- Good quality shower 🚿 gel £5-£15 range…
I’ve given up gel because of the plastic, gone back to soap
Which arrives wrapped in non reusable, non recyclable plastic film and or plastic coated paper?
OP, the other source gels are pretty good in terms of range, the scents of the coconut and raspberry flavours do last a while which is slightly annoying as I rather like the smell, just not smelling of them.
Smelling of not-dainty things really tends to suggest you’ve squaddie showered, and are covering over a dirty smell instead. Shower gel should smell nice when you use it and dissipate quickly leaving you smelling clean. For a lasting smell use unfragranced soap which smells soapy and clean.Posted 1 week agofatmaxSubscriber
I tried this and liked it, for a fiver – https://www.marksandspencer.com/hair-and-body-wash-200ml/p/p22500760
But I like the idea of nice, modern soaps that can arrive with no/little packaging?Posted 1 week agoHughStewMember
Bulldog do a good range of shower gel, 1/2 litre for £4.50.Posted 1 week ago
I like the ones you get with aftershave sets at Christmas.Posted 1 week ago
They smell really nice and are usually the same price as it would be if you just bought the aftershave on its own. As its ‘going out Friday night’ I’m currently soaping my bits with Dior Savage.
Day to day though… whatever’s a quid.
You can buy soaps without packaging, for example:
Right hand side of page are more varieties, you need to scroll through.

The only time ive ever bought shower gel that was in that budget it came on prescription!
And I object to paying £8.80 for a piddly 120ml bottle that lasts about 4 washes as it has to be put on dry 20min before a shower. Tried to source the same stuff from the vets…….Posted 1 week agoiain1775Subscriber
I work away and stay in hotels a lot so just ‘borrow’ whatever from their bathrooms, had quite a few nice smelling ones over the years but couldn’t tell you what they were, they also cost between £50-185 for a very small single wash bottle so well above your budget
These days more hotels are also moving to dispensers bolted to the bathroom wall rather than giving away small plastic bottles which I guess is good for the environment and cheaper for them but it’s really screwing up my morning schedule when I have to mess around decanting them into my own bottle with a combination of funnels and straws
My recommendation is therefore to steal the little bars of soap insteadPosted 1 week agocheddarchallengedSubscriber
I use Molton Brown which at £15 or so for 300ml might sound a bit over the top.
But – it’s such a good liquid soap – quite thick (I shave with it as well) that only a tiny amount is required for each shower. A bottle will easily last 4-5 months in which time I’d have spent more on runny equivalents like radox – and generated more plastic waste as a result.Posted 1 week agokerleyMember

This – we buy our shampoo and shower gel in 5l from faith in nature and just refill glass bottles in bathroom. Also doesn’t have nasty stuff in it.Posted 1 week ago

kerley – excellent! Out of interest, once it’s been opened is there a time limit on when it should be used by and does it deteriorate at all? How long does 5 litres last you? Thanks!Posted 1 week agokerleyMember

Don’t know if there is a recommended time limit but it lasts well over a year stored in a cupboard in the garage and seems as good as when new. We buy shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in 5L.Posted 1 week ago

Thank you kerley and definitely sounds worth considering especially if it can be stored in a garage.
Pure Castile soap with essential oils at a reasonable price
I love Dr Bronner’s products and they’re cheaper to buy from Dolphinfitness, linked to on one of my earlier posts. Loads of handy tips including usage cheat sheets from a member of the Bronner family:Posted 1 week ago
