Ablutions: Coconut Lemongrass

Ablution is an actual word:

ablution \uh-BLOO-shun\, noun:
1. The act of washing or cleansing; specifically, the washing of the body, or some part of it (as in a religious rite).
2. The water used in cleansing.

It is also the onomatopoeia of a sneeze.

So, gesundheit, and let's review.

Price: $5

Appearance: Clear tube covered by a spa-like white label with a printed flower. Basic.

Glide: Great glide. The balm is thick enough to coat with one swipe, and it's thickness keeps it from being to greasy.

Flavor/Smell: I thought Coconut Lemongrass would smell like Thai food. In a good way. But it smells exactly like suntan lotion, with a lemon twang. It's a good smell, a bit strong, but it works.

Lasting Power: Hours. This one will keep on keeping on.

Product Plusses: 98% organic made with all sorts of yummy smelling organic oils and waxes. The Ablutions website has all sorts of info about the ingredients of the balm, and all their products. Transparency is key, folks.

4.30 out of 5 tubes

Another flavor I was able to try was Chocolate Orange Truffle: Same greatness as the Coconut Lemongrass, but with an even more amazingly tasty scent.
