I am always on the look out for bargains and I picked a few bottles of this up in the Christmas sales last year.
===Price & availability===
This is only available from the Body Shop, online and instore, although I have an outlet store just me, I always find that the best deals are online, I picked this up when it was half price, with an additional 40% off and I managed to get some cashback too. There are two different sizes available, either 250ml or 750ml and the price is £4 or £6 depending on the size.
I picked up the larger size which comes in a clear plastic bottle which is topped with a pump, on the front of the bottle is a picture of a big strawberry and the product information and brand in white lettering. The gel is bright red in colour.
As soon as I dispensed a small amount onto my shower puff, the fresh smell of strawberries is evident straight away and best of all, the fragrance transfers onto my skin and stays there for a good few hours after showering. Unlike other Body Shop body washes I have used in the past, this one is a little on the thin side but having said that, I dont need to use much to get a good lather and as soon as I add a little bit of water, I get an notable amount of lather. I do find that as I lather the product up, the strawberry fragrance gets stronger.
When washing, the body wash feels really soft against my skin and did a great job at cleaning me up. Apparently, the shower gel is soap free which means that it wont dry your skin out, I must admit, I find this to be quite true and my skin does feel nice and soft after use.
I would definitely recommend this and I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
I absolutely adore the smell of strawberries but it is such a difficult smell to get right and more often than not it smells too sweet and artificial and can be sickly after wearing it for a while.
The Body Shop do a great range of strawberry products and I like to treat myself to them when I am in the mood for something sweet and fruity.
I like the Body Shop strawberry products more so than any other brand because they have managed to get the balance between sweet but wearable just right. Sometimes with strawberry products I am always reminded of children’s fragrances but they have managed to make this be sophisticated enough for adults.
I love the selection of shower gels in the store and the strawberry one stands out on the shelf thanks to the bright red colour.
It costs £4 for a bottle so it isn’t expensive for a little treat.
It is soap free but still cleans skin really well. With it being free of soap it makes it less drying than some other shower gels so you are left with nice clean skin that feels comfortable and not dry and tight.
It smells gorgeous and scents the skin afterwards though lightly so you don’t have to worry about smelling of strawberries all day. Personally when I am in the mood for this fragrance I like to go all out and layer loads of the products together because I think it is worth smelling a little bit stronger of it because it is just so nice.
Just recently, on the run up to Christmas I have been trying to use up all of my half used up (and the likes!) of bath and body products and this I have been using all week to simply finish it off in the hope that I shall be getting some lovely goodies off Santa!
This usually costs £4.00 for a 250ml bottle, I bought mine when on holiday a while back as I forgot to take my shower gel with me and if my memory serves me correctly I bought it for £2.00 on offer so if interested in purchasing this do keep your eyes peeled for it when it is on offer!
The bottle this comes in is see through plastic so you can see the lovely rich red coloured shower gel in it and it has a flip top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole and on the bottle we are told what it is and who it is by and things like the size and ingredients used in it plus contact details for the manufacturer are clearly listed. Its a nice looking and high quality looking bottle I think.
This is designed to be used as a bath or shower gel. I have noticed other people in their reviews have said that they use it as a bubble bath and this is not that without using loads of the product, it really doesn't make a lot of bubbles so when The Body Shop say to use it in the bath they obviously mean use it 'in' the bath.
I find that a little of this red, transparent gel goes a very long way indeed. It smells wonderfully rich and sweet and like naturally of strawberries and not fake or chemically so.
It lathers up nicely, releases its scent and feels soft and gentle in use. I can easily shave my bits and bobs with this is and it rinses off easily.
My skin is left feeling really fresh, I smell nice all day and it doesn't agitate my sensitive skin at all.
I wouldn't say that this product is all that moisturising however it doesn't dry my skin out either and all in all I really like this one and feel that even at its full retail price its worth if you like strawberries!
Only available from The Body Shop.
This is a lovely shower gel not perfect but really nice. I think this will be perfect for the warmer months. That is why I originally purchased this was for a pick me up because it's so cold in britan!! I think this will be best though when it's hot because it cleans really well to the point where on some it could be drying. For me I mix it with my Soft Soap Body Butter Strawberry Smoothie to get more moisture. Together with the butter it works fine and doesn't strip my skin. It leaves a nice not overly sweet scent that you can smell. It is light so it doesn't overpower perfumes and for me with THB Strawberry body butter it's a perfect Winter pick me up.
