When I was browsing through the product list of Soul Tree, I came across a very interesting product – The Rose and Vetiver Body Wash. This was a combination I had never come across and I decided to give it a try. Vetiver is Khus in Hindi. Rose and Khus have individual and really strong fragrances. You can either like it or hate it.
Vetiver – Known as Ushira in Sanskrit, it is a Pitta pacifying herb. It cools, removes excess heat from the body and refreshes.
My take on this product :
When I snapped open the lid, the first fragrance to hit my senses was rose. I must say that I am not a very big fan of anything that smells like roses, but this had a very nice fragrance. While rose was the prominent fragrance, there was also a very citrus fragrance that I could not figure out. I love the smell of khus. From the Rasna cool drink in the bright green colour that we would gulp down as kids to the khus sheets that were packed into the coolers in the summer to ward away the heat, I have strong memories of this fragrance. I was a bit disappointed that the fragrance was not as intense as the rose one :(.
The body wash is light reddish-brownish in colour and is a very free flowing liquid. It does not lather much. It has a nice tingling and a cooling effect post the shower and I would say that this is a product that is ideal for the summer. It leaves behind a very faint fragrance that is pleasant and makes you feel clean and fresh.
Packaging: Packed in recycled bottles, this product comes with a snap open/shut lid. You can squeeze out the desired amount on your palm. I like the packaging and also the fact that it has been packed in recycled bottles.
Cost and Shelf life: A 200 ml of this body wash is Rs. 200 and the shelf life is mentioned on the bottle. I am assuming it is two years from the date of manufacture. This body wash is available only in one size.
Will I recommend this? : Yes. If you are looking at buying a product that is going to keep you fresh and fragrant this summer, go in for this body wash. You will love it!
