Oceanic bliss and the best scent ever!

When I bought this, I threw out all of my other body washes. This stuff is the best I've tried, hands-down. If you're into cool, aquatic scents, you'll love the AMAZING scent of this bathing gel. It works well for men and women, as it is gender-neutral. It makes your skin lovely and smooth. It will fill your tub with rich bubbles. This body wash has made me wish that they would come out with a lotion or perfume of this scent. It's that wonderful.
best smell ever! makes a tub full of bubbles, excellent body wash, scent lingers for a while
Contains glycerin and parabens.

extremely useful review


This wonderful bathing gel is amazing for use as a bubble bath or as a body wash in the shower. It has replaced my normal body wash because of the amazing scent and how soft and luxurious it has left my skin. This is an excellent bathing gel to use while getting clean with your partner, as well, due to the gender-neutral scent that isn't too feminine or masculine.

The ingredient list isn't the best one out there, but if you look at most body washes, you'll see that it has a pretty normal formula for that type of product. Yes, it contains glycerin and parabens, but it's not going inside you, so it shouldn't be a problem. I've used this for bubble baths and I have a 'delicate ecosystem' but it hasn't caused me any issues. If you're worried about it, don't use this for genital washing. Here's the fill ingredient list:

Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauramide DEA, Glycerin, Fragrance, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Persea Gratissima Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa Seed Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Sesamus Indicum Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Eugenol, Blue 1

As you can see, there are quite a few lovely skin-conditioning oils, which leave your skin super soft and sexy. As someone with dry sensitive skin, I'm highly impressed with the formula and prefer this over the other body washes I have for dry skin specifically.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I actually have this in a slightly smaller bottle with a click-open cap, but I do want the larger bottle with the pump-top on it for even easier application. The bathing gel is comparable to the thickness of most other body washes. You can apply it to a sponge or loofah without it running off, but it's not super thick like a hair gel would be. When applied to the skin, it's very smooth and lathers very well to make you feel ultra clean. When rinsed, it leaves behind nothing but a lovely scent and soft, smooth skin without feeling oily like some moisturizing body washes, or tacky and dry like others.

Taste / Aroma

I really think this has to be my absolute favorite fragrance ever. I purchased this in a set with the Kama Sutra Treasure of the Sea bath salt and both smell very similar and have a scent I can't get enough of. It's a bit difficult to pinpoint the scent exactly, but it's very crisp, fresh, and aquatic. It has been referred to as a "blue-green" scent. It's not too feminine or floral, and it's not one of those potent masculine scents. It's really great for people of either gender because it works no matter who you are. I really can't even explain how much I love this amazing scent. Every time I'm in my bathroom, I have to take a sniff of it because it's THAT good! I find it to be incredibly soothing and relaxing.

After bathing, the scent lingers lightly on the skin for an extended period of time. It's not totally overpowering, though. It usually stays for an hour or two and fades with time. It's about the same as applying a nice scented lotion. I love using this when I'm getting all cozy with someone because I know I'll smell pretty and I've gotten lots of compliments on it.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


With this bathing gel, you only need a little to wash your entire body. I use about a dime-sized amount to do the job. (The smaller 4 oz. bottle I have has lasted me for months and months and I use it every time I bathe.) When used as a body wash, this gel has a rich lather, but it's not too soapy. As a bubble bath, it's exceptional. It creates a whole tub of bubbles! Mine usually last longer than my bath does! It's actually helped my skin, too. I know I can wash with this and not have to run out of the shower and put lotion on because it doesn't dry out my skin like other "novelty" body washes have.

The biggest thing I love about this one, though, is the scent. I mean, I just can't get over how wonderful the Ocean Blu scent is. I wish I could find it in lotion and perfume, as well!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


The bottle is actually pretty discreet. The Ocean Blu is a lovely blue color and the only real text (other than the information and ingredients on the back) is the "Kama Sutra" name and that it's a bathing gel. This one may not cause too much alarm in anyone.

Special Features

Other than the wonderful moisturization properties, this bathing gel is excellent for aromatherapy. I could be having the worst day ever, but when I get in a bathtub full of this, or even use it in a shower, I'm uplifted, but very relaxed.

Personal comments

The product page (as of right now) shows the Ocean Blu bottle, but has the selection labelled as citrus. Hopefully the Ocean Blu is added soon.
Follow-up commentary
I'm sadly about to run out of this stuff and it's rare that I buy something more than once from here, but this is a given, as well as the Treasure of the Sea bath salts. There's just something about that amazing scent that I find so pleasing, and it's great as a body wash. It's by far my favorite ever.
