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.

WHIPPED CLEAN Shower gel and Body Butter all in one – smells good enough to eat! 

whipped clean

This Whipped Clean Luxe Cream Wash and Shower Butter all in one does not disappoint. A shower butter that’s so thick and creamy it feels luxurious on your skin and smells oh so good!

With 25% moisture oils and butters it’s so moisturising leaving your skin hydrated and smooth with no residue but fresh clean soft skin. I do not feel the need to moisturise after cleansing with this product, it’s a great time saver for early mornings before work.

The vital ingredients include cocoa, shea butters, grapeseed, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, oh and the added scent of pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla which is why it smells good enough to eat!

It arrived in my Soap and Glory Hattie Stewart designed Christmas Gift Box, I’ve only just gotten round to using it. A little product on a bath sponge goes a long way, it’s great value at  £8 250ml I would repurchase it, take a look here soap and glory. I do love a bit of S&G pampering, how about you?
