Advantages: Inexpensive when on offer, good masculine aroma
Disadvantages: Fragrance does not last very long.
===Why I Bought It===
I often get the AVON catalogue and bought some of these shower gels when on offer for 99p.
I never stick to one particular brand or fragrance of shower gel and often just try out different ones when they are on offer - I figure that is the best way of finding one I really like. I do not mind using shower gels supposedly designed for men as I quite like them as a change from flowery feminine ones.
Avon Senses is a range of bath and body products and they are constantly bringing out new ones in the line.
The one I am reviewing is Amazo and aimed at men.
It comes in a 250 ml clear slim plastic bottle with a black lid which has a flip up top.
The gel itself is a thickish clear consistency and is a dark greeny blue colour.
The front label calls it 'Senses for Men' and the image on the label is of a waterfall, lots of trees and of bluey green water.
Contains bergamont, peppermint and sandalwood.
The back has a large label which lists the ingredients and states it should be used within 12 months of opening.
The gel is made in Poland.
The website states - 'Contains Vitamin E and p balanced'. There is no reference to Vitamin E on the bottle though.
£2 full price but often on offer and are now 5 for £5.
The smell of this gel is quite refreshing and sort of ozoney. It as a spicy element and is definitely recognisable as a male fragrance - though I am quite happy to use it. It reminds me of another shower gel sons have been using sometime, possible a Lynx one, but I cannot place it exactly to give it a name.
The bottle does go a long way as you only need one or two squirts of the thick gel - its lathers easily and leaves you skin feeling smooth - but neither moisturised nor taute. Being a nice thick gel you can easily ensure you only use a small amount, as will some runny gels you use more than intended which is wastful.
Once in use I hardly notice any fragrance which is a bit of a disappointment as it is quite a stonge smell when first out of the bottle..
It works well as a basic gel but I can get the same results from the 46p Tesco Baby Bath I have been buying.
If I pay more for a gel it is to get a nice aroma in the bathroom which makes bathing a nicer experience.
This is a nice coloured gel and the fresh invigorating smell when first applied would be good to wake you up in the mornings. It cleans well and rises easily. Quite a good buy when on special offer and nice to see a product aimed at the men for a change.
4 stars - OK as a shower gel, nice fragrance but does not last very long.
===Would I Recommend?===
Yes - a good masculine and invigorating aroma.
Summary: Inexpensive when on offer, good masculine aroma
