The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel Review


One more review on The Body Shop Shower Gel. I am reviewing The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel(Rs.425,250ml) which I got in December month. I have used this shower gel earlier too and I really liked it specially the fresh scent of it so while shopping online I added it to my cart. When it comes to shower gel, I am not overly fussy – so long as it smells nice, I am generally sold. In my previous post I have reviewed Cocoa Butter Shower Cream which you can find here. The Wild Argan Oil range is made of previous handpicked community fair trade wild argan oil, found deep in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Argan oil is traditionally used by the Berber womer, as part of their hammam beauty rituals, to protect and nourish their skin and hair from the harsh Sharan winds and fierce sun. It is rich in essential fatty acids – including linoleic acid(omega 6) and natural tocopherols, making it a superior skin-nourishing ingredient and earning it the title “Queen of Oil”.

The shower gel comes in a solid transparent plastic bottle with flip top. The shower gel is orangy brown in color. The consistency is medium. It has very gorgeous semi-sweet nutty fragrance which lingers on for about hour after bath. The scent is very refreshing and uplifting. I love how my whole bathroom smells of this shower gel while taking bath. The fragrance is not overpowering but not very subtle too. It lathers up very nicely compare to shower creams. As all the TBS shower gels and creams are soap-free, it does not make the sky dry.

Bubbling Bath is always the ancillary I gravitate to first. This Argan Oil and Honey infused treat hydrates and conditions the skin while the lovely scent lingers. It is also infused with Castor Oil & Glycerin which are known agents to preserve moisture of the skin. It is very moisturising and nourishing. You can skip applying body lotions or body butters for few hours after using this. It is that moisturising. It leaves the skin supple and comfortable. This Argan Oil shower gel felt really kind on my skin and did not leave it feeling dry as other shower gels seem to.

I definitely recommend The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel as not only does it smell incredible, but it also lathers really easily, which means a little product goes a long way. It nourishes skin while showering and after showering as well. I also looking forward to try some more products from Wild Argan Oil range.

So what do you think about this shower gel? Have you tried any products from The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Range? Do you have any recommendation?

You can buy The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel from here.

FUEL YOUR 10K HOURS Breakfast Review


I was very kindly sent to try and review FUEL YOUR 10K HOURS product range. I was really excited about this review and I’m a massive fan of breakfast and I eat like a Queen most mornings. I think breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, it sets you up for the day ahead. You should never skip your breakfast. It should be healthy.

They sent me 1x Nut Loaded Chunky Granola, 1x Instant mug of Porridge(it contains 6 sachet), 2x Liquid Breakfast in Strawberry, 2x Instant pot of Porridge in ChocoLate.

FUEL Nut Loaded Chunky Granola

The FUEL packaging is certainly different. It’s masculine black box and slightly angry-looking eye immediately command your attention! The large silver letters proclaiming FUEL YOUR 10K HOURS introduce the basic idea behind this whole range. FUELYOUR10KHOURS was inspired by Dr Anders Ericsson’s 10,000 hours theory. As FUEL themselves say “our products are designed to provide the morning sustenance to anyone on the 10k hours journey – whether they’re an athlete, artist, businessman, musician – anyone who is in the pursuit of excellence!”

It made with a blend of crunchy toasted oats called granola and a vitamin mix designed for active lifestyles. It loaded with extra flavour and available in three delicious options (Nut Loaded, Fruit Loaded and Chocolate Loaded). The granola is packed full of protein, fibre and vitamins to keep you going through the morning.

Big and Nutty blend in a wholesome mix of split and whole roasted nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts and coconut. Vitamin Infused to cater for particularly active lifestyles. Vitmamins E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 and Folic Acid B9. With Guarana a natural energy booster. The fruits of the guarana plant contain natural caffeine giving you the energy boost you need to start of the day.

FUEL also suggest these ideas:

I totally enjoyed this nut loaded crunchy granola.

This is again very easy to make, Add boiling water to line on inside of pot, stir thoroughly and then replace lid. Leave to stand for 3 minutes and remove lid, stir and enjoy. It is quite handy too as you adding water into mug so you can take away with you when you are in hurry.

I’m a huge fan of porridge, it’s one of my favourite breakfasts,but I’ve never tried an instant porridge pot of this type before. I probably had quite low expectations about the flavour, but I’m happy to admit I was completely wrong. I loved the Chocolate flavour. The whole thing was very filling and satisfying, and I’ll definitely be trying these again and other flavours too.
