Review: Elemis Body Wash

I am guessing that many of you have heard of the British brand Elemis.  It is a brand that I have admired from a far because of the luxury price tag.  Thanks to my Tesco vouchers I treated myself to Tranquil Touch Creamy Body Wash.  Click here for more information on how I redeemed my Tesco Clubcard Vouchers to purchase this product.  

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Elemis promise their products to be free from parabens, SLS, SLES, DEA, mineral oils, artificial colours, silicones and not tested on animals.

I took a chance on the fragrance as I am someone who opts for fruity smells in the shower.  This body wash has a heavy sensual scent due to the aromatic oils of Patchouli, Cedarwood and Vetivert.  I am surprised how much I have grown to like it. The texture is thick and creamy.  A small amount transforms into a lovely soft lather which is impressive and I did do a double take to check it was SLS free.  I can tell that my skin is benefiting from the almond oil in this product because it feels soft and nourished after showering.  

Sadly, after using for a couple of weeks I noticed skin irritation on my chest and when I stopped using the body wash it disappeared.  This is a common problem for me and often occurs when a product has a strong fragrance.  

Even though this body wash is not suitable for me, I would still recommend treating yourself or a loved one.  It is very luxurious and feels like a mini at home spa treatment.  The one thing I would say is perhaps super sensitive skin types need to be cautious and patch test.  I paid £14.72 for a 300ml bottle of Tranquil Touch Creamy Body Wash, this was a promotional price as the RRP is £18.40
