Just like my foot says "Believe"... Believe in Earthwise Nourish 'Indulge' because I know I surely do!!
I was excited to try this Earthwise Nourish 'Indulge' - Coconut, Shea Butter and Manuka body wash as for the past 10years if not longer I have primarly stuck to one brand and type of body wash. Now thats saying something about a good product and the comparison to a long standing favourite was going to be a very tough battle. I am both pleased and shocked to say that after a minimum of 10years I have finally found a body wash that is my favourites equal!! (Nothing at all against this product as to why I can't let it win the battle, just the fact my favourite has been my favourite for such a long time haha).
Earthwise you are simply amazing. You have done it again with an utterly beautiful, scent filled, New Zealand made, no nasties included, moisturising body wash and for that I thank you! Each time I go to use this pump style bottle in the shower I am reminded of all the reasons I am loving this product; the pump and size of the bottle included. The bottle fits in the shower perfectly and its also a great size for if you are travelling or to keep in the caravan for holidays as I plan to do. The pump distributes a good amount of body wash, that is perfectly sufficient to wash yourself with, however my personal preference is to pump a couple of times as I like to have a really good amount of body wash and lather. I have to also say that I love the design/writing/labels of this product and it makes me feel like I am using some expensive as boutique beauty product.
I have found this body wash to leave me extremely clean (I am an early childhood teacher so often come home and into the shower covered with sand, gloop, paint, playdough along with the food, dribble and boggers I probably shouldnt mention)! However at the same time this body wash leaves me moisturised and not at all dried out. My skin can be sensitive and temperamental at the best of times; I suffered from ezcema as a child which can sometimes flare up with some body products so I am stoked that this product agrees so greatly with my skin.
I must admit that the first time I used this product I wasnt sure if I was going to like it, the immediate smell I could detect was the shea butter and for some reason it didn't smell how I expected it would. However like all good things, its become better with time, from the second time/wash that I used it I started to notice the other scents and I consquently love the scent now. I only mention this incase you go to use this product the first time and find the same, give it another go, I promise you wont regret it.
All in all, this product recieves a ten out of ten for all aspects from me so I highly recommend you add this to your shopping list/trolley and give it a try for yourself
I am a busy Mum, who often has to shower with kids coming in to talk to me, husband wanting to know about something, and even the cats deciding I cannot be left alone to shower.... so requesting this was a chance for ME to try something lovely in the short time I get in there!
Having an allergy child in the house, and sensitive skin myself, I am always keen to try things that, hopefully, will not cause irritation or flare ups in my skin. Shea butter and manuka honey are reported to be beneficial to dry and irritated skin, so this seemed ideal.
First the packaging, which I like. The bottle is attractive, you know straight away that Earthwise are the makers, and what the "flavour" of the product is. The bottle itself is large enough to last a wee while if you use normally, but not too big to fit on the shower shelf, or be taken with you if you travel. the pump top makes distribution a breeze also. I like that it clearly shows cruelty free, natural, made here in New Zealand. What I was not fond of was the colour of the "Coconut, Shea Butter and Manuka honey" words - the colour was not super easy to read, which is a shame as it is a lovely colour!
Pumping it out onto my skin I was immediately struck by how silky it felt - so luxurious, without the big price tag, which is always a consideration! I used a puff ball to gently work the bodywash into a lather to spread, and it was easy on all counts. The most dominant smell was the coconut, and I was not able to identify the honey or anything else to be honest. The scent I was not a huge fan of, and hubby described me as smelling like sweet coconut milk! I honestly was reminded of using coconut milk in cooking. This is not to say hubby and I disliked the smell, and as the day progressed, and the scent faded, it was really nice and lasted a long time on my skin. After trying it on myself, I then used it on my allergy child with ezcema skin, and had no problems at all - which is fantastic.
Whilst, for me, this was not a complete win, I passed it on to a friend to use, and she absolutely ADORES it - and I have to admit - she does smell lovely!
