Another bane of my life apart from finding the perfect moisturizer is finding a good soap or a body wash which does not dry me up. LÓccitane almond shower oil seems to be a perfect choice for such a body wash but it is too pricey to be used daily. I was definitely intrigued by the British Rose range of body shop and wanted to try it for myself. And, then, the prices were reduced or sale was on or some such thing so I got these two body shop shower gels for myself among other things.
Unfortunately, the body shop shower gels smell amazing but do nothing for skin except cleaning it. Leaves skin dry and if you do not moisturize, it gets all white and flaky which is not a pretty sight.
The Body Shop Shower Gels – British Rose and Moringa
Price : Rs 345 for 250ml
I would say expensive but then are we not used to these prices? So, moving on, I would have liked the packaging even more if it had been pump. The bottles are hard enough that you need to squeeze them hard to get the product out. And, a bit more of pressure makes a lot of product squeeze out. So, essentially there is a lot of wastage which the pump bottle would have prevented.
Among the two, I love the British Rose. It smells of rose garden and uplifts your senses. Moringa is nice to smell but not my favorite. The body shop shower gels foam well and a little goes a long way. The gel is runny in texture but not too runny. They leave the skin squeaky clean but they can get pretty drying if you do not moisturize immediately afterwards. You can not skip the moisturizing even once with these shower gels.
Overall, they are not high in my list and I would in fact not purchase any of the other body shop shower gels. What about you? Have you tried the shower gels? Do you have any favorites?
