Hi Everyone :pompom: Seeing Rati rave about L’occitane so much, I also thought of trying some of its products, I got this shower gel as a gift from my fiance’ when I expressed my desire to have a few things from L’occitane, I would be getting a few more things by the end of this month :shying: when he returns from Singapore :yahoo:
Let’s take a detailed review of this shower cum bath gel.
Product Being Reviewed:
L’ occitane En Provence Rose 4 Reines Bath and Shower Gel.
Product Description( from the website):
The essence of rose and rose flower water (obtained by distilling the flowers) are time-honored ingredients, known for their astringent, soothing and refreshing properties. Our shower gel, newly repackaged, gently cleanses the skin, leaving it delicately perfumed. As a foaming bath, it transforms into a rich foam, infused with a fresh and slightly fruity fragrance.
Price/ Packaging/Quantity : The search on internet revealed it is somewhere around 900 INR for 250 ml. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a golden cap which opens as a flip top as well as a screw top. Nothing fancy about the bottle but yes quite simple and easy to use.

My Take on L’occitane Roses 4 Reines Bath and Shower Gel:
In one word, this shower gel is “awesome.” No wonder our makeup queen is so fond of this brand. You actually feel that you are sitting amidst 100 freshly plucked red roses from the garden when you start using this gel. The fragrance scores a perfect 10 (mind you I very rarely give a marking like that :P). It is a transparent gel-like liquid which foams to the most mesmerising fragrance of roses. Like I mentioned above, about the packaging, that the product has two openings and the flip-cap ensures that you do not take the extra quantity which is again a plus point as I would not like to waste such an expensive indulgence.
The consistency is same as that of other shower gels. It doesn’t lather much, but that is not much of a problem because it cleanses well. My skin felt baby soft and so smooth after the shower. I skipped my moisturiser just to test the efficacy, but my skin did feel dry after 20 minutes or so and I had to apply my body butter thereafter. Also, the fragrance did linger for around an hour or so after which it started to fade. All in all, it is a wonderful shower gel which has the most enchanting fragrance of fresh roses.
Pros of L’occitane Roses 4 Reines Bath and Shower Gel:
- The fragrance, the fragrance and the fragrance :love:
- Nice sturdy packaging with two openings.
- Makes the skin smooth and soft.
Cons of L’occitane Roses 4 Reines Bath and Shower Gel:
- Some of you may not like it not lathering much.
- For some, it may be a pricey indulgence. It is not really a con of the product as it is every bit worth the money but for some people money is still a constraint.
4.75 out of 5.
Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase L’occitane Roses 4 Reines Mousse De Roses Bath and Shower Gel:
I surely will repurchase and those who love rose fragrance should get this shower gel without a second thought.
