Güd from Burt's Bees- Orange Petalooza Natural Body Wash

Güd from Burt's Bees is a new bath and body line that focuses on the scent of the products while maintaining the (mostly) natural theme of Burt's Bees. The Orange Petalooza Natural Body Wash smells mostly like orange soda, which goes well with the cheerful flower-power theme of the packaging (but less so with personal taste). I think they took it a little too much into the "yummy" side of things and forgot to put in the promised hyacinth.

Güd's body wash lathers nicely and has not made my skin itch. I do find too drying, though, so I must moisturize good and well as soon as I step out from the shower. The product is supposed to be 97% natural and made without parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals. Here's the ingredient list, copied from Güd by Burt's Bees website:
water, sodium coco-sulfate, fragrance, cocamidopropyl betaine, disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate, sodium chloride, coco-glucoside, glycerin, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, hyssopus officinalis extract*, juglans nigra (black walnut) leaf extract*, melissa officinalis leaf extract*, rosa canina fruit extract*, rubus idaeus (raspberry) leaf extract*, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, citric acid, alcohol denat., potassium sorbate, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol
Bottom line: It's okay, but nothing special.

Güd from Burt's Bees Orange Petalooza Natural Body Wash ($7) is available at most drugstores. I received it and a couple of others as a Klout Influencer perk.

  1. I love the rubber duckies, if not so much the idea of the body wash.

  2. I agree with your Bottom Line completely.
    I prefer to use a body wash with shea butter or something else to start the moisturizing in the shower.
