Oriflame Bath Foam with Revitalizing Apricot and White Tea
What it claims: Escape into summer with this enlivening bath foam, enhanced with extracts of apricot and white tea. The fruity, fresh fragrance is sure to revive your senses. It revitalizes skin when cleansing.
Price and Quantity: Rs. 349 for 400 ml
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Laureth-3, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Parfum, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Sodium Citrate, Benzophenone-4, Panthenol, Camelia Sinensis Extract, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1, 3 Diol, Prunus Armeniaca Juice, Cl 14700, cl 15985.
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 🙂

Nice review Natasha- you are just like me, what you have said about the fragrance part..i also want my bath pdts to have a long lasting smell..but till now i have not found one…st ives is my fav, but do you have any other recos?
i cannot recall offhand….but yeah the puple palmolive is cheaop and long lasting 🙂
but natasha i think most of the body washes doesn’t leave their essence for a long time O:) O:) and with 400ml, this prize is not a bad deal to go for 😉 😉 😉
many of them do….i remember the palmolive purple body wash…the smell lasts me an entire day! and it is just for 90 rupees! :yahoo:
i remember seeing it long time back- still available?
i havent actually seen it in a while…but its counterpart, the blue palmolive with granules is still available. even the blue one used to be good about 3 years agao but when i purchased the blue one few months back, i found that its quality had deteriorated….i hope thats not the case with the purple one as well if the purple is still around !
am skeptical to try out these body washes like palmolive, lux, fiama etc- since they are msotly soap based, i mean it is like these brands have soaps plus bodywashes, basically with no difference in ingredients.never tried any!
i tihnk olay n biotique make soap free washes….i might review one of them :toothygrin:
i have used olay n quite like it..biotique am not v fond of…
hey hold on, i too have used palmolive body wash, the one which comes in light blue color long back but it’s smell also used to vanish after an hour or two!! :starving:
You are lucky girl….Palmolive loves you :secret2: :secret2: :secret2: :secret2:
hey hold on, i too have used palmolive body wash, the one which comes in light blue color long back but it’s smell also used to vanish after an hour or two!!
You are lucky girl….
Palmolive loves you
nopes not the blue one…thats abd….the purple one is good :))

Great review Natasha 🙂
I am using the purple Palmolive currently, so I am guess it is still available. The one with Ylang-Ylang, Lavender etc, right?
o yea yes…some lavendar or night spa therapy it says…thefragrance clings to ypour clothees in semi wet state na….and its till there when i remove from my clothes…same for u?
ok i was going to get moisturiser today so now i pick this magic purple one too today :plane: :plane: :plane: :plane: :plane:
:toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: i hope it works for u :toothygrin:
hehehe i hope so too… i had used maroon one… its called “sensual” but more than sensual the scent was fruity… although i like fruity smells i dint fancy that one much… and to top it it never staye d..but i dontmind trying the purple one also, these arent too expensive plus i buy from beauty centre so they come at discounted prices 😉 😉 😉 :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
I think all these shower gels dont have long lasting fragrance..But they do definitely make the bathing experience quite pleasurable and exotic!! :toothygrin: ..Nice review Natasha!! :thanks:

Hi Natasha… you admonished us on Sireesha’s post and so I am here…not even using liquid soaps these days..but that “yes maam” complex still works though i been out of school a long long time.. :toothygrin: I am a sucker for perfumes too..and BTW what did you tell this “lipgloss person” the first time round or did you give a demonstration then and there… :tongue: :toothygrin:
yeah maybe u r right. i taught literature at dehi niversity for 3 years so well… :lol2: “yes m;am” :lol2: i think i just showed him the lipgloss and asked him if he wanted to try it to find its taste :toothygrin:
