At this point, I’ve been using generic anti-bacterial shower gels for my evening shower while maintaining on using scented body oil or cream cleansers for my morning shower for over four months and now it has become a habit.
I’m sure that a lot of you are aware of the high alcohol content in most anti-bacterial shower gels or simply making my skin feels dry after shower so it is important to at least alternate them with moisturising or non-drying body cleansers.
Now, there are 4 different body cleansers released by Love Beauty and Planet here in Malaysia and this Petal Soft Body Wash with Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower aroma is actually the second one that I have tried from the brand. I just had to say right here that I do love the sweet, bit powdery scent to this but let’s get more into it, shall we?
What’s up with this body cleanser?
- Blended with coconut water which is known for its hydrating property and together with a refreshing aroma of handpicked mimosa flower, the body wash leaves my skin with soft-to-touch skin.
- The rich green floral notes in the ethically-sourced Moroccan mimosa flower is enhanced by the distinctive undertones of powdery honey and a fruity raspberry.
How to Use:
Simply lather and massage in the shower then rinse off.
Capacity: 400ml – about 80 showers. I only use this in the morning so that’s about 3 to 4 months for me.

Basically, the product comes in a sturdy clear plastic bottle so it’s easy to monitor the amount of product left in the bottle. There are product description and ingredients list printed in English for your convenience.
At the bottom of the bottle, there is the product expiry date printed in the format of EXP DDMMYY (Date-Month-Year).
The shower cream doesn’t come with a pump; just that simple cap with small hole for easy control in dispensing the product. While I’m fine with either having pumps or not, I’m guessing it’s one of the brand’s efforts to reduce plastic usage in their manufacture.
The bottle is quite soft to begin with so I can easily squeeze it to dispense more product.
The shower cream is slightly transparent beige colour and I usually need 1 to 2 pumps of the product for my whole body.
With shower cream, I always use my bath lily or sponge, mix it with water a bit and then squish it to form soft, fluffy bubbles with it. Then I just run the bath lily all over my body.
As for the scent, I’ve mentioned above that the scent is kind of sweet yet refreshing and a bit powdery. It’s indeed the first time I’ve tried anything with mimosa flower scent and now I’m obsessed with it!
Overall, I give this body wash 5/5. I do love using it not only because this product doesn’t dry out my arms and legs but also its somewhat refreshing scent that just lift up my mood in the morning! I usually apply its lightweight body lotion sister afterwards to lock in all the moisture, prolong the scent itself and prevent any dryness caused by air-conditioned room or office.
Looking at the ingredients list, there are at least 4 ingredients (underlined above in the list) that are not suitable for sensitive skin although I have been using this body wash for about 2 months now but I haven’t experience any irritation so I guess it’s all good.
Also, if you are into vegan body products then this brand is surely interesting enough to check out plus with each purchase, RM1 will be donated to the Malaysian Nature Society for the conservation of the Malayan Tapir. Thumbs up!
