Recently I had the opportunity to sample the new Ivory 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash in the refreshing scent.  I was the first in the family to give it a try.  I found the scent to be fresh and light, not overpowering, but just right.  The scent made me think of a tropical island, standing in one of those outdoor showers with a nice warm breeze blowing.  All I needed to complete the picture was a handsome cabana boy bringing me a frozen Mai Tai. After snapping back to reality, I noticed the texture/viscosity to be very creamy. But, it did not leave any type of oily or greasy feeling after rinsing.  Since this is a body and hair wash, I gave it a shot on  my hair.  I have naturally wavy/frizzy hair.  I did not like the feel of my hair after rinsing the product out and after drying I found my hair to be on the dry side.  My recommendation would be, if using this as a shampoo, to not forgo conditioner if you usually use it.  I did however love the way it left my skin feeling.  I have dry skin and wanted to see how this would perform with out using lotion or body oil after my shower.  I am very happy to say that it exceeded my expectations! My skin was not dry in appearance or touch. Omitting the lotion step in my daily routine will speed things along in the morning. My husband and children also liked the product.  My husband liked the way his skin felt and found it to be a good replacement shampoo. 

I only wish that, when I received my product to sample, it had come with coupons to share, but it did not.  You can however, find this in your local retailers bath/body department very reasonably priced. If streamlining your morning routine and show clutter are on your list of to-do's, then give this product a try.  I think you will enjoy the results.

Check out Ivory's facebook page here for more information on their products and you can also watch this short video and see how it might simplify your families shower routine. Overall, I give the product an A-, simply becuse I will still need the conditioner bottle in the shower for my hair.
