Brand Discovery: [M]Botanicals Uplifting Sugar Body Polish Review


Introducing a new brand on my blog today which I have discovered recently through the brand PR people. I consider myself extremely fortunate to work with some amazing people and find hidden beauty gems. And if those gems are skincare, then it is like early birthday present to me. I personally enjoy “not so generic” brands. They feel exclusive and provide thoughtful services because they compete with mainstream brands to leave their mark.

[M]Botanicals is a UK based natural organic skincare brand. Most of their ingredients are plant-based. Few ingredients such as niacinamide and peptides are developed in lab. [M]Botanicals has comparatively small but decent range of face and body products. One can find all the basic face and body products like moisturisers, bar soaps, face and body washes. [M]Botanical products smell like fancy spa products, very fresh and delicately herbal at the same time.


I was sent two products - daily rejuvenator cream and uplifting sugar body polish. I love their packaging - minimalist and corresponding to the brand philosophy. I received both products a few days ago and started using them right away. I can’t give my full verdict for daily rejuvenator yet, as skincare products show results after a little while. However, the initial impression is quite pleasant. I will give my full insight in couple of weeks’ times.

[M]Botanical uplifting sugar body polish is an instant hit with me. It is not a complicated product to dig down all the nitty gritty. It is a sugar based body scrub, loaded with natural oils and mango butter. Sugar buffs away dead skin while mango butter and sunflower oil moisturise skin. It smells delicious and I was smelling incredible all day long. I wish you could smell it through your screens though J. It has an uplifting and refreshing scent. It has bergamot, frankincense and geranium oils. It comes in a big plastic tub with screw top lid, making it quite easy to scoop out the product without any fuss.


It costs £20 for a 250g tub. Now some of you may find it ridiculously expensive and a waste of money for just sugar in a tub. And I totally understand that. I also feel the same for many things. But how many of us make our own scrubs with so many oils and butters and use it every day, right? It is a spa kind of product and if you compare it with one time spa treatment and experience, then the price is not that steep for in-home pampering session. However, if they consider lowering the price a bit, it can easily become a staple in everyones' bath. The moisturising properties of this body polish give it an edge. I literally don’t need to use any moisturiser afterwards.


It is also very gentle on skin as sugar is the main ingredient and on wet skin it melts before it irritates skin. My body skin is sensitive to harsh scrubs just like my face and can develop rash easily from any abrasive product. But this leaves skin feeling very smooth, soft and nourishes at the same time. It is gentle enough for daily use. All the ingredients are 100% natural and plant-based. It is suitable for vegan. [M]Botanicals uplifting body polish is a scrub, moisturiser and body fragrance, all combined in one product. Make sure that you store the product in cool and dry place to protect ingredients from melting. If you want to treat yourself, then I will highly recommend it.

[M]Botanical uplifting sugar body polish is available here.

  3. Sugar scrubs are my favourite! They seem to be the only thing that will get the dead skin off my t-zone. I find them harder to get hold of these days, I can never seem to pick them up on the high street. This scrub looks absolutely divine though x
