About My Skin: Often dry and scaly
The skin on my body usually gets the short end of the stick—I know I should, but I rarely take care of it as meticulously as I do the skin on my face. As such, it’s often pretty dry and scaly. I rely on super hydrating body washes and lightweight lotions to keep it properly moisturized and protected, even when I skip a day or two of applications. That’s why I love the Plus Body Wash Sheets so much: They offer a potent dose of hydration with shea butter, sweet almond oil, and aloe leaf, and the soothing moisture feels like it lasts all day (with zero greasy residue).
The Feel: Thin sheets transform to big, luxurious foam
The most fun part of using this water-activated product is watching it transform from a thin sheet to a soft, luxurious foam as you use it in the shower. (That and watching the sachet completely dissolve at your feet.)
The Ingredients: Cleansing and nourishing agents
- Eucalyptus Leaf Oil: It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, plus studies have shown it may increase ceramide production and protect against damage caused by environmental aggressors.
- Shea Butter: This nourishing ingredient has so many incredible skin benefits, including hydration, skin-plumping, and even the ability to help fade scars (both from acne and non-acne-related causes), in addition to healing sunburned, cracked, and peeling skin.
- Aloe Leaf: Aloe is rich in vitamins, amino acids, polysaccharides, and phytosterols, so it’s incredibly calming, as well as prevents transepidermal water loss. Together, this promotes skin healing, hydration, and soothing skin irritation.
- Sweet Almond Oil: Almond oil is a vitamin E– and antioxidant-rich extract that helps to reduce irritation and UV damage. It can even reduce the look of stretch marks. It’s also an incredible ingredient to lock in lasting moisture.
The Scent: Neroli, lemon, and orange
This scent makes me want to get up and get into the shower, which is a feat—let me tell you. It’s bright, light, and absolutely a treat for the senses. I love the other scent profiles the brand has to offer—coconut and jasmine is a delight—but this one really has me under its spell. It smells citrusy but sophisticated and like sunshine personified. It’s a wake-up call for your skin and your mind in equal measure.
The Sustainability: Completely dissolvable
These handy little sheets contain zero single-use plastic, 80% fewer CO2 emissions in shipping (versus liquid body wash), and 38% less water used in manufacturing. Here’s how: Plus Body Wash Sheets are wrapped in dissolvable wood pulp sachets (from responsibly managed FSC forests) that dissolve in the shower and slide down the drain. The ink on the packets is bio-renewable and FDA-approved. What’s more is that Plus’s outer packaging is 100% recyclable and made with FSC-certified paper. For what the company can’t reduce today, it offsets 110% via verified Pachama forest improvement projects (including the McCloud River project in California). On top of that, Plus donates 1% of every purchase to a nonprofit of your choice. It’s the real deal, folks.
The Results: Soft, cloud-like skin
To use Plus Body Wash Sheets, all you have to do is tear open the sachet (dry hands are best for this), hop in the shower, drop the sachet, let it dissolve, get the sheet wet, watch it lather up, and wash away. The experience is genuinely luxurious (thick lather; nice scents), and there’s zero waste when you’re done. Afterward, your skin doesn’t feel taut or dry like it can with other soaps, and the hydrated, glowing finish lasts through the day. That said, it doesn’t feel greasy or leave behind a film—just moisturized skin and absolutely zero waste.
The Value: Accessible and a great deal
Refills are $11 for the equivalent of 30+ washes—which is less than a dollar per shower. A dispenser starter pack is $15, and a travel pack of 10 sheets is just $7. Plus, the products are available at Target, making them easily accessible as well as incredibly affordable.
I am a Plus convert. These little sustainable sheets offer a luxurious shower experience and a happiness-inducing scent, and they’re easy to travel with as well. They’re a purchase you can feel good about, and they’ll leave your skin feeling clean, hydrated, and happy.
