On a recent shopping trip, well an excuse to get out of the house and have some time off from the boys! I found another new body wash and shower sorbet so I decided I just had to try it and add it to my collection. As with the other ones I have tried this was excellent and ticked all the boxes.
The shower sorbet or body wash comes is a plastic tube, this is clear so you can see the orange coloured liquid inside and handy so you know just how much you have left. There is thick black writing on the front with the product name and the N-spa logo. The back of the tube has all of the product information and directions for use.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
It is very simple to use this body wash. You can either squeeze it onto your hands and massage into your body or use it on a flannel or shower puff. It depends on how you use it to the amount of lather you get. There is more lather therefore the body wash goes further when using on a shower puff ad I find this helps to get more of the fragrance as well.
The body wash is very easy to get out of the tube as there s a black flip lid on the bottom, placing it on the bottom is a good design as it means it is always there ready to dispense and you don’t have to wait ages for it to run down the tube and come out. It is easy to use with one hand of you are squeezing it into the other hand as the lid does need closing between uses otherwise it will run out.
The smell is apparent when you open the lid and it is lovely. I am instantly reminded of fresh and ripe tangerines and for some reason this reminds me of Christmas as this is the only time I really eat them. It is not overly strong but there is enough scent to get it notice and entice you to buy it. The smell does intensify when it is being used and as I said before the smell is stronger with the more lather you make. Once I have covered my body and then rinsed the wash off I was still able to smell the body wash and it was very pleasant. Once fully dried off the fragrance is still noticeable and it is not overly strong to make this only appeal to the female market.
My skin after use was lovely soft and looked very moisturised. I have not suffered from any drying of the skin from using it and hubby has not had any reaction with his sensitive skin.
The body wash is of a good consistency, I was expecting it to be thick but it is actually quite runny and if you are not careful or squeeze too mush into your hand then it will run off. I have noticed that when this happened when I first started using the body wash I was left with a small amount of orange residue in the bottom of the bath after use but this was very easy to wipe away and did not stain.
The body wash or shower sorbet comes in a good sized tube which is 225ml. This for me lasts for ages as I have a large number of other shower and bath gels on the go at the same time. I would say that with almost daily use then this would last for about 3 weeks.
The product has been made in the UK and the packaging is fully recyclable, it has not been tested on animals and once opened it has a shelf life of 24 months.

~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
I bought my body wash from Asda and it was priced at £2. Tesco are currently expanding their N-Spa range but they don’t currently stock this one. I felt the price tag was excellent considering the results this gives and the amount of time the tube lasts.
I am giving this product the full 5 stars despite being a little too runny. It smells wonderful and the smell lasts and the cleansing and moisturised feeling it gives is great. I recommend you all try this for the low price tag.
