Original Source Pineapple Shower Gel - Shop around as this is often £1 at many supermarkets, and shops
This product is on the Original Source website heralded as the summer scent of 2011. However I know that I have stocked this since Christmas at Morrison's, although last time I was in I accidentally picked up Lemon gel so they may now have run out (sob).
As with all Original Source shower gels the product is made with 100% natural fragrances. The bottle is the standard shape of the Original Source range, and is a rectangle shape that stands in it's flip top lid. The bottle widens towards the bottom to ensure stability. It looks wonderful with the word Summer down the front that is covered in a flower design.
The product itself is a nice smooth consistency, that is not too runny. It lathers well with just a little of the product being used, and as with other products it lathers better if you use a shower pouffe. The product is a bright yellow in colour and the scent of pineapples is there nicely from the outset. As Original Source only ever use natural scents there is nothing fake or synthetic about it.
This shower gel is a real treat to use, as it smells so fresh and fruity, the scent does linger nicely, but it doesn't interfere with any perfumes that you may choose to wear with it.
I would definitely recommend this product to people as it is just such a wonderful quality product for the price paid. It has never made my sensitive skin flare up, and is a real bargain.
I first read about this product on this very website and I was intrigued - I don't think I've ever seen a pineapple-scented beauty product before.
Then by complete coincidence I spotted the product in Boots the next day for the bargaintastic price of £1. So of course, I picked it up, took a look and then put it back down and left the shop empty handed. As if! Of course I bought a bottle - I don't think I've ever left Boots empty handed... And a quid to try out something a bit different was too hard to resist.
I generally love fruit-scented products but I'm not the best fruit eater! But ... I love pineapple and would say it's definitely my favourite fruit. So this shower gel looked set to be a match made in heaven.
The gel comes in a plastic squeezy 250ml bottle that sits on its lid - the best type of packaging for shower gel I think. The tube is see-through and inside you can see the intense golden-yellow shower gel. The packaging also says SUMMER in big letters, and I must mention here that I made this purchase a few months ago and in all honesty I am not sure how easy this would be to buy at the moment. However, you never know ...it may be back in store in a few months!
I had a cheeky little sniff of this in the shop before I paid for it - the scent is overwhelmingly of pineapples (as you may well expect!) and it's very sweet and quite strong. I decided to try it out as soon as possible.
This is quite a thick gel and I personally like to use a shower puff in the shower so I poured a little on to that. Applying this to damp skin, the gel lathered up really quickly and the smell of pineapple was very strong. It was really quite strange to smell this in the shower as it such an unusual fragrance for a shower product - having said that it was still really pleasant and a bit of a treat for a pineapple lover like me! It was nice to use and left my skin feeling soft and clean - although the smell didn't linger at all.
Although I did like this product, I do have my reservations about it. The pineapple fragrance is very nice but it is just a bit odd! I actually thought I would love it but in truth I am a little unsure about it. Maybe I should stick to eating pineapple in future! As a shower gel, it definitely does the job, lathering up nicely and leaving skin feeling squeaky clean. But I am not sure I would buy this again - there are other shower gels out there that I prefer! It's three stars from me.
Last summer I went on my first holiday abroad in 7 years. With 5 of us going, I went slightly overboard in taking toiletries. One product that I didn't regret taking was this special Summer edition of Original Source in the Pineapple variety.
Once again I bought this product in Superdrug. I was attracted to the 99p price tag, and the fact they had it in promotion buckets by the till. When I took this product to the tillpoint the shop assistant commented on how beautiful smelling this showergel was.
I know that Original Souce products can leak a little bit in transit, so I sealed the top with cellotape before packing it into my suitcase.
With a mixture of adults and children of both sexes, it can be hard to judge what toiletries to take on holiday. This however was a great unisex option as it smells so fresh and clean, and it gets you into the holiday spirit.
To use, I put this onto a shower puff or sponge and smooth all over. The product creates lots of lather and the smell fills the bottle - sweet pineapples fill the room! The more you use, the more you enjoy the smell and the longer you want to stay in the shower.
On a slight negative note, I don't think the pineapple smell lingers on the body following the shower, which is unlike some of the other original source products that I have tried in the past.
