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?
Sampled

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.

nice

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 washes

I don't get it
Sampled

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.

Bathing with sharks sample
Sampled

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.

Lovely

This had a nice smell and felt nice on my skin. But I tend to be more of a soap person when I shower.

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.

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!

Yummy

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.

Bathing with Sharks!

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.
