I'm very particular about the skincare products I use. I always look for brands that are not tested on animals which are kind to skin and the planet. These are very important factors that determine my decision. I feel that it is worth paying that little bit extra for a product that is environmentally friendly.
I discovered the Dead Sea Spa range in Holland & Barrett some time ago, and I decided to buy a couple of their items to try them out. The Refreshing Bath Shower Gel in their range is a product that I have purchased a few times now, as I find it is a good natural product. The body wash is available in a couple of different sizes, and the one I am currently using holds 350 mls of product. You can expect to pay around £7.55, which makes this more of an indulgent treat.
The body wash is housed in a tall white container with a press down blue cap. The small opening makes it easy to take the right amount. The packaging on all of their products is simple and minimalistic in design. I like the clean white packaging which is accentuated with blue lettering. It gives it a nice fresh look that can go well in any bathroom.
The soap is a delightful, vivid blue colour, which boasts a rich gel consistency. It has a very subtle scent that isn't immediately detectable, which is good for those that prefer a body wash that doesn't leave an over powering scent. When used on a body sponge it lathers up well producing creamy white soap suds. It provides a sufficient amount to wash with, if a little too much. Being encased in the creamy white suds feels luxurious. It is soft and kind to the skin and it rinses away with ease.
Once rinsed off the skin feels soft, clean and cared for. Towelling down reveals silky soft skin which feels comfortable. No sticky residue is left behind and the skin is soft to the touch. It causes no irritation, even on the most delicate of skin. It causes no irritation to my partner's delicate skin which is prone to eczema and drying.
I occasionally use this soap on my little boy, as it contains no harsh chemicals. He often rubs his soapy hands into his eyes whilst under the shower; however, this causes no irritation. I have used this soap on his skin a few times, and it leaves it feeling soft and causes no drying on his delicate skin at all. His skin feels wonderful, and he is left with his own sweet smell after showering, rather than an artificial scent.
The only drawback to this product is the high price, as this makes it more of a treat. This is certainly not a product I can afford for everyday use for all the family; however, it is nice to indulge once in a while. This is a product I have used a few times now, whilst it's nice there are better alternatives that are more affordable for my budget.
This body wash proves to be effective for all the family to use. It is kind and caring to the skin and to the planet, too.
