Just a quickie review. I have been using these Dr. Organic body washes and they’re a real treat to use and have made a big difference on my dry skin. They don’t contain any SLS/ALS so they’re really gentle and I find that my skin is noticeably softer and silkier after showering – no more scaly skin! They don’t lather as much as shower gels containing SLS, but they cleanse thoroughly without stripping the skin, and they smell good too.
I have the Virgin Olive Oil and Royal Jelly body washes, but they also come in Aloe Vera, Pomegranate, Tea Tree, Vitamin E, Lavendar, Manuka Honey, and Rose Otto. See all ranges and benefits on the Dr. Organic site.
In the UK, Dr. Organic products are available from Holland & Barrett at £5.19 for 250ml, but there is currently a promotion for 2 for £7.78. I’d definitely recommend giving these body washes a go if you have dry or sensitive skin. I’ve used a few SLS-free body washes in the past, but these are my favourite so far. While you’re there, check out the Dr. Organic body lotions as well – they’ve really impressed me too (see my review here).