I choose to review this product because I already use a lot of the Earthwise products, so when I saw they'd released a new body wash I was really keen to review it. I love their children's range, dishwashing liquid, household cleaners and soaps. As soon as I received the body wash I opened it up and the smell was amazing. Such a delicious coconut smell with a hint of honey, such a sweet, relaxing scent. The smell is definitely my favourite thing about the body wash, it is divine and smells like a luxury treat with a small price tag.
I love the fact the Earthwise Nourish body wash is made in New Zealand and is all natural, and free from all the nasties. My favourite feature with the body wash is the easy to use pump bottle.The first pump the body wash came out, I didn't have to pump it 10-15 times to get the product up the straw which I thought was awesome. It's so nice to have a pump bottle and not having to muck around with opening up the body wash to squeeze it out. I have quite sensitive skin so it's important to me to use gentle products that won't flare my skin up, the nourish body wash has definitely been gentle on my skin and is very moisturizing.
The Earthwise Nourish body wash is only $6.99 for a 400ml bottle which I feel is a bargain for this beautiful body wash. A little bit of body wash goes a long way so I feel the bottle would easily last a month or so. I see on the Earthwise website that it also comes in a 1 litre bottle, which is awesome. I will definitely only be purchasing the Nourish body wash for myself from now on and I would love to try out the other 3 flavours in the nourish body wash range too.
I have very sensitive skin and find I can't use a lot of shower gels or lotions as they make my skin sting and itch. If I use the wrong thing I will often begin itching before I even hop out of the shower and hop out covered in red scratches where I have began to scratch my skin in an attempt to relieve the itch. A constant battle between finding out what I can and can't put on my skin is a bit of a headache and leaves me feeling quite stressed when I see these new fancy products pop up with all the gorgeous sounding fragrances.
I liked this bodywash as it left my skin feeling soft and moisturised after showering and I could work up a nice lather in shower to give my skin a good clean. I did not feel an itch in the shower so I was impressed that I could use something on my skin. Although I know plant based products often have a lower fragrance as they don't have harmful perfumes added I was a little disappointed with the fragrance of this one as I could not really smell much as I was washing.
I do like to walk out of the shower and smell the shower gels but there is a bit of a catch 22 in that the stronger the perfumes the more my skin feels irritated and it is nice to have a bodywash I can use without irritating my skin in shower. I would buy it again and would be keen to try the other fragrance varieties in the nourish range. I have tried the lily handwash and loved the fragrance so perhaps being a coconut and butter type there wasn't anything to give a strong fragrance.
I did find it ever so soft on my skin with the oils from the shea butter and the honey which I do love as ingredients in skincare products I would just of loved more of a fragrance that I could smell on my skin when I hopped out. I am sure it is just a good excuse to try one of the body lotions though so I can experience some more of the range which I would gladly do anytime.
As the nights are getting colder, nothing beats lying back in a hot bath totally submerged and relaxing while the wind is howling outside or its pouring with rain. I love blobbing in a hot bath before crawling under the duvet after a longs day work.
To be honest I have always used a cream based body wash and have always stayed away from the oily kind - but not after experiencing the Earthwise Nourish Natural Body Wash, it will always be in my supermarket trolley from now on. I loved the feel of how oily and silky my skin felt afterwards. I suffer from severe eczema and have to be extremely careful with what I use on my skin, as was evident a couple weeks back. I had used some new items in the bath and also a new moisturiser and I came out in a terrible rash - with out boring you all too much I got acupuncture which spread it thru my system, extremely unwell, doctors, blood tests, very sick and a ton of lectures from family regarding how I need to be more careful bla bla bla so I was really hesitant to try this. But I am so glad I did I love it.
The bath has an oily residue look to it which kinda reminds me of a bubble bath after the bubbles have popped and automatically I can feel the dryness of my legs disappearing as I lie back and enjoy the feeling. My skin has definitely improved and I have found my moisturiser is easier to use also. I have not used directly on my skin in the shower instead I have saved it only for my baths. I only use sensitive products on my girls and both of them have experienced it in the shower with no hesitation and both commented they like how it feels on there skin.
