I love...Strawberries and Milkshake Body Wash
Actually, now that I think about it, it kind of is surprising because the advertisement isn't particularly good. Anyway, I was in need of some body wash/shower creme and anything with the words "Strawberries" and "Milkshake" is sure to be a winner, so I decided I was going to have it. Yes, this little - well kind of large - bottle was going to be mine.
And it was, but not the way I thought it would be. A friend of mine bought it for my birthday, with a couple of other lovely things too. It even had a pretty white ribbon tied around it!
So, is it as good as I had expected? Yes it really is! As usual I am going to start with the fragrance because after all, that is the most important part!
It smells absolutely gorgeous, reasonably similar in fact, to my Strawberry body butter. I could smell this non stop for the rest of my life and I would never get sick of it. It's so creamy and sweet, if this was a dessert, it would be truly incredible. The strawberry scent is very noticeable which I like - this is not a subtle scent at all.
The body wash itself is amazing. It lathers up so well and gets all soapy and bubbly in no time. It feels so good on the skin and it washes off really well (you know how sometimes you have to spend hours scrubbing trying to get the soap off, well this isn't one of those products).
A fair amount is required per use, however the bottle is 500mL which I think will last a pretty long time. The flip top cap is really handy and easy to use in the shower. I have had one with a screw top lid once which was the biggest pain ever, so this is magical to me!
There was only one problem that I had with this, and that was that it didn't last on my skin. In fact, as soon as I got out of the shower the fragrance had left me. Is that common? Do shower gel fragrances usually stay on the skin or not?
Apart from that, I loved this product, which fits in with the product name, and give it 8/10 (yes, I am really disappointed the fragrance doesn't stay!) The lip balm is next on my list, and I'm sure that that will be just as good.
