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!

Double Review: The Body Shop Strawberry and Vineyard Peach Body Butters

One of my beauty obsessions is having soft skin. I am lucky enough and my skin feels soft even without any particular treatments, but I always use a body moisturizer once a day.

My favorite ones are The Body Shop Body Butters. Oh Lord! They are so rich, dense and moisturizing. As for their scents, it is certain that you will find at least one to fall in love with.

Lately I am trying the Strawberry and the Vineyard Peach Body Butters. Let’s start with the reviews.

The Strawberry Body Butter has a sweet scent. First time I smelled it I found it delightful, then I thought it has something fake. After three months, I still can’t decide if I like it or not. Sometimes it smells like strawberry to me, but others I think it has a strong chemical scent.
It is designed for normal skin and offers up to 24 hours moisturization. It is a rich and dense cream that gets easily applied and absorbed.
It contains strawberry seed oil, Community Trade shea and cocoa butter, ingredients that offer the long lasting hydration.

 The Vineyard Peach Body Butter is a limited edition. Oh girl! Go get it NOW! It has a heavenly scent, just like fresh picked peaches, that lasts all day long. It has a rich, buttery texture, just like all the TBS Body Butters, but it gets easily absorbed. It claims to offer a 24hour hydration and it totally does! It leaves skin super smooth and soft. It does a great work on feet and hard areas, like elbows or knees. I like to apply it every night before going to bed. It gives me joy, makes me dream and relaxes me in seconds.

If I had to choose one of these two body butters, I would definitely go for the Vineyard Peach. One of the best body butters I have ever tried.

The packaging is simple but chic and stylish at the same time. The jar contains 200ml of product and costs €15.

Now I want to try the ones from their Christmas collection. Have you seen them?

Have you ever tried The Body Shop Body Butter? Do you like them? Which scent do you prefer?
