The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel Review

Hello my mademoiselles. A grand hello from MSD! Hope you all are rocking this season

Verdict:  as the label claims it’s a sumptuous soap free cleansing with strawberry seed oil.
I just started using this strawberry shower gel a few days ago and thought of penning down a review after just few days of usage. I just couldn’t stop myself reason being: First: it’s still available on discount if you buy it online. Second: it’s a perfect pick for use in spring season as it does not dry the skin …hffff ! What a relief. Phew!

Its fresh and pure strawberry fragrance will give you a great bathing experience + which does not hurt your nose, but makes you feel relaxed ;)

This shower gel has a decent lather and forms bubbles, hence it’s perfect for a romantic bubble bath. It lathers the best when used with a loofa or bathing lily. I gently rub it all over my skin with the help of a loofa and it leaves my skin very soft and very refreshed. It's invigorating in the shower, cleanses well, and leaves skin feeling light and moisturized. The smell is absolutely babelicious, although a little light. In order to smell this fragrance on my skin after a shower, I have to let it sit onto my skin for about a minute or two, so maybe they could improve on the lingering power, other than that this product is great!

Did You Know?

As the packaging claims, this product contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia. Through their trade, African Beekeepers can continue to practice traditional beekeeping, using hives handcrafted from locally sourced materials. This method promotes healthy bees and deters logging.


It is packaged in a typical TBS bottle which is rather durable and comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a click open and shut lid, which is good because you get to squeeze out the amount you want to use and is hygienic too! The shower gel is translucent bright red, moderately thick, and works up a fine lather, which saves you on its usage as the lather cleans well too.

How to use:

Squeeze the required quantity onto the palms of your hands and massage over your body. Take help of a soft loofa or a bathing brush with soft bristles. It will form rich lather. Play with the bubbles for a while in order to enjoy the fragrance of ripe strawberries. Rinse off in shower. 


·  It does not dry the skin unlike many other body shower gels
 It lathers really well.

·Its soap free. So bye bye dryness !

· Easily available at all the TBS outlets of course India & abroad.

· Travel Friendly packaging but don’t forget to seal the cap with cello tape before packing.


·   This one also has slight sliminess even after washing, and thus you need lots of water for a full clean up. But it is common among shower gels.

    The strawberry scent in this is very noticeable, and it does smell realistic to a certain extent, but there is also a really strong note of something artificial in there. So may like it some wont.


Rs. 340 for 250 ml, I got it for 300/- INR after discount. Yay!

Will I recommend it?

Yes! Yes! Yes! It is not a body shop product which will cost you too much and I quite liked the fragrance that lingers on post its usage. I thought that it was worth a buy! So it’s worth a share too with my girl gang here! Wont tag it as a must buy of the year but will certainly recommend to try once.
This soap-free shower gel contains real strawberry seed oil and it is a deliciously sweet bouquet of strawberries. So in all a Soap-free, Lather-rich - Sweet strawberry Fragrance delight. Yummie!!!


  1. So here I am... read and now ready to comment on a new post of yours. I am sure, slowly and steadily I'll cover them all :)

    Strawberry is something I am not very fond of... in all senses but TBS products, they truly are amazing. I use the green kin of this body wash- tea tree oil- and just love how my skin feels after the usage.

    Agree to one of the cons... requires a lot of water (and time) to wash off. The only reason I do not like body washes in general.
