Nature Box Macadamia Oil Shower Gel is packaged in a 385ml dark yellow 25% recycled plastic flip top bottle. The shower gel has a pleasantly sweet, almost fruity yet slightly nutty smell.
The scent is described on their website as being “oriental”, with bergamot, macadamia and almond making up the top notes. Tonka, coconut milk and vanilla make up the heart notes, while musky and wood notes form the background.
It lathers up really well on a shower pouf and didn’t dry out my skin. The consistency is good, it doesn’t run out of the bottle, so it’s easy to control how much is coming out, and it stays on the shower pouf without running through your fingers.
I do prefer to decant my shower gels into a pump style bottle (and keep and old shower gel bottle for this purpose), as I find I waste less if I’m able to put count the number of pumps onto my shower pouf, so I know exactly how much I need next time. This number varies between shower gels and body washes, depending on the consistency and lather of each product. It also means that I have the perfect amount of shower gel and don’t end up running out of lather halfway through my shower, or heaven forbid, the opposite, and have way too much, which ends up being washed down the drain and wasted.
Made with 100% cold pressed macadamia oil, known to contain valuable vitamins and an antioxidant, this shower gel cleanses my skin without stripping it or leaving it feeling dry. It’s paraben free, contains no artificial colourants, is pH skin neutral and dermatologically tested. I really enjoyed using this shower gel from Nature Box, and I’m keen to try their Coconut-Oil Shower Gel next. I bet it smells amazing.
