I believe this is the last product I have left in my Influenster Spring Beauty VoxBox to talk about. Rather than write a good and proper review, I am going to elect to simply tell a story. It begins in the bath, where most stories do(?!).
This Is Not The Greatest Review In The World:: This Is Just A Tribute
I’m enjoying a nice, hot bath after a long, hard day. I sink in the tub and crack open a not-too-great but good-enough book, flipping through about two chapters before I decide it’s time to get on with it and just get clean. Once my hair is sudsed and conditioned, I reach for my wee bottle of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, pop open the cap, and flip it over my bath pouf. I squeeze the bottle as I would any other, and then, oh my friends, then, there is body wash everywhere.
Dumbfounded, I stare at the globs of soap. What happened? Why is this stuff so runny? Who makes shower gel this bloody runny?? I then salvage what I can with my pouf, and work the gel into a lather. Considering I just dispensed half the bottle, there was quite a lot of lather to work with. I was rather pleased about that, I must admit. However, after finishing with my lower body, the lather was gone! Poof! No more!
What the heck, man. A damn ounce of body wash, and you can’t even get enough lather to last for your entire body? You, sir, are a bad, bad body wash. A bad body wash, indeed.
During all this, I’m not noticing the comforting, soft, oaty fragrance that I expect from Aveeno. In fact, it smells like soap. Just soap. Soap. Which is great if you like a nice, neutral, soapy fragrance, or no fragrance at all. It’s probably a lot better for sensitive skin to have no fragrance. So I stay positive at that moment, thinking of all those unlucky folks who will benefit from this product. Maybe actually enjoy this product. Then I just feel horrible for them, because this body wash is just so bad. If this were the best option I had available to me, I might just skip bathing and opt to keep fleas off by rolling in dust. It works for farm animals.
I hate this product. Hate. It’s too runny, too unexciting, and is failed to deliver a respectable lather. I will say this would probably be a decent choice for individuals with sensitive skin, but I’d just skip this altogether and pick a gentle, moisturizing brand like Dove.
