We FINALLY are experiencing Summer here in the UK! It’s warm, most of the days its bright…and fingers crossed dry too. And whether Summer is your favourite season or not ( I will let you into a little secret it isn’t mine! ), everyone gets into the habit of being drawn to Summer related things. Clothes, fragrances, food and even bath and body products for me at least aren’t always the same items used or worn during cooler seasons. One of my favourite products sitting in my bathroom at the moment is SBC’s Refreshing Watermelon Shower Gel & Shampoo. I bought this a few months ago in a set from QVC as it was discounted at a special price ( known as a Today’s Special Value ).
What do you get? This came in a whopping 1ltre size with a pump action dispenser making using it super easy. This is a formula that can be used in the bath, shower or even on hair as a shampoo.
Appearance & Consistency. Red in colour, semi opaque and is of the typical thickness you would expect from a shower gel or foaming/bubble bath product.
Scent. In a word beautiful! Watermelon is an odd scent to even think of let alone describe. But how this product smells to me is that’s its very fruity, sweet and berry based but not overpowering or too much for me. Since I’m someone who loves sweet scents and fruity ones this is perfect.
In the shower or bath. In the shower you really don’t need much. One pump on a sponge and mixed in with water this lathered up so well and easily washed my whole body. In the bath I used a few pumps, and the amount of foam produced was a lot and just how I like my bubble baths to be….foamy and fragrant!
On the skin. One thing I noticed with this product is my skin felt very clean after using this without drying it out. It left a faint scent to my skin which is always a nice way to finish off a bath or shower but it didn’t linger.
Family use. My son uses this in the shower as well. He’s at an awkward age where bathing isn’t top of his priority list and although he does it, wants it over and done with. But he likes using this because of how much it foams and the fragrance. Definitely a great one for the younger members of family because of how it smells which would appeal to most of them and I found it gentle on his skin.
As a shampoo? This is a bath, shower and shampoo product. But I have no comment on the shampoo side. I have afro Caribbean hair and I am very picky when it comes to what I wash my hair with as I can’t just use anything on it, so using this product as a shampoo I can’t review how it performs.
Recommended? Totally! This is indeed a Summer in a bottle product! The smell is great, it works well on the skin and the size makes this ideal for family use. What more could you ask for? You can purchase this individually direct from SBC’s website from £6.00 ( sizes varied ) here.
