The first time I flew in a plane was when I was 11 years old. And two and a half decades ago, the airports were small and eating at a airport was a treat! One of my first memories of the airport was this huge plastic tub that had a brownish liquid being churned in it. Yes, these were also seen in the bigger railway stations. On a closer examination, I realised that it was apple juice. As a kid, I pestered my dad till he bought me a glass of it and I settled down to enjoy the juice. Wondering how this is related to the post? Well, if you have tasted that as a kid and you have not forgotten the taste or the fragrance, revive the memories with Puro Body and Soul Apple Body Wash.
Puro Body & Soul – Apple Body Wash
I picked this from Natural Mantra, India’s no 1 Natural and Organic destination. I’d never tried an apple body wash earlier and I was quite curious about how it would be and since it was not very expensive I bought it. I’ve already mentioned what it reminded me of!! You can get the fragrance of sweet apples as soon as you snap open the lid. It is brownish coloured liquid that is a bit runny for a body wash, I like body washes that are a little thicker in consistency. And one thing that did not work for me in this body wash was that it did not lather. I like body washes that lather. Also the fragrance was not long lasting which was a drawback. I have noticed a couple of products from the same brand which I will buy shortly and post the reviews on it. I am referring to the Orange Geranium Body Scrub, Vanilla Peppermint Foot Cream and the Face and Body Cooling gel. If anyone has used this, please share your reviews with me.
How to use: Snap open the lid and pour the desired quantity on the palm and apply over wet body.
Price and Shelf Life: This is priced at Rs. 120 for a 100 ml bottle and has a shelf life of one year from the date of manufacture.
Where can I buy this? : You can buy this at Natural Mantra and Shopo.
Will I recommend this?: I am not a big fan of this, but if you like the apple fragrance, you must give this a try. Also keep in mind that this body wash does not foam much and if you are a lover of fiamy body washes, then you are in for a disappointment.
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Arishtak, Aloe Barbadensis, Tocopherol Acetate, Glycerol.

Dear Pratibha, thank you for the review. As you are aware, all our products are free of harmful chemicals. We do not use synthetic surfactants like SLS, SLES, etc which are low quality ingredients that cause a lot of foam, are thickeners, and resultantly dry your skin. They are commonly used in car & floor washes, and are also known to be carcinogenic. The fact that our body wash does not foam as much as commercial products with synthetic detergents is a testimony to its pureness. A very big misconception amongst people is that lather means cleansing. But they actually have nothing in common.
