Nourish Almond Vanilla Body Wash

I've got yet another body wash to talk about, and this time, it's an old favorite.  I love Nourish's body washes and as natural liquid soaps go, they're also pretty unique.  The actual soap element is castile-based, made from organic oils and potassium hydroxide, but Nourish also incorporates shea butter, coconut milk, and other nourishing (hah!) ingredients to create a luxurious, creamy body wash that's not drying in the slightest.  They're also USDA certified organic and lather easily, either on a loofah or just your hands.

Unfortunately, certain Nourish scents seemed to have disappeared in Canada, and as I mentioned in my May empties, when I finished a bottle of the fresh fig body wash, I've been having trouble tracking down the almond vanilla.  Nourish happened upon that post and offered to send me a bottle to review.  After trying it, all I have to say is that this scent needs to make its way back to Canada ASAP.

The almond vanilla smells divine and is the perfect mix of the two fragrances.  I've heard the scent described as predominantly vanilla, but to me, the almond is definitely very present too.  I have an amazing recipe for plum torte that uses almond extract and Nourish's body wash smells exactly like the batter.  And, while the scent is noticeable, it's never overpowering.  It lingers on your skin a little throughout the day, but not enough that it would interfere with any other scents  you may choose to wear.  Nourish also has other vanilla almond products you can layer, if you want to enhance the fragrance.  It's a scent I can't imagine getting sick of, and as expected, the body wash itself is just as lovely as all the other variations I've used.

Let's summarize: smells like you're showering in cake batter, lathers easily, and is highly moisturizing.  I'm quick to recommend any of Nourish's body washes, but if you enjoy sweet, decadent, foodie scents, it's definitely worth the extra effort of tracking down the almond vanilla.  

Where to Buy: $9.99 from Nourish

    1. Same here! The Big C used to stock all the scents too, which makes it extra frustrating. I've bought Nourish on Vitacost too, but they also don't seem to stock the almond vanilla body wash. I just don't understand it, lol:)

  3. This body wash sounds wonderful and $9.99 is a great price! Do you like to get Nourish products mostly at stores in Canada (I live in the U.S.)or do you like to order online sometimes as well?

    Thanks and great post :)

    1. Yeah, I love how affordable all of Nourish's products are! I'm open to either, but it's always nice to know you can buy something in person, in case you run out unexpectedly or something. I've also ordered their stuff from Vitacost before:)

  8. I use to use this and actually loved it, but my boyfriend thought it was stinky so it had to go. I really love most of the products from Nourish!

    1. I hate that, when you love a scent and they don't! Perfectly understandable though :) I'm a big fan of Nourish's products too.
