Speed Review: Waitrose Organic Reviving Body Wash

I like to use an energising shower gel in the mornings and recently picked up Waitrose Organic Reviving Body Wash along with my groceries. It contains more than 70% organic ingredients and has been certified by the Soil Association.

The plastic packaging is unassuming but not offensive. I'd have preferred if it was transparent to enable me to see how much product was remaining. It has a functional flip top dispenser.

The body wash itself had a lightweight cream texture. I found it to be a very liquid formula which was difficult to work with without there being some wastage. As it's free from SLS, it didn't produce much of a lather at all, however, I didn't mind this as I tend to find SLS containing shower gels to be drying on my skin. I'd recommend using this with a bath puff to make the product last longer and to boost the lather.

Waitrose Organic Reviving Body Wash contains organic sweet orange and ginger oils and these ingredients are evident in the scent, which is uplifting and slightly spicy. The scent didn't linger on my skin following use and I was pleased to note that my skin wasn't left feeling tight, dry or stripped.

I felt that I went through this too quickly to justify a repurchase at approx. £4 for 200ml. Whilst it's certainly not expensive, I didn't feel that it offered value for money. However, if it were on special offer, I might consider picking up another bottle.
