OUT – Born to Bio – Organic Black & White Energy Shower Gel (£3.39/300ml)
What Born to Bio says:
Stimulating organic licorice extract has a deliciously scent, which makes this shower gel for men an invigorating and refreshingly unique experience!
- with the natural, stimulating aroma of organic licorice
- extra-mild formula
- dermatologically tested
- soft texture
- COSMEBIO certified
What I say:
When I read licorice in the description of the product I was sold and indeed it has this sweet scent of licorice that I like. This shower gel is a decent one, it does it’s job, but even though I love licorice, I just didn’t love it. I think in a shower gel I just prefer something more herbal or citric to feel more refreshed. The Black & White Energy Shower Gel would probably be a good additional shower gel for use once a week or so when I just want something ‘different’. Other than that this is a great little product, very affordable and the Codecheck shows no harmful ingredients. Born to Bio is also certified by Ecocert and Cosmebio.

First impressions are good, I like the herbal scent of the Melissa and I feel it is more refreshing than the above Born to Bio shower gel. Again, it is a very affordable, yet natural product, so I am looking forward to review this in more depth.
