I've managed to find another Lynx product that I'm instantly taken with - Lynx Fever showergel with Brazilian hot mud and red dragonfruit extract. It was bound to be a winner before I even opened it - my wife is also warm, sexy and orange (orange haired, not fake tanned!). It's got the warmth of a cinnamon heavy jug of mulled wine but without actually having any cinnamon or the distinctive scent of cinnamon in it. Scent wise, I would say it very much reminds me of oranges but again without actually smelling of oranges - I am guessing that the zingy, crisp citrus scent comes from the dragonfruit.
There are floating red "bits" in this - my mate Zanussi (he's a bit of a geek) informs me that this is known as a colloidal suspension. My wife, who is far less geeky tells me that these bits are known as a Scrub - I'm guessing that these bits is the Brazilian mud making its presence known. However, unlike some scrubs I've had the misfortune of using this particular one doesn't feel in any way harsh or scratchy when used on sensitive areas like the face.
I think they've got the level of warmth just right - any more and it would be an exercise in sadism, but as it is it perks me up, or as the label says - it gets me into the Salsa spirit. As with a lot of Lynx showergels, this is frequently on offer, but ordinarily expect to pay around £2.50 for a 250ml bottle. I much prefer to buy it only when it's on offer. For me, it's another solid Lynx product - smells great and cleans well and I can only give it the full five stars. Thanks for reading.
I love Lynx shower gels and even have an entire box dedicated partly to them http://i.imgur.com/evGcDMZ.jpg
This shower gel strengthens my obsession with them!
Lynx shower gels cost around £2 each for a 250ml bottle, a bottle will generally last me about a month so this means that my yearly spend on shower gels will be around £24 - I would say that this is an average price for shower gels, not as cheap as it could be but not breaking the bank either.
The bottle designs are always changing but also quite innovative. The Lynx bottle design featured int he picture accompanying this review is their old-style bottle (Well, when I say old-style I mean last year's style). They now come in a bottle like this: http://goo.gl/LQ7sX
The new bottle design is a little thicker than the old one but narrower with the same height. You get no extra gel with this change but I find it far easier to hold, especially when the bottle and your hands are soaking wet. The old bottle had finger grooves which even I, with what I would say are quite large hands, could not fit all of my fingers into. The flick-cap has also been replaced with a push lever which reveals a release spout. Although these changes do make it a little easier to sue the shower gel, especially holding and opening it with one hand, it is still no real reason to buy this gel over another brand. The important thing really is the gel itself...
The Lynx Fever shower gel is a deep orange colour it also has a silvery glitter effect through it although once applied both the colour and glitter effect both disappear to form a white foam as most shower gels do.
The gel is not the best to apply in my opinion, I often find myself losing the majority of the gel onto the shower floor as it slips around, especially on wet hands far too easy and can slide of my body before it has been lathered. However, if you do take care to not lose it, once lathered the gel is very good, it forms a large amount of foam to cover all of your body and seems to clean well. I have used it to get off both oil and mud and it handles it very well.
Although at the moment the shower gel seems very average, this all changes when it gets to the fragrance. Of all of the shower gels, this has to be my favourite for its scent. As you would expect, it smells very similar to the Fever deodorant but in the shower gel it is a much bolder smell which makes it work far better. The bottle described the fragrance as "Brazilian Hot Mud & Red Dragonfruit Extract", to be honest, this would put me off buying it in the shops, I would not really want to be putting anything on me which
is described as "Mud" when having a shower - to "de-fancify" the description, I think it smells mainly of Orange with hints of other fruits. The smell is very deep and fruity and last all day - many of the other scents in the range I have found to wear off pretty quickly to almost instantly but this one is different and you will certainly not be disappointed with how long-lasting it is!
I am a fan of Lynx, I used to love the musk version until they discontinued with it. I also like Africa which my fiancé wears a lot. I can't remember why he bought this version of the shower gel rather than Africa but I wish he hadn't.
The Brazilian hot mud and red dragon fruit extract shower gel, is not only a mouthful to say, it takes your breath away for other reasons too. According to the back label this gets you into the Samba spirit and gets you warmed up for action!! I am not sure what kind of action though, that isn't mentioned. The shower gel is a bright orange colour and there are little red bits in this as well, I don't know what they are but they are always left in the bottom of the bath after bath time. The smell of this is very strong; it is quite hot and spicy smelling, I know it's hard to describe something smelling spicy but it does. It does tend to get into the back of your throat as well, if too much is used, you can taste the smell, hopefully that makes sense. This is a very in your face product and isn't subtle at all, my fiancé likes this but I intend to buy something different before this one runs out so he doesn't have to buy this again.
