I am a bit of a body wash hoarder and can hardly ever resist buying one with an interesting fragrance. What made the Plum Vanilla and Fig – The Rich Shake Body Wash even more exciting was the fact that it was offered as a freebie with my recent Plum purchase, so I could definitely not let the opportunity to try this product slide by. I have been using this in my shower for quite a few days now and here is what I think about the product.
This product comes in a convenient pump bottle that I quite like because it is not messy to use and is travel-friendly. The actual body wash is a white liquid that smells like vanilla, but I am not able to identify the scent of figs in the fragrance. Despite this, the fragrance is absolutely heavenly and lingers on the skin for at least a couple of hours after stepping out of the shower. If you are someone who loves the scent of vanilla, this product will definitely steal your heart.
The product does not lather as much as I usually prefer, and I need at least 3-4 pumps to lather up my whole body to my satisfaction. It is quite gentle on the skin and leaves it looking smooth and supple, but I do not think that this body wash is particularly hydrating when compared to other body washes in the market.
Overall, I like the fact that this product is vegan and paraben-free, but since I have high expectations from Plum as a brand, it did not manage to wow me. I like its fragrance and packaging but the price point of INR 400 for 200ml of the product seems a little steep to me. However, since Plum is always running discounts on this body wash and offering it as a freebie with orders above a certain amount, I think it is worth a shot. Not a product that I will buy at full price, but definitely one that I would love to get again as a gift 🙂
