I love a good body lotion, and while I have my perennial favorite which I fall back to when there are issues, I admit that I'm constantly looking for new ones. So, when Body Drench (from the same company as my beloved China Glaze Nail Polish) asked if I'd check out a few of their products, I just jumped at the chance. With a name like Body Drench this was a no brainer! It turns out that this company traditionally makes tanning products, but they are branching out to help pamper the skin of their clients.
I love the plastic tub that this comes in. While it looks like a normal round tub, it turns out that the top flips up! I love this for ease of use in the shower, especially for the body polish. What's inside is really great. This body creme smells absolutely amazing! There are three scents (my favorite is Cherry Pomegranate, there is also Hawaiian Papaya and Yuzu Guava), and they are all absolutely amazing. They really smell like those things, there is no element of "fake" in any of them.
The Body Créme has the consistency of a yogurt, and it feels just as creamy. It is very silky to the touch, and feels amazing as you rub it into your skin. It is very hydrating, leaving behind smooth and soft skin without a greasy residue! Overall, I really loved this créme, and you can be sure that I'll be buying more of it.

The body polish wasn't as good as my usual, but it is nice. It comes in the same flip-top tub as the body créme, which is super convenient for the in the shower. The scrub smells just like the créme, which means that it smells just amazing! Between the color of the Cherry Pomegranate (a bright pink) and it's smell and consistency, I was having a hard time not drinking this down like it's a smoothie!
The main problem that I had with this scrub was it's consistency. It is pretty thin for a scrub, meaning it's like a half melted smoothie. It does have some grit in this thin part, but unfortunately most of the grit sinks to the bottom of the jar. Even after mixing it all up this was just a bit thinner than I would like. I was very tempted to just dump some sugar into it, but I haven't done that yet.
Perhaps most perplexing about this scrub was that while it works fine and is hydrating, is the fact that it does leave just a bit of an oily residue. That makes it unusable for pre-sunless tanning usage.
The body mist has the same great scent as each of the other products, in case you want to add just a little bit more of the scent to your day! It's non-oily and easy to use. It didn't last all day, but did last from early morning until well in to the afternoon!
