I love St. Ives body wash in some of the other scents - coconut is my favorite, closely followed by citrus. I've been looking for a vanilla scented body wash to replace the divinely scented, but discontinued, Cleo body wash, but this is definitely not it.
Since I really like some of the other St. Ives body washes, I expected the vanilla to be just as nice, but it does not smell like vanilla. It smells like horrible synthetic vanilla mixed with burning plastic. It was almost gag worthy. The chemical smell is so off-putting that I can't bring myself to use it again.

I found this a while ago and i've always wanted to buy it. I recently grabbed it the other day and I LOVE it!

St. Ives definitely know what they're doing. It smells so creamy and warm. It just smells like a whole lot of different vanilla and buttery scents. I know everyone loves vanilla and dont get me wrong, I like it aswell but I thought this would be boring and another vanilla smell thats all the same. However, I fell in love using this for the first time its just that nice. You dont need very much of it, and I use it with a loofah, which also makes your product got further aswell. It just smells so creamy and hydrating. It made my skin really soft and the smells stayed on my skin aswell.

I got it from the expensive supermarket here in New Zealand, and it cost me $7.99 which is ridiculous! Normally body washes in other supermarkets (apart from this flash expensive franchise) is about $4 but it was the cheapest one and i knew I liked the smells. So I will be repurchasing just not at that supermarket :)

I live in a dry climate, with hard water, and due to thyroid issues, very dry skin. I bought this because it was way cheaper ($3) than the Olay I usually like (hello economy) and am beyond plesantly surprised. The texture is good, lathers like crazy and actually leaves my skin feeling good! I still need lotion, but I need that with any shower gel so no biggie to me there. Plus, no parabens! For anyone looking for an economical shower cream that moisturizes, this is perfect. Plus, the vanilla smell is light, yet still cozy and yummy. All in all, this is a keeper in the arsenal!

Ugh! The smell of this is overpowering. I am a vanilla addict but this just smelt bad. An overly sickly sweet synthetic vanilla scent. Way too strong, but doesn't linger on the skin thankfully. I expected the formula to be thicker, as it was a triple butter - was expecting something like Dove's triple moisturizing body wash. Thick & luxurious. But it had the same consistency as the St Ives vanilla body wash - a sticky egg yolk feeling. So I was disappointed. It doesn't dry the skin which is good, & there are no parabens which I guess is a bonus. Still, not a fan of this bodywash.

the smell is mild once it's in a loofa and doesn't leave a lingering scent after a shower. it reminded of a cake smell which is why i bought it but i was disappointed it wasn't as strong once out of bottle.

its consistency is great and otherwise is a fine product.

Very good shower gel, creamy and mild, due to the jojoba, shea and cocoa butter. It doesn’t foam like crazy but it gives a subtle velvet lather. I like to use it with my scrub glove because it doesn’t strip my skin too much. I also use it for the face. The scent is kind of sweet but not in a “yummy” way like the Oatmael-Shea but more aromatic. Perfect for winter time or before going to bed.