It lathers well and unfortunately you don't need to use much of this each time you shower. I don't know how much he paid for this but I know you can pick this up for £2.99. They also come in gift sets as well.
I used to take my whole toiletry bag with me when visiting my boyfriend but I soon got fed up of carrying it all around with me so in the effort of travelling light I decided to use his products where I can. One product I figured I could easily get away with using is his shower gel, and for the last few visits we've been using this Lynx Fever one. I actually bought him this one a while ago when I saw it on offer somewhere for around £1. It's usual price in Boots is £2.99 for the 250ml bottle.
What attracted me to this was the bright orange colour of the gel which can be seen through the clear plastic of the bottle. It really stands out and looks bright and appealing, especially in amongst all the black of other Lynx products. The bottle has a flip top lid which makes it easy and convenient to use, but I do find the lid a little stiff on this so sometimes it can be a bit difficult to open.
The gel, as I said already, is a bright orange colour, and it has a thick gel texture and lots of metallic looking little dots in it. When you start to use the gel, massaging it onto your skin you can feel that it has tiny little beads in it, not like a proper exfoliator, but definitely something there. The scent is absolutely lovely, which surprised me as I was expecting a quite masculine scent. What I actually got was a fresh, zingy scent of dragon fruit which is very refreshing to use. It does have a slight masculine musky scent in the background but the fruity scent is the predominant scent.
It lathers up well and I don't need to use much at a time to get a nice thick lather that will easily cover my whole body. It leaves me feeling very fresh and clean after using it. My usual preference is for moisturising body washes so I was a bit worried this might leave my skin feeling quite dry in comparison to my usual products, but it actually feels like it moisturises really well and it leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth.
The scent lasts well on my skin but it isn't overpowering and because it's not a particularly masculine scent I really don't mind if people can smell it on me.
All in all I've really enjoyed using this shower gel and it makes a nice change form the more creamy formulas I usually favour. Highly recommended whether you're a guy or a girl!
Lynx Fever is one in a new range of Shower Gels/Bodywashes for men. It is orange in appearance & when you first use it you might find its quite cold to the skin, especially if you are in a quite hot bath or shower.
My best advice there would be to run the bottle under your hot tap for a minute or so just to take the cold edge of it, it gives a completely different feel to the washing experience when warm as opposed to when the gel is cold.
The label states the product contains Red Dragonfruit (I assume this is what gives it the very nice orangy smell that lasts a very long time) and Brazilian Hot Mud. I assume the Hot Mud is the small granular objects, dont be put off by their description as they are actually very good for cleansing the skin like a facial scrub.
The smell and the mud combine to give an extremely refreshing wash that is also very invigorating, its a great way to wake up in the morning. You will certainly feel very alert after a wash using this product.
A 250ml bottle costs around £2 but it lasts a long time, even having 2 or 3 showers a week mine lasted at least 6 weeks. Obviously don't go mad when applying it, and you can make it last but a small amount is plenty to wash with as the gel is very thick indeed, it lathers well & the mud elements make for a good cleansing skin scrub.
As the gel is quite thick you will find like with most washing products the last few centimetres of the gel is very hard to squeeze out & use for a proper wash. What I did was to add a little water and shake the bottle and use the reminder for just washing my hands and face which gave the bottle an extra week of use.
I would say 7 weeks of good use and being able to use all of the product in the container for only roughly £2 is very good value indeed. I bought mine from SuperDrug but I would be pretty sure its available from all good supermarkets & pharmacies.
(this review also appears on Ciao!)
I was lured to this product due to its bright orange colour and bitty appearance. I always have it in my head that its going to be an intense and powerful product when its bright.
The bottle, like all Lynx shower gels is a great design and easy to hold. The label sticks on well and doesn't break off in your hand.
The product smells quite manly, not really a fresh smell but more mature man. So as a 20 something year old it doesn't really appeal to me. The gel itself has a nice feel on the body, slightly exfoliating with the little bits inside it. The gel lathers well and a little can go a long way.
