This is a review of the Lush Turkish Delight Body Polish. This was part of my haul in London.
What it does:
Butter yourself up with our delightfully rosy body polish. Each pot is made with our new soap-base, packed with aphrodisiac jasmine and Turkish rose, smoothing almond oil, moisturizing cocoa butter and neroli, the euphoric essential oil. (from Lush.co.uk)
How to use:
Rub it into your skin in the shower after washing your body, and rinse
Price: 15 GBP/200g (UK), $29.95/7 oz (US), 2980 JPY/200g (Japan)
This translates to $0.12/g (UK), $0.15/g (US), $0.18/g (Japan). I felt that this product was very expensive versus anything else that Lush has. I can't remember any products at Lush which cost over $30.
- smells like real roses. This product contains Rose Absolute, an essential oil. Lush says it takes 1000 rose petals to obtain one drop of Rose Absolute.
- made my skin feel smooth
- expensive. Lush only sells this in the 7oz size pot. I wish they would sell this in smaller containers!
- Not very moisturizing
- the texture was a little bit hard, similar to cold butter. I had to work it between my hands to be able to rub it on my body, but it is too soft to be rubbed on your body in a bar form.
Would I repurchase? no
I was really confused on what this product was supposed to do. It is slightly like a soap, and it needs to be rinsed off. It is supposed to moisturize my skin, but I still needed to use a moisturizer and I did not feel that my skin was moisturized after rinsing it off. My skin felt slightly smoother, but I can get a better effect from a exfoliator and a separate moisturizer.
Hope you enjoyed this review!
