Review: original source raspberry and cocoa shower 

Do you remember when Original Source first hit our shelves with their Mint, Lemon or Lime shower gels? I was a teenager back then and thought they were the best thing ever!

Today it’s not my usual choice to shower with but this caught my eye on the supermarket shelf, one sniff and it was in my trolley! 

 

The packaging is pretty much the same clean lines, clear labeling with a funky edge. So let’s get to the most important the scent… It smells of just what it says if does: raspberry and chocolate, mmmm smells good enough to eat! 

The gel is a bright raspberry colour on your skin which in my opinion isn’t the most attractive looking. When I squeeze out a swirl on my sponge it reminds me of a Swiss roll cake! 

The formular is vegan and does it’s job of cleansing your skin really well with lots of foam leaving your skin squeaky clean and fresh. I prefer a luxurious feeling creamy cleanser with less foam that leaves your skin feeling hydrated.

The scent of this sweet seductive shower gel is most definitely it’s selling point. It’s tempting to try out all others in the range specially with such a low price point however, I’ve decided that it doesn’t really suit my skins needs. 

I picked mine up with my weekly food shop, they are always on offer in supermarkets or drugstores. You can purchase here

Have you tried any of the intense new versions? I’ve just read that they have a new all-in-one moisturising shower gel on offer.

bliss triple oxygen instant energizing mask™

20130615-112957.jpgThis is like a mini facial in a bottle. I’ve used it 3 times and completely hooked already! I love that I can use it in the shower in the morning, it goes on damp skin, the consistency is a gel, it smell is subtle but of fresh oranges, it really wakes me up and my skin in the morning!

20130615-113247.jpgMassage in, the gel consistency is light and non sticky, easy to distribute all over the face avoiding the delicate eye area. As you massage the gel it activates and little bubbles start appearing, it smells gorgeous!

20130615-113729.jpgThen it forms into a full froth, this is the exciting bit. It’s a really nice feeling on the skin you can feel the bubbles doing their thing! It feels fresh and luxurious and most important of all I have time to use it as my daily (3 times a week) routine.

20130615-114225.jpgLeave on for 5 mins, which gives me enough time to wash my hair! Then after 5mins rinse off and pat dry. Tone and moisturise and normal. I use bliss triple oxygen +c energizing mask, see my post https://secondblonde.wordpress.com/2013/03/17/bliss-triple-oxygen-c-energizing-cream/ Team up with the bliss triple oxygen instant energizing eye gel. I’m about to start using this so will post my review.

Results: Fresh clean energized skin, completely rid of dullness to reveal skin that looks polished and like you’ve had 10hours sleep!
