Following their in-house nail paint range, Nykaa has launched their own line of bath and body products. The range consists of a shower gel, a body lotion, and a body mist in four fragrance variants: French Lavender, Country Rose, Fresh Aqua, and Tropical Jasmine. Moreover, this range was endorsed by some of my favorite YouTubers. Being a floral kind of a person, I wanted to indulge my senses into French Lavender and Country Rose shower gels from this latest range. Let’s first check out how French Lavender shower gel fared on me.

My Experience with Nykaa French Lavender Shower Gel
Packaging: This shower gel comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a black push cap. The actual shower gel comes in a beautiful lavender color, brimming to the neck of the bottle. The front label has a classy picture of a model and lavender flowers, whereas the back label sources all the necessary information. As it holds 300 ml of product, the bottle seems to be bulky and heavy, making it not so travel friendly. However, the packaging is sturdy and leak-proof. It is quite an ordinary packaging, nothing fancy or appealing.
Texture: The texture of this shower gel is thick and runny. Only a little amount of product is needed. Therefore, this bottle is going to last for longer. The actual shower gel comes in a translucent pale lavender color. It lathers up very well with or without a loofah. As the shower gel is thick, using a loofah was not harsh on the skin.
Fragrance: This shower gel has a mild, calming lavender scent to it, which is so soothing. Unfortunately, when you start to lather the product, you get only soapy smell. I can hardly smell lavender then on. Such a disappointing factor indeed! Moreover, the fragrance does not last long as well.
Performance: This shower gel is a good hygiene product that cleans us and produces abundant foamy lather while not irritating the skin. It is so soft, gentle, and smooth on the skin. It does not rip of moisture from the skin nor dry out the skin. Probably, the presence of glycerin is taking care of it. However, it does not have moisturizing effect as well. I love its paraben-free formula. The shower gel leaves the skin refreshed. How I wish its scent to be appealing! The fragrance, like other body washes, does not last very long, but if followed up with other products from this range, probably the fragrance will last longer. If you are someone who gets bored using the same shower gel for a longer period, then add another one to your washroom, as this bottle of 300 ml is going to last you for a very long time. For its price, you get a really good amount of product. However, its price tag is calling it to be compared to The Body Shop shower gels. If you had used them, you could have made out what I am trying to say here. Overall, a good, value-for-money shower gel.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Nykaa French Lavender Shower Gel
If you are someone who likes to use products that are completely value for money for its quantity, then this shower gel is genuinely good for you. I already have the Country Rose variant to be used, so I will not be repurchasing this shower gel.
