How much of pomegranate’s skin protective qualities stay with you after a shower or bath is debatable, but products containing this beauty ingredient certainly do leave the skin soft. You can’t go wrong putting pomegranate oil and extracts in body wash and other cleansers. I adore the scent. It’s fresh and energizing. Here’s my top eight for making you feel great.
This is my favorite fragrance from the Weleda Body Wash line (which I absolutely love). The scent is wonderful and the body wash leaves your skin feeling soft. The ingredients are said to help the skin retain moisture and revitalize tired and faded skin and nurture aging skin. The body wash is also infused with macadamia seed oil as well as the pure essential oils of vanilla, blood orange and neroli. It's free of synthetic detergents and gently cleanses the skin, while also nourishing the senses. 6.8 fl oz, $18.
Dove’s Go Fresh Revive collection is scented with pomegranate and lemon verbena. The collection includes body wash, anti-perspirant/deodorant and body mist. The Revive Body Wash is infused with NutriumMoisture that promises to provide skin with deep down hydration and nourishment. 12 fl oz, $4.49 / 24 fl oz, $6.69.
Softsoap’s Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions moisturizing body wash is enriched with pomegranate extract. The scent actually reminds me more of grapefruit, which is not a bad thing because it's refreshing. The soap-free formula contains gelatin moisture beads. I usually prefer creamy body washes to gels because they don’t seem to be as moisturizing. I was also a little concerned that my skin had that “squeaky-clean” feeling as I was rinsing off the body wash which tends to lead to dry skin, but afterwards my skin was surprisingly soft. 18 fl oz, $3.50 - $4.50.
Avon’s blend of pomegranate and mango is formulated with their BioSeed Complex and pure pomegranate and mango extracts that leaves skin cleansed and conditioned. 5 fl oz, $6. For more information visit Avon.com.
