You can never have enough body washes, right? At least that's what I told myself when I received this BzzCampaign from BzzAgent.
This is a new product line from Dial. The claim is that they are made with spa-inspired ingredients, and these will leave your skin feeling more moisturized with a natural feeling softness. I received the Petal Soft fragrance, which is Pink Peony and Rose Oil.
Initial Impressions: The first time I used this, I was pleasantly surprised at the floral scent. Straight from the bottle, the scent was really overwhelming to me and I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to use it. But in the shower, on my loofa, it was a whole different experience. The floral tones were lighter, softer, and less overwhelming. The product is thick but not lotiony in appearance (it looks more like a gel, and yes, "lotiony" is a technical term!), and it lathers very well. I actually used too much when I first squeezed it out, because you're just not sure how it works. I liked the way my skin felt immediately post-shower, and didn't feel the need to apply lotion to get that moisture back in my skin. Throughout the day, my skin continued to feel moisturized. The floral scent lingered a little post shower, but within 45 minutes, it was no longer there.
The second day I used this, I wasn't as impressed. But I didn't use as much as I did the day before, because I was really cautious. So I was left wondering if this was a product I would have to use a lot of to get good results.
Final Impressions: With continued use, I have noticed this does make my skin moisturized, and feel moisturized for a long time. But as someone that likes a lingering fragrance (because I really don't wear perfumes), this left very little to be desired. And after use, I noticed it really didn't linger much after a shower. So I could follow up with a lotion if I chose to for the scent, but I didn't really need to for the moisture. I guess I'm used to Bath and Body body washes and lotions, that smell amazing, but you almost need a lotion after your shower because they don't moisturize as well. Plus, finding a lotion to go with this body wash has proved a little difficult, at least with what I currently own.
I would still recommend this, though. It's a reasonable price point, and it does live up to its claims.
