“ Brand: Superdrug / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
Today I am going to review the Plum & Red Cherry Shower Gel by Superdrug!
I really like Superdrugs own brand products! They smell amazing and are good value, so I always stock up on them. The bottles of the shower gels look especially good, being all black with lucious pictures of the ingredients. It's really hard to not buy them. When I saw this one, I just had to get it!
The shower gel comes in a plastic tube that is mainly black. You can squeeze it easily and it stands on it's head. The plastic cap is black as well. Below the brand name and the name of the product, the shower gel is described as a body wash "created with invigorating natural extracts leaving your skin smooth and soft." Below that, you can see a dark pictures of two cherries leaning against a plum. The fruit looks very beautiful, araising curiousity about the smell quickly!
On the back of the tube you get more information about the product. The shower gel is supposed to help you "indulge your natural side - and give in to the juicy fragrane of plum and red cherry". It is created with extracts of both fruits which are known to be "packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants" so you skin will be left "silky soft and smelling delicious".
The shower gel is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans and has been made without animal testing.
You should massage the shower gel over your budy using either hands, flannel of a puff. Then rinse thoroughly. Of course contact with eyes is to be avoided.
The ingredients are listed as well. The tube contains 200ml.
What it looks like
The shower gel is of a red colour, but clear instead of creamy. It is easy to spread on the skin and creates a nice foam. It is easy to rinse off as well.
This shower gel smells nothing short of what I expected! It is incredibly sweet and fruity and both plum and cherry are defenitely there! The plum somehow regulates the boldness the scent of cherry usually has and so they blend together perfectly. It simply is a great scent, especially for summer.
I was absolutely satisfied with how it cleaned my skin. The scent stays on the skin only ever so slightly. I felt refreshed and clean after using it!
The skin is lightly moisturised as well. I didn't really need a body lotion afterwards, so i'd say it is quiet friendly to the skin. It felt nice and soft after the shower!
How long does it last?
That might be the only downside. I was finished with the tube pretty quickly. It lasted me a little under two weeks, but I still find that acceptable. Maybe I am a bit spoiled by the incredibly lasting Body Shop products I've been using lately.
The skin's reaction
I had no problems at all. Allergics and people with very sensitive skin should check the ingredients before buying the product.
