The other day I found myself in my local independent chemist and remembered I needed to stock up a bit on some shower products as I was running low and this was on offer for a pound. I quite simply liked the packaging of it and knew I was making a saving so with a couple of scents to choose from opted after a quick scent to purchase this one!
This comes in a see through plastic bottle that has a flip top lid to the top of it and on the front of it we are clearly told what is it and who it is by and that it is 250ml in size and that it is 97% natural and on the back of the bottle we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are given, we are told that from once using it to use it up within 12 months and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly given. Nice bottle, easy to use and its informative enough too and I do appreciate being able to see the light pink, creamy looking product through it so I know when to replace!
Well this is said to be scented with coconut however it doesn't smell of coconut to my nostrils at all and to me smells a bit of roses with a plenty of a musky aroma and no matter what it smells of I do like it and define it as a feminine scent. It lathers up nicely though not overly so and feels really moisturising in use though not greasy. I was able to shave using this alone and it rinsed off simply and I was left feeling clean and fresh and scented with this gently for a few hours afterwards too.
Though I can't rave about this simply due to it not lathering up as much as I appreciate I do like the fact that it gently moisturises my skin and I guess to sum up I'd say worth if it you see it like me on offer though I wouldn't pay more for it as it really isn't anything special!

Having bought Coco de Mer body butter, I couldn't not buy Ooh La La Naked Coco De Mer Body Wash. It comes in a 250ml bottle with a lid at the top. The bottle is fairly see-through (which I like, because being a control freak, I like to know how much product I have left) and contains basic information about the product on the front, with further information about the company, their ethics and ingredients of this body wash at the back.
In case someone doesn't know how to use it, there is a brief description at the back ('rub onto wet skin and use a buff puff for more lather. Rinse off'). The body wash has a baby pink colour and I really like its texture - it isn't very runny but it isn't overly thick either.
According to the producer, 'moisturising coconut derivatives and passion fruit flower extract produce a rich creamy lather'. In fact, this wash lathers up pretty well however given the description, not as well as I expected (I need to add that I normally use a shower puff for better lather). I am not entirely sure how moisturising it is - it definitely doesn't dry the skin but I wouldn't call it moisturising as I still needed to use a body butter, especially for more dry places like my elbows.
The body wash has a fairly intense, rich scent. I can definitely sense coconut and passion fruit there but it's probably one of the worst scents I have smelled in my life. I am honestly not a fan and I don't know anyone who likes this scent (I tried giving it to some of my friends).
One good side of this body wash is that it is made without any sulphates, parabens or petrochemicals. It also isn't tested on animals and 97% of ingredients are natural. Despite the good company's ethics, I will not be buying it again as I can find many more good shower gels for this price (£3.99 online for a 250ml bottle).
Thank you for reading my review.
