Bath time for me is a real treat as it means I get to close the door on the boys and enjoy a soak in the peace and quite, as a result I am always on the look out for new bath foams and body washes. I know this one is described as being a shower sorbet but t also says it is a body wash so I thought I would give it a go. Have used a previous one of these and had great success with it so I had no hesitation in buying this one.
The body wash, as I am going to call it, comes in a plastic tube. It is clear so you can see the rich purple liquid inside, I find this is very handy as I means I can keep track of how much I have left. On the front in big black lettering is the product name and the N-Spa logo. The back of the bottle has the product information, ingredients and direction for use, again in black lettering.
On the base of the tube is a black flip lid and this is where you dispense the body wash from. It is very easy to use one handed if squeezing the body wash onto the other hand. The way it is on the bottom of the tube also means that the wash is always ready to come straight out.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
It is really simple to use the body wash and this can be done in several different ways, the first being the wash squeezed into the hand and then massaged into the body or squeezing the wash onto a flannel or shower puff and then massaged into the body. You can do this either under the shower or whilst lying having a soak in the bath. I have used the body wash all these ways and have found good results from all of them.
When using the body wash and hands then there is a good lather which covers the areas which you have applied this too but when using this on either a shower puff or flannel then you do get a much bigger lather and I find the body wash spreads further over the skin. The liquid is a good consistency and so it does not run all off the hands when being used as I have had happen to me with others in this range. It is not overly thick but still thicker than most.
The body wash smell wonderful and this s noticeable from the minute you open the flip lid. It smells fruity and very much like ripe plums, I am not sure what panna cotta smells like but the over all and strongest smell is definitely the plum. The smell does become stronger when the body wash is lathered up and I am still able to smell this on my skin once I have rinsed the lather off.
When I got out of my bath and dried off I was impressed at how my skin felt and looked. It looked very moisturised and I had no dry areas. I even felt slightly cleaner than I have using other products in the bath. I was also still able to faintly smell the plum fragrance. I noticed my skin felt so much more moisturised for a good few hours after my bath which was a nice bonus.
I have let hubby use this and he has not had any problems with his sensitive skin and he says it is not too feminine for the men to use.
The body wash comes in a tube size of 225ml and for me this last a good few weeks as do now have another 14 products on the go at the same time (yes I do like my n-spa fruits collections!).
There are some warning son the back of he tube which are really just the usual common sense ones and include not eating the product, avoiding contact with eyes and keeping out of reach of children.

~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
The shower sorbet can only currently be bought from Asda, Tesco are increasing their range so may so be available there too. The price in Asda is £2 which I feel to be a good price for such a great product. You can also find this for sale on the N-Spa website, the address is www.nirvanaspa.co.uk
This body wash gets the full 5 stars from me as it smells wonderful, leaves my skin clean, soft and moisturised and I think £2 is such a great price. I do recommend all fans of fruity washes to try this one. Off to try the next new one in this range!
