Soap & Glory Clean Girls Body Wash
Advantages: The bottle has lasted me months and only a small amount is required for a decent lather.
Disadvantages: The scent becomes quite boring, rather quickly. I wanted softer skin!
I'm not too fussy when it comes to body wash and shower gels, as long as it smells decent and leaves me feeling clean I'm happy. I'm not even too bothered about them being moisturising as I most often use some form of body moisturiser after showering anyway. The first thing I thought of when I did see this body wash however, was that this product was going to last me a long time. You see it comes in a 500ml bottle and with a pink pump at the top so it's easily dispensed in the shower, and I'm writing this review as I come to almost the end of the bottle after using the product for many months now. It certainly lasted me a long time, but what do I think about the product?
I should point out that this body wash should not be confused with the 'Clean On Me' shower gel that Soap & Glory. Packaged very similarly and carrying out the same purpose it can be easy to do so. Clean, Girls is scent with the 'Mist You Madly' scent by Soap & Glory which has notes of Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Magnolia, Freesia, Vanilla and Musk. The scent of this shower gel and whether I like it or not depends on my mood, it's certainly not a weak scent and it is very noticeable in the shower and will linger on the skin for a good while afterwards. I sometimes find myself enjoying the smell of this body wash, but after using it for many months it is quite understandable that I am quite tired of the scent and I am ready to move on to something else! With such a large bottle, you may find yourself alternating with other shower gels for a 'change of scenery' where the scent is concerned.
The body wash is easy to dispense using the pump, I usually pump it a few times onto a puff, and it lathers up easily. It's a decent body wash in all respects, it makes me feel clean, it has a nice enough scent (if not a little too strong and lingering) and it really does the job. A problem I do have however is that the body wash claims to have a built in 'moisturising matrix.' I don't find the body wash any more moisturising than your average shower gel which doesn't claim to do so, and I do still use a moisturiser after showering with this body wash. I probably would wish for it to make skin feel more softer than it does.
The large 500ml bottle costs £5.87 from Boots (although there are always offers on this range) and whilst this is quite pricey for what I would pay for a shower gel, it is a large bottle and it has lasted me many months. This is because a small amount lathers up really well and the pump action stops you from pouring or squeezing out excessive amounts, so you can't say that it's not value for money. Would I buy this one again? Probably not, after using this for such a long time I have become bored with it, and it doesn't feel as luxurious as I would probably expect from the S&G range. It might have a nice scent, but it can be overpowering and does linger around afterwards, causing you to quickly become tired of smelling the same thing. It doesn't make my skin feel any different, there is not enough softening of the skin to make me happy, and it seems to lack any exciting benefits to continue using it.
Summary: It's not the most exciting product in the S&G range.
