Product Claims:

Made with natural ingredients • Contains 100% natural extracts • Formulated without parabens and phthalates • Does not contain animal ingredients • Dermatologist-tested • Hypoallergenic.

Key Ingredients:

Citrus is an instant go-to ingredient because of its refreshing scent, but that’s just the beginning of this fruit family’s power. Citrus-based cleansers have long been known for their naturally astringent, pore-tightening properties, and our body washes are no exception. Citrus extract is also a skin-softening force to be reckoned with, so get ready for clean, balanced, invigorated skin.

My Experience with St. Ives Energizing Citrus Moisturizing Body Wash:

This is such a nice body wash, the scent is clean, citrusy and refreshing. It’s not sweet at all and smells like crisp lemons and citrus fruits!!The scent is very much like freshly squeezed grapefruit. Great for summer and great for morning wake-up.  The scent fills the shower, but doesn’t linger long on the skin, which is a disappointment.

St. Ives 4

It lathers well, the cleansing power is decent, and it rinses clean, skin feels good afterwards. It generates tons of lather on a bath sponge, but isn’t super drying or harsh. But it is not as moisturizing as some of the other body washes I have used but that figures since this is a gel and I have mostly used body wash in cream forms.

I would suggest this to someone who has oily skin because it takes the oily feeling away as soon as you use it. The bottle lasts forever.

I love the fact that it is formulated without parabens and phthalates and not tested on animals.  I would definitely recommend to try this for the coming summer.
