As part of my Christmas presents last year I got lots of smellies including various shower gels. I always encourage the family to do this as it means that I don't have to worry about buying any for a while and of course it gives me a choice when I come to have my shower.
One of last year's offerings was Imperial Leather Revitalising Shower Gel. Since it was a present I had no idea how much it had cost but after a bit of investigation via Google I have found out that it costs about £1 for 250ml. I have seen the range in Boots recently for this sort of price and, since they often have offers on this sort of thing, it would be worth checking there if you are looking to buy this product.
As with the other current Imperial Leather shower gels the package is slightly unusual when compared to the equivalent products from other manufacturers. It doesn't have a hook to hang it up in the shower, which may cause a problem if you don't have a shelf in your shower cubicle, but the unusual thing is the shape of the container. It is kind of wiggly! It curves slightly first to the left and then to the right. The picture at the top of the page will show you what I mean. It does make it into a shape that it easy to grip when my hands are wet whilst showering.
The Revitalising variety is in a bright turquoise coloured plastic container with the name of the shower gel on the front together with turquoise and white swirls. Of course, since the container is plastic, it should be recycled.
This shower gel contains skin conditioners and sea minerals and allegedly has an 'oceanic fragrance'.
To use the shower gel you start by flipping open the lid whereupon a lovely fragrance will greet your nostrils! I don't know if it was because I had read that the smell would be 'oceanic' and so there was an element of suggestion but the fragrance did remind me of the seaside. It was a sort of fresh, breezy smell which did put me in mind of the sea.
You then turn the container upside down and squeeze until the shower gel comes out into your hand in a nice smooth blob. It lathers up well in the shower surrounding me with bubbles and that lovely smell! The thickness of the lather helped to make my skin feel soft and moisturised and the smell of the shower gel lingered in the air and on my skin well after I had finished my ablutions.
Considering the fact that this shower gel only cost £1 I am very impressed with it and will certainly buy it again at that price. I also received one or two other shower gels from this range so expect more reviews as I try them all in my shower!
As with anything of this type there is a cautionary note telling you to avoid getting it in your eyes and to wash them well with warm water if any does get there, but that's pretty much common sense isn't it?
