Today, I will be reviewing a shower gel from Boots. I recently picked up a couple of products from Boots as they were on sale. To know more about this product, keep reading.
£0.75 for 250ml.
Boots Zingy Zesty Lemon Shower Gel 250ml froth up and rub down, for an energised feeling.
How To Use:
Lather onto wet skin. Rinse well after use.
My Experience With Boots Zingy Zesty Lemon Shower Gel:
The packaging is kind of similar to the Original Source packaging. It comes in a sturdy and semi-transparent plastic body. It has an open and close matte black cap. The opening of the mouth is small and hence allows one to control the amount of product to dispense. The black cap seemed sturdy, but cap of one of the shower gels from this range came open and spilled quite a bit of product. Hence, I would not recommend these for traveling.
The semi-transparent bottle allows one to see the amount of product left. What I like is that these bottles are easy to use as they are stored upside down in the shower, and you don’t have to tilt the bottle to bring the product down. Moreover, these don’t start dispensing product as soon as you flip open the cap. It will release product only when you squeeze it gently. The front has basic information, while the back has information related to ingredients, directions for usage etc.
This shower gel has a pretty design of a sliced lemon on the front. The shower gel itself is a pale yellow colour. It has an opaque finish. It has a citrusy smell. It does have a slightly medicinal scent, but it goes away after the shower gel lathers up. It is not a unique scent, but still a scent that I like.
They remind me of the Original Source shower gels, except these are less runny and have a more opaque colour as compared to the OS which is moderately runny and almost transparent shower gels. I wanted to try new shower gels because I get bored of the same scents. This shower gel lathers well and imparts a strong fragrance as you use it. It leaves my bathroom smelling amazing. I like using this shower gel with a loofah or exfoliating gloves. The fragrance lasts for a while, or until I apply my body butter.
My skin feels nice and clean. This does not dry out my skin or cause rough texture like other shower gels. It feels invigorating and cleansing. I do not have particularly dry skin, though I know products containing citrus extracts can be drying. However, this product worked really well for me.
Pros of Boots Zingy Zesty Lemon Shower Gel:
- Basic shower gel; gets the job done.
- Smells good and true to its description.
- Lasts a long time.
- Does not dry out skin after use.
Cons of Boots Zingy Zesty Lemon Shower Gel:
- Packaging is not very travel-friendly.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
