My Experience With The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel:

(My body skin type: Super dry, His Skin Type: Oily)

The Body Shop has a wide variety in their shower gel category. Pink grapefruit was my first ever body wash product from this brand. Also recently, I have purchased two other variants – Mango & strawberry shower gels from The Body Shop store. Yay! By the way, since Mr husband and I, we both have totally different skin types so this review will be based on our experiences with this body wash.

The Body Shop Pink  Grapefruit Shower Gel Packaging

Let’s start with the packaging of this shower gel. Pink Grapefruit shower gel comes in a light pink coloured, plastic cylindrical, see-through bottle fitted with a black sturdy flip cap. The cap has a hole in the middle to dispense the product easily right on the palm of our hands or on the loofah. All the necessary product details are printed on the back of the bottle. The packaging looks so pretty.

Texture of The Body Shop Pink  Grapefruit Shower Gel

The texture of The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel is gel type. It has a semi-thick consistency and appears light pink coloured to almost transparent (Err, I’m so bad at guessing the colour). It has a refreshing fruity fragrance, not natural though!

We had been using this Pink Fruit Shower Gel since winter season and finished it just last month. Thus definitely we can say that this product lasts long. For the cleansing purpose, one requires using only a tiny amount of this body wash. The pink grapefruit shower gel does not produce a rich lather yet it is effective at removing the dirt and impurities from the skin giving a fresh, wake-me-up feel afterwards.

Although you get a squeaky clean skin after using this soap-free shower gel, it does strip away the skin’s moisture. Hence dry skin beauties (like me) need to run for either body oil or a moisturizer immediately post-shower. The invigorating citrusy fragrance of this pink grapefruit shower gel will surely refresh your mind and body. Sadly, the fragrance doesn’t linger long!

Even though hubby and I both loved its powerful fragrance and performance, we absolutely hated the fact that the scent goes away right after the shower. I want my shower gels to smell good all day long or at least 4-5 hours on my body!!

What We Liked About Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel:

💗 Has a refreshing, fruity fragrance

💗 Pretty sturdy packaging

💗 A little goes a long way. The product lasts long!

💗  Leaves skin clean & refreshed post usage

💗 Great for oily skin

What We Disliked About Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel:

👎It dries out the skin! I do have dry skin and whenever I skipped moisturizer; my skin would feel tight, stretchy and rough.

👎Not chemical-free and the scent is not long-lasting!

👎Pricey! Better you get it when it’s on sale!

NBAM Rating: 4.8/5

To conclude,

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel feels extremely refreshing and is ideal for oily skin folks as well as hot & humid season. If you have dry skin, make sure to apply body oil or lotion after a shower. I always use body oil, no matter what, so I had no serious issues with this shower gel. This wonderful body wash is-

Perfect for Normal - Oily Skin Types and Summer Season

Good for Dry Skin when followed by body oil or lotion

See you soon 💗
