I received as a gift a lovely set of Sarah Jessica Parker products. Amongst the set were EDT Lovely perfume spray, body lotion and shower gel. These are all designed to be worn together to enhance and deepen the fragrance and to make it last longer. I actually have gone through the items one at a time and the last one I used was the shower gel – I saved that one till last.
The shower gel I have is very small and only 50ml in size. The standard sized tube of this is actually 200ml I think though I have no idea of the cost, as this was a gift, as I say. The packaging is very plain and simple but I don’t actually mind that at all.
The tube is plastic, pale pink and simple states Jessica Parker Lovely Shower Gel on the front.
The tube stands on it’s head in the shower and has a flip top lid and it really teeny tiny in size. This is a gorgeous shower gel and a real treat to use, just like the perfume, and what I consider to be a real luxury item. It really does smell a lot like the fragrance, and I love everything about it.
This shower gel foams instantly and creates really super rich creamy lathery suds, which feel glorious on the skin. It feels intensely moisturising and the smell is out of this world. I only ever need to use the tiniest amount of this shower gel as it seems to be really very concentrated and it always goes much further if I use one of my nylon scrunches to shower with.
The fragrance to this shower gel is one of lavender, amber, apple, orchid and musk. All of these richly intense fragrances work so well together to create a truly unique and inspiring aroma which seems to last on my skin for absolutely ages after I have had a shower. It lasts even longer, of course if I also use the perfume spray and the body lotion too. However, I have found that just on its own it still lasts for ages.
There is nothing at all negative I can say about this fantastic shower gel. It cleanses, moisturises, has a fantastic smell and lathers really fast with only the teeniest amount having to be used.
I love it and really recommend it.
I was fortunate enough to bag myself a real bargain in the January sales. I purchased a sjp gift set which comprised of 50ml perfume, 50ml body lotion and 50ml gentle bath and shower gel. The price was 50% reduced. From £30 to a fabtastic £15 bargain!!!
I have reviewed the perfume previously but i hadnt had the opportunity to use the shower gel. I have used it since though and i have to say it is deliciously indulgent.
The packaging is a lovely dusky pink plastic bottle with the flip opening on the bottom. This i would imagine will be beneficial when there is little of the product left as the gravity will force every last morsel out to the bottom. The pink bottle is complemented by gold lettering. I think this makes the product look expensive and attractive.
As i openend this bottle in the shower the scent of the perfumed shower gel was very subtle unyet strong enough to recognise the distinctive floral and womanly scent of the perfume. I put a small drop onto my shower puff and was very pleased and suprised to find that the foam that the one drop provided was exceptional.
The scent of the foam was invigorating and much stronger now that it was on my body. It was very cleansing and made my body feel very fresh and thoroughly revitalised.
When i got out of the shower i was able to still smell the scent when i went into my bedroom as the whole of the upstairs area was filled with this delicious aroma. It is so light that i found it complemented my lovely perfume excellently. I have to say that the scent is very sexy and although light it has sultry undertones. This brings about events which could be classed as advantages or disadvatages pending on how sexy your hubby is!!
The shower gel left me feeling fresh for day and combined with the perfume had great staying power on my skin. My skin also felt softer and moisturised. I have used certain shower gels in the past that have been a bit harsh for my skin, but this was gentle enough to leave my skin free of any irritation.
All in all i would certainly buy this shower gell again. Even at its full price. I find it a fresh and delightful shower gel that has great foaming power. I would only use this shower gel though when i was intending to use my sjp lovely perfume, as the shower gel may clash when being used with another perfume. It is a beautiful shower gel though and i for one will continue to use this for a long time to come.
