Cynthia is a gardening enthusiast. She has a green thumb and always plants a variety of items for harvesting during gardening season.
As someone who loves natural products with natural ingredients, I was excited when I found Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products. They are not a new company by any means, though I only personally recently discovered them. I decided to try out the new honeysuckle scent moisturizing body wash with essential oils. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products are free from a lot of chemicals that most people are trying to avoid these days. The company packages the products with at least 20% post-consumer plastics, reducing their impact on the environment. The product contents are biodegradable, and you are encouraged to recycle the packaging.
Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products are also 'Leaping Bunny Certified,' so you can rest assured that these products are cruelty-free and never tested on our furry friends. Now that I got a bit of the basics out of the way, let's move onto my personal experiences.
As with anything we always make first impressions based on overall looks, and any information listed on the packaging
At first glance, I noticed the label was very simple and not overly busy. It was easy to find and read all the information about the product. A nice crisp yellow label with green lettering. Nothing too flashy and very simple. I like it when products do not feel the need to add fluffer to their packaging. When I want to navigate labels for information, I do not want to spend 20 minutes just to find what I was looking for.
The bottle is 16 Fluid ounces, and at first glance, I thought that was a pretty standard size. The cap is very easy to open. Something I also look for in products because I do have issues with my hands. So being easy to open, especially in the shower, is a major plus for me. Then I decided to smell it, after all I had ordered online, so I was in the dark as to how it would actually smell.
Surprisingly the fragrance is not overwhelming at all as sometimes floral scents can be overpowering. It has a very sweet and fresh honeysuckle scent but just the right amount of fragrance. Light enough that it won't muddle any other products you may use after your shower. Yet a nice enough light fragrance that you can skip your perfume for the day if you choose.
I mentioned thinking that the product was a pretty standard size. My first impression was that perhaps the product was a bit expensive for the amount in the bottle. I originally thought that the product would likely not last as long as some other products. Surprisingly Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Honeysuckle body wash proved me totally wrong!
Even though this is a pretty standard 16-ounce bottle, I have been using it for weeks and barely put a dent in it at all, even with daily use. A little goes a long way with this body wash.
Let's talk about lather and suds for a minute. We all tend to associate the amount of lather with the amount of clean we get out of products. This body wash doesn't lather like your typical ones do. It still foams up, just not like a bubble bath explosion. There is an exceptionally clean feeling despite a lackluster lather.
I also noted that with the addition of the essential oils in this product that my skin is softer directly out of the shower. Even without using a moisturizing lotion after I get out of the shower. It is a very gentle body wash overall, and I experienced no irritation using it. Though I would suggest if you are new to essential oils to testing a small spot as with anything everyone reacts differently.
Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Body Wash Ingredients
|Made With||Does Not Have|
Plant Derived Ingredients
Aloe Vera Extract
If you notice in the table above, there a lot of natural ingredients to Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day body wash with none of the stuff that can be potentially drying. These ingredients can cause irritation and can be found in many products on the market. So if you ever wondered why no matter what your skin is always dry, check the ingredients of the products you are using.
Overall I am very pleased with my honeysuckle body wash. I get a nice crisp clean feeling while my skin is moisturized in the process. This is a great body wash for those who shower before bed since it contains Chamomile Extract it is naturally calming. A good choice for those needing something to help them relax before bed.
Mrs.Meyer's Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash runs under $8, and there are usually some discount options available on major retailer websites. I have been using it just shy of a month and only used about an inch's worth of product, even though I use it daily. In my opinion, since a little goes a long way, this is a great budget buy since it will last for a good while. I will likely not have to consider replacing it for about 3–4 months or so. If I were to guess, I would say based on what amount you (I) would use it work out to me spending just $2 a month on body wash!
A great body wash for someone who loves to feel clean and is looking for a product with more natural ingredients, a more environmentally and animal-friendly product. No complaints as I thoroughly enjoy the fragrance, the price is moderate to low when broken down by how much I am using with daily showers. I also enjoy that my skin is moisturized, and I can skip a daily lotion if I am in a hurry without worrying about my skin appearing less than soft and supple.
On a side note, my husband loves me using this. I think it is important to toss out observations from him from time to time. He has no problems pointing out products I use that he dislikes, so when he is impressed with something I feel like it is worth mentioning! He really loves the honeysuckle fragrance, and that means lots more cuddling on the couch. He loves it so much that watching chick flicks with me does not seem so much of a chore for him.

Glenn Stok I think I will try other scents in the body wash sometime soon. I do hope the lavendar was a good choice for you and you enjoyed it as much as i did the honeysuckle!

You convinced me to try this one. I used to use regular bar soap in the shower. But lately I’ve been trying different liquid body washes because the bar soap leaves a grime on the shower walls that is so hard to clean.
So far, many of the liquid body washes I've found contain preservatives such as sodium laurel sulfate—which is a carcinogen. I noticed that the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products do not contain those types of chemicals, so it’s definitely a safer product for long-term use.
I see they also have a lavender version, which is the one I’m going to try. I know you put a lot of emphasis on the honeysuckle, but I feel lavender is better for me. It’s just a personal choice. It’s nice that Mrs. Meyer's provides different scents to choose.

Cynthia, that sounds like a good product to buy and try for sure. Your review captured everything a product should be. I've heard of Mrs. Meyers over at Crowdtap, though I never got to be part of any sample missions. Thanks for sharing.
