[BODYCARE]: ETUDE HOUSE Sweet Appleade Body Wash2:22:00 AM
First of all, I'm sorry for the short hiatus. It was a long weekend here in my country and I went out of town with my family for a mini getaway, so that's why I didn't blogged for the last several days. But now I'm back and I have new posts lined ahead for you ;)
Okay, if you noticed I have a new shortcut links on the right sidebar of this blog, and one of the shortcut is linked to my favorite Fragrance section. As you might probably know by now, I love fragrance or basically anything scented. So that's why I have quite a lot of body mists, body lotions, shower gels and soaps, perfumes, scented candles, etc.. Basically I collect anything with a scent.
I love buying products in different scents and aroma, because I just love sniffing them and I also use them alternatively. I also like to use them in rotation, depending on the weather or my mood that day. I believe scents/fragrance can have different effects for your mind and body. The popular term for that is: aromatherapy ;p
So that's why I decided to add a new "label/tag" to this blog which is "Fragrance" - in which I posted about scented products. It could be shower gels, soaps, lotions, candles, perfumes, etc. I have reviewed some of these type of products before, so please feel free to browse around by clicking the tag or the shortcut link on the right sidebar. Meanwhile, here is one review of those scented products which is: my current favorite body cleanser.
Etude House is a very popular Korean brand which always comes out with good products and cute packaging. This body wash is simply one of them. I got this Etude House Sweet Appleade Body Wash as a gift and been saving it in my stash. I just recently use this body wash when I ran out of my previous shower gel.
The body wash comes in a rather unique bottle shape. The green color of the bottle and the apple picture at the front makes it really clear that this body wash has green apples scent. On the bottle it says that it is a "cool and delicious" body wash. The active ingredients are orange, lemon, bilberry, sugar cane, and sugar maple extracts, and (according to the bottle) those various fruit extracts are supposed to supply elasticity to the skin.
I believe this is actually from an old collection of Etude House called the "Sweet Appleade" collection. Etude House always release new collections every year, sometimes they even release 2 to 3 new collections in a year (if I'm not mistaken). Each of the collection always have unique theme such as this Sweet Appleade ones.
When I first received this body wash, I took a sniff from the cap and I remember that I didn't really fancy the scent because it smells a bit awkward for me. But when I finally opened this bottle and used it in the shower I found that the scent is actually very refreshing and uplifting. It's the kind of body wash that you want to use in the morning to perk you up ;)
The scent is very refreshing and it does smells like sweet green apples, somehow it kinda reminds me of "summer and pools". The texture of this body wash is a bit different than regular body wash because this one has a colorless hard-gel texture that you have to squeeze out of the bottle. So it's not runny at all, more like a hair-gel type. But once in contact with water, the clear gel becomes sudsy and foamy just like regular body wash.
As I told you above, I like using it in the morning or whenever I need a pick-me-up because the combination of the fresh apple scent and the cool gel texture of this body wash is a great boost to start the day or to lift up a somber mood.
Overall, I really like this body wash because of the unique cooling hard-gel texture which is rather different than other body washes (I love anything non-mainstream ;p), and also because of the uplifting scent and the refreshing feel that I got after showering with this body wash. Definitely recommended ;)
I didn't know how much this body wash costs because it was given to me, and I also didn't think that you can find this range in Etude House anymore because it's an old collection, but I'm pretty sure that you can still get it from eBay for a fraction of the price ;)
Hugs and Kissies,
