As I mentioned in my last review it was my 20th birthday recently and for the ocassion I got a lot of wonderful presents but mostly perfumes - my family know thats the type of thing I will appreciate most so I ended up with quite a few sets. The best one in my opinion was the SJP NYC gift set I received - not only because I needed a new bottle of the perfume but because there was other products in the set with the same scent that I hadnt tried out. One of which was this 'SJP NYC Shower Gel' which I started trying out the very minute I got the set because I dont get to use many perfume shower gels. Im happy to say this shower gel is every bit as brilliant as the rest of the set and its one that I will be buying and using again - seperatly from the set or otherwise.
Price: 75ml tube - Around £4 [A set including this shower gel, a body lotion & a 50ml bottle of the perfume costs around £25 which is how I received the present.]
Stockists: Amazon & CheapSmells.
Other Info: This product is available in 50 & 75ml tubes. This product although it is heavily perfumed is suitable for all skin types and it shouldnt irritate your skin even if it is sensitive - it hasnt with me as yet so thats always a bonus.
This gel comes in a medium sized and VERY hot pink 75ml tube which I have to say is instantly noticable and a very nice colour! I like the fact that the lotion is in a tube rather than a bottle or a tub as it makes it much easier to apply and is much more hygenic - and I believe it comes in the same tube regardless of whether you get it in a set or buy it alone. On the front and back of the tube is all the information you could need - shelf life, ingredients, directions for use etc and if you have any additional questions or problems there is a website address you can write to with them so everything should be answered either on the tube or by the website. The packaging is gorgeous and looks fabulous on my bathroom shelf - its very SJP! Effective and stunning!
The gel itself is light pink in colour and is actually much thicker than I expected. That actually works in my favour though as it makes the product much better in my opinion. It still lathers up really well with minimal effort but it feels a little more nourishing and hydrating than most shower gels which I was not expecting I have to admit. This lathers up really well and very quickly so only a small amount is needed each time you want to use this - about a 5p piece worth is more than enough especially if you are using this with a shower puff so one bottle will last a really long time, so in the long run the price is worth it for me as I use this a lot and my tube has hardly anything gone from it.
The scent of this lotion was obviously the main reason I bought it and Im happy to say it has not let me down. As with the lotion this shower gel smells just like the real EDP and smells divine in my opinion - even better when all three products are layered up together - the smell is stronger and lasts longer but isnt overpowering in the slightest for me. It has the same gorgeous fruity and sweet fragrance which goes with the summery weather perfectly and although it is strong enough to be worn alone and still be noticable it does smell even better - and lasts longer - when you layer it up with the lotion & perfume. The scent - even when I use this alone - lasts all day long on my skin so my skin is left feeling really clean and hydrated and it smells amazing. I dont really want anything else from a shower gel to be honest and the effects of this on my skin are actually much better than I first expected - my skin actually feels much more hydrated when I use this which isnt something Id usually say about a shower gel. The scent is amazing and this makes me skin feel pretty great as well so I dont hesitate to recommend it - Ill be buying the set again for myself when all mine runs out!
Thanks For Reading.
