“ Brand: Avon / Texture: Cream / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
The 250ml bottle is often on offer as part of a 5 for £5 deal although when it is full price it is £2 or more so I normally stock up when there is a deal. The bottle is easy to handle so does not get dropped in the shower too much. The flip lid is easy to open but still firm enough to make sure that the liquid does not run out when not in use.
The gel is quite watery compared to others in the range, but still lathers up well and there only needs to a few drops to allow a decent array of bubbles on the scrunchie, so I can get plenty of showers out of a bottle.
Seeing the yellow bottle and liquid I assumed it was going to be a lemon scented gel, but it is in fact pineapple that comes though most of all. It lasts well and is a pleasant change as there seems to be so many lemon gels available.
The instructions are very basic, just saying "lather and use" and that is all you have to do - there is no need to try and encourage it to froth up. It states that it is made in Poland although there are other countries named and these are probably the places where the ingredients come from. The warning to keep away from eyes is a good one as it does sting at first if you get some in your eye, but flushing with a bit of warm water soon stops that.
I will buy Beach Party again and if the offers stop I would pay full price as I think it is well worth the couple of pounds it costs.
The Product ~ 'The Five Senses'
The 250ml plastic bottle is adorned in a cheerful dazzling label showing a sunset scene of glistening ocean waters in some far off pacific island with palm trees and lighted fireworks with pink and orange bubbles exploding into the air! Thus, this well designed exhilarating label's display is set to furnish the consumer's imagination to envisage a zesty moisturizing shower gel that is an up-lifting experience to use! The only usage advice given on the reverse of the product is to 'lather and rinse'! The product notes all relevant information in fifteen languages. The shower gel has a shelf life of twelve months but these types of products barely last me a month due to the enthusiastic help from my grand-tots!
One of the symbols on the back labeling of the product shows an eye with a 'X' on, obviously indicating that the gel should be avoided with eye contact...I concur! I have experienced the lather getting in my eye and wow does it sting! Standing head faced towards a powerful jet stream of water from the shower soon provided relief, though my eye did feel fairly uncomfortable for a while after. The gel has pleasant shades of a golden yellow and orange combination with various sized bubbles that is the 'bead burst' component in the 'fun and enticing' shower gel. The gel contains Cocamide MEA which is acquired from fatty acids from the oil of coconuts. It is no doubt due to its blanched yellow to amber liquid that furnishes the gel with its attractive colour along with the foaming capacity.
My Usage Experience ~ "Take Leave Of One's Senses"
1) The flick open lid actually takes a little prizing open initially. To avoid the difficulty in releasing the fastener each time I use the product, I tend to leave the lid open, though this has at times resulted in the fluid running free when the grand-tots have rummaged around in my bath box of goodies and accidently tipped it over! The aroma of the concentrated fluid oozes out immediately. The scent is absolutely gorgeous the product contains Cinnamal, which is an oily yellow liquid that furnishes cinnamon with its spice. Cinnamal is actually a naturally materializing fragrance compound that is located in the barks of the cinnamon trees. As in this case, Cinnamal is also synthetically produced. But cinnamon isn't the enveloping perfume I notice overall. Instead, the bouquet is a wonderful combination of orange, tangerine and Satsuma fruity notes, combined with the Acacia Farnesiana Flower with balsamic orange blossom and citrus infusions of exotic spicy base notes.
2) As I pour out the dense jelly like fluid, the scent extracts waft out having a captivating effect on my senses. As with popular colours, aromas can have a truly elevating response on the emotions; this one is no different for me, I found my spirits lifted and elated!
3) I tend to use around a 50p sized portion for each section I'm focusing on in washing. This amount of the gel is enough as it lathers up bountifully. The fluid spreads out like an amber malleable and congealed solution. At the point of water contact and buffering up with a sponge, the gel produces copious amounts of bubbles that feel nothing less than luxurious on my skin.
