The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel


For an average family like ours back then when I was growing up, we could only afford commercial soaps. But over the years when reasonably priced shower gels (lovely milk baths) started trending, I happily said no to the strong smelling soaps. Recently, when I popped into the Body Shop outlet (vitamin C reviver duo, brow lash gel, vitamin c face spritz, elderflower eye gel and white shiso cleaning oil), given a 20% discount, I purchased this quite pricey olive shower gel.   

Packaged in a standard transparent bottle of TBS with a screw-able flip cap and with a small opening to dispense the gel,  the chubby-heavy bottle is safe and leak proof. Certainly travel friendly as you can pack it in the luggage but remember, if you are flying, hand carrying is impossible even in the your handbag. Nonetheless, for light travellers, you can repack the gel in a smaller bottle or just be contented with the decent shower gels provided by hotels. Really, if you ask me, I won't bother carrying neither repacking. 
One of the things I love about this slightly tinted transparent gel is its natural and refreshing just like the smell of real olives scent. Lovely! Nice! Invigorating to the senses so much so each time I use, I must scent before pumping twice, lathering it with water and luxuriating my body. Lathering well, the gel does a good job of cleansing without leaving behind a greasy film neither any soapy residue as I shower off. But if you expecting it to lock-in moisture or hydrate, I am afraid you will be disappointed.  


Also, the scent slowly fades off after showering and the gel seem to be finishing off fast within the two months I have been using it twice a day. Considering this product as a luxury expensive gel and with more home made showers gel showing up in the market, I have to say no to repurchasing Body Shop Olive Shower Gel.

  2. I have sniffed this and I know exactly what are you talking about. Some of the TBS shower gels, kinda dries the skin out. With TBS its better to buy multiple products together than buying one by one, we get some sort of discount :) Nice review...
