I am on a spree for buying body washes! With summer around, showers are one of the best time of the day. While I was strolling in the nearby super market in Dubai, I spotted the shelf stocked up with the Lux body wash. I sniffed couple of them and decided to give this one a try. I do like floral and fruity fragrances. For me, fragrance plays an important role in my decision to buy a product.
Read further to know how does the Lux Silk Sensation – For noticeably soft skin with SilkEssence & scent of Gardenia Blossom fared.
Price: AED 20 (Approx. Rs. 350/-)
Quantity: 500 ml
Best before: 30 months before the production date seen on pack.
My experience with Lux Silk Sensation Softening Body Wash:
Skin type: Normal
The body wash comes in a sturdy standard Lux body wash bottle with a press open bottle cap. The press open bottle cap ensures no leakage and no product wastage. I hate when product is lost due to packaging. It is a 500 ml bottle, not very travel friendly. The best thing I liked about the product is that is a drugstore product that does not have tall claims. The bottle does not mention how to use the product nor does claim what all it does. It does mention – For noticeably soft skin with its name. I did not expect a lot from the product. I definitely liked its fragrance. It has a floral fragrance with hint of jasmine. The fragrance does not last long once you step out of the shower it is gone in a jiffy. It has a medium consistency – not thick nor is it runny. The product does what it is expected to do. It cleans well. I apply moisturizer after taking a shower. Out of hurry, I once skipped applying moisturizer and I was pleasantly surprised as I had no dry patches or flaky skin.
Pros of Lux Silk Sensation Softening Body Wash:
• It cleans effectively.
• Smells pleasant.
• Sturdy packing.
• Affordable price is a plus.
• Quantity will easily last more than a month.
• It moisturizes well. It works even if you skip the moisturizer. Though, I would advise not to miss one even in summers as it helps body retain its moisture.
• Medium consistency.
• Lathers well.
Cons of Lux Silk Sensation Softening Body Wash:
• Bulky bottle. Not travel-friendly.
• The bottle is opaque. You do not get to know how much product is left.
• Sensitive noses may find smell over-powering.
• Contains lot of chemicals.
• Fragrance does not last long.
Overall verdict on Lux Silk Sensation Softening Body Wash:
As per my experience, the product does what it is expected to do. As I mentioned in the beginning I did not expect a lot from the product. I found it to be a decent product well priced. You can give it a try once if you are looking for a drugstore body wash. Though I know that there are plenty of products in the same range.
Will I repurchase Lux Silk Sensation Softening Body Wash?
No, I don’t think so. There are too many products to try in same price range.
IMBB Rating – 3.75/5
