Penhaligon's Quercus Shower Gel Review

This post is on a product without which you just cannot go in summers. You definitely need this atleast 2-3 times a day to deal with these extreme summers. I am talking about Shower Gels, which along with giving you great bath & shower, makes you feel refreshed after a tiring day and even before the start of a busy day. You can skip any cream, lotion, moisturizer in summer but not a body wash. One can definitely substitute it with a bath soap but body wash is much preferred.

I normally prefer the refreshing shower gels in the morning and soothing one in the night. Currently I am using this Penhaligon's Quercus Bath & Shower Gel in the morning and Palmolive Thermal Spa Body Wash at night, both of these are just about to finish.

Penhaligon's Quercus Bath & Shower Gel Review

This is my first post from the brand Penhaligon's. I have tried other skin and hair care products from this brand like Quercus Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Lotion. I got all these products in my very travel friendly travel kit. I am giving special emphasis to the word travel friendly because of its small size and unique leek proof packaging. All the products come in similar packaging but just vary in size little bit. Here starts my review on Quercus Shower Gel from Penhaligon's.


This Quercus Shower Gel comes in very cute looking transparent bottle with a cute small rolling twister at the top, which makes this bottle totally leak proof and travel friendly to carry. Along with being travel friendly, the bottle looks very cute because of being transparent and of unique shape.

Quercus Shower Gel Review

The consistency of the shower gel is slightly thicker than regular body wash, splash and appears almost transparent with a light yellow tint. The best part about this brand is that almost all products from Penhaligon's have a very divine and sensuous fragrance. At least I find them very divine and royal. I have heard rave reviews about its perfume but haven't yet tried it but I can make through the fragrance of its other products that its perfume must be really divine.

On application this gel lathers nicely with my loofah and requires very less amount. The fragrance lasts for long and one can even feel its effect after hours. Regarding its cleaning part, this body wash lathers well gives you squeaky clean skin, without making it dry. Only thing is that it does not give any exfoliation effect like my previous Dove Exfoliating Body Wash. Though its not something bad, but would have loved if it had that exfoliating feature.
