We’re starting to wrap up our final review for the entire line of SBR Sports body care products. We recently published our final review of the TriSwim Shampoo and Conditioner. In the coming days, you’ll see final reviews of the TriSwim Body Lotion and TriSlide, a spray on body lubricant.
Today, we’ll discuss the TriSwim Body Wash, produced by SBR Sports. Please check out our initial review of the TriSwim Body Wash. You can purchase TriSwim Body Wash from many retailers or order directly from SBR Sports. TriSwim Body Wash retails for $13.20 for a 8oz tube.
Background on SBR Sports:
SBR Sports was established in 2003 by Karen Allard. Karen is a triathlete and USAT Certified Coach. Through her training, she became aware of the damage chlorine and other chemicals cause to athletes’s hair and skin. After using many available products, Karen decided to start her own line of products to assist athletes facing the same issues.
Background on TriSwim Body Wash:
The folks at SBR love aloe and it shows in their ingredients list. Aloe is a great ingredient for tackling the smell and damage of chlorine on your skin and in your hair. The use of aloe in the TriSwim Shampoo contributes to it’s ability to clean and moisturize your hair after a pool session and the inclusion of aloe in this body wash promises the same results for your skin. In addition to the aloe, the TriSwim Body Wash also contains Vitamins A and E and Pro-Vitamin B5.
Testing TriSwim Body Wash:
As we mentioned in our initial review, we’ve only used TriSwim Body Wash after our swim workouts. We decided to take this approach because we wanted to conserve our sample and only judge the TriSwim Body Wash on it’s performance in cutting chlorine damage and odor.
Our testers enjoyed the light citrus scent. The citrus was a bit of a change, especially for our male tester, but both testers soon developed an affinity for the light scent. The citrus scent covered or eliminated the smell of chlorine without being too overpowering.
We also carried the TriSwim with us on various trips, testing it’s performance in various water conditions. In most cases, the TriSwim lathered up very well with a limited amount of product applied to our sponge. Only once did TriSwim Body Wash fail to lather well, but that was due to unusually hard water that prevented all soap and shampoo from lathering.
In all testing situations TriSwim Body Wash did a good job removing the smell of chlorine from our skin. As mentioned in our initial review, we used the body wash in different situations to test it’s effectiveness. Some days we used the body was immediately after we left the pool, some days we returned home before using the body wash, and other times we waited up to four hours before using the body wash. In all situations, TriSwim Body Wash removed most, if not all, of the chlorine odor left on our skin after swimming.
Both testers usually use Dove bar soap to mitigate the drying effect of high levels of chlorine. We have found Dove to be the most effective bar soap in the battle against chlorine damage. After using an entire tube of the TriSwim Body Wash, we observed that our skin was at least as moisturized and soft as when using Dove bars. On our busiest weeks we swam 3-4 mornings and never noticed dry skin or itching when using the TriSwim Body Wash.
Overall Thoughts on TriSwim Body Wash:
Both testers were impressed with TriSwim Body Wash. Though generally skeptical of marketing claims, the body wash actively removed and mitigated the smell of chlorine. Even after continued use, we didn’t experience any dry skin issues or itching from the chlorine. We believe the vitamins and ingredients are effective at neutralizing the odor and the damage caused by chlorine.
