I have always wanted to write about this favourite product of mine, but just couldn’t get a chance to do so. Now, that I found the time (with much difficulty), I would like to review this favourite possession of mine – The Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel.
As you can see from the photo, the quantity is pretty less now, but I have been using it for months. (Please forgive the embarrassing conditions of my room, I live in a hostel :D)
I have tried a few shower creams and body wash, but nothing stands in comparison with this.
Moving on to the product, the first thing that I absolutely adore about this is the fragrance. It’s lovely, and gives a lingering smell of passion fruit for some time after I come out of the bath, and it totally has the power to uplift my mood! 🙂
The packaging is like standard Body Shop shower gels, and comes in a 250 ml bottle and says “Juicy soap-free cleansing with moisturising passion fruit seed oil.” Even though it is soap-free, it does lather pretty much. The shower gel itself is a great purple colour in the bottle, which I love, and is another reason for me loving it 😀 but when taken out on the hand, it becomes clear.
The only ingredients mentioned are the passion fruit seed oil on the front, rest I cannot find anything. I don’t know if it was written on the outer packaging, because I got this as a gift along with the Passion fruit Body Butter (hopefully, I will review that too).
Passion fruit seed oil is for moisturizing the skin, so it will be great for those with dry skin. I myself have pretty oily-combination skin, but I find it great too, so I guess others will find it great too.
Pros of The Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel:
- Lovely fragrance, lingers on till some time.
- Skin feels very soft and moisturized after using this. (I personally skip the moisturizer sometimes and still my skin feels hydrated).
- Lathers pretty well.
- Only a little amount is required. This particular one has lasted me for months!
- Love the purple colour!
- Good packaging, travel friendly.
Cons of The Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel:
- Availability. I got it as a gift, brought from UK, so it’s possible that it’s available there, but I did not find it in their store here or online 🙁
- Ingredients list not mentioned, maybe it is there on the outer packaging, or the website.
- Price might be high for some.
Would I Repurchase The Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel?
Yes, I definitely wanted to, but can’t. I am looking to buy their Tea Tree shower gel next.
