So after an overdose of Palmolive Naturals shower milk for almost 6 months, I have switched to Imperial Leather for some time. One of my favourites, it offers several ranges of fragrances to indulge in! Though I have used so many shower gels/body wash from Imperial Leather, this happens to be my first review from the brand. When I went for my regular grocery shopping, I spent most of my time figuring out to finalise my purchase of a body wash. I was quite boggled with so many variations available and finally I picked up the Imperial Leather Refreshing Peppermint and Eucalyptus shower gel. The first and last thing I check while buying body washes are their aromatic smell and fairly, almost all the brands do a similar job, but, what stands out is their fragrance. And, I bought this product simply because of the new and different fragrance. It is soft, cool and refreshing at the same time, one of the classic fragrances available in this range.
Price: £1.00 for 250 ml

My Experience with Imperial Leather Refreshing Peppermint and Eucalyptus Shower Gel:
It is packed in a sleek rectangular plastic bottle with a green flip-flop lid. The packaging is quite basic but, perfectly fine to hold with wet hands. The shower gel is green in colour representing the flavours of the product. It has a light and a little runny consistency; just squeeze a little and then apply to the damp skin. It lathers effectively and really smells nice. You can feel light creamy soft bubbles over the skin; it cleanses the skin, rinses perfectly leaving my skin soft. I have an oily skin so, I am usually not bothered about my skin getting dry after a shower. My skin doesn’t feel dry or greasy so, I am quite happy with the end result. However, a moisturiser is needed after a shower.
And, coming to the fragrance, it is certainly not mild nor strong; perfect to wake up the lazy soul every morning. I found the combination of lively peppermint and eucalyptus quite exciting as it is a perfect rejuvenating blend to make you feel energised and calm at the same time. I suspected that the fragrance would be little strong but as the product claims it is fine to be used and it is good enough to be used by the whole family. The downside is only that the smell doesn’t linger for too long, it lingers onto the skin for an hour or so after the shower but, never feels overwhelming. If you look at it, we usually apply a body lotion or perfume after our bath so, it is fine. The properties of the ingredients help the skin to be well moisturised, supple and uplifting. As it is dermatologically tested, it is suitable for sensitive skin. Overall, a simple yet effective product easily available in the market for just a pound!
