      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Worth tracking down.

      Lynx have always been one of the brands I look out for when it comes to buying shower gels and deodorants. The Lynx Thai Massage shower gel was a product I used to buy, probably around the middle of last year. It is still available to purchase online but I havn't seen it at my local Morrisons supermarket for quite some time now. Coming in a 250ml size bottle this shower gel costs around the £2.50 mark and can be bought quite easily online fir this price or less. I bought this product in Poundland for £1, although it was available from Morrisons at this point also.

      The Lynx Thai Massage shower gel is like no other Lynx product I had tried up until this point. Containing tigergrass oil and Bali sea salt the shower gel is marketed as a massage for the tension in your muscles and to revitilise you ready for the day ahead. I will be honest now. I am yet to experience a Thai massage so it is impossible for me to compare the two experience - I will leave it to your judgement as to whether it measures up against the real thing or not! From my experience of the product it has always been one of my favoured shower gels from Lynx as the fragrance from the gel is very calming and soft. The aquamarine coloured gel is a stark contrast to the personality of the effect this will have on you during your shower. The Thai Massage really does relax your muscles and relieve tension. The shower gel foams up extremely well and therefore you need not use a great deal of the gel each time you shower, making your money go further.

      A lot of Lynx shower gels are either aimed at invigorating you, ready for the day ahead, or relaxing you. The Thai Massage does a bit of both really, but the calming effects are certainly worth taking note of. I have used products said to have a similar effect since, but with little result like this. I am therefore awarding the full 5 stars to the Lynx Thai Massage shower gel for its unique qualities and reasonable pricing. Finding the product may be a little more difficult, however.

      Disadvantages

      Great shower gel

      Whilst doing my shopping up Tesco's, and looking for a shower gel, I came across Lynx Thai Massage shower gel. I thought the price was fairly reasonable and I like the look and sound of the product so I decided to give it a try.

      Packaging
      This gel comes in a soft plastic bottle (so you are able to squeeze the gel out). The bottle itself is see through and it has a black lid. There is a label on the front which is black and has Lynx Thai Massage written in silver letters on it. Where the bottle is see through, you are able to see how much of the product is left which I always find very useful.

      Price
      As I mentioned I bought this product at Tesco's and here it costs £1.88 for 250ml so this is fairly reasonably priced, especially when you consider that Lynx is quite a popular named brand.

      Smell
      The smell of this shower gel is quite strong and masculine. Having said that, it is also very refreshing and certainly makes me feel really clean after I have used it. After showering, I can still smell this product on my skin as long as 4 hours after using it.

      Texture and Colour
      The gel is green in colour and has small yellow 'beads' mixed in with it. These beads pop when you are using the gel and release extra moistouriser which soaks into your skin while you are using the product. The texture is quite thick, meaning that when you go to use it, it doesn't dribble out onto your hand or run everywhere. You are able to squeeze out the exact amount that you want to use.

      About Lynx Thai Massage
      This gel has ingredients including Tiger grass Oil and Bali Sea Salt and claims to 'massage the tension out of your muscles and get ready for action' This shower gel is refreshing to use, and foams up well when you are rubbing it in.
      Although I said earlier that the smell of this is strong, it is actually stronger while you are using it and you can only smell it faintly on your skin afterwards.

      Summary
      I would recommend this product. It is reasonably priced and lasts a long time due to the fact that a little goes a long way. To top it all off, it also smells really nice and leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and refreshed.
      The only downside is that the gel can often leak over the side of the lid and then it congeals here which isn't very pleasant but I tend to wipe the lid every time I use it which prevents that from happening.

        Lynx Thai Massage.

        -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------
        Lynx Thai Massage.
        ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------
        I do like shower gels and especially from Lynx. I like the look of them and more so the smell. They are normally nice and fresh. When I was younger we always had Lynx, so it must be why I am positive about them.

