Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Body Wash Review

You know when you stay in a nice hotel and get home only to realise the complimentary shampoo, body wash etc. have accidentally-on-purpose come back with you... and you know how it smells so good you save it because you couldn't possibly use it for every day.. Well that's exactly what this Seascape body wash reminds me of!

Everything about it says luxurious to me. It's the kind of body wash that not only comes in gorgeous packaging and looks lovely sitting on your shelf, it's a dream to use too. It has such a refreshing scent (eucalyptus, lime and lavender) which has been a blessing each morning during this hot, sticky weather. Personally, although I love sweet scents, they don't make you feel half as clean and fresh during hot weather as fresh fruity/flowery scents like this do.

You don't need much product to get a good lather going so it might seem a little on the pricey side at £16 for 300ml but it will last you a long time compared to cheaper products so it does even it out a little. It really woke me up and made me feel ready for the day ahead, unlike sweet scents that make me feel like putting my jammies on and hopping back into bed!! The scent is strong enough that you can smell it but not overpowering or offensive by any means and it leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean without drying it out.

"Contains 100% natural essential oils of Jersey Eucalyptus to stimulate the circulation, Lime to energise the body and Lavender to refresh the senses"

I was particularly impressed to discover that it's made in the UK from locally sourced ingredients and doesn't contain any of those "nasties" that many others on the market do. Big thumbs up!

"Our products are paraben, silicone, petroleum and SLS free and are suitable for vegetarians. We do not use artificial colours or synthetic fragrances. We are against animal testing. All of our ingredients are sourced from ethical suppliers and our bottles and packaging are recyclable."

My only gripe, if I really had to give one is that I'd have liked the bottle to have been glass just to give that extra lux feel.. But then I'd have moaned I couldn't get the product out and you can't have it both ways! ;)
Would I go and purchase this myself? Although I've enjoyed using it, probably not this one in particular as I very rarely use the same one twice but I would definitely try other Seascape products, particularly the Peppermint Oil Lip Balm or the Sooth Body Wash and I think anything from Seascape would make beautiful gifts for your loved ones.
