As with all the Botanics products that I've used before, this Quenching Body Wash smells absolutely fantastic. I'm a firm believer in the power of scent and this aromatic concoction has certainly livened up a morning in the shower or an evening in the tub after a long, hard day. Arguably, if you want to save money then you may not think that the Botanics range is for you - but as with most things, you get what you pay for and Botanics is definitely worth every penny.
The substance itself is creamy and looks quite a lot like milk. It contains mallow, which is a herbaceous plant which produces disc-shaped fruit, pink or purple flowers and has hairy stems. The mallow extract helps to hydrate the skin, whilst the meadowsweet simultaneously rejuvenates. Meadowsweet is an Eurasian plant of the rose family which sprouts heads of creamy-white sweet-smelling flowers, and it's clear that this is what gives the body wash its milky colouring.
To get the best from the liquid, use with a sponge or puff and rub gently all over the body. The silky-smooth texture feels calming and is great for unwinding at the end of the day. Although pricier than say, a Radox shower gel, I'd almost definitely go for this product as this body wash is comparable to yoghurt, whilst Radox is more similar to washing up liquid! The packaging is more appealing too as it comes with a trigger dispenser which is easy to operate when you're in the bathroom with wet hands. These things may seem small and unimportant, but they all add up to a product that has left me a satisfied customer and one who will be purchasing this body wash again in the future.
Your explanation of what the plant extracts actually are is good - most of the time, the product doesn't mention anything more than the name of them, but here you've got a description of them, which is very interesting.