        The bottles of Lynx look the same in shape, but it's more the colour that separates them from each other. This Thai Massage shower gel has a green colour with some air bubbles, which have a really nice effect. 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 scent reminds me a little bit of oriental, a little bit sweet but also nice and fresh. I really enjoyed the smell and it's a little bit addictive. The nice thing about this shower gel is that a half an hour, you can still smell the sweetness. While taking a shower it has more a fresh feeling, so it wakes me up nicely and relaxes me again for the rest of the day. The shower gel has more then 40 ingredients, including salt and god knows what they are all for, but it works!

        The shower gel is called Thai massage, which might explain the whole oriental scent, but does it really give me a massage in the morning? Well unfortunately not. The shower gel is designed to relax your skin and releases the tension of your body. Although I think it's a really nice shower gel and the scent is really nice, it doesn't really delivery on the part of the massage tho.

        Well I like this shower gel and it gives me a nice feeling in the morning with the freshness. After the shower you notice the more sweet scent, which is really nice. 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!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Massage oils are for massages, Shower gels are for showers, this is to be left on the shelf...simple

          I have no idea where it came from, or how it came to be, but a few weeks ago this seemed to magically appear in our shower, I can't remember purchasing it, and it'd doubtful my brother did either as he appears to be more Stig of the Dump every day. However as it's in the shower I use, I shall give it a test, only fair really isn't it folks, "Leave a product on show, it will be used, hide it, and it will be untouched".

          Lynx personally screams "desperate teenage boys, trying too hard, but on a limited budget for their smells, so they go for a named brand thats cheap and rather tacky". The male equivalent of the Charlie worn by teenage girls who seem to know no better. Quite why 12 year old boys bother with something so pointlessly ineffective and short lasting as Lynx body spray is beyond me, other than a clever advertising campaign they have nothing. Have you ever heard someone ask "Is that lynx you're wearing mate? I might get me some of that"?

          Anyway back to the shower gel, as I'm inching towards my 22nd year I still have the tendencies to, well, pong a bit, well...at times quite a lot. So a shower every day before work (a place in which suicide becomes more tempting by the day) is often needed to smell nice and fresh to spend 8 hours a day in an over-heated office that fails to have any operational air conditioning. Basically meaning I end up smelling like the unwashed guy I was previous to the shower anyway. So to try and keep the whiff away for as long as possible I've been using this. The gel comes in a rather bright blue-ish colour that looks like the blue Powerade drink, the actual bottle is see through though with a dark cap.

          As any good self washer will know, you step in the shower, turn it on, get it to the right temperature, squirt gel onto hands then rub into body until soapy looking marks are on the body. this starts well enough lathering up swiftly and effectively, though it has little gritty bits in, that feel like salt. this must be the massage part, sadly for Lynx anyone older than 15 will know a shower with the opposite sex applying liberal amounts of show gel to certain places feels much better if it's smooth. Salt near precious areas can be pretty painful I guess, and could block up certain areas needed for post-shower coitus.

          So it's on, allowed to stand for a while as I pick a grain or two of the solid stuff out of my belly button hair (it's as unsexy as it sounds) then washed off. Leaving me...none smelly...OK...I think it's actually done nothing here. There was no smell of sweat as their had been before the shower, but there was also no smell of the gel left on me after the shower. In fact I'm now trying to work out if it ever actually had a smell (leaves laptop to go and get the bottle to sniff it). Ok it's got a really light smell with spicy undertones, not a memorable or long lasting smell sadly.

          The bottle does on the back say "For best results get someone to give you a hand - or two!", sadly I must confess, the only ones getting the hand or two will be those who have managed to bag someone under age who knows no better. Sadly the cheapness of many of the sprays has continued with the brands shower gel, with this one anyway.

          Overall a product best steered clear of, it's unmemorable, bitty and despite lathering up swiftly, it doesn't leave you smelling nice, more neutral. Although people, like myself will spray something on top afterwards it just makes this seem like an expensive soap (even when it is on offer).

            .

            A new Lynx product that I only tried last month. I had got this as part of my Birthday things back in march, but had this at the back of the cupboard. You know when you are set in your ways and new things are something you wouldn't normally use. I ran out of my other Gel and reached for this as it was the last thing left in the cuspboard.

