Today I am here to share my views on Molton Brown Coco and Sandalwood Body Wash. It’s a refreshing coconut and sandalwood body wash with a beautiful fragrance. It not only cleanses but moisturises and nourishes the skin too. To know more about this body wash in detail, kindly continue reading.
Price: £10 for 100ml
Why you’ll love it
Inspired by an idyllic morning on a Filipino beach, it will turn your cleansing routine into a serene spa-like experience.
Best for – Blended with Filipino coconut fruit extract and moisture-locking honey-derived complex, this blissful bath and shower gel helps restore tired skin.
Top note: coconut.
Heart note: jasmine.
Base note: sandalwood.
Extract: coconut fruit.
It comes packaged in a good quality transparent plastic bottle with a metallic screw open cap. The size is 100ml, especially designed to make it travel-friendly. However, the screw open cap is not leakproof. In my opinion, an inner cap should be provided to make it leak-proof.
My Experience with Molton Brown Coco and Sandalwood Body Wash:
I hate being stuck with shower gels, lotions or body scrubs which do not gel with my body chemistry. Even if I am not traveling regularly, I like opting for miniature or travel-size products if available. This helps me decide if I want to go for the bigger size without being stuck with the product incase I do not like it. Recently, I picked up these six travel-size body products from Molton Brown and I’ll be reviewing them all very soon:
1). Coco & Sandalwood Body Wash 100ml
2). Templetree Body Wash 100ml
3). Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel 100ml
4). Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea Bath & Shower Gel 100ml
5). Coco & Sandalwood Nourishing Body Lotion 100ml
6). Heavenly Gingerlily Caressing Body Polisher 50g
So, let’s begin with my views. It is a neutral liquid body wash. The fragrance is dominated by sandalwood. The top notes of coconuts last for a few seconds, heart notes of jasmine are very subtle and the base notes of sandalwood fragrance keep on lingering for an hour or two on my body. It’s a nice option for both morning and evening showers as the body wash makes me feel refreshed, relaxed and cool. And, it makes my body smell of sandalwood for quite sometime. I pour this body wash on a wet bath lily to cleanse my body. Since it is a screw open cap and does not have an inner cap or a smaller outlet to pour out the body wash, I have to be careful while pouring the body wash to avoid wastage. This body wash not only cleanses but also nourishes and moisturises my body skin well. It is blended with the goodness of coconut fruit extract, jasmine and sandalwood.
Coconut oil is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is an excellent skin moisturiser. Jasmine oil is known for its beautiful fragrance and contains carminative, analgesic, anti-inflammatory agents. The body wash helps relax body and keeps it calm and cool. Sandalwood is relaxing, calming and invigorating at the same time. It is a natural aphrodisiac, astringent, anti-viral, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory in nature. It is a good body wash which mildly moisturises my body, and I have no issues skipping my body cream or lotion after a shower. I feel this body wash was a good option for summers, but it can be used throughout the year. During winters after showering with this body wash, I will have to use a body lotion or a cream since my skin tends to become dry and requires extra nourishment. The size is definitely travel-friendly, but not the cap. One of the shower gels had slightly leaked in the parcel when I received it. In my opinion, something needs to be revised with the cap to make it leak-proof or at least an inner leak-proof cap should be provided.
