You see a picture of Mint Source shower gel and you know where I'm going, don't you lads. You know exactly what that green bottle implies, what it triggers.

Overall, it's your bog standard shower gel. Smells nice, looks nice, certainly feels nice. That is, until you put it on your business.

Put a blob of Original Source Mint on your business and you're in for a party. A shower experience you didn't ask for, or deserve, but are forced to endure nonetheless.

For whatever reason - I've never wanted to look into it - this type of gel tingles like fuck. Truly bizarre. A sensation like no other in the shower gel game. The type of tingle you only get when... you know what, nothing compares. I cannot compare the feeling of Mint Source shower gel on your knackers to anything.

But it's not just the lads that are struck down by this phenomenon, but lasses too, judging by this recent Facebook post.

A girl who posts on the page 'I Know, I Need To Stop Talking' shared a very NSFW but hilarious message that has struck a chord with men and women alike.

She writes: "I washed my arms and shaved underneath them. I washed my neck, breasts, stomach and back. Thus far, it had been a positively first class bathing experience.

"And then. AND THEN. Oh. Dear. God. MY VAGINA WAS ABLAZE.

"For a moment, I wasn't entirely sure what had happened. Had I repeated the never to be forgotten error when I managed to apply hair removal cream which was strictly not for front bottoms to my front bottom? Had a stray spark inadvertently set light to my pubic thatch?

"BECAUSE IT FUCKING FELT LIKE IT.

"Yes, Original Source, your innocuous looking green bottle of so called shower gel, it turns out, is an absolute fucking liability.

"I had a quick look at the ingredients list to see if it contained gasoline. It did not.

"There was a warning though. 'KEEP AWAY FROM EYES.' Keep away from eyes? KEEP AWAY FROM EYES? Frankly, my eyes were the least of my problems right now.

"7,929 tingling leaves claimed the front of the bottle. Tingling? TINGLING? This wasn't tingling my minge. It was starting a fucking bush fire down there. (Pun entirely intended. You can thank me later.)"

In a way, if you haven't experienced Mint Source shower gel, I'd consider you lucky. But on the other hand, I reckon it's worth going through.

Good luck.
