I have not used many shower gels from TBS, this might be the third or fourth one that I have tried from the brand, that’s kind of strange because TBS is so famous for its bath and body products. The “Amazonian Lily” range is comparatively a new launch from Body Shop. The Amazonian Wild Lily Body Mist has already been reviewed on the blog, and I am reviewing the shower gel today 🙂
Escape to the Amazon with wild lily. A refreshing body wash infused with Amazonian Wild Lily, a crisp, luminous blend of floral and aquatic accords inspired by the rain-kissed cool of the jungle.
Rs. 595 for 250 ml.

My Take on The Body Shop Amazonian Wild Lily Shower Gel:
I love the fragrance of this one, its floral but not sweet, with a tart spicy edge that is so refreshing. The shower gel is a pale green liquid which comes in a 250 ml bottle. I require just a bit on the loofah for one-time use because it lathers so well. The fresh and aquatic fragrance lingers on for quite a while after the shower though doesn’t stay for long; however, it can be layered up with other products from the same range, you would be able to enjoy the fragrance. There’s also a perfume oil, so that’s great. It leaves the skin thoroughly clean without any film or residue on the skin.
This shower gel does not rip the moisture from the skin, though a body lotion is a must in winters. It does not have any parabens in it, but salicylic acid is mentioned as the preservative, so that’s pretty good.
As I mentioned earlier, it lathers pretty well and that might be because of SLS in it, but shower gels without SLS do not work for me at all because water at my place has a high TDS content. It also does not leave the skin sticky and is not difficult to wash off.
This shower gel is not very different from other TBS shower gels, the only difference might be the fragrance. I have taken a liking to the fragrance and wish they come out with a shampoo that has this kind of scent, but not all will like this particular scent, so sniff before buying.
Another USP of this product is that its soap free, hence does not alter the ph balance of the skin and is good for sensitive and dry skin. This shower gel does not make skin soft or smooth, its status quo on that front, it does not make skin drier, that’s it.
This shower gel is good for all year round use, but I think it will be great in summers because of the aquatic fragrance.
