The Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel is available for GBP 2.30.
The shower gel is described as follows. "It's naturally intense! Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel is packed with natural stuff, using only 100% pure and natural essential oils to make sure you have a shower like you've never had before. It takes 10 real lemons to help make this zesty bottle of shower gel. Experience rapid refreshment with lemon and tea tree essential oils, taken straight from their natural source. Perfect to blast away the cobwebs."
The lemon-yellow shower gel is a colorless tube with black lid, standing on his head. It can be metered easily. The consistency is not different from other great shower gels. It is not too liquid, so that does not run out of hand. When lathering shower gel average foams up strongly, thus the yield is average. The smell I think succeeded, although citrus scents not meet my personal taste. The shower gel has a very authentic smell, it smells like a freshly cut lemon. Therefore, it is not sweet, but rather herb.Einen gripe I have but still: Despite the high intensity of the fragrance scent of shower gels is unfortunately almost not accepted by my skin like. The cleaning effect convinced. The conditioning effect I find okay, because I did not feel that this body wash my skin great cares, but it does not dry out well. I have tolerated this shower gel well. With the Original Source Lemon And Tea Trea Shower Gel I'm satisfied. Persuasion can consistency, fragrance, cleaning effect and tolerability. The fragrance durability can convince me less and the care effect was only okay.
Original source tea tree and lemon shower gel is great. It smells absolutely delicious, it's so fresh and citrusy that it makes me think I'm somewhere lovely on holiday even though I'm in my shower in suburbia! The smell makes it seem almost good enough to eat (don't- it doesn't taste good!).
It is one of the more expensive shower gel brands when full price (compared to own label), but it is very often on offer in the High Street chemists such as Superdrug and beats. I have recently picked up a few of these for a pound each, it is always worth stocking up when you can get a bargain!
The scent of these shower gel is definitely neither feminine no masculine, which saves arguments as we can all use the same shower gel.
The shower gel lathers really well and you don't need to use a lot to get a really good foam. This means that it tends to last for quite a long time, especially if you use a bath Lily.
It always leaves you feeling really clean and fresh. One small word of warning, this is definitely not suitable for your face even though it is a tea tree based product. I have made that mistake, and found it left my face feeling rather dry. It also hurts like hell if you get it in your eyes (there is no surprise there!).
I would highly recommend this particular original source shower gel for anyone. I also think it makes a nice stocking filler or secret Santa gifts. They sometimes make nice little gift boxes too, so look out for those.
I bought this Original Tea Tree and Lemon shower gel from my local poundstore which is a good price as this is half price. I find that I only need to squeeze about a ten pence piece size out onto my sponge and this is enough for my whole body. I will rub it into the sponge for a few seconds and it does lather up very quickly and produces a lot of bubbly lather. Unlike some other shower gels the bubbles seem to increase as I am washing rather than disappearing.
The smell of this shower gel is delicious. The smell of zesty lemon is really apparent and I find that I can smell it on my skin for hours after using it and my skin does feel soft and hydrated. They also do shower gels in other fragrances including orange and lemon and they are all suitable for men and women.
I do suffer from dry skin on my legs and often find myself scratching when I am sitting watching television, but I don't do this if I have had a shower when I get home from work and use this shower gel as it does leave my skin feeling very moisturised and hydrated. I do feel that I am looking after my skin by using this product as I am not using any chemicals or unnatural ingredients.
I recommend this shower gel as it is rich and creamy and leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling lovely for a long time after using it, but it is a natural smell rather than a perfume smell which I love. It is ideal to use every day as it is kind to your skin and I am happy to recommend it and to continue to use it.
I wanted some travel size products to take with me on business trips and picked up the original source lemon and tea tree shower gel as it was part of a three for £3 offer Asda were running.
The travel size bottle is 50ml and the full size bottles are 250ml, the 250ml bottle are about £1 in Asda.
The shower gel is in a clear plastic bottle, which can be recycled after use. The lid is a black plastic twist and pull style. I don’t particularly like this, as it’s a little awkward to put it back on the bottle when you have poured shower gel into one hand. If you don’t put the lid back on straight away the shower gel just runs out of the bottle, resulting in quite a bit of wastage. The label on the front of the bottle is very bold but simple. It contains all of the information you need to know.
The shower gel itself is bright yellow in colour and the see through bottle allows you to see how much you have left. It’s quite a thick consistency and lathers up well, a small amount of the gel is adequate to clean my whole body. It has a very refreshing smell, strong lemons with only a slight hint of tea tree. I like to use products that contain tea tree as I find it’s good at keeping my skin clear. Tea tree doesn’t have the nicest smell in the world so it is good that it’s totally overpowered by the lemon.
