“ Brand: Calvin Klein / Cleanser / Gender: for women / Type: Body Wash / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Cleanses, „
I love designer products and up until recently I never saw the point of designer and more expensive shower gels in general. Me, I always buy decent stuff don't get me wrong but I wouldn't dream of spending about 20 quid on a shower gel until... I had a Rock 'n Rose gift set for Christmas that had perfume, shower gel and body lotion in it and I loved the shower gel so much that I re buy it month after month. The same has happened with this Obsession shower gel! I had it a couple of years ago with the matching fragrance and recently I got into re purchasing it! Consumerium is killing me!
Now lets just be clear this Obsession Moisturizing Body Wash matches Obsession for women!
The Obsession Fragrance....
Created in 1985 by Calvin Klein, Obsession for women is a refreshing, oriental, fragrance. It's fragrant nature explores essences of mandarin, bergamot and peach. Blended with notes of lemon, jasmine and oak moss.
Light cream 75ml tube which has a screw on/off lid situated at the bottom. All very simple and classy looking. On the front in big bold black writing I'm clearly told it is Obsession and on the bottom it tells me it's moisturizing body wash and under that I'm told it is by Calvin Klein. On the back I'm told the size and told it's for adult use only and given contact details for Calvin Klein and there's some stuff written in foreign languages I don't understand!
Well it's a shower gel but fine to use in the bath if you so choose as well! Now beware a little of this product goes a very long way and really lathers up well! Appearance wise it's got a look of a highly moisturising shower gel with a creamy texture and a bit of a shine to it. Colour wise its a light creamy bronze. It's dispensed by giving the tube a slight squeeze and comes out of it's small hole very well. It isn't so runny that it runs out the tube if you leave the lid off or slightly undone but it isn't really thick either.
Now as I've said a little does go a long way. Bout the size of a 10p is enough, give or take some. Add a bit of water and away you go. It lathers quickly and easily and is incredibly moisturising and hydrating on the skin. It really softens you up and is fabulous for shaving with! It rinses off very easily and leaves you clean, fresh, velvety smooth and smelling Divine (providing you like the smell of Obsession of course!).
This is the main reason I guess that people buy this! Personally I care more about the effects on my skin but this is just as important!
Now if you wear Obsession you'll love this it's a perfect base to layer up other products. Also this is great to wear alone on a summers evening or to go to bed after using, it's that strong!
It's highly, highly fragranced and there is no mistaking it is Obsession. I use this before bed and speak to my Mother or something and she'll always comment I'm wearing Obsession! The smell is almost identical to that of the fragrance it's sweet and syrupy smelling and somewhat mystical, deep and enchanting! (It's one of my all time favs can you tell? lol).
To my nose it's a mix of Vanilla, Amber, Orange and Oriental Spices. The bathroom smells wonderful for a couple hours after as well and the smell on the body lasts all day (or night) long. It keeps you feeling fresh and seductive all day!
This is a shower gel I would never use with any other fragrance as it would confuse other fragrances but as I said earlier I love it in conjunction with the Obsession fragrance or alone! It's worth it's weight in gold for a touch of unadulterated luxury that really does do nothing but good to my skin!
Recommended for anyone but cos its so moisturising I would assume its great for people with dry skin in particular!
£20.00 in Boot's and can be found much cheaper in discount stores on line.
