Very gentle and refreshing.
Let me first make an admission - I hate scrubs. Both body and facial scrubs. I usually find them too harsh for my dry skin. But I was very pleasantly surprised by the Puretopia body polish. I knew the company used natural ingredients, that it avoided animal testing and that it was Australian owned. All of these were attractive to me, but I would not have been tempted to purchase this product regardless. However it was included as a freebie in a Priceline deal, so I decided to try it out. The scent is amazing ... like ginger beer. Very refreshing. The dark gel contains walnut shell granules which slide off the skin and wash away easily. The granules feel rounded rather than harsh, so my skin felt massaged rather than scratched. And best of all, the product is not drying. In fact, a moisturising film remains after washing off the scrub. The generous 200 ml tube lasts for a long time. The flat top means it can be stored upside down so that you don't have to struggle with squeezing out the body polish each time you use it. I absolutely love this product and am seriously tempted to purchase it regularly.

When I first used this I didn't expect big things, boy-oh-boy, was I in for a surprise!
The formula is a dark gel like consistency with a really generous amount of sand like granules, it doesn't foam up a large amount which means it won't excessively dry out your skin which means I can get away with not using a body lotion if I'm in a rush. The exfoliating beads aren't scratchy or harsh, they literally do polish your skin, leaving it silky smooth. This product is best used in the shower and on wet skin, the foam assists with the movement of the exfoliating beads and cleans dirt, makeup, oil and sweat off your skin at the same time.
The scent, to me, is slightly similar to an organic cola that I'm familiar with, it's not a typical body product scent which I love and I find it really pleasant, I doesn't linger around and isn't so strong that it's offensive.
The tube makes for great packaging, since it sits on it's cap you are always able to get the very last drop out of the tube, for those that don't like to waste product this packaging is great, also the flip top lid isn't difficult to open when you're in the shower, you aren't likely to accidentally cut your finger open while struggling to open this.
This is by far my favourite body wash, I have repurchased it several times and it's always the first product that comes to mind when I'm considering a body scrub or recommending one.

Best In Beauty 2013
After reading about Puretopia on Beauty Heaven I was drawn to the company’s guarantee of no animal testing, synthetic fragrances, parabens, sulfate cleansers, artificial colours, DEA, TEA or silicones as well as being an Australian made and owned company. All big pluses for me!
Immediately upon squirting the product onto my hands I noticed the intoxicating scent of Lime, Lemongrass and ginger – some of my favourite scents! The gentle walnut based scrub (which includes Amazonian acai berries and guarana) immediately left my skin feeling soft and invigorated with a subtle citrus lingering scent. Within just 2 days off use my dry elbows were once again soft and there was a noticeable difference in my skins texture.
Puretopia products are very reasonably priced and I was able to purchase this scrub at 20% off at Priceline so it was around $11 for the 200ml tube. I am so impressed with this product that I will definitely repurchase and am looking forward to trying other products in the line as they are all very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

Invigorating and rejuvenating
Puretopia Glowingly Smooth Exfoliating & Renewing Body Polish is my current favourite. Phew. What a mouthful of a name. Touted as being 100 per cent sulphate, paraben and soap-free, it is suitable for all skin types. The body polish contains Amazonian acai berry and guarana for skin stimulation and detoxification while walnut shell gently polishes, and aloe vera soothes, clams and moisturises. It says that the body polish has a lime, lemongrass and ginger fragrance. The body polish is used to exfoliate dead skin cells, excess oils, traces of daily pollution, grime and makeup.
I use it "neat" all over my body and mix a little with my facial cleanser when I use it on my face. The exfoliating bits of walnut shell do a good job of exfoliating my skin as I feel that my skin is reborn to become smoother and more vibrant. However, it stops short of being too harsh and abrasive. I have sensitive skin so it is a major concern for me if the body scrub is too harsh and abrasive but I also dislike those that are too gentle as you do not feel like you have exfoliated anything at all. I give Puretopia's body polish a thumbs up as it does not have any negative effects on me.
While there are many good body scrubs/polishes in the market, what stands out in this product is its smell. I disliked the smell when I first used it as I likened it to be "herby". However, the smell grew on me and I grew to like the smell. Also, there is something about the smell that seems to invigorate and rejuvenate my soul as I use it.

