Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Bath & Shower Gel : Best smelling body wash you’ll ever use

If you like the smell of lavender and don’t have sensitive skin, this stuff will work. I bought this thinking it would be a bit more gentle than most soaps and lotions i’ve tried, but it wasn’t. I have small patches of eczema that aren’t too bad and my skin is not sensitive to the point of breaking out in a rash or anything, but my skin definitely became tight, dry, and irritated after using only a small amount. As far as body wash goes, it does the job. My mom actually likes it, but i will not be purchasing it again.

Does not lather as well as i’d like it to so i have to use a ton of it. Great ingredients, appears to be a green product. May use again, but my search will continue to find something that lathers well in addition to having a great sales model, sustainable and clean ingredients. This did not dry my skin out, so that was nice.

I ordered twice & both times it leaked badly. Wished they would change the lid so it wouldn’t leak. I’m struggling because i want to order again but i’m afraid of losing precious ounces of liquid.I might try to order one last time.

Best smelling body wash i’ve used — and that’s after 20+ years of using every body wash under the sun. I love all the healthy living attributes this product uses (or in this case, also doesn’t use), which makes it pricey, but in my eyes, worth it. It lathers well (which most sulfate-free products have a hard time doing), and also rinses clean. I haven’t really noticed a lingering lavender scent much longer after i shower, it goes away in about an hour or so, but if you shower every day you can smell like lavender for an hour a day. Will definitely order again.

Avalon organics have wonderful products that don’t irritate my skin. However, there was a problem the last time i ordered this bath & shower gel in july 2017 — they sent me alba product instead of avalon. I am hoping they have this labeling problem corrected because i plan on purchasing more avalon organics bath and shower gel.

It smells and feels wonderful. Unlike other soaps, it doesn’t feel like it leaves residue on my skin. It also removes grease without making me feel like i’ve rinsed myself with a harsh chemical. After washing, my skin feels clean, light, and gives off a slight lavender smell. Another reviewer wrote that it’s dangerous to use the peppermint flavor around your privates – i can tell you that is not the case for the lavender. My only qualm with this soap is that you have to use a lot of it to get it all over your body, because it doesn’t really foam much. That’s why i buy it in this huge bottle. I read another review that said this was because it doesn’t contain a lot of unhealthy foaming agents that other soaps use, so i suppose it’s unavoidable. I’m considering getting some kind of sponge to see if that helps.

I love avalon products and this is no different. I was disappointed because the lid had come loose and some of the shampoo had escaped and was a mess to have to clean up. I kept it because i love the product and didn’t want the hassle of trying to send it back. The same thing happened with the avalon lotion ordered at the same time but the pump had come up and lid was loose. Thank goodness it was in plastic bag because lotion was everywhere and a real mess to clean up. Of shampoo and 2 oz of lotion.

This is my favorite body wash ever hands down. I used to have their lotion in lavender and loved it. So i was so happy to find this stuff. Avalon organics lavender is so potent and has that real lavender smell. This body wash is practically half essential oils, it cleans my skin but never leaves it feeling stripped. I’ve tried other body washes, like kiss my face, while smelling good it dried my skin out and left a residue feeling on my skin. It smells amazing and it’s all natural essential oils not synthetic fragrance or anything. It’s an aromatherapy experience every time you use it and it will leave your skin feeling super soft.

Wonderful scent, lathers nicely and a little bit will do the job so it lasts a long time. A friend recommended this to me and it’s one of the best recommendations she has made. The scent did not stay with me but the bathroom smelled wonderful.

I like the lavender-scented soap. I am using this product as i am sensitive to other soaps and this one has worked well for me. My only issue is with the shipping. The pump head was broken off on one bottle and both bottles leaked into their plastic bags. I will return to purchasing this product through vitacost for a tiny bit more $, but bottles were well protected from breakage and leaking.

It’s hard to find organic body soap like this, especially nsf certified ones. This stuff lasts a long time. My wife and i only buy one every 3 months or so. If you put in right in your hand it will take like 3-4x the amount of soap to cover your body. However, if you use a loofa or sea sponge, you only need two pumps for your whole body.

It’s a nice big size bottle for the price. I have not broken out, i seem to have become sensitive to a lot of soaps, and was paying $13 to $20 for 3 bars of natural soap at whole foods. So this is working pretty good so far and it will last a lot longer. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because of the texture. I guess i expected it to be thicker like hand soap or other body washes. However my skin is doing great with this product.

Loveeee that aloe vera juice is so high up on the ingredients list.
