shower gel solutions

liz earle bergamot & ginger creamy shower nectar*, ren morrocan rose otto body wash*, imperial leather citrus burst shower gel, organic surge citrus mint shower gel*

I think I'd put shower gel under beauty things that I really hate buying. Along with razors and toothbrushes, it's one of those things Im just not that fussed on. They dont particularly exciteI have a regular rotation of favourites though and today Im talking my picks of the body wash bunch.

Organic Surge Citrus Mint Shower Gel is my daily use pick of the bunch. A zingy minty, lemony and orangey gel which really invigorates and refreshes. It feels tingly and energising on those cold winter mornings and really sets me up for the day. Then I like the Liz Earle Bergamot & Ginger Cream Shower Nectar (sounds super fancy). I adore the scent of Bergamot, its warming and comforting while being zingy and fresh at the same time. Super rich and creamy and feels sooooo sothing. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth with a lingering scent. While Im not a huge rose scent fan I do really like the Morrocan Rose Otto Body Wash from REN. It feels really calming and soothing, delicate without being overpowering. Overall it just feels luxurious without being too much.A more budget friendly pick would be the Imperial Leather Citrus Burst. Can you tell I like citrus body washes? This is a great cheap drugstore buy that really wakes me up in the morning and makes me feel fresh.

  4. I tend to rotate my showergels, I personally do not have a favorite but I just run into the store and sniff the ones with a pretty bottle and then I buy one the that smells the best.

  5. I do like the Ren...the only problem with the that the inside goes a strange shape...when you are half way through!! If that makes sense....;(

  6. great selection, i love the imperial leather one! however the organic surge citrus mint sounds lush, must try this :)

  7. I don't actually have a favourite as like you I don't think about it that much when buying it. At the minute I am really liking the dove one which I got for Christmas.

  8. That Liz Earle one sounds aaaaaamazing! I don't have a favourite at the moment and tend to just pick whatever is cheapest but right now I'm hooked on the Sugar Crush scent from Soap & Glory so am loving the body wash, scrub AND body butter of that smell!x

  9. I like shower gel from The Body Shop and Yves Rocher.

  10. I love the Ren Rose Body wash however that Citrus Burst looks absolutely divine! I absolutely love citrus scents, they are so fresh!! x

  11. I rarely stick with the same shower gel - I just see what's on offer. Similar kind of ilk of those you've mentioned is Nivea's Happy Time. It's really nice and refreshing but rejuvinating at the same time.

  12. Have you tried any of the Body Shop Shower Gels? Those are some of my favourites.

  13. the organic surge sounds lovely ! i love citrus and invigorating smells, lemons, eucalyptus... yummy !

  18. You can rely on citrus to wake you up. I had a real phase of only using Lush's Happy Hippy, then discovered Original Source did a similar one too! I love Imperial Leather, such a good budget brand (used it loads as a student as there are always offers on!)
