“ Brand: Primark / Type: Body Wash / Suitable for: Body „
Lately I have been trying out a variety of bath, shower and body products from Primark. I shop in a couple of Primarks (one in my town and another I have to travel miles to) and I love the bargains I can pick up! This particular product usually retails at £1.70 a bottle but recently in both of the shops I visit all the toiletries have been reduced and this I kept seeing at 50p a bottle so I decided I really must give it a go and with a saving of £1.20 I couldn't resist giving it a go! The Packaging: 250ml cylinder see-through plastic bottle with a silver coloured twist on/off cap/lid to the top of it concealing a large hole. On the front in a red coloured and white writing I'm told it is Beauty Blitz 'Dancing on sunshine zesty body wash to brighten your day'. On the back of the bottle other information includes being told a bit about the product and I'm told how to use it, ingredients are listed, the size is stated and contact details for Primark are given. It's a nice enough and informative bottle and a decent size too! The Body Wash Itself: Well the body wash is a light orange in colour with a real shimmer to it which is gold. This is a shimmer by the way and NOT glitter thank goodness lol. All you need is a blob of this on a sponge or whatever and you rub it over a damp/wet body and it lathers up rather well into bit white bubbles. Smell wise well it's actually rather nice actually! I thought with it being orange and promising being zesty on the bottle it would be really strongly fragranced but actually it isn't! It does smell of oranges but in a really light and natural way opposed to being overpowering and the fragrance is suitable in my opinion for men and women alike. It does cleanse and refresh a bit, I can shave with this and it rinses off with total ease too. When I'm dried off I feel clean, refreshed and my skin is very gently hydrated but not too much so. However.... I don't know why this has a gold shimmer to it cos that can't be seen on my skin and sadly as I touched on earlier the body wash isn't in your face fragrance wise and the smell of this left my skin within half an hour too. Verdict: I find with this I need rather alot to get enough foam and I don't find it as strong in fragrance as I would personally like it to be and sadly because the smell leaves the skin so quickly I don't feel as fresh and clean as I would like to. Not a bad body wash but it's really nothing special at all but it looks so nice in the bottle as well! Only available in Primark stores.
