Ivory 2-IN-1 Hair and Body Wash

Influenster finally decided I was worthy enough to be a part of a new campaign for Ivory!
If you don't know what Influenster is, a very quick rundown: You join the site, write reviews and unlock badges that are relevant to your life, and they choose you to test and review new products!

I was a very active member in the community for a solid year, and then out of nowhere...NOTHING. I was very disheartened but continued to be a member, and they surprised me with an opportunity to try a new product from Ivory soap.

This particular product is a 2-IN-1. Most of us know these kinds of a products as a shampoo/conditioner duo, but in this case, it's almost a 3-IN-1, as it's used not only as a shampoo, but as a conditioner AND a body wash. This seems a bit gimmicky, but I'm always game for trying new bath products!

I received my package and pulled out a HUGE (24oz) bottle of the product. It also told me I was supposed to receive coupons to give out to friends and family, although unfortunately I didn't receive any.

The scent of the product is very basic, but nice. It's a "shower fresh" kind of scent. Very light and clean, and could definitely be used by anyone. There's no masculine scent or floral-y feminine scent to it, which is nice. I really like that it comes in such a large bottle, which it should, considering you're supposed to use it for 3 different things.

Using the product was pretty simple. I shampooed my hair with it first and it suds up well and seems to clean quite nicely. I added a bit more into my hands and left it in as a sort of conditioner to see how well it would work. While I let that sit, I used the product as a body wash, which left my body feeling quite clean! After rinsing my hair and body and getting out of the shower, I attempted to brush my hair a bit.

While I know it's bad to brush my hair wet, I HAVE to do it, or I'll end up with a knotted mess. I can say that this product did NOTHING to help in that department. My hair felt cleaned, but didn't feel conditioned at all.

I was impressed at how well it cleaned my hair and my body and didn't make me break out or leave a squeaky residue, which was very nice. Overall this product does an amazing job of shampooing/body washing and I would definitely repurchase it for my fiance. He's a "get in, get out" kind of guy in the shower, and a product like this is absolutely perfect for him.

I would recommend this product to people who are traveling or on vacation, and just want one product to take with them, or anyone who just likes something quick to use when you're in a rush. If your hair doesn't need much conditioning, this is the perfect choice. Even if you want to consolidate your shampoo and body wash, this is a great option to have along with a conditioner.

All in all, it's a quality product that does what it says for the most part. It smells lovely, has a lot of product for a small price, and is the perfect match for a "quick shower."
