Love Beauty and Planet Is In My Bathroom – A Products Review

A little while ago when I was at Shoppers Drug Mart I noticed a display with this brand that I had never seen before and it had some “NEW” labels all over it. Ooh new products! I just HAD to take a look 😉 and ended up leaving the store with a new product from Love Beauty and Planet. I cannot resist coconut-scented products so I picked up the Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Body Wash.

Love Beauty And Planet Body Wash

Initially, I thought they only had three scent collections because that’s what my local Shoppers had, but then I noticed fellow bloggers posting about other scents that I hadn’t seen. I looked them up and found out that they have six scent collections, and that Walmart also carries the brand. The next time I was at Walmart I looked for these products and they had all six scent collections, yay! When I saw the Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower collection I immediately grabbed the body wash. I mean, coconut! And it costs less at Walmart than it does at Shoppers – noted for next time!

Ingredients

The ingredients list is almost the same for both products but differs a bit towards the end. They do have different scents after all.

Scent wise these both smell very similar, with coconut being the main scent. The Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang scent is more warm and rich, and the Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower scent is more light and fresh.

These both lather up really well and give my body a good cleaning; my skin is left feeling smooth and soft.

Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Body Wash

I don’t really know what else to say other than they smell wonderful and do a great cleaning job, lol! I just wish Love Beauty and Planet made body lotions because I’d be first in line to buy them; I LOVE coconut scented products! I know they make shampoos and conditioners, but I’m very picky about my hair care products and that is one department where I don’t experiment much.

Here’s a little info I copied from Love Beauty and Planet‘s site that will make you feel good about using these products.
