Organic Fiji Pineapple Coconut Face and Body Sugar Polish

April 15, 2009

A gentle, tropical scented sugar scrub made from cold pressed, certified organic virgin Fijian coconut oil.

“Organic Fiji Sugar Polish is a gentle exfoliant that doesn’t sting or scratch the skin and is a simple way to transform dull, dry skin into a beautiful glow. Sugar is a natural glycolic acid which helps slough off dead skin cells and promote cell rejuvenation, while the anti-oxidant rich coconut oil penetrates to replenish, moisturise, and nourish the skin with vitamins”.

Most sugar scrubs contain sugar and a liquid oil to make them soft and fluffy. Organic Fiji sugar polish scrub is different because it contains coconut oil which solidifies at temperatures below 76F. When I wanted to use it, all I had to do was put it in the shower with me for a few minutes and it was ready to use in a few minutes. On warmer days, the heat from my hands was enough to make it malleable which I actually preferred to heating it up to a runny oil.

I absolutely loved the smell of this product. It was like rubbing a non alcoholic pina colada onto my skin! If you don’t like the sound of the pineapple coconut scent, it’s also available in Cucumber Melon, Fragrance Free, Lavender and Lemongrass Tangerine.

The texture of the sugar was very fine so there was no scratchiness or redness on my skin after use. I thought it would be a bit too rough for my face, but I was pleasantly surprised because it was very gentle. After I’d washed the scrub off, a small amount of coconut oil remained on my skin. This was just just enough to leave me feeling moisturised rather than greasy with product build up. I didn’t need to use any moisturiser afterwards and my skin still felt beautifully soft.

If you use fake tanning lotion, I think this would be an excellent product to use for pre-tan exfoliation.

Fantastic product – works brilliantly, smells amazing!

    Oh WOW! Even the title got my mouth watering on this one :-)

    I’m struggling to find my Holy Grail of face exfoliants – I think you may have found me one :-D

    It’s lovely. The Neal’s Yard Orange and Honey Scrub was my favorite, but I think this is now. I’m a sucker for anything pineapple coconut, including Pina Colada! :)
