I definitely think that Autumn has to be my favourite time of the year, as I just love all of the deeper and spicier scents that the Season brings with it. That’s why when I had heard that The Body Shop had released a Vanilla Pumpkin range, I of course had to pop down to my local The Body Shop store and check everything out. Well after giving everything a good sniff, I eventually picked up The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of it.
Here’s what The Body Shop say about their Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel.
Fall into Autumn with our new deliciously scented Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel. Lather up with this scarily indulgent shower time treat.
- Shower Gel.
- Rich lather.
- Soap free cleansing.
- With Vanilla extract from Madagascar.
- Scented with quintessential Pumpkin fragrance, Vanilla from Madagascar and hints of Tonka Bean, Hazelnut, and Maple Syrup.
I really liked it’s scent, as I thought that it had a rich and creamy yet slightly spicy Pumpkin Pie scent to it, that kind of reminded me of if they had blended a Coconut Ring biscuit together with some Pumpkin Puree and a bit of raw Ginger.
I wasn’t really a massive fan of it’s consistency, as when I first used it, I thought that it felt more like a gloopy loose Shower Jelly rather than a normal Shower Gel. But after I had used it a couple of times, it actually started to grow on me, as I thought that it became a lot looser, and felt more like a normal Shower Gel.
What it did when I used it.
I really liked what this did when I used it, as not only did it start to become a lot more like a traditional Shower Gel the more that I used it, but it also created a gorgeously thick lather all over my body that reminded me more of a thick and frothy Shower Cream
I absolutely loved it’s results, as not only did this leave my skin feeling incredibly moisturised, but it also left my skin feeling so soft and nourished that I didn’t have to use a Body Moisturiser afterwards. I also really liked that it’s rich and creamy yet slightly spicy Pumpkin Pie scent lasted on my skin for a good couple of hours after I had gotten out of the bath too.
I really liked it’s packaging, as like all of The Body Shop’s Shower Gels, this came in a thick plastic bottle with a thin neck and a thick plastic lid that clicked securely close whenever I closed it. I would have really liked it to have come in a bottle with a pump though, as I did find it’s lid a little hard to open whilst I was covered in water.
My overall thoughts.
Overall I would have to rate The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel, an eight out of ten. I absolutely loved it’s rich and creamy Pumpkin Pie scent, it’s consistency, what it did when I used it, it’s results, and it’s packaging, but as i’ve already said, I did think that it’s consistency felt a little bit weird, and I would have really liked it to have come in a bottle with a pump.
