Red Flower Purifying Body Wash in Icelandic Moonflower Review

20140816_112825 (1)

I requested samples from Red Flower and they sent me this purifying body wash foil along with two lotion samples.  Before jumping in the bathtub, I grabbed this foil sample to try!  With a name like “Icelandic Moonflower,” how could I possibly resist?  This is what Red Flower has to say about this product – 

“8 oz. deeply cleanse without drying and delicately scent the skin with an essential blend of omega-6, vitamin-rich flax, stimulating coffee and ginger extracts, wildflower honey and aloe vera to naturally heal the skin, providing a long-lasting softness. apply over the whole body with warm, wet hands in bath or shower.

active ingredients: aloe leaf juice, wild honey, flax seed extract, coffee extract, fragranced oils and ginger root extract. all ingredients are sustainable, biocompatible and biodegradable.

red flower is animal friendly and environmentally kind. wash slowly. live softly. bio-dynamic honey based. wild-crafted botanicals. certified organic.”

On top of that, Red Flower gives an awesome description about the Icelandic Moonflower, obviously they have very interesting/creative writers doing their product descriptions!  I’ve bolded parts I found most interesting.  

“the wet mossy earth, preserved under a flowing arctic river. a winter garden of flowers that flourish in even the rawest of environments. sea rocket, cassiope, apple blossom and moonflower blooming under the northern stars, a dreamy scent, carried in the mist. the pure innocence of freesia that radiates from afar, and the grassy floral of boronia that transcends the night. the psychedelic and transforming power of the moonflower pod that transcends time and space. a moonlight filled trance.

history: datura, angel’s trumpet, this night-blooming flower was revered as a sacred visionary plant by cultures from around the globe. used by pagans and in Nordic traditions to induce trance before practicing divination or going to sleep.
origin: united States, mexico, south africa, and rainy regions of the northern hemisphere
essential oil blend: river flower and moonflower fragrance oils and whole essential oils of rose absolute, sandalwood, clove bud, palmarosa, lavender and armoise.
aromatherapy: induce euphoria, treat headaches, asthma and insomnia
process: solvent extraction
language: visionary journey, divination”

The first thing I noticed was that the smell was very familiar.  I tried and tried and TRIED to place this scent, but couldn’t.  I told my husband that I was fairly certain I’d never smelt an Icelandic Moonflower, but for some reason I just couldn’t place what this smelled like!  Very green, very outdoorsy, very calming…plant like…I really just don’t know!  But let me just tell you, it smelled wonderful, felt great, and I could smell it well after bathing!

The product cost $22 for 8 oz and can be found here!

The Verdict:  Recommend!  Great smell!
