J.R. Watkins Detox and Sleep Creamy Body Wash and Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist Review

Not Sponsored: One of my goals this year is to review products that promote relaxation and sleep. I was looking on ULTA's website and saw J.R. Watkins DETOX Creamy Body Wash and DETOX Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist (there's also a DETOX Sugar Body Polish and DETOX Bath Elixir) and J.R. Watkins SLEEP Creamy Body Wash and SLEEP Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist (there's also a SLEEP Sugar Body Polish and SLEEP Bath Elixir). J.R. Watkins also makes an AWAKEN Creamy Body Wash, AWAKEN Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist, AWAKEN Sugar Body Polish, and AWAKEN Bath Elixir, but I didn't purchase those. I've never tried anything from the J.R. Watkins brand. They've been around for over 152 years (1868). They create natural remedy products that soothe and heal the body. They focus on the mind, body and spirit. I love their philosophy! "At J.R. Watkins we are committed to helping you find calm, peaceful moments of reprieve from daily stress through our products and regimens." Their price point is wonderful. All of these products are cruelty-free, paraben-free, silicone-free and sulfate-free. Below are my thoughts.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

J.R. Watkins DETOX Creamy Body Wash and Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist - Sweet
J.R. Watkins states "Our DETOX line is crafted to clear your mind and detox your body. Wash away impurities and relieve inflammation for a much-needed reset. ⁣⁣Infused with witch hazel to clarify skin and ginger to soothe muscles." I love the scent of both the creamy body wash and in-shower mist. It's ginger, but it also reminds me of an orange creamsicle. The body wash is creamy. It lathers well. Feels great on the skin. It rinses easily. It provides light moisture. The in shower mist has the same scent. I would spray this from the chest downward, because the scent will rise. The only quirk I have is that the scent only lasts a short time (about the time it takes to apply and use the body wash). So if you take long showers, you will have to spray it a couple of times. But overall the scent is satisfying to the senses. It's calming and relaxing. You can use this both day & night.

J.R. Watkins SLEEP Creamy Body Wash and Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist - Bittersweet
J.R. Watkins states, "Our SLEEP line is crafted to calm the mind, relax the body, and support a restful night’s sleep. Infused with lavandin to encourage relaxation and orange to calm your nerves." When I purchased these, my focus was on the word SLEEP. If I took a shower at night using this product, would I go to sleep? WELL ... that is not the case with this product. I wish they would've called it CALM or RELAX, because that is what it does. Of course you eventually go to sleep, but its not right away. The SLEEP scent for these are very light. A little too light for me (almost non-existent). This has lavandin (encourages relaxation), orange (relieves nervous tension), calendula (protects collagen to beautify skin). What's positive about these is that the creamy body wash feels great on the skin, cleanses well and rinses cleanly (again, only light moisture). The in shower mist, because of the very light scent almost serves no purpose. By the time you spray it, the scent is gone. So I wasn't very impressed with the SLEEP formula.
