- 99.2% Natural
A good body wash with a light, almost nonexistent scent!
99.2% natural & sulfate-free, what more can I say!!! This is a great body wash that has almost no smell. The only complaint I have is that you can go through a body rather quickly as it is not very thick and there is not very many exfoliating beads, so it is more creamy and not very gritty or exfoliating!I would highly recommend this body wash for anyone who is trying to go natural and who also likes the clean feeling this body wash provides while still being fairly environmentally friendly!
Who Stole All of My Scruby Bits?
I quote: “This creamy natural body wash is infused with jojoba beads, so it exfoliates while you cleanse.”Infused? Really? Uhh, No.At first I thought the beads might have settled to the bottle while sitting on the shelf or something, so I kept shaking it and even had it sitting upside down ready for my next shower.But really it turns out that they only put about 5 jojoba beads in each bottle. Which is wierd because Burts usually does a really good job on thier products. There really is not any exfoliating going on here unless you are squeezing it out onto a loofah and washing with it that way. Which is what I am doing now. The milky base for the body wash is ok. So with the loofah it will still be worth using the rest of the bottle. But even then the wash almost smells a bit too perfumy for a natural based product, otherwise I might have given it at least 3 stars.The irony is that the small polished jojoba beads would have been perfect for their Willow Bark face scrub which, unfortunatly is the only only other Burt’s Bees product that I have been disenchanted with on account of the overly harsh and sharp Peach Stone bits that would have been much better suited for this body product!
Smells Really Nice
The exfoliation in this is very gentle, which is great for me since I have thin skin due to taking certain medications for a very long period of time. It’s a large container and it smells really good! Kind of citrus-y, so nice for in the mornings, but not enough to knock you over so, still good for night time too. I really like it!
Husband Loves This Stuff
I’m trying to move him away from other, more chemical laden personal care products and this was the biggest win I’ve had so far. It’s got a good lather and he likes the exfoliating bead things. I dig the aroma, since it smells warm and milky, so it’s a natural clean smell on the skin (with more conventional washes, it smells too much like girly flowers or too much like Axe or Old Spice).
Burt’s Bees Exfoliating Body Wash
I generally like Burt’s Bees products. They contain decent ingredients and most seem to really work well. They even have some decent scents to them. But this one just didn’t do it for me.The body wash is advertised as being exfoliating. There was no exfoliating going on here. In fact, it didn’t even really lather. Which left me feeling less than clean as it was just kind of like swirling lotion around on my skin without rubbing it in. So then I tried the bath bubble test, which is normally how I get rid of products that don’t work well on a poof. It even failed at that as it produced a minute amount of bubbles and they disappeared quickly. All I can really say is that my skin was nicely scented after using this product. I also should note that it says it has royal jelly and jojoba beads in the product. I can believe the jelly but I didn’t see any beads while using the product.And the scent is nice. Just kind of a light floral scent that definitely isn’t overpowering. In fact, you don’t even smell it unless you lift your arm up and sniff it. So you won’t be knocking anyone out with the perfumed scent if you try this product. The ingredient were mostly natural too to produce the scent. Although there were a few in there that I couldn’t pronounce. And the same applies to all the ingredients. It was a rather lengthy list for a Burt’s Bees product.I wouldn’t buy this body wash again. Maybe one of their other ones. But there just wasn’t anything to go back for with this particular product.Review by M. Reynard 2012
