Advantages: Nice scent, cheap
Disadvantages: Lack of staying power
I love trying out new perfumes and body sprays and find it hard to resist a bargain, so when I saw Tesco's range of own brand body sprays in my local store priced at just 60 pence per 75ml can, I decided to pick up a couple to try.
One of the fragrances that I chose is this one, which is simply called 'pink'. This is not a deodorant or antiperspirant - it is basically a perfume in spray form which can be used all over the body, but obviously it shouldn't be used near your face. It is described by Tesco as having a combination of delicate citrus and floral notes, which appealed to me as I love floral scents as well as the smell of citrus - this sounded like a very refreshing and summery smell which is why I decided to stock up on three cans of it as I get through a ridiculous amount of body spray, which is why it's good that this is so cheap!
The body spray is not tested on animals which is always a positive in my opinion and the aluminium aerosol can that the spray comes in can be recycled once you've used it all - another positive. The can is a handy size to stick in my handbag for when I need to freshen up and it is very lightweight. It is bright pink and very eye catching - it is obvious from looking at it that it is aimed at females and in my opinion the bright, bold packaging will appeal to a range of ages but mainly teenagers and young women, as it has a funky, young kind of design to it. Although the can is brightly coloured, the branding is very basic with just the Tesco logo and product name written on the front.
On the back of the can it has information on how to use the spray, safety warnings, storage information, a brief description of the scent and carious other information. Unlike most of my other body sprays (which are mainly Impulse) this comes with a plastic lid which when pulled off exposes the spray nozzle - to get the product out I simply press this and the spray comes out in a mist. The spray comes out pretty much in a straight line so it is easy to get it excactly where I want it (eg torso) rather than it going everywhere. I always make sure that I hold the can at arms length when I use this as if I apply it too close to the skin it just leaves a wet patch which drips off of my skin. The spray does not irritate my skin at all and I've had no adverse reactions to it in the few weeks that I have been using it.
I usually apply this before getting dressed, but I have used it several times over clothes when I need to freshen up/want to smell nice and I have had no issues at all with residue/white marks etc. The spray has a very fresh, summery scent which I find quite refreshing and uplifting. It doesn't smell cheap or artificial, although it is obviously not quite as strong as more expensive body sprays - it's strong enough to freshen me up and I like that it is not overpowering - as long as I don't apply too much anyway! The smell is almost excactly as Tesco described - the fresh, floral scent is definitely the dominating smell and the citrus scent which smells lemony is only just noticeable. I think that if it was any stronger though, this would probably smell more like an air freshener rather than body spray!
This is not the most long lasting body spray and the fragrance is almost undetectable after around two hours if I don't re-apply it throughout the day. Despite this, I do reccommend the Tesco Pink body spray - it smells nice and has no nasty chemical undertones, it is very cheap and it does the job in freshening me up and making me smell nice!
