      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This is the best shower gel I have to admit many are not very nice to the skin but this one adds moisture and it works really well ,don't use to much but otherwise it lasts for over 20 washes.its not that expensive I always get them when there on offer which is most of the time there is many different flavours and smells which make you smell delightful,as well as washing you and creating a different atmosphere when your showering so I recommend these very much.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice shower gel!

      I recently purchased this product from my local Poundland store knowing that it usually retails at about £2.99 a can in places like Tesco, Asda and Boots and the likes so felt I was getting a bit of a bargain which I always appreciate of course lol.

      The Packaging:

      The cans of these Imperial Leather Foamburst are actually really nice in appearance. This particular one holds 200ml of the product and comes in a yellow and white can with a push button dispenser to the top of it and on the front of it we are basically told that it is Cussons Imperial Leather Foamburst Sunrise 'With uplifting manderin, lemon balm & ylang ylang'. On the back of the can we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, cautions and ingredients are given as is the size stated (as I have listed already) and contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nice packaging this is, unisex in appearance to.

      Using It:

      Well on the front of the can we are told that this should provide us with 40 washes per can. Of course that depends on how tight or heavy handed you are when using this product, me I find I get about 20ish washes with this but then I like to use alot of this type of product anyway. Basically a squirt of this goes from a clear gel consistency to foam in seconds and away you go.

      This releases a very nice, clean and soft scent. It has a slight orangy smell to it with a little floral fragrance too though I can't really detect any lemon scent in this however it is fresh and not not overpowering or too sweet at all.

      I find this soft in use, can shave my bits and pieces with this if I want to and that it rinses off brilliantly leaving me feeling fresh and clean all day long and my skin feeling supple, not dried out or greasy.

      This for me is a nice one to use in the morning and it gets a thumbs up from me!

      Available in all good chemists and supermarkets etc.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Perfect for early mornings in the shower

        I love this product, it's not often you can get excited about showergels but this is one to get you out of bed in the morning.

        First the packaging is so nice and bright you can't help but reach for it in the shower on a cold dark morning! It has an easy dispense button so you aren't fiddling about taking lids off or opening lids. Just push the button and out comes some shower gel...and its actually gel. Like shaving gel. You don't need a lot of this, just a 10p sized blob in your palm. The amount of foam you get from this is UNBELIEVABLE!

        Just make sure your body is already wet or when you rub the gel on you'll kind of get stuck! The small blob you squeezed out will do for all of your body. In this product, a little really goes a long way.

        The colour of the product is orange and it smells delicious, really citrusy but not sickly sweet. My skin always feels very soft after using this. There are others in the range but this is my favourite because of the fragrance, I like something that wakes me up in the morning.

        Bottle size is 200ml and costs around £2.99. Can be bought in Boots, supermarkets and pharmacy's

        Happy Showering!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        One I will buy again

        ==Buying==

        I first saw this shower gel when wandering around my local Tesco store and I was drawn to the colours of the tins, as it was a new product it was on a special offer for £1.50 a tin and I decided I would give it a try. The product usually sells for £2.99 a tin which I think is a ridiculous amount and the best offer I have seen it on since I bought it is 3 tins for £5 which isn't too bad and a saving of about £4 if you bought 3 separately.

        ==The Range==

        There are 6 different options within this range which was created by imperial Leather, there are Sunrise, Moisture plus, Japanese Spa, Hawaiian Spa, wake up and Ocean Spa. Each fragrance has a different coloured tin which are yellow, lilac, white, pink, green and blue, the colours are all quite pale and the tins have a matt finish. The thing I don't really like about buying these is that you really haven't got a clue what they are going to smell like and it isn't as if you could have a quick squirt to test it.