            This isn't the usual shiny black plastic looking bottle. This looks a bit more expensive and inviting looking. I think this was just the same price as other Lynx shower gels, which is normally £2.50.

            The gel is a light blue colour and you can see this through the bottle as the bottle is clear. It has a black plastic lid and the label is black as well, but it just looks a it nicer this way.

            The gel was quite thick and a little went a long way. I sometimes use shower gel to wash my hair although to my wife's disgust, and this washed my hair and body alright.

            The smell was still quite masculine, but it had more of a herbal, cirtus plant smell to it. The smell lingered slightly, but it wasn't overly strong.

            Although this is meant to be a massaging gel, I didn't notice any difference that way. I did feel refreshed after the shower, but then again I always do.

            A nice change from the normal ones, and I would buy this again.

            Advantages

            Won't make you a magnet to all women, will make you more attractive to your woman

            You could be in danger of expecting a lot from the marketing campaigns that surround any launch of a new Lynx product. They seem to offer a lustful fantasy land that doesn't exist, with advert aimed at the kind of monosylabic, Jack the lad kind of male that doesn't exist in great numbers either.

            But there is something about their products, something so completely unfathomable about their shower gels, that appear to actually...work...

            For a few months after using this shower gel, and being greeted so warmly from the bathroom, I started to wonder whether there was really a tangible Lynx effect.

            I had been bought a gift box of Lynx products for Christmas which included the Thai Massage Shower Gel and a black exfoliating scrubber. The deodrant had been left aside, as I already had an aftershave I was satified with, and the exfoliating scrubber has been stared at, considered, and then left on the bathroom shelf too. Every time I would finish a lengthy sing-a-long in the shower I would reemerge back into the living room and be asked if I had been using the exfoliator. No matter how much I protested that I didn't even know which way up it was, my girlfriend couldn't believe I had achieved such soft, nourished and smooth skin without it.

            About a week ago it struck me. In the middle of Killing Me Softly I noticed that there seemed to be something sharp-feeling in the shower gel, and on looking closer I noticed hundreds of little bits inside. I carried on cleaning, but after being questioned again about my silky soft skin I mentioned these mystery pieces to my better half and was told that they were also for some kind of exfoliation. Apparantly, by sheer virtue of scratching along my skin they are removing dead and rough skin - which is allegedly not so handsome - and leaving me feeling quite kissable.

            So, the mystery of Lynx is solved. Not just a company with products made for men by men, but with a subtle understanding of what women might actually want from us...

            Disadvantages

            A lovely, refreshing shower gel!

            My Step-Father loves Lynx shower gels. I have to admit I'm mainly the person that buys them for him as well cos for any occasion going he is a really hard person to buy for and besides which I adore buying toiletries and so if I see any going cheaply I always pick him stuff up! I'm like the other woman in his life and right spoil him lol.

            However the other day going to the gym I was in such a rush that I picked up his shower gel (this one!) by mistake so after my work out I stripped off, got in the shower and noticed this and thought ah I so don't wanna smell butch! However I had little choice as I was wet and stunk to high heaven of sweat so I bit the bullet so to speak!

            The Packaging....

            Clear curved bottle with finger grips for ease of use one side. Black flip top plastic lid concealing a small hole to the top of it and on the front I'm told it is Lynx Thai Massage Tigergrass Oil + Bali Sea Salt Shower Gel. On the back of the bottle I'm told a bit about the product, cautions are listed as are the ingredients, contact details or Unilver are give (the manufacturer of all Lynx products), size is stated (250ml), the recycle symbol is displayed and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice macho man looking bottle, I like being able to see the shower gel through the bottle as well!

            The Gel....

            Light green and slightly creamy looking with orange exfoliating pieces in it. Those pieces are not in abundance and are not grating on the skin at all though you can feel a gentle exfoliation going on.

