“ Brand: Avon / Texture: Cream / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
Because I am an Avon rep I usually get most of my beauty products and bathroom essentials from Avon. I don't get everything from there, because sometimes when I need things urgently I prefer to go to the shop and then I get them on the same day rather than have to wait for this to be delivered. But most of the things I have in my bedroom and bathroom are products I have ordered from Avon.
The Avon Senses range is a range by Avon that has all your shower gels, deodorants and liquid soaps. Last summer they brought out a new range of shower gels which was called the 'summer range'. This 'waterbabe' shower gel was from this new range.
Being an Avon rep has its advantages, like sometimes being able to get things at cheaper prices than the customers. Not all the time, as a lot of people seem to get mistaken, but some times we do have some good discounts and we are able to buy things from a clearance brochure as well, which has some great bargains inside. When I got this shower gel it wasn't in my brochure, so like most things I buy from Avon I had to pay the same price as the customers. But I'm not complaining because this was still only 99p. A great bargain, I thought. There is 250ml in the bottle.
The fragrance of this shower gel is described by Avon as 'fresh and uplifting' and I agree with this point of view because when I showered with this last summer it really did freshen me up and make me feel uplifted. It has a nice light scent to it which isn't at all strong - definitely a good thing, and it freshens and cleans you up perfectly, just as you'd expect it to.
I would recommend this.
Avon senses water babe shower gel is part of there summer collection so has been on offer at just £0.99p in the last few broachers so I thought I would try a bottle.
It comes in a tall blue bottle with a flip top lid, it doesn't have a bung to stop it running out and is very watery in consistency so always make sure you put the lid back on properly.
It has a very refreshing smell to the shower gel although I cant place it as being any thing in particular just fresh and clean so would suit a man or woman, It really is very runny so you do get a lot of waste with it if you are not careful and a bottle doesn't last very long despite there being 250ml of shower gel in it. It lathers up nicely though but doesn't condition or moisturise your skin but does get you nice and clean and leave you feeling refreshed and awake.
The bottle has to be use in 12 months of opening but this didn't last a week in our house so no fear of throwing any away.
A good shower gel but nothing special
I opened a cupboard in the bathroom a few days ago and found loads of bottles of this Waterbabe shower gel in there, it's part of the Senses range from Avon and costs about £2.00 a bottle. I don't know why we've got so many of them, they must have been on special offer but I'd never seen this bottle in the bathroom so thought it was funny mum buying all the same.
I've used it once now though and can see why she loves Waterbabe so much, it smells gorgeous and is lovely and moisturising. It feels like a shower gel that should cost more than it does, I like a lot of the Senses products but this is deffo one of my faves and that's just after a few showers with it.
It looks exactly like the bottle Dooyoo have got for their picture and the shower gel is such a light blue colour that it looks clear when I squeeze it out of the bottle. As soon as I opened the bottle I loved the smell, it's mega fresh and a bit tangy as well. It doesn't smell of the sea but the name Waterbabe suits it brill because it reminds me of going away and relaxing in all the lovely smells of a holiday abroad on the beach.
The shower gel is quite thin but you don't need a lot to get a load of bubbles, the lather is thick enough to wash with and feels nice and soft. I wish there were a few more bubbles but for the price of this I don't think you can moan too much about that!
It cleans good and left my skin feeling mega fresh, the smell lingers a bit after you've dried yourself but not too much and it settles down into a sort of talc smell after a bit. I was surprised at how moisturising the shower gel is because I think a lot of the Senses stuff makes my skin feel a bit dry, with this one it felt soft and smooth and I didn't have to use body lotion after my shower.
I've got loads of bottles of shower gel in the bathroom but have been using Waterbabe non-stop since I discovered it. It's proper girly and leaves my skin clean and fresh, there's nothing to not like about it because it's just brill!
I recently decided to buy a good few shower gels from the Avon senses range basically due to them being only 99p each. I normally like a shower cream rather that a gel but decided to give them a go since I could buy them in bulk.
The bottle is pretty standard it is clear and shows the light blue gel inside. The bottle contains 250ml and has a pretty picture of water on the front. The picture is rather enticing. The back of the bottle contains little information regarding the product but I suppose we don't need to know much more from a shower gel than lather and rinse.