4) As I continue to cleanse my neck, torso, arms and legs in this syrup like perfumed nectar, my skin feels softened and clean. The substance rinses off easily leaving huge voluptuous bubbles at my feet and ankles. The after effects are appealing. As I towel dry, the fragrance of the gel is still very noticeable. As for my skin, it is left feeling very clean, smooth and supple; the moisturizing results are excellent for a shower gel!
Would I recommend ~ 'Appeal To The Senses'
Yes, I certainly would! This is an affordable cleansing product that ticks all the boxes for me. The gel cleanses, moisturizes and smells like an expensive quality body spray. My skin is left feeling satiny soft for a long while after showering. I haven't seen this product in the last couple of campaign brochures from my Avon rep but it is available online through such sites as EBay for as low as 50p, whereas I purchased the Avon Senses bead burst shower gel for around £2.50! But, at either price, it remains a bargain for me due to its distinctive essence and high caliber features.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review xXx
I have mentioned before in reviews, that I have fairly sensitive skin and so I don't tend to go for shower gels, and rather stick to goold old dove sensitve soap and water. However, every so often I get some Avon gifts given to me by a relative and I always like to give them at least a try, and so far, none of them have irritated my skin, and have been good at cleansing and leaving my skin feeling clean and smelling lovely.
Not long ago I was given this 'Beach Party' shower gel bottle produced by Avon and it was one of their range of shower gels that I had previously never tried before. This 250 ml is usually around the £2 mark although very often Avon have great offers on their shower gels such as 3 for £3, so it is worth looking out for some deals.
This particular shower gel is an orangey yellow colour. It has a clear bottle allowing the colour of the gel to shower through, with a corresponding lid to match the colour. On the front is a picture of some tropical beach with some party crackers about to set off. On the front it states that this is a 'fun and enticing' shower gel. I'm not entirely convined by the word 'enticing' as I think it sounds better when referring to food but nonetheless, the picture at the front is certainly eye catching and the colours appeal - particularly coming into the warmer Spring and Summer months.
This shower gel claims to come with a 'bead burst' which I assume is meant to gently exfoliate and cleanse the skin, although there is no information on the back of the bottle to inform you.
As soon as you open the cap of the shower gel, you can immediately smell a rather sweet pineapple/citrus smell that is very pleasant. It is not sickly sweet either but jsut very pleasant and makes you think of summer holidays. The product is easy to apply and lathers up well on your skin. I have found that the smell does linger for a little while on my skin afterwards. In relation to the bead burst, I cannot say that I have notice any difference between this shower gel and any of the other avon shower gels that I have previously used which did not have this added bead burst feature, and so had it not been for the claim on the front of the bottle, I wouldn't even have noticed any of the little beads within the gel as it is applied.
Despite using this shower gel to cleanse, I still use soap as well to ensure I am thoroughly clean, as I have foudn from past experience some shower gels do lather up well and leave a lovely scent on your skin, but I don't feel they have properly cleaned my skin.
This shower gel has a lovely aroma and really does make you think of the beach and the sunshine, however in terms of the bead burst I can't say I have noticed any difference with the added beads in this shower gel, thye either need to put some more in, or change their formula so you actually notice them making a difference. I have to acknowledge though that it does leave my skin feeling smooth and smelling nice, but other than that I think it is just an average shower gel. I wouldn't want to rely heavily on it in hot weather though when you are sweating more and want to ensure you are smelling really clean and fresh. I didn't buy this product and I really don't think I would buy it myself if I ever got the chance as there are simply better shower gels out there.
Lets have a beach party with Avon Senses shower gel!!
I have just written a review on a shower gel from Avon, which was called 'waterbabe' and was from a range they bought out last summer, a collection of summery type shower gels in the Senses range. Well, this shower gel is from that same summer range.
Like the 'waterbabe' shower gel this one only cost me 99p, normal brochure price, which is a fantastic bargain. There is 250ml in the bottle which lasts my family about two weeks time. The bottle is shown in the picture provided by dooyoo. It is a sort of yellowy, lime green sort of colour and there is a picture of a sunset over the ocean on it.
It is a really summery sort of bottle design which reminds me of being on holiday abroad somewhere (we don't get enough sun here for that picture to be Britain!!).
