Nude Skincare Moisturizing Body Polish

Nude is a natural skin and body care line thats gotten a lot of press lately. It began in the UK, and was only available at Barneys in NY until a few months ago when Sephora began carrying it. Last winter I tried to get the raved about lip balm, but they were sold out. I did at least test it, and it was super creamy and full of shea butter.

So, I finally have an actual item and what a good one. As soon as I smelled this body polish , I was sold. It has major monoi oil in it and smells divinely tropical. No fruit, just that creamy monoi that transports you.

The polish itself is a bit different than most I've used and I like the change. This one is a bit more solidified. No tons of oil or other liquids floating around. No mixing to get a good scrub portion. Now that said, it does mean you need to scrape some out and use some water to get it softened on your skin. Straight out of the jar is too stiff. Once you work it, it scrubs nicely and leaves behind a nice monoi scent and some moisture. The scrub used is organic sugar.

I felt I still needed a little lotion after using this, but some might be able to use this and no lotion and be fine. It's all preference or dryness of skin I suppose.

The tub is very large , 6.8 oz. and I am smelling it's goodness as I type.

Nude is free of parabens and all things you don't want in your skin as it's website says, which is rather nice , too.

Nude Moisturizing Body Polish is $ 52.00 at sephora . prices and info here for all countries in local currency)

The whole Nude line looks great, so I look forward to trying more.
