Speed Review: Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Shower Mousse
I usually use shower gels but I've recently been reaching for Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Shower Mousse.
The bright pink colour of the plastic bottle appealed to me. The packaging is functional with a pump dispenser and I liked that the bottle is sufficiently transparent so as to be able to tell how much product is remaining.
The pump dispenses a light foam. It's a soft lather as opposed to the rich and creamy texture which you might associate with a shave gel, for example. I felt as though this saves a little time as there's no need to work the product into a lather.
I liked the scent, which is described as passion fruit, mango and citrus. It's a pleasant tropical, fruity floral that wasn't at all sickly. Unfortunately, it doesn't linger on the skin after showering.
I had been concerned that the mousse formula would prove drying on the skin but I didn't notice any particular dryness or tightness on my skin following use.
I enjoyed using this product and may be tempted to pick it up again in future. Having said that, I'd only do so if it was on offer (the brand is often on offer in Boots) because I feel that the £8 for 200ml price tag is a little too much.
