I admit that I am tough to please when it comes to aromas and even tougher to please when it comes to body wash. However, the combination of Nivea, Cream Oil, Shea Butter and Vanilla was too good to pass up especially with the winter dry skin blues upon me. So with coupon in hand I purchased Nivea Body Wash Touch of Harmony Cream Oil. Nivea Body Wash Touch of Harmony Cream Oil is soft and silky and so much fun to use in the shower. You simply pour some on your wash cloth or loofah. It doesn't lather a lot, but how much do you really need to get clean. The first thing you notice is the relaxing aroma of shea butter and vanilla, the next thing is how silky smooth this body wash is on your skin. Nivea Body Wash Touch of Harmony Cream Oil is soothing, silky, calming to my skin and senses and not as expensive as the [Philosophy Gingerbread] that I also enjoy. It's definitely a keeper. My only disappointment is that soon after my skin is dry and itchy again - my husband pointed out that it IS winter, but I explained that's no excuse - to get five stars with me it better moisture my skin a whole lot longer after my shower, not just in it! : http://www.viewpoints.com/Philosophy-The-Gingerbread-Man-reviews Effectiveness After using you feel clean, soothed and refreshed. Scent The scent lingers in the bathroom for a little while and slightly on your skin but not enough to interfere with your other beauty rituals like lotion or perfume.