The only issue I have, is from the front the bottle is visually appealing and the green looks so nice but once you turn the bottle around to read the back while in a dim light it is really hard to read. I found the green letters did blur together and the green is extremely difficult to focus on. I had not issues with the black but even in the sunlight I am having trouble focusing on the green. I think in future maybe they should use a different colour as I am sure my eyesight is perfect and if I am having difficulty I can only imagine someone who has poor eyesight is feeling.
I am a self confessed Earthwise fan and pretty much every cleaning product, bathroom and kitchen product is Earthwise. I am always keen to try out different products so I was excited to see the new Earthwise Nourish range. I tried several in the range and the Indulge Coconut, Shea Butter and Manuka Honey natural body wash certainly is indulgent. I love the pump bottle used for the 400 ml wash that is free from sulphates, paragons and palm oil. The dispensing pump is really easy to use and the size of the bottle means that it fits nicely in the shower shelf as well as in my hand. I prefer this over the other Earthwise bottles as having a pump means less waste especially with the kids.
Two of my girls have developed sensitivities to soaps and this is a wash that they are able to use without any skin reactions. The texture of the wash is perfect and I love the scent and feel of this. The coconut is always a favourite of mine but this is a nice subtle scent that leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. This range of Earthwise body wash is my favourite of all of them and I think I will have this as my new bathroom staple. I can definitely recommend this range especially this scent. Cost wise I have seen this on sale but with the dispensing bottle this seems to have lasted for a lot longer than I expected so I consider this great value for money and would still buy it (shock!) even at full price.
Body washes are a toiletry item that seem to have crept in gradually so that nowadays it is rare to see soap in a shower cabinet or on a bathroom basin unless it is a designer product, and it often sits alongside the aforementioned body wash anyway. Supermarket shelves feature a bewildering variety so it is necessary to be selective when buying.
I was delighted that Earthwise have included this one in their range. I love the smell of coconut so that is always a drawcard for me anyway, and this one contains shea butter as well However, although the product label lists these items as the main ingredients (along with manuka honey), there is no strong smell from any of them. Rather, the scent is delicate and you have to concentrate to be able to identify it. At the same time, the elusive aroma lingers after you have rinsed so you emerge from the shower fresh and fragrant!
The package size is perfect for when you are travelling - big enough to last a few days, even when several family members are sharing it, but not so big that it is unwieldy. Larger pump bottles can be a nuisance to use as you can't extract a blob without using both hands. For me, that usually means that I end up dropping the container and having to feel for it because I don't wear my glasses in the shower! Having a size designed for one-hand use is much more sensible.
One squirt gives you a good size lathering and I found it mild enough to use on my face as well as the rest of me. I accidentally got some in my eye but it did not do any harm; it rinsed straight out again as soon as I put my face under the shower head. I also used it when I had a large scratch (from pruning roses) on my leg and it was fine with that too; there was no stinging or irritation.
Four of us used it over the course of a weekend, and two of my friends were delighted too. They enjoyed the understated scent and the smoothness of their skin after they had finished washing. One was keen to buy some for herself and asked me where she could get some.
The fourth member of our party, however, had a minor skin reaction after she had used it. Her hands and lower arms came up in little red spots. She does suffer from eczema, but frequently uses other products containing manuka honey and coconut and shea, so the culprit is unlikely to be any of those three. We checked out the other ingredients and it does contain several surfactants so it could have been one of these that had caused it. She waited for two days then tried it again, this time just on her hands, but she had the same reaction within minutes. I left the bottle with her for the week; she waited five days then tried it a third time, and the same thing happened - so it is fairly certain that this is one person that will not be able to use the body wash. She has used many other Earthwise products in the past without incident so it has to be something that is exclusive to this one.
So - three out of four of us are giving it the thumbs up and will continue to use it. I have retrieved the rest of the bottle from my friend and am pleased to see that the bottle is still over half full. I intend to keep the rest for myself!
