    I don`t see any positive aspects in solid shower gel. I think it is not very convenient to use it.

  2. Uma 19 September 2014 :

    I can`t agree with you because solid shower gel is a really nice idea especially for those who like to travel. You can take with you and not be afraid that it will spill in your bag.

    All these factors are really considerable but I doubt as for its cleansing properties. I think it gives nothing but pleasant aroma.
