Midweek Post: Another SLS free shower gel.

Burt's Bees Fabulously Fresh Peppermint and Rosemary Body Wash, £9.99 for 350ml.

This is the third post in my sort-of mini series about SLS and paraben- free shower products. Natural bathing products interest me and feel so much more indulgent than those that are not, because I know that they aren't full of cheap chemicals. If you missed my post about these naughty ingredients, you can catch up on it here.

In comparison to the L'occitane Almond Shower Oil that I featured last time, this one is a bit more purse friendly, costing £9.99 for 350ml compared to the former at £17.50 for 250ml. This lathers up so well, it is so foamy and rich with a gorgeous scent of peppermint with a hint of herb (that would be the rosemary, but it in no way has an overpowering influence, it's all about the mint here.)

There's also other 'flavours' in the same range that I am keen to try. My discovery of the Burt's Bees body washes was a nice surprise, I wasn't aware that they were SLS and paraben free until I looked at the ingredients list when I was browsing in store one day. It is nice that I managed to find a body wash in Boots that ticked all the boxes. In terms of my skin, I have noticed a small decrease in the irritation/itching I would get after washing, but knowing my shower gels are chemical free help put my mind at ease rather than anything else.

I would completely recommend this, it's a perfect morning shower gel because it is so freshly scented and lathers up just as well as any shower gel packed with SLS.

Thanks for reading,



  1. I bought my friend one of the other scents of this for her birthday and I really want to try this out for myself! x

  2. Great review hun, I haven't tried this one. I posted a review about balance me moisturising body wash on my blog earlier if your interested, xoxo.

  3. I didn't know these were SLS free either, really need to check this out. I bet it smells nice too.

  4. I'm not a fan of Burt Bees for various reasons but I will only use natural & sls free shower gels, I'm addicted always trying new one :)

  5. I like the milk and honey scent the best, these are very good value for money. x

  6. I really want to try something like this, great review.

  7. I saw this today and was very tempted to pick it up, might go for it next time though as it sounds lovely! Love the price of Burt's Bees products :) x
