Product Review: Palmolive Body Butter Luscious Mango

Shower Gels is one of those everyday essentials, so I was very excited when I was asked to trial the new *Palmolive Body Butter in Luscious Mango. Here are my thoughts;

What they Say:
"Indulge your skin with Palmolive Body Butter Luscious Mango Body Wash. This Luscious formula with delightful moisture-locking ingredients transforms into rich, creamy bubbles, leaving your skin feeling satiny smooth and superbly clean. What are you waiting for? Indulge yourself with some moisture decadence today!"

RRP: $6.49 for 400ml – Available from supermarkets.

What I Say:
I love love love mangoes, so this mango body wash smells absolutely divine to me. It reminds me of a mango smoothie, smelling fresh and summery.

The body wash comes in a stylish and functional curvy bottle, with a flip top lid that is easy to open in the shower even with wet hands. I have to admit that I do like shower gels that come in a pump bottle, and because of the design of this bottle which has a curved top, it will make it a little tricky for it to stand up side down when it comes time to completely empty the bottle.

The actual body wash is a very thick formula, but Palmolive does also call it a body butter and not a shower gel, which does explain the consistency. Due to the thick consistency it does take a bit of a squeeze to get the body wash out of the bottle.

The body wash is easy to spread across the body but when used with a shower pouf it is even easier to work up to a thick and lather, while it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean.

After showering, my skin didn't feel as tight and uncomfortable as it normally does before I put on lotion and I believe that it does up my skin hydration, especially when compared to soap. After the shower my skin feels soft, subtle and moisturised, and I probably could get away without moisturising, but my dry skin would still be thirsty, so even though I may not need it, I still prefer to put on my regular body lotion.

Once dried off from the shower, the body wash leaves the skin with a gorgeous, but subtle scent of mangoes, which however is so faint that it won’t clash with your chosen fragrance.

Al in all, this is a lovely moisturising body wash which comes at a bargain price, and if you’re a lover of mangoes like me, you simply must experience this delicious shower cream, it’s just gorgeous.

    1. I love it too, and I love the little exfoliating bits, although it does take a little longer to rinse off!
