Neal's Yard and Remedies Bee Lovely Bath & Shower Gel
I was so excited to try this shower gel from NYR's new Bee Lovely range. I've written about the range before here in a blog post. The description said it would contain honey (of course) and smell of Orange essential oil. Orange Oil happens to be my favourite scent so I was really excited!
Description (from NYR website here, <- also view ingredients here)
• Enriched with moisturising organic honey
• Natural uplifting scent of orange and mandarin
• Helps raise money for our bee lovely charities and projects
What do I like about this?
I love the scent, and it is not like an artificial Orange smell (like Bodyshop Satsuma). There is no fragrance in this shower gel (great for sensitive skin or the whole family) so the scent obviously comes from the essential oils. Something I usually don't care about when I review stuff is the packaging. However I really really like the packaging. There is something about the hard dark plastic bottle that makes it look pretty luxorious (which it is at £14.00). The fact that there is a pump is really handy when you are showering. I never paid notice to the fact that hardly any shower gels have a pump and how inconvenient that is. The cleansing agent in this is Cocamidopropyl Betaine which is really gentle. Except for being Sulfate free this shower gel is also paraben, and silicone free.
What do I not like?
I don't really dislike anything but the only thing might be the price. It is very pricey- but then again it supports a specific course (However this was a PR Sample so I did not pay for this). Something I know some people mind is the fact that it doesn't lather massively. Meaning it really does lather! But not as much as your used to with Sulfates. I just think that's a good think, it feels more natural and gentle on your skin (which it is) when it doesn't lather too much.
Do you like NYR guys and have you tried anything from the BeeLovely range?