        ==Packaging==

        Like I have said the product comes in a tin, I personally was drawn to the sunrise option as the description on the tin is "with uplifting mandarin, lemon balm and ylang ylang" and since I generally like lemon fragrances I thought this was a good bet. The top is made of plastic to match the colour of the tin and the top presses down to release the product which means no trying to unscrew a cap with wet hands which I like. The front of the tin shows the Imperial Leather logo and a few colourful squiggles, flowers and dots, I wouldn't say the tins are really that eye catching but when they are all lined up together on the shelves they look really appealing. On the pack of the tin you are promised "over 40 showers in every pack" and given the general information such as ingredients, warnings and directions for use.

        ==Using==

        On squirting the product I was impressed by the immediate scent which I personally think smells very fruity but more like mango and mandarin than lemon. The product comes out of the tin as a pale yellow gel and one rubbing your hands together you find it lathers up very well and therefore only a small amount is needed. The product rinses off the skin very easily and leaves a lovely gentle smell on the skin for an hour or two and even as you have forgotten about it you will move and suddenly get another whiff of the delicious scent. One thing I am not too happy with is that after a few uses the press top seems to lose its power and it struggles to dispense the product although you can still use it so all is not lost.

        ==Opinions==

        I really like this product it is easy to use although once it has been used a few times people with hand problems may not find it so easy. I find my skin is left with a lovely scent and nice and soft which is what you want after a shower and after work it deals with the biro and marker pen on my hands really well. I think the price is very steep for a shower gel but will be buying some more of these to try whilst they are on offer I just wish you could smell them before you buy.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Overal a brilliant product I love using it and would highly recommend it!

          I recently purchased this product Imperial Leather Foamburst Sunrise from my local super market. I usually stick to the same soaps/shampoo's ect because I have sensitive skin and I have experienced "flare ups" when changing products.
          Theres many things I really like about this product. Firstly the colourful bottle , secondly how easy it first is to dispense the shower gel and thirdly how well and quick the gel foams to create a lovely fragenced shower foam. I really like that you just have to push the top of the bottle to dispense the gel so no mucking about with lids or tight bottle tops. The foam is easily washed off and leaves a fresh fruity smell on your skin. After the shower my skin felt soft and smelt great! The bottle also fits greatly on my toiletrees rack by the shower head. The gel foams easily on body , flannel or shower scrunchy (i prefer shower scrunchy as it seems to go longer) The only small downful of this product is that once the bottle starts to get empty you have to press the top with quite a bit of a force and I have experienced my fingers slipping and dropping the bottle (which makes a hell of a noise!) but this is I suppose some thing to expect from a bottle that has a pump dispenser. I have managed to get upto 40 good washes out of a bottle and I also use the product as a shaving foam too for my legs and under arms. Overall I really like this product and continue to buy , I like it even better when it is on offer. On average I pick it up for around £2.00 or £1.50 on offer but obviously this varies from store to store.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A luxury feel to an everyday product which is economical and pleasant to use.

            I am a fan of most things from the Imperial Leather brand that I have tried in the past, as their products always seem quite luxurious to me and it has become clear to me that it is a brand that I can trust. I have tried out several of the Imperial Leather 'Foamburst' foaming shower gels in the past and have really loved each and every one of them.

            From the Imperial Leather Foamburst range of foaming shower gels, the "Sunrise" Shower gel was one that I had not tried out before. I bought it recently in a local discounted drugstore and paid around £2 for the tin can of the product, which is a fairly generous 200ml in size. It is even more generous, given that I am informed on the front of the can that the product contains "40+ showers per pack". Whilst I wouldn't normally pay around the £2 mark for a basic, everyday shower gel product, the luxurious feel of the Foamburst, together with the amount of use I can get from one can make it a fairly economical product, all things considered.

            The Sunrise Foamburst shower gel comes in a container that is unusual for a shower gel product; there is no plastic bottle, no flip up plastic cap and no see-through plastic to see the liquid shower gel product itself. Instead, the Foamburst is packaged in a yellow and orange coloured metal tin, that looks to me like an anti-perspirant deodorant or a body spray or something similar. There is a plastic lid at the top of the metal tin within which there is an indent which dispenses the product when pressed.

