Soap and Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel Review

Woohoo! Ladies and gentlemen, I have found another shower gel that I LOVE! I need more shower gels about as much as I need another hole in my head, when you look at how many I have in my shower (and waiting in the wings to go in my shower when the ones in current rotation are gone), but the fact is that there really aren't very many different ones I can use comfortably. I have eczema on my body that is relatively mild most of the time, but will flare up and cause my skin terrible irritation if I use products that my skin does not agree with. Who wants to be monstrously itchy? Not me.

Here are a few reasons why I adore Soap and Glory's Clean on Me:

... it does not irritate my skin at all and is lightly moisturizing without making me feel like I have some kind of funky residue on my skin after using it.

... it smells great while I'm using it! Clean on Me has a fruity-floral scent that I find smells even more like Dior's Miss Dior EDP (the one that used to be called Miss Dior Cherie until last year, not the original Miss Dior) than the Miss Dior shower gel does. Like Miss Dior, it smells to me of strawberries, oranges, jasmine, rose, caramel, and musk.

... the scent doesn't linger on my skin after the shower, so I can wear any perfume or lotion I want and not have to worry about conflicting scents.

... it comes in a travel size, 3.4 oz for $5. This happens to be exactly the TSA's limit for liquids/gels in a carry-on - how convenient! It also makes a great option for an item you can add onto a not-quite-$50 Sephora order to get free shipping. I bought a travel size from Sephora before buying the full size; it lasted me for about 10 full-body washes, but I like to be very generous with my body washes on loofahs, so it might last someone who uses it more sparingly closer to 20 washes.

... it comes in a huge 16.2 oz size WITH A PUMP for $14. I love it when shower products have pumps because they are so much less messy to use! After using up my travel size, I purchased the full size Clean on Me in my last Sephora order and just put it into my shower today. I can't wait to start using it again and I can definitely foresee repurchasing it again in the future.
