Though Summer is in its full swing right now, Monsoon is almost about to check in. In fact, the region I live in is already prepping up big time for a rainy season.
Seasons play a prime role in taking care of skin and hair. People are going conscious every single day about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They are not far behind the fact that along with internal health, external care is also mandatory. And that differs a lot with age and season.
Skincare varies a lot in Summer, in the same way, Winter skincare also steps in in a different mode. But Monsoon is a season when Skin and Hair care get incredibly tricky.
Both Skin and Hair become confused about how to act in the Monsoon. Sometimes, it gets sweaty and greasy, and other times, they are parched. So, it is essential to take a good look at your skin and hair, and act accordingly.
I have been an admirer of The Body Shop Skin Care Products for a long time. They are Cruelty-free, Vegan, use Handpicked Ingredients in their products, and also use a lesser amount of Artificial Chemicals in their products.
Today, I am gonna talk about The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish and why it works like a charm during the Monsoon.

As The Body Shop claims about the product,

Pick up our satsuma body polish to slough away dead skin cells, leaving your skin supremely softer and refined. The exfoliating foaming gel and energising scent add a touch of luxury to your shower routine.

  •         Body exfoliator
  •         Gentle exfoliation
  •         Satsuma oil from Argentina
  •         Zesty satsuma scent
  •         Light, particle gel texture
  •         Use 2-3 times per week

My experience:
The skin on my body is equally sensitive like my face. It is not combination type though, rather it can be pretty dry from time to time. To give you a sensitivity radar test, I can say that I can't even wear artificial jewelry that often because they give me allergic reactions.
Anyway, during the Summers and Monsoons, my skin becomes extra sensitive. I develop rashes sometimes. And that's the reason I prefer not to use any hard-core, grainy body scrub.
This Satsuma Body Polish is just perfect to use on sensitive skin. It does the job wonderfully, of taking the dead cells out without ripping off the skin. I use it twice every week, and it gives me a healthy, moisturized, soft, and supple skin. I love to use this body polish throughout the year, especially during the Monsoon. It balances the moisture barrier of the skin so well.
Apart this, I prefer to use it before I shave my body hair. It makes the job more comfortable, and I don't even get any razor-bumps as the razor glides into the skin so well after using this body polish.
The smell of Satsuma is just oh-so-awesome. If you are in a hurry to go out somewhere in the morning, but reluctant to take a bath, the scent will help you to get into the shower. Your whole bathroom will smell fresh, with a little hint of flowery and a strong sweet mandarin orange-y scent.
After taking a bath, the smell lingers on the body for quite some time if you don't apply anything else. If you want the scent to stay for the whole day, I would suggest you to use the Satsuma Body Butter, along with the Satsuma body perfume. You'll smell just fantastic for the entire day. When you smell good, you feel good, and the day just gets more beautiful.

P.S: The Body Shop products come on the expensive sides in India. And that sucks big time. I can't do anything about that. But what I can tell you is that their products are undoubtedly one of the best in this price range. And a little goes a long way.

Give it a try. If you are a digger for zesty, citrusy scents, then you’ll fall in love with it. I am pretty sure your skin will thank you a million times for this.

Happy Living…
