I was inspired to buy this product after I read a glowing review of the Jasmine-scented body wash on Jezebel.com. Apparently this Korres product used to be sold in the United States, and left many heartbroken customers behind when it became practically unavailable. The many Kings and Queens Body wash product reviews (from other sites as well as the review mentioned above) went into lurid detail about the rich, luxuriant lather and the heavenly fragrance that would permeate the bathing room and linger on the skin. Finally, practically everyone talked about how silky their skin felt afterwards.
Well, I think I got gypped by ordering this product through this reseller. I received the very well-packaged product way before the expected delivery date, and excitedly prepared to use it. When I opened the bottle, I detected an underwhelming and barely noticeable fragrance that could be either vanilla pear or a generic shampoo. Honestly, a cheap drug store body wash has a stronger scent. No matter, I thought. Maybe it's one of those products that kicks in once it's in use.
Again, I was wrong. The unique, lingering fragrance, ultra-rich lather and silky skin? The product didn't lather much at all. When I dried off, there was no trace of the supposed vanilla pear scent on my skin. My skin was not silkier at all. My conclusion? Either hundreds of reviewers are wrong about their unified praise of this product, or this seller is putting something else in the product's bottle.
The good thing from having spent way too much money on a bottle of body wash is that now I have the product information. Perhaps by contacting the manufacturer directly I can get a hold of a sample. If and when that happens, if the product I receive is an exact match, I will retract the idea that I've been a consumer victim of the ol' bait and switch.
