A while back I tried this Rituals Zensation Blossom Foaming Shower Gel and I loved it. Ever since then this has set the bar for every shower gel I try and it’s definitely a tough one to beat.
Still, I thought you’d like to know about two more shower products that I’ve been trying. The first is from Superdrug.
It’s the Superdrug Strawberry & Raspberry Shower Foam. This was given to me as part of a challenge from Superdrug. They asked me to try some of their own brand products in place of their usual brands so that I could compare quality and also save money in the long run. You can see more about that challenge here. The shower foam has a gorgeous fruity fragrance (ooh I love alliteration!). The product comes out of the can as a gel but changes to foam as soon as it hits the skin. I tend to use it on a shower puff (is that what you call one of those scratchy things?) I found that it isn’t as rich as the Rituals brand and that you need more of the product but otherwise it does a really great job. And the plus is that it only cost £1.99 here!
The other new product that I tried (well it was new to me) was the Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil Foaming Skin Wash. I had high hopes for this product as I had met the lovely people from Austalian Bodycare earlier in the year at the Pegasus Beauty Showcase. They told me all about the amazing company and products and I liked everything that I tried but…..I’m so sorry the product works really well and foams nicely …..I can’t bear the smell – it’s indescribable but I just loathe it. It doesn’t smell fresh and clean – just awful!
They say it’s
“an all over body wash with a non-irritating soap formula. Formulated as a liquid that creates foam during dispensing. A small volume of soap in a dose is expanded to a large volume by addition of air. Improved “spreadability” of a foam compared to a high viscous ordinary body wash. Addition of allantoin for skin maintenance /repair. Contains lactic acid to condition skin. Low but still significant content of Tea Tree Oil (0,5%). Low concentration for intimate washing after Brazilian and Hollywood waxing. Low pH (due to lactic acid). !
If you think that it might just be me that it doesn’t suit or you recognise the benefits of the formula and want to give it a go it’s on sale here for £12.35.
So what’s the verdict? My favourite was Rituals but for value for money it has to be Superdrug!