My skin feels clean and refreshed after use, the fragrance from the shower gel doesn’t linger on my skin once I am out of the shower, which I quite like.
Overall this is a good shower gel and I think I will give some of the other scents a try.
I am a big fan of the Original Source range of toiletries especially the shower gels with the lemon and tea tree fragrance being a repeat purchase for me.
The shower gel comes in a 250ml bottle and was on a half price special offer at just £1.00 in Boots recently.
The bottle is made of a clear plastic allowing you to be able to see how much of the bright yellow coloured shower gel is left inside. I do like the way the bottle stands on the flip top cap as it allows the shower gel to be ready to squeeze out straight away rather than having to wait for it to reach the top and shaking the bottle when it is running out. The bottle is also made out of recycled plastic and also able to be recycled after you have finished with it.
The shower gel is easy to dispense from the bottle by flipping the cap open and squeezing the bottle. The bright yellow shower gel has a rather thick somewhat jellified texture. You can smell the shower gel as soon as you squeeze it out of the bottle, it has a gorgeous strong zesty lemon fragrance with a slight hint of the tea tree which smells fantastic!
I always use my shower gel on a shower puff as this ensures that I get a nice lather. My skin feels really cleansed and fresh after using this shower gel, it doesn’t really moisturise but it is not left feeling in any way dry and I always follow my shower with a body moisturiser anyway. Plus I do like shower gels which contain tea tree as it tends to keep the occasional spot away from my back which is always a good thing.
Overall this shower gel is another great product from Original Source. It works perfectly and smells fantastic.
My husband always buys the original source shower gels and has tried a number of the fragrances over the years. On balance I would say that this is the one he ends up buying the most often and I can understand why.
The shower gel comes in a tapered plastic angular bottle which is transparent. It lets you see the amazing yellow colour of the shower gel within. The bottle holds 250 ml of gel which is dispensed through a black flip top lid on which the bottle stands. I prefer a shower gel to stand on its lid like this as it allows you to access the last of the gel without having to wait as long.
In large white letters on the front of the bottle it states that 10 real zesty lemons are packed into original source lemon and tea tree shower gel
If, like me, you like citrus fragrances (the zingier the better as far as I'm concerned) then you too will like the sounds of this description. Luckily the fragrance lives up to the expectations. As soon as you begin to use the product your senses are hit by a burst of invigorating lemon aromas. I,m not a big fan of the smell of tea tree so was pleased to find that it is totally overpowered by the lemon fragrance. The whole bathroom is filled with the smell which I love! One of the added advantages with this particular fragrance and packaging is that is is very gender neutral. Both my husband and I like it.
In use the gel lathers well. The consistency is a little too gloopy for my liking but this is a very minor complaint. It leaves skin feeling very clean and refreshed - this is where the tea tree ingredient comes in. It doesn't seem to dry my skin out but also isn't a moisturising body wash so I do tend to find i need to use a body cream after a shower with this gel.
Like all of the original source shower gels, I would really recommend this one. I would prefer it to be a little more moisturising but with a frangrance like this, I am happy to overlook this aspect and will no doubt be restocking in the near future once again. Highly recommended.
Original source shower gels can be purchased from Boots for 2.30.
I was just writing my shopping list when my husband informs me that he has run out of shower gel and can I get him some? He requests some kind of Original Source.... hmmm, I'll get whatever is on offer I thought!
When I got into Tesco I found that it actually was on offer! It was only £1 for a bottle of Original Source, but which one to get?! There are lots of different varieties!
He normally gets the tea tree one but I decided to mix it up a bit and go for something a little different, I decided on Tea tree and lemon instead!
I like the bottle, it has bold packaging and labelling but what I really like it how the cap it at the bottom and is also the stand. It means that when you are getting to the end of the product it is still fairly easy to squeeze it out!
Now the shower gel is actually quite thick, giving it a bit of a squeeze you get a little glug of it and it seems to lather up really well. You get quite a thick, foamy lather from it which I like, it feels like good quality. Also a little bit goes quite a long way and you can cover most of your body in just a little amount so it really does seem to be good value.
The smell is what I really have issues with. The lemon scent is quite over powering and doesn't seem to be a nice lemon smell. I'm not sure what but there's something not quite right about the lemon scent, it's very artificial smelling.
The tea tree part, well... what tea tree?! I can't really smell any tea tree in it, it should really just be called lemon!
You do feel really refreshed and clean afterwards so I would definitely try other Original Source shower gels but would give this one a miss!
Thank you for reading

I love the mint and tea tree Original Source shower gel as it is one of the best cheap shower gels that money can buy.
