I recently had the opportunity to review a luxurious body wash that is ideal for all skin types from the Shikoma collection, a Prana SpaCeuticals body products line. Made from deionized water, fermented rice sugars and moisturizing butters, this all-natural body wash exfoliates, cleanses and hydrates the skin. Indulge all of your senses with the subtle fragrance of the Japanese yuzu sparkling fruit combined with a hint of botanicals, while the rich, thick lather gently exfoliates and moisturizes even the driest skin.
The first time I tried the Shikoma Body Wash, it was truly a relaxing experience. Just a little bit of the gel on a loofah or bath pouf was all I needed to get a nice lather that easily rinsed away leaving my skin clean, incredibly smooth and smelling wonderful. The shower was filled with a relaxing, botanical scent that was light and natural, nothing at all like some of those artificially-scented body washes whose scent is overbearingly sweet and hit a false note.
After drying off, instead of my skin quickly drying out and needing lotion, it remained moisturized and soft with a lingering hint of that incredible scent. I tend to have some dry patches of skin on the backs of my arms to which I constantly find myself adding lotion. Having followed the directions on the Shikoma bottle, and making sure to massage the body wash more thoroughly into this area, I was very pleased to not have to put any additional moisturizer on my arms for the entire day!
I really liked how for an all-natural product, the Shikoma Body Wash still had a nice, rich lather although it contains no harsh lathering agents. I am trying more and more to use only all-natural skin care products, and I have come across quite a few whose lather-quality was quite disappointing. Although I know this is due to the lack of chemicals and lathering agents which are not good for the skin nor the environment, I still associate lather with cleanliness. So in my mind, the more lather, the better the product cleans. And although this is not necessarily true, it is still nice to find an all-natural product that produces a good amount of lather!
I also love the way it smells, and how it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft as silk! It provides a true spa-like experience in the privacy of my home, the perfect antidote for a stressful day! I now have a new favorite body wash in Prana SpaCeutical’s Shikoma Body Wash!
