Product Review: Lavanila The Healthy Body Wash

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lavanila
Name: : The Healthy Body Wash
Size: 231 ml / 8 fl oz
Price: $14 USD

Scent Tried: Vanilla Grapefruit

I recently went away with my hubby (GuineaHubby) on a long weekend and grabbed this product since it was both a handy shower wash and shave gel (I love products that are 2-in-1's), plus I LOVE the scent of grapefruit!

What it says on the package:
This All-Natural Shower & Shave Wash delivers gentle cleansing and soft, silky shaving in one step. Hydrating Coconut & Rosehip Oils blend with Soothing Aloe & Calendula for a luxuriously lathering wash that deeply nourishes while you cleanse and prevents irritation as you shave. No Harsh Chemicals.

To Purr About:
- amazing grapefruit scent
- moisturizing body wash that doesn't leave skin dry
- allow very smooth shave with very little irritation

Claws Out:
- doesn't lather up a lot

Final Comments:
First of all - I wasn't disappointed with the grapefruit scent - it smells heavenly!

As a body wash: it doesn't lather up as much as I was hoping, and definitely not a "luxuriously lathering wash", but it isn't bad. It does have that lovely grapefruit scent and does give a nice, clean wash. Afterwards, my skin felt clean and soft, and definitely not dried out. I didn't even feel the need for a moisturizer after my shower, which I often find with a lot of body washes. It also rinses off easily and doesn't leave any residue except for a very light fragrance.

As a shave gel: it's more of a wash gel and doesn't work up into a cream or thick lather like other shave gels, so that's something that I had to get used to, but it does let the razor glide easily over the skin without any tugging. Afterwards I found that the shaved area was very smooth and not dry and my skin didn't hurt, which sometimes happens when my shaving gel/cream dries my skin out too much for shaving.

Overall, I'm really happy with this product. It's a really good body wash and a great shave gel, with a wonderful scent. I also love that it's a 2-in-1 product which is handy for travelling and for lightening the shower clutter.

I just tried this too. It does smell SOOOOOO good and is great for travel. Didn't lather a whole lot, though.
