Lavera Body Spa Coconut Dream Shower & Bath Gel

June 3, 2008

A warm and sweet vanilla coconut scented shower gel.

I don’t usually buy ‘warm and fuzzy’ smelling shower gel because they can be a bit sickly, but I really liked Lavera Coconut Dream shower gel. The smell was very sweet, almost like sweets and therefore a little fake. The lavera website states that this product contains fragrance (parfum) and sugar so it could be these ingredients that add to the sweetness. If you don’t like the smell of shower gels that smell more herbal and you like them sweeter, this would be a good product to buy. It is available in other fragrances including: wild berry, citrus fruit, peach and apricot, orange and sea buckthorn, lavender and aloe vera and wild rose.

This shower gel didn’t really create that much lather which made it very easy to rinse away and non oily. I’ve used a couple of tubes of this product and found I have used them up much quicker than some other shower gels which I think this could be because it is less concentrated.

One thing I can’t fault this product on is how soft it left my skin. For something that isn’t very rich, it is very moisturising.

Summary

  • Pros: Very moisturising
  • Cons: The smell was very sweet
