The Body Shop ATLAS MOUNTAIN ROSE Shower Gel : Review

The Body Shop ATLAS MOUNTAIN Shower Gel (Rs 695/ 250ml), available across The Body Shop Stores and counters and at , as well as at

Escape to the valley of roses. A refreshing body wash infused with Atlas Mountain Rose. This bright, dewy blend of floral accords was inspired by dawn in a field of blossoming roses. 
• Floral scent 

• Refreshing and cleansing 
• Soap-free 
• Layer with other Atlas Mountain Rose products to build the fragrance

I have never been too fond of floral fragrances, but The Body Shop Range of Bath and Body products are totally changing my perception and also my preferences. First it was the Honeymania Body Butter that I reviewed HERE, and now it is the ATLAS MOUNTAIN Shower Gel and Body Butter that I would be reviewing later. I got this as a part of a gift set when I attended the Body Shop Event ,about which I blogged HERE

The Body Shop ATLAS MOUNTAIN Shower Gel comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a white flip top cap. The packaging is simple and easy to use, no fuss at all. The Shower is transparent in color and of medium consistency, neither too thick nor too runny. It lathers well , both on a loofah as well as with The Body Shop Bath Gloves. 

The Shower Gel is infused with delicate Rose frangrance that lingers on for a while after a shower and is not at all overbearing . I have totally loved using this shower gel and I wouldn't be saying too much if I say I totally adore the light rose fragrance with a hint of musk, as is rightly mentioned on the bottle. Because it lathers extremely well, and washes off just as easily, this is perhaps one shower gel that I have totally loved using. My bathroom keeps smelling beautifully of roses for long after using this shower gel. 

Just on its own, the fragrance doesn't stay for more than 15-20 mins on me, but when layered on with the body Butter from the same range, it stays on for long hours. You may further increase the staying time by using the Body Mist from the same range.The shower gel cleanses effectively, but is not really moisturizing, so it definitely needs to be topped with a moisturizer. You get a lot of product for the price, and a bottle should easily last you for more than 2 months.

Overall, The Body Shop ATLAS MOUNTAIN Shower Gel is a great Bath product to try, however,  I would have liked if the scent stayed for a little longer and the pricing was better, since other shower gels from The Body Shop cost much less for the same quantity and perform almost the same.  Another point to be noted is that though The Body Shop claims it to be SOAP Free, it does have SLS as a key ingredient. If you're a fan of Floral frangrances in your bath products, you must surely try this amazingly scented shower gel.
