      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great

      I bought this whilst I was working away in Greece and I was first attracted to the bottle design & colour it stands out.

      They say "there is nothing quite like the Lynx effect" and that is quite true with this one, one of many in the Lynx bodyspray and shower gel family.

      Lynx, also known as Axe outside of the UK, has been around for 30 years so it makes me feel confident that's its a decent & also safe product to use, it's also part of the Unilever group which owns many other famous brands like Dove, Hellmans, Lux, PG Tips, Ben & Jerrys... I like it being part of a big group as it gives me confidence in the product.

      The scent of this shower gel is a mix of citrus scents and it makes you feel refreshed as soon as you apply it to yourself in the shower leaves you feeling refreshed and remarkably clean.

      Highly recommend

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      good value shower gel

      I have Lynx shower gel in my bathroom on the sink to use as soap at the moment and I also use Ted Baker Hair and body wash as my shower gel, they were both presents. I also have Nivea silver protect shower gel wash which I have not used yet. I have used the both shock and recover Lynx gels every day as they are cheaper and more for every day use.

      The yellow Recover gel is almost empty and I have used it for the both the shower and washing my hands ( as I do not like soap). It comes out of the bottle quickly and hasn't gunged up to much and it doesn't flood out so that you lose half of it either. It feels refreshing and lathers just enough but it also feels a bit chemically and strong, I may be a bit sensitive though!

      The official sales tag from Lynx for Recover is -
      'Lynx Recover helps you go from rough to ready in a matter of seconds.
      It's specially-formulated fragrance fuses together citric scents to leave you feeling refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to take on the world - perfect for the morning after the night before.'

      I would say the smell or fragrance is not as good as the Lynx Africa which I think had a aftershave type scent to it, this one was milder and didn't last.

      The bottle is 250 ml and is sometimes on sale for £1 or 3 for 2 but otherwise £2.40. There are a number of sodiums listed in the ingredients including sodium benzoate, hydroxide and chloride I'm not a scientist but it sounds like you shouldn't use to much of this and be careful if you have sensitive skin.

      My overall impression is that it is a good value shower gel that appeals mostly to men and probably younger men. I am lucky to get bought masses of the stuff every Christmas by aunts and cousins so have in effect a lifetimes supply !

        Disadvantages

        Ok product

        Every Christmas my husband recieves a wash bag with shaving cream, shower gel etc. Unfortunalty he is more of a good old fashioned soap kind of guy, so never uses the shower gel. This year he recieved a Lynx kit which contained a bottle of Lynx revive. One day I ran out of my own gorgeous girly flowery type gel. I set off in search for a spare in the bathroom cupboard. There were no gorgeous girly ones so this was my only alternative.

        *Bottle*

        As you can see by the photo the bottle is very masculine with its black heavy lid and wiggly shape. It is made from squashy see through plastic so you can see the gel inside. The gel is lime green and bubbly. It reminds me of some kind of Ninja Turtles style slime. It does look a very refreshing colour and fits well with the 'revive' name. The bottle has indents on side too fit your hand, and also has lots of bubbly bits for extra grip. This is good for when your in the shower and things get a bit slippy.

        *Contents*

        When you squeeze the bottle the gel comes out at the perfect speed. It is very thick so you only need a small blob to create a wonderful foamy lather. I was very surprised at this because most shower gels and bubble bath don't even make one tiny pathetic bubble in my bath.
        When applied to the skin it make it feel nice and soft. After about an hour of washing the softness has dissapeared, which is kind of dissapointing.

        *Smell*

        There is nothing women like better than a nice clean smelling fella. This will not get you there. The smell is far from unpleasent but does have hints of Fairy liquid. It has a weak lemon scent. I suppose this is meant to be the Revivng part, but it does not wake me up in the morning. Maybe if the smell where a bit sharper then yes. I was also dissapointed as the smell isn't so bad and I would like to have smelled it for longer. But as soon as you wash the bubbles away the smell goes with it.

