No longer worth buying

I had used this product for over 10 years on the advice of a GP as a low irritant soap alternative, but I can no longer recommend it. As a long term customer, I can advise that this product has now been significantly watered/thinned down and it runs between my fingers before I can even apply it to my skin. The product quality has gone from high to low and I've stopped using it.

Best skin wash on the market

I have not been able to use soaps on my skin exposed to the sun for decades due to a medical condition. QV Body Wash is the best soap alternative on the market. Both QV and Cetaphil make a gentle wash lotion that is for people with extremely bad skin, but I found them both to be too weak. The QV wash lotion is almost as good as soap and does the job. Best to pump the lotion onto a small wash cloth and spread it around a bit to 'soap' up, and then use the cloth - otherwise it uses up too quickly if you only use hands. Show details

Life changing for those with sensitive skin

I had extremely severe atopic dermatitis and all sorts of ongoing skin conditions. After trying SO many products and having nothing work, a dermatologist recommended the QV range for my body. After a week of using only QV products to wash and moisturise my body, my skin issues had disappeared! Can not recommend enough!! Very hydrating and nice and thick to massage in. Show details

We use this product with confidence knowing that we will have a great shower / bath and feel fresh and clean and No Itchy residue like we used to get with Soaps. We also use the Shampoo too. Great Products and affordable too with the family budget. Can buy at any Woolies or Pharmacy. Chemist Warehouse always have great specials and that is where we buy in bulk and stock up and Save money. Ego QV is for ME Show details

Great for sensitive skin

Works amazing on my extremely sensitive skin! Doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky or greasy which is what I love! Great for babies with sensitive skin too and has a wide range of products ! Show details

Had skin rashes!

I thought this would help my eczema but worsen it instead. I used it on my face and my eyelids got suddenly sore and red. I stopped using it and the rash went away. I used it again after several days to confirm if I was really allergic to rash and found out that yeah it irritates my eye everytime I use it. I made my research and this product contains STYLENE and this chemical may cause eye irritation. Show details

Causes skin irritation

I really wanted to like this product because QV is a good brand but this wash made the skin on my groin feel like it was burning (as if there was a menthol or something in it) and with a week of use my skin was damaged leading to a fungal infection that took weeks to get rid of. It also gave a type of dandruff on my face and scalp. I do not understand why a manufacturer of products targeted at people with sensitive skin would apparently use an ingredient that causes these problems. Show details

Immediately gave rashes to my LOs

Immediately gave rashes to my LOs after first day of bath using QA.
Although it depends from person to person, doesn't recommend as we've seen bad reaction for our both LOs. Show details

GOD SEND

This wash has cured me of my dry and hydrated skin!! I was using loads of different lotions and potions on my skin after my shower but didn't think to change my soap until someone recommended QV. Since using this my skin has changed so much, I normally have dry, flakey and irritated skin but now I hardly even feel the need to put moisturiser on!! I would recommend using a sponge in the shower to help lather it up then it will last ages. Couldn't reccomend this product enough to all my fellow dry skin sufferers! Show details

Great if you also have skin conditions

I use this and so does my daughter. It is gentle on the skin and would recommend it esp if you have skin conditions like eczema. It doesnt have any smell. Show details

Love this stuff

I always buy this as it’s gentle enough to use with my little niece and doesn’t dry out my skin. I find I get some lumps on my skin (i.e. chicken skin - not the scientific term) when I use body wash with fragrances.

awful

This shower gel smell very bad, it is the worst soap free shower gel I have ever tried. I feel bad and dirty after using it, please don't buy it you will loose your money (because it's expensive) and your skin will stink.

Outstanding product for the times

Since using this product my skin irritations have disappeared, irritations that have been with me for a number of years. It certainly is a great relief and my lifestyle has benefited accordingly.

Watered down

Watery. Takes several more pumps to wash than other washes. Minimum of thirty words so now I'm just filling up the box with superfluous words in order to post this.

Questions & Answers

Sami

Why is the QV Wash almost like Water now? It use to be nice and creamy and luxurious. I have been using QV wash for over 10 years - but this year (2023) - absolute water, that’s it. Pours out of the pump without even pumping it.
Why change a product that the majority of consumers were so happy with? Is this purely for money making? Won’t be buying it anymore.

I have a container of QV body wash and have used about a third. It is now watery. Why? I tried shaking it and it makes no difference. I have been using this product for years and never had this issue. Why?

No, you don't need to use soap with QV.

QV **is** your soap!

We find it best to use with a loofah glove eg Manicare Exfoliating Gloves
