I often become rather bored with products after a while and so tend to buy a few to give me some variety on a daily basis. I don't feel the need to with this product it has to be said.
Bright green in the bottle, bright smelling as you apply it, this shower gel works wonders when it comes to waking you up in the mornings, especially on those days you feel groggy. The gel does indeed tingle if you work it in enough and leave it for a little bit, giving you a cooling feeling that just invigorates you (it has to be said it's not the perfect thing for winter as it does cool you down).
My skin can dry out quite easily and especially in winter, but this product leaves my skin feeling (and smelling!) absolutely fresh and beautiful. The minty smell lasts for a while, a great thing if you mind smelling strongly of mint.
I'm not sure how it would be for sensitive skins as mine isn't particularly sensitive, but I'm sure other reviewers can enlighten you on their experiences too.
The other thing that works well for me is that any spots I do have disappear more quickly with this product (the tea tree oil at work I imagine).
I have used this a few times in the past and it's never a disappointment and great value for money too!
had high expectations for this but i did not feel any tingle using this. although it is tea tree shower gel, it did not help my back acne at all. an average shower gel. i won't repurchase. it might work for some people. nice shower gel to use during hot weather i guess.
ok omg let me tell you about this
I had pretty bag acne all over the top of my back and the back of my neck and this was the only stuff that i could stick to, to clear my skin.
I only applied this to the affected areas of my acne (not my face) every morning and honestly after three days all of it had cleared up halfway.
I loved the tingly feeling I had afterwards and I loved how it used vegan and natural ingredients, which made me feel good and safe with using it.
I washed my whole body afterwards with the original source raspberry and vanilla body wash (which smells like a strawberry cream chupachup btw) and i didn't smell like toothpaste at all.
overall this stuff is amazing for body acne and its good for the environment.
The good bits:
- smells refreshing and helps wake you up in the morning.
- natural ingredients so kinder to your skin (mine is quite sensitive).
The bad bits:
- I don't always feel like smelling of toothpaste when I finish showering (and my bf HATES the smell - weird since I thought as a guy he'd like it).
- people say it's tingly, but the only area that I feel the tingles is exactly where I don't want them, which is my private area! It feels uncomforable and I wouldn't repurchase for this reason alone.
- I have to use twice as much of this shower gel than I do with most other ones I've ever used to be able to wash properly. It's not that it doesn't lather, because it does, but it just washes off quickly. Not sure if this is because it's a farly natural products, since I noticed with other natural shower gels, shampoos and conditioners that I have to use more than I would with "chemically" ones.
This is my absolute favourite body wash! I am addicted to that tingly mint clean feeling and the smell is amazing. If you're looking for something different to the generic creamy body wash then definitely try this. As other people say- the mint kind of wakes you up in the morning and with the tea tree in there I think it just helps with that refreshing kick. I just feel so clean when I use it. When I use ordinary shower gels now I almost don't feel as clean as I do with this mint one - it must be the tingly feeling. But I love it! And the price isn't as bad - especially when you catch it on sale at asda for a pound.
love love love! +++
if you want a blast of pure fresh peppermint to wake you up in the morning - or evening - this is for you. it's clean, it's punchy, and totally addictive. the lemon and lime shower gels are super fresh and zingy too. love them all.
Nice smelling when other people use it in the gym and gives a small tingle in my armpits, but doesn't give my skin that minty smell I smell in the air when others use it.
For that reason I would try another mint shower gel product.
It's so minty and smells really good! Really wakes you up in the morning/feels refreshing. However it might be a bit too tingley for some. I have fairly sensitive skin so it didn't agree with me much. Therefore I wont be repurchasing. However, it might work well for different skin-types.
Great wake up call!
makes your skin tingle all over,just what you need first thing in the morning especially if you have a hang over! haha.
Doesn't dry out my skin and makes me feel squeaky clean.
I love the smell of this product, and I like many of the other Original Source products, but it's so cold! It makes my skin tingly and cold, which is horrible during the winter and even in the summer!! Don't buy unless you want goose pimples!
