Review: Etie'no Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Shower Gel

Etie'no Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Shower Gel packaging is simple but attractive and suitable for its purpose. This shower gel has a pearl colour and a thick consistency. Ylang-Ylang is a rich exotic, floral scent. It is believed to relieve high blood pressure, normalise sebum secretion for skin problems and is considered to be an aphrodisiac. I find this fragrance interesting, slightly heavy but not over powering. The picture below demonstrates the lather achieved when rubbing directly onto my hand.  

If you use the gel on a bath puff then the lather does improve.  Do remember that if you live in a hard water area this can sometimes affect the suds. 

By the way, the picture below illustrates what I mean when I say bath/shower puff.  I have noticed some people refer to them as a loofah but loofahs in my mind are hard sponges on a wooden handle. Other fragrances are available - Grapefruit, Geranium & Ginger and Lemongrass & Patchouli. On the website you can also find a selection of face products, scrubs, body butters and handmade soaps.
