Soothing Shower Gels







Radox Smoothie Shower Gels in Island Indulgent (here), Soul Soother (here) & Original Source shower gel in Vanilla & Raspberry (here).

Hi lovelies, hope you're okay! I have another review for you guys today, I've kind of been on fire with my blog this week & I've posted every single day so I hope you've been enjoying that. Today I thought i'd talk about something pretty random, I don't often see shower gels really talked about on blogs, I guess because they're not that interesting but I personally love buying shower gels, they're such an essential. I think they should be talked about more really because we all have to use them and I can bet people try out lots of different brands when trying to find a good one. I've therefore decided to pick out 3 of the most gorgeous, soothing shower gels that smell amazing, work wonders and that you can pick up for quite a bargain price too so I hope you don't find this too weird haha!

As you can see I have picked up 3 of my favourite shower gels and I thought whilst they were looking nice and new and squeaky clean I would share them with you. These are all pretty cheap and they all smell amazing and really leave your skin feeling really soft and lovely. As you can see I really love fruity scents in my shower gels and I like anything that really leaves my skin feeling really clean but has a lovely scent and is also moisturising on my dry skin.

The first two of these shower gels are from Radox and they are from the smoothie range, I know a lot of you may not have tried these but if you haven't I couldn't urge you more to pick one up next time you see them. There's something about these shower gels in particular that is just amazing, they smell good and they work so well they're probably my favourite shower gels and my whole family love them too now so it shows they're pretty damn good.

The first one that I've never tried before but picked up recently is the shower gel in  Island Indulgence, I picked this up off the shelf because I love the other Radox smoothie gels and I think the bright orange colour just caught my eye so I wanted to give it ago. I flipped up the lid and almost instantly fell in love with this scent, it says on the bottle that it's a "vibrant passion fruit & papaya shower smoothie with juicy aronia berries and real fruit seeds" I would agree it's really fruity and just smells amazing. It's just a really refreshing scent and I think this one would be really good to use in the morning if you're trying to wake yourself up a bit.What's cool about this one in particular is the fact that it contains bits of papaya which means it can double up as a really soft scrub, it's not harsh at all but I swear to god I have never found a shower gel that leaves your skin as soft as this range does. Plus this one in particular really gets me in the mood for summer!

The second one from the Radox smoothie range is this pink one in Soul Soother, I loveeeee it! This one has scents of black current, chamomile and has real cranberry seeds in. This is my favourite shower gel in the whole entire world and I actually swear by it. I find this scent really relaxing and I love using it before bed because I actually find it helps me wind down and sleep better which seems crazy. This is a very sweet smelling scent and is just so thick and lovely and lathers really well too. I have a lot of loving for this line and they actually have the same consistency as smoothies so I really do like them a lot.

The next shower gel is from the lovely Original Source line, these get a lot of hype in the blogging world and I really like them too. The lime one in particular is really gorgeous and refreshing but i'm more a really sweet scent girl and this one in Vanilla and Raspberry probably just sums me up in a scent. I love smelling sweet and this shower gel leaves me smelling just like that this actually smells more like strawberries and creams to me but I don't mind that at all, it's again a really thick shower gel which lathers up and just leaves you feeling smooth and silky. I love the ethics behind this brand too, they are a vegan brand and it's packed with all natural ingredients meaning that the fragrance is all natural too. I also love the bottle of this shower gel, I know it's stupid to talk about the bottles of shower gel but I really like this one, I think it's designed really nice and I like that in all 3 of the shower gels I've chosen you can easily see how much product you have left so you know when to repurchase them.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you get a chance I would really recommend trying out these shower gels, these all retail between £2.00 & £3.00 but they are all half price in Boots right now so you can  pick them up on offer. Do you have a favourite shower gel? :) let me know & I hope you all have a really lovely weekend! xxx
