Palmolive Thermal Spa Firming Shower Gel : Review

One of the very few things I bought soon after the ban ended were shower gel and nail polish remover. Though I don't like soaps I had to use them for a month and I was dying to get a shower gel. I rushed to the convenience store near by and got a shower gel from the ones available there. The Palmolive Thermal Spa Firming Shower Gel looked pretty with that teal color and also seeing the word 'firming' I just picked it up immediately as my skin needs that very badly.


The soapy shower gel smells strongly of some shampoo that I have used in the past. The shower gel lathers very well but however this didn't last me for more than a month. The shampoo fragrance is a bit strong initially but it subsides down slowly over a period of time. The shower gel feels very soapy on my skin and does not give the squeaky clean feeling at all. It totally failed me on the firming part. As I have started gymming I badly wanted this to take care of the firming but it did not :(

  • The color and the packaging is very pretty.
  • It lathers really well.
  • Many variants available.
  • The fragrance lasts for a long time.
  • Easily available.
  • Affordable.

  • Feels soapy even after bath. Does not give that squeaky clean feeling.
  • Smells of some shampoo that I am not too fond of.
  • Didn't do any firming !


The price of Palmolive Thermal Spa Firming Shower Gel is Rs.125 for 250 ml.


The Palmolive Thermal Spa Firming Shower Gel is not a must-have for sure and since it failed on its firming claim I was disappointed. As it leaves my skin really soapy I am not too fond of it too so I wouldn't be repurchasing this shower gel but I am tempted to try the other variants. Since the summer is at its peak I would prefer something that is light, fruity and fresh and if at all I find one will share the same here :)

  1. this my current body wash... i like it :-)

    1. For me there is nothing to hate it.. but nothing to like it as well :(

  2. shower gel claiming firming .... weird :/ . . i usually like palmolive washes, but why do they make such exaggerated claims :/

  3. Nice one Aarthi.. I don't have any special liking towards palmolive shower gels expect for the fact that they are super cheap:)

    1. Really affordable but I've read that a couple of them are really really good.

  4. I hate it when products claim a lot but don't do anything! >.<
    I love their Thermal Spa shower gel!

    1. True Neha.. I heard a couple of them are good. Will try them soon.
