Cheap Thrills: Yves Rocher Pain d'Epices Shower Gel

I thought I'd follow the post on the bank-breaking Alterna hair masque with something that's sure to be in everyone's price range. Pain d'Epices shower gel is part of Yves Rocher's Jardins de Noel collection, and is inspired by the Scandinavian tradition of gingerbread at Christmas.

My cousin D loves it and gave me a bottle as part of my Christmas gift. It smells delicious and festive thanks to orange, cinnamon and star anise, and produces lots of lather and bubbles without drying my skin out. Seriously, the scent and performance are on the level of a much more expensive shower gel. My only quibble is that the dispenser hole is a little large, which makes the amount of product difficult to control.

But who cares if you squander a little when you're getting so much holiday-scented goodness for so little money?

This shower gel is ridiculously, shockingly cheap. The regular price is $3.50 for a huge 10.1 oz bottle, but now that the holidays are over you can snag it for...get ready...$1.75!