            The smell of this is quite simply wonderful. Quite aftershavy as you would expect it to be of course and well blended with a nice and gentle spicy aroma to it. It's fresh and light and leaves a really clean smell on the skin for a good couple of hours after using it.

            To use this of course I'm sure most you men out there simply use your hand and rub away at yourselves! Do that though and I found that this gel doesn't lather up so well. Me, I preferred to use my trusted scrunchy and I found a blob of this to go a very long way indeed and it foamed up beautifully releasing the aroma as it went (and getting paranoid that the other women using the changing area would think a man took the wrong turn lol!).

            It was easy to use and I liked the consistency of the gel and what did surprise me was just how cleansing this was and I mean really thoroughly deep down cleansing. I use girly shower gels as a rule and feel clean after using them but with this it really did give me a deep down clean and I saw mucky coloured water actually drain away fro me! I was so shocked!

            It was comfortable to use and felt cleansing and comfortable, rinsed off really quickly and simply leaving no residue or salty bits on my skin at all and I felt fresh and revitalised!

            Verdict....

            Well not only does this get a big thumbs up from me on general ease of use and fragrance of it this left me with really clean and seriously smooth skin. I kid you not ladies I didn't need a moisturiser at all after using this as my skin felt so silky soft!

            However this is a mans shower gel fragrance wise sadly so if you want to use it do it on the quiet and when no one is about to sniff you and find out your guilty secret lol.

            Available in most good supermarkets and chemists etc priced about £2.89 a bottle but this brand is on offer rather alot so keep your eyes peeled for that!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            One of the better Lynx shower gel offerings

            As someone who is always on the hunt for toiletries that are as cheap as possible and also make you smell and look good Lynx is not usually on my list. I feel there are far cheaper brands on offer out there and as much as I can't bear to live without my Lynx deoderant I don't exactly harbour fluffy bunny feelings towards its bodywash range.

            However, if people buy me Lynx toiletry sets for birthdays and such then of course I'll use them and that's how I came into contact with the Thai Massage shower gel.

            I think the thing that attracts people to Lynx shower gels is the colour and the texture. With see through packaging you can see the thick turquoise coloured gel inside and it looks extremely inviting and different. Like the other Lynx shower gel products they come in a slightly curved and bumpy shaped bottle with a black lid which easily opens to allow you to get the gel into your hands. Upon opening the product the smell hits you instantly. Like a lot of Lynx fragrances, the smell fuels their obsession with rather exotic and different scents which makes them stand out from their competitors though as a result the outcome is very overpowering though unlike some of them the Thai Massage scent is almost fruity and doesn;t make your nose recoil in disgust or your eyes sting.

            I'n not going to insult you with instructions on how to apply shower gel so I'll skip that part...

            On applying the scrub to my body I was quite surprised as in the past when I have used Lynx shower gels they have quite often stung my skin when they made contact though the texture of this was rather runny and smooth almost like a normal shower gel. It also washes off your skin fairly easily and I was relieved that it left no stains because believe it or not the extremely powerful 'Boost' showergel from Lynx used to leaved red blotches on my skin for some obscure reason.

            I was left feeling extremely refreshed and I also found that the scent wasnt too overwhelming when you're showering and even afterwards - hours later there is still a faint trace of its smell on your skin.

            If you research some of the ingredients then you'll find that a lot of them are actually very powerful chemicals. Whilst they are all safe and are commonly used in products of this nature it's still quite shocking to see just how many go into one 250ml bottle.

            I wouldn't reccomend spending good money on this particular brand even after my somewhat positive experience of it. People will no doubt be drawn to it due to the brand name and the intoxicating scent that makes it stand out from other products on the market but I think cost wise and quality wise you're much better off shopping elsewhere.

              Give it a try and find out for yourself!

              I've used this product many times in the past. At first the texture of the little bits contained in the gel is peculiar but rest assured you get used to it. Has an overpowering yet mystically alluring fragrance that you never get tired of, and its definitley one of those products that promotes the whole 'save water, shower with someone else' ethic!

