Smile to your computer/phone screen if you are guilty of using an excessive amount of shower gels (especially if they smell like heaven) during baths just so you can diffuse the air surrounding you with a nice fragrance. When I shop for shower gels, I tend to choose the strongly scented ones, knowing that the scent will linger longer on my skin. But I soon come to realize that chemically-scented soaps can sometimes be too overpowering and I often grew to dislike it over time. Instinctively, I find myself drawn towards soap bars which are naturally scented with essential oils or plant extracts. These are the ones which have therapeutic effects over your body and other healing properties on your skin.
I stuck to handcrafted soap bars previously but now I am back to shower gels with Que Origin which produced shower gels infused with natural essential oils. This is a local brand that produces vegan-friendly natural shower gels and Jelli-Qs are body polishes. I am supporting such local brands that embrace Mother Nature too!
Their shower gels consist of a blend of Aloe Vera, Argan oil, and potent botanical extracts. The shower gel formula is also infused with natural essential oils hailing from Australia and made in Korea. Their Jelli-Qs, on the other hand, are handcrafted in Singapore with love.
Their products exclude numerous harmful ingredients such as Parabens, Sodium Laurel Sulphate, Synthetic fragrances, Sodium Hydroglycinate, Phenoxethenol and all sulphates too. Thus what you are really enjoying in this bottle is a beautiful blend of essential oils that also works gently to cleanse your body as you shower. These shower gels double up as a bubble bath.
The formula does foams quite well though it doesn’t produce a lot of lather but I like the fact that the every drop of the gel is soap and you don’t need much product for each wash. As you shower, you will begin to enjoy each scent and I particularly like their new shower blend, Morning Melody. It contains a blend of Geranium, Lavender, Lemongrass and Peppermint that awakens your senses and makes a perfect morning shower gel.
Not to mention that it is also enriched with skin soothing aloe vera, moisturising argan oil, and other skin loving natural botanical extracts which all worked together to gently cleanse, nourishes and hydrates your skin. Que Origins products are PETA certified Vegan and its products do not undergo any form of animal testings.
The other two new shower blends are Sanctuary of Rest and Citrus-licious. Sanctuary of Rest has a good dose of lavender for a calming effect while Citrus-licious has a tropical scent of oranges, lemon, lime, and grapefruit.
It is safe for those with sensitive skin since it doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients. Since it contains argan oil and other nourishing ingredients, make sure you leave the product a little longer on your skin in the shower for all the goodness of the product to transfer to your skin. It’s only a pity that the scent is not strong enough to linger on your skin though your whole bathroom will smell like flowers. Right now, I am using the citrus-licious and every time I stepped out of the shower I smell like oranges. That might trigger the bees to come after me.
