I was excited to receive a sample of the minty/pine scented Dirty Springwash Shower Gel from LUSH. I tried it out myself, but soon surrendered my sample to my boyfriend. He loved the minty/pine scent and asked for more.
- Minty scent is suitable for men and women
- Can also be used as a shampoo
- A little goes a long way
- Fragrance was a favorite of my man
- Lathers well
- Contains ingredients such as propylene glycol and methylparaben
I love the philosophy behind LUSH, as they work to reduce packaging and literally show you the faces behind each product. They are a cruelty-free company with a wide selection of vegan products. However, their products tend to be a little more expensive than others (Dirty Springwash starts at $9.95 for 3.3 oz). Lush stores are in many cities, but those who mail order will have to pay additional fees for shipping.
I enjoyed the performance of the Dirty Springwash, but I was surprised to see certain ingredients on the label. In particular, the ingredients fragrance and methylparaben helped contribute to an EWG safety rating of 6, which is fairly high for a "natural" product. I'd recommend reevaluating some of these ingredients to make this even safer. However, it's nice to see a shower gel with a nice scent for men and women alike.
