I have been an ardent fan of Bath and Body Works products, but unfortunately, it’s difficult to get most of these here in India. I really don’t know how they come up with different combinations for their skin products, I guess the same way we do trial and error in the kitchen. So, this time around it was their spice range that intrigued me. They say it works best when the entire range is used together, i.e. body oil, body scrub, body wash and body cream, but I picked up four of their products. Not that I was a big fan of their smell, but I thought I should give them a try.
Price: $14.50 for 10 oz. (296 ml)
An oh-so-fresh blend of White Ginger, Sparkling Cardamom & Sweet Lemon Blossom. With instant moisture after every shower, our body wash is made with natural ginger essential oil & European olive oil to gently cleanse with luxurious lather to leave skin feeling nourished and pampered.
This body wash has a very strong spicy aroma which graduates to a light and pleasant scent.
It comes in a fuss-free plastic tube with a flip-top cap and is very convenient to use and carry. I love the colour of the packaging, it’s a beautiful maroon tube with designs in turquoise and product description in white. The cap is quite secure and hence there is no chance of product leakage. It’s a 300 ml tube so not really travel-friendly.
My Experience with Bath and Body Works Ginger and Cardamom Body Wash with Olive Oil:
I always prefer body washes to soaps. I have extremely dry and sensitive skin and I try to use oil-based washes to help combat that. This body wash is slightly beige in colour and has a thick and creamy texture which spreads very easily. As most creamy washes are, you need to wet your body before you use it, or else it gets tough to apply. More than a body wash it felt like a shower cream. It was very creamy, luxurious and very, very moisturising.
It has natural ginger oil and olive oil, both known for skin enhancing and improving properties. It has SLS and hence foams and lathers well, but at the same time gives you a nice sheen and doesn’t strip skin of its moisture. Post wash, skin feels soft and moisturized. I am not sure about what ginger and cardamom do for the skin, but the presence of natural oils does make a lot of difference. It also has shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, which together make it the best skin savior.
A little amount is good enough and this will last you very long. It really pampers the skin and leaves your skin soft, supple and moisturized. There are times when some of the body washes have left me dry, but this one helps clean without stripping off required moisture. It also helps soothe my dry skin and the effect remains for a good time. There are days when I skip my body lotion and still my skin feels soft and moisturized.
