I usually do not incline towards body scrubs as I find my plain vanilla method (read : loofah) quite satisfactory, but with summer moods setting in, discovering a coconut-fragranced body scrub puts a spin into the mix. Introducing – Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub Body Buff Wash.
Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub Body Buff Wash Packaging:
The body wash comes in an interesting plastic body contour. The brown flip top cap is easy to open and use in the shower. The white creamy liquid filled with brown specks of crushed coconut particles that can be easily seen in the bottle. The fragrance of the body wash is apt to its name, as it smells very coconut-y.
15 oz.(443 ml) bottle is priced at $4.99
My Experience with Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub Body Buff Wash:
As the body wash contains jojoba butter extracts, the texture feels creamy, albeit not very thick. The body wash can be applied without loofah as well, but I find it easier using the latter. The body wash foams quite well even though I take a very small amount.
The body wash contains crushed coconut and apricot seed powder for exfoliation. It provides a very gentle exfoliation of the dead skin cells along with grime. I did not find the body wash very harsh on my skin. It is effective to use on the knees, elbows and also on my feet.
The body wash cleanses very well and after the bath, it gives a very fresh and clean feeling. This body wash can be used in all seasons. As it contains exfoliators, I prefer to it use twice a week mostly. I find my skin feeling much smoother.
Once the body wash rinses out, it does not leave any greasy feeling on the skin even though it contains butter extracts. Even with the exfoliator particles, I did not find it harsh on my dry skin. I do have to apply body lotion as I have dry skin, but I did not find my skin very dehydrated.
The body wash has a distinct coconut fragrance, though mildly it feels artificial. I like coconut fragrance and find it to be a very summery fragrance. The fragrance is not overpowering and does not stay on skin after bath. Hence it does not clash with the fragrance of the body lotion that I use afterwards.
The product claims to be soap free, but it contains sodium laureth sulfate. It is a good body wash, which also helps in exfoliation.
