Back in college, it was cool to use Vitabath’s Original Spring Green Shower Gelee or the European brand Badedas. That was before shower gel or body wash became popular in the U.S. Actually, Vitabath Spring Green was just about the only game in town.
Over the years, with all the new brands and scents and formulas to try, I stopped using Vitabath and moved on. I have quite a collection of different bottles in my shower.
I still love the fresh scent of Vitabath Spring Green. It reminds me of spring semester sophomore year in college, and I need to buy it again one of these days. But with my Ulta 20% off Thank You coupon, I decided to try one of the new scents from the new Vitabath body wash line.
I’m a coconut scent addict, so I couldn’t pass this one by. The size and price were right, and the new line is made without parabens or sulfates. I’m still confused about whether to avoid parabens or not, and the original Vitabath line has parabens. So that sealed the deal. I bought the Heavenly Coconut Creme Body Wash, priced at $7.99.
The scent is a cross between summer and coconut layer cake.
The Vitabath Heavenly Coconut Creme Body Wash doesn’t provide a ton of lather. I tried it directly on my skin and also with a pouf, and it lathers enough for me, but you don’t get tons of bubbles like you do with some other body lotions.
It left my skin feeling clean and soft. I like it. I don’t know that it’s one of my all-time favorite body wash or shower gels both in terms of lather and scent, but I like it enough to use it often.
Next time, I may take that walk down memory lane and go back to the Original Spring Green!
The new Vitabath line is sold at Ulta, Amazon.com, and vitabath.com for about $8.The body wash contains 12 oz. and it’s made in Canada. The Vitabath “Fragrance” line has 18 scents to choose from, so you will most likely find one you like, if coconut is not your thing.
