My Experience with Yves Rocher Almond Orange Blossom Duo Shower Gel:
The shower gel comes in a small round plastic container with a flap lid. The packaging is very sturdy. The flap lid sometimes get little difficult to open as its little tight and also gets little tricky to open with wet hands. It can easily damage the nails. So, I make sure not to use the nails to open it. I mostly use my teeth. But, its travel safe since there is no chance that the flap would open up automatically. The bottle is also transparent, making it easy to know the amount of product left during the usage. The packaging is sturdy and looks pretty on the bathroom counter.
The consistency of the product is viscous but not water like but a little thicker. It is slightly green in color but looks almost transparent when swatched. The color is hardly noticeable. I use twice the walnut size for my entire body. The shower gel spreads very easily on the skin and also creates a good amount of lather. The skin feels smooth and clean after the shower. The product does not leave the skin dry. As a matter of fact, my skin feels nourished after using. The product contains almond extract and orange extract and we all know how good almond oil is to the skin and the freshness orange provides. Orange peel is also good for sunburned skin. The product does not dry out the skin. So, I would definitely recommend it to people suffering from dry skin.
The fragrance is not very pleasant at least to me. I was expecting it to be more citrus based notes but I could hardly feel the orange fragrance. I felt the combination of almond and orange fragrance has led to a slightly unpleasant smell. But, still its usable. I may not repurchase due to this reason but will continue till I empty this bottle.
Overall, its nice to the skin and not drying. The skin feels well-nourished after shower but needs moisturizing from body lotion especially during colder months.
