Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish by Ren is my all-time favorite skincare product. And calling it a "product" doesn't do it justice, because it's really a nirvana playground for your skin.
Not only does it do what it's supposed to do really well -- polish your body -- but even the very experience of slathering it on transports you out of your shower into a decadent festival of rose petals and dessert and lusciously soft skin seemingly on loan from some mythical super-baby.
"Where did this baby skin come from and how did it get on my body?" you'll ask. And the answer will always be the same: Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish. It's a disarmingly simple paste of cane sugar, rose oil, olive and almond oils, plus kola nut and tea extracts to give your skin a buzz. It sits there in its tub like no big whoop.
But oh my giddy aunt -- once you scoop out a pawful and commence to scrub-a-dub-dubbing, your world turns into a symphony of sensuality. There are two irresistible sensations competing for your attention. First, there's the smell: the rhapsody of a rose garden in full bloom: honeyed and green and rich and fresh. And then there's the savage, playing-with-your-food-feeling of schmearing this glorious goo all over yourself. It's a little naughty, like you're a cupcake and you don't know when to stop frosting yourself.
Immediately, you're propelled into this sensory hallucination: "Am I a cupcake? Am I a rose garden? Am I going to get in trouble for playing with my food? I don't care, because I'm a rosy cupcake with the skin of a super-baby and there are no rules for my kind."

And while you're tripping out in ecstasies of pleasure, Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish is quietly going about its business. The grit of the sugar exfoliates your body into heretofore unexperienced smoothness, allowing the dense oil to permeate your skin, leaving it plumped and gently fragrant. That's a lot of results coming out of one chunky tub.
Added bonuses: sugar scrubs are less abrasive than salt scrubs, and won't sting on freshly-shaved legs or stealth paper cuts. This body polish can be massaged on dry skin before the bath or shower for a more vivid rubdown, or you can take a gentler route by using on wet skin in bath/shower before rinsing off. And like all Ren products, it's free from petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens and synthetic fragrance and colors.
