Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Bath and Shower Gel, Body Massage Cream

Hello Everyone,
Today, I am reviewing my favorite shower gel and body lotion combination these days. Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Bath and Shower Gel and  Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Body Massage Cream which I received as a gift from Jafra Spa in an Self-pampering event organized last month.

Price: $17 for 250ml ( on Amazon.com)
Packaging: The Shower gel and Lotion both comes in a cylindrical translucent green colored plastic bottles with a pump dispenser. I like the minty green tint in the packaging, so summery and refreshing. The packaging is hygienic and convenient to use but I don’t find them travel friendly. Though, there is lock functionality but there is always a probability of the bottle getting unlocked during travel.

My Experience with Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Shower Gel and Body Massage Cream:

Jafra Spa Ginger and SeaWeed Shower Gel and Body Massage Cream

Spa Ginger and Seaweed Bath and Shower Gel : It has a slightly thick gel like consistency, tad thicker than The Body Shop Shower Gels. The shower gel is light green color which lathers well with a loofah. I need 2-3 pumps of the gel depending upon if I would like to have rich soapy lather or just enough to cleanse my skin. It has a mild cucumber fresh fragrance, with a subtle spiciness of ginger (not sure if seaweed have any fragrance and what kind of it is) just like the ones you would prefer in summers. But sadly, it is short lived and the fragrance vanishes even before I step out of the shower.

The gel cleanses skin nicely leaving it mildly hydrated, that means normal-dry skinned ladies can skip on layering with body lotion but my super dry skin will be happy if i provide it with little more moisturization and the corresponding Jafra Body Lotion works best for me.

Spa Ginger and Seaweed Body Massage Lotion: This lotion has extremely thin and runny texture but that only makes it apt for sweaty summers. It is minty green colored lotion with a watery feel that applies effortlessly on skin and within seconds it sinks deep into the skin nourishing it from deep under without leaving any greasy residue or slippery feel. The lotion also has similar cucumber fresh fragrance just a tad stronger and a dash of fruity notes compared to the Shower Gel but not like the usual fruit scented lotion. The texture and feel of the lotion reminds me of the Parachute Summer Fresh Lotion with similar fragrance (I suppose) and the same light weight feel. The only glitch here is that the fragrance is short-lived and within minutes of application it diffuses to undetectable levels.

Pros of Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Shower Gel and Body Massage Cream:

  1. Shower gel cleanses well
  2. Doesn’t dry out my skin
  3. Body Massage cream has light weight texture
  4. Gets absorbed quickly
  5. Doesn’t feel sticky or oily
  6. Fresh cucumber fragrance
  7. Infused with natural skin nourishers
  8. Hygienic Packaging
  9. Great for summers

Cons of Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Shower Gel and Body Massage Cream:

  1. Availability might be an issue
  2. Fragrance doesn’t last long
  3. Contains SLES and SLS as top ingredients

Recommedation:  Jafra Spa Ginger and Seaweed Shower Gel and Body Massage Cream makes a great combination for summers. The Shower gel lathers well and gently cleanses away the impurities without sucking the moisture of skin. Body Massage cream as opposed to its name has a light watery lotion like texture which spreads nicely and gets absorbed within seconds. I just wish their fresh cucumber fragrance would have lasted a little longer on me. If you prefer fresh and clean fragrances which are not overpowering for summers, do give them a try.

In summers I prefer to go for a runny consistency lotion.. requires less drudgery in spreading and massaging :P
