Splish Splash I was Taking A Bath… My Top 3 Shower Gels

I really enjoy shower time(who doesn’t?). It’s a pleasant moment during a hard day, the best way to relax, forget where you are and clean your body and your mind. There’s just one rule for me: scented shower gel(s)! I love the ones that leave my skin smelling phenomenal!

In case you are wondering,yes, I have more than one shower gels, because I want to choose depending my mood, the occasion, the weather… I even combine them to get the scent I want.

So here is my TOP 3 shower gels- at least for the moment:
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss, Palmolive Aromatherapy Warm Vanilla and I Love Cosmetics...Strawberries & Milkshake!

The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss– It is a gentle, soap-free shower gel with an intense vanilla scent that reminds me  of a cake with vanilla icing(yummy!). As soon as I open the bottle the whole bathroom smells of this amazing scent. It contains community trade honey and that’s why it leaves skin moisturized and velvety soft. The vanilla scent lingers on my skin for hours after use.

Got it two times since Christmas and I should have got more of these shower treausures… Yes, I overuse it. It’s one the top of the list! What did you expect?
This one is a limited edition created for Christmas 2012, but I suggest you to try the Madagascan Vanilla Flower or…
Palmolive Aromatherapy Warm Vanilla- Love the smell, warm and sweet, but more sensual than the previous one. The scent lingers on my body for quite long, but I don’t find it very moisturizing. It leaves my skin soft but not comfortable at all. Plus, the ingredients aren’t the best you could choose.
After these, you might wonder why is it still on my top 3. Well, costs no more than €3, contains a good amount of product and the scent is gorgeous. Are these reasons enough?
I Love… Strawberries&Milkshake Bubble Bath & Shower Gel– Oh my gosh! It smells heavenly, just like sweet strawberries. The scent doesn’t last long unless I pair it with the matching body lotion. It is quite liquid and runny so be careful not to empty the half bottle at once. I have to use a lot of product if I want to get foam, but that doesn’t really bother me. It leaves my skin clean and moisturized and that’s what counts! It has a very convenient price, €6.90 for 500ml, not bad at all!
I’ve got mine from All About Eve, but I am wondering if there are any stres in Greece selling I Love Cosmetics.

Have you tried any of these shower gels? Which is your favorite one? Do you prefer scented products for your bath time or not?

I’m off now! Time to get a hot and scented shower!

NATURANS Shower Scrub with Almond and Hazelnut Granules

I really enjoy my bath time! It’s so relaxing!  And I try so many products like shampoos, conditioners etc. But when I really love a product I do not change it! That’s what happened when I tried the Shower Scrub with Almond and Hazelnut granules by Naturans. This product is AMAZING

It is a shower gel that contains almond and hazelnut granules and when you use it gives you a delicate bοdy scrub. The granules are so delicate and tiny and that make the shower scrub ideal to use it everyday.

Its perfume is special: spicy but sweet. I like it but I know that perfums are a little bit personal.


I use this shower gel every day while I take my shower. I apply it doing a little bit of massage on my body. Ι have to say that I started to see results after five days that I was using it. My skin looks much more healthier and it is really soft. My elbows have also been softer(that’s a really hard part for me!). I also do a soft pedicure but I don’t see results there. Maybe it is too delicate for feet.

I usually apply a body butter after my shower so that I keep my skin hydrated. But once or twice I didn’t and what I liked is that that shower scrub did not dry my skin! My skin remained hydrated!

The bottle is really simple and contains 200mL of product. It costs €16 and you can buy it at naturans.it.