              I'm quite loyal to lynx products as they always manage to reinvent themselves and bring new ideas and fragrances to the table. This is no different! I can't really attest to the product doing too much for your actual skin apart from cleaning it and smelling nice - but at the end of the day I wouldnt expect it to anyways. Its a pleasant shower gel to use and doesn't succumb to feeling boring and 'the same' every time you use it like a few other products I've used.

              Another decent shower gel in the Lynx lineup

              I got this for xmas, and was quite surprised when i went to use it.

              Lynx has this new obsession with exotic and different exfoliation type shower gels and i must say all of the ones i have used are pretty good!

              This particular one a sweet citrus scent and i can't quite decide if i like it as a shower gel, the smell is quite nice but it ventures a bit further from what you'd expect a shower gel smell like.

              It has these small yellow bead like things inside that im assuming are meant to act like an exfoliate, which is a nice touch as it feels like your really getting rid of the dirt when having a good scrub.

              The title "Thai Massage" is quite a bold statement to be making, i'm not quite sure it lives up to those expectations. I'd be quite disappointed if i bought it based on those terms, but as a shower gel, it does the job pretty well.

              Just try it to see the difference

              Im really not the sort to care what type of shower gel he is using, as long as it gets me clean, this is how i came across this one.
              I was comping and ran out of shower gel so needed something, i didnt car what it was, it just had to be cheap and this was on offer so i bought it. Looking back on it ive never seen it as cheap as what i bought it for so maybe it was a promotion as it was new, it is more expensive than others but you do get more in the bottle.
              Anyway, about the gel, it just has a different feeling to normal shower gels. There are little balls in it which make you feel like they are rubbing all the dirt off your body as you wash, its a strange feeling but when you come out of the shower your skin does feel different to normal.
              Like i said im not one to rave about shower gel, at the end of the day you use it to get clean, however this one is different. I dont buy it now as its usually a bit too expensive, but when i see it on offer i do stock up!

              A great shower gel that leaves you clean and refreshed

              I've recently been using Lynx Thai Massage shower gel after my girlfriend came back from the Supermarket with it. I've used Lynx products before (as most guys have) and have found them to be good on the whole, but nothing to rave about. This changed when I got this shower gel - it's great! I'm not usually one to get excited by shower products, soap is soap to me, but this shower gel is different. It feels quite oily to use with small beads which I assume are the tigergrass oil capsules. It smells great and is revitalising to use, especially in the morning when no-one is at their best. This seems to be in contrast to it's advertised relaxing nature, but this is how I've been using it. Due to it's oily nature you don't need to use too much of the gel to get a good lather going and when you rinse off it leaves skin feeling soft and clean. After getting out of the shower and getting dry you still get a faint whiff of the shower gels plesant scent which stays around for quite a while. I've used a couple of bottles of this shower gel and will definitely continue using it, a great find by my girlfriend!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Light blue, beautifully scented and kind to the skin!

                Most guys have tried a Lynx product at some point or another and I have certainly found many of them to be very good but recently I came across one that is better than just very good it is brilliant. The one I am talking about is Lynx Thai Massage shower gel, it is very pleasant smelling and leaves your skin feeling really revitalised.

                The bottle this comes in is a replica of all other Lynx shower gel bottles in that it thins out from bottom to top and has ridges down one side to give you a better grip on the bottle when showering. One difference though would be that unlike most this is not in a black bottle but a clear bottle allowing you to see the blue shower gel inside.

                This gel has tiny gold balls floating through it which are designed to give you the massaging effect as you rub them over your skin and they actually do work, perhaps you could say that this does not feel like a massage but you would have to admit you can feel the balls rubbing over your skin and they do leave a tingling feeling so they are for me doing their job.

                This shower gel is gentle on your skin and does not dry it out (well it doesn't dry mine out anyway). It leaves its fragrance on the skin too which is nice and if you are like me and you prefer a bath to a shower then fear not just use this as a bubble bath and then as a body wash, it works well when used like this also.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Fresh smelling, great feeling, soft and sexy skin for girls and boys!

