When looking for a shower gel, here is my single most important requirement: it has to smell good.
While I put emphasis on scent above all else, my mom looks for ones with the best value. Others prefer ones that guarantee they kill 99.99 percent of germs or ones that won’t irritate their skin. Surely we put some consideration when we purchase our daily essential body cleanser, but have you ever thought about what happens to it when it goes down the drain? After all, there are chemicals inside that are bound to have a negative impact on the aquatic environment. But no worries — there are ways to reduce your chemical waste. The Body Shop introduces the first ever 100 percent biodegradable shower gel range from their Earth Lovers Collection. Now, as quoted by The Body Shop, you can “lather up with a clean conscience”!
The shower gels are made with a soap-free base, so they are non-drying and suitable for sensitive skin as well. Plus, there are no signs of sulfates, parabens or colorants in them. They also contain herb and fruit extracts along with The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade aloe vera, which leaves your skin naturally scented and super soft: a major plus for me! The shower gels come in six refreshing fragrances: Apricot & Basil, Cucumber & Mint, Watermelon & Eucalyptus, Fig & Rosemary, Pear & Lemongrass, and Lemon & Thyme.
I own the Cucumber & Mint and the Watermelon & Eucalyptus and they smell so good. Nice smelling fragrances keep me happy, so they’re a good mood-booster to get my day started! Get yours for $12 each in stores and online.
