LAVANILA The Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave Gel in Vanilla Lavender Loves to Shower But Not to Shave

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

I sure do love the light scent of Lavanila’s new Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave in Vanilla Lavender ($15 for an 8-oz. bottle), and not just because it combines two of my favorite scents.


It’s one of five fragrance “flavors” in a new line of body washes — the others being Vanilla Coconut, Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Grapefruit and Vanilla Passionfruit — that Lavanila designed to double as shower gels and shave gels.

As a shower gel, let me be blunt: I think it rocks, and I’m assuming the other flavors do, too. It lathers up into a rich, cleansing foam, feels light and fresh, does a great job of actually cleansing, rinses easily away and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. The lovely fragrance even lingers for a few hours after rinsing.

And, miracle of all miracles (because of how great it works), it’s all natural; many of the ingredients are even certified organic. 🙂

What Lavanila Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave doesn’t contain: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, mineral oils, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs or tricolans.

I think its specialty, or “area of expertise,” so to speak, is how it works as a shower gel, because as a shave gel, I think it’s only okay. Not bad, but it’s not as thick as most dedicated shave gels/creams. And when you get right down to it, just about any ol’ shower gel can double as a shave gel, so it’s not much of a stretch to refer to one as “2-in-1.”


No biggie, though. It stands tall as a spectacular shower gel with a scent I absolutely adore, something Lavanila achieved without the use of any harsh chemicals.

Bravo, Lavanila. Ya done good. 🙂

PRICE: $15 for an 8-oz. bottle
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (not the cheapest shower gel on the block)

    Your cat is so plush and cute!

    I like the packaging of the shower gel, but I prefer shower gels without any fragrance or scents.

    How did you know I’ve been checking out Lavanila lately? Have you tried any of their body butters?

      Hi Paula,

      I have! A while back I got a Vanilla Lavender sample tube from Sephora and really enjoyed the texture and sweet scent. It reminds me of a lavender infused version of Fresh’s Brown Sugar.
