Speed Review: REN Seaweed and Sage Body Wash

I love REN body washes and whilst they're undeniably at the pricer end of the scale, I really enjoy having them in my shower to make the everyday routine that little bit more indulgent.

I've recently been using REN Seaweed and Sage Body Wash, which is packaged as a plastic bottle presented in an outer box. The box goes some way to adding to the sense of luxury and adds the element of a gifting item but I don't think it's necessarily required, especially when you consider the eco credentials of the brand. That said, I really liked the bottle packaging. It's simple and minimalist which I feel is in keeping with both the brand message and other products from REN, making it easily recognisable. The simplicity reflects the clean skincare philosophy and I was happy to have it on display in my bathroom. The transparent bottle has a clever plastic bag element inside which ensures there is no wastage, although it does make it a little harder to tell how much of the product is remaining. I appreciated the functionality of the pump dispenser which is convenient and avoids wastage.

REN Seaweed and Sage Body Wash has a jelly like texture that felt silky and soft on my skin. REN describe it as "a stimulating and reviving body wash formulated with toning seaweed extract and and invigorating blend of essential oils". Whilst I can't comment on the toning claims, I found the scent to be luxurious and botanical. During use, it was clear that the product is based on high quality, natural ingredients.

REN Seaweed and Sage Body Wash produced a generous lather despite being free from SLS. I couldn't detect the scent on my skin following use (no great problem as it meant that it didn't interfere with any perfume I wanted to wear) but my skin was left feeling clean but not stripped or dry.

At £17 for 200ml, I can only reiterate my earlier comments that this is a pricey shower gel. That said, I really enjoyed using it and would recommend as a special treat.
