The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel & Bath Lily

I have a new found obsession with shower gels, and where else to get them but from The Body Shop! I wanted to try something new (and not the usual fruity scents I use), so I got one in Olive.

The Body Shop says:
Best if you want to: Cleanse and moisturize your skin using a soap-free gel that leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh with a brisk green scent.
Best for: Normal to dry skin
How it works: Community trade organic olive oil helps to condition skin. Glycerin is a water-soluble moisturizer that enriches foam and lather.
The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel 250ml (P325.00)

This shower gel smells so clean and fresh - more like grass and cucumber than olive. This scent appeals to men also because it is not too sweet-smelling, but just mildly fragrant. It does not leave my dry skin drier, but it does not feel so moisturizing either. I still have to use lotion (for day)/body butter (for night) afterward. I like that it keeps my skin clean, and I look forward to taking my shower every time I know that I'll be using this!

Since I would love to preserve the lifespan of this shower gel, I had to have a bath lily! I got this for free during an event (thanks to The Body Shop). I used to think that this was overpriced for a bath lily, so I would just get those bath lilies from the supermarket or department store for just P30.00. But those never last for so long and had to be frequently replaced. After using this bath lily, I now know why it is priced as such. It's more durable than the cheaper versions, so you won't have to keep on buying a new one.

The Body Shop says:
Best if you want to: Increase the lather of your favorite shower gel with a lovely bath lily that gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells.
How it works: Suitable for all skin types, particularly dry skin that needs regular exfoliation. Product lathering benefits mean that you only need a small quantity of shower gel each time, so your product will last longer. Prepares skin to better absorb moisturizer by removing layer of dead skin cells.
Bath Lily (P195.00)

The bright orange color of this bath lily will surely brighten up your day! I like how dense this bath lily is, perfect for creating lots of lather from your shower gel. With this, you'd only need to use a 5-Peso coin sized amount of shower gel, pour it on your hands, and rub the shower gel to create a rich and foamy lather. Your shower gel will then last longer!

Would I repurchase? Maybe. The Olive Shower Gel is worth repurchasing, but I want to try their other variants, too. Satsuma or Watermelon & Eucalyptus from their new Earth Lovers Shower Gel line.
Available at all The Body Shop stores nationwide.