        *Price*

        You can buy this from the internet for £1.75 which is a complete rip off. I expect it can be found in most discount or pound shops for £1 or less.

        This is good for your average i'm not fussed shower gel and does the job well. But from a female perspective I would not but it again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Another good Lynx product

        Some of the most recent Lynx shower gels to hit the market have been fantastic and make showering a pleasure leaving your skin feeling and smelling great. I previously bought and used the Fever variety but most recently have been using Recover. This brand is instantly recognisable from the shape and style of the bottle and the lettering on the label. My only real grievance is that I think it would be better if the flip catch lid was on the base so remaining gel when supply was getting low could drain to the bottom and be easier to extract.

        I took a glance at the Tesco website as I often do and this 250ml bottle is £2.37 online but I purchased mine for less than two pounds in Waitrose of all places would you believe. The gel is quite thick and you can make this last quite a while if you use it sparingly but I am terrible at this and get through far too much shower gel for my own good. It feels good on my skin and lathers very nicely as you would expect from a Lynx product such as this. The item is titled Recover and in my opinion it does live up to its name as in the morning before work if I am tired showering with this does help me to feel more awake and ready for the day ahead firstly because it feels great in the way it refreshes my skin and also the fragrance is sensational.

        The smell is very strong and yet extremely pleasant, it exudes lemon, lime and citrus type notes and in all honesty after some thought I realised that it reminds me very much of the smell of the Citrus flavoured Oasis drink. A great characteristic of the Lynx gels is that the scent seems to linger on your skin throughout your day which is extremely brilliant and only encourages buying these again especially when on offer and also trying the other types in this range.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A stimulating shower gel with a great fragrance that gives a boost to your day.

          Introduction

          I received a couple of bottle of this shower gel for Christmas and have recently gotten around to trying it out. I am usually a big fan of LYNX products as I find they make me feel good and have a lovely, long-lasting fragrance.


          Packaging and Appearance

          This particular shower gel comes in an attractively shaped ergonomic bottle containing 250ml of shower gel. It has one ridged side and one smooth side which makes it easy and comfortable to hold the bottle in the hand and to keep hold of it in the shower, even if it is wet and slippery. The gel is luminous green in colour which may be a bit garish for some people but I love; just looking at it helps you to wake up and gives you a boost! The packaging is recyclable for those of you who like to do their bit to help the environment.

          Fragrance and performance

          The gel has a clean citrusy fragrance which lasts a long time and leaves you feeling fresh and alert. A little goes a long way with this shower gel and has lasted for quite a long time compared with many cheaper shower gel brands I have used in the past. The distinguishing feature of this gel is that it contains "STIMULATING Mg-O2". While I cannot comment on the scientific basis of this claim I do find the shower gel to be very effective in waking you up in the morning (even after a heavy night the night before) and in giving you a boost when I am lethargic or flagging during the day.

          Conclusions

          Overall I highly recommend this product; it has a fresh fragrance that is effective in giving you a stimulating boost. It is commonly available online and on the high street and generally priced around the £2 mark which is more expensive than some basic brands but worth the extra in my opinion for the way it leaves you feeling.

          Lynx Recover Shower Gel

          Lynx Recover Shower Gel

          If I remember correctly the Lynx Africa Deodorant was the first ever deodorant I have ever used and I have to say I love it since then. From that moment I have been a fan of the Lynx products as I find them fresh and they smell always nice. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they also have showergel and now I also have a bottle in my shower of Lynx.

          Well 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 mostly the colour that separates them from each other. Lynx Recover Shower Gel bottle has a green colour, the brand name and product name. It does really make it stand out from the rest of the shower gels. Some of them have the boring black colour.

