Boots Zingy Shower Gel
Disadvantages: Artificial Scents
Boots Zingy Shower Gel retails for £1, exclusively at Boots. This shower gel retails for half the RRP of its most comparable product, Original Source Shower Gel. It is very affordable and for the price you get 250ml of product.
The gel is packaged in a transparent tube, which allows for you to see how much product is still available. The plastic in which the bottle is made is flexible and allows for every bit of product to be used. The shape of the bottle also means that the gel will drain from the top but with also stand up easily in a shower or bath.
This shower gel is available in Mint, Lemon, Berry and Lime Scents. The two products that I have tried are the Lime and Berry scents
The scent of the Lime Product is not one that I would recommend. To me this smells artificial and seems like I am washing in cleaning products. It is a highly overpowering scent. In comparison the Berry shower gel is less artificial but is still refreshing.
To my advantage or not; both scents do not stay on your skin.
Boots advise that for the best results to use this shower gel with a shower puff or sponge. I definitely agree with this. When using it on its own a lot of work and product would need to be put in to see a small amount of lather however with a loafer there was bubbles all round and only a little amount of product was needed.
This berry shower gel is pink and will apply pink to the skin. Do not panic. This does not stain the skin but will easily wash off, this is just something to be aware of. The Lime shower gel is green but the colour will not transfer to your skin
The shower gel itself is very gentle on the skin and does not irritate eczema or leave the skin tight, nor does it moisturise.
These are a great alternative to the Original Source shower gels if you don't want the scents to linger but want a shower gel to 'kick start your day'.
Summary: Does the job
