The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel – review

As soon as I saw the TBS sale update , I felt I should not postpone reviewing the PINK GRAPEFRUIT BATH AND SHOWER GEL, as it is one of the items in the new list of discounted items. The shower gel has 20 % discount on its price for the sale. And this will provide me the perfect opportunity to post a final set of pictures with the crazy smiley wrapping paper background of the VOV Candy Water Shine Lip Gloss review
So here goes the review for the Pink Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel from the Body Shop –

The product claims – “A soap-free cleansing gel that lathers to leave your skin feeling clean, refreshed and subtly scented with the zesty pink grapefruit fragrance.” The bath and shower gel lathers good and cleans the skin very well, leaving behind a fresh feeling, though I am not satisfied with the ‘pink grapefruit’ smell. It is not horrible, and we do not need to catch a cold and block our nose before using it, but it is no Japanese Cherry Blossom product either, when it comes to fragrance.

The product profile of the Pink Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel from the Body Shop goes like this –

The Body Shop proudly declares – “The Body Shop difference: We have been buying organic honey from our Community Trade partner, North Western Bee Products, in Zambia since 1991. It’s one of the few honeys sold on the world market that is harvested from wild bees. The beekeepers provide living spaces for the wild bees by building cylindrical hives from tree bark, which are hung high in the trees. This traditional method allows the 6,000 beekeepers to grow their trade using natural materials that are freely available in their local environment. And don’t worry about the bees; a strong colony produces two or three times more honey than it needs.”

The pro-s of the Pink Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel from the Body Shop are –

  • There is a sale going on – 20 % is a good discount amount
  • It lathers up fine
  • Makes the skin soft and supple to touch
  • The skin is cleansed and refreshed

The Pink Grapefruit Bath and Shower Gel from the Body Shop is a refreshing, high-lather shower gel that cleanses the skin, making it soft, yet has a mundane fruity smell.

My rating – 3.5/5 as just a shower gel and 3/5 as a shower gel from TBS.