I use a Japanese Salux so I do not need a lot of gel to get a good lather, but it lathers very well. I also purchased this for very cheap so I will repurchase because THB has a lot of sales. I think I will enjoy this more in the Summer. That's when I am taking more showers because I'm always outdoors. So this will be perfect! Also if you are prone to getting dry definitely use a body butter after obviously because it can be drying for some. I like the Strawberry and Grapefruit it really gets you ready for the warm months to come which, cannot come soon enough;) I highly recommend this product it is really good
I adore Body Shop products and i also adore having baths so this is a good combination for me.
My daughter bought me this as a gift and it is lovely. i like fruity smelling products.
I have various Body Shop goodies and this is one which I really like, the smell is the best thing about it, it really is just lovely.
This comes in a lovely bottle which is see through so looks lovely with the sunshine shining through it as it's rich red inside. I love having this on my windowsill, it really lights up the room!
You need to put a good glug of this into the bath. If you only put a bit then you won't be able to get many bubbles. A good glug is usually sufficient and you need to give the bath a good stir too to get them going! If you don't then don't expect many bubbles!
It is lovely. The scent of strawberries fills the room and it's lovely it is good enough to eat/drink! The scent stays throughout the bath too which is wonderful. The bubbles don't last all the way through though they tend to burst quite quickly which is a shame. The water is also slightly coloured pink too.
I love using this and my grandchildren like it too I think they like the fact the water goes pink! It is a wonderful product. I use it as a bubble bath not as a shower gel so I cannot comment on how it works as a showergel but it certainly smells divine!
WHAT IS IT?
This is shower gel that is made by The Body Shop. It has got the fragrance of strawberry and can be used as bubble bath also if that is how you would like to use it.
WHAT I THINK
I have used this shower gel many times and I have used alot of other strawberry produce from The Body Shop because it has been my favourite of their natural fruit fragrances for many years.
You get quite a lot of bubbles when you use this as a shower gel but I have not used it very often as bubble bath because the smell does not come so strong and you need to use alot of the gel to make enough bubbles for your bath to be enjoyed.
I use it with a sponge in the shower and I can cover my body with bubbles by using only a small amount of shower gel.
It makes me feel clean and I think the smell is beautiful and very natural of fresh and sweet strawberries. The smell does not linger for very long on my skin and that is why I use some of their other strawberry produce also so that I can build up the fragrance when I would like to smell of strawberries instead of one of my perfumes.
It makes my skin feel soft but sometimes I have to put body cream on after my shower because it is not as moisturising as some of the other shower gel produce that are made by The Body Shop.
A bottle of strawberry shower gel from The Body Shop costs £4 but they have alot of price promotions and I do not think that I have paid the full price ever for it and if I have it has only been one or two times out of many purchases. I like the smell so much and the way it makes my body feel clean so I would buy it even if I had to pay the full price for a bottle of this shower gel.
5 Dooyoo Hearts.
I have my doubts as to how natural and fair trade Body Shop is since they sold out to L'oreal. When you look at the contents of the products many are far from natural and I think they are expensive at full price so I only ever buy anything from Body Shop when they have their half price sales.
I got this for about £2 which I feel is just about okay for this but at full price forget it.
This is a sweet scented, fruity strawberry shower gel. It is a clear pinkish reddish liquid . I have used this as a shower gel and as a bubble bath and it works well as either.
The scent is not my favourite but it is what is is - strawberry and sweet so not a surprise really given the name.
I honestly don't feel this is any much different from cheaper brands of shower gel. It is nice enough but nothing special or original in my view.
I think it might appeal more to the younger females and I can't see the men going for this one much at all.
This comes in the standard Body Shop recyclable plastic bottle which is quite short and fat and this is okay to hold when in the shower or bath but if you have small hands it could be hard to hold when slippery and wet.
After I have used this gel in the bath or shower and then dried myself off my skin feels fine, neither overly tight and dry nor specially moisturised either.
The scent doesn't linger long on my skin but it does fill the bathroom with the scent when I use it.
My verdict would be okay if you can get it for half the price but not worth paying the full price as there are just as good ones for a lot less money.
