Boots No7 Luxurious Foaming Shower Oil Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 1 - 2010

Today will go down in history.

I finally reached the bottom of my seemingly bottomless bottle of Soap & Glory Clean on Me.  Usually, when I get bored of something shower-related I tell Mr. L to use it up for me.  That way, I don’t feel guilty cracking open something new when I’ve still got half a bottle/tube/whatever of something else on the go.  But Mr. L wasn’t playing ball with my S&G – too girly smelling apparently *eye roll*.

I picked the Boots No7 Luxurious Foaming Shower Oil up a couple of months ago and it’s been gathering dust ever-since.  Just as I’d turned the shower on this morning, I realised I was all out and hot-footed it across the landing, dripping water as I went.  Once I’d remembered where I’d stashed it, I dripped my way back into the shower only to realise that I hadn’t taken a photo of it for the blog!

I left the shower again and drip, drip, dripped my way into the bedroom, grabbing my camera as I went. Plonked the box on the windowsill and started snapping away.  3 minutes later, I’d finished snapping and glanced up to see my neighbour’s curtain twitch.

So now, not only does my neighbour know that I have one boob bigger than the other.  He know’s WHICH FREAKIN’ BOOB IT IS.

Dedication.  This review had better be worth it.

Oh yeah… the review…

I didn’t like it.  It barely lathered.  Wimpy, weak lather that didn’t smell of anything much at all.  Very, very lightly scented.

I tried again… and used enough to bathe Geoff Capes twice over and still…. it just gave me a thin surface layer of bubbles.  Didn’t feel much like luxury to me.  Being an oil and all… did it make my skin feel smoother or softer?  Nope.  Nothing more than any other moisturising shower gel.  It didn’t strip me of any moisture…. but let’s face it, this stuff is £8.75 a bottle (cheaper with a No7 till spit) but still… it’s a MEH kinda product.

And that’s my official rating.  At least my neighbour enjoyed it.

    Lol that really made me laugh!! Nice to know what a good neighbour you are!?!?!

    I was looking at picking this up at the weekend so I’m glad I didn’t. Heard a few mixed reviews about it. I’m just at the end of my L’Occitane Almond shower oil, so maybe I’ll just stick to that ;o)

    I thought it was just me and I had a dud bottle or something but I got the same results – very disappointing. It was worth all the dripping if your review stops a few people wasting money on this.

    @LeanneOCD – stick to L’Occitane, it’s what a shower oil should be like.

    AHaha, I always wander about near my windows with not much on, living on the ground floor this is a problem. Can’t wait to move into my bf’s top floor place! Great review, I’ll steer clear.
    I also know what you mean about Clean On Me – I have half a bottle left and I bought it before Christmas, it’s taking the piss! I do love it though, it’s the oh so convenient pump that stops me wasting it, even if I use 4 pumps it doesn’t seem to go down!

  4. Funniest review ever! lol

    If you havent tried L’occitane Almond Oil yet, its a must, beautifully scented and moisturising- I think you’ll love it!! I use this and only this, and have never got tired of it! £15 for 250ml. Having said that, im also a big fan of Liz Earle Orange Flower body wash for the summer months also (Charlotte you must try this too!) I think thats around £12 for 200ml. Let me know how you get on.

    Good review haha!

    Your reviews are always fun to read 🙂

    I don’t get it, why Mister Lipglossiping didn’t want to use S&G? My husband went to great lenghts trying to dissuade me from taking it with me on a travel so he could have it all for himself while I was away. Men… xxx

    haha! Excellent review, such a shame it’s a naff product because it looks like it should be lovely. I’ll give it a miss.

    I’d love to know what colour paint you have on that wall though!

  11. I need to go try the L’Occitane don’t I? I really rate them – I have the facial cleansing oil (apple/almond) and it’s easily in my top 3.

  12. @Nicola – the wall?! LOL um… it’s Crown, almond something… you should be able to find it if you look at the creams/neutrals section! xx

  13. NicolaOCD says:

    @Lipglossiping I’m looking for a facial cleansing oil maybe I’ll try the L’Occitaine!

    Re the paint: Do you know what? I think I had that colour in my old house, no wonder I was draw to it!
