The Body Shop Love Etc Body Wash Review

A few months back my husband came home and gave me a carry bag from THE BODY SHOP along with a card that read “FOR A BEAUTIFUL AND GLOWING YOU”. It was on my birthday. The bag contained a gift set from The Body Shop comprising of 5 60 ml travel size bottles of their products. Peppermint cooling foot lotion, Cocoa butter hand and body lotion, Coconut shower cream, Love etc body wash and White musk sumptuous silk shower gel. I was completely overwhelmed by his choice as he happens to know my love for miniatures.

The Body Shop Love etc Body Wash
I have decided to review The Body Shop Love Etc Body wash here. I was planning to write a review on this one since I first used it but don’t know how I missed it. So here it is finally.

What the product says.
This soap-free body wash leaves skin subtly scented with the irresistible Love Etc..™ fragrance, a heart-stopping fusion of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood notes.

  • Lather-rich.
  • Love Etc scent.

How To Use:

Lather up in the bath or shower using hands or a bath lily. Rinse thoroughly.

Full Ingredients:

Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Surfactant), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Surfactant), Cocamide DEA (Surfactant), Parfum (Fragrance), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Sodium Chloride (Viscosity Modifier), Mel (Natural Additive), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Coco-Glucoside
(Surfactant), Glyceryl Oleate (Emulsifier), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Sunscreen), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Butylphenyl
Methylpropional (Fragrance Ingredient), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone (Fragrance
Ingredient), Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate (Skin-Conditioning Agent – Emollient), Tocopherol (Antioxidant).


Price and Packaging:

Don’t know the price as its part of the gift set.

I like its packaging. It is slightly different than most of the TBS products that we associate with. It comes in a white bottle with a bright neon pink cap. The front displays numerous hearts in various colors flowing in a spiral array as in a galaxy that simply enhances its beauty and defines its name Love etc giving it a more feminine look.
In the beginning I was very skeptical about using it because of my previous experience with body washes from Amway in gold and honey and lux that had an extremely heady scent. I simply have a phobia for strong scents as they give me quite an undesirable headache that am unable to cope up with without medication.

But I was in for a surprise. It has a light fragrance that’s associated with The Body Shop Love Etc. Perfume that has already been reviewed on IMBB and you can check it out HERE.

The scent lingers on for about two hours after which it eventually fades away. The liquid is absolutely water like in appearance and a very small amount lathers generously. Although with hands also it lathers equally well but I prefer to use a bath lily for better results. Due to the absence of any color one must be careful whilst using a bath lily since more of the liquid might come out than necessary. It gets washed off easily and doesn’t dry out the skin though I prefer to moisturize after bath as my skin is of the slightly dry variation. I can feel my skin soft and smooth and smelling delicious.

Pros of The Body Shop Love Etc Body Wash
1. Attractive packaging with bright colors
2. Lathers profoundly with a small amount of the liquid
3. Fragrance that’s a trademark of Love etc perfume
4. Washes off pretty easily
5. Doesn’t dry the skin
