The summer can leave you feeling sticky and dirty. A cool shower with a foamy shower gel will have you clean and fresh in no time.

Galenic Toning Shower Gel (200ml/HK$115)

If you like fresh, foresty smells, this green gel is perfect for you. It refreshes and soothes the mind and body, cleansing your skin thoroughly and helping retain moisture.

The Body Shop White Musk Shower Gel (250ml/HK$85)

A pleasant, non-drying daily shower gel. Good consistency and lathers well. If you like the Body Shop's White Musk scent, it's a good choice.

Bioscreen Energising Fresh Shower Gel (200ml/HK$45)

With a zingy scent that will make you feel like you're bathing in grapefruit juice, this shower gel will wake up your body and mind. But it's not particularly foamy, and the scent washes away with the suds.

Fancl Clear Body Shampoo (150ml/HK$85)

This body shampoo leaves a sweet, refreshing scent on your skin. The gentle foam smoothes and moisturises your whole body. Use it with a body puff to remove dead skin.

Anna Sui Body Shampoo (250ml/HK$125)

The best part of this is the fragrance - a light, floral scent that stays with you for hours after the shower. And then there's the bottle, which might just be purple plastic but it looks ever so sweet.

Benefit Bathina Gettin' Steamy (480ml/HK$260)

The rich, hydrating shower gel has a sweet, pleasant peach smell which makes showering that bit more enjoyable. A bean-sized amount creates loads of lather. It may be pricey, but the huge bottle will last for ages.
