I like to be squeaky clean when I come out of the shower and of course smell heavenly! I have been using body washes with oil for extra moisturization and as the temperatures are going up, I decided to indulge in something more buttery. I have used Palmolive Gourmet Spa Chocolate Shower Cream and I absolutely loved it; it was like my body ate chocolate! So when I saw Vanilla from the same range, I couldn’t resist picking this up. And there was a couple offer for Valentine’s Day, so I got 2 different shower gels for €5!!
Price: €3.49 for 250 ml (I bought 2 as a couple offer for €5)
What the Company Claims:
Let your skin smell irresistible and feel the Palmolive Gourmet Vanilla Pleasure Shower Cream. The shower cream with vanilla extract moisturizes your skin.
My Take on Palmolive Gourmet Vanilla Pleasure Body Butter Wash:
I love the smell of Vanilla in the body wash! Actually I am tempted to try anything that smells like food. The product is off white and has a creamy smooth texture. The packing is satisfactory. It comes in a plastic translucent curvy bottle, and you can see the quantity of the product. The flap is not that great and I am sure in the coming days I would break it! The smell is rich and indulgent. I love how it leaves the fragrance in the whole bathroom!
The product is thick and it is always an exercise to get the product out; it is very slippery because of the consistency and you need to be fast to slather it on your body if not using a loofah! The product doesn’t lather much and getting it off the body is a task and you need a lot of water. As I have already used the chocolate version, this disappointed me on the first day. I have been using this for quite some time now and I realized that it leaves a layer-like residue which I thought was the product not washing off. The smell stays longer than the chocolate version and it leaves the skin smooth but doesn’t provide any moisturization. You can feel the skin going dry after a couple of minutes and you need a lotion to your rescue. It can only be a summer time wash and cannot be used during the dry weathers.
So summing up,
Pros of Palmolive Gourmet Vanilla Pleasure Body Butter Wash:
• Tempting indulgent fragrance.
• A good summer body butter wash.
Cons of Palmolive Gourmet Vanilla Pleasure Body Butter Wash:
• Doesn’t provide good moisturization.
• The product is very thick and it is a trouble to get it out.
• It is very slippery and takes time to wash off.
IMBB Rating: 2/5
Will I Repurchase Palmolive Gourmet Vanilla Pleasure Body Butter Wash?
Never! There is nothing good except the rich fragrance!
