whish body products review

you have heard that a little information is a dangerous thing.  my problem is that i have only a little information about chemicals and ingredients in lotions and soaps that are supposedly very, very bad for you and for children in particular.  this is enough to make me nervous every time i bathe myself or my kids.  with this in mind, i have been trying to find ways and opportunities to try out natural products that will do the job efficiently and effectively.

as a result, i was happy to have a chance to try out the whish line of body products.  whish has three scents:  pomegranate, lemongrass and almond.  for each scent, you can find a product to help you wash, exfoliate, moisturize and perfect, all with natural ingredients.  their products are paraben free, sulfate free, TEA and DEA free and petrochemical free.  instead they use ingredients like organic sugar cane, organic beeswax, brown sugar, organic aloe, organic shea butter, glycerin and vitamin e.

i received the pomegranate sugar scrub to sample.  it is very thick, so a little bit goes a long way (which is good since it costs $38 for 12 oz.).  i used it to scrub off all the summer sweat and grime after a day with the kids.  i noticed that my skin felt softer and smoother after i rinsed off.  when i used it to scrub my feet (which needed a good deal of scrubbing), my feet felt so smooth i could hardly keep from slipping around in the shower.

after drying, i used a little bit of the pomegranate shave savour hair inhibiting gel.  i only received a tiny sample of this so i can't really speak to its hair inhibiting qualities but my legs definitely feel smooth for now.  i am already so tired of keeping my legs clean shaven for the summer that i'm hoping this will buy me an extra day or two, at least.  however, at $26 for 7.4 oz. i would like to be more sure that this moisturizing gel really will inhibit my hair growth.

if i were going to buy one of the whish line of body products, i would like to try the body butter for the kids.  lilianna in particular has such dry skin that easily turns rashy.  i have been trying to find something natural to help her skin condition.  for myself, i would like to try the hair inhibiting gel, although i would probably try a different scent. i really did not like the pomegranate scent at all. it smells like a product that is "all natural" but it isn't a scent that i enjoyed.  i do appreciate the fact that i feel safer using these products, knowing they are made with natural ingredients.

this is a mamabuzz review. i received a 3 oz. sample of the pomegranate sugar scrub and a small trial size of the shave savour hair inhibiting gel and the body wash from whish. the opinions expressed here are purely my own.
