So I recently had some empties of bathing products and decided to try some new products. As you may know from former posts of mine I have a very difficult skin, although it may not look like it.
Due to my autoimmunity I have developed several allergies and my skin is usually the first that reacts. So there are often ingredients that may set me off in products.
#1 How it caught my attention
Thats how I came across treacle moon, which first of all is silicone and parabene free. I don`t always react to these two but I found a consistency in reacting more often to products that contain these ingredients. So when I saw that treacle moons body washes were free from those I was very happy and willing to give them a try.
Now another bonus for us animal lovers is that they are absolutely vegan and not animal tested.
And the final bonus was that the price for a 500ml bottle is around 3,50 Euros.
#2 The scent
I bought the bodywash in Apple Pie and Raspberry. Now I must say they smell very intense when you smell at the bottle and it set me a bit off at first. I was a bit afraid of smelling like an apple pie or a raspberry all day. But once you wash yourself with it you notice that the smell isn`t as intense as when you smell at a full bottle of it. I find both scents are very fresh, fruity but fresh and you don`t have to worry about it being too strong.
#3 My skins reaction
Now lets talk about how my skin reacts to this. During winter I have several dry patches that tend to get even drier after taking a bath/shower. I also have several red allergy spots at the moment (I blame these on stress and meds I got while I had my pneumonia at the beginning of the month).
So I use my shower creams usually on a exfoliating sponge so I also used this one with the sponge. I found that an almond sized amound was enough for my whole body. It is amazing that a little bit goes a that long way so I was pretty impressed.
My skin felt very soft right after applying it and even after washing it off and drying myself my skin was hydrated enough so that I didn`t felt like needing a body lotion. So this is great for when you are in a hurry as well. I didn`t had any reactions to it. My dry patches are nearly all gone and I really love how it leaves my skin.
#4 Would I buy it again?
Yes. I would definetly buy these body washes again. I feel they are definetly as good as the bodywash I had from clinique. The only difference is that I can buy for the price of one clinique bottle of bodywash 5 bottles of the treacle moon bodywash. So how great is this?
Have you tried them? - If so what do you think about them?
