You spent how much on a shower gel?

Diptyque Revitalizing Shower Gel 200ml £26.00 from SpaceNk
I don't think there's anything more indulging than splashing the cash on some bath time pamper treats. We all know they're not a necessity (spending a lot of money that is not washing) but there's something about bathing in high end products that makes me feel all the more special.
It's taking the time to really enjoy the products you're using and not just going through the motions like we do on a day to day basis. It's having a bit of "me" time, pampering ourselves and bringing out the big guns when it comes to the products we're using.
Now, there will be some of you reading this that thinks spending £26.00 on a shower gel is way too much. And I hear ya! I have never spent this much on a shower gel, the most I spend is £18.00 on some Molton Brown, but you do get 300ml of product as oppose to 200ml (which this is), and it was a complete impulse purchase as I was "feeling spendy".
So what does a £26.00 shower gel consist of? The Diptyque range is well known for its luxury and gorgeous smelling candles and perfumes and this shower gel is not different. It's rich and sensuous with a spicy masculine aroma, which I personally love but others my not be so keen. It's also fresh and clean feeling with the introduction of Peppermint essence and the richness stems from the Bergamot, Green Mandarins and Neroli. All of these blended together makes a truly indulgent and relaxing experience, but then you would expect so wouldn't you?
As a shower gel goes it cleans the skin and lathers up well (so all good there then). But what makes me go back to it time and time again is the scent and I love how it lingers on the skin after use. It just smells divine and makes me feel very posh when I've used it.
Will I buy it again? I don't know, even though I love it I do find myself wincing every time I pour a bit into my hand. If I could find the same scent cheaper then I would! For now I'm going to enjoy this little bit of luxury in my life and pray someone buys me a back-up!  Any takers?
What's the most you've spent on a shower gel? Have you tried this before?


  1. Splurges every once in a while are never a bad thing and obviously more often if you can. I mean why not. This product sounds amazing.
