SBC Gels New Summer Sensation Watermelon Collection

SBC Watermelon collection


If you love seasonal skincare and beauty then SBC’s new Refreshing Watermelon collection is perfect for the summer months.

It’s no secret that when it comes to value, QVC is your first port of call and a beauty TSV (Today’s Special Value) is always worth a look. Introducing SBC’s brand new Four-Piece Hydrating Summer Sensation Collection  –  including the latest launch – two new Refreshing Watermelon products. SBC formulates all of its product ranges to be soap, silicone, SLS, and Paraben Free. This collection features a convenient, lockable pump dispenser for the whole family to use.

If we’re lucky enough to have a run of warm weather, our skin is the first to cry out for hydration, particularly after time spent time in the sun.

Mine certainly does, but whilst we’re hoping for a repeat of last summer, we can still enjoy using seasonal products to bring that summer vibe to our routine, even if the weather begs to differ.

Did you know, watermelon contains 92% water which naturally hydrates and quenches thirsty skin? Drench yourself in the refreshingly sweet-scented new Watermelon gel and tick all those summer skincare boxes. Use post-shower to refresh and uplift with a burst of hydration.

“A deliciously sweet scent, opening with a refreshing splash of strawberry, grapefruit and watermelon and leading on to mouth-watering mango, redcurrant, cyclamen and lily-of-the-valley. Sweet notes of caramel, soft peach and sandalwood complete the blend” – SBC Gels.

Here’s what’s included in this fabulous new Summer Sensation Collection.

Refreshing Watermelon 2 in 1 Shower Gel & Shampoo 1000ml

I’m all for multi-use products as they save time and money. The ideal travel companion cutting down on all of those extra and sometimes weighty products. This huge 1000ml size means there’s plenty to decant, as necessary.

Thinking about a 2 in 1 product, you may be turned off, or mistaken in thinking you’re using shower gel on your hair. Not so. Convenience without compromise is SBC’s message.

After using this product for several weeks, I can tell you it works equally well for both purposes and I’m enjoying soft manageable hair with each shampoo.

If your concern is itchy and/or flakey scalp then discover SBC’s Scalp Care Duo for healthy hair and scalp.

Refreshing Watermelon Skincare Gel 250ml

SBC’s signature gel formula is blended with glycerin for smoother, youthful-looking skin whilst ensuring moisture is locked in for longer. Packed with free-radical fighting antioxidants and essential fatty acids for plump, bright skin. Use daily for refreshed, hydrated skin straight out of the shower, or apply as necessary to cool the skin when the heat is getting you down. Doubles as a cooling and hydrating mask for face, neck and décolétte. Unlike other gel products I’ve used, with SBC’s skincare formulas, you can be sure you’ll not be left with any sticky residue.

Coconut & Plumeria Shower Melt 500ml

This literally does what its name suggests and melts into the skin for an indulgent and pampering shower experience. Ingredients include Shea butter, Vitamin E and papaya seed oil for silky smooth skin. Pump directly onto hands, or use with a shower puff, as I do, for a plentiful, luxurious lather. Suitable for all skin types and in particular those of us with drier skin, for lasting hydration throughout the day.

Coconut & Plumeria Shimmer Skincare Gel 500ml

Get glowing and enhance your tan or add a subtle glow to your skin whilst smoothing and moisturising with this lightweight Shimmer Skincare Gel. Light-reflecting Mica mineral is blended with coconut oil and Plumeria flower extract for a lasting tropical fragrance. Mica mineral is so finely milled that once applied it leaves a very subtle, almost sheen-like appearance to the skin.

Apply over the entire body or use to highlight chosen areas such as cheekbones, shins or across the chest. I use it all over, particularly when I’ve self-tanned to enhance and improve the appearance of my skin. This tropically scented pair are the perfect partners to complete your sensory shower and body experience!

If you’re unfamiliar with Plumeria, here’s a little about the fragrant blooms…

Plumeria (also known as Frangipani), is a deciduous shrub or small tree found in Thailand, Asia and the Caribbean to name but a few locations. Interestingly, Plumeria flowers are most fragrant at night-time in order to attract sphinx moths to pollinate them. Whilst these flowers don’t produce nectar, the moths are tricked into transferring pollen from one flower to another as their fruitless search for nectar continues.

Plumeria has been used in perfumery since the sixteenth century, usually as a top or heart note. SBC has blended the fragrant extract with coconut for both the Shower Melt and the Shimmer Skincare Gel.

SBC is a favourite brand of mine and often features here on The Beauty Spyglass. If you’d like to discover more about the products I’ve tried, you can find read about SBC Propolis Collection – Perfect for repairing and protecting your skin. Also, a wonderful, healing Arnica Collection – all of which are also available to purchase separately.

    These products sound so perfect for the summer months, watermelon is so refreshing and coconut makes me think of tropical islands! 🙂 I love the sound of the 2 in 1 shower gel and shampoo, like you say, that would be perfect for traveling with. I’ve never heard of an after shower skincare gel, but that actually sounds so perfect! It sounds so cooling and refreshing, and again that would be ideal to take on holiday too. It sounds like these products are packed full of healthy benefits and are so kind to skin, SBC definitely sounds like a brand to look out for! Great review and fab photos Samantha, thanks for sharing! <3 xx

      It really is the perfect summer collection and a great price too. SBC always come up with such lovely, seasonal skincare but this one is going to be hard to beat, especially if you love sweet and tropical scents to your skincare!

      Have a lovely evening Bexa x

    I absolutely love products that smell like coconut and watermelon sounds like it would smell super refreshing too! I must admit you’re right about being turned off of 2in1 products but I the multi-use aspect is super handy and I might just have to try it now!

      I love coconut scented skincare too – Just makes you think of holidays! It’s true, I wouldn’t tend to pick up a 2 in 1 either but this with SBC’s no compromise promise you’re not forgoing quality. Hope you do try it, I’m
      Sure you’d love it! Keep checking QVC as they often have easy pay options available. I’ve used the service many times – no credit or interest, the payments are taken from the card you originally paid with but just split into manageable chunks. What’s not to love?! x

    I’d not heard of this brand before but their products sound lovely! Very intrigued by the scalp care duo, my scalp gets quite dry so I’m always on the lookout for products to help with that x

The scalp care duo is perfect for scalp maintenance or to address flakey/itchy issues! For me, the shampoo is great and really smells of honey. Love to know if you do decide to try it! x
