Earths Botanics Cucumber & Mint

I don't usually like to make negative comments about products, but I have to start this review with something that's really been upsetting me. I've been using Earths Botanics Cucumber and Mint shower gel and hand and body lotion for a while now and the problem just won't go away. Here's the problem. I'm selfish and like to keep my nice products for myself, however the Earths Botanics Cucumber and Mint products smell so good that hubby uses them too.
Now this wouldn't be so bad if he only had one shower a day, but hubby has at least two, if not three or four showers a day (personally, I think he has a problem, but that's another topic all together).
So instead of my beautiful products lasting me for months and months, they are nearly gone after around six weeks!

Thankfully I have hidden the hand and body lotion from him, so I can use it at my leisure!

Aside from that, I have nothing negative to say about these beautiful products. The scent is gorgeous, very fresh and uplifting. I don't smell a lot of mint, it's more green cucumber. The fragrance lingers in a lovely subtle way that makes me think it'd make a wonderful perfume. 
I find both of these products gentle and hydrating. The shower gel isn't drying at all, I find it to be gentle and hydrating. Similarly, the hand and body lotion is light, very moisturising and when I use it my skin smells lovely all day.

Both the shower gel and hand and body lotion both cost $22 for a 425ml pump bottle and are available from Bella Inspirations.  

Shower gel ingredients: water, disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamide dea, coco glucoside and glycol distearate and glycerin, glycerin, magnesium chloride, peg120 methyl glucose dioleate, sodium chloride, manuka honey, fragrance, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, olive fruit oil, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone. 
These products were sent to me for review.


  1. Anissa this shower gel sounds amazing and scent-wise - right up my alley! I can't find out the ingredients though - can you please tell me if it's sulfate-free? Thanks!x

    1. It's really beautiful. I've update my post to show the ingredients. I think it does contain sulfates, it's got disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate :(

  2. Bummer! Was really looking forward to some cucumber/mint goodness! Thanks for checking/updating!