            The Sunrise Foamburst shower gel is a pale orange sort of colour, although it is fairly translucent. The gel is squirted onto my flannel from the nozzle on the metal canister quite neatly and it looks rather like a paste or a thick gel to me, much thicker than a normal shower gel 'liquid' product that I would usually use. Anyway, it is evident fairly soon after dispensing the gel from the can that it is going to be quite a highly-fragranced product, as the fresh smell is evident almost immediately.

            The smell is a very fruity one and I am pretty sure that I can very easily detect the mandarin in it, as promised in the product description on the front of the metal canister. It also informs me that the Sunrise Foamburst contains 'lemon balm and ylang ylang'. I have no idea what either of these things smell like, (well, I would assume that the lemon balm was a bit of a lemony smell?!) but suffice to say that the fragrance of the product is extremely fresh, very fruity and extremely pleasant. It's unfortunate that the scent doesn't last too long on my skin after using the product but I tend to find this is the case with most shower gel products that I use regularly. I like the smell of the product so much that I have been hunting high and low to try and find a scented candle that is similar. No luck so far, but I'll keep trying.

            The 'Foamburst' element of the product comes into full force pretty much as soon as the product hits water. What transforms from the thick, orange-coloured gel-like paste is an absolute abundance of rich, creamy, luxurious foamy lather. This makes the product seem very rich and luxurious when I am using it and it seems to be extremely soft and gentle, fluffy even, on my tired skin.

            The product produces so much foam that I have actually used this to shave my legs once or twice, given that the Sunrise Foamburst produces a sufficient lather to allow my razor to glide over my wet skin. This has proven to be useful when I am going on a short trip away as it means I only need to take one product instead of packing a separate shower gel and shaving foam. I have had no experience of any irritation to my sensitive skin when I have used the product in this way.

            Furthermore, I am pleased to report that there has been no aggravation to the patches of troublesome eczema that I have, nor has the product caused any itching or anything of the sort. In actual fact, this product was surprisingly mild and gentle to use on my sensitive skin - surprising because of the amount of fragrance and perfume that are presumably in its make up.

            I frequently use this product in the bathtub as well as when taking a shower. I find that a little of the product applied to a damp flannel soaps up quite nicely on the flannel and produces a significant soapy lather for me to wash myself. Only a small amount requires to be used so I would agree whole-heartedly with the claims made by the manufacturer about the product lasting for 40+ washes; in actual fact, it lasts me for around six weeks or so, which I think is very economical.

            (As a side note, I must advise any consumers who have not yet tried out the Imperial Leather Foamburst products to exercise a little caution when using them for the first couple of times. My other half decided to try out the product when we were on a weekend trip away recently. Having popped in to take a quick shower, he realised he had forgotten to take his own (more macho) shower product in with him. Noticing my canister of Foamburst Sunrise on the shelf, he decided to use it, rather than switch the shower off and go hunting for his own bottle. What happened next of course was that my (silly) other half squirted a good generous handful of the stuff onto his flannel and lathered up to his hearts' content. I'm sure you can imagine the scenario. The bathtub looked like somebody had emptied a whole fire extinguisher into it. And no, I'm not exaggerating. So really take my word for it please - a little DEFINITELY goes a long way with this particular product).

            All in all I am thoroughly in love with this luxurious lather-rich product and I will continue to buy it. I would whole-heartedly recommend it for anybody who is a fan of fruity, fresh smelling products to use in the bath or shower.

            There is a whole range of products available from the Imperial Leather Foamburst range, which can be found in all good drugstores such as Superdrug and Boots, as well as larger supermarkets such as Tesco or Asda. I have found prices can vary greatly, but are usually between £2 - £3.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A must buy if on offer

            For ages I have been wanting to try imperial leather foam burst but the price tag attached to it and the fact I was unsure if it would even be any good was putting me off. I tend to only buy my shower gels when they are on offer and unfortunately until recently I hadn't seen foam burst on offer in my usual shops.

