3 of The Best: Uplifting Shower Gels

As the nights draw in, and we wake up in darkness – that, or you’ve had a late night at the office, an early start or a heavy night of overindulgence. It may be time to consider a change of shower gel. Akin to a morning coffee, or a splash of cold water to the face – an invigorating, refreshing and all together zingy shower gel can really kick start your day. Here are our Three of The Best.

Elemis Sharp Shower Body Wash

ElemisSS-640

This is a truly great shower gel in terms of consistency, a little goes a very long way. But more than that – the ingredients, as you’d expect from Elemis are skin nourishing too. The winner is the fragrance, rich in Spearmint and Peppermint Oils it’s an instant morning pick-me-up, with it’s delicate mint fragrance. Smelling like the mint has been freshly picked from a country garden, the scent will linger but not over-power, so as not to interfere with your favourite bottle of Comme des Garçons cologne.

Molton Brown Fresh Bushukan Citrus Bodywash

MBFBush-640

If a shower gel could pack a punch, Fresh Bushukan from Molton Brown would be some boxer. Forget about citrusy ‘fresh’ shower gels, you might find in your local supermarket – this is the Rolls Royce of torso cleansers. Blended with Bushukan Fruit and a raft of fine essential oils such as Bergamot and Patchouli, the zesty, zingy and tangy citrus-aroma is guaranteed to invigorate and man (or woman, it’s unisex) at any time of the day.

Korres Citrus Shower Gel

KorresCitrus-640

Greek brand Korres, rumoured to be used by Mr David Beckham is somewhat unknown in the UK. The price point is exceptional, considering the quality of the contents – not to mention the branding, packaging and general aurora of the brand is first rate. My favourite it Korres Citrus Shower Gel – rich and creamy, with skin protecting ingredients, notably; wheat proteins and aloe – it’s citrus aroma is subtle but utterly delightful. There are other options from Korres in this field such as Basil Lemon, but I prefer the general catch-all form of ‘Citrus’ – invigorating.

    The Korres Citrus shower gel is very nice although it doesn’t do much for the particularly savage hangovers I get these days… but I also got the Korres Green Tea and Cedarwood eau de toilette and I was really impressed especially for the price (£20). Am always on the look out for smells that aren’t that common and ive had alot of compliments on this one! My favourite morning-after shower is the Boots Botanics body gel. I also love the black pepper Molton Brown but its so expensive I only use it on ‘special occasions’ ;-)
