Not Soap, Radio Body Wash

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 that’s 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. John’s 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.

Huh?

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.

Smell like the beach

Nice shower gel. Smells like it says... the beach. Fresh clean smell. Texture is a little thicker than I am use to which is nice.

Decent Body Wash

This is a decent body wash. It has a nice, gender-neutral scent, lathers nicely, and leaves me feeling clean. However, I feel the same way about my cheap drugstore body washes that are much less expensive.

Stinks!

The packaging is super cute but I could not get over the scent! It smells like my bathroom cleaner. I had the blue one maybe others smell better

Bathing with sharks! OH MY!
Sampled

What a fun product, love the quirky names. The bathing with sharks had a great sent, nice and fresh without being too strong smelling. Great for men or women. I would love to try the other smells. Seemed to work well without drying out my skin.

Love bathing with sharks

I got bathing with sharks and used it as a body wash. Absolutely love the clean beach smell and how it lathered up well. My skin feels so soft after as well.

A little goes a long way!

This shower gel is very good. Great scent and even better a little goes a long way. I feel as though this lasted me so much longer then other shower gels

Would try again in a different scent

Cute brand and name, and the formula is good, I just didn't like this particular scent.
