I am back with another review. This time I will be reviewing a shower gel from my favourite brand ‘The Body Shop’. It is an olive shower gel, after having a good experience with the olive scrub, I thought of buying the shower gel too. Continue reading to know more.
Claims of the Body Scrub:
Packed with skin-softening oleic acid, olive oil has been used for centuries throughout the Mediterranean as a moisturizer. Legend has that athletes in ancient Greece would rub olive oil onto their bodies. So it’s only natural that our Community Trade organic olive oil should come from southern Italy where it’s grown on family farms. We pay the farmers of the Nuevo Cliento co-operative, our Community Trade partner, a fair and guaranteed price that enables them to work their land, build their future, and stay in their communities.
– Community Trade organic olive oil helps to condition skin.
– Glycerin is a water-soluble moisturizer that also enriches foam and lather.
INR 395 for 250 ml
My Take on The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel:
This is my first shower gel from The body shop. I usually find them a bit expensive, but thought of buying this one by looking at the goodness of olives. :D. The shower gel comes in a clear bottle with a flip top cap. I really like the packaging as you can see the amount of product left.
The gel is of olive green color (as expected :P) and has a nice consistency which is not too thick or runny. It spreads easily on the skin and thus only small quantity is required.
The fragrance is not very strong but mild just like olives. It doesn’t smell all that sweet, but is very refreshing. It’s the perfect smell that wakes you up early in the. But I must stay the staying power for the smell is better than others available in the market, and lasts for 1-2 hours after shower.
Now coming to its cleansing properties, it lathers pretty well and gives a nice squeaky feeling without making you feel slippery. It moisturizes the skin really well; I do not feel the need of using a moisturizer in summer after using this shower gel. So it is perfect for dry skin people too.
