This NSFW review of Original Source's Mint And Tea Tree shower gel will make your eyes water!

Come one, who else has had a terrifying encounter with Original Source's Mint And Tea Tree shower gel!

A Facebook post has gone viral after a woman shared her VERY uncomfortable encounter with Original Source's Mint And Tea Tree shower gel (anyone who's ever used this product themself will know where this is going!).

The post, which started: "Um, Original Source… can we talk?" went on to describe how Kathryn - who runs the Facebook page I Know, I Need To Stop Talking - had innocently lathered herself up with the Mint And Tea Tree gel in the shower that morning.

But then, it all went horribly wrong. In fact, in her words: "Oh. Dear. God. MY VAGINA WAS ABLAZE"

Yes - that's A LOT! But it gets so much worse...

Kathryn went on: "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. MY FLAPS WERE ON FUCKING FIRE."

Kathryn's post has now been liked an amazing 200k times, and received over 100k comments - many from other people who have found themselves in simliarly uncomfortable situations.

One commenter, Matthew Skinner, shared: "Deffo should come with a disclaimer. It's just as horrific on your balls. Especially at winter time when you get out of the shower and the cold air makes the menthol twice as strong. Literally goodness gracious great balls of fire , no word of a lie."

Another Bree Carstens added: "I have also made this error. It is not one I will make again. And all their other beautiful cruelty free products, for the record, are absolutely top notch."

While Carol Ryan decided to use the information to her own advantage, saying: "Thank you for the information... I'm going to leave a bottle of this green firestarter in the bathroom for those here who never bother to buy their own shower gel because they'd rather just use mine..."
