I'm sorry if a review of this has been posted elsewhere but I can't find a thread on this using search, but at the same time I was so sure it would have been reviewed by now?

I just finished a bottle of this lovely moisturising light exfoliator today, so I thought I'd pop in a quick review. I bought it a few months back but then had to nick off to the US and so it stood lonely and un-used for a few months. I started using it in January and just finished. I don't remember anymore what scent I asked for but it has a lovely sweet smell that reminds me of candy (no pun intended).

This is a very gentle exfoliator - it does have exfoliating beads but they seem quite rounded so I see this as more of a daily exfoliating scrub/gel rather than a weekly treatment. The gel itself leaves the skin super moisturised - to the extent that water beads off your skin. This may not be your thing but if you like the Lush bars then this is going to leave you with a similar feeling. You then just hop out of the shower and pat yourself dry and can simply skip the body moirturiser step. My main problem with this is that I need to use a lot of it to cover my body, hence it gets used up quickly. This of course means that I like it and wish it would last longer Smile

The packaging is a plastic see-through container that sits on its flip-top lid and can also be hung in the shower by a handy hook at the top. The exfoliating beads do separate (thank you gravity Rolling Eyes) so you need to shake well before using.

Bottom line is that I will be getting this again at some stage, after I finish off some of the other shower products I have (some of which are also Candessence goodies).

I love this product, too! A lot of times I'm in a hurry (or just lazy... Laughing ) and end up skipping the after-shower moisturizer. So, this stuff is great for me because - like you said - you just pat yourself dry and you're good to go! Very convenient, and leaves your skin SO soft...
