"Heavenly smell"

If you ladies like to indulge yourself with the pleasures of having a bath or a shower with a luxurious product then this is definitely something for you. Furthermore if you guys like to spoil and impress your ladies with a quality product this might be a really good gift to consider.

I love toiletries, in fact my bathroom is filled with all sorts of bubble bath products, showergels, creams from all sorts of brands and with different price tags. Molton Brown as you may know or might have gathered is not a cheap product and I personally would not be able to afford the pleasures it brings every single day but on the other hand I keep this brand and especially this version to those special days I really want to treat myself.

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlilly is in my opinion the best bath/showergel in their range. It can be used by both men and women but because of it is delicate flowery hint makes it a bit more suitable for the ladies.

This product contains Indian tuberose, Tamanu nut oil, ginger, sandalwood and cardamom and I do not know of any other product on the market that can be compared to it but the smell is so gorgeous and capturing you could imagine yourself using this under a waterfall in some Tahitian island surrounded by beautiful flowers and shouting "Yes, yes…" may be that is possibly the wrong ad :-) but in my opinion not many people can actually say the smell is not nice, I had my cousing over from Italy trying to steal it from me!
This product comes in a 300 ml transparent plastic bottle and the colour is a bit of a pinky mauve. When you twist the silver lid off you can smell it straight away, it is powerful but not strong and it lasts on your skin too. This is suitable for all skin types and is particularly ideal for dry and dehydrated skin because of the tamanu nut oil it contains.

And now the cost… a bottle of this is priced at £16.00. Are you still breathing? Yes it is a bit of a robbery but when you use it you will soon notice the difference with ordinary showergels.

Well the best piece of advice I give you is to use this product in total peace, you definitely want to enjoy every drop of it so switch off your phone, put the kids to bed, have some footy on the telly so that your man cannot disturb you and enjoy either as a bubble bath or as a shower gel.
The consistency of this product is rather dense and it bubbles very easily. As mentioned before the smell is strong and persistent but still delicate and what I love about it is how natural it feels to your nose, it does not feel chemical or totally manufactured in anyway and at the same time it does not smell like a "super natural" product with the usual smell of lavender or full on essential oils.
A little goes a long way so you don't have to use tonnes of it

If you love this showergel Molton Brown has added some other products to complement it:
-Heavenly Gingerlilly Body Cream at £16.00
-Heavenly Gingerlilly Candle at £49.00
-Heavenly Gingerlilly Shimmer Fragrance at £30.00
-Heavenly Gingerlilly Shimmer Oil at £30
-Heavenly Gingerlilly Soft Body Shimmer at £30.00

Molton Brown products are not that easy to find, they are not sold at Boots or Superdrug stores but you can find a Molton Brown store in every main city. Harrods or Selfridges in London sell this as well but if you prefer avoiding the big stores you can definitely order online at their website Needless saying that if you want to save the pennies Ebay might offer a few bargains!

Molton Brown is definitely expensive so unless you really have lots of money to splash on expensive toiletries for daily use I would only recommend buying this as a treat for special occasions or as a luxurious present, otherwise for your everyday quick shower in the morning or at the gym any cheap showergel will do the same job although the smell might not be as nice.

Thanks for reading! x