The Body Shop Strawberry Bath & Shower Gel comes as a 250ml sized bottle at a cost of £4. I feel this is overpriced for the quality of content. The gel is also available in gift sets with body butter, polish and a bath product. The ingredient list is unnecessarily long and the chemical combination results in an artificial fragrance.
Aqua/Water (Solvent/Diluent), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Surfactant), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Surfactant), Glycerin (Humectant), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emulsifier), Sodium Chloride (Viscosity Modifier), Trisodium Sulfosuccinate (pH Adjuster), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Mel/Honey (Natural Additive), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate (Viscosity Modifier), Fragaria Ananassa Seed Oil/Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil (Natural Additive), Benzophenone-4 (Ultraviolet Light Absorber), Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Ultraviolet Light Absorber), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Denatonium Benzoate (Denaturant), Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract/Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract (Natural Additive), CI 14700/Red 4 (Colour), CI 17200/Red 33 (Colour).
During the Shower:
As soon as you open the room will be full of the scent of strawberries. The thick gel lathers up and goes quite far. I only use a little squirt. There is an overwhelming smell of strawberries with something chemical which makes the strawberry smell somewhat fake. I really don't like the black seeds they put into it. They have to be washed off the skin extra well and I end up checking they've all gone but I suppose they help make the skin soft.
After the Shower:
The gel does make my skin feel smooth with no adverse reaction. The fruity-chemical scent lingers but the smell is a bit too sweet and I find it gets sickly.
I think £4 is too much money as the gel lasted me about two weeks certainly not much more. This is not good value compared to other products and the scent is too strong for me. However, it did feel nice to use and certainly left me feeling very clean. It's a product that is a best seller. I am mystified at this. I think teenagers would enjoy this product but I won't purchase again.
While browsing over the Christmas shopping period my local Body Shop i noticed a couple of offers were on the shower gels. The 750ml pump dispenser Strawberry shower gel was on offer for £4.20 that shopping evening so I bought that one and the Mandarin shower gel.
For the size of the bottle I thought the price was very good so I would give it a try I wasn't disappointed. The bottle has a pump dispenser which is very handy as you only manage to get a certain amount of gel at a time. I have before now wasted so much not realising the consistany of the liquid and how much I need to use. The gel lathers up really well and if you are using a bath lily, you won't use much at all.
The smell is very fruity and reminds me as a child, if you can remember strawberry jubblies, very sweet and quiet a strong fragrance. When I say strong I don't actually mean overpowering. I notice I can have a shower in the morning and by 11 I can still smell the strawberries.
I must admit now I look forward after a hard day at work to a nice refreshing bath in the evening. The smell of strawberries reminds me that summer is not too far away.
I am going to stock up on this next time its on offer as a real family favourite.
Looking at the bottle it does state -
This product contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethopia. Through our trade African beekeepers can continue to practice traditional beekeeping, using hives handcrafted from local sourced materials. This method promotes healthy bees and deters logging.
Every little helps towards a healthy planet.
I'm a big lover of the body shop products and a big lover of fruity scented shower and body products. I've tried this shower gel many times before but over the Christmas season of 2013 the body shop have had a huge sale. Normally for a 250ml bottle of this is £4 but in the sale this was £3. Considering how small the bottle actually is it isn't very cost effective. They do all their shower products in larger bottles of 500ml and 750ml but I don't like to use the same scent shower gel for too long so I found that these sizes were too big for me so I always go for a 250ml bottle.
When using shower gel I always wash with a flannel and not put the product straight on to my skin. I only used a grape sized amount to begin with and when I first opened the bottle the strawberry scent was very strong which was amazing to smell. This lathered up straight away without putting in too much effort to create bubbles. As I rubbed this everywhere it lathered up even more. I only had to use two grape sized amounts in one wash to finish my shower.
This 250ml bottle will last me a couple of weeks but I still don't think this really justifies the price. I also doesn't leave a scent on my skin which is disappointing because I love fruity smells on me. Despite this, this shower gel was lovely to use and made me feel fresh, fully cleansed and feeling great so I will be using this product again
This is my favourite of the Body Shop shower gels. I received it in a coconut and strawberry gift basket last Christmas, which I was really pleased with as I love body shop products, and don't normally buy them, as they are a little on the expensive side. Not only does the strawberry shower gel smell gorgeous, it feels good on your skin too. It is soap free, which is a plus with those who have particularly sensitive skin. And it contains real strawberry seed oil, this must be why it smells so yummy! I always try and buy products that contain natural ingredients, but must admit I am drawn to products that have nice packaging and appearance. The bright red colour does just that, but you do wonder, what they have to put into the products to give this appearance. Having said that I have never had any problems with The Body Shop products and they pride themselves on using natural ingredients, so I would hope they don't use anything that could be potentially harmful.
