Hello dear people! ❤
I hope you all are doing great! 😀
Have you ever wondered why strawberry is one of the most common and most loved flavours around the world? 😛
Be it toffees, jellies, ice creams, biscuits, fragrances, soaps, body lotions, shower gels or lip balms… Strawberry is one flavour that you are definitely going to find in all the categories, in abundance! 😀
And the reason is pretty simple… 😛
Strawberries don’t just have the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity and a mouth-watering fragrance (that makes them so delicious), but are also loaded with vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, manganese and potassium and are totally free from cholesterol, sodium and fat, which altogether protects the body against heart diseases and cancer, lowers the blood pressure, fights aging of the skin, reduces oiliness and acne, provides protection from UV rays and also brightens up the skin… (Phew!!!) Thus, making strawberries a perfect choice for all good things! ❤
Now you can proudly say that you loveee strawberries, irrespective of your age! 😀
And well, I love them too! ❤❤❤
So, today I am going to review a strawberry body wash that I am absolutely crushing on, these days, because of its yummy fragrance! ❤
Read on to know more about it! 😀

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The body cupid’s wild strawberry shower gel comes in an aesthetically pleasing, cubical, transparent plastic bottle packaging with a pump dispenser (400ml) in golden and black/a golden metallic screw-cap (250ml), on the top! It is also laced with a yellow ribbon bow around the neck of the bottle which makes it look really cute… ❤ The body wash comes in two different sizes and the smaller one (250ml), with a sturdy and leak-proof screw-cap, is totally travel-friendly! ❤
Both the bottles contain all the details about the product mentioned over it…
The body wash has a transparent, bright red colour to it and is in the form of a gel-like liquid with a runny consistency!
And the fragrance… Man, it’s just delicious!!! 😛 The gel smells like a yummy, extremely sweet dessert made out of pure strawberry cream! ❤ The fragrance of the body wash is not very strong but is really rich and lingers until the lather is rinsed off! ❤
The gel lathers really well with a loofah despite the fact that it doesn’t contain any kind of sulphates and a little less than a coin sized amount of it is enough to cover the entire body in a luxurious lather! ❤ The lather cleanses the skin of all the dirt, oil and impurities and leaves it feeling clean and fresh! It also leaves the body a little fragrant but one needs to sniff really hard to smell it… 😛
Now, the body wash claims to provide ‘intense nourishment’ to all the skin types and although it does keep the skin hydrated and nourished for a really long time, I don’t feel that it actually provides any extra moisturisation to the skin… I have a dry skin type which behaves quite normal during the hot and humid days and turns extremely dry during the winters… And this body wash fails to provide enough hydration to my skin during the colder months, leaving it dry and stretchy…
But during the hotter days, it keeps my skin well-nourished and I don’t feel the need to follow it up with a body lotion… ❤
This body wash also doesn’t make the skin feel heavy or greasy, even on the hottest and most humid days and so, in my opinion, this would be a perfect nourishing body wash for oily to normal skin types, throughout the year… While dry to extremely dry skin types may follow it up with a moisturizer during the colder days or whenever they feel the need for it! 😛

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Easily available online on Amazon, Nykaa, Snapdeal and on Buy WOW!
2. Sturdy and gorgeous packaging; comes in two sizes with the smaller one being absolutely travel friendly! ❤
3. Free from parabens and sulphates and contains wild strawberry seed oil along with natural shea butter! ❤
4. Laced with a mild to moderately strong fragrance of deliciously sweet strawberries! ❤
5. Even though it doesn’t contain sulphates, the body wash lathers really well with a loofah and a bit less than a coin-sized amount of it is enough for one use!
6. Cleanses the skin really well of all the dirt, grease and impurities and leaves the skin fresh and supple!
7. Doesn’t dry out the skin at all and instead leaves it hydrated and slightly nourished; oily to normal skinned people wouldn’t feel the need to moisturise the skin after using this body wash, while dry to extremely dry skin types may need a layer of moisturisation, especially during the winter months…
8. Leaves the skin very mildly fragrant after bath, although the smell vanishes within sometime!
1. Quite expensive! 😛
2. Doesn’t provide the drier skin types with ‘intense’ nourishment! 😛
FINAL TAKE: If you are a strawberry lover like me, this body wash is just what you need to jazz up your mood on a rough day! ❤ The perfect blend of delicious fragrance, luxurious lather and hydrating properties makes this body wash a great option for anyone, except maybe for people with an extremely dry skin type, especially during the harsh winters! 😀
Hope it helps! ❤
