When I initially received the request from NIVEA to review their new Touch of Frangipani shower gel, I did wonder how one shower gel could possibly differ from the others, but because it was NIVEA, a historical favorite of mine, (and the product was featured as one of the Editor’s favorites in the July issue of Allure Magazine) I decided to give it a shot. The first thing I noticed about the shower gel was the scent. I’m big on scents and have been known to buy products simply because they smell heavenly, and this shower gel was just like heaven; if heaven were a small deserted island surrounded by ocean breezes, sunsets, and exotic Hawaiian Frangipani flowers that is.
Next came the product trial. Being already so impressed with the scent, I went in with moderate expectations of the actual product because hey, who get’s it all right? I was wrong. The shower gel instantly foamed my loofah (requiring far less product then the gels I’d used in the past), and filled my bathroom with the intoxicating scent I had initially experienced, making it easy to slip into a 20 minute fantasy that I was showering after a long day at the beach versus a long day of work ahead of me. The feel of the shower gel on my skin was also amazing. It was very smooth and silky making shaving a breeze, and (I can only assume thanks to the sunflower oil pearls in the gel), left my skin feeling hydrated post shower even before I moisturized. After a few days of using the gel, I noticed that I actually needed less body moisturizer then I had in the past and after two weeks, even the driest patches of my skin were smooth and silky.
I would definitely recommend NIVEA Touch of Frangipani Hydrating Shower Gel to anyone looking to escape into a truly exhilarating shower experience, and to prove to our readers that this is one product they must experience; we are teaming up with NIVEA to give one lucky reader a chance to try the product for themselves!
