Ages ago I was given a gift set for Christmas which consisted of this Hugo Boss perfumed shower gel and body lotion. I have never really used any Hugo Boss products before as it reminds me of a male oriented brand but of course as it was a gift I was appreciative!
My shower gel comes in slightly different packaging as being a small 50ml, it comes in a plastic tube bottle with a top down lid. The packaging is ideal as it faces down so it can easily be squeezed out and when nearing the end of its usage it is already all flowing down to the spout of the bottle. The bottle is white with orange font and actually looks quite simple and basic - not really like a premium brand!
The shower gel itself is a thick consistency and is completely transparent. The smell of this shower gel is very fragrant and strong when the tube is opened. It has slightly floral undertones but comes strongly off as rather musky but in a sweet way which is very pleasant. In the shower the smell really comes out and fills the room when all bubbled up under the hot water and the entire bathroom smells nice but nothing too exotic or exciting.
I used a shower puff when washing with this and I found this shower gel lathers up rather nicely and not a lot is required to create a substantial amount of bubbles at all. It is easy to use all over, and I do think it feel effective at removing daily dirt and grime leaving my skin feeling quite clean and refreshed afterwards. It does not leave my skin feeling super dry so this is a nice bonus (although I definitely still need to moisturise after washing!). The smell also lingers well on my skin, leaving me smelling nice and I really don't need any perfume for the rest of the day.
Overall this is actually a nice shower gel I was surprised at as it is something I probably wouldn't have headed out to buy. The smell is actually quite nice and as a set with the lotion it really would make a nice gift for a lovely lady. Packaging is a bit garish so only gets 4 stars from me!
