Product Review: Allegra Rhodes Ocean Mist Body Wash

I love shower gels, and I always have as many different body washes as I can fit onto the shelf in my shower, so that I can so I can swap and switch depending on my mood when I shower. So I was very excited when I was asked to trial the *Allegra Rhodes Ocean Mist Body Wash. Here are my thoughts;


What They Say:
"Indulge your senses and treat yourself daily with this sensual body wash. An awakening blend of Fresh Bergamot and zesty Lemon, rounded with a divine Oceanic Scent. Decadently layered with Jasmine, Rose and slinky tones of Sandalwood. Let the heart notes of Violet beat with Thyme to create this invigorating rapture. It will make you smell enchanting and feel revived."

RRP: $29.95 (450ml) – Available from Allegra Rhodes Online

What I Say:
I recently reviewed the Allegra Rhodes Sweet Apple & Grapefruit Hand and Nail Cream, and absolutely love it because of its beautiful fragrance, so I was so excited to also be trialling the Allegra Rhodes Ocean Mist Body Wash.

Allegra Rhodes "believe that happiness and gorgeousness isn’t reserved only for the special occasions or the rich and famous. Every woman deserves to enjoy true luxury every day, at the tip of her fingers".

The Allegra Rhodes products are made using hand-picked Eau de Parfum based fragrances, which makes them smell outright divine. And on top, they are certified parabens-free and sulphate-free. The company is Australian owned, the products made in Australia, and of course not tested on animals! 

The body wash comes in a stylish packaging with a  gorgeous monochrome black and white pattern on the outer box. The box also has pale turquoise sides, which represent this particular scent, while other scents available in the range (Red Lychee, Sweet Apple & Grapefruit and Cherry Blossom) are represented by other colours.

The actual body wash come in a simple but stylish and stylish square bottle, with a black pump. The bottle has simple black product labels, which I really love – ask me, and less is always more, and it makes it look very classy and luxurious.

I also love that the Body Wash comes with a pump (unfortunately that is very rare!), but it just makes it so much easier to use in the shower when you have wet hands, and not to mention, it makes it easier to get just the right amount of body wash needed.

The body wash is white pearlescent, and easily froths up into a nice soft foam – and even more so if a loofah is being used. The scent of the body wash is absolutely amazing, and no doubt coming from among others the zesty Lemon, Jasmine, and Rose extract used. It is fresh and luxurious, and very feminine too (which is a big bonus as then hubby won’t be using it and get it all to myself!!). But in saying that, I do prefer the scent of the Sweet Apple & Grapefruit, as it is simply more zesty and citrusy, which is favourite scent.

But still the Ocean Mist scent smells amazing, and as I use it in the shower it fills my bathroom with the most amazing scent, which lingers for a while, - even later when I return to the bathroom it still smells incredible, just a day spa! This scent also lingers on the skin, even after you’ve dried off after the shower, although nowhere near as strongly scented as the hand cream, but this scent can no doubt be built up to be more long-lasting and also stronger if the matching body lotion is used as well.

In spite of the body wash being perfumed, it doesn’t dry out the skin – rather it is left soft and moisturised, although I still feel I need to follow with a body moisturiser (which I always do, regardless of the body wash I use!)

At $29.95 this is not a cheap body wash, but as it is so luxurious and of such high quality, and you get a 450ml bottle, I find it is well worth the price. It is the perfect treat for when you want to spoil yourself! All in all, another fantastic product from Allegra Rhodes – if you haven’t already tried some of the products, I highly recommend that you do, you won’t be disappointed!
