Suave Naturals Review and Giveaway


I've always been a loyal Suave personal care products buyer. I totally agree with their philosophy that you can look and feel beautiful "without paying the price". My kids use only Suave Kids shampoos, conditioners and body washes because they cost so little (this is especially important since my kids tend to get a little overzealous when they shower, and have been known to use up a quarter of a bottle of body wash in a single session!) and smell so great. I love smelling their clean, berry/watermelon/apple-scented heads and bodies! I even use the Suave Kids products myself sometimes!

But now that Suave has come up with a new Suave Naturals body wash, I might actually leave the kids' stuff alone. MomSelect sent me a bottle of their Mango Mandarin body wash to try; here's what I thought:


The Basics
New Suave Naturals body wash is infused with mango and mandarin orange extracts. Here's some information from Suave about their new product:

As a busy woman, you know how important it is to catch a moment of bliss in an otherwise hectic day. Whether singing your favorite song, enjoying a piece of chocolate cake or relishing the rejuvenating fragrance of your favorite body wash, everyone can use a moment to recharge during the day. That is why Suave® Body Care is encouraging women everywhere to take time out of their busy day to catch a moment of bliss with NEW Suave Naturals® Mango Mandarin Refreshing Body Wash. Infused with mango and mandarin extracts, along with skin conditioning Vitamin E, this body wash revitalizes the senses and energizes with lively citrus and fruity fragrance bliss. It makes Bath & Body Works® smell way overpriced!

The Bongga
I wish it were 2100 and everybody had personal computers that deliver scents to users when they click on something on the screen -- because then I'd be able to show you how wonderful this body wash smells. Until then, you'll have to rely on my word -- and through my giveaway below, one lucky person will get a bottle of this stuff to smell as often as he/she wants!

The Blah
I can't really find anything I dislike about this product! Maybe the cheap-looking packaging? Nah, I'm happy they don't bottle this in some chi-chi looking bottle and pass the high cost on to me.

Alfie, however, has never understood the appeal of fruity-scented body wash. He says he doesn't think any man would want his woman to smell like a piece of fruit! But I always tell him that not everything women do is designed to catch a man -- ever heard of the feminist revolution, my love? I feel great when I smell that mango smell, it wakes me up and makes me feel pampered and happy and confident. And when a woman feels confident, amazing things happen to her sex appeal....... so in the end, I don't think any man can complain :)


The Bottom Line
Look past the packaging, people -- Suave Naturals offers a blissful, aroma-filled showering experience at a low cost! It's the best indulgence ever for practical people who like to give themselves a treat.