The waterbabe gel is described as being fresh and uplifting and I do feel this when using the gel. Although the gel smells rather strong and smells a tad masculine it does have a hidden fruitier scent of grapefruit. The gel does lather up very well and not a lot is needed for a good clean.
I would say the senses range is basically designed to be a budget range, it has nothing super special about it, however it does do the job that intended at a good price. If you are looking for something luxurious then this isn't for you as it doesn't provided the same benefits such as dove or lux. This is a good value product that I would buy again; I have a few more different varieties to try in this gel so hopefully the scent will be a bit better and a little more feminine.
Overall this is worth a buy; it does the job and is cheap enough.
A friend at work as started doing Avon so she duely gave me a catalogue and it was the shower gels that caught my eye.
I found it hard to decide which ones to go for, as nowhere could I see in the brochure what the scent would be.
Water babe was described as being fresh and uplifting so I thought I'd give that a go.
It comes in a 250ml clear plastic bottle, which is recyclable. The lid is a pale blue plastic flip top, which I find, doesn't reclose very well. The contents of the gel are a clear blue colour and is quite thick in consistency.
Looking at the ingredients I'm still none the wiser as to what 'flavour' it is. Ok it's down to the nose test, being careful not to squirt it up there!! It has a citrus smell to it, a nice refreshing one but that's about it.
So I've had to do some more research and I've gone to Avon's website where it tells me that it is water lily and grapefruit. I've no idea what water lily smells of but yes the grapefruit is definitely there.
As far as shower gels go its great. It lathers up OK, not as well as the creams but it left my skin clean and I enjoyed the refreshing smell.
At the moment this cost just £1, which I think, is good value for money. There are lots of other scents to try but I would like to get this one again.
I am a big fan of Avon Senses Shower Gel so when I saw their new summer range I bought a bottle of each to try. I've enjoyed using all of them, with Beach Party being my ultimate favourite - until now!
This Water Babe Shower Gel is so freshly scented that it's a delight to use and completely appeals to ladies such as myself who enjoy a crisp, unadulterated scent as much, or perhaps more, than those shower gels which have been overloaded with fragrance.
In the shower I was pleased with the amount of lather this produces when used with my sponge, there are neither too many nor too few bubbles to wash with and those I ended up with felt luxurious and very cleansing on my skin.
The fragrance is wonderful. Avon tell me that Water Lily and Grapefruit have been used to create this delightfully fresh aroma, it's a rather feminine fragrance despite the bottle looking as though it would be suitable for both sexes and I doubt many men would feel comfortable using this one due to the sweet perfume of the gel which lingers for a while after my shower.
The fragrance itself is ever so slightly floral and has a vague citrus aroma which comes through more as I am showering rather than initially from the bottle. I cannot say I can actually pick out either the scent of lilies or grapefruit but the two very different fragrances combine beautifully to give me a delightfully light and fresh showering experience.
The cleansing properties of this shower gel are excellent. After showering I feel squeaky clean and every particle of dirt has been removed from my skin. The citrus addition in the gel left me feeling refreshed after my shower and although not enough has been used to give it a zingy feeling, I do believe that the grapefruit has helped make my shower a little more invigorating than usual.
The consistency of this shower gel is perfect in my opinion, as are the rest of the shower gels in the Senses range. It's thick enough not to drip everywhere when I come to use it, yet not so thick that I cannot comfortably get a lather from it whilst transferring it from my sponge to my body.
Overall I'd say this is yet another winner from the Senses range. I have used most of their varieties now and have to say this is certainly one of my favourites due to the pleasant fragrance and effectiveness at cleansing my skin. I have not experienced any irritation since I began using this and it rinses from my body extremely easily meaning there is no sticky residue when I come to dry myself after showering.
A 250ml bottle of Water Babe shower gel is usually £2, although the entire Senses range is very often on special offer at half price or BOGOF. In the current brochure you can choose a Senses gel free when you purchase selected bath and body products, so a perfect opportunity to sample this delightful new offering.
Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware by now that I work as an Avon representative when my poor health allows, and have done so for a number of years now.
I regularly look out for bargains and new products in the Avon brochure. One Avon range in particular that seems to have regular bargains within it is the 'Avon Senses' range, and therefore I am often able to afford to buy myself a little treat (or two!) from this range.
The Senses range covers a variety of products such as liquid soap and shower gel. I like the fact that 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 because of this branding, I 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 these new shower gels now and am really quite impressed with them!
