~Amazon Shower Gel~
This shower gel is part of the Senses range that Avon offer. It is aimed at men though can be used by the ladies too. This shower gel contains Vitamin E to allow skin to be left soft and moisturised. It is also pH balanced. Avon describe the scent of this shower gel as 'invogorating' and 'spicy'.
As with the other Senses shower gels, this one is presented in a tall, slim bottle which is made from clear plastic. The bottle features a green, flip top cap and a label illustrating a rather tranquil, green setting. The bottle is practical and fit for purpose.
~Price and Availability~
Amazon Shower Gel is available through your Avon rep and from www.avonshop.co.uk. A 250ml bottle retails at £2.00 and is currently part of a '4 for £5.00' offer. A 750ml bonus size bottle is also available at the moment and is priced at £2.00 (reduced from £4.00).
Whilst I own lots of girly shower gels, I occasionally take a shine to my fiances manly shower gels (Lynx, Dove etc). Not long ago, I ordered him a bottle of Amazon Shower Gel whilst placing an Avon order. At the time, I believe I paid just £1.00 for the 250ml bottle. My fiance isn't fussy about expensive shower gels so I normally just buy whatever is on offer for him. He doesn't have expensive tastes like me!
This shower gel will definitely appeal more to men than woman based on appearance alone. The shower gel itself is a rich green colour. You certainly wouldn't miss this bottle if it was on a shop shelf. My fiance likes this shower gel as it cleans him perfectly well and leaves his skin refreshed and smelling nice. I quite like it too even though it wouldn't be my first choice for an everyday shower gel.
The shower gel is thick and gloopy. It lathers up well when applied directly to damp skin (my fiances method) and even better when poured onto a body puff (because I am a girl and my fiance won't entertain a body puff - lol). The lather created is just nice. It isn't a luxurious, rich lather but it does feel lightweight, creamy and soft against my skin. It is nicely cleansing and it rinses well from my skin leaving no residue.
This shower gel does have a pleasant scent. Obviously it is scented with men in mind as it is quite a strong but not overpowering fresh, earthy and woody scent with a delicate spicy undertone. I find that whilst it does verge on being more man-friendly, it isn't too far off being unisex in my opinion. I quite like this type of scent and find that it makes a change from my usual floral or sweet scented shower gels. It is a very fresh and rather uplifting aroma which is pleasant to use during an early morning shower.
After drying off, I have been pleased by how this shower gel has performed. My skin feels very clean and refreshed. A very subtle scent is left on my skin but I don't have anyone asking me why I smell like a dude! I find that the scent is a little stronger on my fiance. I assume that this is down to him applying it to 'hairy' areas including his chest and arms. This shower gel is very gentle and hasn't irriated my sensitive skin. It actually leaves my skin feeling quite soft but still in need of a body lotion/butter as my skin is very dry.
I favour this shower gel as a change from my girly scented shower gels. It is pleasant to use and I quite like the smell. I find that it works a treat at leaving my skin (and my fiances) smelling very fresh. A little goes a long way and when on offer, this makes this shower gel a value for money purchase.
Overall I can recommend this. I wouldn't go buy it for myself but I would buy it again for my fiance and perhaps use it occasionally.
Thanks for reading :)
