How to use:-

My Experience with The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish:-

This product is my first buy from TBS. I wanted something to get rid of the tan I got from the trip to Goa and the S.A suggested me to use The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish. She said it helps in removing tan , and yes !! It did !! I have been using this from a month now and the tan on my hands is all gone, my hands feel softer than before :-D The consistency of this body polish is neither too runny nor too thick, it’s just perfect and lathers well on the skin. The scrubbing particles are not at all harsh, I really love them. You will feel a lot of exfoliating particles even in a single drop.

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish ReviewThe smell is just like orange candies. I poured little body polish on my hands and my bathroom was full of the orange-ish smell. It leaves the smell behind for an hour which might irritate some people. This body polish will easily last up to 2-3 months even if used daily as only a small quantity is required to make a good lather and it pretty much lathers well. Now that’s a great thing about it and I don’t mind spending this much on a product that last this long. ;-)