The shower gel I have been using recently is called 'Waterbabe' 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 and was quite competitively priced.
Supplied in a plastic bottle with a plastic blue coloured cap on top, the plastic lid on the bottle has a 'flip up' cap which I did find was quite good at preventing spillages and waste of the shower gel.
The picture on the label to the front of the bottle shows a rather nice picture - lots of crashing waves and blue seas/oceans. The label also says 'fresh and uplifting' under the 'Waterbabe' name. All in all the impression I get from the packaging is that I will be somewhat revitalized and refreshed after using this shower gel.
The reverse of the packaging informs me "Refresh your senses with this uplifting fragrance", which confirms my initial first impressions perhaps!
I have found that the gel is quite thick in consistency - It is obviously another good quality product from Avon, and I personally prefer thicker-in-consistency 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 provides a little portion of frothy bubbles for me to cleanse myself. I was quite impressed with the feeling of the gel when using it on my skin - I again got the impression that it was of quite a high quality.
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 on my skin, believe me! There was no irritation to my sensitive skin, which is another plus-point for me personally.
I was surprised at the scent of this shower gel, particularly the first time I used it. I think because the gel is supplied in blue packaging, and has a fairly 'unisex' feel to the product, I expected it to have a kind of unisex type of smell to it too. I personally didn't find that this was the case, however.
The smell has a much-too-feminine sort of scent to be of any use to my partner. There is no way he would use this, blue bottle and packaging or not! I personally could not say that I cared too much for the fragrance personally, which surprised and disappointed me, given how much I was impressed with scents of the other 'Summer Collection' shower gels from Avon.
I find it quite difficult to pick out the exact scent, so bear with me on this one! I do think that there is a bit of a 'citrus' sort of undertone to the fragrance, and I do find it to be quite lemony. I think this is perhaps where the fragrance does nothing for me in terms of making me feel refreshed... It reminds me a little of the lemon-fragranced all purpose cleaner I use in my bathroom and around the house! This is definitely not a plus point for me, and I couldn't honestly say that I found the fragrance to be pleasant when used on my skin, even though the quality of the shower gel is quite high!
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, which obviously was beneficial to me on this occasion because I didn't like the scent much!
Because of the slightly over-powering scent and the fact that it did nothing for me in terms of making me feel refreshed or uplifted, I wouldn't recommend this shower gel too highly - the other offerings from the 'Senses' range have much more to offer, in my humble opinion! I would probably not buy it again, and can only really award it two stars. One because it offers great value (and to be fair the fragrance is pretty much a personal choice; other people may find the scent is more their cup of tea), and the second for the shower gel feeling nice on my skin and lathering up quite nicely. Other than these two points though, I didn't really find there was too much to tempt me back to this product!
If you would like to try out this product for yourself, the Senses shower gels are available to buy from your Avon Representative, or you can purchase online from www.avonshop.co.uk. 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 less (which in this instance, I would highly recommend!!).
Whether the recent additions to the Senses range - the 'Summer Collection' products - are temporary or permanent additions, I certainly would not buy this Waterbabe shower gel again. It's definitely not for me!
This is 1 of the 4 new Shower Gels launched a couple of books ago from Avon. So far it is only available in 250ml bottles, but has been on the special offer price of 99p. This is in the Senses range, which has other Shower Gels, Body Scrubs and Hand Wash.
The packaging for this range doesn't look that fancy. Then again this product normally sells for £2, so I wouldn't expect anything that fancy. It is a see through plastic Bottle and you can see the Light Blue gel through the Bottle. There is a stick on label on the front which has the writing in white and a picture of some water. Looks very Ocean Like and kind of tranquil. On the back it has how to use this, which says lather and use on body - Really?!!. This has a plastic flip lid so easy enough to use.
The gel is quite thick and you don't need a lot on a sponge or Shower Puff.
So what does this smell like? I was expecting this to smell like a lighter version of their Lagoon Shower Gel. The fragrance of this says it is Water Pearl, which I have no idea what this smells like. It kind of just smells like Clean Fresh Water, and just a nice fresh air kind of smell to it. It freshens and cleans and gives a tiny hint of scent to your skin. Nothing over powering, and when I went back to another Shower Gel I was using which was very heavily perfumed I found I preferred this more simple Gel.
A nice natural scent and I will buy another Bottle when this is finished.
