I was really surprised by the smell of this. Lemony body products tend to remind me of house cleaning supplies, but this smells great! The scent smells like zesty lemon peel, and is really refreshing, it also has a tiny hint of sweetness to it which is really nice. The scent does not linger on your skin, which is a great plus for me.
The shower gels I've tested from The Body Shop does not dry out my skin, and they last a really long time because you don't really need a lot of product. It is nice and foamy, even though it's soap free.
I'm not really a fan of the packaging, but it works. I got my regular sized bottle on sale, for the price of the travel size, but the full price is still not really intimidating. You can check out the scents in store, and if you don't like this one you're bound to find another scent that works for you!
I got a small size(20-30ml) as a gift and have to say i hate the smell. It reminds me of a dishwashing liquid! Luckily it's only small and my boyfriend likes the smell so it's not a problem to use it. I could take this on a trip with me but would never ever pay anything from this. Apart from the smell, this gel is really nice. Foams nicely and doesn't dry out skin too much.
I loooove this shower gel. I am a lemon fanatic and I really like this formula because it is lemony but doesn't smell like a cleaning product; there's a tinge of sweetness to it that makes it really nice. It doesn't produce a huge amount of suds but foams up pretty nicely with a loofah. I bought the kind in the pump, which I really like, it is very easy to pump onto a sponge or loofah. I suppose it wouldn't be great for travel, but I have a small bottle of different shower gel I use for travel. I think it's a great product if you like lemony/citrusy scents -- it's especially great on a hot day or after the gym. I will definitely repurchase!
This is now my favorite shower gel! I LOVE lemon-scented bath-products and I picked this up on a whim when I went in to purchase some Banana s&c. It smells GREAT and is a wonderful shower gel. It lathers well and leaves my skin feeling soft. I like this even better than the Satsuma, which was my previous fave. continued >>
I would only buy this again if I can't find a better citrus scented product. I like citrus shower products and they took Satsuma away from me, and most lemony products smell like dishwashing liquid. Yuk! The sweetness in this saves it from smelling like a cleaning product. It cleans, but there's nothing natural or good for your skin about it. It just smells awakening and is a bit too pricey.
I enjoy citrus body products from time to time, but its always hard to find the right smell-I don't really want to smell like Pledge (a home cleaning product). The new Sweet Lemon line just came to my local Body Shop and I really loved how it smelled (except for the body butter which sadly had a floral note, which took away from the sweet, tart, lemonade like smell). I was also concerned about my skin not liking the strong lemon scent but I've had no problems. I actually prefer this to Bliss Lemon and Sage. It's got a sweeter note and less strong. This is also a fantastic shower gel for after working out-it makes me feel so fresh and clean.