I purchased this after I heard such GREAT reviews on beautyheaven, and can I say I am so glad that I did. This is such a great body scrub and I swear it smells exactly like cola, it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and invigorated and really refreshens the skin. Plus It makes me smell really good afterwards too!

this product is great i love it... this product has so many benefits firstly i love using this product just because the smell plus the massage is so relaxing it takes me away to dreams of tropical island holidays... it makes my skin feel incredible and boosted the blood flow... i have also noticed a reduction in cellulite which is always a good thing especially after having a baby... i like the granules because they aren't fake, to rough or to soft... i love that its australian and that it is paraben and sulfate free too... natural ingredients are also a plus... it has made me want to try other products made by this brand i just think that it is just that little bit out of my price range...

Feels nice and exfoliating. It had a bit of a cola smell, which really does sound a bit strange but it wasn't overpowering and strong. The packaging is perfect to use in the shower and the beads were really moisturising and didn't break down. My skin felt soft soft and clean afterwards and it a great buy, something I would definitely buy again!

Feels Great, Smells Great
This has quite a strong scent to it - I like strong scents in shower products because I can really smell them while using them! It's like a strong minty, menthol cross something lemony. The menthol type of smell is due to the clary sage I expect and the lemony scent I can smell must be from the lemongrass extracts. It also has Lime Oil and Ginger Root in it so you can see how why it has a nice strong scent! Love it!
Packed full of natural ingredients including aloe, this scrub has gorgeous scratchy beads that really do give the skin a good exfoliation. I like scrubs that don't beat around the bush and this is one of them!
After I use this and rinse it off, besides my skin being super smooth and feeling freshened up, I see lots of sand-sized grains on the shower recess floor. But it's not sand - it must be the walnut shell 'powder' that is included in this formula.
If you love a great scrub that really does the job well then I think you'll love this. It's great to lift away the fifth day residue of a fake tan too! Fresh new skin awaits!

I picked this up recently on sale. I hadn't used the brand before but had heard good things. This is a fairly gritty gel that smells like limes to me - a beautiful fresh and slightly herbal scent. It is a brown formula that is easy to use. The grains do not dissolve so you can really get a good scrub. It has moisturisers that leave skin soft and fresh. I think this is a really effective product and I love that it's natural.

Super Smooth Skin - Feels Totally Invigorating
Puretopia Glowingly Smooth Exfoliating & Renewing Body Polish 200ml comes in an up-down (lid base) squeeze tube with a click open swing lid. The tube is foil sealed for health and safety.
The body polish formula has amazonian acai berry and guarana to stimulate and detoxify skin.
The polish removes dead skin cells, excess oil, grime and make up.
Best to use the body polish around shower time as it is applied to wet skin.
After massaging body thoroughly, it needs to be rinsed off.
The polish is a brown tinted gel with small brown tone granules throughout.
It has a rich natural aroma, which is quite pleasant.
The texture of the gel itself is smooth, the granules feel like grains of sand, only a little softer (if that makes sense), when massaging skin.
This is what makes it an exceptionally successful exfoliating product.
The gel produces a minimal cream lather which cleanses skin well, removing impurities.
Once I have thoroughly massaged my body and legs I rinse off the body polish with warm water.
I am left with super smooth skin that does feel soft, and totally invigorated.
It's a great preparation for skin when I am going to use fake tan.
This is an excellent exfoliating polish for skin, renewing and invigorating, very beneficial.
I received Puretopia Glowingly Smooth Exfoliating & Renewing Body Polish in a bonus skincare beauty bag from Priceline.
