I tried a sample of this last night and really liked it. The smell is medicinal ( I prefer a medicinal smell to a 'sexy' smell), so to me it feels likes it's doing more than cleansing with an aroma like that. However, the cheapest I could find this shower gel was about $64 NZD from Strawberrynet and that seems slightly excessive for a shower gel, as nice as it is. At that price, and with no super ingredients to warrant such a price, I'll stick with shower gels from The Body Shop.

The best shower gel ever ! When i use this shower gel everybody says how my skin is soft. Well i don't know why but sometimes it dries my skin. i guess the reason is harsh water.. i buy and buy again this and will buy another one again but it is soooo expensive for a shower gel :(

I brought this thinking that an expensive product developed by dermatoligsts would be full of "quality ingredients" and be kind and gentle to skin. But it seems I was naive. Nice scent but it dried out and itched my skin. Bloody awful performance for a pricey "conditioning" body wash!
Then I checked the ingredients label - its just the same cheap industrial chemicals my dermatologist warned me to avoid, especially the first 2 which was causing my skin eczema:
- SODIUM LAURETH SULPHATE (harsh cleanser and skin irritant)
- LAURAMIDE DEA: (foaming agent, can affect hormones and cell functioning and development)
- TETRASODIUM EDTA (preservative, drives other chemicals deeper into skin and bloodstream)
- METHYLPARABEN (preservative, may cause cancer)
- PROPLYPARABEN (preservative, may cause cancer)
Thats just a few I wont bore you with the rest. Personally I avoid the ingredient Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLS) and the drying itching effect it causes in any product I buy, so this Dermalogica Conditioning body wash is out. But parabens? I don't know, I'm trying to cut down but I feel mixed about it. Around half of what I use has it. Really I just feel like Dermalogica are trying for play me for a fool buy duping me out of good cash for a bargain basement product. The cleansers & preservatives I mentioned above that Dermalogica use are EXACTLY THE SAME ones they use in the cheapest bulk washes & shampoos you can get from the $2 stores, except I paid 50 times the price. Ouch I feel ripped off big time. Next time I want to spend money on serious skincare I'll go to the health store for top quality beauty care from a company that actually does what it says - top quality skincare directly to the customer. Not one that cares more about tricking me with fake-medical talk & packaging.

This is my go to travel body wash, same with the body cream. I have been using it for years in the spa travel size 2.5oz, and forever will. I have a very intense life, and travel a lot, so I want to have my favorite products in small size for travel, but I don't want to sacrifice the quality. So thank God, dermalogica does travel size for all! I have one of these in every travel bag, and also, in my homes as I put them out in the guest bathrooms- the entire spa kit which has the wash, the body cream and body exfoliant , and sure thing, my guests always ask me where they can get them!
I buy the travel kits constantly in bulk- 6 at a time twice a year, so I know I never run out! I've never paid full price for the kits so can't comment on that, but I know I'll never buy them in Australia or Singapore for instance as Dermalogica is very expensive in both countries and I spend 1-3 months in each every year, so when I replenish it's always in the US or in London, where I can get these on sale consistently!

A nice and versatile product that can be used as a body wash or bath foam. No itchy or dry skin even in hot water and lasts forever. Will repurchase.

I don't know what it was about this product, but it made me itch like crazy and dried out my skin. I used it for a few days and my skin felt so tight after using this....it was a horrible experience. I had blotches and hives all over me after I used it a few times (less than a week).
I had a big bottle of it and gave it to my MIL because it has a lovely scent. This also did the same thing to her. I think I'm going to chalk our experiences up as an allergic reaction.
Yes, I did like it had a pump and it smelled nice and natural...I wish it would have worked...but wasn't for me. I would not recommend this product based off of my experience with it. I love Dermalogica, but this isn't for me or my MIL. No, I would not repurchase. It was one expensive mess.
If you decide to give this product a try, I hope you like it more than I did.
My friend loves it, and even bathes her dog in it. Maybe it's for you?
I would recommend PTR Botanical Buffing Beads body wash.

pretty good product, much better than the body creams. kept me from breaking out occasionally on my body so thats good :) and it lasts for so, so long. just one pump can clean ur whole body. just thats it is so expensive its not even funny, gosh. and i live in singapore, its like 90 bucks here.... i know, what the hell. oh and it has parabens.... so that kinda sucks. smell is nothing to rave about either but its okay, u get used to it.
So all in all, i would recommend it cuz at the end of the day, it kept me clear and (mostly) soft and thats all that matters ;)

Very herbal smelling but I dont mind it so much that I would stop using it. I had started getting some BACNE, so my esthetician gave me a sample bottle of this and its awesome! she also gave me the body scrubbing towel and combined-my bacne is goneeee! I like the pump and the natural ingredients (lavendar, sage, etc), but 1 lippie off for the slightly medicinal smell-not sexy!

Best body wash. Lovely smell, invigorating in the shower. Just the right amount pumps out to wash my entire body. Also my skin is not dry when I finish showering, because there are some oils from the wash.

This is the best body wash that I have ever used. I love the smell and it makes my skin nice and soft. It is a little pricey for body wash, but it's definitely worth every penny!

I regularly use this and it does not dry out skin, smells great and is unisex so dont need too many more bottles in shower!
You can also use it as a bubble bath, but the bubbles arent as good as others.
I buy the 437ml with a pump and used every day lasts about 7 weeks. I know i use too much of it, as one pump can do your whole body.

I use this religiously every morning. It is the perfect wake up shower gel. Soothing and calming, the scent is lovely; and even better if used in the bath! It leaves your skin feeling soft and silky. The bottle is huuuuuge and mine, while used every day, is still going about 6 months after purchase! It is well worth the money!! It is even better when used with the hydro active mineral salts; all over body exfoliation leaves your skin feeling out of this world!

Bought this because of all the raves here. Certainly a quality product, doesn't dry up my skin and lathers up nicley, but the scent is just too darn strong for my taste. I find the scent almost manly. I SO wanted to like this product, but unfortunately I didn't.

This has to be the best smelling body wash ever. It is truly a delightful experience to use it every tme. The smell is out of this world natural!

Just got this product and I am already hooked. First of all, I love the scent - very lavander-y, but in a very gender-neutral way (great tip: keep a bottle in your guest bathroom that will please guests of both sexes). Since it is a soap-free product it is non-drying and good for the skin; I've even used it as a face wash with great results. It is a bit pricey, but I think this is a case of really getting what you pay for.

I love this so much, I wish it were cheaper. It really is one of the very few natural extracts-based products. It's sooo gentle on skin and just using it every day is a spa experience. When I find it on EBay, I buy it.

Made my skin soft and smells amazing. Scent lasts faintly for hours. Way better than bar soaps. I have hard water and sensitive, dry skin and this does wonders for it. You only need a small amount, too, so it lasts a LONG time. Great also to use with the exfoliating cloth.

Our family loves this product.

Only body wash that made my skin noticeably softer. It makes it super soft without any body lotion! I love it!!!! The best body wash I've found - and I've tried a lot of high-end brands and a few drugstore ones as well.

This cleanser smells wonderful! It works great with my dry skin because it contains no soap.
