It has been a while since I last wrote a blog post. I’m sorry for that, I was just so busy and tired all the time. I felt like I needed a quick break. Today I’m back again with another review. Today I’m going to review my two new The Body Shop shower gels in the scent Wild Argan Oil and Piñita Colada. If you’re interested in finding out more about these two products, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with the Wild Argan Oil one. For some reason I always made myself think I’d hate this scent. I had literally no reason for that because I didn’t know what argan oil smelled like before, I hadn’t smelled this particular shower gel before and I have never heard anyone say that this particular shower gel smells bad. I just made myself think that. So when I smelled it I was quite surprised that I actually liked what I smelled.
But before we go into much more detail about the scent and everything about the product itself, I first want to mention how much I like the look of the packaging. I’m literally obsessed with the new packagings. It looks so much more fancy and pretty than before but it still has that TBS vibe to it. Love it.
So, back to the scent. This shower gel has a very unique scent. It’s a bit nutty, it’s warm, but it also has something fresh to it. I normally prefer using warmer scents during autumn and winter. And even though this is quite a warm scent, it does have something to it that makes me want to use it even when it’s 30 degrees outside.
This really is one of those scents that is perfect for those days you want to pamper yourself. At least that’s what it is for me. It smells luxurious and nice. Like you’re washing yourself with something very exclusive even though it’s just from The Body Shop.
Quality wise I have nothing bad to say about this shower gel either. It has a very nice texture, it feels really soft on the skin and it doesn’t feel drying at all. I really like the way it makes my skin feel and I like how it does give me that clean feeling without completely dehydrating my skin.
Overall I’m a big fan of this shower gel. It smells super nice, luxurious, warm and a bit nutty and it feels really nice on the skin. This is one of the best shower gels I have tried so far.
Onto the second one I bought. I told you that I always felt like it was very unlikely for me to like the Wild Argan Oil scent, but this scent was even more unlikely to be a favourite of mine. That because I absolutely hate, and I mean hate, the scent of coconut. For some reason I just really don’t like it and the scent sometimes even annoys me for some reason.
This Piñita Colada shower gel smells like pineapple and coconut. According to my boyfriend it actually smells like a real Piñita Colada. Because I don’t drink alcohol I have absolutely no idea if that’s true or not, but let’s just trust him on that one.
Like I said I absolutely don’t like the scent of coconut. So why don’t I hate the scent of this shower gel then? It’s not because you can’t smell the coconut, you definitely can. But for some reason the combination of the coconut, the pineapple and whatever else that is in here is nice, which makes the coconut not as bothering as it would normally be.
Enough about the coconut, let’s just tell you what this stuff smells like. The Piñita Colada shower gel smells really fresh and summery. It’s definitely a great option for those warm summer days when you just want to cool off and freshen up a bit. It’s fruity, it’s summery and it’s basically just the perfect everyday summer shower gel.
The texture and quality of this shower gel is pretty similar to the Wild Argan Oil one. The substance of this shower gel is a bit more cloudy than the Wild Argan Oil one is, but it doesn’t make much of a difference. It feels soft on the skin, it’s not drying and it leaves your body smelling really nice and fresh.
Overall this is, just like the other one, a great shower gel. I like that I have something that smells a little different from the things I’d usually buy and I like how fresh it is. I use it an awful lot now that it’s summer and I’ll definitely continue to do so!
I think it’s pretty clear that I love these two shower gels. I’m obsessed with the packaging, they scents are both really nice and very unique and the quality of the shower gel is just impressive. I think The Body Shop did an amazing job at creating these two shower gels and therefore I highly recommend giving them a try!
The TBS Piñita Colada & Wild Argan Oil shower gels are available online as well as in stores for €7,-.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post and let me know which shower gels are your favourite!
