From Tesori D’Oriente’s website:
This precious shower cream cleanses skin gently, leaving it soft and velvety smooth.
What I liked:
– cleanses skin well without irritating it
– leaves skin soft
– delicate and soothing oriental scent
– pretty bottle comes with a chain that makes it easy to hang it in the shower
What I didn’t like:
– if you’re into rich oriental scents, you may not like how delicate the fragrance of this shower cream is
I love oriental fragrances. They are rich and regal, heady and sophisticated, exotic and sensual. They envelop you into an intoxicating embrace that lasts and lasts. Not everyone shares my love for them, though. A lot of women find them too strong, and can even get a headache when wearing them. If that’s you, have you considered trying a shower cream with a soft oriental scent?
I’d recommend Tesori D’Orienta Marrakech Essenze e Spezie Neroli e Cardamomo Shower Cream. The shower cream has a lovely, not-too-strong, but not-so-subtle-you-can-hardly-smell-it fragrance that relaxes and soothes you. The fresh, aromatic, and slightly spicy scent of cardamom combined with the sweet and citrus-like aroma of Neroli creates a peaceful and soft scent that helps wash all your worries away. Although delicate, the fragrance is persistent. It lasts half a day on me, and then, slowly, it starts to fade away.
The shower cream, which is yellow in colour, has a creamy consistency that cleanses skin well, removing all traces of dirt, without irritating nor drying it. The surfactants it uses to keep you clean are Cocamidropopyl Betaine, which is derived from coconut oil, and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (not be confused with the harsh Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). Sodium Laureth Sulfate is much gentler, and its potential for irritation is very low. Unless your skin is super sensitive, there really is no reason to avoid this ingredient.
The packaging is not just pretty, but functional too. The opening dispenses just the right amount of product you need (which isn’t much), and the chain attached to the cap makes it easy to hang in the shower. Overall, this is a great shower cream for anyone who wants to wear a delicate oriental scent that won’t make their head spin.
