As I’ve mentioned before, while you’ll never catch me taking a bath, I love an extravagant shower item. Especially an extravagant shower item I can use with my Turkish bath mitt. I LOVE YOU, TURKISH BATH MITT.
Recently, Dermstore had one of their frequent sales, so of course, I purchased more fancy body washes.
PLANT Apothecary is owned by a husband and wife team, and the company makes organic products that don’t have any petroleum, parabens, PABA, sodium lauryl sulfate (my enemy), or silicones (the body wash ingredients are olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba, aloe vera, and essential oils). The company also partners with a nonprofit that gives work to mentally and physically disabled adults—who assist with production/distribution, so that’s pretty neat.
Geranium and peppermint scented, GET HAPPY body wash is fine and fine. I like it. I smell more peppermint than geranium. It does the same thing that Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Pure-Castile Liquid Soap does when it gets near any…parts of yourself…that might be surprised by an icy cold peppermint sensation. Not that it’s terrible. Just. Something to note. You know what I’m saying.
I feel a certain kind of way about products with suggestive or suggesting names and descriptions that say things like: “organic essential oils of aphrodisiac sandalwood, ginger, and cedar, for a sensual shower or bubble bath when it’s time to…” Sigh. Why is “sensual” still a word.
That being said, I love, love, LOVEEEEE GET IT ON body wash. I love the way it smells in the shower. I love the way it feels. And I love the way it smells after a shower. It’s gingery and woody, but not woody in a barky way—woody in a clean and fresh, but still warm way. Man, I’m so good at describing smells.
Anyway. I love it.
Also, both of these, for some inexplicable reason—#science?—feel like they let me have a much closer shave. When I feel like shaving my legs. Maybe it’s because they’re very moisturizing. Whatever it is. #science. They both feel great. But the one I’ll be buying again, for sure, is…well, I don’t want to write that name again, but you know which one.
