The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel Review

Hola IMBBians!!! *shy*

I know, I know! I have been away for long! *scared* I haven’t written because of some major whirlwind going on in my life *shy* But I always read through all the posts and comments.  I can see a lot of newbies on IMBB these days with some amazing talent! *clap* Welcome aboard 😀 Well, let me tell you what this MAJOR whirlwind was about first! Remember, last month I shared news of me getting placed through campus placements? Well, I started working there from July 21st. After almost 12 days of work, we get a circular telling the software division (which I was into) is PERMANENTLY shifted to Mumbai! *scared* The sad part being they recruited us for the Bangalore division *spank* It was totally unethical! *hunterwali* But I still thought that I should stick to the job. When dad got to know, he clearly told me that I should quit. *cry* Yes, I’m a daddy’s girl and I definitely did not want to hurt them and do something without their blessings.  So, I just opted out of the job this month. 😛 Now, I’m at home trying to sort things out/ You know, I always believe that “everything happens for a reason” and I am sure Jesus has something better planned for me! I have a few things on my mind right now and I’ll let you all know when it takes shape.

Phew! Too much drama, eh? *hihi* Well, let me at last talk about the product I am reviewing today – The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel.  I went shopping for some gifts for my friend’s birthday and ended up gifting myself this one 😛 I am sure everyone is well aware about The Body Shop! So without wasting much time, let’s see how this one fared for me:


Rs. 425 for 250 ml.

My Take on The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel:

Okay, bitter truth! I cannot resist purchasing from the The Body Shop every time I enter that place ( can you?) *scared* And this caught my eye! Raspberry range was recently launched in India! The word “raspberries” was enough for me to pick it up 😛

Packaging:  Like all shower gels, this comes in a transparent bottle with flip-top lid. I personally like using flip cap packaging. It is very hygienic and at the same time, convenient! I wouldn’t say it is travel friendly since the bottle is quite huge, but if you have travel-sized bottles, you can fill these up in them and you are good to go!

Texture and Fragrance: The shower gel is a reddish liquid which is neither runny nor too thick, just the right consistency like all Body Shop shower gels! The fragrance now!! I really don’t know what to say!!! *woot* It’s smells uhhhmaaaazzzing!! Really! My favourite range from Body Shop before was the Strawberry range! But now I loooove this mooooore!! If strawberry was heaven, this is heaven (to the power of 10 times) for me 😛 It smells heavily of raspberries and I have fallen head over heels in love with it! *drool* It lathers quite well and the fragrance makes my bathroom smell like a raspberry field for the next 6 hours after shower 😛

The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel

Staying Power:  The fragrance stays for almost 3 to 4 hours after shower but for a lasting effect, following up with the Body Shop Raspberry Body Lotion would be perfect! I have been using this for almost 3 weeks now and it hasn’t made my skin dry or flaky. It has in fact made my skin texture softer and smooth. The fragrance makes the whole experience, all the more refreshing! It works like magic and this is THE best shower gel by The Body Shop I have used till date.
