Hey guys! So I don’t really experiment much with my body cleansers, but when I spotted this shower gel online, I knew I had to have it. I would be lying if I said that the packaging did not lure me into buying it! So today, I’m going to review the Original Source Watermelon Shower Gel. Continue reading to find out if the product is worth giving a shot or not.
Price: Rs.300 for 250ml
The consistency of this shower gel is perfect; it’s neither too thick nor too thin. You only require a bit of this product for a shower, since a little goes a long way with this product. The shower gel contains jojoba oil and hence it is not at all drying. I would not say that people with dry skin can skip applying moisturizer after this, but oily skinned girls surely can! It also does not leave your skin greasy.
It lathers easily and cleanses the skin really well. It has a very mild refreshing fruity fragrance, which I love. I do not think it smells like watermelons but the fragrance is certainly fruity and not at all overpowering. The fragrance doesn’t last after the shower, which is a definitely a bummer. Although they claim to have used natural fragrance, the shower gel itself does contain chemicals.
The packaging is bright and beautiful. It has a flip cap on the bottom and is transparent, which will help you keep a track on the quantity left. The bottle is quite big and a little heavy so I don’t think it would be ideal for travelling, but there won’t be any spillage for sure.
The shower gel contains little beads, which do not serve any purpose whatsoever! They do not help in exfoliating your skin and neither do they burst while you rub them on your body. So I find their addition totally pointless. You don’t need to worry about them though, since they’re not at all harsh.
Let us sum up the pros and cons now:
- Perfect consistency
- Lathers easily
- Not drying
- Suitable for sensitive skin
- Fruity fragrance
- Convenient packaging
- Easily available online
- Fragrance doesn’t last after the shower
- The beads are pointless
I think this would be a great shower gel to try this summer. Do give it shot, especially if your love fruity fragrances.
