Ivory Refreshing 2 in 1 Hair and Body Wash Review

Ivory makes soaps and body wash. This time they have come up with a new formula that does not just cleans the body, but also does the job of shampoo. Yes, it cleans hair too. That is why; it is called 2 in 1 Hair and Body Wash. But how effective is it? That you will find out from my review of this product.

Fragrance Test
Apparently, it is not just for women, but for all in the family. This means men can use it too. Another feature of the product is that it is free of intense perfume. Do not confuse it with “fragrance free”. The liquid does have a beautiful calm scent. It reminds me of Johnson and Johnson lotions made for babies, but it is even less overwhelming than their fragrance. This is nice, but what disappoints me is that it does not last even an hour on the skin. Strangely, the hair holds it better. I could smell it even after day one of using the product. Sure it smelled light, but it was still there!

Washing Test
When applying the liquid to body it feels just like any other body wash. It has nice light foam and does not irritate the skin. However, washing it off is not easy. The skin stays slippery until tremendous amount of water is used to clean it. I have a feeling that it has connection to ingredients added to the liquid to make it suitable for hair. Traditionally, shampoo works like that on the skin. Do not still consider the liquid to be evil, for it does not dry out the skin after shower. In my case, I have not seen any flakes or white spots.  How is the product on hair? This is where things get interesting. Although it is no specialized Pantene, it does a fine job of cleaning the hair. Like soaps, it does not bring roughness and dullness. Shine is subtle and the hair feels quite soft.


Verdict
I like the convenience factor attached to this Ivory product because I prefer shampooing my hair every other day. I travel a lot for school these days and obviously this means I carry my bathing stuffs in a bag. By habit, for me, longer trip means shampooing my hair twice in a day. I just cannot stand sweat in hair. But the most annoying thing is that when in a hurry, sometimes I forget to put things in my bag. Shampoo turns out to be one of them. In this case, Ivory body and hair Wash is my life saver. I sincerely wish its next formula makes the fragrance last longer. The liquid should also be more washable. All other features are truly praiseworthy.  I would give this product 3.5 out of 5 stars.
