The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower Shower Gel Review

Hello Ladies!!

I love TBS shower gels. I am an all time fan of their strawberry and olive shower gels. I always have them in my bath along with my Neutrogena Rainforest Shower Gel. So, I bought this along with my body lotion from the same range, which I have already reviewed here.


Product Description:

Oriental scent.  Refreshing and cleansing.  Soap-free.  Layer with other Madagascan Vanilla Flower products to build the fragrance. Under a blazing sun, a vanilla orchid winds around a tree, reaching for the sky. As the pods ripen, a heavenly scent fills the air. The Body Shop captures this unique moment in the warm and sensual fragrance.

Vegetarian. Not Tested on Animals. Contains Community Fair Trade Ingredients. No Phthalates. No Triclosan. No GMO.

Directions To Use:

Lather up in the bath or shower using hands or a bath lily.

595 INR for 250 ml bottle. I got it at 30% off.

My Experience with The Body Shop Madagascan Vanilla Flower Shower Gel:

This is a regular TBS shower gel bottle. Transparent and sturdy bottle with a flip top. Though I wish they could provide a pump dispenser in this one as well.  The consistency is regular, not too thick neither too runny.  I love layering products of same range. This makes the aroma last longer and you get the exact luxurious feel without other scents poking their nose in between. This smells very much like the body lotion, which is musky-vanilla and floral. There is something different yet really catchy about the scent of this variety of products. I say, whenever you are around TBS, you need to go and smell this amazing scent. This shower gel in addition has a clean and fresh feeling to it that I guess is very much apt. I got especially interested in this shower gel because it has no harsh soap and contains honey as an ingredient. Honey has amazing qualities and does wonders for the skin. So, I didn’t have to give it a second thought before buying.

It lathers up well and the foam is really luxurious. The scent in the shower is absolutely mesmerizing. It doesn’t dry out your skin and leaves you with a clean and soft feeling skin. The scent is so soothing, I bet, you are going to spend more time in the shower. This is perfect for evening showers after a long day of work for calming your senses.

One thing I can say for sure is that this is one of those things that I think, I will always repurchase. I really though would want to try out other stuff they have in their “Scents of the World” range.
