Key Ingredient Benefits

  • Honey – Humectant, antioxidative properties, wound healing [1]
  • Shea Butter – Moisturizing, reduces inflammation, smooths skin, [2, 3]
  • Camwood – anti-microbial, soothes skin  [4, 5]

Fragrance: I bought the coconut and vanilla version of this soap. The fragrance reminds me of cake because the vanilla scent is a bit stronger than the coconut. The overall scent is not strong and it does not linger.

Texture and Color: The soap is medium brown and pretty runny. It does not lather  as well as some other body washes that I’ve used.

Packaging: The body wash comes in a long dark brown plastic bottle. The bottle has a press top cap and it is easy to squeeze the product out. The label is easy to read and indicates all the important information about the product.

Uses: Even though this product is indicated for body use, I used this soap on my face and body.

My Take: This body wash was just average, in my opinion. I mentioned earlier that it does not lather very well. Initially, I thought it was due to the water I was using. However, other soaps and detergents lather and foam quite well. I’m used to a pretty rich lather when I bathe so I ended up using more product than I usually would. It cleans well and it isn’t overly drying. It leaves more moisture than bar soaps. Your skin will not feel dry with this product. I prefer this soap for more my face (rather than my body). It’s mild but gets my face pretty clean.  The fragrance is also nice. I like vanilla scents because they remind me of cake. 😀

Would I purchase it again? No, I would not. I ended up using more product than I would have liked because of the lack of lather. If you don’t mind having foam when you bathe, you may like this product.