          The bottle is transparent which most of the Lynx shower gels are. The shower gel is actually green. 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 Lynx showergel recover is quite thick showergel but it's easy to get out of the bottle and to spread it out over your body. It gets less thicker with water and its easy to wash of in the end. I really like the scent. The scent is really fresh and fruity like lemon. It doesn't have a overwhelming scent but more a softer sweeter one. Its really nice for in the morning to wake up with.

          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. All in all a really good showergel.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Good quality gel.

            It is nice to use a nice shower gel, especially when it is on offer and this is one I have bought and tried a few times and one that I like too, I often like to try new ones if they are on special offer too and I have been trying some of the shops own branded ones and I am finding they work for my liking too but I certainly love all Linx products because they are very good value for the price.

            This one comes in a plastic bottle, it has ridges at the side and so it is very easy to hold while in the shower, it has a flip lid and so it is easy to pour onto a sponge and it has such a brilliant lather to it, the texture while on the skin feels nice and smooth, it is a lime green colour and it smells of limes too but the lime smell is not too strong that it is unpleasant, it smells nice and refreshing.

            I paid only £2 for 250ml from my local shop, which I think is an excellent price because I have often paid a little bit more in supermarkets and so I thought it was a bargain.

            The liquid gel is quite a thick one, it has tiny bubbles and when placed onto a sponge it is not runny at all, it is an extremely good quality gel and the shower smells nice and fresh for a while after using this one, which is nice in a bathroom.

            This one is designed for males but my wife has used it and she likes it too, it is not too masculine for her liking, because she loves the smell of Linx products too.

            Only a little is needed with this one as it lathers very well and it rinses off my body and it leaves my skin nice, clean and also fresh and I like the smell of the lime as it makes me feel it is spotlessly clean.

            I like this one very much, I think it is a brilliant product for both men and women, it is worth every penny, even at the original price but even better when on special offer.

            It does last a very long time and it looks nice in the bathroom too, I have found it does not irritate my skin in any way, although I do not have a sensitive skin but I think this one would be ideal for any type of skin.

            As soon as the lid has been flipped, the smell of the lime is very apparent and I recommend this one to anyone to try and I am very pleased with the results and a very good quality gel.

            I rate it 5 stars.

              Disadvantages

              .

              This was another of the Wife's bargain finds. She picked up a bottle of this in Asda about 4 months ago and I found it when I went looking in the cupboard for a new Shower Gel. She is more organised than me when it comes to knowing what I need and when.

              This is in the typical Lynx Shower Gel bottle. It isn't the shiny black plastic bottle though and this one has a green colour showing through. This is the colour of the gel, so I suppose this will stand out on the shelf ok next to all the black bottles. The Lynx branding is still easy to spot as the writing is on a black label anyway. The bottle is a slightly different shape than other Lynx bottles and it doesn't seem as ridged down the sides, which is ok for me.

              Judging by the name of this, I would guess that this is meant to help after a night on the drinking. Would this be any good/ I had images of this smelling zesty and citrussy. It is sort of. It seems quite sweet and has a Lime smell to it, which is a bit different to what I would normally use in the shower, but it was nice as well. It does smell pretty masculine and although I could say the Wife could use this, I would think it is a bit too masculine for female use.

              The Gel was thick and I got a good amount of goes of this. The wife got this for £1, so it was a bargain.

              Made me feel awake in the morning and the smell lingered a bit after washing this off. I would use this again.

              Disadvantages

              Nice shower gel

              My partner always insists on having lynx shower gels. Personally, I prefer to have baths so I dont actually own many shower gels of my own. Therefore, when I do have a shower I just reach for whatever he is currently using. The past couple of weeks it has been Lynx - Recover.

              The shower gels comes in a clear bottle which is squeezable and there is a flip lid on the top which prevents water getting into the gel. The bottle is a shape which is easy to hold in the shower and I have never found it to slip out of my hands. The gel inside is a bright lime green colour which looks fun and also quite fruity. For 250ml of the product you can expect to pay just under £2.50 however there are often offers on Lynx products such as 2 for £3.