            Foam burst comes in an aluminium can, much like cans of shaving foam. All the foam burst cans are colourful and 'sunrise' is no exception in a bright yellow colour. Foam burst can be found in most shops selling shower gels but at a normal price of around £2.50 to £3.00 it's not exactly cheap. However, I managed to pick mine up for half price which was a bit of a bargain!

            Foam burst sunrise contains mandarin, lemon balm and ylang ylang which is meant to 'leave you feeling energised and full of life'. Imperial leather describe foam burst as the 'ultimate shower experience' and your meant to be able to get 40 showers out of a can which is quite impressive since shower gels can often run out quite quickly.

            When I went to use foam burst for the first time I must admit I was a bit shocked but I don't know why because at the same time I didn't really know what I was expecting. The top of the can has button you press down and the gel comes out. You really don't need much as a little goes a long way. The gel itself is orange in colour and smells very orangey. When it comes in contact with water the gel turns in to a really thick and rich foam. Unfortunately the only smell that comes through when using sunrise foam burst is the mandarin, it would be nice if there was more lemon in there. I found that foam burst didn't dry out my skin and was impressed that in my rust prone bathroom the can is still going strong after a couple of weeks.

            Overall I would recommend foam burst sunrise. It smells nice and lasts a long time. I can't wait to try some of the other varieties available. However, I would probably only buy it again if it was on offer.

              Disadvantages

              Ordinary shower gels can not compare to foamburst

              I have used foamburst for a few years now and I was recently bought Sunrise as a gift and it is now my favourite foamburst.

              I think foamburst is very reasonably priced as you only need to use a tiny bit so the bottle lasts a long time. I think they normally cost about £1.50 which is about average for a shower gel but this is not your average shower gel. You can clean your whole body using the smallest amount of foamburst and you really will be amazed what it turns into with minimal effort.

              It is very easy to use and perfect for the shower as you don't have to try and open anything with wet hands, you just press down on the trigger and it releases the gel. As soon as you rub it in on your sponge or facecloth it transforms into loads of foam.

              Sunrise has a lovely fresh citrus smell and is very uplifting but not too feminine so my husband can use it too. It feels lovely on my skin and makes my skin feel soft, clean and refreshed.

              I think the name suits it really well as it is perfect for sunrise. It wakes you up with a sunny happy smell.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A fresh, foaming shower gel.

              I tend to spend at least every other weekend at my boyfriends which means I have my own bag of essential bath, body and beauty items to keep me going for at least 24 hours. I just always expect my stuff to be there ready for me to jump in the shower, so I was slightly out of sorts a couple of weeks ago when I realised my shower gel had finished! Now, of course my boyfriend was more than happy for me to use his shower gel but I like my own! I like to lather myself into a frenzy which is probably why I get through so much shower gel. So it was an emergency trip to ASDA (the closest shop to us) for an emergency supply of shower gel. I have to be honest and say that I was looking for a bargain, so when I came across Imperial Leather and its foamburst range, I was pleasantly surprised that it was on offer for £1!!!

              ** Foamburst - Sunrise **

              Imperial Leather states that Foamburst is the ultimate shower experience. Now that sounds exciting! Foamburst is a great name says exactly what it does. It is shower gel which is supposed to turn from a transparent gel and when mixed with water and should literally burst into a foam!

              Foamburst by Imperial Leather comes in about 10 different varieties, ranging from 'Hawaiian Spa' to 'live wire' so I definitely want to go through the range, but on this specific day I opted for 'Sunrise'. I have to admit that the packaging had a lot to do with it. It is packaged in an ultra-smooth aerosol bottle, shaped in an hourglass figure. It is a sunshine yellow colour which blends to a paler yellow as it goes to the bottom of the bottle.

