If you've been following my posts, for a while, you know that our family are big fans of Purex's Dial products. I'm ALSO a big fan of all things coconut. That's why I was especially delighted to receive a bottle of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash to try, for free from the Dial brand, in exchange for a review.
As you can see from the photo, the bottle projects a feeling of simplicity, purity, and a splash of tropical escape. I popped open the cap and took a sniff.
I had been expecting a heavy “suntan lotion” wave of coconut aroma to waft out of the opening. I was wrong. Instead of smelling like something you'd find on a Brazilian sunbather (or Gilligan's Island), this body wash had a fresh, delicate scent. The coconut was barely detectable. It was more of an undertone, setting off the delicate blend of tropical blossoms and sunwarmed mango.
This surprised me. Through the clear bottle, the body wash reminded me of the water one might find in a tropical pool. It was clear, and not as thick-looking as many body washes that I've tried. Usually, I associate a thicker lather with a thicker body wash. I'm also not a fan of floral scents. I was afraid I was going to be disappointed, during this trial.
I tried the product on both a washcloth and a loofah sponge.
As I predicted, I didn't see a huge lather of thick, luxurious suds... although there WAS more of a lather than I had predicted. Instead, the foam was light and delicate, with smaller bubbles.
What REALLY surprised me was the burst of fragrance. NOW, I could detect the fruity blend of mango and coconut. What I had supposed would be a weak, floral “hotel-style” soap turned out to be a tropical escape... a fresh body wash, that evoked all of the images and relaxation of summertime on a tropical beach.
After using the product for ten days, I was already noticing an improvement in my skin. The summer dryness was gone. This body wash truly delivered what it promised... a hydrating, moisturizing body wash, that nourishes and promotes healthy skin.
However, you don't have to take MY word for it. Thanks to Purex, you can win an opportunity to try a free full-sized bottle, for yourself! I will be awarding a free product coupon to THREE, randomly-selected, viewers at noon (EST) on September first!
