4 shower gels ~ quick body product reviews & a quick “what’s in your shower” poll

Roger & Gallet Rose, Weleda Sea Buckthorn cream shower gels

I love scented shower gels, and since I do use up every bottle I buy, I have way less guilt about buying plenty of them than I do about buying more perfume — I don’t even need Donatella’s absolution. Here are quick reviews of 4 current favorites (Roger & Gallet Rose, Weleda Sea Buckthorn, Lush Happy Hippy, EO Grapefruit & Mint) along with a quick poll.

Roger & Gallet Rose Gentle Shower Cream

I love cream-formula shower gels in winter: they may or may not be less drying, but they certainly feel less drying on my parched winter skin. A kind person gave me a tube of Roger & Gallet’s Green Tea Gentle Shower Cream, and I liked the gentle but decently-sudsing formula. The fragrance, however, was too aggressively clean for my taste.

Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2015, part 6

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes collector bottles from Jo Malone, Lolita Lempicka, Prada and Christian Dior; plus a new Eau de Parfum concentration of Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier.

Jo Malone Blue Skies & Blossom collection

Roger & Gallet Oeillet Mignardise Soap

If I had a vintage vanity table with a large mirror, I would decorate it with perfume bottles, makeup brushes and neat rows of lipstick and nail polish. I would fill the candy dishes with face powder pearls and top them with colorful Caron powder puffs. And I would be sure to keep at least […]
