Doing Drugstore: Red Water Hydrating Shower Gel with Olive

When Walgreens began carrying European beauty lines, I was thrilled. Sure, I'm always happy to browse the aisles for the old standby brands, but who doesn't like a little bit of Continental cosmetics when they pick up their prescriptions?

One of my favorite products is by Red Water Laboratories, a Greek brand that uses thermal spring water from the birthplace of Alexander the Great. Its Hydrating Shower Gel with Olive ($14) is more expensive than your average Calgon soak, but it provides qualities of premium products at a much smaller price. To find out why this green gel has found a home in my shower,


The olive oil helps moisturize skin, and the fresh, clean scent is refreshing. It's a little outdoorsy, which makes it guy-friendly for those of us who share a bathroom with a man. Plus, the modern packaging reminds me of another Greek brand, Korres, so it looks as good in your shower as it makes you feel. Has anyone else tried this gel? What do you think about Walgreens' foray into international beauty?

I'm going to look for this. I use an olive oil based body lotion and love it.
