Today I’m back with another product review from The Body Shop! This time I’ll be reviewing the British Rose Shower Gel. I’ve been using it for a little while now, so I definitely have a few thoughts on it! So, without further ado, here are some of my thoughts and some information on the British Rose Shower Gel from The Body Shop!

My Thoughts: I love this shower gel! I can honestly say this is now my new favourite shower gel from The Body Shop. It smells so good! I’m normally not a fan of floral scents, but I really like this one. This shower gel has a very strong rose scent, and tends to last on skin for a couple hours. The product itself is a relatively thin liquid that, like other shower gels from The Body Shop, doesn’t foam up too much unless used with a sponge or loofah. I always use a loofah, so that’s not a problem for me. After using this shower gel, I find it leaves my skin feeling clean and quite soft without leaving a film behind or feeling “squeaky” clean. Overall I love this shower gel! I really enjoy the fresh, floral scent. I would definitely repurchase it and I highly recommend it!
