“ Brand: Beautifully Delicious / and Shower Gel / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
After receiving a bagful of goodies from my sisters for my birthday, I was introduced to a couple of new brands not familiar even in name to me, wit this (unfortunately!) being my least favourite of the three products.
The product in question is - "Beautifully delicious - Papaya and mango bath and shower gel".
Of the three "flavours" I received in my gift bag (I also had honey and almond, and strawberry and pomegranate), this one seems to have the weakest aroma, which for me is not a good thing, I love strongly scented products that not only clean and cleanse my skin, but leaves a delicious scent lingering on the skin for a while after.
That packaging (to me anyway!) reminds me of the "original source" products, with the idea being that these are highly scented fruity products, but containing plenty of naturally good ingredients for the skin nourishing purposes and to give your skin the scent of being "good enough to eat".
The bottle is a nice large clear container, with the creamy peach gel being visible within, with an easy to open (even with wet hands!) flip design lid, though due to it's size you do find you cannot upturn the bottle towards the end to remove the dregs.
There is a plethora of information to be found on the bottle's label, this ranging from brand name, through to contents, with this boasting a volume of 500ml (16.9 fl oz) which for the price (around the £1.50 - £2.00 mark) is exceptional value for money.
The idea of this particular gel is that it can be used as either a bath cream or a shower gel product, so for the sake of this review (and of course curiosity too!) I have tried it both ways.
For the shower I found that by squeezing a small amount onto a body puff or polisher the best route of cleaning with it, I have watched my children use this, squeezed straight in a hand, and have discovered that it slides straight off the hand or even (if it gets as far as the skin!) straight from the skin before any real bubbling action has taken place!
If used with a puff I found that the bubbles were plentiful and thick, but unfortunately the scent was not really strong enough, even in this reasonably undiluted form.
The mango and papaya makes for a truly delicious scent, very tropical with a slight "twang" to it, rather than being too sweet scented, this gave me an idea of grapefruits and fresh oranges, that slightly sour edge to it, actually making my mouth water, (repeat after me, this is a cleaning product, please do not drink.......)
For a bath, again very little was needed to create a bath full of voluminous bubbles, creating a good 3" layer on the top of the water, this to me was decadent to bathe in, but for my kids (who usually insist on jumping in the bath, sometimes after me, but usually with me, upon which I am forced out!), downside is that the scent completely disappears, which for my tastes is a no go!
Once out of the bath/shower I find that the scent has not clung in any way to my skin, which of course is disappointing, though my skin does feel nice and clean, and in no way irritated, with my kids skin being the same.
As far as I am aware this is definitely available for purchase in Sainsbury's and is also available via www.amazon.co.uk.
This is a nice enough bath/shower gel that for me loses a couple of stars due to the lack of scent when using the product, though it does smell delicious in the bottle!
