This week in The LLG Daily Beauty, I am concentrating on the products that you will find in my bathroom day in, day out, that have been tried and tested, and for which I happily fork out my own money. As you can see from this photo, I am half way through yet another bottle of Molton Brown’s Vitalising Vitamin A,B+C Bath and Shower Gel. I got sent my first bottle when it launched when I was on The Wall Street Journal back in 2008, and it’s remained my favourite shower gel ever since.
I’m not a fan of scented shower gels, especially those cheap ones, which always smell of loo cleaner, whatever fragrance they are supposed to be. But there’s something about this faintly orange-y scent that manages to be a delicious smelling floral, with orange oil at its heart, along with petitgrain and neroli. It’s categorically not a harsh, bash-you-in-the-nose citrus; it’s more of a light & fresh scent which doesn’t fight with whatever perfume you choose to wear after.
It’s not cheap but it does smell reassuringly expensive. No whiff of citrus fresh loo cleaner here. I also find that this 300ml/10 flloz bottle lasts for ages. More so if you buy a pump for it (I got mine at the pound shop), or use one of those nylon scrunchy things to lather up. I bought this bottle before Christmas altho, granted, I’ve been testing out other gels simultaneously.
I’m also thrilled to discover that there is a new complementary Eau Fraiche and a Body Hydrating Gel in the range, which I am looking forward to getting my hands on.
