The Body Shop – Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash [Review]

Last month I bought the Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash from The Body Shop. I was looking for anti-ageing products because, well, thirties. Oh, and motherhood. 😉

Whilst I have yet to see any fine lines or wrinkles (thank you mommy!), I have found that recently my skin was looking.. tired, I think. Also, I am aware that just because those lines haven’t made an appearance yet, it doesn’t mean they aren’t close under the surface waiting to sneak up on me like, “Surprise!” And that’s why this wash appealed to me.

Here’s what The Body Shop says about their Nutriganics range, and the Foaming Facial Wash:

Nutriganics – developed for women typically aged 30-40 years to help improve the appearance of the skin and smooth the first signs of ageing. The benefits of the Nutriganics organic skincare range will undoubtedly appeal to those who are looking for alternative anti-ageing products. Combining community trade babassu oil with 14 other organic ingredients. Nutriganics is our first certified organic skincare range for addressing the first signs of ageing.

Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash – An instantly foaming facial wash to gently, yet effectively remove impurities and traces of make-up. Leaves skin feeling cleansed, refreshed and soft to the touch.

It’s been three weeks since I started using the product, and I’m really impressed. You only need a tiny amount to wash your face and neck, which means the 150ml bottle will last  quite a while. This makes the R190 price tag that much easier to deal with.

I also love how soft and gentle it is. I mentioned to Husband that it feels like I’m washing my face in milk. His very “guy” response was “how do you know what it feels like to wash your face with milk?” followed by laughter in appreciation of his own joke. 😀 It hasn’t often been my experience, but with this one I agree completely with the product claim: “Leaves skin feeling cleansed, refreshed and soft to the touch.” My skin feels amazing after washing with this. Even if I get distracted and forget to tone and moisturise right away (this happens most days), my skin doesn’t feel like it’s about to crack if I smile.

This wash is my skin’s new favourite thing, so I’ll definitely be restocking once this one’s done.

    This sounds like such a great product. At which age do you think one should start using anti-aging products? (If you don’t mind me asking).

    I so love the The Body Shop products but I honestly wish the prices were a little bit easier on the pocket. #BrokeStudentProblems

      It is, I think it’s the first time I’ve been this impressed by a facial wash.

      As for when you should start, well someone who knows way more than I do about all this, once told me its best to start in your mid twenties… I was in my mid twenties at the time, and being the rebel that I am (LOL), I didn’t heed that advice.

      Personally, I think it all depends on each person’s skin. I’m 34 now, and have only just started using products aimed at fine lines/wrinkles (which, hopefully, stay away for many years… Pleeeeease!)

      That should just read #BrokeProblems. I have the same issue with the prices, but after years of using cheaper products, I figured its about time I tried something “fancy”… Also, I had finally received a voucher, so that made it hurt less too. 😉

        I’m 24 and turning 25 next year Jan and I was thinking that I should switch over to anti-aging products in the next two years or so. Btw you carry your age really well! I guess if there’s one thing that we need to splurge on every once in a while then it’s good facial products.

          I have a whole decade on you… Eep!.. I’m really old! 😀
          I think planning to switch to anti aging products in two years or so is a good idea. Don’t be naughty like me, and wait too long.
          And thank you for the kind words. When there are so many days when your hair doesn’t cooperate, and nothing fits, a comment like yours is truly appreciated. ❤️
