Apivita Body Nourish Shower Gel - Review


I'll keep it brief. I was sent this for review months ago in what was obviously a very savvy pre-Marks & Spencer launch PR focus.

In short, it is really, really lovely.

What's in it?

Aqua**, Aqua, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Coco-Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Castoryl Maleate, Polysorbate 20, Parfum, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil*, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil*, Mel* Extract, Persea Gratissima Oil, Tocopherol, Phytosterols, Calendula Officinalis Flower* Extract, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Saponaria Officinalis Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana Leaf*, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil*, Citrus Aurantium Amara Flower Oil*, Glycol Distearate, Citric Acid, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Olivoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Panthenol, Coco-Glucoside, Glycerin, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Glyceryl Oleate, Glyceryl Stearate, Potassium Hydroxide, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Phenoxyethanol, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Benzoic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol

What's good about it?

Beautiful texture
Beautiful scent - not overpowering
Doesn't foam too much, just enough to clean thoroughly
Plastic bottle - good for shower
Non-drying

What's bad about it?

It's £12.00 for 300ml. I'm notoriously cheap when it comes to my body products. I genuinely don't spend a lot - especially on shower gels. I save the moolah for my face.

Packaging - 2/5 - although it's not hard to use, I prefer a tube for showers
Texture - 4/5 - lovely
Performance - 5/5 - perfect
After effects on skin - 5/5 - non drying


If like me, you wouldn't normally spend that on a shower gel - add it to your present list. I'd gratefully receive something this lovely.

Apivita Body Nourish Shower Gel is available from M&S and is £12.00

  1. I must try this one because the one I have - I love the texture but the smell is quite manly! You're right, £12 is quite pricey though haha.

  6. I have to say, Apivita is an amazing Greek brand I've used for years. They have some really good shampoos (lovely for my extra-sensitive scalp), also their masks and scrub are worth a try!!
