I know I have been trying and reviewing many of The Body Shop Shower Gels and today I have one more review on TBS Shower Gel – Satsuma Shower Gel and Cream(Rs. 425). This is my 3rd favourite of TBS shower gel. If you love fresh and fruity fragrance will fall in love with this shower gel. Create a zesty, invigorating shower experience! This refreshing, cleansing gel uses Satsuma peel essential oil to provide a natural citrus fragrance. The Satsuma Shower Gel is enriched with Community Fair Trade Organic Soya Oil from Brazil to repair the skin’s moisture barrier, thus helping to restore smoothness and suppleness. The soap-free, lather-rich formula is less drying to the skin than soap.
The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip open cap. The consistency of this shower gel is neither too thick nor too runny. It just perfect! I love the dark orange colour of this shower gel, it looks attractive on my bathroom shelf. It smells so so good! It is a sweet orange scent that does not get weird, is not too fruity or pungent, and is a nice pick-me-up in the morning. You just need small amout of product on body puff as it lathers up really well. It does not make the shower slippery. The smell lingers on me for 1-2 hours and makes me feel refreshed and rejuvenated. After shower my bathroom smells of oranges for entire day. This shower gel does not dry my skin. My skin feels so clean and healthy for entire day after taking shower with it.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a shower gel that not only smells great, but actually keeps you feeling lovely, refreshing and clean throughout the day! Satsuma is my absolute favorite scent from the Body Shop! I love the way it wakes me up in the shower. I see myself repurchasing this again and again. I am obsessed!

Today I am reviewing The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel(Rs.425) which I got in December month during Christmas sale. I have also reviewed The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream and Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel. I love to use shower gels and shower creams daily instead using soaps. I have many of different brands shower gels in my bathroom. I feel that The Body Shop has great variety of shower gels and they all smell heavenly good. This shower gel is packed with skin-softening oleic acid, olive oil has been used for centuries throughout the Mediterranean as a moisturizer. Legend has that athletes in ancient Greece would rub olive oil onto their bodies. So it’s only natural that our Community Trade organic olive oil should come from southern Italy where it’s grown on family farms. We pay the farmers of the Nuevo Cliento co-operative, our Community Trade partner, a fair and guaranteed price that enables them to work their land, build their future, and stay in their communities.
Packaging is the standard bottle of TBS, this shower gel comes in a transparent bottle with flip cap to dispense the product. This soap-free bath and shower gel contains organic, cold-pressed olive oil. It has a neutral olive scent and I find it great morning mood booster. The shower gel looks very dark green in the bottle. But once you take out some product in palm it seems to be transparent gel which has slightly green tint. The texture of it neither too thick nor too runny. It lathers very well so you need very less product for one time bath. The 250ml bottle will come for a long way. It does not make the skin feel too slippery. It cleans skin efficiently without making the skin dry. It leaves faint smell of olives on skin which I really like and it lasts on skin for about 1-2 hours. Even after shower my bathroom smells of this Olive Shower Gel for long time.
The Olive oil in it helps to condition skin. The skin becomes very smooth and gives a soothing effect after the wash. It is very gentle to my skin and have not caused any irritation or itchiness. It moisturises the skin well but still I need to apply body lotion after shower to moisturise and nourish the skin due to dry skin in Winters. I think during summer body lotions and moisturisers can be skipped after using this shower gel. This is my 2nd favourite shower gel of The Body Shop. Even my hubby loving it too, so this baby not going to last long as we both sharing the bottle. I think it will last two more weeks and then going to re-purchase it again.
I highly recommend this Olive Shower Gel to you beauties if you have not tried yet. I am not going to praise it more now, just you try it and you would know! If you have already tried Olive Shower Gel then please let me know your thoughts on it. Which one is your favourite The Body Shop Bath Product? Do let me know in comment section below.

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?

Today I am reviewing Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream and Butter Gloss (Rs. 195) which I got last month from Phoenix Market City Pune(Much More Shop). I have read and heard about Miss Claire Lip Products so much and according to many of reviewer Miss Claire Lip Creams are dupe of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I thought why not to try them so I got three shades from Miss Claire’s. The color range has so many nudes, pinks, purples and red, for a second I thought to pick each and every shade but then I controlled myself and got only three. I have not tried any NYX lip products yet but have heard and read enough reviews of Miss Claire Lip Creams so I can confidently say these are dupe of NYX Lip Creams.
These lip products comes in a standard clear plastic tube with sponge applicator. The packaging is very similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and Butter Gloss. The matte lip creams does not have any name on packaging, only the number is printed on bottom. They have mild vanilla scent that fades away after few minutes of application. All of them apply like a dream without any tugging or pulling. The texture is so smooth and buttery. They set on lips within a minute or two. All three are super pigmented, just need one swipe. The staying power of all is amazing, stays good 6 hours on lips even after drinking. Since 15A it is super matte, it does not transfer on glasses and tissues at all, which is a major plus point!! The matte lip cream need to apply over exfoliated lips so it does not settle into the fine lines. If you have dry chapped lips must apply lip balm as base. It does plump up the lips and gives the illusion of fuller lips.
15A is mix of brown and peach colour. It is perfect nude shade for every day wear. The matte finish of this lip cream is very comfortable to wear and feel like applied nothing on lips.
BG-01 Napoleon is a bright, cheery pink shade. This is perfect shade for spring and summer because it’s got that really happy pink tone to it. BG-11 Tres Leches is a neutral nude-pink shade. It has some brown tones in it that make it even more subdued. This is a classic shade that will work for every day wear. I find both very comfortable and moisturising on the lips. Both are non-sticky. These are pleasant to wear, though you do feel the formula on your lips. It imparts a gorgeous high intensity glossy shine to the lips. These are pigmented and opaque in just one swipe.
Overall they are super affordable lip creams and I am going to pick few more shades in my next visit to Phoenix Market City. I definitely recommend them if you do not want to spend much money on NYX Lip Creams on Butter Gloss. You can buy Miss Claire products from some local beauty stores in India. I think you may also find them on Flipkart and Amazon.
