“It’s not a shower gel. It’s an experience.”
That’s what you have to remind yourself when you shop at Molton Brown.
Because, sure, that cheap shower gel in Boots may do the same thing as their Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel, but where’s the glamour in that?
Exactly. There’s just something about this luxury shower gel that just makes spending an hour or two relaxing in a bubbling bathtub after a long day on your feet that little beat more enjoyable.
(Yes, it may be the placebo effect, but let’s not go there. It ruins the mood).
It may be the scent. It’s delightful. It’s like a bouquet of tart rhubarb and sweet rose nestled on a bed of warm musk. It’s fruity. Fizzy. Feminine.
It cleanses skin well too. Not the scent, obvs. The shower gel. The usual suspects (sodium laureth sulfate and cocamidopropyl betaine) remove all traces of dirt from my skin without drying it out.
When I get out of the bathtub (or the shower), my skin’s all clean and soft and smells gorgeous.
Too bad the scent doesn’t last that long. At this price point, I feel like I should smell of rhubarb all day. But maybe it’s a good thing I don’t?
