I gave in to the temptation of the Bath & Body Works products; I got myself this shower gel and a body lotion(review coming up) and here is the review of the shower gel in the variant Ocean Melon & Mango. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 995/- for 295ml

My Experience with Bath & Body Works Ocean Melon & Mango Shower Gel:
The packaging of BBW products are wonderful to say the least. Those who are fond of cute packaging can pick them up without thinking twice just by looking at them. This one has the fun nautical stripes in cool mint color with details in pink. The cap is convenient for in-shower usage and dispenses the right amount of product. Though I always prefer a pump bottle but this one can be forgiven owing to the overly cute packaging.

The texture is thick jelly like, unlike most of the shower gels available in the market. You can use a loofah or use it by itself. Initially it might feel a bit thick but once rubbed in, it produces enough lather to give a comfortable shower. There is no slimy feeling after washing off the gel. Instead you are left with super clean hydrated skin. You need to apply lotion but you do not have to rush for it; does not make the skin stretchy.

Now coming to the best part, the fragrance. I have never been a fan of fruity smell but this shower gel changed the way I think about them. A drop on the loofah and there is huge burst of fruity freshness. I could identify the melon and mango fragrance very evidently of all the key notes present. The smell is nothing artificial and you feel refreshed after each wash, thanks to the burst of fragrance. The staying power of the smell is approximately an hour or so. I believe the stay can be improved with lotion/cream and mist from the same range, layering does the job.
