Whether used as a shower gel or body cleanser, cleanse in the restorative energy of the sea. Skin-conditioning sea nutrients promote skin balance while evening primrose oil enhances moisture retention and glycerin hydrates.
Thymes is a bath, body, and fragrance company whose line of body washes offers more than a dozen scents, both in full and travel sizes. The body wash in the Azur scent, reviewed below, is in the “Green” fragrance family and has hints of citrus.
This body wash comes in a rectangular, clear, plastic bottle that you squeeze to dispense the product from a flip-up cap.
Azur is a light, clean, earthy, almost-herb-y scent with a subtle splash of citrus. It should appeal widely because it isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t linger on the skin after it’s been rinsed off.
The body wash produces a medium amount of lather. It washes off easily and cleanly, which is important for any body wash you use–you don’t want any residue left sitting on the skin when you are done showering.
This product is also full of great ingredients for your skin: Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a gentle cleansing agent, Glycerine is a great skin hydrator, Evening Primrose Oil can help reduce inflammation and acts as an emollient. The list goes on. But the one negative is that the fragrance is high on the ingredients list. As I always say, fragrance (natural or synthetic) is irritating to the skin. On the other hand, most of us expect our body wash to smell like something and want it to have a scent. Luckily, body wash does not stay on the skin for long.
Ease of Use: 9.8/10
A nickle-sized amount of this body wash allows you to wash your whole body. Most importantly, this body wash rinses clean.
For $19.00 you get 9.25 fl oz (270 ml). Body washes from companies like The Body Shop are $8.00 and contain 8.4 fl oz. Higher-end body washes from companies like H2O cost $17.00 and contain 12.5 fl oz, so Thyme’s product is definitely on the more expensive end.
