Beauty Review: Pattern Body Wash

| 4/30/2010 9:42:23 AM

GinaI love discovering beauty products that use essential oils in lieu of artificial fragrances. For the past few months I’ve been enjoying four beauty products from a new company called Pattern. Pattern makes one essential beauty product—body wash—and they make it very well.

Each body wash blend includes herbal extracts and essential oils. The washes are thick enough that they don’t require an excessive amount to lather up with and the fragrances are very subtle, which is perfect for those who don’t like overwhelming beauty products. Here is a roundup of my experiences with each of the four fragrances.

Citrus: Although I really liked this product, of the four this may have been my least favorite. However, I think that has more to do with my apathy toward citrus smells than it does with the actual product. If you consider yourself a citrus-fiend, I believe you’ll love this fragrance. The essential oils, which include grapefruit, neroli, lemon and peppermint, make it a more unique citrus blend.

Eucalyptus: This is a very fresh and clean smell that would be perfect to use during a bath for a spa-like experience. The essential oils include a spring-inspired combination of eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender and spearmint.

Cucumber: In the past, cucumber has always been my standard, go-to scent. However, this particular cucumber-scented body wash didn’t smell like any I’ve used before. That didn’t mean I liked it any less. In fact, I think I liked it even more. Its unique combination of essential oils, which includes cucumber, basil, white rose and geranium, made it stand out from the rest.
