Papaya is now my favorite Body Shop shower gel. I got this as part of a gift pack and just finished using the entire bottle. It smells fresh and fruity, but the fruity is not overdone. The scent is wonderful and lasts a little while but doesn't compete with my fragrance spray which is not fruity at all. This gel lathers wonderfully and does not leave any residue.

I just finished a mini bottle of this. TBS is great for selling small sizes so you can sample the product without a huge commitment. I think I will repurchase the larger size. I really, really liked it. The scent was gorgeous, lighty and tropical fruity. It smelled of papaya, guava, passion fruit. It wasn't as strongly scented as the satsuma, which I can tire of quickly. It had a very nice lather, too, but it rinsed clean. Some shower gels are thick and sticky and don't rinse off well. I don't like that. This one is a pretty peachy color, too. Looks nice in the shower. Very nice shower gel. Makes you feel like you're taking a shower in Tahiti.

Comments that this shower gel (and the rest of TBS' shower gels) is drying is very true! What I like to do is to mix a little Jojoba oil into the shower gel so it doesn't dry out my skin so much.

Papaya's not too bad, but at the same time it's not that great. I was hoping for a stronger Papaya scent, but this was too critrus-y. continued >>

Not the best shower gel becuase it doesnt moisturize thta well but i would never use this alone anways. I put the papaya body scrub on a loofa and use this to lather up better. The smell is a little off from the rest of the line but will still buy for the purpose above.

This is my absolute favourite shower gel. The scent is lightly floral - not supposed to be the scent of the fruit, but rather, the flower, and it's absolutely divine. A small bottle lasts a long time, and it's very moisturizing. Picks me up when I'm feeling down, so much so that I got a little addicted to bathing with this gel!

Love,love, love this shower gel. It does not irritate my sensitive skin or leave a wierd film on it, like some other gels. It leaves me clean and soft, and smelling lightly of fresh, tropical papaya. After showering, the bath smells so good for a couple hours. This gel smells good enough to eat. It is my staple shower gel and absolute favorite....

Nice shower gel, but it didn't really bowl me over. It smells nice, but it's not particularly moisturizing.

The Body Shop's 'papaya' shower gel is the second best in the series after 'satsuma.'
