Does your nose smell rose? Anatomicals body cleanser review


Anatomicals body cleanser in Rose and Lime fragrance.






It has been already 2 weeks since the start of this blog, and I feel so happy and excited about all the things I've discovered and I am learning about natural skin care..still there is a lot to know, but I quiet enjoy this self teaching experiences and the products I am going to review today is one of those..
I was doing my online food shopping for the week and also looking for some new natural beauty products to try and the Anatomicals brand caught my eye..I wanted to find a new body shower and I remember reading a review about it before so I gave it a go and decided to buy two of them (I am trying to involve my "sweet half" to test new products with me so then I can start the list of questions all in one go like "whatdoyouthink?howdoyoufeel?doyoulikeit?doesitsmellsnice?").
As soon as I got them, I noticed the funky packaging, bright colours and weird presentation on the back of the products  (if you read the back you can understand why weird..a sequence of sentences that want to sound cool and "eeeeeaasssyyyymmmaaannn" and to me don't make any sense whatsoever but I am not known for being the coolest person on earth really), anyway I said to myself that it's the contents that matters and these fellas have a parabens free formula ladies and gentleman..

Son passate ben 2 settimane dall'inizio del mio blog e sono elettrizzata al pensiero di quante cose sto' scoprendo su molti prodotti di bellezza naturali..certo c'e' ancora tanto da sapere ma trovo queste esperienze da autodidatta molto piacevoli e la recensione di cui sto per parlarvi e' proprio una di queste..
Qualche giorno fa stavo facendo una spesa online e ricercavo allo stesso tempo dei prodotti naturali nuovi da provare, finche' la marca Anatomicals ha catturato la mia attenzione..Infatti volevo provare un nuovo docciaschiuma e ricordo di aver letto una recensione riguardo questo prodotto quindi ho deciso di comprarne due ( sto cercando di coinvolgere la mia dolce meta' a testare prodotti nuovi con me cosi' poi posso riempirlo di domande del tipo "chenepensi?cometisenti?tipiace?tipiacelafragranza?").
A primo impatto ho notato subito il packaging stravagante, i colori accesi e la strana presentazione scritta dietro i prodotti stessi ( leggetela e capirete perche' "strana"..una sequenza di frasi che vogliono essere "cool" e molto "easy" ma che per me non hanno molto senso..certo non che io sia conosciuta per essere la persona piu' figa sulla faccia della terra), comunque sia mi sono detta che la cosa piu' importante e' il contenuto, e questi prodotti signore e signori sono senza parabeni..


Anatomicals body cleanser in Rose and Lime fragrance.






These body cleanser in Rose and Lime fragrance are actually gel that feel quiet refreshing on your skin and both smells are not overpowering but just leave a nice smell after showering..
Up to now all good...however there is a but..a but that literally I have tested on my skin..
Because these cleanser are gel like and so dry on very quickly, I went for a better look on the list of the ingredients and I think the whole shebang of the description on the back is to tired you up so you actually don't get to read what is contained in the products:  Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Geraniol, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum (Fragrance) etc, which are on the top list of skincare products to avoid.
Well this makes it quiet clear that I won't purchase this brand again despite the price itself is not too bad and fragrance too; but also makes me want to be sure of not spending my money next time in something that wants to look and sound natural but actually could be very bad for your body..
In case any of you guys are interested in trying Anatomicals, here is the usual list of where to buy:
- Ocado 
- ASOS
- Amazon Uk

Has any of you tried this brand? Will you give it a go? Let me know with a comment below :)
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend all!

Questi docciaschiuma in realta' sono dei gel al profumo di rosa e di lime. Sono molto rinfrescanti e la profumazione stessa non e' molto forte quindi non da' fastidio ma lascia la pelle con una buon odore..
Finora tutto bene.. ma c'e' un ma..un ma che ho provato letteralmente sulla mia pelle..infatti per cercare di capire perche' questi gel asciugassero la pelle dopo la doccia, sono andata a controllare in dettaglio la lista degli ingredienti contenuti in questi prodotti:  Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Geraniol, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum (Fragrance) etc, che sono inclusi nella lista di ingredienti da evitare nei prodotti di bellezza.
Questo rende chiaro che io non comprero' piu' questa marca, nonostante sia economica e la fragranza stessa sia piacevole; ma anche sottolinea il fatto di quanto sia importante spendere soldi in prodotti che davvero ne valgono la pena leggendo gli ingredienti e non fidarsi di prodotti che si spacciano per naturali ma in realta' non fanno bene al corpo e alla pelle.
Se siete interessati a provare questi prodotti della Anatomicals, ecco dove comprarli:

Ocado 
ASOS
Amazon Uk

Voi conoscete questa marca? l'avete gia' provata o la proverete?Fatemi sapere con un commento :)
Buon weekend a tutti!

    1. I know Sarah, it is indeed and to be honest it was really a bit of a surprise, but what can you do?

  2. I like the modern feel of the brand, but looks like they're trying so hard to be oh so uber cool that they end up doing it too over the top. I am quite surprised that a self-claiming natural brand would use these ingredients. I am really into alcohol-free, preservatives-free and parabens-free right now as I just found out today that my dry skin is probably caused by my toner from The Body Shop, so I would love to see more about natural/organic beauty products. Great idea for a blog!

  3. Non conoscevamo questa marca! Carino il packaging! Peccato per l'inci!! Purtroppo, come in molti casi, per avere prodotti di qualità bisogna spendere un po' di più!!
    Grazie per il commento!!Che ne dici di seguirci a vicenda?

  4. Gosh I almost ordered a couple of Anatomicals on ASOS and my card was already full. I'm allergic to SLS it causes the top layer of my skin to peel off. Glad I didn't.

  6. Ah that's so disappointing that they claim to be natural!
    You should write to them and complain or something.

    1. Hi Nouvelle,

      I know of some people who asked for a refund in Ocado after buying the products, because back at the time they didn't have the whole Inci on the website..big shame.

    2. Thank you very much both for passing by :) Yes on a positive note, for both the fragrance is very delicate and not strong which is a good thing.

  9. I'm not really a fan of gels much, I tend to prefer the creamy ones instead. It looks pretty though! I hope you might want to check out my personal style blog too, I'm from the countryside of England :) :)

    1. Hello! Mh i know what you mean about gels but I must say the rose and even the lime fragrance works quiet well in gels because gives that feeling of light and freshness on your skin which is very pleasent especially in the summer :)

    1. Ciao Elena!
      Grazie per aver lasciato un tuo commento..anche io sono stata tentata dai colori sgargianti del packaging e dal fatto che speravo fossero prodotti completamente naturali ma purtroppo non e' cosi.
      Fammi sapere se decidi di provarli e cosa ne pensi.

      baci,
