Texture & Scent:

This shower gel is quite runny, so be careful not to squeeze the bottle too hard! :D This foams up quite well when it comes in contact with water:

This has an amazing scent - not really your traditional rose scent, but it leans more towards a fresh, greeny scent if you get what i mean! I really like it! :D


This shower gel comes in a plastic squeeze bottle with a flip top cap. I like that you can detach the cap, so it means that the bottle can be reused again!! :)

The dispensing hole:

Price & Availability:
This shower gel is priced at US$12 / RM24.90 each, and is available at all The Body Shop outlets as well as on their website! :)

My $0.02:

Some of you may know that i'm a HUGE fan of this scent! However, i can never bring myself to fork out 30 bucks for one shower gel that i'm gonna use up in a month!

Enters the Bodyshop sale! This was going at 50% off!! I got so excited that i stocked up quite abit on these babies!! Haha!! :D

This smells as amazing when used and in the bottle!! This not straight up your traditional rose - its very much fresher, yet there is a hint of flowery sweetness in it to keep it feminine and romantic! I love it!! :D The scent lasts awhile too after showering!! :D

I also love how this doesn't dry out the skin with daily use as with some of the other shower gels from this brand!

The only thing i didn't like about this product? The price! Seeing how quickly i go through the bottle within a month, it really adds up when you think of the amount spent on a yearly basis!! Ouch!

So to sum it up, i'm totally loving the product but absolutely loathing the price! I'll stock up when it goes on sale, but i have a horrible suspicion that it's gonna get discontinued soon!! :(

  2. Yup... RM30 one is too expensive!! But during sales can stock up la!! Hehehe!! :D

  3. I haven't tried any body wash from TBS, I will take a look at them because I'm always into the Tea Tree Oil and leave the shop! LOL

  4. Icic!! I seldom venture into the TBS store too... i'm almost only in there because of their sales or to get someone a gift! Haha!! :D

  5. I like Body Shop products, the scent is just so special and nice!
