I’ve been wanting to try the Bath & Body Works Mango Mandarin Moisturizing Shampoo for several years.
Finally after picking up the bottle and putting it back on the shelf, it ended up jumping into my loving arms…and then into the Bath & Body Works paper shopping bag. 😉
The main reason why I was really interested in trying out this shampoo was because citrus scents are really energizing, and that’s exactly what I appreciate in the mornings, especially now that the weather’s getting much warmer.

Bath & Body Works Mango Mandarin Moisturizing Shampoo Review
To me, the Mango Mandarin Moisturizing Shampoo by Bath & Body Works smells mainly of mandarin, but sometimes I think I can smell a tinge of mango. (Perhaps it’s the power of suggestion? But, I really think it has a hint of it.)
The scent is invigorating and of moderate strength. And even after you rinse it out and dry your hair, a bit of the scent still lingers slightly. It’s pleasant, and it’s definitely not strong enough to compete with an eau de parfum that you may be sporting.
I really enjoyed how much this shampoo lathers. Okay, I know that the more a shampoo lathers, the worse it is for your hair because that means it’s harsh, but I can’t help associating a good lather with cleanliness. I enjoy the plentiful suds. :S
The Bath and Body Works Mango Mandarin Moisturizing Shampoo leaves my hair feeling very clean and fresh. However, it certainly doesn’t moisturize my hair. You see, my hair is a major troublemaker. And it’s very needy. The two make for a difficult combination. My hair needs intense moisture to have any noticeable effect.
When I used this solo (i.e. without any conditioner), my hair felt really dry. Then again, that’s the nature of my hair – I always need to use conditioner for it to feel soft, silky, and shiny.
According to the label, the finished product isn’t tested on animals. However, that means that the unfinished product was probably tested on animals!
Final Verdict: 8/10
Overall, I enjoyed using this Bath & Body Works shampoo because it smelled great (a major plus when I take a shower in the morning and need to wake up) and it left my hair feeling clean.
Its moisturizing effect wasn’t strong enough for my hair, so I definitely need a good conditioner after using this or my hair feels like straw and gets tangled easily.
I would recommend you try this, though, because at just $4 a bottle on sale, it’s a good deal and it’s a pleasant scent.
What shampoo are you using now? Do you always use conditioner? How complicated or simple is your hair routine?
