“ Brand: Bath & Body Works / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I usually stock up on shower gels and other toiletries when they are on offer and I really like trying new things. This is how the Heathcote & Ivory Bath & Body Vanilla and Brown Sugar Shower Gel ended up on my bathroom shelf.
The shower gel comes in a see-through, plastic tub with a lid at the bottom which I really like (no need to turn it upside down when I start to run out of it). The only thing that annoys me a little is that at the back the ingredients list and some other information are written in orange-yellow colour making it really difficult to read as the shower gel itself has a yellowish colour.
What I was mostly intrigued about if it comes to this shower gel, was its scent. It didn't disappoint. It is very sweet (almost sickening I would say) but not overwhelming and it genuinely smells of vanilla (I am not entirely sure about the brown sugar however I am assuming that it adds to the vanilla this extreme sweetness). Because it is so sweet, I am glad it doesn't stay on my skin for too long and isn't too overwhelming. I also think that this is the perfect scent for winter and pre-Christmas period.
The shower gel lathers up really well and is a very good cleanser - simply, it does its job as a shower gel really well. According to the producer, this shower gel contains moisturising glycerin and it promises to leave your skin soft and smooth. I didn't notice any moisturisation however it definitely didn't leave my skin dry (which is always a good thing). Also, my skin is normally quite soft as I use a body butter/lotion so I cannot really comment on that.
This shower gel has not been tested on animals. It doesn't contain any parabens or sulphates. Overall, it is a very pleasant product and it makes me think of Christmas. Unfortunately, the standard price (£5.50 for 250ml from their website) seems a bit too high for me.
Thank you for reading my review.
