summer.
