It's the first perfectly square bottle in our shower, ever. We've just spent the past week putting Method Bloq's (not blog) new skincare line through it's paces and liked it.

It's a little confusing to keep track of at first because everything looks the same, but this new line features four products (body wash, shave cream, soap and moisturizing lotion) in four different scents (citron leaf, beach sage, green mint and water flower).

The various lotions and liquids are all totally eco sensitive, but refreshingly tingly and attractively scented. They are not heavy or cloying, went on and washed off easily. Each one was very different as well, and we found ourselves changing our minds as to which "flavor" we liked best.

The body wash, soap and lotion were the best, while the shave cream left a little to be desired. It was thin and not very effective at protecting our precious face. We wouldn't switch here.

The biggest problem we had was with the innovative, square packaging. While we know that Method always has cool packaging, we found these square bloq's just oozed a non-eco "plastic" feeling, which was hard to get over. While they sat well on our bath shelf, they also didn't fit in with our other products and didn't win for looks. They reminded us of milk boxes at school. However, that is a totally subjective criticism, and we are sure there are those out there (especially gym rats - they fit well into a locker) who will praise the shape and love the difference.
