I know I’ve already done a review on the bottled Juni by Xango products, when I did so I had yet to use the Gentle Body Bar. Due to trying to get out of the house on time yesterday, I used my Juni Bar.
Monday. That word alone should bring about nods of understanding from my readers. Trying to get out of the house on time, two hours of sleep the night before, find time to eat, take allergy meds, make a lunch…yeah. All in the time of an hour! I had unwrapped my Juni Bar completely a few days ago, just so I could smell it while I worked on my computer. As I headed to the shower, wondering how on earth I was going to get to the bank and Starbucks before starting my hour commute to work, I grabbed the bar.
Now. I love bars of soap more than anything, especially natural bars of soap because I can use it all over and for everything, which is very handy when I am showering in a hurry but still need to be clean. That Juni Bar was AWESOME. Lathered up quick and rich and I used it to wash my hair, face, my body, shave…one bar of soap did it all. My hair felt GREAT afterwards, not gummy and not weighed down at all. The soap did not bother the sensitive skin on my face or anywhere else on my body.
Even better? It didn’t vanish. Some handmade soaps, you use it once and the bar is half gone. I don’t think the imprint is gone yet, this is a sturdy bar of soap! I will have it for a while for sure, its a good, solid 3 ounces, and I figure as long as I keep it dry between uses I shouldn’t have an issue.
The ingredients, like the smell, are just yummy. We have shea butter, orange oil, lavender oil, safflower seed oil, among other things, as well as the mangosteen pericarp. This soap is not drying or irritating and leaves your skin feeling really good and clean without that sticky, drying feeling I usually end up with after using a standard bar of soap.
You should know that I sweat, and its easy to get funky by the end of my work day, so much so that I need to shower before bed. I got home from work 12 hours later still feeling pretty good in my skin, and this morning I smell my arm and I can still smell the soap. Don’t get me wrong, its not perfumy or flowery or heavily scented, there are no scents other than the oils in the soap.
Bottom line? WINNER. Its foamy and smells good and cleans and my hair liked it. I was out of the shower in 10 minutes and I was able to hit the bank, hit the Starbucks drive thru AND make it to work on time.
I smelled good the entire time. If I was offered a case of this wonderful product I would take it. Its multi purpose, gentle yet effective, and healthy.
Oh, and if you unwrap it and leave it on your desk, it makes your work area smell really good. *grins*