The lemon and tea tree one shares a lot of the same things that make the mint one so great but it doesn’t quite reach the same heights as that one.
It is a fairly decent shower gel especially when you consider that you can pick it up for only £1 when you hunt about for it.
It contains real lemon oil as well as tea tree oil. The smell of this is good but considering that it contains real lemon it does have a slight synthetic smell to it. It’s nice enough but it could have smelt even better.
It has a thick consistency which lathers well and you don’t need to squeeze out loads of it to get a good lather.
I like the way this makes my skin feel as it leaves it feeling really clean. Tea tree is always something that I like to use as it cleans deep down and naturally leaves my skin looking clearer and this shower gel does a good job of cleaning without being harsh and irritating on my skin.
It is a very refreshing shower gel to use and the fragrance is good for using in the mornings to help wake you up and make you feel fresh and clean.
Overall this is a really nice shower gel and well worth the money but it is just a shame that the smell isn’t quite as good as it could have been.
After much perusal over the shelves of Tesco's bath and beauty department a year ago when me and my boyfriend moved in together we started purchasing Source shower gels and have been doing so ever since. More of his preference over mine as I have to vary my usage of different types of shower get due to having very dry skin ever so often.
Unfortunately I cannot smell any tea tree at all from this product during usage which is maybe a good thing for me anyway as I do not particularly like that scent anyway. Though instead it smells like zesty lemon meringue pie or perhaps a sharp lemon tart. The smell is really quite fresh and invigorating and is a really nice refreshing scent for getting your day started as it does wake you up I have found.
A gooey yellow with some transparent liquid a little like lemon curd, it comes out in a squirmy sort of line which comes out quite evenly due to the small hole in the dispersal lid it seems to be about the right size so as to reduce wastage or excess amounts flying out while in the shower. The casing is also a slightly harder plastic instead of a tube so if you accidentally squeeze it the contents won't squirt everywhere.
It maybe doesn't foam up as much as I would like it to unless you use a good sponge or squdgie scrunchie and it does have a slightly negative effect on my dry skin if I try to use it more often than every other day or every three days so its not great for people who also suffer from my condition. Though my boyfriend seems to like it since his skin is more normal type in comparison so I can see why he likes it but its maybe not always for me.
Typically from Tesco you can get these bottles in a whole range of smells for buy one get one free or half price which usually ends up around £1.10 per bottle which lasts around 10 days to 2 weeks in our house.
Other scents include
Mint, Lime, Vanilla Raspberry, coconut, lemon and lime, black pepper and chilli, eucalyptus and mint and tea tree.
Original Source are a UK brand which specialise in products such as shower gels, scrubs, hand wash, hair shampoo, hair conditioners and bath products. They are a creative brand and often come up with unique scented products which contain unusual ingredients such as chocolate, honey, walnut, pineapple, white clay, lime, chilli, almond and ginger.
Whilst recently shopping I picked up a bottle of Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel. I have previously tried Lime and Orange/Cinnamon, but not Lemon/Tea Tree. Original Source is sold in most of the main supermarkets and I've noticed that their shower gels are often on offer (usually for £1.00, instead of the usual price of around £1.80). They're sold in most budget shops too, like Poundland - bargain!
Original Source do 'Seasonal Editions' shower gels, which means certain shower gels are only available at certain times of the year and the scents generally reflect the different seasons. The Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel is available all year round and it's one I'd be happy to use during any time of the year.
The shower gel comes in a transparent plastic (recyclable) bottle, just the right size for me to fit my hand around and is fine for use in the shower. The lid is at the bottom which is handy as it means you don't have to mess around shaking the bottle to try and get the gel out (especially as you get towards the end). The gel itself is a bright yellow colour and has quite a thick gloopy consistency.
The smell of the shower gel is apparent as soon as you squirt some out. It's very strong smelling and exactly what I was hoping for! It's very zingy, zesty and refreshing. It smells like just real lemons - almost like showering in lemon juice! It also reminds me of delicious Lemon Bonbons! There is no hint of the tea tree at all, I don't see this as a downside as I much prefer lemons over tea tree, but if you like the scent of tea tree then you may be in for a disappointment.
I use a shower puff whilst in the shower and find that just a small squirt of shower gel is generally enough to get the job done (a little goes a long way). The scent is very strong whilst in the shower and I find that it stays on my skin for up to a few hours after I've showered. The shower gel lathers up very well and combined with the strong smell I find that it makes me feel very clean, refreshed and invigorated during/after my shower. For this reason I think it the shower gel is most suitable for a 'wake me up' morning shower, rather than a 'winding down' night time shower. My skin always feels soft and smooth after showering (it's 'packed with essential oils' and tea tree is great for the skin) and I've never suffered any bad effects from using Original Source Shower Gels.