              The bottle tells me that Lynx recover will bring you back to life. Flipping open the lid you can immediately smell the product, it smells fresh and fruity, I can detect citrus fruits such as lime and it smells very fresh and inviting.

              Using the shower gel is easy, I just squeeze a bit into the palm of my hand and then rub it into my skin. The gel lathers up really well and I have found that I don't need a lot to wash the whole of my body. The gel rinses off easily not leaving anything sticky on my skin.

              After my shower I always notice that my skin smells like the gel for sometime which is nice. I have very sensitive skin and I am pleased to say that this gel does not irritate my skin at all, instead it leaves it lovely and soft.

              I really like this product and will continue telling my partner to buy this shower gel! It is lovely and fresh and really wakes you up in the shower, it leaves my skin feeling lovely and clean and the smell is divine! Recommended, especially if you can find it when it is on offer as otherwise it is quite pricey.

                Disadvantages

                A must in the shower!

                My Fiancé Mark loves Lynx in any form, recently he's been using Lynx Recover Shower Gel.
                It comes in the usual shaped Lynx shower gel bottle and has a black flip top lid. It has a black label with Lynx Recover Stimulating Mg-O2 shower gel written on it. The label on the back has the ingredients printed on it for those who may have allergies.
                The bottle is made of clear plastic and has a wavy edge one side that looks like its meant to fit your hand. Its £1.99 from Superdrug at the moment and £2.35 from Boots for a 250ml bottle.

                The actual gel has little bubbles in it and is lime green in colour. It is quite a thick gel and you don't need much on the sponge to get loads of foam( I have used it once when I ran out of mine).

                Lynx Recover smells absolutely gorgeous! I'm talking about how Mark smells after a shower now. It has a wonderful smell of limes which is really fresh but it also has a masculine musky smell too. The combination is really nice. Masculine but fresh, lovely!. The fragrance is quite strong for a shower gel and creeps all over the house. After I had used it I certainly felt clean and fresh and although I absolutely loved the smell of this Lynx product I prefer it on Mark. It lingers on the skin for some time afterwards too.

                Personally speaking this is one of the nicest smelling shower gels for men on the market. And I would recommend any man to try it and ladies, treat your man to some. You wont regret it!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  A good shower gel

                  I find lynx recover shower gel to be an ok brand at a good price. They usually cost £2.29 in Superdrug, but usually two for £3 offer in Morrison's. The smell of the shower gel, no matter which one is always nice, but you can not actually smell it much once your finished washing, so there's basically no point in using it. However, it does later up well so maybe I just need to use more for the smell to last longer.

                  The look of the bottle is good and modern. It is shaped well which makes it easy to hold, which is good when your hands are wet. However, it does fall from the shower quite a lot so would be better with a bit of a grip on the bottom to stop this. As the bottle is plastic and allows the liquid to be squeezed, it adds to how easy it is to use. On the other hand, when the bottle is nearly empty, the last inch or so of liquid usually does not come out.

                  The colour is very appealing as it is bright. There is also a label on the front with the logo and usually an image used to represent each shower gel. The label on the back shows the ingredients and how to use it.

                  Overall, I would recommend this to anyone wanting a cheap shower gel, with a nice sent.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Good product

                  **Introduction**

                  I have been a long time user of Lynx products and have probably tried nearly every shower gel or deodorant in their range over the years. One of the more recent Shower Gels in their range has been the "Recover". I have used this one quite a few times and after running out of Lynx Africa I decided to pick some new Lynx shower gel up from Boots as part of their buy one get on free offer on all Lynx shower gels. Having bought this shower gel today I thought back to when I last bought it and here's my review.

                  **Recover**

                  Having used this particular one many times before I was attracted to this again as I remember really liking the shower gel when I have ever used this one. Lynx Recover is marketed on it's ability to revitalise you after you've had a long day at work or for a morning shower after heavy night out. I am impressed with how well this shower gel really works. The scent is Fruity with Lime and is light enough for it to be suitable for many different preferences as not everyone likes the same strength fragrance.

