Neutrogena makes wonderful products. I especially like the Neutrogena Rainbath shower gel. I don't buy it as often as I used to because it is one of those items I can comfortably do without. When I do splurge however, usually when I have a coupon, I buy this. It has a very mild scent and it is soothing to my skin. My skin feels moisturized after showering and I often times do not have to apply lotion. If you prefer shower gels to soap, this might be a good one to try.

Neutogena has a website that sometimes has coupons and promotions. If not, look for the Sunday insert in the newspaper. When they do put out coupons, they are of a good amount off the product. I appreciate the fact that Neutrogena anticipates the needs of consumers and puts out coupons so I can try their products without it affecting my budget too severely. Even though this prouduct is not a must have, it is a nice little splurge occasionally.

**This product in a nutshell: **just doesn't knock my socks off.  My bathing ritual is a very important part of my day and I want a body wash to do 2 things: 1) Smell awesome on ME, not just in the bottle and 2) pamper my skin while making me feel super clean and refreshed.  Neutrogena Ranbath Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel is just an average body wash to me!

I have to hand it to Neutrogena...On a cold whiff, Rainbath smells ridiculously amazing!  The scent is exotic, spicy and intoxicating...the type of smell that made me want to run and take a shower ASAP.  I squeezed 3 pumps into my wet body pouf and lathered up.  This bath gel works up into a good lather and made me so happy as the smell exploded into the steamy air, but falls short when I use it as a bubble bath.  It barely bubbles when I pour it into the running water!  Though this product rinses clean without a hint of residue, I barely smell it on me.  With such a strong aromatic presence in the bottle, I thought for sure the translation to my skin would be more noticeable, but no!  What a dissapointment!

My skin certainly doesn't feel dirty at all when I use this product, though I do not feel refreshingly clean like I do when I use other body washes from Dial or my weakness: Bath & Body Works.  Plus, this stuff is pretty expensive for a drug store product.  Some claim this product works well as a shaving gel for legs, but I still had razor bumps.  All in all, this was just an average product for me!

**I give this product 3/5 stars because:** it's just OK.  I really wanted to love it more because it smells fabulous.  I just wanted it to smell fabulous on ME!

I like that this comes in large containers

By 

from USA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

I really like this because they come in large sizes. I usually buy the biggest size and keep using it for ages. It's easy to keep in the bathtub without it falling off because it sits nice and heavy and the pump is very effective so you don't have problems using this for a long time. You also don't have to open the bottle every time you use it so it's easy to use. The scent can be a bit strong (I actually prefer the grapefruit one) so may bother some. Try the smaller bottles before you use the large ones. The container is also useful after you finish the body soap. I had three identical containers one with soap, one with shampoo and one with conditioner - it was useful in organizing this way so everything came out of a pump.

Effectiveness
Very effective and efficient because you can buy in large sizes.

Scent
The scent is a bit masculine (a bit like after shave) so you might not like it if you like sweet scents.

Neutrogena Rainbath is a good body wash for dry skin.

By 

from USA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

Neutrogena Rainbath is a good body wash for dry skin. After using it, my skin feels clean and soft and not dried out at all. We each have a different quality of water in our homes. In the part of the country I live in, the water is very hard with lots of minerals. We use a water softener to improve the quality of our water. A few months ago, our water softener quit working. There was a 3 week period when we did not have a water softener. During that time, my regular body wash wasn't working well for me. So I tried Neutrogena Rainbath. It really did a good job!

The lather this body wash makes is rich and creamy. It feels very nice on my skin. And when rinsed off (even with very hard water), my skin feels soft and smooth. With hard water, my regular body wash left my skin feeling kind of sticky. But I had much better results with the Neutrogena.

The scent is ok. I don't love it and I don't hate it. It isn't floral or fruity. I would describe it as a "natural" scent. It smells a little woody or like a forest. It would be appropriate for men or women.

When my water softener was repaired, I did go back to my regular body wash because I prefer its scent. But Neutrogena Rainbath was a great product for me when I needed it!

Leaves you clean and smelling good

By 

from USA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

Neutrogena Rainbath leaves you clean, smelling good, and feeling good and fresh. It's a decent sized bottle so it will last awhile (and it's tall so you don't have to bend over as far to get some out), it has a pump so it's easy to get the product out, and the value is great.
It is for both men and women as the scent isn't too overly masculine or sweet and fruity for a female. It has a good balance of scent and the pump gives you the perfect amount to use.

Effectiveness
I love using Neutrogena Rainbath because I always feel clean and smell good after using it. It doesn't take a lot either to get the job done. Use a loofa and 1 squirt will be perfect to lather up and wash your body with.

Scent
This product smells very good and the scent also lasts awhile after you have used it. It doesn't disappear like some products. I would also recommend it for men because it isn't fruity, flowery smelling (although they do make fruity or flowery smelling Neutrogena Rainbath products).

A nice body wash

By 

from USA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

I enjoy trying out all the different products available on the market. So I am happy to report that the Neutrogena Rainbath is now a household favorite. I especially love the packaging in the giant bottle and smooth pump. The scent could be better, but it is tolerable. I love how it makes my skin feel so I will continue to use this product for years to come.

Effectiveness
This body wash is perfect for individuals who have very dry skin. It gently cleans without over drying and leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed. It is also great for sensitive skin and acne prone skin.

Scent
I am rating this product a nine out of ten on the scent because the fragrance formulation was changed a few years ago. I adored the original scent but I don't mind the current scent. I do have a very sensitive nose and cannot tolerate harsh scents. I am happy to report that this body wash has a very refreshing, light, outdoorsy scent that does not linger. My husband even likes the scent of this body wash, so I would say it is good for men too. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

I really like this as a bubble bath!

