The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel Reviews

Hello all..!! Out here in my part of the country, the weather has started to change its course and so has the behavior of my skin. It tends to get oily sooner now after using a face wash so, changing my body wash to a gel based or mattefying one was required. So, while surfing through an online shopping site, I picked up this lovely smelling shower gel from The body shop. It is a reasonably priced, body wash from the.

TBS used to be my pet brand for body butters. Earlier until I tried on their other products, quite recently, I happened to try their face wash, body polish and Tea tree toner. Well, the only thing that motivated me to pick this particular product was its star ingredient Strawberry. Only a couple of days back I Got to know that strawberries are a great source of natural antioxidants and help in rejuvenating dull, tired skin.

Without further chit chat, Let us move on to the review.

INR 275 for 60 ml, 425 for 250 ml


Packaging is pretty simple, no frills attached type. It is a sturdy plastic bottle with a white flip open cap to dispense the product. The bottle is leak proof and travel friendly but quite heavy. I guess, there is a smaller size available, too.

Texture and consistency

Consistency of this gel body wash is on a thicker side. Only the quantity equivalent to two to three tablespoons is more than enough. It does not lather much which is good as it is indicative of lesser SLS in this shower gel.

My experience with The body shop strawberry shower gel

I use three tablespoons of this shower gel on a loofah for a single bath. It does not lathers much but manages to clean my skin thoroughly. It smells like sweet strawberries, which I find refreshing and revitalizing. The smell should not bother sensitive noses as it is mild in nature. It rinses off easily and does not stretch out my skin.

It keeps my skin oil free for at least 3 hours post usage which is good as summers are approaching. I follow this with the TBS strawberry body butter. This product did not break me out or cause any allergies.

All and all, a decent product for regular use. The smell is a definite bonus!

Would I recommend this product again?

I am yet to come across a body shop product that has disappointed me. This shower gel does the job of cleaning quite well without stripping the skin of it’s natural moisture. The heady mix of sweet strawberry notes is something that is a signature of the body shop. Go ahead and grab it. Every TBS product deserves a try, as per me!!
