Birchbox Series: LaROCCA Champagne and Acai Sugar Polish

Hey All,
                Another Birchbox post to bring to you all, I have really been working hard to get finished with all the little samples taking up space in my drawers (which I really need space for other things). I’m bringing a body product to you all, the LaROCCA Champagne and Shimmer Acai Sugar Polish from a November box.  

LaROCCA Champagne and Shimmer Acai Sugar Polish (November 2011) Full Size: $35.00

According to Birchbox:
“This revitalizing sweet-smelling body polish buffs away dull skin with raw sugar, acai, and 24-karat colloidal gold. But that’s not all, coconut oil and shea butter work to moisturize and combat dryness so that you’re left with nothing but softness.”

My Take:
This product smelled soooo good.  The product also did have this awesome shimmer to it, but the sample was not enough to use on my entire body.  When I use a scrub, I want it to be a bit abrasive, and filled with more scrubbie particles. It’s a cool product, and left a shimmer on my skin, but I could feel the oil, and I was not a fan of it. I get that it makes your skin feel soft, but for me, it was uncomfortable. The scrubbie particles were not packed enough, and very easily melted away in my shower, which was a slight disappointment. It just was not a “WOW, I need this product” feeling.  Also the 24-karat gold was just not a selling point for me. 

How Much Is In A Full Sized:
$35 for 6.76 oz (where do they get these random oz?)

Did Birchbox Make Me Want To Buy It:
For me, this product was just “meh”. It wasn’t special, and I rarely use body scrubs.  I just don’t feel a pull to purchase this product.