Everybody in our party enjoyed using this showergel and I can't wait to buy another this summer for my next getaway.
I'm a big fan of the Original Source shower gels so when I saw the pineapple variety on offer for £1 in my local Boots I couldn't resist buying it. I absolutely love it - the fragrance is incredibly fresh, zingy and pineapple-y and really wakes me up in the morning. I also really like its bright yellow colour and just seeing the bottle in the shower in the morning really cheers me up.
I was also surprised to discover that it is incredibly moisturising. I'd usually associate milky coloured, opaque shower gels with moisturising and nourishing my skin, so I was pleasantly shocked when I discovered that it left my skin feeling very soft, even after just one use.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this shower gel. Though I bought it on offer, I'd happily pay full price for it. Unfortunately, the pineapple flavour is a limited edition shower gel; however I've seen it recently in my local Boots so I may have to stock up before it disappears!
I simply love to smell great and so make sure that I have a great number of fragrant products with the likes of anti-perspirants, aftershaves, shower gels and more all being part of my daily grooming regime so when I purchase I like to go with top brands I feel I can trust. Thanks to my excellent experiences over the years with Original Source shower gels I have continued to use them and love to experience the new releases as they come out (thankfully overall I have had good experiences) but with some not quite living up to my hopes did this one manage to impress?
This is a vibrant yellow colour that makes you think of lovely warm summer days so it is the perfect shower gel to start your day and brighten things up straight away.
The amazing smell from this shower gel (golden pineapple) is beautiful and sweet and remains with you for a good hour or two after you have used it. The fragrance excites the senses and really is a great smell to start your day with as it puts you in mind of those lovely hot summer days (perfect for when it is pouring with rain outside as it offers you an escape to a sunnier place for a short space of time).
The gel is of a good consistency and so you only need to use a little amount but it will go a long way.
The bottle is well designed and even though it is simple it enables you to stand it on its lid with no fuss or problems and also to squeeze out and use just the amount you need (so saving you money). The bottle being on the lid means that even as you run low on shower gel you don't need to shake the bottle to get to the remaining product as it is all there at the cap and ready to pour.
Great value for money as you use so little each time that this will last you for a number of washes.
A shower gel that leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh and thanks to the natural ingredients used it makes your skin also feel very loved.
This is a very sweet smelling and brightly coloured shower gel that leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and loved each time you use it. The bottle design being simple yet functional is something that many people take for granted but I personally look for each time I purchase a new shower gel. The natural ingredients mean that you know you are caring for your skin which is the way to make sure your skin remains at its best for longest. A great value product with each bottle lasting for a number of washes so something I highly recommend to all.
I have always been a big fan of the brand "Original source" and am always on the lookout for any new "flavours" from them, so imagine my joy at finding not one but two new one's in the range, with the first one being simple called "summer - pineapple".
As with all the other bottles within the range the company are very aware of their recycling responsibilities, with the entire bottle including the flip lid now being recyclable.
There is all the usual "bumf" to be found on the label, a waxing lyrical paragraph on the "flavour" of the shower gel, the fact that it contains 100% natural fragrances, ingredients list etc.....
The bottle itself holds 250ml of gel, and also stands on it's lid, my favourite design by far as it means there is much more chance of getting every last drop of product out of the bottle!
Through the opaque bottle the gel is a lovely sunshine yellow colour, and with pineapple being one of my favourite scents I was eager to start using it.
To use I squeezed a small amount onto my shower puff and agitated to product loads of fluffy white bubbles (which it did with very little effort, and very little o the product too!).
The smell was simply divine! The pineapple scent was natural enough smelling, but strong enough to make it almost edible, almost like how I would imagine a pineapple Jolly Rancher sweet would smell (and taste....mmmm!).
The scent lasted though out the shower, and lingered on my skin one showered and dried off, making my skin smell really fresh and tropical scented, really lovely in fact!
Though every product I have tried in this range is extremely strong scented, I have yet to suffer with any sort of skin irritation, my skin is naturally sensitive, but has no problem with this range being slathered over it! (Thanks goodness, or else I would just have to buy and sniff the stuff!).
Price wise I have only seen it for sale for £1.00, so I have of course got enough to last through the winter, when I hope there will be another flavour available!
