Bath & Body Works Skin Smoothing Shower Gelée

Well, it’s a good thing I didn't become a fan of this product, which I received this summer as a gift, because it turns out that Bath & Body Works has discontinued it. Despite that fact I'm still going to write a quick review up about it because I wouldn't be surprised if the company brought it back, maybe for Christmas?

Also, while this product is called a “shower gelée” it’s really just a body scrub and not a particularly impressive one at that. The packaging for this gel mentions how it has “soft  exfoliating beads” and “nourishing marine nutrients” that are “...gentle enough to use every day, leaving skin feeling super soft, noticeably smooth, refreshed and conditioned.”

Personally I didn't notice any of those effects. While this gel does contain “beads” that are soft and gentle enough for every day use, they aren't at all exfoliating and they did nothing to smooth or improve my skin.

I also wasn't a big fan of the texture of this product. It felt almost sticky and didn't wash off as easily as I would have liked.

One thing I do like about this product is its fragrance. It’s called “midnight pomegranate” and it smells amazing. It’s quite fruity but with a good dose of some kind of floral scent added in. The result is a strong, but not overpowering scent that tastes like something you’d love to eat for dessert.

While Bath & Body Works may no longer sell a shower gelée, they do stock a whole midnight pomegranate scent line and I think I might have to pick up the hand sanitizer that’s available in this fragrance.

Would I buy this product: While Bath & Body Works has answered this question for me, I wouldn’t buy it even if it was still available. There are just better scrubs out there.

Should you buy it: See above. While I'm sure that this product was reasonably priced (Bath & Body Works almost always has some kind of sale happening) it’s just not that good.
