Hello IMBB Beauties! Today I’m reviewing Palmolive Aroma shower gel ‘Morning Tonic’. We all love tangy citrus and fresh blossom smelling shower gels and body washes during summers. I do not like getting up early in the mornings so I try to motivate myself for an early morning shower by nice a smelling shower gel. When I spotted this bright lime green shower gel by Palmolive, I could not stop myself from buying it.
Price : Rs 105
Quantity : 250 ml
What the packaging says : Shower gel with Tangerine Essential Oil and lemongrass extract. Awake your senses with an energizing Aroma under the shower! With uplifting lemony nots, its formula is infused with Tangerine essential oil and boosting Lemongrass extract which helps to stimulate your mind and spirit in a blissful shower moment.
Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth sulphate, cocamidopropyl betaine, fragrance, sodium chloride, Sodium benzoate, cocamide MEA, sodium salicylate, citric acid, tetrasodium EDTA, polyquaternium-7, Poloxamer 124, Cymbopogon Citratus leaf oil, Citrus tangerine (tangerine) peel oil, CI 47005, ci 42090, CI 14700
Manufactured by : Colgate-Palmolive (Thailand) Ltd.
Imported and Marketed by : Colgate-Palmolive (India) Ltd.
My experience: The shower gel is packaged in a lime green transparent plastic bottle with a darker green flip cap at the top. I find the packaging quite attractive and that was one of the main reasons why I picked up this shower gel. The gel itself is also transparent yellow-green coloured and runny in consistency. The smell is quite refreshing- not one of the regular citrusy or lemony smells. This one has more grassy fragrance which is neither very mild nor very strong. The one I look for in a shower gel/body was is lasting power of the scent. I like the scent to linger on for a while. But sadly this one did not fulfil my expectations.
The gel is neither moisturizing nor drying. I have normal skin and don’t generally require a moisturizer for the body in summers. After a bath, my skin feels comfortable and does not need a moisturizer. Used alone or with a loofah, the gel produces average lather but used with The Body shop exfoliating gloves, the lather reduced considerably. The scent is good for summers but I did not like to enough to feel excited about taking a shower (unlike TBS Strawberry bath range 😛 )
PROs of Palmolive Aroma Shower Gel
1. Sturdy, attractive packaging with flip cap- easy to use and hygienic.
2. Refreshing scent of lemongrass and tangerine to liven up a groggy morning.
3. Produces decent lather used on bare skin or loofah.
4. Don’t require too much product for the body- 250 ml will last a long time.
5. Neither moisturizing nor drying. Normal skinned people wud not need to moisturize in summers.
CONs of Palmolive Aroma Shower Gel
1. Doesn’t lather well when used with bath gloves.
2. Scent does not linger after bath (maybe be a PRO for some people)
3. The gel is quite runny- I end up squeezing out more than required at times.
Overall verdict: It is a decent shower gel good for summers because of its refreshing scent. The scent is not strong or citrusy- its more grassy with a lemony undertone. It lathers up well for a gel except for when used with bath gloves. The scent does not linger after the bath. Is neither drying nor moisturizing. Overall an average product- the only great part is the packaging, I love the packaging!
Rating: 3.5/5 (for reasons listed above)

I am somehow stuck with TBS shower gels and I have sort of forgotten that other companies also make shower gels. 😐 😐 I use dto use palmolive duirng college days and used to looveee. I’ll tryy ankita.. :mirror:
:nonono: give others also a chance! You might need moisturizer though..you have dry skin na..
I like mild fragrances :high5:
Even i bought it cos I was attracted to the color of the bottle…the fragrance is nice 🙂 but doesnt last 🙁
I like the grapefruit and lemongrass bodywash from Dove better than this one tho (the one Jinal mentioned)
Summer time means a variety of 5-6 shower gels in the bathroom 😛
I’ll try the grapefruit and lemongrass one next Shanaiia . Thanks fr the recco :angel: though this one will take a long time to get over!
More grassy than citrusy? I don’t know if I would want to smell grassy after my bath everyday :yuck:
Its not that grassy Swati :nono: Its just not very sweet citrusy!
