My Experience With Original Source Zingy Lime Shower Gel:

I should better title this as OUR EXPERIENCE because my husband has used this shower gel more than me. 

Anyway, my body skin type is dry & my husband has oily skin. 

Last year I did a collaboration project with GoPuff UK on my main IG account ~ ana.everythingenchanting. During that campaign, I purchased a few items from their online site. This zingy lime shower gel was one of them. When I was in India for a few months this year, my husband started using this shower gel (he is fond of citrusy shower gels). Since I was busy with my father’s treatment, it didn’t occur to me to ask my husband about taking photos of this product before using it. A month later, when I returned to the UK, this body wash was almost about to finish! I used it, finished it, and then decided to take photos of it! πŸ˜›

Anyway, enough of my blabbering! Let’s move on to product details and performance.

The Packaging

Product Texture:

Original Source zingy lime shower gel is green in colour and has a smooth gel texture with a runny consistency. True to the name, the scent is truly zingy and refreshing! It smells so amazing and not overpowering at all. Those who like zesty lemony scent, this one is for you.

Product Performance:

To cleanse the skin, you are required to use only a tiny amount of this shower gel. This vegan shower gel produces a rich lather and smells heavenly! FYI, this body wash contains SLES, no SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulfate). If you dislike surfactant-based skincare products, then Original Source zingy lime shower gel is not for you! 

As I always say, my husband loves citrusy scented products, be it shower gel, shampoo, or perfume! He has oily skin and enjoyed using this shower gel way too much. When I asked him what’s his experience with this body wash so far? He said it’s amazing! By the way, I prefer fruity and floral-based products, and he enjoys using citrusy and spicy fragranced products.

Honestly, I second his opinion! This Original Source zingy lime shower gel is perfect for summer when our skin yearns for a refreshing (detox) bath. The uplifting zingy scent is a bonus! It cleanses the skin nicely by removing dirt and grime. My husband’s oily skin didn’t need any moisturiser afterwards. However, I had to apply body oil and lotion for my dry skin post-shower. I didn’t find it to be moisturising enough!

It gets easily washed off as well. We both hate when shower gels leave a slimy layer behind on our skin. Thankfully, this is not one of them. Post shower, our skin always felt clean, refreshed, scented, and good. Although Original Source zingy lime body wash contains sunscreens, don’t forget to slather your regular favourite sunscreen again before stepping out in the sun. 


What I Liked About Original Source zingy lime shower gel:

  • A simple good cleanser
  • Has a uplifting citrusy scent (contains 100% natural fragrance)
    Cleanses skin effectively

  • Great for summer time and oily skin
  • Skin feels refreshed and clean
  • Non irritating
  • Paraben free formula
  • Cruelty-free, vegan
  • Product lasts long 
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Affordable (Buy when it’s on offer! That way you’ll save more πŸ™‚ )

What I Disliked About Original Source zingy lime shower gel:

  • Contains surfactant (SLES) and a few icky ingredients!
  • The scent doesn’t linger on the skin! 
  • Not a moisturising shower gel. It didn’t make my skin overly dry, though! This shower gel is perfect for oily skin. Dry skin people will have to moisturise their skin afterwards.


3.8/5 (from me) and 4.5/5 (from my husband).

To sum up,

Original Source zingy lime shower gel made in the UK with 100% natural fragrance is an affordable, refreshing shower gel for your skin. Those who like using certain products that give them the *mental kick*, this zingy lemony scented body wash is ideal for them! People with oily skin must try out this shower gel.

We might not repurchase this product because the brand has other varieties too in their shower range. And I love trying out new stuff!
