Review: Imperial Leather Foamburst Bewitching Blackberry and Wild Fig Luxurious Body Wash

It's a been a long while since I used any Imperial Leather shower products, so I was really intrigued by their newly transformed Foamburst body wash range, which seems to be very different from their other products. There are seven different scents in the range and each come in a 200ml bottle, which costs £2.99 and will last for approximately 40 showers.  

For the past few weeks I have been using the Imperial Leather Foamburst Bewitching Blackberry and Wild Fig Luxurious Body Wash. The design of the packaging is very modern; I like the contrast between the black and the bright purple colour (there is a different colour for each scent), which is very galactic looking and gives a mysterious feel to the product. The formula is very unique and nothing like I've tried before; as you can see in the photos above, when it is first released onto your hand it has quite a thick, gel like consistency and is rich berry purple in colour. As it comes into contact with your skin it begins to slowly turn white around the edges. Then when you actually lather up the gel it completely transforms into a creamy, white foam, that is very similar to shaving foam, but not as heavy or as thick. It also smells a lot nicer - it has a lovely fruity scent, which is not overpowering and not too sweet. I have to say, it can be a little strange using the Foamburst Luxurious Body Wash because occasionally my mind wonders why I'm using shaving foam and not shower gel!! However you can actually use this to shave with and it works wonderfully; a little goes a long way and I'm left with seriously smooth skin. 

I should also mention here that each Foamburst scent has its very own (topless) genie and each genie's character and personality is meant to be a reflection of that scent. The genie for the Bewitching Blackberry and Wild Fig is called Brennus, "a wanderer and wild man with many tales to tell" and you can watch a little video of him at the end of the post! Each genie is giving away prizes daily over on Imperial Leather's Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to check these out!

The Verdict
The Imperial Leather Foamburst Bewitching Blackberry and Wild Fig Luxurious Body Wash is definitely a product that stands out for me because of the formula and this is what makes it more "luxurious". I would recommend it if you want to try something different and like a multi-tasking product, because being able to use it as a body wash and a shaving product makes life a little easier and quicker! However if you can't get past the shaving foam concept then I would avoid. I would really like to try the Moisturising Almond and Honey Milk one next.
