Disadvantages: Smell does not last
---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.
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 Tropics (as in the image above).
It comes in a 250 ml clear slim plastic bottle with an lime green lid which has a flip up top.
The gel itself is a thickish clear consistency and is a lemony lime colour.
The front label calls it a 'stimulating and exotic shower gel' and the image on the label is of a green/yellow sky with palm fronds and a small beach hut and the sun filtering through.
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 - 'An exotic summer fragrance that will lift your senses and boost your inner smile every time you shower.'
£2 full price but currently selling for half price.
This gel also comes in a Bonus size of 500 mls with its full price at £3 but also half price and a 750 mls bottle full price £4 but also now at half price.
The smell of this gel is quite refreshing and sort of fruity - a bit of a mango and lemony lime sort of smell. However it does not have a strong fragrance at all.
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.
It is a shower gel but I also use it in the bath and it makes lots of bubbles.
Once in use I hardly notice any fragrance which is a disappointment.
It works well as a basic gel but I can get the same results from the 11p 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 - and this seems to be lacking - for me anyway.
It isn't too feminine so can be used by men as well.
It is ok if you can buy it on offer but I would not want to be paying full price.
4 stars - OK as a shower gel but not much of a fragrance.
---Would I Recommend?---
Not really - but I do know lots of people who buy this all the time.
Summary: Inexpensive gel when on offer - cleans well.
