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
