It's a nice creamy body wash. It does foam up some. It feels very soothing and moisturizing at first, then when it rinses off it feels a little different. I would n't say dry or tacky or that it leaves a film or anything like that, just more of a clean feeling, but that feeling goes away when you towel off and you're left with soft skin. But, it's the ingredients in the wash that moisturizer skin long term and create healthier skin that set it apart. Personally, I tend to use a little too much so it does n't last very long, but I do that with all body washes. I like the consistency though, it allows you to use only a small amount and still foam it up. I found it best to foam by applying to damp skin rather than foaming in hand first. It's great if you're looking for a fragrance free, truly hypo-rallergenic body wash without irritating ingredients. I would probably buy again.