                My partner of seven years has pretty much always used Lynx products especially their shower gel`s. Never before have I been tempted to use one (because they are designed for men) until he bought the Lynx Thai Massage version. The very first night he went for a shower and used this I could notice straight away a strong, beautiful aroma when he re-entered the living room, I had never noticed this before with any other shower gel.

                Sometimes when he would come and sit next to me I could smell his shower gel but never on him entering the room.
                When I asked if he had used a deodorant or aftershave yet he told me he hadn`t yet it was just his shower gel I could smell. On realising how soft his skin was too I had already decided I was going to have a try at this stuff which I did and loved, we now share bottles of this always.

                THE BOTTLE

                Like all Lynx shower gels the bottle is fat at the bottom and thin at the top with bumps up one side designed to be comfortable to fit your fingers and give you a firm grip of the bottle when you are in the shower. The older Lynx shower gels like Africa and such come in black bottles but the newer versions like this one come in clear bottles to show off the bright colours of the shower gel (in this case a bright sea blue). Also evident in this shower gel are small gold coloured balls, these are designed to give the massage effect. Bottle design - 5/5

                THE MASSAGE EFFECT

                If you are going to be harsh and take the product on its word then you will feel let down because for me there is little or no massage effect from the gold balls but you do get a sort of satisfying tingle similar to after a massage, this is obviously created by the ingredients in the shower gel, such as sea salt and Tigergrass Oil. So for massage effect - 2/5

                THE SCENT

                I am fairly useless at describing or trying to describe a scent but here goes. If you could bottle exotic then this would be it, it is sweet but not too sweet, powerful for sure. When you are actually applying it the scent is a very strong oriental scent but once you have rinsed and dried the oriental back note is still there but a much sweeter scent prevails. The scent - 5/5

                EFFECT ON YOUR SKIN

                A lot of shower gels dry my skin right up and because of this I often stick to the PH 5.5 range of products which are designed to prevent this. This shower gel however does not dry my skin up at all in fact it actually leaves it feeling very, very soft and smooth which I also noticed it does to my partners skin when he uses it. As a shower gel it also needs to cleanse you properly of course and that's another thing this shower gel does very well. Just the tiniest drop of this on the palm of your hand leaves you feeling very clean and very fresh. Effect on skin - 5/5

                All in all this really is a top product and as I have proven not just for the men. It is a product designed as a male grooming product but I love it and so will many other girls I am sure. It can be used equally well as a bubble bath too girls, so if its a soak in the tub you prefer then this stuff gives you a very relaxing bubble bath also.

                Almost all supermarkets and chemists stock the Lynx range and the price of the shower gels tends to be the same. The older ones in the black bottles sell for around £1.60 whilst the newer range tends to be a bit pricier in most places round about £1.80. Asda very regularly does two for two pounds on these though so there's a real bargain to be had, I have also seen buy one get one free on these in Boots but not so regularly.

                What ever the price make sure you give this one a try I am sure both men and women will love it.

                Thanks for the read!

                  One to miss.

                  I've never reviewed a beauty product before, that's why is going to make this such a hurdle to get over. For a couple of weeks now I have been planning on reviewing Lynx Thai Massage shower gel, but haven't known how to go about it. Almost every morning I've been trying to incorporate it into my routine though, hoping it would inspire me, yet still - nothing. It just seems like any other shower gel, but it's true that this product is different, and as I slam the bottle down infront of me in a hope it makes more words spring to mind all I can think of is how this is possibly the first time I've ever had shower gel on my dining table. Ok, for the rest of the paragraph I plan on getting more on topic. I know how everyone hates that.

                  Receiving beauty packs for Christmas isn't unusual, well I hope it's not anyway as I receive them pretty much every year! This year as a stocking filler of a Lynx beauty pack I received Click deodrant (wet), Boost shower gel and of course the product of subject - Thai Massage. Why they incorporate so many different smells in one pack so you can't wear them together I don't know, but more annoyingly I'm more of a bath man than a shower man. For starters we don't even have a proper shower unit in my house, so it's more difficult to have a shower, although in the long run it's quicker.

