Method Olive Leaf Body Wash

If you’re a regular reader of The Impulsive Buy, you may know that I’m a total Method fanboy. A Method product groupie, if you will.

So much so, that just like Motley Crue groupies from the 1980s, I would totally let Method products do lines of coke off of my ass.

What can I say? I love the curves of Method product bottles. The concentrated laundry detergent bottles have a nice hourglass shape. While the hand soap bottles have big, round baby-making hips.

Also, Method products are biodegradable and aren’t tested on animals, and when it comes to protecting nature and the environment, I’m all for it…except when it comes to those damn dirty duck-billed platypuses.

Damn freaks of nature!

They’re like the result of a duck, alligator, and mole threesome.

Method products are a bit more expensive, but sometimes you have to pay more for quality. Like if you want to drive something nice, don’t buy a Hyundai, buy a Mercedes. If you want to drink something nice, don’t buy wine that comes from a box, buy wine that comes from Napa Valley. Also, if you want good cocaine, don’t get it from Bolivia, get it from Colombia.

However, as much as I love Method products, I have to admit that it is hard for me to like this Method Olive Leaf Body Wash. I’ve used it for a week straight and it lathered up nicely and it made me clean, but I can’t get over the fact that it made me smell like black pepper.

I’m surprised I didn’t sneeze from the scent.

Since it’s hard for me to defend the Method Olive Leaf Body Wash, I’m going to have to turn in my Method Fanboy Card, along with my Method Fanboy Decoder Ring.

I guess I could compare the Method Olive Leaf Body Wash with the 2000 Motley Crue album New Tattoo. Both were over-hyped, didn’t reach fan expectations, and were significantly less exciting than Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s sex tape.

Despite how crappy that album was, the members of Motley Crue today could still do lines of coke off of the asses of groupies. After all, they are Motley “Fucking” Crue!

Although, I can’t say the same for the Method Olive Leaf Body Wash. I wouldn’t let it do lines of coke off of my ass, but because it’s a Method product, I’d totally let it feel me up.

    I love the smell of black pepper and I love method products. I admire your honesty, but I may have to go against your warnings and give it a try. Does it come in any other scents?

    I am a lover of Method as well.
    I bought a 4 bottle gift set on clearance aftger Xmas that had the Olive Leaf, two fruity shower gels and Lavendar body wash. The Lavendar is much nicer than the Olive Leaf but I have not been able to find it since. Very moisturizing for winter months.

    Toni – Damn, this not having a Trader Joe’s here.

    Rbbbn – Nah, platypuses. But not platypussies.

    Kim – I’ve been using the Mango Mint and at first I didn’t like it, but it’s sort of grown on me. Thank goodness watching MTV’s Sweet Sixteen hasn’t.

    Lizzy – Hi! Welcome to the Impulsive Buy. Just to let you know, I don’t have a personality in real life.

    Webmiztris – Maybe if I took a bath in the ocean I could blend the two.

    Caroline – They’re waaay too easy to drink, which makes me easy as well.

    Mia – OH GOD, if I had a picture of that, I would sell it to the Enquirer and make a little loot.

    kiki – I’m going to need a whole lot more than Burt’s Bees products to attract the hot chicks. I’ll probably need to wax my entire body, floss my teeth, and not eat so many beans.

    Scott-O-Rama – I guess that would make me a Methodist. Oh, I hope Buddha isn’t going to mad at me.

    Amber LB – I know. I know. The vodka review. I don’t write well when drunk. Oh, if I could channel Ernest Hemmingway.

    Karen – Üm, I was too lazy to figüre it oüt. Sorry, aboüt that.

    bloghungry – It comes in several scents, like Mango Mint, Cassis Flower, and Lavender Thyme.

    Allison – I would try the lavender one, but it seems too girly for me. Oh wait, I once used a Veet product to remove my leg hair, I guess it’s really not too girly for me.
