Original Source Mint and Tea Tree Gel

13 Apr

I also got the Original Mint and Tea Tree Gel sample from a swap with Raelessi and seeing the words, “tingling” and “mint” on the sachet made me try it at once. I’m not sure if Rae remembered that I like minty flavours but I was really glad that she sent me this.

It’s hot and humid throughout the year here in Bangkok and it is usually hotter around the months of March to May so this little goodie came at the right time!

Directions for Use: Original Source + Water = The Ultimate Wake Up Call

Review:

First Impressions: This shower gel had me at “7,927 Tingling Real Mint Leaves…” on its label, including the Original Source Guide printed at the back of the sachet which says “Natural Fragrances, Packed with Natural Stuff, Tested on Us… And Tingling Factor”.

Smell: Peppermint! I can smell it all day 🙂

Colour: Translucent green

Consistency: It’s not too thick but is watery.

Tingling Effect: It was immediately cool after I lathered it with water and applied on the skin. It’s super refreshing and the tingling effect is especially felt in the underarm, elbow and forearm areas (maybe because I washed these parts first and I have applied more shower gel in these areas). The cooling effect stays on the skin around 10 minutes (or more) after the rinse.

Other Effect/s: It’s not really that moisturising (it doesn’t claim to be such) but  it is not drying; it is definitely a big plus. It is not itchy on the skin, too.

Price: I got this from a swap.

Availability: Our local Boots don’t carry this product. I wish it does soon.

Will I recommend?: Yes! You should try this refreshing shower gel. It smells so peppermint-y delicious too.

With the weather here registering almost 34 degrees Celsius everyday, this product was really a good relief for the heat!  How I wish I can find this here. Paging, Boots… 😉

Do you love anything mint in your skin, body or face products? What’s your favourite?

Cheers 🙂
