As advertised it is a body wash, it doesn't take a whole lot to create a useful lather and the smell is pretty intriguing. I like it personally, but I am away in another country so haven't had my wife give the smell check for the female opinion. It seems a little strong and spicy for girls to love it...we'll see.
I will say that the smell stays on your skin after you shower but not overpoweringly so. And the bottle says the peppercorn oil it is made with has "great anti-oxidant qualities"...I don't plan on ingesting it but hey, you'll have that going for you.
