Sachajuan Spicy Citrus Body Wash


We're pretty picky about our body wash. Too citrus-y, too floral, too sweet, and you can end up smelling like Toddlers & Tiaras star in no time; anything in the "cucumber-melon" family smells sort of like bathroom deodorizer or bad teen memories. Some makes are too milky, some are just too masculine to blend well with everything else you're layering on top of it—whether that be body balm, oils, what have you. The goal is a product that's pleasant, unobtrusive, and you know, pretty without the "pretty little princess" part. That's where Swedish brand Sachajuan (which, admittedly, we are still kind of unsure how to pronounce—Nick keeps calling it "Saskatchewan") and their Spicy Citrus Body Wash comes in. The bottle is perfectly no-frills (and kind of beautiful), showcasing the amethyst-colored liquid, which smells like grapefruit, coriander, and jasmine. And it makes for a good, clean feeling that won't have you leaving the shower awkwardly over-perfumed. Lather on up.

    Sounds lovely! Spicy, citrus scents are my favourite, so I think this would be right up my alley. I recently bougth an Aesop body cream that smells of tangerine rind, vanilla, and sandalwood, which reminds me of the description of this. It's the perfect playful, yet sophisticated scent! :)

    I love Sachajuan - their hair repair is an amazing amazinnnnnggg product. But while I too am picky about my body wash, I'm going to pass on Sachajuan and stick with my longtime favorite, Burt's Bees Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash. It's perfect in the same ways you describe. It's zingy and floral, not at all cloying, fragrant enough for me to smell it in the shower, and subtle enough to disappear on my skin when I towel off. And it's half the price. After you finish your Sachajuan, throw this into the mix.