Something which I really like about Original Source is they have good ethics. None of their products are tested on animals and all of their products are suitable for vegans. They also use natural ingredients to create their fragrances. The Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel contains real lemons (10 in each bottle!) and tea tree extracts. However this isn't to say that the rest of the ingredients are as natural - there is a lengthy list of ingredients which I can barely pronounce, never mind know what they are! So 'packed with natural stuff' (as quoted on the bottle) isn't ENTIRELY true...
Overall the Original Source Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel is cleansing, refreshing, smells GREAT, lathers well, contains natural ingredients and isn't tested on animals. It's one I will buy again and again.
I not one to buy flowery smelling shower gels, and as I've tried other Original Source shower gels I thought I'd give this one a try.
Original Source Lemon and Tea Tree Shower Gel is like covering your body in rich lemon curd, it really wakes you up first thing in the morning. When you open the cap you're hit with an intense lemon smell, you can't really smell the tea tree, which for me is a bonus as I'm not particularly fond of it, which hangs around the bathroom for a good few hours once you're out of the shower. The gel is thick and rich and so a little goes a long way, it lathers up really well, especially if you use a scrunchie, and produces loads of bubbles. It leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed and smelling of lemons.
The bottle is see through so you can see the bright yellow gel inside, it reminds me of lemon curd, although you can't spread this on your toast. This makes it easy to see when you're nearing the end of the bottle and as you stand it on the cap, all the gel flows to the opening it makes it easy to use every last drop cutting down on wastage. The bottle contains 250ml and is quite an easy one to hold as it tapers and has a slightly rough feel so that it's easier to grip with wet hands which is very handy as there's nothing worse than dropping the bottle in the shower.
The bottle says that there are 10 real zesty lemons squeezed into every bottle and believe me, you can definitely smell everyone. It also has all the usual information on the back about the ingredients etc, plus it would appear that it is suitable for vegans.
I tend to buy it when it's on offer at £1, I got my latest bottle from my local CO-OP chemist, but normally you can buy it almost anywhere for between £1.00 and £2.50.
I'll definitely be buying this again, I'll add it to my Original Source Lime shower gel and make myself a cocktail.
I hadn't actually tried to Original Source range of products before. I tend to bath a lot more than I shower and I usually opt for a pink shower gel such as the Radox one! However, when shopping in Superdrug last week my eye fell on the Original Source range where a lot of the bottles were discounted to £1. I thought now would be the perfect time to try it so I started to decide which bottle I would like to try. Usually I opt for a floral or berry fragrance so I was disappointed when there was none of these available. However my eyes fell on the Lemon and Tea Tree scent so I decided to give this one a go instead.
The bottle design is exactly the same as is shown above. I like the design I think it looks fresh and modern and I like the shape of the bottle. To open the bottle you simply click the flip top open and then gently squeeze the bottle to dispense the product.
The shower gel is a good consistency and it is not too thick. However, its not so runny you end up dropping it all over the shower either. I use about 4 50p piece size blobs of this to wash my entire body so a little does go a long way. As soon as you get the product out of the bottle you are hit with a zingy lemon scent and I really liked this smell. It really wakes me up and it is very refreshing. The gel lathers up easily and it is easy to clean my skin with this.
The gel rinses off easily and I am left with a lemony scent over my body for a couple of hours but this is dulled down and is sort of a creamy lemon scent rather than the strong zingy scent. People have commented I smell nice after using this so that cant be bad!
The product is kind to my skin. I do suffer with sensitive skin but I have had no problems with this. Instead my skin feels soft and supple and I am really pleased with how my skin feels at the moment.
I like this shower gel and will definitely buy it again. It is reasonably priced for a branded product and I love the way it cares for my skin and provides me with a strong zingy scent.
Sadly, I've started to run out of the lovely 'smellies' that I received at Christmas (everybody say ahhhh) but there's good news, it's my birthday next month and hopefully I'll receive more (hurray!) but in the meantime I can't go without a shower for the next 6 weeks, so I had to purchase something to bridge the gap. After reading some excellent reviews about Original Source products on here lately, and with them being on promotion in Asda for only £1, I thought I'd get some to try. My experience with Orange and Ginger shower gel had been positive, so I had high hopes for this too. My review discusses the Lemon and Tea Tree variety.
