When I last used a shower gel from the brand Original Source (reviewed here), I was highly impressed with that and so I ordered another variant from the same brand from amazon before going to Dubai in January. The one I ordered was Original Source Raspberry and Cocoa Shower Gel which I mentioned in my Dubai Haul post as well. I have been using this shower gel for a month now and I am ready to share my experience with it!
About The Looks!
As you can see in the picture below that the product comes in a tapered squeezy bottle with a flip open black cap. The raspberry red color in the picture is of the product itself and looks really pretty!! I really love the way the name of the brand and the product is printed on the bottle, the font and the placing, everything is so cute and attractive! This one is a part of seasonal edition and says New Sweet, Sensational and #Seductive on the packaging. I love the color combo, the look and the overall packaging!!

My views and experience with the Raspberry and Cocoa Shower gel!
When you first pour the shower gel out in your palm or on the loofah, you will realize that it looks like a raspberry syrup or raspberry sauce in a dessert!! Looks so yummy and smells delicious as well! I could have eaten it, if it was edible!! Really!! 😀 So, the first thing is I love the scent of the shower gel. Its sweet and exotic! Gives a very nice fragrant shower experience.
It lathers okay. Not too good not too bad either. Well, actually it depends on the loofah. It will lather better on an old and loose loofah and quite less on a brand new one as compared to the old one. I wish it lathered well both ways. Coming to the moisturization properties, its good but could have been better. My skin is extremely dry and in winters its really difficult to keep it well hydrated, so this shower gel is good in a way that it does not dries up my skin, its not harsh, it does moisturizes the skin BUT I would need to apply some good body butter or lotion or oil to prevent the skin from drying up because its not long lasting. It can be good in summers but I would still need a light lotion to keep the moisture in my skin. For people who have normal to oily body skin, it will work really great for you all!
I love the scent and the packaging of the product but I wish it performed better in terms of lathering and moisturization areas. I like the shower gel a lot and might use it again, but only after I have used every other variant from the brand. I do recommend this product for people who do not have a very dry body skin. You will enjoy your bath using this shower gel!
