Imperial Leather Foamburst Sweet Vanilla & Cherry Blossom Body Wash

Imperial Leather Foamburst Sweet Vanilla & Cherry Blossom Body Wash* - £2.99

If you've never tried a foaming shower gel before then you're really missing out. They bring all the luxury of a long relaxing bath to your quick morning shower. I like the Rituals Foaming Shower Gels but they are a bit on the pricey side. So I was really pleased to hear that Imperial Leather make an incredibly similar product but each bottle is less than half the price of the Rituals ones. Foamburst has been around for quite a while but Imperial Leather have recently relaunched the range with a lovely new bottle design & a new set of beautiful fragrances.

Here I have the Sweet Vanilla & Cherry Blossom body wash. The shower gel starts off a peachy pink gel that quickly turns into a luxurious moisturising foam on contact with water. As soon as you start smoothing it over your body, you're cocooned by the thick sweet-scented foam & it feels so nice on the skin. You don't even need to use a shower pouf with it unless you want a bit of exfoliation. You only need one handful of gel for your whole body & each bottle contains enough product for 40 showers. I always pop a bit extra on my legs because it also works brilliantly as a shaving foam. The scent of this one is very sweet & delicate. The vanilla is the most dominant note here. It smells gorgeous but I don't find that it lingers in the bathroom or lasts on your body which is the only downside.

I'm really impressed by this shower gel. It's such a fun product to use, it smells amazing and it leaves my skin feeling perfectly soft & clean. I love dual-purpose products and this works so well as a thick & creamy base for shaving with. They're such good value so I'll definitely be picking up a few more bottles. Bewitching Blackberry & Wild Fig and Honey & Almond Milk sound too good to pass up!

In celebration of the new range Imperial Leather introduces seven new genies to represent each of the sensual fragrances. Each of the genies holds their own unique personality in representation of each magical new scent. It's a nicely thought out campaign & all the guys are pretty good eye candy haha. The genie for the Sweet Vanilla & Cherry Blossom body wash is Sebastian:

Release Sebastian, he’s a mystical bard who will shower you with sweet poetry & sonnets to ease your body & mind.
