I received a new Shower & Bath gel from Juara and I was so excited to try it, I rushed upstairs to take a shower as soon as it arrived. I'm a dork that way. As I was getting undressed in the bathroom, the hot water from the shower starting to steam the edges of the mirror over the sink, there was a knock at the door.
I call out "hello" in a startled and concerned voice. The answer was from a voice that was not familiar. In a very plain and matter of fact tone to the voice, it says, "Delivery".
Of course you can imagine, I'm pretty vulnerable. I'm in a bathroom, undressed and some strange voice claiming to make a "delivery" at my bathroom door. I grab the only weapon I can find, a pair of eyebrow trimming scissors and try to sound as confident as I can, when I ask, "What do you mean, 'delivery'? And who the heck are you?" Of course I'm wishing that our one million cordless phones actually worked and was sitting on the charger stand in the bathroom, but as usual it's probably under the bed with the battery fully drained. The voice starts to sound a bit more familiar as I can hear a bit of amusement in the tone of the voice when it says, "I have a flower delivery for you ma'am." Now I finally recognize the voice as the bottle of Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel that arrived this afternoon. Of course! I left it on the kitchen counter and forgot it when I rushed upstairs to take a shower with it. Silly me. I was so busy whispering sweet nothings to it, telling it what things I planned to do with it when I got it alone in the shower that I inadvertently left it on the counter. I swear if my head wasn't attached to my body I would probably forget it somewhere!
I drape a towel around me and open the door. As soon as I do the bottle of Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel showers me in a million and one flower petals of Tiare, Jasmine and Gardenia. When all is said and done I'm thinking that a million and one petals isn't all that much because the scent isn't as overpowering as I would have assumed from a shower gel that is labeled as "Tiare Jasmine Tea". It's actually quite delicate if you really want to know. A stunning and fresh white floral scent with light notes of jasmine and gardenia. Normally both of those flowers can give off a quite heady and thick scent, but somehow the tiare (which is a member of the gardenia family) and the tea aspect of the jasmine tea in the name of the product are light and airy and well...like bathing in flower petals rather than having a bucket of perfume oil dumped on you.
Of course one wonders that with a shower GEL that the moisture level isn't going to be as great, but I must say that the Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel, which is free of artificial colorants, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates, is delightfully kind to the skin. It foams up very nicely when using my shower pouf. As soon as the suds start to explode on the pouf the scent of fresh jasmine tea leaves on the hills of Indonesia envelop your senses. I am transported to the tea plantations of Indonesia and showered in a million and one flower petals all over again. Of course the workers are quite shocked because there is a naked woman standing on the hill in the middle of the tea leaves, but whatever...I'm sure they have seen stranger things.

The Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel is soothing and contains antioxidant rich white, black, and green teas, natural cleansers, and softening moisturizing agents to cleanse my skin, leaving it supple and silky and never taut and dry. According to Juara, the triple-tea extracts of Green, White and Black teas soothe and calm skin stressed by sun exposure and environmental aggression. Since I never really go outside, I'm going to say that my skin felt calmed by the "environmental aggression" I have experienced.
Do you need this? YES! I mean you may not be transported to the tea plantations of Indonesia, nor will the bottle speak to you and dump a million and one flower petals on you, but you might just fall in love with the intoxicating and fresh clean scent. If you're smart and stop taking your meds, like I did, the bottle will talk to you and you will reap all the benefits I did by using this Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel.
The Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel retails for $28 USD for a 12 oz bottle. Juara also offers a body milk, which I have yet to try, but my friend Kelly over at Gouldylox Reviews has, and she loves it! You can purchase directly from the Juara website or from skinstore.com
What say you? Ready to bathe in a million and one flower petals?
