Best Summer Body Wash Series: NARS Ginger Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel

The Best Summer Body Wash Series features the body washes and shower gels that will thrill and delight you all summer long.

Since I'm a major fan of all things NARS, I simply had to try the NARS Ginger Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel. You may think that the photo above doesn't really look real -- how could these huge bubbles really exist in the bottle all the time? Well, I'm here to tell you that the bottle really and truly looks like that as it sits in your shower! So right off the bat, I fell in love with the packaging. It's totally one of those bottles that get comments when I have guests (which, admittedly, is something I really enjoy about my bath products).

But it's even better that the scent is unbelievably captivating. Notes of grapefruit and cassis meld seamlessly with sweet peony and violet flower. The end result is a blissfully delightful aroma that wafts out of the bottle and onto the skin so beautifully. It's light, fresh, juicy and crisp -- totally perfect for summer.

And since it's enriched with natural botanicals like aloe extract and macadamia nut oil, it really moisturizes and nourishes the skin, too. It even has menthol, ginseng and caffeine to energize you and the exclusive TMG Compound to exfoliate your dead skin cells. Every time I lather up with the stuff (and it produces a fabulous lather), my skin is so hydrated and silky smooth!

Note: This product is no longer available.


  1. I am also in love with the packaging. Awesome! Now I wanna buy. Can/have you review a body wash from Bath & Body Works?

  2. I always loved Nars Bath and Shower Gel products because they are so foamy and makes me feel squeaky clean without being overdry afterwards. The ginger grapefruit sounds so refreshing, but Nars does so much damage on my wallet! I'm going to have to wait a bit before I try this one. Thanks for the review!

  3. Wow! I had not heard of this body wash and wonder why...I am a fan of Nars makeup and somehow never though of bath and body from them. Now I want to try! Another body wash for the want list (there are so many!)

  4. That looks awesome! I want to smell it.
