Review : Olivella Bath and Shower Gel
Create your own at-home spa oasis in your bath tub or shower with the new Olivella® Bath and Shower Gel, which turns into a creamy lather to nourish and moisturize the skin while it cleanses. The refreshing, light, Mediterranean citrus scent invigorates your senses, while the formula, made with 100% natural virgin olive oil, pampers your skin with high concentrations of natural vitamins, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants.
Ingredients such as squalene, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and polyphenols give the gel hydrating and properties, while your skin naturally benefits from olive oil’s precious anti-aging properties.

I bought this humongous 500ml clear bottle of shower gel online from its shop. It was delivered by hand in a rose printed box with other purchases from the same line.
Very lovely and feminine and the box is too pretty for me to re-use it, although eventually I did.
The bottle is bulky, takes up space and definitely not travel-friendly. It comes with a flick-top cap with a tiny opening. And because the texture of the gel is runny, it flows easily from the tiny opening.
It foams slightly.
I chose mine in Lavender which smells like Lavender, infused with olive oil for skin goodness and contains natural anti-oxidants and a high concentration of vitamins.
But my skin doesn't like it because it left my skin abit drying with a squeaky clean feeling. And so, I had my hubby to share it with me else using it alone would take ages to deplete it. Men always has resilent skin, don't they?
It retails for $17.90 and can also be found at John Little Marina Square and Jurong Point.
Other scents include Classic, Orange and Vanilla.
It scored a 5 from Skin Deep with a moderate health concern due to it containing fragrance and DMDM Hydantoin
