Hello Lovely Ladies! 🙂 🙂 🙂
What’s up with you’ll? ❤
Today I am going to talk about a body wash from Lux, a brand whose soaps were a staple in my, and I guess most of our houses a decade back.. ❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Velvet Touch body wash from Lux comes in a white and buff coloured plastic bottle with a golden cap. The cap has a push mechanism on one side which makes the other side that contains the hole, pop up.. Since there is no lock system, the hole might pop up under pressure and cause leakage, so I won’t be recommending it for travel purposes! 🙁
The bottle is itself enclosed in a cardboard box with the same theme of colours, along with a golden brown coloured loofah..
The loofah is of a good quality but its binding is pretty weak and in my case, the loofah got unbounded within a week of use and I had to tie it up again! 😛
The body wash is translucent white in colour and slightly shimmers under the light.. It has a runny consistency and produces a large amount of lather( Due to the SLS present! 🙁 )..
A little less than a coin sized amount is enough to cover the whole body in lather! ❤
But the best thing about this body wash is its heavenly fragrance.. ❤ It has a moderately strong, sweet floral fragrance that just makes the whole shower smell divine and a mild smell stays on the body for hours after the bath! The smells gradually vanishes from the uncovered parts of the body but remains unaltered under the clothes and you can clearly smell it even after 10-12 hours! 😀
The body wash even lathers well without a loofah, but with one it lathers much better! ❤
It cleanses the body effectively and removes every trace of oil, dirt and grime without stripping it off its moisture! ❤
This body wash never made my dry body skin, that turns normal to dry during Summers and Monsoon, feel dry or stretchy after bath.. But it doesn’t provide any sort of hydration or Moisturisation (As claimed) either! 🙁
So, I guess this won’t work well with normal to dry and severely dry skinned beauties during the colder months!
Now, talking of its claims of making the skin silky soft.. It definitely makes the skin quite smooth with regular use but I haven’t noticed any softening of my skin! 🙁
For me, this is a great body wash for the price at which it is offered and I am totally in love with its fragrance! 🙂

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and easily available. Buy it from here and here!
2. Heavenly fragrance that lingers for long!
3. Cleanses the body effectively.
4. Doesn’t strip the skin off its moisture.
5. Smoothens the skin quite a bit with regular use.
1. Not at all travel friendly as lock system is absent in the cap!
2. Doesn’t stand true to its “Moisturising” claims.
3. Won’t suit normal to dry skin during winter months!
FINAL TAKE: The Velvet touch body wash is a pretty good body wash that cleanses well without drying out the skin but fails to provide any sort of Moisturisation to the dry skin.. It also smells divine and the fragrance lingers for hours after the shower! ❤❤❤
Hope It Helps ❤
