Clinique Deep Comfort Body Wash
Advantages: Very creamy and moisturising, scent free might be advantageous for those with sensitive skin
Disadvantages: No scent is a disadvantage for me, expensive
I am a big fan of Clinique products and I like to use a lot of their skin care and some of their makeup. However, when it comes to shower gels I usually go for something a bit cheaper as there are some really nice ones out there which don't cost as much as Clinique. I received this Clinique Deep Comfort body wash in a gift set which I bought in the January sales and I have only just got around to using it now as I had such a big stock pile of shower products.
This body wash is unscented and it is described as velvety rich, so it is very moisturising, creamy and nourishing. It is a fairly thick but silky rather than gloopy shower cream which looks a bit shimmery and pearlescent when squeezed out of the tube. Some unscented products have a slight weird smell to them instead of an actual fragrance, but this one simply just doesn't smell of anything. Personally I normally do go for nice fragrances, whether they are fruity, flowery, green and planty, nutty or whatever, so the absolute lack of scent seems a bit disorientating to me as I just expect to smell something fresh and clean in the shower. I do see some good points to being fragrance free though, particularly that this will never have an overpowering scent which lingers and interferes with perfume or body lotion, and also that fragrances can upset sensitive skin so this body wash should be suitable for even the most sensitive skins. Personally though, I do miss having a nice scent.
The consistency of it is lovely and does live up to its velvety claim. It feels very caring and luxurious on my skin. It is definitely very moisturising. The only complaint from me is that it doesn't lather up as much as some other shower gels and creams. I put it on a shower puff and it does lather up somewhat but I have to really squeeze the puff to get all the lather out and it remains more of a cream than proper lather.
I did feel fully clean after washing with this, so I do think it is effective.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to try an intensely creamy and moisturising body wash, but personally I think I would rather stick to slightly cheaper shower products with more exciting scents. If I get another one in a gift set or in a Bonus Time gift (which I think I will as I am planning to get some stuff from Fenwicks which is currently on Bonus Time and this is one of the gifts) then I will happily use it but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.
Summary: A creamy and luxurious body wash but I miss a scent!
