Review of Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel

Hi all,
If you had read my previous posts, you would know my love for Spa Ceylon products. I have already reviewed their facial kit and body lotion. Today am going to review their shower gel. Its from the range Ginger Spice. I found it quite fascinating and bought it when there was a 50% discount 😊. Let’s see if Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel impressed me or not.

Starting with the packaging, am a bit disappointed. Spa Ceylon is a luxury ayurveda brand and for the price, I expected a more luxurious packaging. But this came very basic. A transparent green plastic bottle. Am not impressed!

Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel is transparent and runny in consistency. It has an amazing scent of ginger, cinnamon and other spices. If you love warm, spicy scents, you will definitely fall in love with this shower gel. The fragrance fills the entire bathroom and lasts even after you leave. But it doesn’t last long on skin. As mentioned, the scent invigorates the mind and body. It is especially good for cold winters when you look for warmer scents.

Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel lathers moderately. The lather is light and airy and doesn’t feel heavy inspite of presence of various oils. It cleanses gently and effectively. Since it contains vegetable glycerine, honey and other oils, it doesn’t dry out skin. With continuous use, I have noticed my skin is very smooth. Its been long since I used a body scrub. But still I feel my skin is smooth and soft. The price is high, but just two pumps are needed for one wash. So this bottle lasted me for around 3 months.

Ingredients talk

Coming to the ingredients list, it is free from parabens, paraffin, alcohol and silicones. It is not tested on animals and 100% vegetarian. The brand also promotes sustainable harvesting and supports community fair trade. However, it contains honey, so its not a vegan product. The foaming agent used is sodium coco sulphate which is similar to SLS, but a milder version. Both are made in the same way by treating fatty acids with sulphuric acid and then neutralising with an alkali. The difference between them is that SLS is made using purified and isolated lauric acid whereas SCS is made using whole coconut oil. The result is that SLS is a relatively simple molecule with smaller molecular mass and can easily penetrate outer layers of skin and cause irritation. While SCS has a more complex structure with greater molecular mass which prevents it from penetrating the epidermis.

IBeautySpy Rating: 4.7/5

Overall, I enjoyed using Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel. These days am alternating it with the Kama Ayurveda Sugar & Tamarind Deep Cleansing Soap and no doubt I love this Spa Ceylon Ginger Spice Shower Gel more. I would definitely recommend this for coming monsoon and winters when you would want to go for warm, spicy scents which would awaken your senses.
