What I like about the Apricot Shower Gel:
●The packaging: It comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a flip cap. I am glad that the bottle is completely a colourless see-through plastic so that I can always check the amount of body wash left before I run out of it while still in the shower! (Yes, that has happened to me several times with coloured plastic bottles from Lush and Biotique)
● The fragrance: This gel came into my washroom at a time when I had got pretty much tired of exotic Indian smells like sandalwood, fuller’s earth, jasmine etc. I am not sure if it really smells of Apricots (since I anyway hate fruity smells) but this is a distinctly English smell which I adore. It is neither too strong nor too mild but exactly the intensity I would want it to be 🙂
● I am currently onto my third bottle of this gel as I had purchased three of these on a discount. As a result, I have ended up using it in summer as well as winter and both with and without a body lotion/body butter/oil. It has never dried me out or made my skin feel scratchy. But then again, I do not suffer from dry skin.
● It leaves me feeling squeaky clean.
● Rinses out easily without much ado.
What I don’t like much about the Apricot Shower Gel:
● The fragrance does not last at all. Besides I do like the fragrance of my shower gels to cling on a bit to my clothes while I am still in that semi-wet state after pulling my clothes on. That just does not happen with this shower gel
● The price: I don’t see myself paying 349 rupees on a body wash whose fragrance vanishes from my body even while I am still bathing.
● A dime size quantity on your palm does not lather well. This is not a con for me as I don’t like too much lather anyway but to those for whom the lather produced is a measure of cleanliness achieved, it might be a drawback.
Verdict: Definitely not a must-have but a welcome change from the “regular” body washes.
Would you purchase again? Yes but only when Oriflame is offering it on a discount 🙂
