The Body Shop 'Earth Lovers' Cucumber & Mint Shower Gel

This shower gel was mentioned in my 'Payday Treats' Post and was given as a gift for joining the Rewards Scheme. There was a choice of Cucumber & Mint, Apricot and Pear.

The shower gel is 100% Biodegradable, and comes in a 100% recycled bottle. Perfect for any eco warriors amongst us! I'd like to think I care about the environment, especially since having my kids. I feel it's important for me to play my part.

Readers may also be interested to know the shower gel contains no sulphates, no parabens, no colourants and it is soap free. From what I read on blogs and twitter, this is really important to some people. This sounds like it's perfect for sensitive skins.

The Cucumber & Mint scent is really fresh and not overpowering at all. With the recent sunny weather we've been having, this was my shower gel of choice after a long day of running around, doing school runs, pinicing in the park, and my general mum duties. It's gorgeously cool and refreshing, leaving your skin delecately scented with the cucumber & mint.

The shower gel bubbles up a dream, and leaves the bathroom filled with it's gorgeous scent.

I do need to use my body butter after. But I love using my body butter so much it's not a chore!

I think I will save this gel for when I go to Majorca in august. After a sun filled day while being caked in suncream, this is perfect to use in a cool shower.

You can pick this up online, or from your nearest Body Shop store for £5.

Also, when I joined up to the reward scheme, I was given a cute little packet which had a couple of samples in it. It also had a £3 off voucher inside. Unfortunately, this voucher had expired on the 24th December last year! Now, the voucher wasn't the reason why I joined up, but it's the principle. And I feel led up the garden path a little!

Thanks for reading xx
