Happy Saturday everyone! I am here today to share with you a product that I received as a complementary promotion with Ivory and Influenster.com. I am not being paid for this review and what I am about to tell you is totally my own personal experience and opinion.
I have been an Influenster member since 1/1/2013. I was VERY excited to learn that I would be receiving my first InfluensterVox box to sample and review! I was however a little underwhelmed that it was sponsored by Ivory. Ok… I know that is a little harsh and not what they want to hear but continue reading. I have tried Ivory body washes in the past. I have very dry skin so any time there was a new moisturizing body wash released, I would run out and buy it. Body washes have to be specific: very foamy AND moisturizing. I was always let down because they would never foam up and stay that way through the entire bathing experience. This would send me back to my old stand-bys.
When I opened my VoxBox last Saturday and saw this bottle of 2-in-1 hair & body wash, I honestly was not expecting much from it. I had been gardening all day and decided that day was the best day as any to put this to the test. Shampoo and body wash in one? I don’t know… I have long hair. Is it really going to condition my hair or leave me with a tangled mess? First off, I was impressed with the foam factor! It remained foamy on my wash cloth from face to feet. I did not have to reload half way through like with past products. Yes I use soap on my face and I did not have that tight feeling after (Score!) It also rinsed out of the wash cloth easily and did not leave residue in the fibers. Extra bonus!! But how will it do with my hair? Again, it foamed up perfectly and rinsed out easily. I hesitated a little at this point because I did not feel that slick, just conditioned feeling you get when you use a separate conditioner. I was very tempted to reach for my conditioner. But I wanted to give this product the chance it deserved and stay true to this challenge. I left it as is. After my shower, I towel dried my hair and thought, “Here goes nothing”. Do you know what happened next? My brush glided straight through my hair! No tangles and no dragging! I have not used regular shampoo and conditioner since. This product has a very light scent and when my hair dries, it is soft and full. I have also cut back on the amount of body moisturizer I use daily as well.
Ivory, you did it. You converted me! I don’t think I will get going back to the other brands and I will save money with only having to buy one bottle instead of three at a time!
