In the ever-expanding world of beauty products, soap can sometimes get the short shrift—until you happen upon a collection like this one. Sure, it'll get you clean, but these aromatherapeutic formulas also aim to address the most pressing of your first-world problems—with a snarky sense of humor and seriously delicious scents. Each scent takes aim at a specific frustration, from dieting to work to relationships. Bubbles, Not Carbs has a citrus scent thats said to fend off cravings and horse chestnut extract to tone and firm skin; Awash in a Field of Four-Leaf Clover is a fresh fragrance with actual four-leaf clover extract from Ireland and green tea to tone and calm; The Phoenix harnesses spirit-lifting bergamot and smells of persimmon plum; and beach-scented Bathing with Sharks helps energize with royal jelly extract. Liquid Freud is coconut milk- and mango-scented with calming St. Johns Wort; To Sleep Full of Sweet Dreams is a stress-reducing lavender fragrance with relaxing chamomile; The Stuff That Cupid Dips His Arrows In is a blackberry and vanilla cream scent with ginseng, which is said to kick up pheromones; and the exclusive-to-Birchbox Joy Inducing smells of lemon sugar. All are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and are never tested on animals.
This product was super confusing. Birchbox lists it as a body wash, but the packaging suggests using it as bubble bath or a body wash. I tried to use it as a body wash, but it did not lather. Not at all. It would take the whole sample bottle for me to feel like I was clean. The bottle (and brand name, really) were so vague I wondered if I was supposed to even be trying to wash myself with this stuff.1
So I don't know about any pheromones getting kicked up but what I can say is that it smelled great and scent lasted unlike other body washes4
I got the "swimming with sharks" scent... It didn't smell that great, a little bit minty and vaguely hotel-shampoo smelling. As another reviewer pointed out, it's listed as a body wash but then suggests bubble bath? And it wasn't a very good body wash. I gave up and just used my normal body wash afterward. Very odd product.1
I got the "bathing with sharks..." sample and was looking forward to using it because I usually love things scented like the ocean. Well, this didn't smell like the ocean or anything like it and truthfully, I'm not sure what it smelled like because I have never smelled anything like it, which in this case, was not that good. I didn't particularly like the smell, but it cleaned well, so I might try the other scents in the future to see if I can find a smell that I liked better. Not sure how well it works in the bath because I only used my sample in the shower.3
This had a nice smell and felt nice on my skin. But I tend to be more of a soap person when I shower.3
It smelled nice! I got the stuff cupid dips his arrows in- not sure if it actually succeeded in"kicking up pheromones" but the scent was appealing and the packing was cute.4
Love the bubble baths and this a fabulous product. I have gotten this in multiple scents and love everyone of them!
The bubbles last and so does the scent!
So I sampled the Cupid scent and loved it but that was sold out when I went to buy this, so I got the Freud scent... Just as yummy but a bit cleaner, normally I use a men's sport soap because most girly smells leave a bit of a film and waiting tables outside in Texas... Let's just say I want to stay not sticky as long as I can- this is the first body wash I have found that gives me a bit of moisture with all the clean feeling and girly smell.5
This product smells amazing! I loved that the smell wasn't to strong but you can still smell it and it left your skin feelin amazing!4
As soon as I opened this I loved the smell. My 7 year old son loved that it said "bathing with sharks", so I had to let him try. He also loved the smell as well as my husband. It's scent is very fresh and clean.5
