Hope you all are enjoying the weekend. Today, I would like to share my opinion on my recent pick from The Body Shop – its the Honeymania Shower Gel.
This soap-free shower gel contains Community Fair Trade honey made from the nectar of thousands of wildflowers. Lather up to envelop skin in a rich, floral scent. Soap-free. Lather-rich. Rich, floral scent. Our Community Fair Trade honey comes from Ethiopia. We source it from Beza Mar – a collective of beekeepers in the remote Sheka rain forest region. The beekeepers harvest the comb from handcrafted bamboo hives using techniques passed down through generations. Our trade gives them a regular income, as well as helping to preserve the endangered rain forest and its wildlife. To find out more, have a look at our Community Fair Trade section.
$8 for 250 ml, I got mine for $4 on a 50% off sale.

My Take on The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel:
There was a 50% bath and body product sale on The Body Shop USA online and in stores (there is always some kind of sale). I picked a lot of gifts for my friends and relatives and some goodies for me; one among them is the Honeymania Shower Gel. I was eyeing this collection from the time it has been released. Also, I was running out of shower gels and that was the right time to stock up some. When I ordered , I couldn’t imagine how a product would smell like honey as honey doesn’t have any strong scent to it. Another thing that made me buy this product is the soap-free factor.
Once the products arrived, I was curious to know how this would smell. It smelled nothing like honey and more like flowers; more of a sweet floral scent. Then I realized that they have a claim that it has “rich, floral scent,” duh!
The first impression was pretty good and I couldn’t wait to use in it the shower. Like most of Body Shop shower gels, this comes in a mess-free flip open plastic bottle, which makes it easy to get product out from. It looks exactly like honey 🙂
It lathered pretty well and I didn’t have to use a lot of product for that (I have to do this with some of my soap-free shower gels in order to produce decent amount of lather) and it smells so delicious of flowers. I couldn’t point out to one particular kind of flower though.
It washes off very easily without leaving any slippery feeling on the skin. Also, it did not make my skin feel dry (its almost winter here!!). The best thing is, I could smell mild floral scent lingering around me throughout the day, pretty impressed with that!
I am going to buy more products from the same range (body butter, body mist, etc.) so that I can layer it for a more stronger fragrance.
Pros of The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel:
- Nice floral scent.
- Soap free.
- Lathers well.
- Washes off easily.
- Does not make skin dry.
- Fragrance lingers for a long time after shower.
- Good amount of product for the price I paid ($4 for 250 ml).
Cons of The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel:
YES!!! it is a con-free product for me 🙂
Last Word on The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel:
I don’t use the same shower gel every day, I switch according to my mood. If you are like me, who likes a fragrant full shower experience, I would recommend this product to you. I am not sure if it is available in India yet, but do give it a sniff at the shop when it is available.
