CONFESSIONS: of a Bodywashaholic (Part 13) - Original Source...

Well there's one sure thing that excites me, and that's when a brand expands their range, and I was delighted to see these Original Source fruity selections at my local supermarket. I'd tried a few of their shower gels years ago - enjoyed the formulas, their availability and price, but wasn't all that keen on the fragrance choices. There are quite a few more, but these are the ones that grabbed me once I flipped the lid They are all vegan and contain 100% natural fragrances...
Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil
This particular Skin Quench formula contains natural oil beads suspended in the gel, and they work their magic boosting the moisturising power - my skin feels so soft and smooth after my shower, and I find I don't need any additional body lotion. Not overly sudsy, smells EXACTLY like ripe and juicy blackcurrants, and it's the prettiest berry colour. Loving this one, but being the fragrance fanatic that I am, I wish the scent was a whole lot stronger...

Pink Grapefruit
One of my all time favourite shower fragrances, so I couldn't go past this particular variety. Again, not quite enough scented oomph for my over-the-top tastes, but it's all natural and has a lovely zing to it. Despite not containing any moisturising oil beads, it doesn't make my skin feel parched or dry, just deliciously cleansed and fruitified...


Tropical Pineapple
Oh yum - this is my pick of the bunch, absolutely delish and ultra-refreshing. Whoever had the inspiration to create a shower gel that smells exactly like freshly cut pineapple deserves a round of applause - both revitalising and mouth-watering, this will be my numero uno for steamy hot days when I need to cool off, freshen up and boost my energy levels...








Watermelon & Jojoba Oil
Another from the Skin Quench range, this has the most subtle fragrance of the four. Most definitely genuine cooling melon (more like Rockmelon to me though), and delightful, but I can only just smell it. This would be terrific for folks who are scent-sensitive, but it just doesn't cut the mustard with me. A pity because it would be awesome for the Sydney Summer season when things get steamy...
In summary I'm loving these four varieties, but I'd love them even more if the fragrance intensity was doubled 

What's your favourite Original Source shower gel flavour?

Take care of you,

  1. I adore the pineapple one. To me it smells like jelly snakes. Yum! It's my second favorite after their raspberry vanilla one which smells like strawberry Freddos. Can you tell I have a sweet tooth? ;)

  5. Source are my all time favourite body washes! I'm surprised you don't find them highly scented. I love the Pineapple too, but the Vanilla Raspberry gets another vote from me also. I've got a Mandarin & Basil which is unusual. It's a limited edition. I've also had a purple one, mint & lavender I think it was. The Mint & Tea Tree is fresh after a hot day. My all time favourite is the Pineapple & Coconut Oil (piña colada anyone?) The only ones I've seen but not tried are the Zesty Lime & the Lime & Kiwi. Their packaging is the best! I save the empties for when I buy the gigantic bottles of Imperial Leather. I've recently become a body wash connoisseur too, I think it's your influence, lol.

    1. Yeah I don't know what it is about the strengths, but I find other brands (like Palmolive, Urban Rituelle, Imperial Leather) have heaps more potency. I'm on the lookout for the Pina Colada one - sounds delish! I'm thrilled you're getting into the body washes in a big way hon - it's so much fun for not much outlay hey ♥♥♥
