My mum works for Boots, and every so often she'll visit the site shop, coming home with a wide range of dirt cheap toiletries, that are so cheap in the staff shop because the packaging is maybe a little scratched of dented . While this means I get some great Boots brands product, it also means I get to get hold of some swankier stuff - including FCUK that Boots manufacture under license .
After my mums latest shop raid, I grabbed a bottle of this out of her selection . My budget generally doesn't stretch to branded toiletries, so I was looking forward to pampering myself with something a little more luxurious - even if the packaging would seem to suggest that it's a mens product .
The bottles pretty smart, a minimalist black cylindrical design, with white writing mainly, but the words 'wash off' printed in a vibrant green . The front of the pack informs me that this is Wash Off Fcuk body wash No 2. The back contains an ingredients list and instructions for use .
The lid is pushed down at one side, which opens up a spout at the opposide side. It's worked smoothly for me every time, even one handed or with wet hands . It's also quite narrow, which stops me from squeezing out more than I need, and when I close it, it is very secure (in fact, I've travelled with this and had no leaking).
The bottle itself is quite narrow, which I like - it's the perfect size for me to grip . There is no hook to hang it with in the shower though, but thats not a major issue .
I love the smell of this - I'm not great at describing smells , but this one smells fresh , earthy and clean, with hints of rosemary and spicy pepper . Although it's quite strong when just sniffing the bottle, the smell is a lot more subtle when using the product .
Using the product is easy- it is a thick clear gel that lathers up wonderfully well on wet skin , and feels really nice to use . It rinses off cleanly and easily, and doesn't dry out my skin at all when using it . After towel drying, I'm left with slight hints of the fragrance on my skin , but nothing very strong, and this soon fades .
My mum obviously picked this up at a pretty hefty discount from the staff shop because the lid was scratched , but a trip to a local Boots shows me that this costs a little under £3.60 for 190ml. Given that I only need to use a little bit of this at a time, I think thats a pretty reasonable price .
I probably would use this again - I know it's a mens product, but I do like the fresh smells of many mens products over the strong florals of a lot of womens products, and it leaves me feeling clean and refreshed !
A decent bodywash with a lovely (if short lived) scent .
