This is a light, inexpensive product. Not very moisturizing, but not very drying. The hour-glass shaped bottle is easy to grip in the shower. What I like best is the clean, light scent. Reminds me of clean sheets hung in the sun to dry. If you're in a minimalist mood, you might like it.
update-the data base id'ed this product wrong-it should be Ivory Simple Aloe, whitish bottle and wash.
I don't know why I ever stray from this wonderful body wash. It gives me exactly what I want, cleans my skin without stripping it, and leaves me with a lovely light clean scent that I adore. And you can't beat the availability or the price.
Best body wash out there....so cheap, smells wonderful ( I wish I could find a lotion that matched!), readily available, appropriate year round, and won't muck up your shower. I use it with my Buf Puf body sponge and my Salux cloth--excellent exfoliation--and to shave in a pinch. I use the Simply Ivory--I don't care for the other scents--and it is the only body wash I have purchased more than once...numerous times, actually, and used up entirely. I usually buy it on sale and with a coupon, and have never paid more that $3-4 dollars for a huge jug. My only gripe is that they keep changing the bottle, and now it looks weird to me. I liked the old minimalist looking one, but as long as they don't mess with the product inside, I'll put up with it. Edit: I feel like the fragrance has changed....it isn't as clean smelling now that it is in yet another new bottle. The product is called "Original" now, and it has a muskiness to it that lingers and the result is less than shower fresh. I'm returning the two I've purchased, and looking for something new. Dropping it down to three stars....
I think this is my new favorite body wash. Typically I use Kiehls but they discontinued my favorite scent and I ran out of my stockpile so a friend suggested this. It's super cheap (was less than $2 on sale) and a great basic body wash. I got a huge bottle of Kiehls body wash as a gift with purchase so I'm using that now but will buy this again.
A very nice, effective body wash. Doesn't dry out skin, smells very neutral/unisex, suds greatly, bottle looks elegant instread of flashy/flowery. My favorite.
FYI, I have horrid eczematic sensitive skin. No bodywash to date has ever worked for me. The only thing that has worked as a cleanser has been pure olive oil soap bars....But I hate the extra time needed to work up a lather with the washcloth in the shower, so I really want to go bk to liquid bodywashes...if I can...
PROS: Did not make my skin itch in the shower like St Ives Oatmeal one did, left my skin soft for like an hour after showering and no feeling of dryness whatsoever, rinsed clean without a slippery residue feel, unlike St Ives.
CONS: Bodywashes leave my skin dry, and the skin on my legs has a tight feeling and itches like hell after the shower. Unfortunately, after that one hour or so after I showered, that dryness and intense discomfort came back, and the skin on my hands was super dry. So yes this dries out my skin, and the smell is definitely detergent like for the simply ivory scent. *sigh* My search for a non drying bodywash continues. Think I'll try the Summer's Eve as a body wash next.....
I love this body wash.. It has the perfect smell to me too. I like creamy and clean scents in a body wash. Not too heavily perfumed or fake smelling ones at all. This one gets the job done and its decently priced.
I'm over $5-6 body washes from Dove/Olay and their ilk. Unless you're buying something natural like Dr. Bronner's, these products are all basically synthetic moisturizer and sulfate extravaganzas. The only differences are price and scent. I'm not saying people who buy these are stupid, just that the prices are...unjustified.
Anyhow I decided to give Ivory a sniff due to my regular brand revolt. It smelled wonderful at the store and even better at home. If I don't rinse my pouf well enough, it actually leaves a delightful scent in my bathroom. And at $3/24 oz. I at least feel that I'm getting a good deal on my bottle of synthetic moisturizer and sulfate. The large bottle encourages slathering and that means more scent and more bubbles. Win-win!
This body wash is exactly what is says on the packaging- just a little scent, just enough lather. It leaves your skin feeling fresh & clean, never greasy or dried out. Simply a great deal, highly recommend. I used to get mine at Target, but I have not seen it lately. Both the original and aloe scent are light and pleasant.
This is my #1 bodywash! I'm simple w/ bath products and don't like heavy scented drying soaps that are expensive and so not worth it. Simply Ivory original scent comes in a large bottle and retails very cheap! I believe I only paid $3.99 for mine at a local market. If you have sensititve skin and are sensititve to scents, I recommend this. Don't be fooled, this is not a non-scented soap, it does have a subtle floral smell to it but isn't overpowering at all. Ivory lathers up very nicely and rinses well. This is a bodywash for all skin types. It is moisturizing but not the best out there for extremely dry skin. In the dead of winter, I switch to a bodywash w/ shea butter. Lastly, I love that this bodywash doesn't compete with my perfumes. After showering, I can't smell the bodywash on my skin.