It's a reasonably well known fact among my friends and family that I love The Body Shop products so for Christmas I recieved rather a lot of this stuff! One of the gifts I recieved was this Strawberry Shower Gel which came in a gift set along with a few other products from the range. I've recently gotten around to using these products and shall review my experiences with this bottle of shower gel.
The product can be bought from The Body Shop's high street stores or website. The shower gel is available in three sizes, 60ml costing £2, 250ml costing £4 and 750ml costing £8.
Packaging is basic but pleasant looking. It comes in a clear plastic bottle with flip top lid. The deep red colour of the shower gel is visible through the bottle giving the packaging a nicer look whilst also making it easy to see how much product is left in the bottle. The Body Shop's logo can be found on the bottle as can the product name and description. The back also contains the usual ingredients list.
This is a soap-free shower gel which is something I particularly like about The Body Shop's shower gels as I find they still clean well without drying out or irritating the skin. It also contains real strawberry seed oil and is described as being 'lather rich'.
As a general rule I love The Body Shop's fruity smelling products because they always smell so natural, almost like the real thing. This isn't the case for the strawberry scent though. I find this is really artificial smelling. It's still clearly smells of strawberries but that rather overly sweet, typically cheap artificial strawberry scent which is rather disappointing in a The Body Shop product.
It does, however do it's job well. I would certainly describe this shower gel as 'lather rich' and a pea sized amount on my sponge lathers into masses of bubbles which easily washes my entire body making the bottle last longer. The scent of the product is really detectable when in use and does linger in the bathroom after use too. If this scent were nicer I'd really like that but I'm not completely sold on the smell of it myself. It does linger on the skin too, again this would be more of a positive point if it smelt nicer. There are loads of products in this range though such as body lotion and butter, body oil, EDT and body mist etc so if you do like this smell then layering it is really easy.
I've no qualms with its cleansing ability. My skin does feel refreshed, clean and revitalised after washing with this shower gel. The soap free factor makes sure my sensitive skin isn't irritated or completely dried out after using this.
All in all, I feel a little disappointed in this scent and I don't think I'll be purchasing again for this reason alone. It does do it's job though and that's the most important thing in my book!
=The Body Shop Strawberry Bath & Shower Gel=
I recieved a 50ml bottle of these Strawberry Bath and Shower Gel in a gift set for Christmas, I have seen it in the shops, but have never brought it before, as I tend to like a sharper shower gel, but I was ready to give this a go.
The Shower Gel is a Body Shop own brand product and can be brought in-store and in-line. It is available in a 250ml sized bottle this generally retails at £4, as well as in gift sets, or in 50ml bottle, which is ideal for travel, although I don't have a price.
The bottle is a plastic bottle, with a white screw top lid, that you flip up and squeeze for the shower gel to be dispensed. The bottles are made from recycled plastic. There is a small see through label which explains about the product, the size and the ingredients of the product.
=The Shower Gel=
The gel contains real strawberry seeds, as well as honey.
Once you open the bottle the smell of strawberry immediately comes to forefront, and it just reminded me of strawberries and cream. This is a sweet smelling product.
=As a Shower Gel=
You only need a little squirt on the shower puff and almost immediatley the shower gel lathers on your skin. It is soft and smooth, but does leave little bits of the black seed on your skin, I thought I had nits the first time that I used it.
=As a Bath Foam=
This is going to sound an odd confession but I had my first bath in 4 years, and it was luxury, I have a walk in shower at home, and the hotel we were staying in the bath was lovely and deep, so I thought I would try a bath one night.
=Over did the bubbles=
As it is so long since I've ran a bath, I forget how much bubble bath to use, I used about a 1/4 of a 50ml bath. The bath was full of bubbles, when I got in there was about 3 inches of water and about 12 inches of bubbles. I felt an fool as I was trying to run some more water by using the shower head, but this just kept making more bubbles, much to my daughters amusement, who went and got the camera to take a photo.
I have to give the bubbles a 10/10 for covering the important bits!!