                  In a bid to incorporate Thai Massage into my schedule as I said, I have been having showers though and even if I've had a bath - at the end of it all I've covered myself in the stuff then sunk back in the bath to clean it off. God if everyone had such a hard a way with words as me on Ciao we wouldn't get anywhere! So how does this product feel on your skin? Well lets start with first impressions.

                  You can't say it's a odd shaped bottle because all Lynx shower gels come in the same thinning then fattening bottles with a label in the middle. Thai Massage carries yellow/golden stripes with almost like 'the sun' in the middle as the logo to recognise it by, even though I never remember any of those fragreance logos. It also carries the label 'New', because well it's new. As the bottle is see-through you can see it's a aqua colour, although perhaps slightly more blue. You also notices little balls of gold in the liquid, supposedly for the massage effect.

                  I've actually got some face massaging stuff similar to this, and I remember the first time I used that my skin felt like it was new again. An experience like this for the rest of my body is quite an interesting though. Opening Lynx shower gels is easy, a black flip up lid, and I'm talking easy access even when your hands are wet. Perhaps it's not as easy as it could have been, but it's not something that causes pain like some products. Smelling the product it's hard to put your finger on it.. it seems almost sweet. I would say it's a required smell, but it's quite nice. Not the sort of thing you want to smell soloey of though, and perhaps that's why Lynx haven't put much effort into what it actually smells like.

                  The liquid appears thick, probably because of the dark colour and little golden balls for massaging in it, although by picking up the bottle and moving it from side to side you can see it's not thick at all and easily runs out with the tiniest amount of pressure upon use. Putting it on your hands and foaming it up you can feel the massaging balls, although they quickly disappear - perhaps too quickly! The product foams up well, about the same as all the other Lynx shower gels, although there isn't as much foam there as you would get from quality shower gels. You probably need about half a palm full.

                  Applying it to your body, well it would be easier for me if I had a proper shower unit to wash it off with, but asides from that it does apply well. As I said though, a little amount doesn't get far. You've really got to dedicate yourself to washing with this. For me using it has just been like using any other shower gel, and I didn't feel massaged at all. Definitly not massaged in Thailand. When using the product on my body in the bath it washes off really easy as well, but in neither case does it really leave my body smelling fresh.

                  One good thing I can say about the bottle is that I've never dropped it, definitly seems to grip well in your hand. I've been able to pick the bottle up from my bathroom and bring it downstairs without even having to clean it over as well, showing that the bottle doesn't really get dirty and dries easy.

                  The 'blurb' on the back is a little confusing. It advertises Tigergrass Oil and Bail Sea Salt as the main ingrediants (Lynx's terrible attempt at being exotic) and then says how the product is good for massaging tension out of muscles and getting you ready for action. Well I always feel ready for action after being washed in the morning, although relieving tension? I don't think so. In a comedy attempt it then says for best results get someone to give you a hand - or two. Ok, Lynx just brought it's classiest product yet down with a terrible joke.

                  Full ingrediants list reads; Aqua, Sodium, Laureth Sulfate (A) / Sodium C12-13 Pareth Sulfate (B), Cocamidoprpyl Betaine, Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Chloride, Parfum, Centella Asiatice Extract, Sea Salt, Microcrystaline Wax, Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Trideceth-9, Lactic Acid, Mannitol, Cellulose, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Tocoheryl Acetate, Triethyl Citrate, Mica, Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Talc, Benzophenone-4, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, DMDM Hydantoin, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, CI 74160, CI 74260, CI 77289, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77891. The product is dermatologically tested and pH-skin neutral.

                  For me it doesn't really feel like Lynx have accomplished anything with this product. It's an adult males product, because hopefully at their age they won't be scared off by the little massaging balls. Definitly seems like the sort of product a wife would pick up for her husband, because I know if I was shopping I would go for the traditional Lynx shower gel pretty much every day of the week.