              The 'Sunrise' Foamburst is apparently filled with uplifting mandarin, blended with caring lemon balm and uplifting ylang ylang. I love citrus bath products because they make my skin smell fresh and clean after a shower and I do think they have a natural uplifting scent in the bathroom, as long as they are done right and do not smell to artificial. Otherwise it can be a little bit sickly.

              Overall the description and the look of the shower gel sound very appealing and almost a product that will make you go in the shower purely for the pleasure of using the shower gel. But it always comes down to the test...

              ** What is it like to use? **

              This shower gel is definitely a cut above the rest. You press down on the bottle and out squirts a thick line of shower gel. It is a pale transparent yellow colour and immediately you are greeted with the sweet aroma of oranges and lemons. It isn't too overpowering but it really is quite mouth-watering!

              The thick gel when hit with moisture really does turn into creamy thick white foam. It spreads over so well so don't get carried away with the gel. It is almost identical to shaving foam. In the sense that a small blob of gel turns into a mountain full of soft white foam, this is exactly the same. Plus as the gel lathers up the fragrance bounces from the foam to the skin to all over the bathroom. Definitely a great pick me up at any time of the day.

              The foam takes a little bit more extra effort to rinse off but that is because it is such a thick and luxurious gel. Once it is rinsed off it leaves my skin feeling incredibly smooth and soft. It doesn't dry it out at all or leave it feeling dehydrated which is always a bonus. It also, as any good shower gel should, leaves me feeling incredibly clean and fresh. Plus the gorgeous light citrus fragrance linger son your skin for a least an hour afterwards. Nothing to heavy but just a light clean and fresh fruity fragrance. With all of this in one bottle, I really can't ask for more!

              ** To End... **

              I honestly think this is one of the best shower gels I have ever used. In terms of making me feel clean and fresh it does that 110%, it definitely makes my skin feel cared for and goes a long way. The bottle actually states that it will last for 40+ washes. I thought to myself yeah right, especially the way I use shower gel, but honestly, you will get 40 washes if not more because you just don't need that much of the gel. It lathers up so well that you will be drowning in soft foam!

              As I said earlier I bought this at the bargain price of £1 (I should have stocked up when I had the chance!) but when it isn't on offer the 200ml bottle costs £2.54. Which is quite pricey to be honest, but at the same time you do get plenty for your money! But I know that it can be hard to hand over that money when there are usually shower gels on special offer, but I have to admit this is probably one shower gel that really is worth its money.

              Another bonus is that the bottle is rust free, which means that even though it will be in a damp and water filled environment, there are no worries about the bottle becoming rusty or hard to dispense, which can be very annoying.

              So yes, I would recommend this to everyone, male and female, (and my boyfriend better not steal it when he is in the shower!). It really does give you the ultimate shower experience... (almost!)

                Disadvantages

                see review

                ***I NEED TO START BY SAYING I PRODUCT SUGGESTED IMPERIAL LEATHERS SKIN KIND BATH FOAM AND WAS ASKED BY DOOYOO TO REVIEW IT HERE. IT IS NOT THIS PRODUCT AND IS NOTHING LIKE IT REALLY SO I AM NOT SURE WHY BUT I AM DOING WHAT I WAS TOLD!***

                I was running out of bubble bath and during my recent Tesco shop I noticed that Imperial Leathers Skin kind restore bath soak was on offer for a pound. I hadn't seen this particular product before but I am familiar with the imperial Leather brand and thought that they offered high quality products so I felt confident in picking this up.

                The bottle is clear plastic all over and looks very pure and clean. The bottle is also recyclable.

                There is 500ml of bath soak in the bottle and the soak is also clear. I like the fact that you can see in the bottle how much of the product is left so that you know when you are running out and can replace it.

                The label on the bottle states that the product contains Vitamin B5 and marine extracts and that it is hypoallergenic and an allergen free fragrance. It also claims to be dermatologically approved for sensitive skin.

