The Nature's Co Sandalwood Body Wash - Review

Give me any bath product that smells of rose, chocolate, vanilla, jasmine and sandalwood and I'm 80% sold at the first whiff. These are my favorite scents in the whole wide world and somehow I always end up buying products that have either one of these. I've bought so many duds in the past only for the smell! The Nature's Co Sandalwood Body Wash though is definitely not a dud. It's one of the brand's bestsellers. I've been using this for the last three days now and loving it.

Here's what Nature's Co has to say about the product:

Get a bath treat with the unique, woody aroma of Sandalwood. It purifies and hydrates ageing, dry or flaky skin and its astringent action balances oily skin conditions. It’s even recommended for calming and relaxing the body and mind. This heavenly cleansing body wash lathers up in the bath or shower.

I don't have ageing skin but it definitely becomes quite dry at this time of the year so the product came to me for review at a very appropriate time. 

In terms of packaging, its nothing very fancy. A very simple transparent plastic squarish bottle with a flip top cap (which is too tight btw). I quite like how the bottle looks. You can see what the product looks like and also read clearly the description and the list of ingredients.

What makes this product awesome is what will hit you when you open the flip top cap. The red sandalwood smell is divine! It's so fresh and soothing. Whenever I smell this (and it's many times during the day!), I feel like I've been transported to a spa and I'm being pampered no end. I was quite skeptical when I read the lines "it's even recommended for calming and relaxing the body and mind". How can a body wash do that?? I now know that it really can! Just open the lid and take a whiff! What is also great is that there is nothing artificial about the smell. Take a paste of red sandalwood and compare it with the smell of this body wash and you will see how similar both are.

This is a gel body wash and the consistency is mildly runny. I use a loofah in the shower and need only a small amount to get considerable lather. I'm already sold on the smell. What I love next is the effect on my skin. The body wash is very mild and not at all drying. I've mentioned that at this time of the year my skin starts to become dry and stretchy so I need to apply a body lotion after a shower. I've not been doing that ever since I started using this body wash. My skin feels soft, hydrated and so smooth. My only gripe is that the smell does not linger on the body for more than 1-2 hours after the shower. Would have loved a longer wear time. 

In a nutshell, here's what I think of The Nature's Co Sandalwood Body Wash

  • Simple and sturdy packaging making it travel friendly
  • Divine smell
  • Made with natural ingredients
  • Cruelty free
  • Lathers well enough
  • Does not dry out skin. Perfect for dry-skin beauties
  • Expensive for a body wash at Rs 595 (250 ml)
  • Smell does not last on the body for more than a couple of hrs

If you are looking for a mild body wash, which smells great and does not dry out skin, try this one out. It's absolutely lovely!
