My Thoughts: This is a fantastic product to have in your beauty arsenal. Unlike a lot of other scrubs that are oil based, Nourish's Body Polish is a scrub housed in a castile soap base. This means that while it exfoliates, it also lathers up and serves as a body wash too. Also, while a lot of other scrubs are made from sugar or salt, the grittiness here is from two kinds of rice, corn grits, and murumuru and cupuacu seeds. It's all finely milled and it really is gentle enough to use every day, just like Nourish claims. It's also not scented, though the ingredients do give it a light, fresh, slightly starchy smell, kind of like cornmeal.
The combination of being unscented and the gentleness of the exfoliants convinced me to try it as a face scrub and I've been loving using it on my face also. Sometimes I do wish it was a little rougher for my body, but that same gentleness makes it perfect for the face, where it leaves my skin cleansed, exfoliated, and super soft. For that reason, I wouldn't change a thing about this product! It's become my new favorite face scrub and I've also been enjoying it as a body polish in rotation with other coarser scrubs.
The Bottom Line: Nourish's products have awesome ingredients, are super affordable, and if the body polish is anything to go on, are fantastic quality too. I'll definitely be checking out more of their line in the future!
