Korres Japanese Rose Shower Gel

Usually, I don't get too excited when it comes to things like shower gels. The only thing I ever really look for in them is their scent to be honest and apart from that, I'm not majorly fussy. However, now and then whilst I'm trying different shower gels, I discover one that shines out from the rest and can be considered a little bit more.. special
That was the case with a shower gel that I recently received as part of a birthday gift from my brother. It is the Korres Japanese Rose Shower Gel and today, I thought I'd share with you just why I like it so much. 


First of all, it's all natural. Well, 91.2% natural if I'm being precise but hey, that's still pretty close to me! This is always a factor that makes me instantly steer more towards a product - as I've said perhaps a hundred times by now, I have sensitive skin and products on the more natural side are always less likely to effect it! 

(Here's the full list of ingredients):

Aqua/ Water/ Eau, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Parfum (Fragrance), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Althaea Offcinalis Root Extract, Arginine, Benzyl Alcohol, Castoryl Maleate, Citronellol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Helichrysum Arenarium Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Lactic Acid, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol, Polyquaternium-7, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sodium Gluconate, Tocopherol

The second reason that I enjoy this shower gel is its scent. I'm a fan of rose smells though I definitely think they can sometimes be too much even for me. The scent of this product however is delicate and subtle, it smells fresh and just very pleasant on the skin. Getting in to actually using the gel, I can say that it is very thick in its consistency and so this means you really don't require much to cover your whole body. It lathers into a really rich foam and for me, that's always a good sign of a quality shower gel. The gel isn't drying either like some can be and instead leaves my skin actually feeling quite soft and conditioned after washing it off.

Overall, this is a shower gel that is really quite indulgent both in use and in price. Even at it's cheapest end on Amazon, it is still £6.99 for 250ml and though I think it'll last you for a decent while, it is still on the pricier side. Nonetheless, this is a really nice shower gel so if you want to pamper yourself a little or perhaps indulge you or someone you love in a little treat, I'd definitely recommend giving this a go.
