The Body Shop Earth Lovers Pear & Lemongrass Shower Gel
$14.95 (250 ml)
This product is 100% biodegradable, comes in a 100% recycled plastic bottle and contains no sulphates, parabens or colourants. It's also soap-free. Without a doubt, The Body Shop are doing their bit for the environment.
Now let's talk about the product. This is a satisfactory shower gel from The Body Shop, with a lovely, refreshing scent. The pear and lemongrass aroma is not overbearing, yet just enough to put a smile on my face as I use it. The surprising thing, though, is the consistency. I was expecting a gel (given the title of the product), however the formula is very thin, almost the consistency of water. As a result, you have to be very careful not to lose it down the drain after you've dispensed some into your hand. I'm super-speedy now, so I've got my method down pat. Once you apply the shower gel, it rubs into quite a nice frothy lather, which is satisfying, and my skin is left soft and clean. Overall, a nice body product with a refreshing smell, but not ideal if you love thicker gels.
I've noticed that The Body Shop stores in Australia hardly ever have a sale, however I was lucky enough to pick this up as a '2 for the price of 1' deal at a shopping centre while holidaying in Singapore. Go me!!