The 'bottle' is the familiar shape that instantly lets you know that this is from the brand Original Source. It has a flat 'face' and a curved back. The transparent plastic outer is slightly textured so it's easy to grip even when you have wet hands. The bright yellow contents, reminiscent of lemon curd, immediately drew me in as I love anything fruity. With the proclamation on the front that '10 real zesty lemons' are packed into the gel, I was really looking forward to using this. In fact, I had to take a crafty sniff right there and then in the shop, needless to say I wasn't disappointed and into my basket it went.
Opening the black plastic flip top lid, which is conveniently positioned at the bottom so you can get the contents out more easily, you are greeted with the most delicious fragrance. It's a subtle lemon, and considering there is supposed to be the juice of 10 lemons in there, it isn't as zingy and sour as I was expecting. It's sweet, a bit like a sherbet fountain or a dib-dab confection, but with a touch of herbal quality about it; I expect that's the tee tree inclusion. To my mind, it doesn't remind me of sour lemons and the antiseptic scent of tea tree, it reminds me more of the herb lemon balm. I have lots growing in my garden (it gets to be a bit of a weed, if you don't control it), but that is the perfect description in my opinion.
Applying this directly to my skin, it doesn't give the luxurious foam that I like, but for the price, I didn't expect it to. It does produce a better lather than I was expecting it to though, especially when I started to use my shower puff. Once applied to my wet skin the scent did weaken a little but due to the puff, I didn't need to use as much gel. Being a fragrance I really enjoy using, it didn't matter in the slightest but a more intense fragrance to start with would have been better. This isn't a very thick gel, and it reminds me more of a lesser quality shampoo than a shower gel for some reason, but it's thick enough that it doesn't escape from your hand or shower puff, so that's good enough for me.
I do suffer from some dryness on my shins on occasion, and thankfully its fine at the moment. This product hasn't aggravated my skin or caused any irritation or redness, but it does feel slightly tight. My skin isn't screaming out for moisture, and I could probably get away without applying a body lotion afterwards, but I have done so after every use simply because I like to layer my fragrances, to make the most of the scent. I use a Lemon scented body lotion from Body shop which I feel compliments this product well, as they have the same lemon sherbet/verbena fragrance.
I just need to point out that while Original Source products look 'natural' on the surface, with its vegan friendly claims, 100% natural oil inclusions, aromatherapy trade council certification, and tested on people not animals, all claims made in a tiny section on the back label, it's not as good as it makes out. It sits at the midway point in testing on how ethical products are (information can be found at www.ethical consumer.org) and Original Source come under the Cussons umbrella that do sadly, test on animals.
Would I use this product again? Yes I would, but I while I like the refreshing fragrance, but it's not as zingy and enlivening as I was hoping for. It's a more sophisticated scent than full on lemons, and it's more suitable for showering at any time of the day, rather than being a morning only scent. It's a basic shower gel at the end of the day, and it serves its purpose well, and even at full recommended price, I feel that I'd have got my monies worth, so I'll definitely buy this again; in fact, it's already on my shopping list, so I can stock up while it's still on offer. I can recommend this product and but it gets four of out five from me, losing one star for lack of intensity of fragrance.
This is an "Original Source" shower gel. The brand tries very hard to appeal to people who enjoy all things natural and ethical. This Lemon and Tea Tree shower gel is suitable for vegans and includes essential oils to nourish the body. I'd seen this brand advertised on the television and I like product with tea tree in so decided to give it a try.
I quite like the packaging of original source products despite it being rather basic. The cap of the shower gel is plain black with a flip lid to open but what I really like is that the cap is at the bottom of the bottle meaning that it stands up on it's cap. This is a simple idea but I really like it because it means you don't have to wait for the shower gel to run down to the lid when you're running out as you do with some gels. With this one the product is always ready to be squeezed out of the bottle. The main bottle is see through plastic and it says on the back that the packaging is recyclable which I also like!
On the front of the bottle it says that 10 real zesty lemons are packed into the product on the back it gives safety and all the regular information and also states that the bottle includes 250ml.
I paid £1 for mine on offer in ASDA but you can purchase the product from most chemists and supermarkets.
I really like this shower gel, as somebody that spends a lot of time in the shower I think it's important to have a good shower gel, one that helps your skin but also smells lovely! This shower gel is just the right consistency, not too runny as some gels often are. The gel is a bright yellow colour (blame those zesty lemons) and the smell certainly packs a punch. The citrus burst from the lemons smells really refreshing and I can still smell it on my skin later in the day. The shower gel also lathers very well something I also find a problem with some shower gels. You don't need too much of the product either, just squirt a small dollop on your loufa and away you go!
A very good shower gel with a really lovely smell, it also makes my skin feel really soft and clean afterwards. Will definitely be buying this product again!
