Indulgent Vacation Getaway For Dry Skin!

Overall, this product works well as a body polish and to exfoliate skin, especially on legs, elbows, and other dry rough areas. But it is difficult to use because it is so thick and tough to work with, it also washes off too easily to use near water. A good product for the woman who has every bath product.
Great smell, good value for price, removes dry, dead skin, good for use before shaving.
Rinses off with a drop of water, difficult to massage in, can irritate sensitive skin.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product is a really firm and rough scrub, perfect for use before shaving or for dry skin. It's pretty femininely packaged and the smell is pretty girly, but it wouldn't be out of place on any bathroom shelf.
The label reads: I'm not really here, I'm really lounging poolside at the beachfront resort, and then there is a lovely blurb about said resort. It is a decadent, rich body product that will leave you feeling pampered. It is rather coarse and rough on the skin, so it's great if you have dry skin, or if you regularly use a luffa or some other exfoliant. It's a body polish, not a lotion or bath salt.

It claims to be moisturizing on the label, but I found that it left me pretty dry after use, but that's ok, because I don't expect my exfolient to moisturize. Below is a full list of ingredients, so check that before using, as it contains alcohol and some other possibly allergenic ingredients.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It is very thick, almost like chilled cookie dough, and very grainy, because it contains sand and whole cranberry seeds. It is primarily a scrub and exfoliant, so it is very rough and coarse. It has to be scoped of dug out firmly with fingers, and wouldn't really work well with just a pouf or luffa, because it is so thick. It is called a sugared body polish for a reason, it really is used like a polish, firmly rubbed into skin to buffer away dead, dry skin. It is NOT for people with sensitive, or delicate skin.

A full list of ingredients:
Sucrose, butyrospermum Parkii(Shea Butter) Fruit, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Catearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance, Tocopheryl (Vitamin E), Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) seeds, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol.

So as you can see, it has a lot of ingredients that could easily dry out your skin or cause an allergic reaction. It worked great for me, but make sure you check this list before you buy it if you have sensitive skin. It left my skin feeling raw, clean and fresh.

Taste / Aroma

I only tasted it for the sake of this review, and while it was sweet and fruity, I wouldn't recommend it as a snack. The smell is strong of cranberry and a hint of something that smells like catnip to me. But it smells very clean and fresh and it's not at all overwhelming. I find that after use the smell is gone by the time I dry off, which is great because I don't like smelling like a billion different things before I even start my day.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


So after you dig some out and rub it into your skin, I would avoid water if you want to actually exfoliate. I found that even a few drops would make it far too runny to do any good and it just slid off. A lot needs to be used to actually buffer off any skin. On the plus side, it does wash off super easy. I found it too thick and grainy to actually spread, and it was a too rough to use on my face. But it was great for pre-shaving my legs. I needed to turn off the water first though, otherwise it would just run off.

I know the tub says for use in bath and shower, but I would be hesitant to use it in a bath, because it is so sugary (sucrose is the first ingredient) and it that were to get anywhere naughty, it would likely spell out yeast infection.


It came just in that little tub and with a cover to seal in freshness. Sturdy, screw off top, waterproof. 8.5 oz by Noa Soap, Radio from LA, California.
Follow-up commentary
This product is still great, I found that dripping a bit of water into it before closing it up makes it softer for the next use, and easier to spread. It still has an odd smell, not bad, just odd. I can't shake the feeling that it's cranberry catnip scrub.

    It sounds like an odd type of product, neither a moisturizer or a massaging cream. Thanks for reviewing it.
