The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Shower Gel Review

*Guest Post by Pallavi Bose*

Hello lovelies….

ABOUT: How you are all in this scorching sun….The temperature is rising like anything in most of the parts of India.  And i always rush to ice-creams, AC rooms and my shower place. U know I adore my shower place during summers. Can you believe my too be hubby once asked me what I would like as my marriage gift…and I said my big red bathtub…and he thought naughty naughty….and I was like I won’t share it….Ii just spend half an hour just standing below shower…it’s so relieving and prepares me for the tiring office hours.  So, I just love bathing and so I love shower gels….I look for shower gels which are refreshing. And I have used a lot of shower gels trust me.. Lux, Nivea, Palmolive, M&S and many…..all they were just fine…nothing too exceptional…But then only I came through this wonder bottle and I just felt wowww….

Let me introduce you to the best brand in terms of Bath care essentials. I have used and loved their loofas and now comes the turn of shower gels. This is my first shower gel from TBS. I just love this brand. I am quite looking forward to try their skin care range so, you can wait for more products from TBS.

Now, Here comes my favourite the superhero…(Yess i know quite dramatic) THE BODY SHOP SWEET LEMON SHOWER GEL.

What TBS says about this product???

Our new Sweet Lemon range benefits from skin-caring lemon seed oil, which is high in anti-oxidants, vitamin C and has excellent moisturizing properties. The Body Shop sources this oil from handpicked lemons from trees that grow abundantly in the Italian Riviera. The luscious oil is obtained by cold pressing the lemon seeds that are leftover from the fruit processing industry, seeds and oil which might otherwise go to waste.

The products also feature a range of moisturizing Community Trade ingredients, such as cocoa butter, shea butter and soy oil which helps to support marginalized communities around the world, by ensuring the producers get a fair deal for these high quality natural ingredients. So by caring for your skin, you’re also caring for others. Best if you want to: Enjoy the rich lather of a soap-free, non-drying cleansing gel that leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed and delicately scented with an uplifting citrus fragrance.

 Suits : All skin types

How it works :

Lemon seed oil is high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C and moisturizes and softens the skin. Community trade honey from Zambia is an effective moisturizer that helps to repair the skin’s moisture, smoothness and suppleness.

How to use : Use in the shower to create a moisturizing lather. Rinse off thoroughly.

PRICE : Rs.395 for 250 ml.

PACKAGING: The bottle of shower gel is of plastic material. Even if it falls on ground it will not break and I really like this. Because I constantly keep on dropping products.

The bottle is transparent with a small screw opening on its top. This screw top has a small hole to allow the shower gel to pass through it. Now, when shower gel comes out it is thick in texture.

Shade : The gel is also transparent in color with a tint of lemon color. The fragrance is just wowww…I love it..i love lemons and so this fragrance is heavily citrusy. It is just like something which awakens your senses. If you are the one who have to force your eyes in the morning then this is perfect. It refreshes me till within and leaves me completely energetic, fresh and full of life.

 My views:

This shower gel is little price wise on higher side as compared to regular shower gels but it lasts for close to 4.5-5 months whereas the regular shower gels lasts only 2.5-3 months. So, in that way its’s economical.

Now, I dropped some of the gels on the loofah as it spread quite easily on loofah as well as on my body. It feels so soft and slippery on body. My body is completely filled with citrusy smell and fresh feeling. The thick texture of gel makes the product used quite less. So, in this way bottle lasts too long.

It effectively does the exfoliating job. It cleanses the body without making it dry. Oily skinned ladies can easily skip moisturizers in summer. I myself blessed with toooo dry skin apply only a light moisturizer. My body feels very soft post application of this gel.

RATING– 4.5 /5

RECOMMENDATION – this shower gel had worked just too good for me. So, in my view if you are bored with your regular shower gels and if you don’t bother the smell of lemon do give this a try.

It is a must try from my side.
