“ Brand: The Little Bubble Co / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
Smelling like a bakery isn't everyone's cup of tea, but personally I love sweet, dessert-like scents. So, when this chunky bottle of Vanilla Biscuit-scented shower gel caught my eye, I had to try it! And I wasn't disappointed - it is absolutely gorgeous.
Here goes... This product (packaged in a transparent bottle with a flip-top lid) announces itself as 'A Very Happy Bath & Shower Gel' and gives a handful of quirky bullet points:
"1) Why does the scent of vanilla fill me with childhood memores?
2) Be spontaneous... give a friend a piggy-back.
3) Say hurray for no parabens."
And urges us to recycle the bottle - as well as not to eat the contents. (Not as easy to resist as you might think!). It also mentions that the product hasn't been tested on animals and is suitable for vegetarians.
I'm not sure what piggy-backs have got to do with the price of eggs, but I can certainly agree that this is a 'very happy bath & shower gel'. Well, at least it makes me happy - I couldn't comment on the shower gel's own emotional well-being.
On opening the bottle, you are hit with a gorgeous vanilla, cakey scent, which fills the bathroom during and after use and smells good enough to eat. I've found not much is needed for each shower, maybe a fifty-pence piece sized dollop, as it is very creamy and lathers up well to form a good quantity of bubbles.
The gel also seems to make my skin feel softer and I think I can detect a hint of the scent on me after showering too. I'd love it to linger more, but this is probably asking too much of a shower gel. The scent does linger in the bathroom for a good while after I've showered, and it's a delight to go back into a bakery-scented bathroom!
Five stars for me for this gorgeous product - I'm looking forward to trying the other shower gels from this brand (Coconut Crème and Strawberry Sundae).
This product is sold at Boots and Waitrose, currently for £2.99 for 500ml.
