I've found that although this is a very cost effective organic and natural range, I have had issues with every product I have bought from it. This body wash smells great and contains no nasties but it irritated my lady bits no end. It is working well now as a morning face wash in the shower to get off night treatments but I will not repurchase.
This is very mild cleanser. Its a gel like consistency, does not foam much but cleanses well leaving a smooth feeling after rinsing. Its extremely gentle and doesn't irritate or dry my skin.
I love that this is cruelty free and does not contain harsh and bad ingredients. However it keeps leaking product from the neck of the pump and I'd end up with a sticky puddle at its base.
Those that prefer foamy cleansers will not like this.
I have been using this lovely body wash instead of soap now for 6 months and love it! The product goes a long way and comes in a convenient package with a pump top. The xlarge bottles are only AUD$19.95 here in Australia which is beyond reasonable still I usually purchase the smaller size for AUD$12.95 simply because it fits conveniently in my shower rack. The packaging is recyclable and dark so the essential oils are well protected. I use this with a micro-fibre cloth, after showering for a few minutes to warm up my skin I turn the water off and buff away in circular motions from my ankles all the way up to my neck and finish lastly with my underarms, girly bits and feet...lol. The smell is wonderful and reminds me of an Aesop tangerine and vanilla hand cream I used years ago, a totally deluxe scent that fades somewhat on the skin so it is not going to overwhelm or clash with perfume that you might apply. I really prefer this to soap as it is nourishing, natural and ecologically sound and a great price. I finish with Sukin body lotion applied on damp skin.
I would totally buy this product again, ever since I washed my body with this, I don't get rashes anymore when I shower (my skin is very sensitive to chemical product). At first I was a bit iffy about the herby smell as i am not used to it, but it grows on me anyways and I now love it!
Going to purchase more of their shower products like the shampoo and the lotion once mine runs out.
My favourite body cleanser. Smells beautiful. Cleanses the body without drying it out. It is not harsh at all, and because of that you do need to exfoliate your body more so than you need to with harsher cleansers. When using this, I do not need to use any body moisturiser. It keeps my skin pefectly balanced and I also use it on my kiddies. Love it - my favourite for a while now xx
Update: I dropped this product over a year ago because it was getting wayy too harsh for my sensitive skin, likely due to the essential oils and herbal extracts. In the end, I'd little choice but to go back to Ego QV Gentle Wash.
Very awesome brand! Because my place is absolutely dusty, I have problems finding an economical body wash that cleanses my ultra-sensitive(meaning: delicate) skin well.This cleanses and foams well, without leaving my skin extremely dry. There is no stinging sensation too. I started using this body wash about 2 to 3 months ago and so far, my skin is in quite good condition.
Also, it's somewhat scented. And I admit to not liking the smell at first but now I find it marvellous: sweet and tingling on your senses.
The bottle, btw, is made of dark plastic and there is a plastic pump. Well, I approve! The tinting protects the gel from light which could degrade the effectiveness of the product. The pump is solid too and has never once failed on me.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.
This is a pillar of my skincare products.
It doesn't irritate and doesn't strip natural oils.
The gorgeous smell reminds me of southern lemonade - citrusy with a hint of vanilla. Yum! And the price, for a product made with natural ingredients, is so affordable (~$12 AUD 500mL/16.9 fl.oz pump bottle).

I have re-purchased this a couple of times, these days I buy in 1ltr refill pack. I great natural body cleanser, doesn't dry skin out, made without SLS, parabens etc. In-expensive, long lasting. If you like plenty of foam/bubble don't expect it, also tip use in bath as bubble bath.