It is reasonably priced for the time it would last considering you don't have to use that much of it.
I wouldn't buy again to the smell only(which is personal preference). The gel in itself is a good product.
Having used many shower gels in the past I have always found Lynx to be the best and I managed to get some on a decent buy one get one free deal recently and went for the fever range.
I had never used this product before but heard many good things about the item and I was amazed how nice it was. There was a thick feeling towards the gel but it was a nice fruity kind of smell which seemed to be aimed at the younger audience. It appears the design on the bottle and how they do the adverts as well the items are definitely aiming at the boys in the family but I have seen the ladies with these as well mainly due to the smell.
Usually when I scrub myself some shower gels seem to lack any smell or make you feel clean afterwards but this item does it really does lather up quickly and it makes you feel refreshed and clean and you feel like a new person at the same time.
I find that although there is plenty inside the bottle that when you squeeze some out you need very little to get a decent amount of smell towards you and when you leave a bath or a shower this item tends not to smell afterwards and it makes you feel good and cool and relaxed.
The smell is like orange to me which sounds very ironic considering the product comes in a orange liquid but it does have this orange smell which I think has more to it but no idea what that might be overall.
Inside the gel you can see tiny red little things which I believe are something else but not totally sure but with an item which makes you feel relaxed and smelling nice in the shower and when you leave you feel clean and calm it has to be worth a try to test for yourself.
The price for a 250ml bottle is around £2.60
Another Shower Gel that the wife picked up in Savers. I think if it wasn't for her then I would stick to the same Shower Gel, and also be paying full price for it always. She got this 250ml bottle for £1.29, and she said she had a sniff of it before she bought it and liked it. Well it isn't for her, it's for me and we don't always agree on nice smells.
Good thing about the Lynx Shower Gels is that they are easy to grab with wet hands in the shower. The thick ridges down the side make it easy to hold and although they are made with thick plastic they are easy enough to squirt some out and also the flip top lid is easy enough to open although a bit stiff to start off with. the plastic is clear and you can see the bright orange Gel shining through straight away.
I use Shower Gels on a Shower Puff and a little of this thick gel goes a long way. It rubs up into a lot of Bubbles and when rubbed over the body gives a good coverage.
This Gel smells quite fruity and tangy. I would say a citrus smell but there is also a spicy dash in this as well. I would say it has the masculine smell in it, but it isn't overly masculine, so the wife could get away with using this.
It is a nice refreshing Shower Gel and I would buy it again. You feel fresh afterwards and your skin smells a little bit fruity after the Shower as well.
Linx is brand I use on a regular basis and often get the range for Christmas presents and they are a nice range of shower gels for a very good price and I like to use lots of brands as I tend to get a little bored with just one, as there are so many on the market, also some are often on special offer too and so it is crazy not to buy products on offer.
This is a good size of 250ml and it has a nice slim, orange and black plastic bottle, which is easy to hold in the shower, with a flip lid, it is a thick gel and it lathers very well and has a very fruity fragrance, it is not the most favourite for me from this range but it is very refreshing, and it cleans the skin nicely.
It creates enough bubbles for me, especially when I am in a rush in the mornings and it rinses very well, I place a little on a sponge and it glides across my skin and the texture is soft and smooth too, and for the price it is a very good quality.
I bought this one for only £1.50 from Asda and it is worth the money, it does not dry the skin and it makes me feel nice and refreshed after a shower, I like the texture of the gel as it is not runny when applied to a sponge, it just lays on the top and then is easy for me to massage into my skin and it does not drip from the sponge as I have found with some other shower products.
This bottle has a nice design for placing in the shower and it is a nice size for when I travel and nice and slim for my wash bag and the amount that is needed is a small amount, so the bottle does last a long time.
The fragrance is left on the skin for some time and but it is not a fragrance that smells feminine, it is a refreshing smell, and it feels nice and cool on the skin when massaging it into the body.
I would say this is for men and women as my wife has tried this one and she likes it too, it is not such a masculine one as in some of the other fragrances from this range, I would say it is good for both sexes because of the fruity smell, once I get dried after a shower I feel nice, refreshed and clean and ready for the day.
It is extremely good value for money and a very good quality product and worth the money for a good brand and only a little is needed, and a little goes a long way.
