Baxter of California Invigorating Body Wash

We like a good bar soap, but we have to admit that sometimes a shower gel is just better. For one thing, there’s zero risk of slippery soap droppage. And don’t get us started on soap scum. But the real reason to use a liquid over a solid is that gels, like this mild but effective formula from the cult men’s grooming brand, hydrate as they cleanse, rather than stripping your skin of moisture like many bars.

I really like this

The smell is great, almost like semi-citrusy bubblegum, and it's a very light product, similar to their face wash. Overall I think it is good for a "Standard" cleanser. It's not going to exfoliate or do anything crazy is you have any skin issues, but if your skin is in decent shape, this will maintain it well.

Awesome Smell
Sampled

This product had an awesome smell and really lathered well in the shower. I just wish the price was a little less. Seems like most things on Birchbox are typically just above my price range at this point but I'd like to save up my points to get this one.

Good smell, wish it lathered more
Purchased

Really like the smell of this body wash, but I wish it lathered a bit more. I find that I have to use like three pumps on a body pouf to get a decent lather.

Great bodywashes
Sampled

All three of the body washes that came in the March Birchbox smell amazing. They leave your skin feeling refreshed. I plan on buying these when my samples run out.

yay bodywash

This stuff didn't blow my skirt up because after all it's body wash, but there was nothing wrong with it either. All three fragrances were pleasant and it rinsed away clean with no residue.

Light but Noticeable
Sampled

All three samples had nice, subtle fragrances that were unique enough to be noticed throughout the day.

Mediocre
Sampled

To be fair I don't really like shower gel, I really prefer a good bar soap. That being said the scents were good, but the gel just didn't create any lather even with a washcloth. Also I would have preferred one larger sample than the 3 tiny samples. Using something once that is something that you generally use daily is hardly a good way to sample it.

Interesting smell, but great results
Purchased

It has been tough searching for a decent body wash. I'm not a fan of bar soap or overwhelming smells. Baxter of California has a very unique smell. I purchased the Italian Lime/ Pomegranate and it took me a couple washes to get used to the scent, but I love it! The body wash is so refreshing on my skin, doesn't feel harsh and doesn't leave a film. I'm also shocked that I only need a couple pumps on a loofah to soap up my whole body. The bottle is on the small size, but experiment with a small amount when you start using and go from there. A little bit goes a long way!

Scent-ta-licious

I really loved all three of the samples from Baxter that came in my last BOX. It's going to hard to pick just one!

It was ok

This was not one of my favorites in this box. This body wash does not lather very well. I also was not crazy about the scent I tried. The sample size also wasn't really big enough to give it a good try, especially with the lack of lather.
