Noble Isle Summer Rising
I received this shower gel in my last Glossybox and my first thoughts were that I liked the bottle and design. Simple, but it looked upmarket.
Noble and Isle is a British company who say they want to reinvent the British summer with this and the three other shower gels in their range. They also claim that the gel will leave the skin soft, clean and sumptuously scented.
The one I received was called Summer Rising Cornish Hedgerows and is meant to "evoke the beginnings of summer, with extracts of toning elderflower and antioxidant-charged gooseberry with clean notes of orange blossom, moss and cut grass."
I can't say that I smelt any grass and moss, or could single out the other frangrances, but it had a light and refreshing smell, which on first thoughts wouldn't be too out of place in a unisex or man's shower gel. Nonetheless it was pleasant, and summery. And true to its word it did leave a lingering smell after I had washed it off, unlike many other shower gels I have used.
Unlike other gels I found it quite thick - in a good way. Only a little was needed and it lathered up quite well. Cost efficient in the long run, but while talking of cost, a 250ml bottle would set you back £20. A little pricey for a shower gel in my opinion, no matter how nice it is.
You can buy it here. Have you tried this? If you did, what did you think of it?