                I have used this product for both myself and my young son since buying it and have been really impressed with it.

                To begin you need to remove the lid and pour some of the soak under the running water. The product does come out quite quickly and it could possibly benefit from a smaller hole in which you pour from as you wouldn't end up with excessive amounts in your bath sometimes!

                The liquid has a nice fresh scent to it and just appears to be clean! As the bath soak is made with light, natural and moisturising ingredients and allergen free fragrances and without added colour you can feel confident that yourself and your family can use the soak without risking a reaction to your skin.

                When you pour the bath soak under the tap immediately a good amount of bubbles begin to form. I love this and so does my son as we both love lots of bubbles in the bath! The bubbles also last quite well when you actually get in the bath unlike some bath foams where you lose all the bubbles as soon as you step into the bath!

                When we have had a bath using this product our skin feels nice and soft afterwards. The only slight negative here is that there isn't really any fragrance left on our skin afterwards and I quite like to be able to smell it on myself afterwards.

                Whilst I can never make sense of ingredient lists I know that some people can and so they are as follows:

                Aqua
                Sodium Laureth Sulfate
                Cocamidoproply Betaine
                Sodium chloride
                Glycerin
                Polyquaternium-7
                Parfum
                Maris Sal
                Alga Extract
                Fucus Vesiculosus extract
                Panthenol
                Lactic acide
                Sodium Benzoate
                Tetrasodium
                Glutamate Diacetale

                In summary I really like this product because it does a good job at creating a lovely relaxing bubble bath but it also has a natural ethos which is nice as I can trust it to be kind to my son's skin.

                I wouldn't particularly say that this product relaxes my sore muscles at the end of the day but it does make a pleasant bath time. I would definitely recommend this product and would be likely to buy it again if I saw it on offer.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Give it a try, you won't regret it!

                  When a friend recommended me a while back on this foamburst, I was immediately intrigued. The idea of a gel that seemingly magically transformed into a foam sounded oh so very alien to my naive little ear buds.
                  However, my curiosity soon turned into rejoice as I tried it and fell in love with it!

                  The bottle itself is of a sleek, rounded design, and to actually dispense the gel/foam you've got to push the top down to release it from the little hole.
                  There's numerous different varieties of the foamburst - each with its own specific colour scheme.
                  The one that I've got is the 'Sunrise' version, and the bottle comes in a lovely pale shade of yellow, with the majority of the text being a light orange colour.

                  When the gel is released, it comes out as a pale, rather translucent orange colour. It has got a lovely fragrance, it's very sweet and has a twang of lemon to it.
                  As you go to rub in the substance, it transforms before your very eyes, and instantly turns into a a white, fluffy feeling foam.

                  On the bottle, it claims to create a "rich and creamy lather" - and the product certainly does not disappoint.
                  It lathers very well, and the foam feels gorgeous and velvety as you wash, leaving your skin feeling soft and silky-smooth!

                  As for price, Tesco have all the varieties in stock for the price of £2.45. However, it's currently on special offer at Superdrug for just £1.50 a bottle, yet at the moment they only stock 2 of the variants.

                    Disadvantages

                    Love it!

                    Cussons Imperial Leather Foamburst is mine and my husbands favourite shower gel, and Sunrise has become our favourite flavour. It has a fresh citrus scent and perfect to wake you up in the morning. When you apply it to your hand or flannel it comes out as a gel. When it is mixed with water it turns into a creamy foam and multiplies dramatically in size (meaning you must use it sparingly) It feels lovely and moiturising on the skin and leaves a refreshing (but not too overpowering) scent.
                    It comes in a can instead of a squeezy bottle and is a lot easier to use in the shower than a flip top lid as you just press a button.
                    It is more exensive than many other shower gels but beacuse you use it so sparingly it takes a lot longer to get through a can.
                    The shower foam is great to use to wake you up in the morning but also fanastic to use with a partner!

