I have become a huge fan of The Body Shop over the past year and a half or so. In their last sale, I ended up ordering a couple of my favorite products and a good number of new ones. When I placed this order, they *finally* had this scent in stock. I had been searching for it since it released, but it was always sold out when I was ready to make an order. So when I saw it, I jumped on it.
In terms of formula, this is just like the other shower gels from The Body Shop. You don’t need too much of it to get a really nice lather. I find that it makes me feel clean, just like the others. So, in terms of formula, it’s great. I love The Body Shop shower gels (have I mentioned that yet? :P).
The scent is really why I wanted to review this shower gel for you. When I first smelled it in the container, I thought that there was no way I was going to like this. It smelled a little bit artificial in the container, and it was one of those smells that I could tell would give me a headache. To be honest, I almost gave it away without even trying it. I must say that I’m glad I did, though. It has a lot more of a real raspberry scent once it is out of the packaging. I’m guessing it was just the plastic that I was smelling, because it does smell so sweet and just like real raspberries. I love it! The one thing I will say about this, though, is that it isn’t as strong as others. I’ve used Satsuma, Strawberry, and the limited-edition apple one they had around Christmas (Glazed Apple). Those all fill the entire bathroom with their scent. This one just isn’t as strong. Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t a weak scent, but it just isn’t as strong as what I was used to from The Body Shop. This is also a scent that doesn’t really linger. With the Satsuma scent, I would smell like clementines even after getting out of the shower. That doesn’t really happen with this one.
Overall, I really like this shower gel. I am so glad that I finally got a chance to give it a shot, and I’m glad that it smells so delicious. It is a little weaker than other scents from The Body Shop, but it is still really nice. I would recommend giving it a try if you love raspberries.
I bought this myself. All opinions are my own. I’m not getting paid for this post.
