New Product Alert: Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Shower Gels

Who else remembers the vintage Zest “Fully Clean” shower commercials of towel-clad people happily jumping out of the shower and fully displaying a towel with the words “Zestfully clean” on it? We are not ashamed to say we did the Zestfully Clean pose on more than one occasion after showering while we were growing up, all thanks to the very catchy jingle. The brand has come a long way since then but the classic slogan, wonderful scents, and clean feeling still remains. We hadn’t used this childhood staple in a while but we’re back to being “zestfully clean”, moisturized, and possibly recreating that vintage commercial, thanks to their new Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Shower Gels.

It’s bright, innovative packaging is the first of its kind in the body wash category and every 10 oz tube provides up to 40 showers with lots of lather and fragrance (if you like to indulge in a bit more gel like we do, then it’ll be less), making each quarter size-application go a long, long way for superior performance and value.

The five scents of the Zest Fruitboost Revitalizing Shower Gels include:

  1. Fruitboost Pomegranate Acai Berry – Juicy pomegranate and luscious acai berries mingle with pulpy red fruits of plum and raspberry that are wrapped in warm woods and creamy musks.
