Hi there! Today’s post is about Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash. I’ve already reviewed Dr. Organic’s Aloe Vera hair products, and if you’d like to read that review, click here. Now, without further ado, onto the body washes!
Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash is average. The faint aloe vera and lemon fragrance isn’t unpleasant, but very forgettable. I’ve noticed that this shower gel isn’t very cleansing. It’s definitely not for your post-workout shower…
Dr. Organic‘s Manuka Honey Body Wash is disappointing. Whilst it smells wonderful from the bottle, the fragrance changes as soon as the shower gel hits the skin. I’d describe the fragrance as… warm plastic! And just like the aloe vera shower gel, this one isn’t very cleansing. If you’re sweaty, use something else!
All in all, I wouldn’t recommend these shower gels. I wanted to love them, but they’re not great. If you’d like to try them, Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash are available as 75ml and 250ml. I paid £1 each for the small travel size bottles (special offer).

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dr. Organic Bioactive Haircare Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo & Conditioner. These 2 products claim to be be vegan & cruelty-free. The shampoo and conditioner are aimed at all hair types, and they promise to nourish hair.
How’s the shampoo? I’m pleasantly surprised. The shampoo is SLS-free, but it lathers up perfectly, and it feels clarifying. Nice! It smells more like lemons than aloe vera, but that’s not too much of an issue for me.
And the conditioner? This one’s difficult. I think this is actually a reasonable conditioner – even for long hair. But it’s also by far the worst smelling conditioner I’ve ever had. It smells like an old hair brush! The smell doesn’t linger, but who wants to condition their hair with something that smells like greasy + dirty hair? 🤢 Having said that, I appreciate that (because of the natural ingredients) fragrances can differ from batch to batch…
Based on my experience I would recommend the shampoo. If you’d like to try the conditioner, I recommend you give it a sniff before you buy it.
Dr. Organic Bioactive Haircare Organic Aloe Vera Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 75ml and 265ml each. I paid £1 each for the 75ml travel size bottles (special offer). The full size products are just over £6 each.

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since early January, so let me show you what I bought since then. 🙂
I bought 3 The Body Shop shower gels – Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries. They were £2.50 each.
The Body Shop’s Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion was £2, the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette was £5, and the Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion was £2. I’ve already reviewed the body lotions – click here.
About 10 days later I placed another TBS order. This time I bought an Italian Summer Fig shower gel (£3), an Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette (£6), another Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette (£5), and a Polynesian Island Tiaré shower gel (£2).
I also picked up 3 Models Own flakie polishes – the names are Golden Shore, Red Sea and Aqua Splash. The polishes were £1.49 each (Superdrug, bargain bin).
I bought 2 Dr. Organic Body Washes – Aloe Vera & Manuka Honey. These were on sale (£1 each) at Holland & Barrett.
I also picked up a Dr.Organic shampoo & conditioner combo – Aloe Vera again! And I bought Sukin’s Purifying Shampoo. These 3 products were £1 each.
I bought Garnier’s Honey Flower Cleansing Milk + Toner. These products were on special (Save 1/3 at Superdrug’s), and they were £2.29 each. Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub was £1. It looks like the entire line is going to be discontinued. 😦
I fell in love with Caolion’s charcoal face soap, and I really want to try more products with charcoal. So I bought this massive 195g Yes To Tomatoes Soap. It was £4.99 (Holland and Barrett). I picked up 3 Superdrug face masks (Manuka honey, charcoal, Dead Sea clay). These were 99p each, but there was also a 3 for 2 deal, so I paid £1.98 for these 3 masks.
I also got 2 Skin Republic Spoil Yourself With Bubbles sheet masks. They’re £4.99 each, but they were a free gift with purchase (free when you buy 3 skin care products). I received 2 sheet masks because I bought 6 skin care items. 🙂
Oh, I also bought 2 new duvet cover sets. These were £14 each (king size) and I picked them up at my local Asda store (the photos are from Asda’s web site). Yes, this isn’t beauty related, but I’m so happy with the good quality of these sets that I wanted to say… if you’re looking for new duvet cover sets, you need to swing by your local Asda – they have dozens of amazing prints!
Back to the beauty stuff! Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!
