My Experience with Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Body Wash:

Packaging:  Comes packaged in a transparent good quality plastic bottle with a metal-coloured screw on cap which has Molton Brown written on it. The cap has an outer plastic covering/seal. The screw on cap has a press-open mechanism on the top, which has a small opening to pour the shower gel out. This enables to pour the required amount of shower gel into your palms or on the bath lily, thereby avoiding extra spillage and unnecessary wastage. So the full cap need not be opened always, unless required.

I am one lazy person, who prefers having morning bath with a soap bar and exfoliating my body with a body scrub once a week. Shower gel is not my daily cup of coffee, especially during mornings. However, I like to use shower gels on weekends and evenings. Also for hygiene purpose, I prefer using smaller/travel size shower gels whilst travelling. I do like experimenting with shower gels and prefer buying the smaller size, in case I don’t like it. Having used the 30 ml ylang-ylang body wash, free sample from Molton Brown, I decided to buy the bigger size of 300 ml for relaxing baths.

It’s a dark purple-coloured liquid shower wash and the aroma itself is relaxing, just soothes my senses. I first shower with water, then pour a few drops of ylang-ylang body wash on a moistened bath lily and use it to cleanse my body and then wash my body thoroughly. It does not lather much, just perfect. Being an aromatic product, I avoid using it directly on my arm pits and pubic area. A few drops in the bath tub on weekends does wonders, thoroughly relaxes my body and mind. Ylang-ylang oil helps moisturise the skin and has anti-microbial properties that can help reduce skin irritation and redness. It also works as an antidepressant, antiseptic and sedative. Yuan zhi is a Chinese name for polygara root, which is known for traditionally being used as natural calmative as it helps relax the mind; calm emotions and aid sleep process. It is said to help balance the inner energies and gain confidence. It is also said to have aphrodisiac qualities. Cardamon has the ability to reduce spasms, reduce nausea; it has antiseptic, antimicrobial, aphrodisiac and astringent qualities. Musk works as an antioxidant, anti-fungal, antiseptic and antimicrobial. It also has astringent properties, aromatic, anti-toxic, purifying and hydrating assets. What more can one want for an evening shower wash and for a relaxing weekend bath tub soaking? A few drops of Molton Brown ylang-ylang!

It takes off all the stress from my mind and fatigue from my body. Thoroughly relaxes my body and soothes my senses. Has all the skin caring and cleansing properties required in a body wash. However, it does contain sodium laureth sulphate, which could be a put off for many of us. Cannot be labelled travel friendly, quite bulky to carry in bag packs. Price could be a con for some, being a luxurious product; £20/- for 300 ml is not bad in my opinion since a little goes a long way. Another good thing about shower gels compared to soaps is that you can share it with your family members.
