“ Brand: Oriflame / Texture: Cream / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
Mango cosmetics are not my sort of thing but I received Oriflame Shower Gel with Mango & Yoghurt as a present so I decided to give it a go. I was actually pleasantly surprised and I quite liked it.
It comes in a clear plastic bottle with a white screw lid at the top. It has a picture of yoghurt swirl (that looks a bit like cream to me) and mango slices which look quite tempting. The gel itself has orange colour so you can easily see how much is left in the bottle.
When you open it, you can smell a bit artificial (but not too bad), sweet mango scent. It isn't overwhelming and too intense which I quite like. The scent still will fill your shower cubicle but not for long. It also disappears fairly quickly (unless you use a Mango & Yoghurt Body Cream).
I usually use it with a puff or sponge so it lathers up easily and produces quite a lot of foam. Its texture is OK - it isn't runny but it isn't thick either so clumsy people like me must be careful not to use too much of it at once (as you really don't need a lot of it to produce lather).
According to producer, it is suitable for sensitive skin. It doesn't apply to me, as my skin is normal so I can't really say whether it's true. Also, mango is meant to condition and hydrate skin whereas yoghurt is promised to nurture and soothe. I have not noticed any change in condition of my skin so this is a bit of a disappointment but at the same time I think that shower gel should cleanse and if I want my skin to be moisturised, I will get a body cream.
Overall, it is a good, but not amazing shower gel. It comes in two sizes: 200 ml (I used this one and it lasted for almost three weeks) and costs £4.45 and 400 ml which will cost you £6.45. Both versions can be found on offer fairly frequently and can be purchased from Oriflame reps. It is not tested on animals.
