Hello dear people! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you all are doing great… 🙂
So, the product that I am going to review today is my mom’s…well, technically, I gifted her this shower gel on her birthday and I had no plans of ever reviewing it! But then we started living together because of the pandemic and I used up half of it by myself… XD
So, as I have been using it for months now, why not review it as well?! 😛
Read on to know all about it… 🙂

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Body Shop British Rose shower gel comes in a transparent, light-pink coloured plastic bottle with a black flip-cap. The label on the bottle contains all the necessary details about the product, like the complete list of ingredients and manufacturing details. The overall packaging of the shower gel is durable and leak-proof, which makes it quite travel-friendly. 🙂
The shower gel is colourless and transparent and has a medium to runny consistency. It has a mild fragrance… The gel smells like roses – real roses – as if you have walked into a garden full of them! Personally, I am not a huge fan of roses, but I do find the scent pleasant. Anyway, the fragrance disappears as soon as I step out of the shower. 😛
This shower gel lathers well and less than a teaspoon of the product is enough for each use. It cleanses the skin well and removes all dirt and oil, leaving my skin clean, smooth and refreshed… ❤️
Right now, I have a normal (body) skin type and this shower gel doesn’t dry out my skin… However, it also doesn’t add any significant amount of nourishment to the skin.
So, in my opinion, it is best suited for oily to normal-dry skin types. People with drier skin types can use it, but they would need to follow it up with a nourishing moisturizer…
(Also read my review of Bogar Organics Bath Powder here!)
SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Easily available online on Amazon, Flipkart and Nykaa.
2. Durable, leak-proof, travel-friendly packaging.
3. Free of parabens.
4. Has a mild fragrance; smells like real roses.
5. Lathers well and cleanses the skin nicely.
6. Leaves the skin clean, smooth and refreshed.
7. Doesn’t dry out the skin; best suited for oily to normal-dry skin types.
1. A bit expensive.
2. Claims to be soap-free but contains SLES and other chemicals.
3. The fragrance doesn’t last for more than 2-3 minutes.
4. Not a good choice for dry to severely dry skin types.
FINAL TAKE: The Body Shop British Rose shower gel is a sweet-smelling, effective cleanser that cleanses the skin well without drying it out… I don’t find it unique or special in any way, but I do think that people who love the fragrance of roses, would like this shower gel…
So, if you are one of them, you can give it a try! 🙂
Hope it helps! ❤️
A very detailed review of the body shop rosewater gel by Mrinal, i will buy it today
Thanks for the review
I have heard only good reviews about this product. I am yet to try. Your review is awesome as usual.
Body shop has a lot of premium products. I love this brand and the shower gel seems promising.
I love anything that has rose in it. I have always used rose products in my shower and skin regime. I would love to try this rose shower gel and see how my skin feels. Thanks for this, I will try to buy the product.
Yes I love the rose fragrance
Well who wouldn’t?
Also I haven’t tried yet any body shop products, so I would buy this next time. The price is reasonable.
The Body Shop products are actually my favorites. But if it cleanses well and removes the dirt, I wouldn’t mind if the fragrance doesn’t last for more than 2-3 minutes.
I am crazy for Rose fragrance. I have tried this one and fragrance is so soothing. I agree with your review, it’s best to use during summer months for dry skin types.
I love that this product is infused with the essence of handpicked roses from Britain. Wow! My wife would go crazy ?
I love some of the range of body shop but yes with price comes quality and their products are really good. I’ve used many of them.
I just love showe gel. I don’t remember whe I used regular soap in last few years.
I like to try new brands and fragrances too. Will surely try this one out.
I’m currently using this shower gel and just love the fragrance and the soft skin it leaves after a shower. Have another fragrance form the same range but I love this one.
Wow this British shower gel looking so promising and I love the fact that it didn’t dry up the skin. Will check out this for sure. Thanks for sharing detail review.
Oh once I spent around 7000 bucks on body shop stuff despite the discounts. I went crazy in the shop when I visited it the first time I came to India.
This sounds so indulgent and rich ..luxury at such a great prices and great detailed reviewing ?
This looks like a perfect sophisticated product for me! I’ll gift to myself 340 is quite reasonable for so many benefits
For me, I love to MnS shower gel which is quite reasonable approx 700 INR. The cocoa cia butter fragrance is really good. I would love to try this one.
Body shop products work such wonders, I tell you! I’ve never had a bad experience with them. My favourites are their tea tree face cleanser and aloe vera gel. Absolutely transformed my skincare regimen. Thanks for sharing this review, will try this out as well!
I love a few of body shop products,my favorite is their body butters. But yes I do agree that their products are on a bit pricey side.
This product reminded me of Yardley from London! Very luxurious indeed! Will surely check it out!
I love body shop products they are authentic and have lovely fragrance.
Looking forward to get this one too.
Shower gel generally doesn’t retain fragrance. But they are slightly expensive thanks to the brand name
It looks like a really nice product for a healthy shower.
If the product is good, a bit expensive is ok.
Till now most of the shower gels I have used are only limited to the texture and fragrance but I am glad to know that the Body Shop shower gel cleanses well too. I usually prefer the fragrance to not stay for long and thus, this looks like a perfect product for me. Well detailed review.
Summed up well..i do agree with you that its a little expensive but then again if it works according to what the brand claims then it might be worth it
The Body Shop British Rose Shower Gel looks quite promising, though I wished the fragrance would have lasted more than just 2-3 minutes. Great to know the pros and cons
Wow! There is so many positive reviews about this product. I will definitely going to try this for sure. And I love fragrance of roses.
I have used the edt in this range.And its a heavenly fragrance is really memorable. Would love to try this shower gel too.
I have also used this body shower gel from Body shop and liked it but I faced the same issue since I have dry skin. After using this I had to use moisturizer.
My favourite shower gel of all time. It smells clean, fresh and reminds me of a morning walk in rose garden . It looks like it lathers beautifully. Great thoughts.
And I love your reviews because your book experiences are genuine and guide the readers as to if they should or shouldn’t buy the product. Will check out this product. I loved your take
I have a combination skin and personally this is my fav product. I m using this product since so long. It gives me refreshing feeling after every bathe. 🙂
The freshness of roses is always welcome. The British Rose Shower gel looks good. But it would have been great if it did not have chemicals.
I’m glad that this nicely scented cleanser cleanses the skin well, removes dirt and also doesn’t makes it dry.
