Exfoliating the body is probably one of the most satisfying things to do in the shower, obviously don’t do it everyday because the skin needs its microbiome but once or twice a week is more than enough, I tend to quite careful with the type of body polishes I use because I don’t want to damage my skin by using something too aggressive, this why today I come with a wonderful recommendation that is not only friendly with our bodies but also with the environment.
Previously from Olverum I tried the Pure Radiance Facial Oil, but the vast majority of the products from this brand are bath and body ones and this is the first one I try, I have been using it for my pampering nights on Wednesday and Sundays and I quite liked it.
Far more than a simple exfoliator, Olverum’s double-action Body Polish contains an innovative blend of ingredients that nourish deep into the skin as they buff the surface, leaving it with a cleaned, clarified, and velvet-smooth texture – and toned appearance.
Gliding on easily, the cushioning effects of its unique souffle-feel texture makes light work of an invigorating exfoliating massage. First, Fermented Papaya Enzyme gently breaks down dead skin cells, allowing penetrating, cleansing Hydroclay to lift and eliminate deep-set impurities. Unlike many abrasive body scrubs, the light, aerated texture of this body polish provides a comforting cushioning effect for intensive massage, which maximizes the effects of mechanical exfoliants Bamboo and Pumice to polish the skin to a satin finish.
Simultaneously, a carefully balanced fusion of essential oils work to help purify skin, and aid moisture retention. Firming Bergamot Oil, Lavandin Oil, and Geranium Oil work in harmony to boost elasticity for a rejuvenated look and feel. Contouring botanicals Grapefruit Oil and Fennel Oil brighten skin tone and spirit alike, blending harmoniously with the invigorating scents of Patchouli Oil and Ylang Ylang, leaving skin refined, supple, and glowing with a renewed luster.

Personal experience and opinion
Starting by the texture, is a soft gentle souffle, which is nice as normally body scrubs are quite rough and could end up causing more damage than benefits, also when it comes to exfoliation in our whole body we have to keep in mind the lymph channels, the right way to massage our legs for example is softly, like a gentles caresses in a repetitive way, lymph channels are quite sensitive and we could damage them if we use rough products or techniques, the texture of this body polish is quite gentle, the list of ingredients have a plus as its free from artificial preservatives, fragrance and colorants, Silicone, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Sulphates, Phthalates, Parabens, Triclosan and animal derived ingredients.
Another positive thing for the environment and that many beauty product fail noways, the Olverum Body Polish it doesn’t contain microplastics, exfoliators normally are the worst in this department but Olverum really made a great job. I certainly recommend this product, it’s gentle with our body and friendly with the earth certainly a win-win product.
