"I have just used this straight out of the box. I was using high street natural products, however recently is appears they have flared up my skin...so much for being natural. I used this and my skin feels fresh and clean. Smell is very pleasant and like the hand wash i just reviewed, I do not feel i need to apply body cream after washing! I think that reflects how good the product is. Good job i purchased two bottles. Price tag is high, but its worth every penny...a little goes a long way so don\'t think because it doesn\'t lather up like other shower washes its not cleaning you. If anything use a sponge so you can stretch it out. I brought my original bottle from an online retailer, and it lasted me a good three to four weeks."
