~Senses Shower Gel~
The Senses collection from Avon includes shower gels and hand washes in a range of scents aimed at men and women.
Tropics Shower Gel is described as being a 'stimulating and exotic' shower gel. Avon claim that the Tropics scent is perfect for Summer time use as it will lift your senses. The shower gel is presented in a curvy plastic bottle with a flip top cap. The front label is adorned with an image of a sunset and palm trees. The bottle is clear which allows the transparent, yellow shower gel to be visible. This shower gel has a 12month shelf life and the bottle can be recycled.
~Price and Availability~
This shower gel can be purchased from the Avon website (www.avonshop.co.uk) or from your rep. It is available in three sizes :
*250ml - £2.00
*500ml - £3.00
*750ml - £4.00
If you are looking to purchase this shower gel just now, each size is currently half price on the website.
I am a fan of the Senses range from Avon. I tend to stock up when the shower gels are reduced and during my last order, I ordered a 250ml bottle of Tropics Shower Gel for just £1.00. This is a fair price to pay for a pleasant, everyday sort of shower gel. I have tried quite a number of the available scents and am rarely disappointed. The bottle is quite nice and stands out in my bathroom.
As I shower once or twice a day, I go through a lot of shower gels. I have my 'special' showers gels for using in the evening when I want a little bit of pampering. This Tropics Shower Gel was purchased for morning us and is suitable for the whole family in my opinion. The gel itself is very thick and gloopy to the extent where it is sometimes a little difficult to encourage a blob out the bottle! I always like to get the most out of a little bit of shower gel so always use a body puff to apply it to my damp skin.
Tropics carries a lovely scent which is very uplifting and quite strong but not overpowering. I would say it is a gender neutral scent as my fiance is happy to use this if he is running low on his own shower gel. A small blob of shower gel goes a long way and creates a rich, soft lather which is plentiful and gentle on my sensitive skin. The scent is gorgeous and fills the bathroom as I use it. It is definitely an exotic wake up call - very zingy, fruity and deliciously sweet without being sickly or synthetic. It has a soapy undertone.
The lather rinses effortlessly and once I have dried off, my skin feels refreshed and cleansed which is of course the essential part of using any shower gel. This shower gel does not dry my skin out. I wouldn't go as far as to say that it moisturises my skin but it does soften it a little. The scent doesn't linger on my skin for long so it would be ideal if they introduced a matching body lotion to enhance it a little as it is lovely.
This is a decent quality shower gel from Avon. It does what I want and expect it to do - cleanses my skin whilst showering. It is very long lasting as you do not need much to perform so works out value for money. It is the perfect, fresh shower gel to use each morning and the lovely Summery scent reminds me of holidays abroad.
I cannot really fault this shower gel so highly recommend it.
Thanks for reading :)