The fragrance to this shower gel is very energising. It is quite zesty and sort of fruity in a way, it is certainly a 'fun and energising' shower gel which is how Avon describes it.
It is just like all the other Senses shower gels as it leaves you feeling cleaned and refreshed after using it in the shower or bath.
I found this in the bathroom the other day, I order that much stuff from Avon that I forget what I've brought and have got bottles and bottles of shower gel that have never ever been opened.
Beach Party is from the Senses range and is scented with pineapple and watermelon, but to be honest the only one of them I can smell is the pineapple even though the gel has got a nice fruity smell under the pineapple.
It's a very thin shower gel and I couldn't get it to lather up as good as other Avon shower gels, a load of it slipped off my shower scrunchie and that did my head in because I hate wasting stuff like this.
Beach Party made me feel very clean but it doesn't moisturise my skin at all, I deffo had to use body lotion after my shower because my skin felt a bit tight after I'd dried myself. I love how well the pineapple smell stays after I'm dry, it's a lovely sweet smell that will last on my skin for about an hour and then fade to nothing quite quick. That suits me because it means it doesn't interfere with my perfume too much.
I do like this as a shower gel but really the best thing about it is the yummy pineapple smell. Like I said it cleans well but you have to use quite a bit because of how thin the gel is, it costs about £1.99 a bottle and that's not bad value but there are better shower gels in the Avon book I reckon.
I recently decided to buy a good few shower gels from the Avon senses range basically due to them being only 99p each. The beach party shower gel was the second variety that I tried. After initially thinking that the waterbabe scent was rather masculine I was hoping that this one would have a much nicer smell. I was right.
The first thing that I thought when opening the bottle was "I have smelled something like this before" the smell was so fruity and almost mouth watering, it was delicious. The front of the clear plastic bottle advises that this scent is fun and enticing and it definitely is. The gel lathers very well and is nice to use.
Every time I used this gel I had the same feeling of smelling this before, I knew it reminded me of something but I just couldn't put my finger on what. Then one day it came to me, the shower gel had a strong resemblance to fruit salad chews that I used to have as a kid. The pineapple and watermelon present in the scent is so fruity.
I would say the senses range is basically designed to be a budget range, however it does do the job that intended at a good price. I am a big fan of the beach party gel and I consider it to be a pleasure to use will definitely be buying this again.
Avon have recently introduced some new shower gels to their Senses range to form a small summer collection, designed to give excellent cleansing and wonderfully summery scents.
The Beach Party shower gel is absolutely fantastic. I am a fan of the Senses range in general but this one is the very best I have come across so far.
Upon opening the bottle you'll instantly fall in love with the fragrance - well, providing you adore fruity citrus smelling shower gels that is! I happen to love them so the shower gel is perfect for me; it has a wonderful blend of fruity aromas that mingle together to create a sweet, zesty and very invigorating cleanser.
The gel itself is of adequate thickness not to slither off my sponge, but not so thick that it takes an age to coerce into any kind of lather. The lather produced is very good, perhaps not quite as thick as Imperial Leather or Dove shower gels but it seems to be much more luxuriant somehow than other shower gels in the Senses range.
I find Beach Party to be very cleansing and in the two weeks that I have been using it I haven't had any kind of skin reaction from it. Quite the reverse actually as this shower gel seems to soften and refresh my skin, which is unusual for any of the Avon shower gels in my opinion as they do tend to be rather drying.
Unfortunately the glorious fruity fragrance only lingers on my skin for a few minutes after drying myself and I think this is a real shame as it would possibly be mistaken for a nice perfume otherwise, such is the deliciousness of the aroma both before and during showering.
I only paid 99p for my bottle of Senses Beach Party as it was on a special introductory offer at the time, this is excellent value for money as I believe the normal price is £2. I would still be happy to pay the full price for this one though as it does the job extremely well and smells divine.
Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I work as an Avon representative when my poor health allows, mostly as a hobby, although I do love to earn a couple of pounds for my pocket at the same time!
