The body wash itself is a gentle, castile-based soap made with organic coconut, olive, and jojoba oils. It lathers well - even more so on a loofah or konjac sponge - and rinses clean. It never leaves my skin feeling dry, tight, or irritated.
Why is it a summer only product for me? Three words: the peppermint tingle. I first tried this baby in the dead of winter, and boy did I freeze! The body wash leaves your skin feeling slightly cool when you first rinse it off, but it's when I'm toweling off that I really feel it. In the winter - even in my reasonably warm house - it felt like torture by peppermint oil, but since the weather's warmed up, it's actually pretty refreshing. It's also perfect for cooling off after a hot, sweaty workout.
The Bottom Line
A great body wash for summer or post-workout, but I'll be opting for another scent come fall/winter. Not for the peppermint faint of heart!
