In Essence Detox Body Polish

So far I've managed to keep my pre-Christmas sale purchase a secret from everyone, including my closest beauty friends. Patience is a virtue, my friends!

Since Glossqueen is the most persistent of them all, this review is dedicated to her. I'd also like to thank her for inspiring me to include the ingredients list.

It smells exotic in it's container. Upon application: the minty smell permeates the shower room, uplifting my feeling while clearing up my sinuses as an added bonus. It does a very good job polishing my skin. The scrub melts away as a milky white liquid when in contact with water, leaving my skin pleasantly smooth. It doesn't dry my skin and doesn't leave an oily muck like other moisturising scrubs I've used.

For daily exfoliation, use this body scrub on damp skin. For weekly deep cleansing: apply on dry skin before washing in the shower.

Verdict: 5 star body polish. Very musical (= highly recommended).

Maris sal (Sea Salt), Glycerin, PEG-8, Oryza sativa (Rice) bran, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Beeswax, Cetearyl alcohol, Disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter), Olea europaea (Olive) oil, Buxus chinesis (Jojoba) oil, Macrocystis pyrifera (Kelp) extract, Panax ginseng (Ginseng) extract, Citrus grandis (Grapefruit) oil, Mentha piperita (Peppermint) leaf oil, Citrus medica limonum (Lemon) peel oil, Citrus aurantifolia (Lime) oil, Litsea cubeba (May chang) fruit oil, Pelargonium graveolens (Geranium) flower oil, Zingiber officionale (Ginger) root oil, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, Silica.

P.S. My copyrighted topic of the week is peppermint. So I'll be reviewing other pepperminty products and posting pepperminty recipes in the next few days. What about Italy? Well, since my skin is nice and smooth now, I'll be talking about smooth leather coats to complement my look. Which brings me to Florence...

Finally I start to get a few idea's about what you bought, you're such a tease! But I know you bought more and am waiting impatiently to find out the rest of your haul :)

Finally the suspense is broken - this looks like a super find! I do love all things peppermint, so I am looking forward to more products and recipes.

I still have more things up my sleeves! Nothing peppermint about it whatsoever. So the suspense is on again. LOL.

Dang Music, you are such a tease! At this rate you'll still be telling me about your haul in June, the suspense is killing me!
