There are times that all a girl wants is a reliable, inexpensive, does-the-job product for everyday use. For me, that product is absolutely a good shower gel or body wash – and I think I may have found a HG product here.
Ladies, je vous presente Johnson & Johnson’s pH 5.5 Nourishing Body Wash with Almond Oil.
There are myriad of reasons why I love this product. Here they are in no particular order:
Formulation: As most of you may already know, healthy skin is naturally slightly acidic in pH. Most soaps are either neutral (pH 7) or alkaline (generally, the more slippery the soap is, the more alkaline it is). I don’t really like highly alkaline body washes because they leave my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. I like that this body wash’s pH 5.5 formulation works well at cleansing skin thoroughly while leaving it feeling conditioned and ultra-soft afterward. Clean skin doesn’t have to come hand in hand with abrasive products, ladies!
Scent: This is one of the main reasons I initially purchased this variant over their 2 in 1 and honey versions. I love the fresh, nutty, sweet scent of almond oil, and it is ever-present in this body wash. The scent also lingers lightly on the skin after showering, which is a lovely little bonus.
Performance: I use one pump with my old faithful Body Shop bath gloves (rave review to come!) and it’s more than enough for a good, thorough scrub-down. It lathers up quite well, but not excessively considering it contains sodium laureth sulfate. My skin always feels exceptionally smooth and nourished after using this body wash, probably thanks to the body wash formulation being soap-free and therefore non-drying, and also due to the almond oil content, which helps retain skin’s moisture.
Price: This is perhaps the best value body wash I have ever used. At only SGD 5.75 for a 750ml pump bottle, this stuff goes a very long way. I have been using mine for a month and looking at the bottle, I think I might have at least another 6 months’ worth left to power through! And this is very, very good news for my skin and my wallet both :)
Pour conclure, I am exceedingly happy with this recent discovery. This body wash is going to become one of my lifelong, faithful bathtime companions – and all this from a brand that we’ve all been using since we were babies. If you’re looking for a body wash that performs consistently and doesn’t cost a fortune, look no further!
