The Body Shop Earth Lovers Shower Gel Review


Body Shop Earth Lovers Shower Gel

I have very sensitive skin that gets dry, itchy and stretched out in the winter. So I need a very mild body wash that cleanses without stripping my skin of any of its moisture. The search for such a cleanser led me to buy the Earth Lovers shower gel from the Body Shop.

I paid €6.50 for a 250 ml bottle.  I bought the Watermelon and Eucalpytus scent but there are several others available – Lemon and Thyme, Pear and Lemongrass, Cucumber and Mint, Fig and Rosemary. And for those who want it, there’s an unfragranced option available too. According to the Body Shop website, this shower gel is “sulphate, paraben and colourant free” as well as being soap free.

Here’s why I love The Body Shop Earth Lovers Shower Gel:-


1. I love the fragrance – It is a lovely blend of watermelon and eucalyptus, a kind of herb infused fresh scent.

2. It doesn’t make my skin feel tight or dry after a shower

3. It hasn’t irritated my skin in any way – no rashes, itching or redness

4. It is cost effective – very little is needed for my entire body (about the size of a large coin) so I’m sure this is going to last a long time

5. It is free of a lot of potentially harmful ingredients – it is free of soap, sulphates, parabens, colourants…what more can one want?

6. There is an unscented option available for those with sensitive noses/extra sensitive skin.


I couldn’t come up with even one negative point for this shower gel even if I tried. I will definitely repurchase this once it runs out, although I may try a different scent next time!
