If you love the smell of real lavender, I highly recommend this shower gel. I get it for $3.99 at Trader Joe's which is cheaper than elsewhere. It has a wonderful true lavender scent and contains lots of botanical ingredients and NO sulfates, yet it lathers well. Makes a great bubble bath too and leaves skin soft. Update: this is now $5.99 at Trader Joes. Still very worth it. Very high quality, natural ingredients. Also available at drugstore.com.

You know, I live in the NE US where winters are usually excruciating with itchies as most people call it around here.


Last year, however, I had no problems at all and rarely used lotions through the day. This year was not the same at all.


It was not until I discovered the reactions I was having to the harsh SODIUM LAURYL/LAURETH SULFATES in shampoo, shower gels, facial washes, and toothpastes, that I decided to go out and buy products without them.


AVALON LAVENDER BATH AND SHOWER GEL was what I had been using all last year and ran out of it this summer when the problems started for me. When we bought another bottle of it a month ago, the difference was amazing. All itching completely stopped and I no longer reached for the hand cream every few hours!


My 5 year old has stopped howling about having the "itchies" every few hours and demanding to take a bath again.


This gel smells beautiful, is concentrated, and suds up nicely, leaving my skin not at all dried out but very clean.


We had to pay almost $9 for this bottle, but it is worth every cent. continued >>

Highly Recommended! This is a staple in my shower. I buy this in multiples at Trader Joe's or Vitamin Shoppe. The scent is a wonderful herbally lavender. A generous squirt makes loads of bubbles in the tub. It doesn't irritate any of my sensitive skin. It also blends well with other scents.

I just LOVE this shower gel! It foams nicely, smells incredible, and cleanses well without leaving my skin taut. I've noticed that my skin needs less body moisturizer since switching to this SLS and SLES free cleanser. I'm not a big fan of lavender, but this gel has a nice refreshing scent. Will definitely repurchase.

Great smell and a non-drying, non-irritating product. Leaves my skin feeling clean, but not stripped.

Love the scent...I also bought the hand lotion and body lotion. One of the nicest lavenders out there.

Mm, not too sweet a lavender, which is what I was going for when I picked this up at Trader Joe's for five dollars. I've seen it at Big Lots too, so now I'm on the lookout on their messy shelves. Plus, this is parabens free, and rinses clean. Not drying, not oily, just right.

This has a great strong scent when you're using it in the shower, but it disappears once you get out. I've just switched to organic skin and hair care, so I'm not used to the no-lingering fragrance aspect. This lathers ALOT (was really surprised given it has no SLS) but somehow doesn't dry out skin or leave it feeling tight in spite of the lather.

Edit: I have reduced my rating for this due to quality and ingredients issues. I think the quality has declined. It now makes my skin drier. Despite claims on the packaging that it now has more essential oils, I notice that the ingredients have changed for the worse. I also dislike the fact that they have pandered to the need for a shower gel to be clear. Hardly anything truly organic is ever translucent, except for water. I liked the yellowy-green colour of it, it was reassuringly more natural. I will now only buy shower products approved by the Soil Association. It is a shame because the price used to represent good quality for an organic shower product in the UK. It is usually 1.97 per 100ml. No good paying a good price if the quality isn't the same - value is what I'm seeking not just a competitive price. Boo.

This is a review for the LEMON bath and shower gel. It isn't listed here yet but it does exist.

I love this stuff! For anyone who has been to the Amalfi Coast and drunk the famous Limoncello liqueur, this scent will take you right back to sunny Italian days in a flash. Every time I wash I think of Italy, beautiful. For those who aren't familiar with that aroma, it a very natural, sharp lemon scent that delivers a kick - great for morning showers. It definitely is NOT a sugary, sherbety, lemon, thank goodness. As others have said about the other aromas, they don't linger very long, which is actually fine by me.
The color is reassuringly very natural for an organic product. It's a greeny, lemony looking gel as it contains lemon rind too. Some might be put off by this but I really like the fact that nature is there in all its glory. It isn't at all drying but it won't moisturise that much. You still need a moisturiser afterwards as with the majority of shower gels.
