  • As a fan of Yves Rocher shower gels I was thrilled to receive a bottle of their organic Mandarin shower gel as a freebie with my most recent order, I've tried several products from this range and have been impressed with everything but still felt a little underwhelmed with my freebie as I've never been overly impressed with orange scented body products
  • This is a poor design in my opinion as the slimness of the bottle makes it incredibly slippery when my hands are wet and soapy as I'm showering, there's no 'dispenser' either so you have to pour the shower gel out of the bottle rather than squeezing it onto your sponge
  • The effect it has on my skin is excellent and as a little goes a long way the bottle lasts for ages, and at only around $5 for a bottle I think this represents brilliant value for money

      As a fan of Yves Rocher shower gels I was thrilled to receive a bottle of their organic Mandarin shower gel as a freebie with my most recent order, I’ve tried several products from this range and have been impressed with everything but still felt a little underwhelmed with my freebie as I’ve never been overly impressed with orange scented body products. 

      The shower gel is supplied in a tall bottle which has a screw top lid. This is a poor design in my opinion as the slimness of the bottle makes it incredibly slippery when my hands are wet and soapy as I’m showering, there’s no ‘dispenser’ either so you have to pour the shower gel out of the bottle rather than squeezing it onto


      your sponge. The gel is quite thin (although slightly thicker than others from the same range) and pouring it means you can sometimes be a little too heavy handed and accidentally dispense more than you wanted to, which is a waste as you really don’t need much shower gel to wash your body. 

      The smell is beautiful; due to my dislike of orange scents I really wasn’t expecting to love it so much, but it’s absolutely gorgeous. The scent is of natural oranges (or mandarin to be precise), it’s not synthetic in any way and the level of sweetness is just right to keep it smelling freshly fruity rather than sugary sweet. I adore the scent as I’m in the shower as when the gel touches ...


      • the hot spray the smell intensifies until the small amount I’ve used fills the bathroom in a gorgeously citrus cloud. 

        You don’t get a huge amount of lather when showering with this one; what’s there is beautifully creamy and cleansing, but personally I would prefer more bubbles as I’m showering - this isn’t as issue as this shower gel is incredibly cleansing, it’s simply a personal choice. The gel spreads beautifully across my body and feels deliciously cooling in this hot weather we’re having at the moment. 

        The shower gel rinses off easily and leaves no residue at all, unfortunately the majority of the fragrance disappears with the bubbles and that’s quite disappointing as I was hoping it would linger on my skin for longer. After I’ve

        dried myself off my skin feels lovely and soft, this isn’t sold as a moisturising shower gel so I was surprised at how soft and smooth my skin was after my shower.  The cleansing aspect is also brilliant, this shower gel leaves my skin feeling literally squeaky clean - presumably this is due to the citrus but whatever gives this result is a big winner in my opinion. 

        Overall I really rate this shower gel, something that has surprised me as I really do not like orange scents usually. The effect it has on my skin is excellent and as a little goes a long way the bottle lasts for ages, and at only around $5 for a bottle I think this represents brilliant value for money.
