Herbal Essences, Hello Hydration Review

I was given this sample to try and share my opinion via Crowdtap. If you haven’t joined yet , you should . You share your opinions about different brands and products and sometimes get to try great products .

I didn’t even know Herbal Essences had body washes so was excited to try it out.


I received Hello Hydration.


The first thing I did was open the bottle and to smell it. It smelled like coconuts .

It’s a blue gel .I wish it was a little thicker and lathered up more. I love when body washes are sudsy. Even though it didn’t lather the way I prefer it still left my skin clean and smelling great . I’m sure would be good for a bubble bath too.

As I was washing the coconut smell was very pleasant. It brought me back to being on the beach in Florida , soaking up the sun while drinking a cocktail listening to the waves crash. (Wish I was doing that now )

Quick video review Hello Hydration Review

I put on some cocoa lotion and I can still smell the coconut. This combo is amazing (it’s also nice alone)
The scent definitely puts me in a better mood and more relaxed. The body wash didnt dry out my skin, which is one thing I look out for when choosing scented bodywashes.


I would recommend this body wash just for the lovely scents.

They are about $3 for a 11oz bottle

Other scents they have :
Body burst- citrus
Happy go lather -roses
Honey, I smell good -honey & apricot
Totally twisted

The vegetarian dish that surprised me

My last meal I made from my Blue Apron box was the vegetarian dish
Roasted squash w/stewed white beans , gremolata & Brussel sprouts


So why was I surprised by this dish?
I don’t care for curry powder. Seems like many vegetarian dishes I have had , have too much curry powder in them. With this dish it was the perfect amount an the lemon really complimented it.

I don’t cook with butternut squash, mainly because it can be a pain. It is yummy though.

I haven’t eaten or cooked with Brussel sprouts in a long time. I think it’s because I was always forced to eat them as a kid , or at least until we got a dog . I have been wanting to cook with Brussel sprouts though. I had a slight obsession with kale chips , recently saw one with Brussel sprouts. I want try it !!

Another keeper.




Overall I did enjoy my Blue Apron experience. I liked that I was able to cook dishes I normally wouldn’t make. I liked that they give you all the ingredients that are measured & labeled . I like that you can skip weeks and see what is on the menu for the week. For me personally , I don’t think the price is in my budget right now. It’s $60 for 3 meals for 2 people.
