New Fresh Shower Gels from Roger & Gallet

As a beauty junkie, I always have lots of products on the go.  My bathroom is full of half used shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments and that's the way I like it.  I genuinely don't remember the last time I had one shower gel on the go.  I mean, doesn't one need a morning time scent, an evening time scent and one for special occasions?  No?  Just me?  Well, at this very moment, I've three shower products on the go.  One is the Fleur de Figuier shower cream that I talked about here.  The other two are just as special and also from Roger & Gallet.

Say hi to the newly reformulated and repackaged family of shower gels!

Paraben and sulfate free, these creams and gels have glycerine to soften the skin along with aloe vera and shea butters to moisturise, leaving you with pampered skin that smells amazing.  Also, I love the new packaging so much!  It's sleek, chic and other words that rhyme with that.  I have them standing proudly on the side of my bath and they look very posh against my white tiles.

You know I am obsessed with the Ginger range right?  Ob.  Sessed.  I brought the old shower gel and body lotion with us to New York and now when I smell them, I feel like I'm back there.  Well, a couple of months ago, a little birdie called P-Dawg sent me a sneak peek of the new Ginger shower gel and that day was a good day my friends.  I put a little bit on the back of my hand driving home from the post office and was that weirdo you see smelling her hand in the car.  On her own.  Probably with her eyes closed at the traffic lights. The new Ginger shower gel smells warmer than the original, which was super soapy and clean and works even better with the accompanying Ginger spray.  I've been using them together a lot since getting the gel.

This week I was sent a new scent.  It was instant love.  Instant!  Now, in fairness, it took me ages to figure out what it was called.  Was it called Vivifiant?  Reviving?  No, it took reading the press release to see it's called Jean Marie-Farina.  Never heard of it but I think me and Jean Marie-Farina are going to be pals for a long time.  I mean, he's already seen me in my nudies.

This is a fresh, uplifting scent that has notes of citrus thanks to lemon and my favourites, bergamot and neroli.    It's a scent that's meant to make you feel like you're in an Italian garden and I used it for the first time after cutting the grass out the back, so I pretended I'd just come in from my beautiful Italian garden and believe this will help make that chore a bit easier to carry out.

The shower gels are €9 and if you want something that makes your skin soft and smell amazing while looking good on the side of your bath, then you need to check these out.  They're a great way of starting off with Roger & Gallet if you're new to the brand and I'm sorry but you're going to develop a love affair with it.  But you'll smell gorgeous so it's totally worth it!
