I’m a total bath junkie, always on the lookout for new products I might enjoy. This could seem frivolous. What you use to bathe can’t really matter, right? It’s the bathing itself that’s important.
Well, no. Here’s why I disagree:
- The shower and bath are sanctuaries. No matter what else is going on in your life, it’s a totally separate, necessary, and restorative break from the rest of the day. Using bath products that truly please you is a simple indulgence– and one that we all deserve!
- A good soap makes a tangible difference in your appearance. When your skin has that clean, nourished feeling, you feel better. And we all know that feeling great is the most basic beauty product around.
So I was thrilled to receive the three newest body washes from Softsoap for review. For the past week, I’ve been showering with Nutri Serums Mineral Extracts body wash. Here’s how Softsoap describes it:
This luxurious formula is infused with mineral extracts to enhance skin’s radiance, while providing a concentrated dose of nutrients for soft, healthy-looking skin.
And what was my experience?
SUDS: Alledgedly, this aspect has nothing to do with the effectiveness of a product. For me, though, good sudsing is a must. I just don’t feel squeaky clean without it. I use a quarter-sized dollop of Nutri Serums on a loofah, and it creates enough suds to scrub me from my ears to the soles of my feet. It’s not overwhelmingly bubbly (aka bubble bath) but it’s the right amount of sudsing for a body wash.
SCENT: LOVE it. It’s a soft blend of vanilla and citrus that doesn’t aggressively hit either note. In fact, the delicacy of the fragrance gives it the feel of a more luxuriously-priced product.
RINSE: It rinses totally clean, without residue or stickiness, and leaves my skin feeling soft. I always moisturize after the shower, but I don’t feel like I have to after washing with Nutri Serums– which makes it a smart choice for anyone who wants to simplify their routine. Softsoap particularly recommends this product for summer, which is a good call. If I were using it during Winter, I’d reinforce with some extra post-shower moisturizing.
Basically I really, really like this product and would feel comfortable recommending it to almost anyone. I’m toying with stashing it in my guest room bath so that overnight company can enjoy it as well… but I love using it too much. Fortunately, it’s well-priced, so I can spring for an extra bottle or two.
Softsoap Nutri Serums Mineral Extracts Body Wash is available for $5.49 at Drugstore.com.
