HERBIVORE COCO ROSE COCONUT OIL BODY POLISH
Let me start off my stating that I'm going to have to repurchase HERBIVORE'S Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish for the rest of my existence. It's THAT DAMN GOOD. I have the driest skin on the plant. Most products that i apply to my body absorb in seconds and then I'm parched again. The KP (Keratosis pilaris) on my arms and legs don't make it any better.
This scrub has been a godsend. It is made up of Virgin Coconut Oil for major hydration and beneficial proteins for both in and outside of your body (insert longest "yeah boiiiiiiiiii" ever) Moroccan Rose is soothing, making it perfect for even the most sensitive skin and also works as an antibacterial and astringent to purify your pores while the Sugar. although isn't super abrasive but is still does the job of gently exfoliating your skin enough to renew it and have it glowing.
This has become a staple in my nighttime shower routine. I shower with my regular Body Bar, and then after I rinse I start to apply this Body Polish all over but paying the most attention to the problem areas on my arms and legs. I rub and exfoliate for a couple of minutes while my skin soaks it up and then I rise with lukewarm/cool water. My skin is left hydrated and a bit more supple and super moisturized. At first I was in disbelief because I didn't think anything could hydrate my skin but this scrub did absolute wonders. I didn't have uncomfortable dry skin while asleep at night and it still felt moisturized in the morning when I woke up. It is a bit oily but I love that because for me that is needed (like I said I have the most parched skin on the planet). I don't think the light rose scent is over powering, it's quite subtle which is nice. Another plus is that this made my legs post shave, feel so nice with zero irritation. This scrub is not only nourishing but also luxurious because it makes you feel pampered after you use it.
The single reason I took away half of a star is because I really wish this came in a larger size. This will last only 2 weeks tops. PLEASE HERBIVORE, MAKE A LUXURY SIZE!!!!
This product retails for about $36 and it is sold at multiple stores including Sephora.com and UrbanOutfitters.com as well as the brand's own site HerbivoreBotanicals.com. It is quite pricey for not lasting more than 10 uses maximum (and that's pushing it) I will justify the price by saying this is a MEGA treat, especially for those of you like me with supremely dry skin. It's an actual relief in a jar.
ROSE TIP: THIS PAIRS SO WELL WITH THE OUAI ROSE HAIR AND BODY OIL.