                  **In Use**

                  This is a really good Shower Gel to use as you don't need all that much of it in your hands to lather over your body. It spreads well and gives you a very clean refreshed feeling after your shower or even bath. For best results I would recommend using whilst in the Shower but it works more than adequately when used during a bath instead of a shower. Great for a shower at home or a refreshing pick me up after a session in the Gym or Swimming Pool.

                  **Overall**

                  I would recommend this Shower Gel to any Man who keeps active and for anyone really who likes Lynx products. This is one of a long line of very good shower gels from Lynx and is a product that will continue to be around as it's a popular one and because of it's quality scent and the fact that it works so well. In Summary this is a highly recommended shower gel so give it a try and see what you think.

                    Disadvantages

                    great refreshing shower gel

                    Lynx recover is another shower gel from lynx, and again another one that I received as a gift at Christmas. It was part of a little lynx gift set and had already been given a lynx shock shower gel in the past this one looked pretty similar so I knew I would probably like it.

                    This one is green in colour and like many of the new lynx shower gels it has a bubbly appearance, containing little bubbles in there as well which feel fantastic on the skin when the gel in rubbed in.

                    The smell of this one is fantastic and it's a great smell to really wake you up in the mornings. it's a really strong lemon and lime scent which never fails to wake me up and make me feel really fresh after my shower. it's a great smell and I can always smell this still in the bathroom after I have come out of the shower and come back in later, which is nice as it make the whole bathroom smell nice as well as me.

                    I still haven't run out of this one yet, as I use different gels on different days as I have a few from Christmas, but hopefully ill get another set with this in after it all goes, but if not then I think it'll be one that I will buy as I really like the scent of this one.

                    4/5

                    I had never used Lynx Recover until I had it for Christmas as part of a shower gel box set.

                    I first used it the other day and I was genuinely impressed with the product. It smells nice and it looks nice. It's nicely presented and is in a nice bottle with a very secure lid.

                    It smells like lemon and limes which is a nice refreshing smell which makes your body feel all clean and refreshed. The gel itself isn't gooey and is quite easy to use. I wouldn't recommend using too much of the gel as it's quite foamy and using little portions would be more than enough to keep yourself clean and smelling nice. I know some people may be put off by the colour of the gel, which is bright green, but don't let this fool you, it means, what it's called; recover. It certainly recovers me after I have had a hard-day.

                    I would also like to mention the price of the product is very efficient, as it's not badly priced, and can be picked up for £1.50 depending on where you get it.

                    This is one of my favourite Lynx shower gels that is currently on the market with the others being Africa and Fever. Compared to the rest it's the most refreshing shower gel which I would recommend to everyone as it's genuinely a good product. Overall, I would give this a 4/5.

                    A great shower gel that does exactly what it says on the bottle.

                    I love my shower gels, and have got plenty of them. But this has to be one of my favourite. Lynx recover contains 'magnesium oxide' and they claim it "brings you back to life no matter how big the night was".

                    I enjoy a good night out, and sometimes feel worse for wear in the morning - this Lynx product is called 'Recover' and it does exactly that. I don't know whether it's the smell, or the feeling it leaves on your skin but it really does help a killer hangover (followed up by a fry-up of course).

                    The squeezy bottle is a standard Lynx design. It is see through, with bright lime liquid visible. It has a wavey design and some indents that act as finger grips to stop it becoming too slippery when using in the shower.

                    As with most Lynx shower gels, it leaves a scent lingering in the bathroom and on your body for a good couple of hours. This one smells kind of zesty/lemony and certainly makes me feel fresh and awake.

                    RRP is around £2.99 a bottle, but often in Boots/Asda and other high street supermarkets you will find BOGOFs and 3-4-2 deals.
