Baylis and Harding Wild Rose and Raspberry Luxurious Shower Creme

RRP: £3 for 750ml

--What does the promo say?--
"Pamper yourself with our Wild Rose and Raspberry Leaf luxurious shower creme - as refreshing as spring rain."

While the packaging is simple but effective, with glorious vibrant colours, this is detracted from by the fact that all of the Baylis and Harding packaging is remarkably reminiscent of the more upmarket Molton Brown range.

Slap on while under the shower, lather up, and rinse off. No problems there.

No visible residue is left on the skin after using this pearlescent shower creme, which lathers into off-white suds.

One of the more faithful of the range - while the grapefruit soap did not smell as expect, this tallies up more with its theme (rose), with just enough of a twist of raspberry to add something extra without being too sweet. 

--Texture and consistency--
A bit more viscous than perhaps its higher-end equivalent would be, but at such a low price, who really minds?

The bottle of course is huge and so will serve you well, especially as the amounts required to soap up are relatively small.

--Value for money--
I don't think anybody can be left in any doubt at the value presented by Baylis and Harding's products. However, I still feel that the branding is a little too close for comfort to the higher end brand that it aspires to resemble, and that a more individual identity would only boost its sales.
