So after a long time I am back with a review! This time I will be reviewing the Original Source Chocolate and Mint Shower Gel. I got this a couple of weeks back in my haul that I posted about here. I was very intrigued about the mix of chocolate and mint in a shower gel. I really like using different kind of products, most of the time weird mixes, so obviously this one caught my eye!
About The Looks!
The shower gel comes in a transparent bottle with a black flip-open cap at the bottom. I really like the packaging of such products with a cap at the bottom as it makes even the last drop of the product come out really very easily. You don’t have to keep squeezing it like crazy and waste your time with it. The front part has the name of the brand and the shower gel type printed and the back has all the other information like directions of use, safety precautions, shelf life, ingredients, etc.
Price – INR 225
Net Content – 250 ml

My experience with the chocolate and mint shower gel!
The first impression of this shower gel was very good one. The moment I opened up the bottle and poured some product on the loofa, I could smell chocolate. It was not very strong, but quite noticeable. At the first look, the shower gel looked quite thin in the consistency and that got me a little worried that it might not lather up nicely and would require larger quantities to get it done. But, to my surprise, that wasn’t the case! Three – four light swirls of the shower gel on the loofa are enough to give you a great lather! Also, the thin consistency of this shower gel helps you consume less and still get good results. By thin consistency I don’t mean that the shower gel is runny, but certainly quite lighter and thin than the other ones in the market, at least from the ones I have used so far.
The aromatic effect of the chocolate is amazing! The mint gives a slight cooling feel, its not stingy cool, but refreshing. The chocolate scent remains on your skin for about an hour or less and then it goes away. Again, the scent is not strong. You can smell it, if you stick your nose to your skin. 😀 I usually follow up with my body sorbet, which covers the chocolate scent with the floral one.
I love the moisturizing part. The shower gel is light yet very good on your skin. I really like the way it hydrates my skin. I don’t see any white dry streaks on my body after the shower anymore. This probably is because the ingredients are absolutely natural and organic. If you look at the picture below and the ingredients, it would be quite clear to you. Even when I was rubbing the product in my hands, it felt like honey mixed with some more organic stuff. Honestly, it felt like it was some homemade shower gel.
Besides moisturizing my skin, it cleans it so very well!! It does a job of a shower gel by making my body squeaky clean and plays a part role as a moisturizer, providing great hydration! It can used by anyone with any skin type. The dry skin will love the optimum hydration it provides and the oily body skin will love its light consistency, appropriate hydration and the cleaning part. I am so in love with this one and I am going to get it a lot many times. I will also try the other ones from this brand, as this one has raised my hopes and expectations.
I am in love with this product!! This is the best shower gel I have used till date! It feels earthy, natural, indulgent and organic. Provides great hydration and makes my skin absolutely clean plus the chocolate scent is cherry on top for me. If you don’t like the chocolate scent, I would suggest to ignore it, because the product is itself really good. Suitable for all skin types, I highly recommend this product to everyone!!
