Palmolive Absolute Relax Shower Gel Review

Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax Shower Gel Review-

Hi guys! How are you all doing? Well, I am more of a shower gel person and I love to use different colors of shower gels :P Today, I am going to review a shower gel from Palmolive. It is called the Absolute Relax Shower gel! I got it during Holi and it removed a lot of color from my body. It has its share of Pros and cons...Let me share them with you today :)

My take on Palmolive Absolute Relax Shower Gel-

It comes in a transparent bottle with a loose cap. It opened once in my bag ( I don't know what made me carry it :P ). The gel is purple in color which is really attractive!  The fragrance is talc-like. I love the fragrance, actually- very different! The shower gel is runny in consistency and spreads on easily onto the skin.

It lathers nicely and cleanses the body extremely well. I used it during Holi and it removed almost 70% of the permanent color from my body! It leaves a slipper feeling behind and so I need to spend a few more minutes in the shower to get rid of that. It lathers nicely with a loofah, but without it, you won't get the lather you expected. I did not feel any calming effect, though. Also, the fragrance lingers on just for 5 minutes and then, it fades away! It contains SLS, which may cause a problem for  sensitive skinned beauties.

Summing up the pros and cons-


1) Cleanses the body nicely
2) Affordable
3) Availablilty
4) Lovely fragrance
5) I love the purple color of the shower gel :) 
6) Does not dry out the skin much


1) Leaves a slippery feeling behind
2) Does not lather much
3) Fragrance does not linger on
4) I did not find any ''relaxing'' effect.
5) Not travel friendly
6) Contains SLS
7) Does not lather nicely

Overall Verdict-
  I liked it but won't repurchase this one. It cleanses the body nicely without drying it out much. The fragrance is great and the color of the shower gel too! This is definitely worth a try :)

Rating- 3.5/5
