Sea Breeze Body Shampoo Cool & Deodorant: a Mini Review

Sorry for the massive gap in posts, the struggle to get wordpress to upload photos or any other graphics has been real, let me tell you. WHYYYYYYY wordpress, why? Anyway, on to the Sea Breeze …

Anyway, I’ve had this ginormous vat of body wash for a while, and now that I’m about halfway through the bottle, I feel very comfortable offering my thoughts on Sea Breeze body shampoo.

Sea Breeze

I have seen this product for a while, and have gone through several bottles of the Sea Breeze body splash deodorants (including my bottles being used by friends as a sort of joke on other girls, as the cooling factor in them is quite, errr, refreshing). But I’m lazy, and bar soap is my usual go-to for home cleansing. I know bar soaps can be drying for some, but I don’t usually have an issue with them.

But … what I do have an issue with, is being stinky. I typically work out a good bit, and I live in a very hot and humid environment that I am totally not acclimated to, even now (I moved from Alaska to Okinawa, y’all). To add insult to injury, my skin doesn’t tolerate anti-perspirants AT ALL. They send me  into a giant itch fest, manically clawing at my armpits in public. AKA, way more embarrassing than sweating.

So, I found after moving here almost five years ago, that my old deodorants didn’t cut the mustard (like, at all). Also, less-than-daily showering didn’t cut it, either. I found a deodorant that works for me better than anything on the planet (Soft Stone btw) but still, I was generating more stink quicker than I (anyone) preferred.

Enter the Sea Breeze deodorant body shampoo. To cut to the chase, yes, this is a win and yes, you should buy it. Why? First, it’s a giant vat of product (with a pump!) for a low price. Second, despite advertising being cooling and deodorizing, it doesn’t dry my skin out at all. What it does do, and do well, is cleanse my skin thoroughly (without stripping it) and keep me stink-free longer than not using it.

Scent: in line with most Japanese products, there is a very slight minty scent  while using it, but it does  not cling or linger on your skin after using it. Feel: not heavily moisturizing, but not stripping at all. Has a short-term, low-key minty tingle for your skin. After effect: lives up to its deodorant claim and staves off BO longer than any other body wash or soap I’ve used, to include American products marketed for men (manly men!).

Because Japan, you can buy little refill pouches too, making it even more economical if you decide to repurchase.


Will I repurchase? YES. Who would I recommend it for? Anybody but the most sensitive-skinned, and particularly for active people, this should work well for the whole family.