                      Disadvantages

                      Can go wrong

                      I have tried many different shower gels,over the years. Quite often I am left disappointed, as the lovely smell in the shower does not last on the skin. Well , I have found this Foamburst range to be different.
                      This one smells lovely and fresh, it is a thick frothy shower foam. One important thing, it is easy too use too much, so only a small amount ( a quick squirt in the palm) is required. The fragrance seems to stay on the skin quite a while and that shower fresh feeling, does seem to last a lot longer than other products. I personally do not think it makes my skin any smoother, but it does not make it any drier either. I would say that one can lasts me about a month.
                      Another great thing about this range, is that it comes in many different fragrances, so I never get bored. The price is also fantastic. ( At the moment Tesco are selling two for £3, so I will be stocking up the bathroon cabinet)
                      This is definately my favourite shower gel and great value for money.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        citrusy and refreshing, and easy on the wallet

                        The first time I bought Foamburst it was (as with many of my trial purchases) largely on a whim and completely attributable to the presence of a remarkably good special offer (buy one get one free in Boots - and they're already very moderately priced at a little over £2). The label also claimed that each little metal can (which reminded me a bit like a deodorant can, only heavier) contained 40+ washes, which I was understandably skeptical about but just had to test myself.

                        The tin is very colourful and interesting - I like the yellow of the sunrise variety. It's got lemon, mandarin and ylang ylang scents, which was also a selling point for me, as I find citrusy smells help me to wake up in the morning.

                        My first use of this product really was a surprising experience. the bottle recommends that you squirt just a small amount of the pressurised liquid onto your palm, or your sponge or flannel, and so I did. instead of applying it straight to my skin I watched it for a while - and before my eyes the clear yellowish liquid started to expand and turn into a growing mound of foam! The smell was very good too, citrusy but not too sour, the ylang ylang adds a pleasant sweetness and floral element. As you wash with this the foam keeps growing and growing - a very small amount will grow into enough to clean your whole body!

                        Also, a little tip I picked up (this is recommended on a foamburst of a different variety but it works just as well with this one) - if you use slightly more of the gel than you would to wash normally you can create a very thick creamy lather that is just perfect for shaving your legs in the shower if you want to avoid those little nicks and keep your skin feeling soft and smooth.

                        Slight negative - it's very easy if you don't know what you're doing to use WAAAY too much of this and end up with more foam than you can wash off, which can leave your skin slightly too hydrated - but that's just a testament to its moisturising properties.

                        Disadvantages

                        Great product

                        When I lived at home with my parents I just used whatever shower gel they would buy, however when I moved in with my boyfriend (now husband) he refused to use any other product other than Cussons Imperial Leather Foamburst. At first I wondered why but now I am totally converted and will only ever use Foamburst, it is fantastic.

                        Imperial Leather Foamburst comes in many different varieties, I will think I've tried them all and then I will see another kind in the supermarket. I bet there are about 15 different varieties, all with totally gorgeous smells. The one I am using at the moment and is my current favourite is Sunrise.

                        Sunrise is made with uplifting mandarin, lemon balm and ylang ylang. It has a really fruity smell and leaves you smelling fresh.

                        The thing I like the most about Foamburst is that you only have to use a small amount and it really lathers up, as it says "instantly transforms in use from a transparent gel into mounds of rich and creamy lather".
                        If anything you end up with too many bubbles and have to spend ages rinsing them away. It says there is enough in a can for 40 washes and I would say it does provide you with that amount of washes.

                        The foamy shower gel leaves you feeling so clean and smelling loverly. It is great.

                        From most shops this costs about £2.49 for a 200ml bottle which I think is a little expensive. I buy mine from Bodycare at a cost of just £1.49. This is a good price but they only stock three different varieties so if you want to try different kinds then you have to shop elsewhere.

                        I haven't got a bad word to say about Foamburst, it is a great product that is really foamy, smells nice and leaves you feeling clean, what else could you want for a shower gel.
