BOURJOIS “Wake Me!” Shower Jelly Review

Hey guys.. I’m on vacation and been busy with that.. BUT I couldn’t resist any longer to review one of my summer catch (potentially the best? Let’s find out) : BOURJOIS shower gel!

Package backside/Bourjois shower gel collection


If you have been recently shopping in Saudi Arabia, you might have laid eyes on these attractive BOURJOIS sets with special offer which were available in most of the hypermarkets. Each package has two of the eight assorted shower gel bottles and let me tell you each of them looked appealing and fun, with really inviting tags: ‘Beautify me!‘, ‘Tease me!‘. ‘Pamper me!‘, ‘Wake me!‘, ‘Refresh me!‘, ‘Deluxe mousse‘, ‘Dream scrub‘ and ‘Sweet summer‘. And like a cherry on top, every bottle has a cute golden orb on top.

If I could I would have bought all of these – I had a real hard time choosing one set. So after a lengthy mental analysis I picked a set that had ‘Wake me!‘ and ‘Sweet summer‘.

But since there was baggage space restriction, I brought Wake me! out of the two, along with me to Pakistan. First let me give you the details of the product:

  • is a vitamin enriched shower JELLY (not just an ordinary gel)
  • infused with Citrus fruit and Goji berries fragrance
  • is supposed to make your skin feel radiant and energized
  • paraben-free

My Experience

Really really REALLY good! Unlike other shower gels, this jelly would not foam up straight away at the instance you start massaging but rather lets you enjoy the silky pulpy lather gliding onto your skin before it dissolves into a gentle foam. You may think this would make it difficult to rinse off.. but fortunately, you would be wrong.

Loved the citrusy sweet scent which you can smell as soon as the lid is flipped open. And the amazing thing about this shower jelly I discovered is that the scent lingers on your skin for 6+ hours! That sure does uplifts and revives the exhausted ‘you’ in this hot weather. The other amazing thing is of course it being paraben-free: a HEALTH-friendly shower gel.

I haven’t tried Sweet summer yet which is the shower oil, but I bet it would be another bottle full of goodness. I’ll update this section once I get to try it.

So I believe these BOURJOIS shower gel collection would not only become  flirty accessory for a bathroom but also make shower-times more tempting!



Wish list – Gold Themed

Today I decided to do something different. Everybody has a wish list they would like to share with everyone, I’m going to share mine according to themes.. Today I’m doing on “Gold” theme. The objects shown below are not photographed by me, but have been collected from internet and assembled into one with bit of tweaking by me.

gold wishlist

This pair features black and yellow diamonds mounted in 18K Gold. These hoops could make lady of any age look younger and chic, and even if worn alone would look stunning!

With top notes of blood orange and neroli, heart (notes) full of jasmine and orange blossom, and base notes of amber.. this scent sounds like a “bling bling” glamorous fragrance and pretty intense that should be used sparingly yet fervidly. Just the way I like to use and the way I like my scent to be!

Patchi is a designer chocolate brand and I have once had a luxury of devouring the whole box of their popular gold Lingots .. I’m not much of a chocolate person but I tell you those were divine! I love their packaging too and I wouldn’t mind if I’m gifted with one of these gorgeous boxes. 😉

This cube consists of 216 powerful Rare Earth magnetic balls which can be shaped, molded, snapped together in uncountable ways! Sounds fun and something nice to keep me busy and distracted from the monotony around.

These are young green tea leaves and buds rolled into tea-balls that are tied with flowers (yellow lily, white jasmine and pink amaranth) covered with pure edible gold.. which when placed into a glass teapot, will open up the flowers and diffuse the gold into this fascinating hot beverage. Hmmm … it’s like I’m reading a fairy-tale packed with magic. Besides I LOVE green tea. Be it in any form. Specially these majestic gold tea-balls by Delafée, I definitely want to try once in my life time!

Wow! Just wow! Nothing less nothing more do I utter. Every single piece by Cavalli blows me away with awe and admiration. This clutch is one such piece of art that can make into a beautiful accessory for an evening party and bedazzle everyone around you. It can even be paired with another printed clutch as its lining inside.

LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry – Because Lips don’t Lie & they don’t have to!

I’m sure everyone loves lips that don’t lie.. but what if these lies are needed to cover up those ugly tell-tale signs of chapped lips?
The sad truth is that sometimes even good lipsticks and glosses are not enough to completely conceal those lips engraved with unappealing cracks and chaps. What those lips need is .. what they are deprived of – your Care and Attention.. AND a lip balm or a chap stick!
What I use and been using since my childhood is the century-old brand LABELLO which comes in MANY fun flavors and colors. I have used LABELLO in Classic Care, Soft Rosé, Pearly Shine, Fruity Shine (cherry & strawberry), Angel Star and recently I got myself LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry.
As you take the cap off, LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry greets you with an uplifting berrilicious scent and the tempting lovely swirls of pink and soft red colors this marbled stick is graced with. The sight and the scent AND the subtitle “Vitamin Shake” would instantly make anyone want to eat that stick – but PLEASE do NOT try that!
This Vitamin Shake turned out excellent in nourishing my lips with essential vitamins and enrich them with moisture so my lips feel soft, smooth and velvety. The delicious flavor makes me want to envelop my lips generously with this lip balm all the time and it also gives a subtle gloss to them which is a plus!
Give LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry a go and your lips will thank you for so much love and care .. and for never having to lie again!
