I adore spa range bathing products and was very excited to purchase some new products to try from the Body Shop in their recent sale. This shower gel looks so attractive and opulent. The bottle is an easy hold shape and is clear with a practical flip top lid. The gel is a thick texture with am opaque amber colour and suspended within the product is ground Adzuki beans for gentle exfoliation. The gel has a very subtle citrus scent with a floral hint which I cannot pin down. I was a little disappointed with the fragrance as I was expecting it to be more intense as is the norm with spa products. The gel lathers beautifully on a sponge or body puff but if you use it in this way you get no benefit at all from the exfoliation particles. I have used this gel neat on dry skin which is the only way you can gain any of the exfoliation properties. The gel contains tea seed oil, Soya oil and honey extract so rather than a water based gel texture it has a slightly oily feel on the skin which is beautiful! The formula is also soap free which is wonderful for sensitive skins. After bathing your skin feels soft, smooth, thoroughly cleansed with no dryness or tightness.
Aside from the slightly too subtle fragrance, this is a beautiful shower gel that has a beautiful feel on the skin

Strongest points
Beautiful thick consistency amber coloured shower gel with ground adzuki beans for gentle exfoliation. Soap free formula. Lathers beautifully on a body puff or a sponge and leaves skin feeling soft, cleansed and lightly moisturised. Beautiful delicate citrus/ floral scent that does not linger on the skin. Attractive, easy hold clear bottle with flip top lid
Weakest points
Fragrance is a little too subtle for a spa range product
Summary
Mildly exfoliating shower gel with the addition of beneficial oils and a soap free formula
