Shower gel test 2021: the best for a fresh skin feeling

Especially when it is warm outside, it is simply part of it: the daily shower. Whether in the morning to wake up, in the evening after a strenuous day or simply after exercising: taking a shower gives us a fresh feeling.

But even if one might initially think that the skin is well supplied with moisture by water, the opposite is the case. Because water can also remove moisture from the skin and showering can be stressful for our skin. In particular, water that is too hot, too frequent showers or the wrong shower gel can dry out our skin.

So what do you do if you want to feel fresh and clean despite everything? In the future, it is better to use moderately warm water and a good shower gel, and to apply lotion to the body immediately after the shower. For our shower gel test 2021, we looked at different brands in comparison and tested which products are particularly caring and gentle on the skin.

"Happiness Organic Orange and Mango" shower gel from Sante
Price: from 3.95 euros

The care shower from Sante with orange and mango should not only have a delicious, fruity scent, but should also cleanse particularly gently. Since it is natural cosmetics, the shower gel should also be suitable for sensitive skin and provide gentle care, as it is free from artificial fragrances or questionable ingredients such as PEG. In our shower gel test in 2021, we therefore also tested Sante, a natural cosmetics brand.

application:
We used Sante's "Happiness" shower gel for our shower gel test in 2021 every day for several weeks. Despite the purely natural ingredients, the shower gel has a good consistency and foams when you shower. The scent is really great: fruity-tropical, without smelling artificial and therefore simply great for the summer. In addition, our sensitive skin tolerated the shower gel well.

We can therefore recommend the shower gel to anyone who has sensitive skin or is prone to allergies.

Due to the delicious scent and the fact that the "Happiness" shower from Sante, according to the code check, is the only one that does not contain any questionable substances, it is our personal test winner.

Our conclusion:
After using the "One Ginger Morning" for a long time for our shower gel test in 2021, we are satisfied with the product. In fact, we find the ginger scent very invigorating, especially in the morning or after exercise. After a shower, our skin feels fine: it is neither dry nor looks overly well-groomed. For this reason, we would not necessarily recommend the gel to people with sensitive or dry skin. Another plus for us, however, is the great price-performance ratio, as the large bottle really lasts for a long time. So all in all a shower gel that we can recommend to anyone who likes fresh fragrances.
