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
This body wash (which is exactly what it is) was nothing special at all. It smelled OK, it did the job of cleaning me, I guess, but I could list several other brands I'd rather buy. Not too sure what their brand image is meant to be, but I wasn't buying the joke. I though it was meant to be read "Not soap radio" but as I see it listed here "Not soap, radio body wash" I am even more uber confused than I was prior. Body wash should not make you think this hard. There are a lot of beauty products that I am willing to put some good thought behind using, body wash is not one of them.2
Others my say that this is "just like any other body wash..." WRONG! I appreciated the subtlety of the scent that neither overpowered, nor left lingering fragrance on the skin. The snarky, quirky humor made me laugh every time I used the product! "Swimming with Sharks!" I will definitely buy this product soon5
Tried "The Stuff That Cupid Dips His Arrows In" which is a blackberry and vanilla cream scent with ginseng. Great scent and the name made me laugh first thing in the morning during my shower.4
This product had a nice smell. However, I wouldn't really call it body wash. I ended up using the product for a bubble bath. It was nice to give it a try, but I wouldn't purchase on my own.2
I enjoyed using this product, the scent alone had my attention. after using this my body felt extra clean and soft.5
It is great and it has a great quote on the front that I love5
This body wash does leave the skin feeling invigorated and cleansed but I wasn't overly enthused about the "Bathing with Sharks" scent I received in my Birchbox. The scent was too similar to cheap men's cologne.4
It's nice, nothing too incredible about it. The smell is alright, it's smooth and doesn't leave an annoying residue on the skin. I like it, but it doesn't really wow me.3
It is actually quite opposite! It is just soap. There is nothing amazing about this product. I would not buy it!2
