Ok, awfully punned title aside, this shower gel was a huge let down in my opinion. I'm not really all that familiar with Cath Kidston products, aside from being aware of the recognisable packaging, and so I don't know whether this was a one off blunder on the company's part, or whether all the scented products are like this.
The packaging itself is appealing - a simple white bottle, decorated with attractive small flowers, with the Cath Kidston logo centred in the middle of the bottle. At 250ml, it feels quite weighty in your hand, as though the product will last for some time. This shower gel is one of the many of the 'Wild Flowers' range, which also come in the scents of 'Wild Rose' and 'Honeysuckle', although I do not know how these smell, nor do I wish to find out if they're anything like this product.
The product itself
So, anticipating some lovely, florally scent to my shower gel, I was extremely disappointed to discover that the product reminded me of some sort of Lynx shower gel smell that my boyfriend might use. While that smells good on HIM, I do not want to smell of man. I was truly shocked by the smell, and was worried that someone might indeed comment that I smelt like a man. Although I do not pretend to know what Bluebells actually do smell like, I imagined that it would be something much more floral than what was greeting my nostrils. So paranoid that I imagining this 'manly' scent, I took it to my boyfriend the next day and asked whether he thought it smelt like a man's generic shower gel, to which he agreed it did.
£6.75 from Amazon, and completely overpriced in my opinion. You're paying for the label of Cath Kidston, not for a good quality product.
Absolute disappointment. Do not waste your money. Although the packaging is appealing, I'm rating the product 1 star, because I think it's the actual shower gel that's important, and I do not wish to smell of man.
