Madre Labs Body Wash Review


I had won a GC to iHerb.com and I did not know who they were and had never been to their site to shop until I won the $50 GC. I went bananas in their shop but finally got my order together and emailed them and got it going. Well, when the order came there was an extra product in there and I had found out that they wanted me to try Madre Labs Rosemary Mint Body Wash since I have dry skin and I guess just to be nice which you don't find much anymore with the bigger companies.

I emailed them and told them since they had sent me a full size body wash just for the heck of it, that I was going to at least review the Madre Lab Body Wash! But first let me tell you that for $50, I got a whole big box full of stuff! I have so much body wash, shampoo, conditioner and bar soaps to last until next spring! So, if you want good quality, low prices and looking for natural products or organic products this is the place for you!

When I first tried the Madre Labs Body Wash it lathered up really quick and with lots of suds. I don't take baths on account of my bladder condition, I have to take showers 100% of the time so I use a shower scrubber or loofah, whatever you want to call it. I could barely see my scrubber for all the suds!

Then I noticed the smell, a nice clean whiff of the outdoors mixed in with the Rosemary Mint! Now, one thing you need to know about any product that has any kind of mint in it is that you don't want to get it in your eyes or even near them. Because I take showers sometimes I will get carried away and some suds will smack me in the eyes or in just rinsing off a little might fly up and when it does hit anywhere near the eyes, you will know it right away. It stings just a tiny bit but just keep rinsing off and it goes away pretty quick.

I had some shampoo a week or so ago that had some kind of mint in it and when I went to rinse my hair it fell down my face and got me in the eyes a little. Now, if you wash your hair bending over you probably won't get any in your eyes, but I don't, so I did. No big deal for me because the benefits outweigh that minor setback. But I just wanted you to know that in case you tried to use it on children, it would be best if you didn't. You know how they like to play in their baths, so just don't do it.

The Madre Labs Body Wash is a pretty good size at 12.5 fl.oz.'s so I expect this to last quite awhile. I went on iHerb's site and read a little bit about the body wash and found out it is soap free and made with Argan Nut Oil with the Rosemary Mint to instantly wake you up in the mornings for those of you that still work and especially in the early am when it is the hardest to get up! Well, a shower with this little beauty will perk you right up!

Along with those ingrediants it also has Vitamin E to help your skin feel silky smooth. It also has a blend of superfruits like acai, gogi, seabuckthorn and pomegranate. Those superfruits protect your body from oxidative and environmental damage. Who knew that bottle had so much power inside it? Not me. But the nice folks at iHerb thought I needed it and since I did not order it while I was shopping with my GC, they went ahead and put one in there just because they wanted me to have something special for my dry skin!

Now, for iHerb, they are kinda like an Ulta or Sephora but only for natural and organic products. The difference is that you can buy healthy, organic and natural foods here also along with pet products! They also have a section for you to buy home products. I even found a section on Vitamins and Supplements, a section for sports related items like drinks and supplements and protein bars. There is even a tab you can click on that says Health Conditions and you can shop according to your condition.

Now how cool is that? I never have been to a site like this so I spent quite alot of time on there because I was just so fascinated at what they had. It's like a Super Giant of shopping in the natural health food store! Next time I order something I am going to get something called the Best Digestive Enzymes to help with bloating and better digestion. I have IBS and I am willing to try anything that will help. Especially the bloating. Some days I feel like I am 6 months pregnant I will blow up that bad!

I just wanted to give a great company a little recognition because they went a little beyond good customer service in that they wanted to make sure I had a good product for my dry skin. I try to buy good products all the time but I will admit I don't know much about organic or natural products and I think I picked some pretty good stuff from name brand companies but I did not order this one. And evidently, they felt so strongly about my needing it for my dry skin, they sent it for free and this is not a sample, this is a full size bottle! So, a big shout out to iHerb!

Isn't it great when companies go that extra mile? I always see people being so quick to be snarky and point out bad companies, but very few take a moment to say something when a company does something nice! Thanks I will look into iHerb and Madre Labs!