I spent 30 minutes just soaking in the bubbles, they lasted really well, even when I emptied the water, there was still bubbles in the bath the next day!
After the bath my skin felt so soft and velvety, but I wasn't sure if that was partly down to how much bubble bath I had used.
A fairer assessment would be based on the use within the shower, as the bottle lasted me nearly a week. My skin felt soft, refreshed, and smelt of strawberries, my skin felt clean, and did not feel tight at all.
Even a couple of hours later I could smell the strawberries on me, I was asked what perfume I was wearing at this lady thought the strawberry was an unusual addition and wanted to buy some. I had a big smile, and she was impressed when I said it was from the shower gel.
=Would I buy again=
I would buy this again, but not for an everyday use, as for me I found it to be too sweet, but that was my personal taste. Overall this is a 5/5 product, and I there is a wide range of products within the strawberry range.
With all the nice weather that we have been having lately I have been enjoying using lighter and more fruity smelling products. Some of my favourites are from the Body Shop as I really like their selection of ranges.
I have been alternating between the strawberry, pink grapefruit and Satsuma ranges as these are my personal favourites as I also like the white musk but I use that mainly when the weather is a little colder and crisper as I find the fruity ones much more refreshing in warm weather.
I used to absolutely love strawberries in my beauty products but lately I have found myself not being as keen as I once was. The strawberry shower gel from the Body Shop is still lovely but it just doesn't seem as nice as it used to so I am not sure if they have changed the formulation or else my tastes have just changed a little.
I buy my shower gels in 250ml bottles which cost me £4 but you can also get them in smaller and larger bottles too.
The bottles are quite plain and are made of recycled plastic and inside the gel is a nice red colour.
It contains real strawberries seed oil alongside honey and other ingredients. It's funny that they mention that it contains real strawberry oil because I think this smells slightly artificial. It is sweet and I can definitely smell the strawberries but it doesn't smell as natural as it once did. If you like the smell of strawberries then you should still like this a lot.
As a shower gel this works great as it lathers up loads on a puff and it cleans my skin well and doesn't make it feel dry and tight. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and not dry. If I am using this I normally go the whole hog and use the strawberry moisturiser as well but if I was in a rush this wouldn't make my skin uncomfortable all day if I had to skip the moisturiser.
I like the shower gels from The Body Shop because I think they offer really excellent value for money. They might cost a little bit more than a shower gel from Boot's would but I only need a tiny bit on my puff to get loads of foam so they last me for ages.
The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel
Last Christmas I received this in a box set from my neighbour. The box contained the Body Shop Strawberry collection basically! This shower gel, the soap, the body butter and the body polish. Around 2 months ago I remembered about it (oops... I know!) and decided to dig it out as I was going to an engagement party. Here are my experiences with it:
The gel comes in a clear squidgy bottle with the body shop logo and a very appetising picture of some juicy strawberries! I have the 250ml bottle which is a great size for me, but I think there is a smaller bottle as well which I assume is a "tester" like bottle. The bottle is quite short and stocky which is better for me when I am in the shower as I quite often knock over the tall skinny bottles! I think the bottle is actually great at its job though as even with slippery wet hands it is easy to grip and to squeeze.
The only problem I do have with the bottle is the lid. It is a flip top lid and can be quite fiddly to open at times. It isn't a major problem though and I work through it!
So far, I have loved the shower gel. It smells delicious, it can cover my whole body without much being used (it spreads far in other words) and it makes my skin feel refreshed and smooth. The one downside is that the smell doesn't last that long, only for an hour or so after you get out of the bath.shower I find.
In case anyone is allergic etc., here are the ingredients from The Body Shop's own website.
Aqua (Water) (Solvent/Diluent), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Surfactant), Glycerin (Humectant), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Surfactant), Cocamide DEA (Surfactant), Coco-Glucoside (Surfactant), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emulsifier), Parfum (Fragrance), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Glycine soja (Soybean Oil) (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Fragaria vesca (Strawberry Juice) (Natural Additive), PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate (Surfactant), Propylene Glycol (Humectant), Benzophenone-4 (Sunscreen), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Citral (Fragrance Ingredient), CI 17200 (Colour), CI 14700 (Colour).
Overall, I would say it's worth trying it out, even if it's just for a little treat.
A refreshing cleansing gel that lathers up in the bath or shower to leave your skin feeling clean, fresh and subtly scented /
