Happy Friday, all! Hope the week has treated you right and that you’re geared up for a relaxing weekend ahead.
Today, it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you my current favourite body wash, discovered completely by chance.
Hello there, Method Pure Naked Moisturising Body Wash in White Tea with Aloe Vera. I came across this body wash while perusing the aisles of a Cold Storage outlet nearby, picked it up, took a whiff of the scent, and the decision to purchase was basically made for me.
To those of you who are unfamiliar with Method, they are a San Francisco-based company that specialises in clean, safe, green, and natural products for the home. They make just about everything from hand soap to laundry detergent, all housed in simply and stylishly designed, recyclable packaging.
Here’s what the folks at Method say about their body wash:
naked is natural. it’s pure. it’s undisguised. just like our body wash. which is packed with rich moisturizers without containing any dirty stuff, like parabens, phthalates or EDTA. it simply leaves your birthday suit soft, clean and party ready. not to mention delicately scented in a fresh, nature-inspired fragrance.
Does that sound sexy or what?
There are so many things that I adore about this body wash. Firstly, it smells like a little slice of heaven. The white tea scent is soft, non-intrusive, not remotely cloying – just enough to elicit thoughts of floral freshness accompanied by a happy “mmmmmmm”. The scent lingers lightly on the skin after a shower, but not for terribly long.
Secondly, this stuff cleans good and leaves the skin feeling quite wonderful. It gets rid of all traces of sweat and grime with ease, and after a rinse down, my skin feels supple, touchably smooth, moisturised and refreshed. No filmy residue, no difficulties rinsing off, no drama, no fuss.
Thirdly, you don’t really need very much to thoroughly cleanse your whole body. This body wash is not thick or goopy like many other body washes on the market. Instead, this white pearlescent liquid errs on the side of viscous and lathers up surprisingly well for an SLS/SLES-free product. All you really need is a 50 cent sized amount in the palm of your hand or on a loofah/shower puff/washcloth (note: I mean a Singaporean 50 cent sized coin! :)), and it does the job just great.
Fourth, I love that it’s all-natural. No parabens, no PEGs, no harmful chemicals. It’s nice to know that in a small way every day, my skin is being treated to a nice, chemical-free experience.
Pour conclure, Method’s Pure Naked in White Tea and Aloe Vera definitely makes it to my top three favourite body washes list, the other two being Johnson and Johnson’s Top to Toe Baby Wash and St Ives’ Purify Exfoliating Body Wash with sea kelp and mineral salt (review coming soon).
A bottle of 532ml (18 fl oz) Pure Naked retails at a wallet-friendly SGD 8.95. It apparently comes in four variants – Surfside, Magnolia, Olive Leaf and White Tea – but I’ve only seen the White Tea scent. In addition, I’ve only seen this body wash sold at Cold Storage. Hopefully they make it available at Watson’s and Guardian in due time.
PS: A great fun thing about Pure Naked is that when you flip the flip cap open, you are greeted with the following cheeky (but sound) advice – “save water. shower with a friend.” Giggle.
