My Experience with The Body Shop White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel:
I keep reading and ignoring the fact that soap is not good for skin. Then, I thought I will give this gel a chance to win me over. It is a clear gel with a hint of lilac color. It is not creamy and flows easily out of the bottle.
As soon as you start rubbing the gel on the loofah, it starts lathering nicely and the bathroom is filled with a strong musk smell. I loved the smell. It is easy to wash off and leaves you with a clean feeling. Skin feels smooth and moisturized. I did not get the stretchy dry skin feeling I usually get after I take bath with a soap. However, you have to apply body lotion afterwards anyway.
The smell lingers on you for one or two hours after which it fades away. If you follow it up with the White Musk body lotion and perfume, the musk scent lingers on you all day. :woot:
Pros of The Body Shop White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel:
- Soap free.
- Strong musk smell, which lingers on you for a few hours.
- Skin did not get dry after bathing and felt smooth.
- Lathers nicely.
- Will last long since only a few drops are enough to give you a good lather.
- Can be used on all skin types.
Cons of The Body Shop White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel:
- Even though it is moisturizing, you have to follow it up with a body lotion.
- It is costlier than other brands where you get much bigger bottle for the same price and quality.
4/5. This is a great shower gel which will not strip your body of its moisture. All musk scent lovers should definitely try this out and since most men like musk smell, the boys in the house too will be happy to use this. 😀