I recommend it for anyone to try it as I feel it is very good for a cheap price for both men and women.
I rate it 5 stars.
Lynx Fever Shower Gel is a product we have all been using for the past few months due to purchasing some for the bargain price of 30p per bottle during a post xmas sell off. We have all found it to be a nice product and would recommend it, as it gives you a nice fresh just washed feeling. Perfect for these hot summer days we have been having!
Lynx Fever Shower Gel may be primarily marketed at the younger hormonal girl crazy lad, but I feel its so nice that anyone can use it. With that in mind the family have been enjoying the Lynx effect for sometime and will continue to alternate it with other products till its all been used up.
It doesn't leave a strong aroma on the skin after use, but smells fab when in the shower. It lathers up a storm if used with a good sized bath or shower puff and can exfoliate your skin at the same time.
The product comes in an almost clear plastic squeezy bottle with a plain black fliip top lid. I find that no matter how I try to get the gel out carefully, I always end up making a mess with it and need to clean the top off for the next time I use it. This is a bit annoying.
The Lynx Fever Shower Gel is a funky and colourful bright orange and has teeny red exfoliating beads in it. These do work to some extent, but cannot be relied on to give the same results as a dedicated exfoliating product. After all this is primarily a shower gel and nothing more. So I feel that the beads are more of a gimmick than anything.
Lynx Fever Shower Gel contains brazilian mud and dragon flower extract and I have no idea what they ought to smell like. I will say that to me the wash smells of fruity orange marmalade mixed with the hippy smell of patchoulli. I may be wrong and probably am, but thats what I get from it!
I feel that the product deserves a 4 star rating as its not my absolute favorite wash product, but it does do a good job and leaves you feeling refreshed with nice clean soft skin.
The exfoliating beads do seem more of an irritation than anything and to me were an addition the product didn't need. However as a shower gel it works well and is something I would recommend.
Lynx products are for men, yes? Lynx takes me back to school days when the stinky unwashed boys would spray themselves with Lynx on the bus to mask foul smells. This appalled me. I used Sure and I washed. Years on, I wonder if this still goes on. Lynx have broadened their range to include better shower gels these days though and I think the image of the brand is not quite so chavvy now.
This shower gel is available from all good supermarkets, but I confess I tried it while staying at a friend's house. The bottle stands up easily on the edge of a bath, personally I like the ones that hang with a hook, these are better for shower purposes. The shape and packaging is fine though and you can see what you are buying which always helps. Inside is the orange gel which looks visually appealing.
The smell is powerful enough to wake up any tired nose. I got a feverish blast from it. It was slightly zesty but there were spicey undertones in there. When I used it on my body, it seemed to almost warm the body up with the scent, which was pretty good. The gel produced a sufficient lather, without going super suddy. It rinsed off with ease and left my skin feeling alert and excited. For someone who had previously frowned on Lynx years ago, I was actually impressed with this shower gel.
A downside would be that the gel is a little watery and a better viscosity would be welcomed. On the plus side, the price tag comes in at under two pounds, making it affordable and in line with other leading brands. The spicey smell is the main draw here and I think I would buy this for myself in the future.
Lynx Fever shower gel is widely available in most supermarkets and Boots and Superdrug in the UK. Prices can vary but generally 1.49GBP is a decent price, you can get it for 99p on offer in the pound shop from time to time, but generally Tesco or Asda have an offer of 2 for 2GBP.
In a curvy, swirling plastic container, with black plastic cap, this is ugly in my opinion, the shower gel itself is a sludgy fake orange that looks more like some chemical overspill than something you would appreciate cleaning yourself with.
The plastic container is 250ml and has the Lynx insignia on the front, with some details of the product.
Whats in it:
Not sure if these are real but apparently, in this are Brazilian Hot Mud and Red Dragonfruit extract, the shower gel has a gritty texture which must be the Red Dragonfruit extract, and when you do wash with it, there is a heated sensation, that personally I don´t like, the product smells artificial a mixture of faux fruitiness and spice, which is great for an air freshener but isn´t something you really want to smell of. Its not particularly masculine and whilst I do like the gritty texture which is useful to exfoliate, I do find that after washing with this, I feel like I want another wash, which I don´t think was the point of the product.
