i'm not a big fan of any strawberry's theme products mainly because of it's strong smell,but this one is an exception. it doesn't do much 'polish' but still the seeds feel nice on my skin and it leaves some lingering sweet strawberry smell that i like. it's tad bit expensive for such small amount,but i still think it's worth it and gonna do the repurchase soon

Nice smell, but not very scrubby at all. I need more hardcore exfoliation. wouldnt repurchase.

One of my favourite body shop products!
I love it as an everyday body exfoliater because it gets rid of that dead skin and doesn't leave my skin feeling raw. I find it most effective when used with exfoliating gloves (also makes the wash last longer when used with gloves or a sponge)
My favourite thing about this product is that the exfoliating agent is crushed walnut shells and kewi seeds, and offcourse the amazing smell that's left on your skin! :D

A nice daily body wash with gentle exfoliating beads to give a scrubbed clean feel, it's wonderful when I feel itchy and sweaty. It has a rich lather and it's not drying, although I like to use a body lotion afterwards anyway. The only problem I have with this body polish is that I'm not really a fan of the scent. In fact, I find the scent of the whole strawberry line from the Body Shop to be too artificial. I love strawberries but this to me is not a true strawberry scent. I know a lot of people like the scent here but to me it just smells artificially sweet.

The sweet smell of strawberrys in this product is nice, other than that this is your typical shower gel, I dont understand why they call these soaps body polishes when they do not make the skin glow or even exfoliate. If there was a really great sale on these I might buy them again other than that I will pass.

I love love love the smell. Ill normally just sit there and sniff it!
The packaging is really good. the price is pretty crazy.
This is def not a true expholiator! Its really just for the smell.
I would re buy it if it came on sale.But other then that, prob not

I love this. It really helps the small bumps I have on my legs that are like tiny ingrown hairs, but just a little red bump. It also really helps the similar small red bumps just above my elbows. The scent isn't overpowering and I don't notice it through my other body wash. I definitely use this as some extra exfoliating and it doesn't bother my sensitive skin at all. There's more than enough little exfoliating beads besides the big kiwi ones. If there were any more beads, I'd feel like my skin was being peeled off.
I'm assuming this isn't equal to a sugar scrub or something like that, but as I mentioned before, perfect for sensitive skin.

i was a bit disappointed. its great 2 in 1 product: a shower gel and a scrub. the smell is good, smells like strawberries as you could expect. its pretty watery gel with kiwi seeds and walnut shell thingys. it foams up nicely, but it doesnt give that glow and moisture what the body scrubs gives. defenetly a big difference between them. im gonna try the satsuma one after this, it seems to have more exfoliating beads or whatever in it. dont recommend, unless you want a shower gel with a bit of exfoliating power
NEW THOUGHTS: i didnt end up trying even the satsuma one, these have just too big beads to do anything! i bought the mango body scrub and my skin is gloooooooooooowing! im gonna keep going just with the scrubs.

I really enjoy using this product, it doesn't exfoliate *sighs*, but it does smell like strawberry-scented gummi bears. I didn't think I'd like this before sniffing it as I feared it would smell like the body butter (the body butter has a boozy scent), thankfully it does not. The scent is definitely more candy-like than fresh berries, but if you enjoy that (as I do) then you must try this.
For a cheaper alternative I'd ignore this and just head straight for the shower gel which smells the same, cleanses better, and lasts longer.

PROS: Smelled great. Very strong strawberry scent (could be a con to some, I guess.)
CONS: Not efficient/consistent for exfoliating because the "beads" are huge and aslo few and far between. So you either get one very scratchy, pointy bead every once in a while rubbing on your skin, or you get nothing in between.

The smell is nice and refreshing but it doesn't linger. I also have to use a lot to make it feel like I am really exfoliating my skin, so on me it doesn't last that long. I find it enjoyable to use though.

-nice gentle exfoliator- good for daily use
-nice fresh strawberry smell
-left skin very soft
-mine had a kind of funny lingering smell I didn't like
-little seeds made it so you have to rinse shower after using

This smells delicious! If you have the strawberry lip balm from the same line, this smells close to that. Exfoliation-wise, this is great for daily use. It exfoliates well, but not too much like those once or twice a week only type of scrubs (which I like as well). The container is a travel-friendly squeeze tube that I like a lot. Overall, a very good product.

This product lasts for ages - which is a good thing considering how often I use !
I probably use it more than I should because it smells so amazing, but it's the type of product that gets the job done without being too harsh, and so even on my eczema-prone skin, it's gentle enough to use everyday without sacrificing performance.
At £12 a tube, it may seem a bit pricey in comparison to other daily body exfoliators out there, but the smells coupled with how long it lasts makes it a real bargain. Definitely recommend for everyone, of all skin types - and in case you're wondering if the scent means it's perfumed - it won't irritate the skin at all. The only things added to this product are entirely natural, and the scent occurs naturally too - worth a punt for sure.

I really love this product. I think its such a nice everyday wash, it has the little fruit seeds which offer a gentle exfoliation and it smells lovely.
The only draw back for me is that I do feel that is quite expensive, which nearly put me off, its £9 for a 200ml bottle which I did think was quite a lot for a shower gel, but I got a bottle as a 200ml bottle as a gift and it lasted me 4-5 months so the bottle does last a while. I try and buy it in bulk in the sales, like most body shop products, but I would be willing to pay full price because I do think that is a great body wash.

Very gentle, the kiwi-seeds are gentle enough to use everyday for sure.
The scent is nice and sweet, and doesn't linger on like the TBS tub scrubs.
It's nice, sweet, and easy to use. Nothing too special in my opinion, but it's a good buy.

This product is a body polish-not scrub-and says that it is gentle enough to use for daily exfoliation. I think the exfoliation TBS had in mind was the mild exfoliation you can get from a bath lily or loofah. That being said, this works great for the days I want a little extra exfoliation between my weekly scrubs. It's also moisturizing and after I use it I just use some strawberry butter on my hands, elbows, and knees and I'm good to go. If you want a heavy duty exfoliator this is probably not for you. I'm giving this five lippies beause it does what it says it will do-daily gentle exfoliation. Plus, unlike the strawberry butter, the smell is great and not at all overwhelming.

It has no differences from normal shower gel. No exfoliation effect. Yes smells good. But only smells good, has no special thing.
Fortunately I have bought it from cheap/outlet store, less than it's normal price.

this was rather disappointing. i bought this with the strawberry body butter (i love the body butter) but i didnt like this as much. it is OKAY...but nothing special. i could get any other cheap body scrub with the same strawberry scent and works just the same or better. not worth it.

this whole 'body polish' thing is garbage, it's just not grainy enough to be used for exfoliation purposes, i did not intend to buy this, but it was on major sale so my mom bought me a tube. it does smell yummy and it looks like strawberry preserves like a reviewer said below...apart from that, it's just a scented shower gel trying to pass itself off as a body scrub. if this wasn't on sale i wouldn't have purchased it, i'd much rather stick to the shower gel version which is cheaper and use my shower brush with it to exfoliate my skin.
i hate that TBS discontinues their good products (like their ultra smooth under eye concealer and most of the stuff in their vanilla line), but then they come out with crap like this when they have their better body scrubs (the ones in tubs that complement the body butters). i say skip the body polish and go for the scrubs in tubs instead. or just invest in a good shower brush (or a good pair of exfoliating bath gloves which they also sell at TBS) and a good body wash and exfoliate away.
