Review: Nature’s Gate Herbal Blend Body Wash
This is the second or maybe third product I’ve tried from Nature’s Gate. For some strange reasons, the brand never appealed much to me even though their formulations combine mostly botanical, herbal and floral ingredients. But because of the sale at Guardian, I decided to try their body wash. I almost bought their volumizing shampoo and conditioner as well but placed them right back when I remember I still have a number of shampoos sitting in my shelf, unused.
As I like the smell of lemon verbena, I picked the Nature’s Gate Body Wash with Organic Lemon Verbena and Chamomile Extracts. The smell seems okay when I took a sniff at the store but when applied on my body, it didn’t come across as refreshing as I’ve expected. In fact, I couldn’t smell much of the lemon verbena although it is listed second on the ingredient list. But the body wash does what it promises – it hydrates and nourishes the skin very well. So this is great for dry skin, as well as those who are too lazy to moisturize their skin after a shower.
Chamomile & Lemon Verbena Body Wash S$16.70
This body wash contains mostly natural formulation without SLS, parabens, phthalates and animal by-products. It is truly gentle because I tested the pH level and found it to be 5. While the smell isn’t as refreshing as I like it to be, the product left my skin feeling very nourished. The 354ml bottle cost S$16.70 but you can get a 20% off currently due to GSS promotions at selected Guardian stores that carry the range. I bought mine at the Suntec City outlet. And since we’re on the brand, what products have you tried under Nature’s Gate that you like?
