Speed Review: Connock London Kukui Oil Comforting Body Wash

Personally, I expect my April showers to be of the pampering variety- being caught in a rainy downpour simply doesn't appeal.
I've been wanting to run this post for a while, ever since my monthly expert interview in March with Amanda Connock. As you can no doubt imagine, I've tried a LOT of shower gels in my time, from natural to budget & high end options but never before have I been wowed by the packaging to the extent I was when I first saw Connock London's Kukui Oil Comforting Body Wash. It is so sleek and combines functionality with a luxurious weightiness- I'd like all my shower gels to be packaged like this.

Connock London Body Wash review

I didn't expect the fragrance to be as floral as it is but that's not to say that I didn't like it. I could also detect fresh, aquatic notes. It definitely feels expensive and I liked that the scent lingered delicately on my skin afterwards.

I'd have preferred this to omit the parabens but that's down to personal choice, although the minimalist packaging would work so well with a stripped back, natural approach that it seems a shame. Although pricey at £22.50, you do get a generous 300ml and I'm all for adding a touch of luxury to something as otherwise mundane as an everyday shower.

It's definitely difficult to remember that Connock London is less than a year old- if they can achieve these high standards in such a short time then this is sure to be a brand to watch.