By 

from USA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

This bath and shower gel has a fresh, clean scent. I was so excited when I read on the bottle that you can use the gel as a bubble bath. It bubbles up nicely in the bath tub and makes for a luxurious bath. I also use it has shower gel from time to time, but I don't like the smell as much as other shower gels I have for that purpose.

Effectiveness
After using this bath and shower gel I feel clean and refreshed. It works very well as a bubble bath, which is the use that I like it for. I just pump a little into running water and in moments it is foaming up nicely. I highly recommend this product for that purpose.

Scent
I have a love slash like relationship with the scent. For a bubble bath I love the scent. However, for a shower gel I feel like the scent is too "manly" for me. The smell does last long after you shower, which is a good thing if you are looking for a long lasting fragrance from a shower gel. Overall, I think its a great shower and bath gel. I just think it's better for men than women!

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

A lot of the body washes that I use in the shower don't quite work. They definitely don't bring me a refreshing feeling. As for the way this particular product makes me feel, I was impressed. It smelled nice, not particularly like anything, but just leaving me fresh.

Neutrogena Rainbath is the best soap out there!

By 

from Erie, PA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

I love Neutrogena Rainbath and have grown up using it since my mother used it and it's one of the few products I can use that doesn't dry out my skin. I love Neutrogena products they can be a bit expensive but they really do work so it's well worth it.

Effectiveness
This soap is great and is always in my house. I don't use it everyday, only on special occasions, because it's a bit pricey but it really is worth it. Rainbath has a great lather to it, a little goes a long way as my mother always said, and it smells great too. It helps with

Scent
I love the smell of Neutrogena Rainbath! My mother used this soap when I was younger so the scent of it always reminds me of her and of my childhood.

An Indulgent Experience

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

The first time I used Neutrogena Rain Bath Shower Gel was when my husband and I were spending the night in a high end hotel. When I poured some of the thick amber colored gel into my hands and started to work up a lather, I went "Ahhhhh!! What IS this stuff?" It smelled amazing. Very rich and expensive smelling.

The 32 ounce bottle is clear so I can see when I am running low, and it has a really nice pump on the top that makes less of a mess in the shower. I love rich scents that have a musk undertone, and this one really hits the nail on the head. Neutrogena describes the scent as spicy, herbal and fruity. I think it's mostly spicy.

Not only does this smell amazing (and that's what keeps me buying it again and again), but it cleans well and moisturizes the skin. It only takes two pumps on a scrubber to clean my entire body, so the bottle lasts a very long time (and I don't use this every time I shower as I have other products in my shower as well).

Because it is more expensive I always watch for sales or ask for this when my birthday rolls around. This year I'm asking hubby to buy it for Christmas. The wonderful scent is hard to describe, and smells like a high end perfume. The scent does linger for several hours after I get out of the bath or shower so I don't even need to appy perfume.

This product also doubles quite nicely as a bubble bath. I squirt two or three pumps under the faucet as I am filling up the tub and it makes a lot of bubbles, but the bubbles don't last as long as other bubble bath products. And it takes more of it to get the bubbles, so I always feel like I am wasting it.

To conclude, I absolutely LOVE Neutrogena Rainbath Shower & Bath Gel. It smells amazing and it cleans and moisturizes nicely.

Effectiveness
Cleans well, moisturizes and leaves my body smelling amazing.

Scent
Amazing, rich and spicy scent that is very high end. Keeps me coming back again and again.

Look forward to using it in the shower & versatile!

By 

from Flushing, NY

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

I really enjoy using this product. I am a scent fanatic and love mostly floral type scents. This isn't floral at all, suitable for both sexes. The best way I can think of is generally a classic type scent that I won't ever tire of. It's clean but not crisp but yet it refreshes, awakens you in the morning. I had this for a long time, forgot about it - lost in the closet. I'm sure some of you get what I mean. Anyhow, digging for shower gel I'd thought this product would be bad but it lasted! It lathers very nicely on my shower pouff and moisturizes well. I always slather on body lotion after a shower, what I noticed using rainbath is that my skin was not as dry as using other shower washes/gels. Thanks to everyone who commented how else they've successfully used this (shaving gel, facial cleanser, shampoo)..will probably test the other applications soon.

Scent
great invigorating scent for anyone, not overpowering

Neutrogena Rainbath my favorite product

By 

from Ellwood City, PA

Comments about Neutrogena Rainbath:

I love Neutrogena products in general, however I always have Neutragena Rainbath in my home even though it is a bit pricey. I use it sparingly until I get a good buy on it and restock. I am in that position now and I will be looking for a good deal on a large bottle. This product washes the whole body and leaves you soft and smelling great. I love it as a shampoo as well and it is the only product that I use to bath my cats and dogs. I love how it rinses off clean but still leaves skin, hair and pets coats soft, shinny and fresh smelling. I do not like changes when it comes to a product that I believe to be already perfect and this is the case with Neutragena Rainbath original scent. I decided not to buy the orange scent that is apparently new because I just love the original fresh, earthy scent and I am not willing to change. So as soon as the original scent of Neutrogena Rainbath is available to me where I shop and when I am shopping I will be restocking because this is the very best body wash product out there and it is affordable although I would appreciate a good deal on it.

 

Effectiveness
I use this to bath my pets because it rinses off easily and leaves a clean, fresh, long lasting softness.

Scent
I love the scent of both the original and the grapefruit but I think the grapefruit is too strong and has caused me some sinus problems, therefor I prefer the original scent which does not bother me at all. I totally enjoy it.
