“ Brand: Boots Natural Collection / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
This watermelon shower gel is currently available for £1.99 from the natural collection range at Boots. This range is mainly aimed at younger girls but I guess anyone can use it really.
This shower gel comes in a see through plastic bottle and has a white cap with a hook on the top so that you can hang it up in your shower. (I think there's about 300ml in the bottle but not sure about that, it's not a bad amount). The product inside is a red/dark pink colour and of a gel like consistency so not too runny, which is good as it would other wise run off the skin too quickly and not be able to lather up properly and do its job.
The scent of the shower gel is quite artificial but smells fruity and of watermelons. It's quite a sweet smell so I guess girls who like sweet fruity scents would like this one a lot. The soap doesn't lather up that much so doesn't give too many bubbles, which for me isn't that great as I like very bubbly shower gels (that's why foam burst is the main one I stick to).
I also noticed after showering that my skin wasn't feeling very moisturised and I find this even a little drying compared to my other shower gel. I niece likes this one and she is only 9 so I guess it is more suitable for young girls.
So, I'll give this one 3 stars, as it's not awful but not the best I've tried either. I prefer more moisturising products that don't smell too artificial.
Boots Natural Collection - Watermelon Sparkle Shower Gel
**WHAT IT DOES**
It is a refreshing shower gel, which you use in the shower to revitalise your skin. It will get your skin fresh and clean.
It comes in a see through bottle with a screw lid. You can see the pink sparkly shower gel clearly. It is rather eye-catching. The screw lid is also see-through. The bottle is circular and durable. The label is eye-catching with a slice of watermelon and two people sitting on it like it is a see-saw. The Boots logo is on the top. All around the watermelon there is white stars looking like there was an explosion of stars. There is also black writing on the label briefly explaining about the product.
This product is dermatological tested, so you know its safe to use on your skin. It is formulated and produced by Boots skincare specialists.
The shower gel is dark pink with silver glittery specks thorough it and it is bright, making it look more appealing and different. The gel is thick in consistency and takes little of it to lather. It smells like watermelon and is so great and delicious of a smell there is a warning on the bottle that it is not a food. It is a lovely smell and gives a nice aroma when you are in the shower.
Directions: - You massage the gel onto damp skin using a small blob at any one time. Once you have lathered in the gel the pink sparkly colour will disappear and white bubbles will be everywhere meaning you can clean yourself thoroughly. Make sure to rinse the gel off completely or it could irritate your skin. Avoid any contact with your eyes. If contact occurs rinse eyes immediately. If irritation persists contact your doctor. Keep the product out of reach from children, as they may confuse it with a food.
I think this product is great as it smells lovely and lathers easily. It is definitely a nice experience to use this product. My only problem is that if the bottle has been opened and left for a few months the smell of the gel goes off however this is really to be expected. If you spill the gel it can be rather hard to clean it up, as it is thick in consistency. I would recommend this product for anyone even though the fact that the gel is pink it might put boys off from using or buying this shower gel. I feel boys should still give this gel a go as it smells fantastic and makes your skin feel refreshed and soft. I think the target group for this product is young and teenage girls. The glitter would appeal to younger girls and make shower time seem more fun. The bottle looks very appealing in my bathroom.
Overall this product is a great buy and the smell and look is definitely a selling point.
