“ Brand: Superdrug / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
I love the Original Source range and often buy it when its on offer, while I was shopping in my local Superdrug just before Christmas I noticed that they now do their own range similar to Original Source but cheaper. I'm not sure if this is a new range or if I have just missed it on the shelf. I bought a few of them one of which was Lavender & Camomile I love the smell of lavender so was sure I would like this one.
The Lavender & Camomile Shower Gel is sold in a clear plastic rounded bottle allowing you to see the clear lavender coloured gel inside, I always like clear bottles so I can see how much product is left. The shower gel has a simple black flip top lid which is flat allowing you to stand the bottle up.
The front of the bottle has the Superdrug logo, a little silver star, and states that the Lavender & Camomile shower gel is "Cleansing and soothing with an infusion of relaxing lavender and camomile". The label also shows a picture of lavender flowers and white flowers and informs the customer that the shower gel will give 100% happiness guaranteed!
The back if the label gives the ingredients, directions for use, safety advice and a small paragraph about the gel, it also states that this shower gel contains natural lavender and camomile extracts, has added skin conditioners, is PH balanced and soap free.
The shower gel has quite a thick gloopy consistency and smells gorgeous, it has a lovely natural earthy lavender fragrance with a slight medicated smell too, I assume this is the camomile, its a lovely combination that smells really clean. I always use a body puff in the shower or bath and I found the gel stayed on there without running off before I could use it and the bottle is easy to flip open with one hand even when wet. A little of the gel goes a long way and creates a lovely rich lather which leaves my skin smelling lovely and feeling really fresh and clean.
Although the shower gel doesn't claim to be moisturising I did find my skin felt quite soft after using it, I could also smell it faintly on my skin afterwards too. I can be a bit funny with some bath and shower products they sometimes make my hands a bit itchy but I had no problems using this at all.
Lavender & Satsuma is an ideal fragrance for both men and women making it an ideal shower gel for a family bathroom, although it has a slightly floral scent its not really what I would call girly.
I have been really pleased with the Superdrug Lavender & Camomile Shower Gel, at just 99p for a 250ml bottle its good value for money considering a bottle of Original Source shower gel of the same size will set you back more than double that, it smells gorgeous, it has a lovely clean smell and leaves my skin feeling soft, fresh and clean. When compared to more expensive brands I would say this range from Superdrug stands up very well and I would certainly recommend trying it.
