Texture & Fragrance

It has a refreshing zesty citrus scent which leaves me energized after bath. The product also comes in clear orange color and has tiny, gentle beads in it.

Application

Apply to damp skin in a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly. You can use two to three times a week. 

My Impression

Okay, if you are looking for a great exfoliator, this is not the product that you want to try. However, if you have a sensitive skin and need mild exfoliation for daily usage, this product would be a fantastic option as it is very gentle on skin.  This product is pretty expensive for a body wash, but its zesty citrus smells amazing and leaves it my skin soft and clean. This product is also long lasting as I don’t have to use much. Overall, it’s a great luxurious body wash.
