Bioglo Caramel Peppermint Shower Cream Review

I am a huge fan of things minty especially peppermint. Currently I am in the craze for peppermint toiletries and I just can't have enough of the sweet minty scent it gives off in the shower. When Cosway launched their new Bioglo Caramel Peppermint Shower Cream, I immediately went to a Cosway outlet in Precint 15 just to buy myself a bottle.

Packaging: The shower cream came in short and fat pet bottle in opaque white with a turquoise flip cap.  The cap cannot be unscrewed open even though. The bottle weighs 200 ml (6.8fl. oz.).

A bottle of minty shower ceam.
 The flip cap opened.

List of ingredients: deinosed water, ammonium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium lactate & sodium gluconate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, glycol distearate, polyquaternium-7, fragrance, styrene/acrylates copolymer, cocamide MEA, glycerin, trehalose, methyl gluceth-20, acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, PEG-14M, allantoin, pistacia vera seed oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, tetrasodium EDTA, methyl lactate, butylene glycol, mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf extract, lactose, hydrolyzed milk protein, glycerin & theobroma cacao (cocoa) extract, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, FD&C yellow No. 5, FD&C Yellow No. 6, FD&C Blue no. 1.

The shower cream has a creamy liquid texture and lathers up very well. It did not feel minty while lathering up but it did felt a bit minty while rinsing off but not so much to make me feel cold under running water. Straight out of the bottle, the shower cream smelled full of peppermint dozed with a hint of sweetness to it. While showering, the shower cream smelled exactly like a milky butterscotch candy. I really like the candy but as a shower gel I felt it was too sweet smelling up to a point of being nauseatingly too sweet. It made me quickly rinse and wipe myself dry. The smell grew on me after several times showering with the shower cream and now I kind of enjoy the candy-ish scent.

The creamy candy scented shower cream.
 Very rich lather.

My verdict: I didn't like the scent at first but it grew on me. It is an enjoyable shower cream to use when the mood for something sweet in the shower strucks me. It did left my skin felt soft and moisturized. Would I repurchase? Only if there's a sale.

You can get the Caramel Peppermint Shower Cream from Cosway outlets for RM12.90. I got mine for RM9.90 during a promotional introductory price.
