- The GG’s Final Thoughts: I LOVE these Body Washes (and so does my Boyfriend)! Although I use Bar Soap most of the time these days… when I travel, I still like to use Body Wash. To me, it’s just more sanitary. So far I’ve tried the Fresh Squeezed Lime and the Fresh Orange and look forward to trying all the others as well. The smell is intoxicating, like a fresh squeezed glass of O.J.- not too intense, just fruity enough! I’ve found that the bottle will last awhile if you remember that it’s waterless and super-concentrated. You only need a tiny bit! Aside from using this in the shower (and sometimes to shave too)… I also use this diluted in Foamer Bottles as Hand Soap in my Kitchen and Bathroom. Yummy & Fresh! We have saved so much $ in my house this way! Plus it’s so much healthier than many of the other hand soaps and body washes you can buy… and a nice switch from the earthy Dr. Bronner’s type scents. I even fill a little travel bottle and throw it in my bag for when when I’m out, so I’m not using those icky chemical-laden soaps! It lathers really well… except when I’m using my scrubby Hydro Gloves for some reason… or taking a bath. IDK… I can live with that though. Bottom line, it’s a LOVE in my book and we will be buying it again! Thanks Bubble & Bee! xo :)

Just wanted to say how much I love your blog! I really like that you have higher standards for ingredients than many of the other natural beauty blogs I’ve come across, I really trust your judgement.
