I might be too late to finally get an S&G product, but as the saying goes "Better late than never", I am happy to have finally joined the bandwagon. I actually ran out of my usual body polish and needed a replacement so while out in Boots, I decided to get Flake Away and see what the hype is all about.
Flake Away Body Polish looks and feels amazing to the touch. It is enriched with Shea Butter & Almond oil which nourish the skin and don't make it feel stretched or dry. I love how uniform the grains are (Peach Seed Powder, Sugar & Sea Salts), they are not too harsh on skin but not too mild either. In one short line: it gets the job done! Skin is left feeling much, much smoother and softer (yay for Almond oil!).There isn't any need for moisturizer/lotion unless you suffer from extremely dry skin or its winters.
The scent (Original Pink), although a beautiful floral fragrance, is a bit overpowering. At first I was happy that the entire bathroom (including myself) smelled great, but around 10 minutes of all-over scrubbing, my nose started to sting due to the fragrance being so strong. Also, it is also a bit of a task to get all the grains off of your body as they do not wash off that easily.

The fragrance lasts around a full day (tested!). Using this twice a week is all you need for smoother skin within a couple of months. I suffered a bit from cellulite around my hips and it smoothed my skin within two uses. The price (locally) is a bit too much but for the quantity and efficiency, I am convinced to overlook it. Flake Away is my go-to spa treatment for instantly soft skin (yes, it does require hard work but it's worth it!).

Price: KWD 5.250 (300ml) - Boots Stores
Recommendation: This works fantastic for the entire body and is great value for money as it lasts a good while. Unless you are very conscious of strong scents, this is a hit!
