Boots Botanics Bathing Enlivening Body Polish
A Little About The Product and What It Claims:
This body polish belongs to Boots Botanics range, which they have produced in collaboration with Kew. (Kew is the Royal Botanical Gardens in London that is spread over 121 hectares; awesome place, have been there. It is also an important botanical research and education institution. So, if they have authenticated the natural ingredients used in this body polish, then it should be good I presume).
The active ingredients in the polish are crushed Apricot Seed and Centella and these help to give soft and radiant skin, they claim. The crushed seeds lift away dirt and dead skin, while cocoa butter smooths and nourishes the radiant skin revealed. You need to apply to damp skin using circular movements and then rinse off thoroughly.

My Experience with Boots Botanics Bathing Enlivening Body Polish:
The body polish has a very creamy texture, but it washes off well and does not leave behind any feeling of stickiness or greasiness. However, the crushed seeds are so tiny and fine that it does not work as a good scrub. It’s fine for the face where you need to be gentle, but considering it is a body polish and one would be using it all over, I felt the crushed seeds should have been more coarse and bigger. You don’t get the feeling that you have used a scrub. People with sensitive skin might like it as it’s very mild, but I prefer my scrubs and body polishes to be strong enough to do their job. I prefer plain old ‘besan’ to this one :), you can tell that by the amount that has been used up in the tube. I brought this 5 months back and I am still to reach the halfway mark.
2.5 out of 5. I feel for a body polish, it should have been coarser. I am not happy and will not be buying it again.