I am a fan of many Avon products from most of their different ranges, and have been over a number of years. One Avon range in particular that appeals to me is the 'Avon Senses' range, and I am always on the look-out for new products and special offers within this range.
The Senses range covers a variety of products such as liquid soap and shower gel. I like how Avon have produced many of these shower gels with a liquid soap available to buy in the same scent, so that I can choose to use matching products if I prefer.
Within the Senses range there have recently been a few additional shower gels added into the mix, although unfortunately these new scented shower gels have not yet had soaps produced to match their scents. Said new shower gels are part of the 'Senses summer collection' and I therefore wonder whether they will be available to buy long term or whether they are simply one of Avon's passing phases. It would be a bit of a shame if the latter were true because I have tried a few of the new shower gels and am quite impressed.
The shower gel I am using at the moment is called 'Beach Party' and I got it on offer in a recent brochure for the sum of 99 pence. Considering this price is for a 250ml bottle, I thought it offered quite good value for money.
Supplied in a plastic bottle with a plastic cap on top, the picture on the label to the front of the bottle shows a rather idyllic scene - lots of sunsets and palm trees. The label also says 'fun and enticing shower gel' under the 'Beach party' name.
The first couple of times I used this shower gel I was quite bowled over by the delicious scent. Not quite able to put my finger on exactly what scent it was, I could only have described it as being quite a 'fruity' scent with a definite hint of citrus to it.
Now that I have done my research for the purposes of this review, I can see that this shower gel is actually marketed as having hints of 'pineapple and watermelon'. I didn't see this in the brochure at the time when I ordered the shower gel, but no matter... Either way, let me tell you that this fragrance is delicious! Very refreshing and zingy.
I have found that the gel is quite thick in consistency - It is obviously another good quality product from Avon, and I personally prefer thick shower gels. I find there is nothing worse than watery gels that seem to slip right off of my cloth or bath scrunchie before I have even started using the gel!
The gel lathers up quite nicely and I was impressed with the feeling of the gel when using it on my skin. I was also impressed with how it made my skin feel fairly soft when I got out of the shower - not every shower gel achieves this effect, believe me!
I did find that the fragrance from the shower gel didn't last on my skin for any significant period of time after my shower. That said though, this didn't really bother me either way and I wouldn't knock off points because of this.
If you are going somewhere hot on holiday and are looking for a zingy, fruity scented shower gel to take with you then this might well be for you.
The normal price of the shower gel is £2, but there are regular offers within the Senses range, so you might manage to pick this up for a little les.
The Senses shower gels are available to buy from your Avon Representative, or you can purchase online from www.avonshop.co.uk.
I would award this little gem full marks! I did find this was a great addition to the Senses range and I intend to stock up on these shower gels just in case they ARE a temporary addition to the range. I really do NOT want to miss out!
This is another of the new Avon Shower gels that launched a couple of books ago. I think these will only be available for the Summer months (What Summer months?!!) and I think they have breathed new life into the Avon range.
These are part of the Senses range which has Small Shower Gels, Large Shower Gels, Body Scrubs and handwash. These are available in 250ml bottles are on the special offer price of 99p, instead of the £2 rrp price.
The bottle isn't that eye catching. It is a plastic see through Bottle which thickens out in the middle, and is thinner at the bottom and top. The plastic lid is a flip lid, and easy enough to grasp and use the Bottle. There is a stck on label on the front and it has a nice enough picture of a sunset scene and water, probably to indicate the Sea. Since the Bottle is see through you can see the lime/yellow coloured liquid through the bottle.
The Gel is quite thick and a little blob on a Shower Puff goes a long way.
Now to the smell of this. I was expecting a kind of balmy, sandy, sort of Hot Summer Night scent for this, but I was surprised to smell Pineapples. Where did that smell come from? It is a little Cirtus-like, but basically Tropical Pineapples. A nce scent, but I didn't expect that smell from this. The smell lingers on your skin well enough, and I felt nice and refreshed after the Shower.
I will buy this again and especially while it is on offer, but it isn't my favourite new scent in the range.
