I want a proper grown up shower gel that smells exactly like Childs Farm bedtime bubbles... any suggestions?

Finally got round to pouring some into DS’s bath this evening and OMG it smells amazing... it has a sort of 90’s Body Shop smell to it (in a good way). I had a quick squint at the bottle and it appears the lovely smell is tangerine oil... but I can’t for the life of me find any tangerine based shower gels. Could anyone suggest something I could try?

If you or someone you know is a member of Beauty Pie their ‘soul providers’ body wash smells similar.

Why not just use the Child’s Farm one? Natural source do essential oil ones, I think there’s a tangerine one.

Radox do a mandarin and lemongrass one which is lovely but not smelt child's farm so can't comment on similarity. I can't think of anything I've seen with tangerine obviously in it sad

Use Child's Farm then.

I use Child's Farm orange body wash in the shower

I use loads of Childs Farm products. They have an adult range now, Farmology. Body Shop still do Satsuma shower gel too.

I use The Body Shop Satsuma shower gel (and body butter!) It's my absolute favourite and takes me back to being a youngster. I remember having the soap bars of it back then.

I don’t think child’s farm has an age limit! Just use it!

Agree just use that! Bubble bath and shower gel are essentially the same thing.

The child’s farm stuff is pretty pricey for how much you get in a bottle or I would use it!

It’s often on offer - 500ml for £6. The Body Shop satsuma one is much more expensive at £6.99 for 250ml.

Maybe you could let us know your budget. ‘Grown up’ implies that you don’t mind spending a bit more.

OP, I bought the raspberry scented Child’s farm for myself yesterday, because I liked the smell of DD’s so much

Home bargains had in for £2 last week, I got yesterday’s bottle from Asda for £1.50!

The fig range is really good. And the sunscreen. Oh and the blackberry and apple fragrance. I haven't seen it in a whole but they had a rhubarb and custard 3 in 1 shower/shampoo/conditioner. I'm a fan grin

I've been using Child's Farm in the shower since reading that it's good for people with eczema: I don't have eczema, but it's good for my sensitive, dry menopausal skin.
