Beauty Bite: NEW gud from Burt's Bees Mango Moonbreeze Body Wash

Mango Moonbreeze is a brand new scent that gud (from the makers of Burt's Bees) has rolled out for 2014. As with the other scents in the gud family, Mango Moonbreeze is available in body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. This new line is now on the Target website but if you haven't seen it in Target stores yet, keep checking--it should be there soon.

I received the new Mango Moonbreeze Body Wash for review, and you know I love my body washes, so let's see how this one worked for me.

Burt's Bees can be playful, but I find gud to be even more playful in their marketing and packaging:

I haven't tried scanning this bottle with my phone yet, but I love the idea that they'll send you a "gudee"...

PROS

  • Abundant, long-lasting lather after just an average-sized squirt onto a bath pouf.
  • Beautiful fragrance (to me it smells predominately of mango, with a sweet jasmine background).
  • Rinses easily and leaves skin feeling soft yet clean with no residue.
  • No parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals in this formula.

CONS
  • The fragrance is strong and long-lasting, which could be a "pro" if you like stronger fragrances (which I do). The scent of this body wash lingers on my skin for hours after my shower.
  • The formula could be a little drying if you already have very dry skin (I didn't experience any dryness but my skin is not super dry to begin with).

THE LAST BITE: For $6.99 (or less if you catch it on sale), this is a fun new body wash that I find myself reaching for in the shower. The fragrance is the biggest selling point for me--it's mouth-watering but not sickly-sweet. If you like mango and you like jasmine, I have a feeling you're going to absolutely adore this one. I also love the abundant lather that this body wash produces, and its ability to thoroughly cleanse my skin and not leave any oily residue behind. Like I mentioned above, I could see how this body wash might be a tiny bit drying if you already have dry skin, but in the warmer months, I don't see that being a problem for most of us. If you're already a gud fan, I would certainly add this to your list of "must-try" products. And if you're new to gud, this would be a nice product to start with (unless you're super sensitive to fragrance, because this one's pretty strong and it does linger on the skin for hours after your shower).

Are you a gud fan? Have you seen the new Mango Moonbreeze line in your area yet?

  1. Great review, G. I've never tried this brand but I might have to pick this up next time I'm at Target...

  2. I just found this at my local Target, and only got the shampoo. The conditioner smelled very alcohol-y and I have a backup bottle of Pearanorml Activity conditioner so I'll "pear" it with that...see what I did there?lol. I've been anxiously awaiting this line, as I first spotted it upstate ny at a Target when all they had was the shampoo, so I guess I waited on the cond. for nothing. Target had coupons attached to the bottle w a rubberband type thingy, so I think I scored $1.50 off! The "G├╝ddee" was nothing much, just brought me to the website...there was an offer for a free wallpaper...not sure if that was the goody? Anyway, now my phone has a MangoM00nbreeze wallpaper...pretty!

  3. OMG after reading this last night I had to run out and buy this today. I needed another shower gel anyway as I am running low. This just might be the ticket to help with the winter blues -- I can't wait to try it in the shower tomorrow. I noticed that this one seemed to be $1 more than the other flavors of Gud shower gel at my Target, and they didn't have any of the coupons on them either. I bought it anyway.

  4. Nice review! I tried the hand cream in a different scent, Orange Petalooza, and it wasn't very moisturizing. But, I picked it up from Ulta on clearance after Thanksgiving for 87 cents!
