rachel's plan bee body polish

In a perfect world, every body scrub would have just the right amount of exfoliating power, ultra-hydrating oils and tantalizing scents to keep me digging to the bottom of the tub day in and day out.

Rachel’s Plan Bee Body Polish must have come from this perfect world, because of the nine (!!!) body scrubs in my shower right now, these are the two that I keep scooping my hands into and applying from head to toe every week.

{Rachel’s Plan Bee sent me samples of its Coconut Beach Body Polish and Vanilla Spice Body Polish. Each body polish costs $16 for a 7-ounce plastic tub.}

Rachel’s Plan Bee Body Polishes boast a whipped consistency yet feel substantial in your hands thanks to the uber-moisturizing base of shea butter, sugar and clay.

It’s one of those rare body scrubs that isn’t totally drenched in oils (you know, the ones that coat your skin with a thick layer of oil that gets stuck under your nails if you scratch yourself).

Instead, it imparts just the right amount of long-lasting oil on your skin after you’ve rinsed off the scrub, and while your tub will be a bit slippery, it’s still not as slippery as some scrubs can leave your tub. This is likely thanks to the addition of clays such as kaolin and Moroccan lava which absorb excess oil.

Some body scrubs can also feel super-chunky because of the size of the sugar crystals used; Rachel’s Plan Bee Body Polish uses very fine sugar to give your body an even, sandy exfoliating experience.

I typically exfoliate my body once or twice a week, usually on days when I shave my legs (TMI?) to really help open up my pores and prevent in-grown hairs and bumps.

Plus, I just love how extra soft and luxe my skin feels post-shave and post-exfoliation.

While I always apply body oil while my skin is still damp post-shower, I find that I really don’t need to after I’ve exfoliated with Rachel’s Plan Bee Body Polish. It’s just a nice extra if I want some additional moisture, but for the most part, this takes care of my hydration needs.

Now that’s what I call a perfect flippin’ body scrub.

Rachel’s Plan Bee sent me two different scrubs to try. Both scents — Coconut Beach and Vanilla & Spice — were absolutely lovely, but according to which one is closer to being empty, I liked the Vanilla & Spice Body Polish better!

If my memory serves me correctly, the Vanilla & Spice was a limited release, made with the most intoxicating vanilla aroma. Here’s to hoping Rachel makes it again soon — or even adds it to her permanent collection of body polishes.

Currently, Rachel’s Plan Bee offers body polishes in the following scents:

  • Original (Citrus and vanilla)
  • Lavender Spirit (Lavender, vanilla and chamomile)
  • LIMITED EDITION: Lavender Mojito (Lime, mint, sugar and lavender)
  • Mint For You (Peppermint, spearmint and eucalyptus)
  • Coconut Beach (Orange, vanilla and chamomile)
  • Citrus Breeze (Lemon, vanilla and chamomile)

Here’s what’s inside Rachel’s Plan Bee Coconut Beach Body Polish:

Sucrose, Grapeseed Oil, Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil, White Kaolin, Moroccan Lava Clay, Beeswax, Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus sinensis (Orange) Peel Oil, Vanilla planifolia, Anthemis nobilis (Chamomile Roman) Flower Oil, Sunflower seed oil with natural and organic flavorings, Glyceryl Monocaprylate (and) Glyceryl Monoundecylenate*    *100% Vegetable derived natural preservative

I’m looking forward to restocking Rachel’s Plan Bee Body Polishes (even though I have several others in my shower, I know). Citrus Breeze and Lavender Mojito look like they could be winning scents!

Why must I always be attracted to the limited edition runs of everything?!

At $16 a pop, I can easily try all the different scents Rachel makes without blowing my skincare budget. This is one of the most fairly priced, fun lines around. On the repurchase and recommend list for sure!

  • Haven’t heard of this brand yet! So awesome… love the pics, and this sounds so special— truly, you can get lost in a scrub- Splurge is pretty awesome too, and I was so sad when it was gone! Great post, Kim! :0) – Kathryne :0)

    • I hope you get a chance to try! Splurge is a nice little company. Their lippies are great! Love having so many affordable options. xoxo

  • These sound really nice! I’m pretty lazy when it comes to exfoliating my body but I want to start doing it regularly now. I usually steer clear of body scrubs because I’ve had experiences with them being too messy or too oily but this brand of scrubs sound like they have a wonderful consistency. Love the label too, so cute! :) Plus, Lavender Mojito? Yes please!

    • I feel ya on the messy / oily factor. It’s an indulgence for me! I like Rachel’s Plan Bee because though it does have oil in it (because you want that!) it’s not overly oily. Yes, the tub can still get slick but it doesn’t feel coated. Plus, yes, those scents! And the price. Thanks for not breaking the bank! Definite staple.

  • These sound great, Kim! I have to admit, I’ve been really remiss in keeping up with exfoliating this summer — lots of bumps and nicks over here :( But these two sound like they would make it enjoyable, or at the very least, less boring! (Vanilla & Spice, mmmm.)

    • This is a total #beautygirlproblem, but sometimes, exfoliating can just be…hard.

      Did I really just type that?

      It’s an extra step and it’s not something you want/need to do every day, so sometimes, you just kind of get out of habit. But a good scrub will entice you! Hope you get a chance to try these. xoxo

  • They sound sooo good! I love how it looks whipped up and the Lavender Mojito one sounds especially nice mmmmm!

    • Yes, Lavender Mojito is coming my way soon!!!
