Original Source Shower Gel
Advantages: Natural ingredients and lovely fragrances
I like to constantly change my shower gel as soon as my current bottle runs out so I am always experimenting with different makes and fragrances, but the one brand of shower gel I always return to is Original Source and every time I use it I wonder why I have ever strayed away.
Original Source has been around for a number of years and also produces a whole range of other cosmetics including shampoo and conditioner, hand wash and even versions specifically for men.
I remember when their first shampoo came out and it was in their original scent of tea tree and mint. The sensation it produced was certainly worth experiencing. It made your whole scalp tingle but I could never quite get over the strong minty fragrance, which was a bit too close to toothpaste for my liking.
Therefore I was in no rush to go out and purchase their first shower gel which also came in this minty fragrance.
It was when they started to bring out other fragrances that they won me over. Original Source shower gels stand out from their competitors. Visually they are striking. They come in angular bottles emblazoned with bold writing. They do not rely on images to portray the contents of the bottle. They let the contents of the bottle speak for themselves.
The bottles are clear to allow you to see the contents inside, which invariably come in bold, striking colours. The lemon version for example is bright yellow, while the lime is bright green. At first it is easy to mistake these bold colours as simply being the colour of the packaging and not the colour of the shower gel, so bold and sumptuous looking are they.
Original Source prides itself on using the purest ingredients. Their advertising and even the lettering on the bottle, spell out how much of the shower gel is made up of the scent it professes to be with very little additives. This, combines with the bright colours - which you learn are a result of using the purest ingredients - immediately make you want to dive into the shower with the bottle.
On a practical level, the bottle has a black cap on the base which avoids those tricky moments towards the end of a bottle when you are unable to get out the last dregs. The bottle is water tight, as I have found with some shower gels if you keep them in the shower they start to fill up with water.
The scents are true to what they should be and are much stronger and natural smelling than rivals on the market. The gel lathers moderately and smooths over the skin with ease. It does not dry out the skin or leave it oily and rashy. And it leaves a lovely fragrance behind which lasts throughout the day.
Some scents leave you feeling relaxed and pampered while others leave you awake and refreshed so it is worth experimenting for your desired result.
For even more choice, Original Source is always bringing out special edition versions, particularly for different seasons of the year so there is always something new to try and you get the sense you are using something a little bit special on these occasions.
My all time favourite is the White Pear and at £1.99 a bottle for any of the Original Source shower gels they are value for money. If you are lucky, some supermarkets have them on offer for £1 from time to time.
Summary: A wonderful shower gel which you can change with your mood
