Guest Review By Lucky

I like my shower to smell nice and fruity  as that gives a nice kick-start to the day. And what can be better than a strawberry shower gel to make my mornings smell yummy and fresh!

What product claims: This soap-free shower gel contains real strawberry seed oil. It has a deliciously sweet scent.

  • Soap-free
  • Lather-rich
  • Sweet strawberry scent

Ingredients:Aqua (Water), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, CocamidopropylBetaine, Cocamide DEA, Coco-Glucoside, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Glycine soja (Soybean Oil), Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Fragariavesca (Strawberry Juice), PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Propylene Glycol, Benzophenone-4, Disodium EDTA, Limonene, Cinnamal, Linalool, Citral, CI 17200, CI 14700

My Experience

This shower gel smells like real strawberries and not like artificial strawberry scents. It  has a runny consistency, which makes it bit difficult to use with only hands. It is easier to use when used on loofah, and this way a very small amount of product lathers very well. It gets washed easily and leaves no film on skin. My skin feels soft and refreshed after using this shower gel.

For winters I used to feel the need of a body lotion after using this but for summers I am able to avoid body lotions on some days and my skin still feels fine. So this shower gel may not add moisture to the skin, but it doesn’t dehydrate the skin of moisture either. It’s great for those quick summer showers where you want to a quick freshen up and head out the door.

Coming back to the yummy strawberry small, it lasts only till shower, once I am out of the  shower I get no small of this on my skin. It comes in the usual sturdy transparent plastic bottle which is travel friendly and leak proof.The body shop strawberry shower gel_3The body shop strawberry shower gel_1The body shop strawberry shower gel_4

Pros of The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel:

  • Smells like real strawberries.
  • No drying effect on skin.
  • Easy to wash, no greasy film left behind.
  • Lathers well. Especially with loofah very small amount of product needed every time.
  • Soap free.
  • Sturdy, Recyclable packaging.
  • Not tested on animals.

Cons of The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel:

  • Smell vanishes as soon as you are out of shower.
  • Not very moisturizing, but then It’s a shower gel and not cream.
  • Bit pricy.

Verdict: B+

Price: 275Rs/- for 60 ml

Recommendation: This product does what it claims. The yummy smell makes shower fun but the smell does not linger on  your skin. Still a must have for strawberry smell lovers, and people loyal to TBS !

I think I have enough shower gels for 2 years but I like that this is moisturizing, might be worth trying out. ;)

The Body Shop showergels are quite famous arent they? I am currently using their cranberry body polish. This one looks good too. True that the frangrance doesn’t last long. I think we could layer it by using the body lotion/butter from the same range. :)

I love the body shop shower gels! my personal favourites are strawberry and the grapefruit one :) i find that if you use the matching body lotion afterwards it layers the scent n it lasts much longer
