Dr.Hauschka Lemon Body Wash
Advantages: Smells great and leaves skin lemony fresh
I was first introduced to Dr Hauschka products by my Mother in Law, who loves her natural products and essential oils. I have tried a few of their products over the years and have always dipped in and out of using them, but found them to be good when I do. The Lemon body wash appealed to me as I like to feel refreshed in the morning and having a blast of lemon in my shower usually wakes me up a bit.
I bought the body wash from my local health food store for £10.25, for a 150ml tube. The product comes in a plastic white tube that is simply designed, it has a screw top lid that is easy to use and does not leak.
The body wash is suitable for all skin types, including oily, normal, mature and sensitive. It is soap free and contains natural ingredients that aim to revive your body, and its plant oils soothe, nourish and soften your skin. The body wash contains lemon and ginger. It contains the following ingredients:
Spring water, Coco-Glucoside, Glycerin, Sodium Coco-Glucoside Tartrat, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Laurate Prunus Spinosa Fruit Extract, Hamamelis, Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract Lysolecithin, Capryloyl Glycine, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Fragrance/Parfum, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Plant Alcohol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Xanthan Gum, Sucrose Laurate, Propolis Wax, Xanthophyll, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex/CI 75810.
To use the product I squeeze a good amount of the body wash onto a shower puff and then clean my body, I find that as the ingredients are natural and plant derived that the body wash does not lather up as much as other body washes and at first I would use too much product trying to get a good lather going. There is no need to do this as it cleans very well the way it is designed. The scent of lemon is fairly strong and it definitely perks me up in the morning , the scent of ginger is not as strong as the lemon but its still refreshing. I find that the body wash feels creamy, in consistency, it is opaque in colour with a slight shimmer. It leaves my skin feeling soft and well cleansed and my skin does not feel tight after use. I have fairly sensitive skin and I have never had any issues in terms of irritation. I still use a body moisturiser after use, more out of habit that necessity, but I think with regular use I would be able to use it every other day. The scent lingers on my skin for a while after use, which is nice as the lemon smell keeps me feeling fresh.
Overall I would recommend this product to others as it smells great, leaves my skin feeling soft and clean, and perks me up in the morning. The only downside to the product is that it is expensive, therefore I give the body wash 4 Dooyoo stars.
Summary: Great product that leaves your sking soft and clean
