The amazingly flavoured shower gels are the reason that pulls me towards the shower or else I am a lazy bum to have a perfect shower routine. I saw these new body washes by Watsons and planned on purchasing them since they looked very budget-friendly and cute. I picked 2 variants; the peach one and the lavender one. So here is the peach one to start with since it is summer time!
Price: $5/Rs 335 for 1000 ml (Retails at Rs 650 in India)
Product Description by Watsons:
Watsons Peach Scented Shower Gel thoroughly cleanses your body and helps your skin retain moisture. Containing Peach Extract to help tone and soften your skin, this shower gel leaves your skin clean with a light and refreshing peach aroma.
Pump directly onto the palm of your hand or a sponge. Work into lather and apply on body, then rinse off.
My Experience with Watsons Peach Scented Shower Gel:
Packaging: The peach shower gel comes in a huge see-through bottle with the orange coloured liquid loaded inside it. The packaging is kept pretty simple and no quirkiness at all added on it. It nicely describes the shower gel and tells us how to use it. The see-through bottle makes it very convenient to spot the amount of shower gel left. It is really big in size since it is 1 litre bottle, so definitely not travel-friendly. The best part about this shower gel is the pump nozzle. It nicely sits on my shower shelf and one pump gives me enough quantity for one time use. So, no flaws in the packaging except for the fact that they don’t have smaller size options.
Fragrance and Consistency: The consistency of the shower gel is like a liquid gel. It isn’t as thick as a gel but I can very well notice the gel consistency. The shower gel is runny and hence I always use it with a loofah because such consistency creates great lather. It foams up really well on my skin and I can use it for a close shave as well. The scent is really fresh and soothing. It smells of fresh and juicy peaches. The scent is very refreshing so great for day-time. It is sweet but mild and hence it does not last after the shower.
Results: The body wash cleanses the skin very well and removes all the dirt and impurities. Also currently my skin gets a lot oily and this removes all the excess oil leaving my skin fresh and clean. It works nothing different than a usual shower gel but getting this much quantity for that price is a great deal. It leaves the skin fresh and bright which is totally needed during the hotter days of the month. Yes it feels soft initially but the soft feel is pretty temporary. It is gentle to the skin like a baby wash. It keeps the skin hydrated and does not itch me in any ways. It nicely does its job in 2 minutes.
Overall a good body wash but nothing that great!
