Molton Brown Black Peppercorn Body Wash

Let’s face it: most bleary-eyed mornings, a little extra energy certainly wouldn’t hurt. This body wash from the stately British brand uses Madagascan black pepper oil for an eye-opening, skin-tingling sensation. More than just nature’s wake-up call, the powerful antioxidant also relaxes muscles, boosts circulation, and rids the skin of toxins. One of Molton Brown’s most sought-after products, the aromatic wash recently received a best-in-class Grooming Award from Men’s Health.

Not what I expected
Purchased

I expected this product, which is marketed to men, to be more like a woman's bath product -- foamy enough to shave your legs. It's not. This product smells like a nice clean man and it does make my skin tingle. I just wish it was more foamy.

Too Foo Foo Perfumey
Purchased

I decided to try Molton Brown after sampling some of their Body Wash in a hotel. I went with this Black Peppercorn scent. However, once I got it, the smell was way too perfumey. Unfortunately, I'm returning it. If you like strong scented body washes, then this may be to your liking.

Not what I expected.

The fragrance was a bit too "perfumey" for my taste. I expected something a little more subtle, a little more masculine.

Great smell...but

Not sure of the other benefits. The smell alone is worth a higher price tag (I loved the unisex scent of CK One when I was younger). Not moisturizing, but also doesn't seem to strip my skin like other body washes. Not sure if I'll re-purchase again.

Love the scent but contains SLS

I love the scent, very sexy and yet not overbearing. But this item contains SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). True, most bodywash products contain SLS, but I try to avoid it as it really is bad for you. I've felt less itchy since I stopped using products with SLS.

Smells great

Leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. Doesn't leave any residue or dry out my skin. Great product that I will definitely use again.

Aromatic

Pleasant scent to this shower gel, which doesn't have a squeaky texture after using. Packaging is a little blah though.

Very peppery body wash

With black pepper in the name, you can be certain the pepper aroma will linger on your skin long after you step out of the shower. Certainly awakens the senses.

Strong Fragrance initially
Purchased

Purchased based on reviews. The initial fragrance is a little strong for my tastes. Lathers well, doesn't take a lot of product to lather up.
