It is already hot even before the official start of the Summer and what more do we need other than having a calming shower with soothing fragrance. And when it is a body shop Product there is no turning back. I love all their products especially there is always a special love for bath and body products. And this particular variant was there in my bucket list for quite a long time and when there was a black-Friday offer I just jumped in and grabbed this as my first product. Let’s see if it deserves all the hype .

Packaging: It comes in a very usual packaging of body shop but still stands unique and attractive. Bottle is quite sturdy and I have traveled with it couple of times and not faced any issues. So I would say it is as a travel-friendly one. Product comes in a see through transparent baby pink bottle with a sturdy black cap and when I say sturdy it is actually super sturdy. I usually struggle a lot to open the cap in the shower, so you can happily carry this bottle as it is a complete leak-proof one.
Fragrance: I always have at least 3 different variants in my bath room but this one has to be my special one since I don’t use it daily and save it for special days. This has that real rose’s smell, nothing artificial which is a big “Yay”. I have heard that these roses are grown in a special organic farm and it’s no miracle that it has that heavenly smell.
More about the product: I love the fact that TBS does not harm any animal for its business and I wish one day every brand becomes as such. This gel is thick in nature and has proper gel consistency. Just one dollop of the product should be sufficient to use as per my experience. It lathers up well and makes you feel super clean.
One thing about this product is that it does not make your skin dry post shower and like all other shower gels you cannot expect the fragrance to be long lasting. However, I am happy that it stays at least 2 hours post wash and one can definitely increase its longevity of smell by layering up body butter or lotion and body mist from the same range which is also recommended by the company too.
Overall verdict: I will definitely recommend this product since I feel it is a must try one especially in this season. All we need is a good refreshing shower before we start the day and to relieve ourselves after a hectic day.
- Heavenly fragrance
- Disclosing complete Ingredients list
- Sturdy Packaging
- Affordable for a TBS product
- Does not make you dry post usage
- Gel like thick consistency
No cons for me honestly
