The lynx series is well known as one of the leading brands for males toiletries. They have a wide range of products, ranging from de-odorant, shower gel, aftershave and now shampoo, shaving foam and hair wax. It certainly helped me in my teenage years, coming into the store, a recognisable, and cheep brand name hit me, and I have been loyal, on and off to them.
This product is of the shower gel variety. Also lynx come up with a range of fragrances, all different smelling, and adds a bit of changes to the range. My choice was ‘Atlantis’, one of my favourite fragrances, but there is a wide range, so experiment, most stores have testers. The shower gel come advertising a ‘invigorating masculine fragrance and a conditioning formula that does not dry your skin out’ Sounds good, but does it live up to its billing. I find it very useful, for my morning shower I use it for a general wash, but also as a good shampoo. I also found that it does not dry my skin out, but certainly there will be better products for those with sensitive skin out there. If it does get in your eyes, it will sting (Believe me it does!), but rinse well with warm water and it will come out. Main ingredients – Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Parfum, Sodium Chloride, Methanol, lots more chemicals. Personally I have never had any reactions, but do not know if any people can be affected by this. It is all made by Faberge Paris, so the quality must be there, but to be honest it is all chemicals made in a lab that make it so attractive. Still, I wont complain, it still smells great.
The lynx band name is very distinctive. The black box is famous, no special promotion, just an all black container with the word ‘lynx’ written is futuristic silver text. There are several different varieties of lynx, each with their own distinctive smell and coloured pattern on top o
f the container. The shape is a bit harder to describe, it is sort of a concave cylinder, it is squeezable, great for getting the last out, and easy to hold in the shower, again doing its job while looking great. The Atlantis comes with a blue and white coloured stripes. Very stylish, but simple and instantly recognisable, that is what I would like in any product package.
As far as I know, the shower gel can only be brought in 250 mm size bottles. I find this again the perfect amount, it lasts for long enough while not being too bulky to hold and move around. It stores easily, stands up by itself and fits easily into any shower. Again itg is hard to find fault with this, they have got the right amount, and for me it is perfect
All the lynx varieties come with a distinct smell of their own. Hard to describe exactly how it smells, I am not the expert on testing, and this is just my first opinion in this category, so be gentle with me! All I can say that the lynx titles are well named, they generally do smell like they sound (if this makes any sense at all). The Atlantis version smells very fresh, watery and like the sea. It is very cool and refreshing. It smells of good quality and is generally pretty good. It covers any unpleasant smells easily, whilst not being too overpowering.
A great selling point of all the lynx series is the price. It is not set universally, so can vary considerably between differed stores. I got mine for £1.59 in Superdrug, but just in Exeter it is sold in lots of shops, and can vary between £1 - £4, so shop around for the best deal. I think it is well worth it, the product is quality, for a relatively cheap price. You are getting a big name brand, not some store specialty, and I think the smell is as good as some much more expensive brands. Great value.
As far as I am concerned the lynx series is great, all I could r
eally want from a shower gel. Where to start then, it comes at a great price, cheeps compared to other big brands, the smell is classy without being overpowering. The lynx brand is a big company name, so you know you are going to get quality for your money. The container lasts for a long time, and it is effective at what it does, while adding a little extra.
Very little, as there is so much variety pretty much anyone can find one that they and their partner enjoy. Me personally I can’t stand the Oriental fragrance, but there are several others, so I just avoid them. One minor complaint , is the gel does not foam brilliantly, and if you use it as bubble bath then you do get very little bubbles. Very little, though, for me the pros far outweigh the cons.
THE BOTTOM LINE: On the product I have had no problems, it always comes up tops over other more expensive brands, for its price and quality combined with a good name and good product.
