Vitabath Fragrance Body Wash review

I recently got hold of a bottle of Vitabath In Bloom body wash in Asian Orchid & Coconut with Angelica extract from the Vitabath new fragrance collection. I tend to be pretty picky about body washes and shower gels, but I was surprised at how much I enjoy this one.

I can't stand body washes with those little beads floating around in them. I don't like the kind that smell like perfume. I don't like it when body wash is runny, but I also don't like it when it's so gelatinous that it won't lather. As for the lather, I know that lather doesn't indicate how well a soap cleans, but I still feel like it's not doing anything if it doesn't lather right. But my big thing is the scent. If the scent isn't right, it's all forfeit.

No matter how lovely a scent is, if it's too strong, I will get a headache. It's sad, but it's just the way my body works. So when I got the Vitabath body wash and found out that it was from the new fragrance collection, I was not pleased. I convinced myself to try it out just once and give a half-hearted review about how it kind of smelled nice and then let my mom use it.

Well, I'm glad I didn't give it to her. The Asian Orchid & Coconut smells heavenly, but the scent isn't too strong at all. It gives the shower a nice aroma, and afterwards there's just enough of a scent left on my skin that I can catch whiffs of it during the day. No headaches. And the best part is, the body wash actually made a difference on my skin.

I usually expect body washes to do little more than clean off dirt and sweat and make me smell nice for a while. Commercials can claim that they make skin baby soft all they want, but I've rarely seen it. This time, though, I hopped out of the shower, dried my hair and dressed, and as I was dressing, I felt my arms. They were so soft that I went around the house, finding anyone I could, and telling them, "feel my arms! Now smell them!"

On top of that, Vitabath is sulfate and paraben free. It's got all kinds of cool antioxidants in it, including a├žai, pomegranate, coffee, and green tea, and vitamins A, B3, C, E, and pro-vitamin B5. It's practically a smoothie for your skin.

I'm gonna go back to sniffing my arms. Mm, Asian orchid and coconut....

Full disclosure: I received this product free through Influenster's Vox Box to try and review.
