here again to review a finished product. Today I finished up The Body Shop's Earth Lovers Apricot and Basil shower gel. This product is regularly CDN $10, but I got two for $16. You get 250mL. Here she is:
Basically, I liked this shower gel. It lathered well and was not drying. It also didn't leave a residue on the skin. The scent was delicately fruity, light and pleasant. I like my shower gel with a bit more olfactory punch though, so this product didn't knock it out of the park in that respect. It cleaned adequately. It is free of SLS and parabens.
I guess mainly, through this experiment of trying to be a smart consumer and really examining the products I use everyday, I've realized some stuff about shower gel. I go through it really fast! I like ones that smell strong. I don't like drying or sticky options. Since I go through it quickly I'm still looking for a cheaper option. $8 a month on shower gel isn't a responsible budgetary expenditure for me! And since this one didn't smell FANTASTIC I won't repurchase.
