It might seem a bit strange to write an entire post about the fact that you’re using up a shower gel but that’s basically what I’m doing today. In the past 19 years of my life it has only happened once that I finished a shower gel. Once. The main reason why this happens is because whenever I’m close to finishing one, I just completely stop using it because I don’t want it to be gone forever. But now it’s about to happen again and it’s about to happen to my favourite shower gel in the world which is why I wanted to share it with you. If you’re interested in finding out why I did (or almost did) manage to use up this shower gel and why I love it so much, make sure you continue reading!
This my friends is my beloved The Body Shop British Rose shower gel. It launched about a year ago and from the moment I read it had launched until now I have been in love with it. My mom and I are huge fans of the Atlas Mountain Rose collection by The Body Shop so it’s only logical for us to fall in love with this collection too.
Not long after it launched I bought a shower gel from the range (and a body butter). Later my mom also got herself a bottle of shower gel and for her birthday I gifted her the body butter. And spoiler alert: we love it both. I do think I love this one a little better than she does, since I feel like she’s still a slightly bigger fan of the Atlas Mountain Rose collection, but that’s totally okay.
So, what happened. I mean, I never finish a shower gel so why would I finish this one? The reason is: I decided to just use a shower gel no matter how much is left. If I like the scent I better use it before it goes bad or before I completely forget about it and never ever use it again.
Another thing that helped is buying a back-up of it. I know buying back-ups is a bad thing since I always end up never using the products for that long, but this time it helped. Knowing there was another bottle of heavenly smelling gel waiting for me I didn’t have to worry about not having it anymore. Of course this isn’t a limited edition scent and I can literally buy it at any point of my life, it did help me with not holding back.
Having said that, let’s go back to discussing what it is that makes this shower gel so amazing. For me it’s obviously the scent. I am obsessed with the smell of roses. But even if you aren’t that into roses, this shower gel can still be a hit.
In my opinion this shower gel smells like luxury rose petals drenched in rose water with a touch of even more rosy smelling things. It smells feminine, luxurious and romantic. It has a smell that lingers and because of that it makes you feel like the fabulous women you are all day long.
For me (and my mom) this is just one of the best shower gels ever created. Maybe even the best. The day I find out they’re discontinue this is the day I’ll buy a million bottles of this shower gel because it literally is that amazing. If you’re someone who doesn’t love shower gel so much they have a whole collection but just like to have one they really like, this is the one you should be going for, it really is worth it!
I think it’s clear that I love this shower gel and that I think everyone should have it, so I’m going to stop raving about it. Thank you so much for reading today’s post and be sure to let me know which shower gel is your holy grail!