This is a mid range product that does what it says on the tin, it looks different and artificial and it smells and feels different and artificial too. I personally don´t like the bright orange, or the shower gel container which is awkward to stand in the shower and can´t be hung like other shower gels. What is in its favour is the fact it is well priced and widely available, but personally this isn´t my favourite flavour in the lynx family.
I suppose out of all the |Lynx shower gels, I as a mere woman prefer this one. My son being 20years of age had some given too him for his last birthday, and after his first use of this product, I really liked the aroma of oranges. It took me a while to realize it was his shower gel that was producing this smell and I was following the scent around the house for days trying to locate its origin. So I suppose in that effect the advert works quite well.
However my son informed me that although it may smell pleasant it has had an effect on his skin which was slightly less pleasant. He developed a skin rash and it itched quite a bit, so he had an allergic reaction to something in the contents of this item. Shame I really liked the smell.
He did say that it really cleaned his skin well with the little exfoliating beads within the gel and it felt good for a short while until his skin started to itch like crazy. Unfortunately he has had to stop using this product.
He has used other Lynx shower gels and has not had the same result so he will stick to the chocolate version of gel that Lynx produces as this is one he can use. Although I did not prefer the smell.
Sad but true.
Priced at 99p at the moment in Morrisons on offer but regularly around £2.99 not bad given the budget is on the move again.
Like most, I end up working through a couple of Lynx shower gels in the months after Christmas. Looking at the florescent orange liquid and reading of the "Brazilian Hot Mud and Red Dragonfruit extracts" it's safe to say I wasn't expecting anything other beyond being blinded by the colour and dazed at the exotic marketing ploys.
I have to say that I was positively surprised after using. The liquid pours easily out of the bottle which I liked, and I was surprised to find that the shower gel consisted of a solution of small beads, meaning that it also exfoliates your skin.
I also loved the scent of this shower gel; the strong sweet smell of oranges really felt refreshing and different - and invigorating! On the downside it smelt a bit artificial and cheap - kind of like when fake orange flavouring is used in confectionary. But, the smell doesn't linger for long after use.
I always find it difficult to judge the cleaning performance of shower gels, however I think the exfoliation alone does a good job of keeping your skin clean. I think the shower gel would be best used with a shower puff or sponge to get the best effect.
Overall I really enjoyed using this product and I'm tempted to pick up some more - and I never thought I'd be doing that after working my way through another gift set. I just wish the scent was a little more manly, as I can only think that this is why girls aren't yet stripping off and swooning towards me as the adverts would suggest. Typically Lynx shower gel retails for around £2.50, however it is normally possible to find it on offer (recently for £1 in some supermarkets).
Lynx Fever shower gel
Who doesn't take a shower these days and doesn't use shower gel? Well I hope everybody does and I love the shower gels of Lynx and with most shower gels I just know you can't really go wrong with lynx. I like the look of the bottles and normally they have a really nice smell and are nice and fresh. When I was younger we always had Lynx, so it must be why I am positive about them.
All the bottles of Lynx shower gel have the same shape, it's only the colour that separates them from each other. The Lynx Fever shower gel has an orange colour, which makes it stand out from the rest. I think colour wise it's my favourite because it's very colourful and I just love the colour orange.
The bottle it self is transparent, so the shower gel is actually orange. The bottle itself is really nice and flat on the bottom, but the sides are designed that your fingers fits right into it. This way you have a firm grip when you are in the shower. Quiet handy actually.
The shower gel is quite thick, but easy to get out of the bottle and to wash it off in the end. The scent is very fruity and quite strong actually but still maintaining a manly scent. It's very refreshing while using it in the shower and it gives me a very tropical feeling, which is not surprising because it contains Brazilian Hot mud and red dragon fruit extract. It's a strong scent, but nice and stays for you a little way, even when you got out of the shower.
The shower gel is called Fever, which I think it means you should get hot while using it. The shower gel contains Brazilian Hot mud and red dragon fruit so it does gives you this tropical feeling. I like the shower gel on my body, but it doesn't really do anything special. It doesn't give me a warm nice feeling or anything. It's more the scent that does it for me.
I like this shower gel and it gives me a nice feeling in the morning with the freshness. The shower gel smells nice but also important it really gives me a clean feeling. It doesn't make my skin dry and the shower gel is easy to wash off. So I would definitely recommend this shower gel!
