Boots Zingy Shower Gel
Advantages: Er, it isn't dreadful its just not all that great
Disadvantages: Everything really
Before I get stuck into writing this review I just have to point out that I am reviewing zingy shower gel from Boots but mine is the Berry one and Dooyoo have told me to pop my review here instead of opening a new link for it!
I often shop in Boots and on a recent shopping trip I spotted this costing only a pound a tube and thinking that was a good price for a 250ml size I picked it up and bought it along with plenty of other items whilst in there!
The packaging of this is rather basic looking and the gel comes in a see through tube with a flip top black plastic lid to the base of it and that covers a small hole. On the front of the tube there is a picture a strawberry on there and in black lettering we are told that it is Boots Zingy 'Kick start your day' Berry Shower Gel and that as I have already said there is 250ml of it. On the back of the tube other information listed includes telling us a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are given and contact details for Boots are listed. Nice easy to squeeze bottle this is and its nice to be able to see the product through the tube so you know when your running out!
Well this shower gel is thin, dark pink and smells nothing like zingy berries to me at all and unusually I didn't sniff this in the store before I brought it home. It smells sort of floral, I just don't know it's a really light scent and not too strong and although not awful it doesn't smell the way I think it should.
When in use I find I need rather a lot of this as it doesn't foam up to well. I cant really smell it in use all that much and I find it difficult to shave my legs and bits and bobs with this as I need so much to get my legs slippy and slidy enough and with enough foam and I get left feeling a bit sticky after using so much!
This doesn't leave me highly scented, I do feel clean enough though providing I don't use too much of it after using it and it leaves my skin feeling ok, not moisturised or anything but not dry either but like I said earlier if use too much of this I do get a slightly sticky feeling on my skin!
All in all I'm not one bit keen on this. I don't particularly like the fragrance, I need to use loads to get a foamy feeling and if I use too much my skin feels yak. Not a good buy this one which is surprising for a Boots own product sadly.
Summary: Surprisingly not a good product from Boots in my opinion!
