The Pink Cow Bath/Shower Gels


Bit of a random post, but I felt the need to blog about these rather delicious-smelling bath/shower gels as I'm a bit of a clean-freak and have a mild obsession with buying shower gels. I was getting a bit bored of buying the same old shower gels (Imperial Leather etc.), and as much as I'd like to, I unfortunately can't really afford to splash out at Lush for mere necessities. So when I stumbled across these delightful looking bottles whilst perusing the Boots website, and saw that they were on offer for a mere £2 each (usually £2.99), they immediately got my attention. Now, if you're anything like me you will want to pay the smallest price possible when it comes to necessities, therefore I only usually pay about £1 for your standard run-of-the-mill 250ml shower gel. These beasts (I call them beasts, as they're rather large), however, contain 500ml, and the delightful names on the front caught my attention. Then, when I saw the golden words 'We do not test on animals' and 'Suitable for Vegetarians' I may have let out a little squeal. Cue me adding several bottles to my basket and eagerly awaiting the (hopefully) delightful-smelling, cruelty-free treats. 

And delightful-smelling they are indeed. The Strawberry Sundae one is definitely my favourite - it smells of well, strawberries, and sickly sweet things (if you like the smell of Lush's Snow Fairy, I don't doubt you will like this, although it is not QUITE as amazing smelling) and is pink, therefore the best. I also bought the Lemon Cheesecake one (not pictured) which smelt really lemony fresh, ideal for when you've just woken up. The Vanilla Biscuit one smells DELICIOUS, I almost want to eat it (not advisable) but it can be a bit overpowering, and definitely not the best if you're not big on vanilla. I'm yet to try the Gingerbread one, as I think I might save it for around Christmas, but I don't doubt it will be as delicious-smelling as the rest.

The bath/shower gels are by the brand 'The Pink Cow', although a couple of the bottles I got had 'The Little Bubble Co' written on them, so I'm not sure if they've recently changed names/plan to but there you go. They smell good.

What do you prefer when it comes to shower gels? Cheap and cheerful or do you like to indulge?

  4. These look really good, I might just have to purchase some- with my student budget, I'll definitely find a couple of extra £'s to buy 500ml of shower gel! The text on the packaging is really cute, I'd love to try all the ones you have, they all sound so nice :)

  6. My favourite shower gel has got to be Philosophy's Cinnamon Buns, but I am so similar to you in that I don't like spending loads on day-to-day things like shower gel.
    These look brilliant though, cheap and cheerful and amazing smelling by the sounds of it! I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for them next time I'm on Boots' website.
    Great post :)

  13. I love Snow Fairy but it's too expensive so I will definitely give this a sniff if I see it around. I usually buy "invigorating" scents but I'm warming to more feminine ones

  16. Ooh these sound divine, similar packaging to the Philosophy products but thankfully much cheaper.Seeing as everyone is raving about Vanilla Biscuit I might have to give that a try...

  17. The Gingerbread one is amazing! Its definitely my favourite. The only drawback I've found is that being a redheaded lady, a few people tend to think I smell like a big gingerbread man which causes no end of amusement for other people lol. I'm currently using the Strawberry one too :) xx

  18. I am very fickle when it comes to toiletries, change them like the weather! But I do keep going back to Soap and Glory Clean on me shower gel. I love the pump bottle and it smells so lovely!
