Product Review: Vitabath Original Spring Green

One of my favorite bath and shower products is Vitabath Original Spring Green Bath and Shower Gelee. This thick, rich shower gel, moisturizes and cleans your skin as it fills the air with the fresh clean scent of botanical extracts and pine. Vitabath was originally developed in 1957 by European specialists of skincare.

I have used Vitabath ever since I can remember. My mother is from France, and she has enjoyed Vitabath for years. Growing up, I remember the many Vitabath products that frequented our bathroom. The air was always filled with the glorious scent of Original Old PackagingVitabath. Today, my own bathroom contains the Vitabath products that I have grown to love since my childhood. Vitabath Bath and Shower Gelee comes in a variety if different scents, however my favorite, is the Original Spring Green. Vitabath claims the gelee gently cleanse with a luxurious, creamy lather. Nutrient rich formulas contain Vitamins A and E and botanical extracts to help soothe and condition skin. This product is amazing. After using it, my skin is always so soft and the fresh scent of the Vitabath Original Spring Green Bath and Shower Gelee lingers on my skin for a long time. I also use this product when it’s time to shave my legs. I rub a small amount of it onto my legs and it acts like a luxurious shaving gel that makes my legs smooth as silk every time. I have noticed that Vitabath has changed the packaging. It looks to be more of a contemporary style, which looks very nice, but I am still partial to the original graphics and font that was used in the original packaging. The simple shape of the bottle remains the same. The bottle doesn’t look like it was changed at all. If it was, the change is so subtle that you can’t even notice it. Vitabath Original Spring Green Bath and Shower Gelee costs about $18.00 for a 10.5 ounce bottle. For me, it’s worth the price. It’s a luxury for me to use this product and it really conditions and moisturizes my skin well. You don’t need to use a large amount of this product to get the desired result. In the shower, a few dabs of the Vitabath will suffice and in the bath, one cap full is all you need. Depending on your individual preferences, you can use more or less. Original New Packaging

I try not to go overboard and use too much of the Vitabath Original Spring Green Bath and Shower Gelee at any one time. This is easy to do, because this product is so luxurious and you tend to want to use more, but if you do, the cost could add up. I love to surprise my mother with her own Vitabath too. When my bottle is just about empty, I know that my mother’s bottle might be empty too so I always get her a new bottle when I get mine.

Vitabath is very mild on my skin. My skin tends to be on the sensitive side and certain products can cause my skin to become dry, irritated and itchy. I never had this experience with Vitabath Bath and Shower Gelee. In fact it’s very soothing to my skin. For me, it always prevents razor burn that can be very irritating somewhat painful.

I highly recommend Vitabath Original Spring Green Bath and Shower Gelee for anyone who wants a luxurious bath and shower gel that produces a rich, moisturizing, creamy lather. The invigorating scent of pine and evergreen smells wonderful. The scent of Vitabath is unique. When you open the bottle, don’t expect the usual shower gel scents of fruit, flowers, or a soapy smell. This is what really takes you by surprise and what adds to it’s charm.

I will continue to use Vitabath as part of my daily routine to keep my skin clean, moisturized and fresh.

Original Spring Green Gelée

What’s the difference between Vitabath® Gelée and the shower gels you find on the shelf in the beauty aisle?  It’s the highly concentrated formula that creates a thick, creamy lather.

Gelée’s Unique Formula

  • Vitabath uses twice the active ingredients that typical body washes use.
  • Because it is so concentrated, you can use less in the shower and make your bottle last longer!
  • It was originally created in 1957 by European skincare specialists who set out to develop an alternative to traditional soap that wouldn’t dry out and irritate the skin.
  • Whereas most body washes are composed of around 70% water, Vitabath® Gelée is fortified with 23 essential ingredients.
  • Gelée has a one-of-a-kind sulfate free, antioxidant rich blend of vitamins, botanicals and a new superfruit complex.
  • It is composed of natural botanicals such as cooling cucumber, calming lavender oils, soothing green tea extracts, aloe vera, mint, and citrus.

How Gelée helps your skin

  • The antioxidant properties, including horse chestnut extract, along with Vitamins B5 and C, sooth and calm skin that is inflamed or irritated.Gelée Family
  • Vitamins A and E provide moisture.
  • Vitamin B3 and sunflower seed oil improve the skin’s conditioning overall.
  • Biotin strengthens the skin.

Luxury of Gelée

  • The rich, thick lather of Gelée soothes and refreshes the skin, allowing for the hectic schedule of the everyday to be punctuated by brief moments of luxury.
  • The four clean, rejuvenating fragrances wash over your senses and leave your skin feeling and smelling amazing all day long.

So now you know what puts the Vita in Vitabath® and you can wash assured that you’re quenching your skin with the best!

Being an avid fan of all things citrus myself, I’ve collected a list of rejuvenating things you can do at home just by gathering citrus essences and some ingenuity.
