Think Of The Ocean

This one has a slightly stronger scent than its matching bath salts, but it's not terribly overwhelming if you're not just smelling it straight out of the bottle. It lathers at least as well as any name brand body wash, and should last you a very reasonable amount of time.
Pleasant scent, Lathers well, Cleans well
Ingredients and scent may irritate some, Doesn't really add extra moisture to skin

extremely useful review
Why exactly are you telling me about this?

Because this is a pretty neat body wash that I feel everybody should know a bit about. It's a nice little treat that will make you feel just a little bit more pampered during your regular shower or bath routine.

What's the bottle look like, and what are the ingredients?

The bottle is pretty decently sized, and holds 17.5 fluid ounces. It features a convenient pump top and when the bottle's empty you can wash it out and fill it up with something else if you want. It's mostly clear so you can easily see how much is left at all times, and does say KamaSutra and Ocean Blu on the front, and on the back has a nice little blurb and also lists the ingredients: water, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, lauramide dea, glycerin, fragrance (parfum), prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, daucus carota sativa (carrot) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, sesamus indicum (sesame) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, methylparaben, propylparaben, tocopheryl acetate, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, eugenol, blue 1. Very sensitive skin may want to avoid this product, but for the most part all of the scary sounding ingredients just sound scary. You can read more about parabens here.

Cool, so can I just leave it out in my shower?

Absolutely! Well, if you won't get hassled for a bottle that says "Kama Sutra" on it anyway. It isn't terribly risque but isn't the absolute perfectly discreet bottle either.

What does it smell like? Does it have a taste?

I'd avoid tasting it if at all possible since it's not meant to be ingested, but it does smell nice all the same. If you have the KamaSutra bath salts, you'll already know what it smells like since it smells almost exactly like those do. To me, it smells a lot like "things that are ocean scented but do not smell like the ocean." There's something in there that I can't quite put my finger on and have a very difficult time trying to describe.

Ok, so how well does it work?

Surprisingly well actually. It's at least on par with most other body washes out there. Three pumps will give me a good lather all over my whole body, and my husband's as well. I can get away with about a pump and a half on my own, but I usually go with two or three because I like the extra lather. It rinses out of loofahs and off the body very easily. It doesn't really leave me feeling extra moisturized, but if I don't put anything else on after my shower I'll smell faintly like it for a few hours afterwards, as will my bathroom. Well, my bathroom will smell a little more strongly than faintly, but still for a few hours and regardless of what I put on myself afterwards.

Neat, anything else I should know about it?

If you're very sensitive to scents, you may want to pass on it. Some will find the scent very relaxing, but I can see where some might find it a bit overwhelming as well.

Do you have any pictures?

Well, just for you I suppose. Here's one of it on my desk next to this Cocoa Nostra lip balm that's about the same size as any standard tube of chapstick.

The very first time I used this, I swore it irritated the hell out of my vagina. I don't normally have problems with glycerin or anything else doing that, so I got really caught off guard. I eventually went back and tried it again, for science of course, and was very relieved when I experienced no irritation the second time around. Just like with the bath salts I love the way it smells, but in small quantities. I can't handle it all day every day, but here and there I can and I enjoy the hell out of it when I do.

    Everything *sounds* good, but I like a bath or shower product that leaves me majorly moisturized once I'm done. Great review though!
