Texture and scent: The Body Wash is a delight. Each wash has a gel-oil hybrid texture and a different scent depending on the one you’re using. The eucalyptus is so invigorating, the sandalwood is so sensual and the fragrance free smells like sweet nothing.

How to use: Squeeze out the wash and lather it all over your body. Massage it for a rich, bubbly foam and rinse well.

My experience: The best body washes I’ve ever tried.

I truly haven’t tried anything like them. The moments I lather myself in Nécessaire are experiences. Invigorating in every sense of the word. I have a love for each wash, but a soft spot for eucalyptus. It’s healing to me. I love how much they lather and how softening they feel on the skin. A little goes a long way! I never thought I’d be investing in a body wash, but these are worth every cent. From the ingredients, packaging to the end result, it’s all love.

Texture and scent: The Body Lotion is fragrance free. The texture is a thin-thick, soft cream that feels lightweight yet nourishing when massaging it into the skin. (It doesn’t feel sticky which is so important to me!)

How to use: Squeeze out the lotion and massage it into the skin until absorbed.

My experience: A staple.

I actually didn’t like this lotion at first. I thought it just layed on top of my skin without absorbing in, but the more I used it and massaged it into the skin, the more I fell in love with it. It has so many wonderful skin-soothing properties and feels so smoothing after shaving. I love that it’s fragrance free which doesn’t lead to irritation. I’d definitely recommend this lotion if you’re looking for a nourishing body cream.

Texture and scent: The Sex Gel doesn’t smell like anything. The texture feels like a watery gel.

How to use: Remove cap to pump and dispense the product. Apply on areas as desired.

My experience: Stunning.

Firstly, I love how discreet the bottle is. Beautiful and sleek, The Sex Gel sits nicely on my vanity without question. In regards to the actual lube, it’s awesome. I don’t usually need lube, but I obviously wanted to try this one for the solemn fact that it’s clean and packed with goodness. I absolutely love it — it feels so cooling on application and allows for a really sensational glide.

I’d recommend this lube because it’s clean. Nécessaire is transparent with their ingredients and formulations, unlike other brands that formulate lubes with a bunch of chemicals. The Sex Gel feels great. Point blank.

Overall thoughts: Necessary. And inevitably, my favourite body care brand.

Showers after showers, washes, slathers and in times of play, it’s Nécessaire, and always will be. Yes to the washes, to the lotion and lube. I’m here for it all — from the products, ingredients all the way to their mission and inclusivity.
