Tropical Washin'

I was doing the groceries solo last week when I spotted this glowing beacon of tropical deliciousness in the beauty aisle - already being a huge fan of the Original Source brand meant this Tropical Pineapple scented collaboration with Surfing Australia made a dive right into my basket alongside the orzo and the crouton cup-a-soup I'm currently addicted to.

 
I have a love/hate relationship with pineapple, truth be told. I was a big pineapple lover until a flight in Asia where I became ill after eating pineapple (I think it was the actual flying and not the pineapple that made me sick!) and from that moment on I've proceeded with caution at the thought of that horrendous experience. I think that I need to toughen up and this is definitely the shower gel to get me back into camp pineapple!

All of the Original Source shower gels I've tried are dead set incredible - my favourite was definitely the limited edition Chocolate Mint one, but the Lime and Lemon scents are staples in our bathroom cupboards. The XXX Black Mint one is a bit too tingly for the nether region (TMI?) so the Bovary household tends to steer well clear of that one!

This Tropical Pineapple scent is definitely up there with the best and the fact that it is vegan, has a natural fragrance and is made in the UK means it is a hit with me! The only downside is that it really makes me crave those pineapple lollies from the milk bar (and I don't even normally eat those!)

You can check out the Original Source range here and buy a bottle for yourself from Coles - it's limited edition though, so be quick!

What scents do you gravitate towards for shower gel? Are you a fruity-scent lover or prefer a creamy shea butter base?

  1. LOL @ "glowing beacon of tropical deliciousness"!

    I get how you feel. I had an ill moment with tomatoes while on a trip during high school and it was a few years before I could eat raw tomatoes again without turning green. *mumbles something about tequila too*

    I love monoi things as my own beacon of tropics during cold weather! And when it's actually hot, I turn to minty or lemony things. Never really got into pineapple and I don't see too many pineapple scented things here!

    1. Haha what can I say, that line flowed naturally once I'd used this! LOL tequila, yup that is me with vodka no thank you ma'am.

      I don't even know what monoi is but it sounds luxe and tropical? Perhaps not in my side of the world but maybe I will spot something monoi when I go to Hawaii?

  2. Hahaha I totally get that! I remember getting sick after my favourite Korean Restaurant and stayed away fro YEARS because of that. It wasn't the food, it was the smells. And I was pregnant at the time.
    I don't mind fruity tropical shower gels in the summer! This sounds nice!

    1. Ohh I'm nervous about what I'll be turned off when I am pregnant - it will probably make me hate delicious things like coffee and cheese ah!

  6. Sounds like it would smell absolutely divine :)
    I have a problem with watermelon (and also things that have a watermelon scent) :P
    The thing is that I used to LOVE watermelon and I ate it all the time.. until I came home from the grocery store and was going to eat my newly bought watermelon and found it to be old and gooey.
    It did not look that way in the store because of the wrapping around the watermelon but as I removed it long, slimey, gelé like strings came out from the watermelon and I decided that I would NEVER eat watermelon ever again ;)
