Hey guys! Hope you all are doing great! I am going through a lot of changes in my life and have been really busy in coping up with all the changes and trying to accommodate my work accordingly. The changes are positive but they have kept me busy most of the times. 🙂
Anyway, today I am going to talk about a new brand that I tried recently. I received a PR sample of Body Herbals Passion Vanilla Shower Gel recently along with another product which I will talk about later. I have been using this product for quite a while and I have already used up half of it. Therefore, today, I am going to review this one for you all.
About The Looks!
The shower gel comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a transparent plastic flip-open cap. The packaging is pretty simple as you can see in the picture below. The product description, ingredient list, price and shelf life are all listed at the back of the bottle. Overall, the packaging is just average, nothing too good or too bad about it.
Price – INR 299/-
Net Content – 200ml
Ingredients – Please refer to the image below
Best Before – 18 months from the date of manufacturing
My thoughts about the Body Herbals Passion Vanilla Shower Gel!
The shower gel is pretty pale in color such that it pretty much looks like an oil but it actually is too far from being an oil. The consistency of the gel is exactly how the shower gel should be. The moment I pour some of the product of the loofah the bathroom gets filled with the strong vanilla scent. Now, this can both be a pro and a con. Pro, only if a person is fond of or okay with strong fragrances and con if a person doesn’t like strong scents or are allergic to strong fragrances. Personally, I don’t mind the fragrance much but I still find it a little too strong for my liking.
The product lathers up a lot and pretty quickly. Initially, I used four swirls of the product on the loofah, fearing that it might not lather much but the foam was a lot more than needed. Now I take only two swirls and they are more than enough. Another thing is that when I used 4 swirls, the foam or lather didn’t come off my body easily. I had to rub my body a little to get rid of the product stuck on my skin.
My body skin is normal to dry and in summers I usually don’t need any heavy lotion or body butter but a light moisturizer is enough. However, since the time I have been using it, my skin has been very dry, such, that a light moisturizer doesn’t work at all and I have to use some heavy or little heavy lotions to get rid of the dryness, which was never a case! In other words, the product makes my skin dry which I didn’t like.
In the end, to summarize, I would say that the product has a little too strong fragrance that might be bothersome to a lot of people and it is drying which I didn’t like at all. The price is 299/- for only 200 ml of product and the ingredient list also doesn’t give the product a Herbal image. Even the performance doesn’t support the price. Not happy with it and will certainly not recommend it to anyone. Though anyone with an oily or absolutely normal body skin can give it a try.
