Burt’s Bees has long been one of my favorite “all natural” brands of personal care products, and the >b>Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash is another product on my highly recommended list.
Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash comes in a clear plastic 12 ounce bottle. The cap has the flip top that makes it easy to use, and the shape of the bottle is a bit taller and smaller in diameter, which makes it very easy to hold in the shower or bath. This product is 99.24% natural!
Water, Decyl Glucoside, Lauryl Glucoside, Sucrose Laurate, Coco Betaine, Betaine, Coco Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Glyceryl Oleate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Rosmarinus Officialis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cymbopogon Schoeanthus (Lemongrass) Extract, Humulus Lupulas (Hops) Extract, Melissa Officinalis (Balm Mint) Extract, Glycerin, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey, Natural Fragrance, Glucose, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Glucose Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase.
Since the bottle is clear, you can see the light amber liquid easily and know when you are getting low, I love that! This body wash uses all natural ingredients such as coconut oil, peppermint oil, rosemary oil, yarrow root, and lemongrass.
The scent of peppermint and rosemary are the two strongest scents that are immediately noticeable, and it certainly gives you that awakening feeling when you are using this first thing in the morning! I would go so far as to say the scent is invigorating.
Since this product contains coconut oil instead of synthetic detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate, I find the Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash to be much more gentle and moisturizing to the skin. SLS is not an ingredient that meets the standards of the Natural Product Association.
Even though some natural cleansers, (mostly shampoo), don’t lather as well as the chemical alternatives, the Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash does indeed give a nice, soft lather, and the wonderful fresh scent of this body wash lingers on the body long after a shower or bath, and I find that a hugely positive aspect of this body wash. I would call the lather that this product provides rich and fragrant!
Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash cleans well, and leaves the skin feeling smooth and smelling great. The directions say you can add it to a sponge, loofah, washcloth, or pour directly into your hands. I find it works the best when using one of those nylon scrubbers, which helps add lather and works to exfoliate the skin.
As stated earlier, coconut oil naturally moisturizes the body, the peppermint oil stimulates the senses and opens the nasal passages, and citrus is energizing to the mind.
Burt’s Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash retails for $8.00, and is sold in natural foods stores, as well as grocery stores such as Fred Meyer, who has a separate nutrition/natural foods center. If you can’t find it locally, you can order it online directly from Burt’s Bees, or from other online store like Drugstore dot com.
