Summer is here and all we can think of now are hacks to make ourselves feel cool and combat the heat which came early this year. One crucial hack and a basic is a good "thanda" bath but what makes it better is a nice fragrant shower gel or body wash that makes us feel nice, clean, and fresh. We all have our own preferences when it comes to fragrances. Some like it floral, many reach out for fruit scents, and sometimes, all we want is a fresh minty fragrance. Off late we have brands coming up with ocean, breezy, and cocktail-inspired fragrant bath essentials as well which take our bath to the next level. So which body wash or shower gel is the best for summer? Here is a list of some tried and tested washes by me which are affordable, effective with a good rating by many and if you are lucky. you may get them at a good discount amid sale time!

The Body Shop's British Rose

Oh, this is super floral and I love how I smell after a nice long bath using this shower gel. This is a soap-free cleanser and costs Rs 345 for 250 ml. You do not need a lot especially if you are using a loofah. It has a rich lather and in the essence of hand-picked British roses makes you feel oh so luxurious that I would recommend you use it especially when you are in the mood to pamper yourself.

Need a pick me up? This shower gel is what you might want to try. There are many reasons why you would love this and buy a 240 ml bottle for Rs 380. It is affordable, a little on the loofah goes a long way, it is vegan, sulfate-free, soap-free, non-drying, and has a gentle cleansing formula. This shower gel is perfect for those work-from-home mornings when all you need is to revive yourself for the upcoming work hours. It also makes you think of the time when we could travel freely before the pandemic, make us reminisce our vacay days with a cocktail in our hands by the beaches of Goa or Puducherry. Give this affordable gel a try.

This one is another refreshing shower gel I feel in love with. It is a bit on the pricier side but a coin size amount is enough on the loofah. It costs Rs 599 for a 200 ml bottle and has the extracts of mint & tulsi. It has the vedic properties of tulsi which help cleanse the skin with its anti-bacterial properties. It also has neem (Azadirachta indica), tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), pudina (Mentha piperata), aloe vera, coconut water and a purified water surfactant base. Also, it looks nice on your bathroom shelf. I love the packaging!
