Lynx Twist Shower Gel
Advantages: Refreshing fragrance
Last week I purchased a bottle of Lynx Twist shower gel from Wilkinsons in Motherwell. All their Lynx shower gels were only £1.98 and, as they're £2.50 in Tesco at the moment, I decided to buy a bottle. I was drawn to this one because I've never tried it before and I liked the advert for it (http://www.lynxeffect.com/#/lynx_twist/twist.aspx ). I am quite pleased with what I got and I'm glad I chose this one as it smells quite nice.
What's special about this shower gel then? Well, Lynx Twist changes fragrance during the day. As with most Lynx products, it's advertised as being beneficial to a man's sex life. In this case, the advert implies that this shower gel will keep women interested as they like change.
I usually don't like the smell of men's shower gels as they are mostly very strong, overpowering scents. With Twist, however, I quite liked the initial fragrance. It doesn't say what it's meant to smell like but I think it's quite fruity. About an hour or two after I got out the shower I did notice I smelt slightly different but I wouldn't say the change in fragrance would be enough to "keep women intrigued". According to the Lynx website, the fragrance "evolves woody accents" which I suppose is accurate as the new scent does have a sort of woody element to it but it's still not that strong.
==How does it affect your skin?==
Since I began using this shower gel on Monday, I've noticed my skin is a lot smoother. On Wednesday, a pen exploded in my pocket and my leg got covered in blue ink but it didn't take long to wash off with this, whereas when I've used other shower gels to remove pen marks it can take quite a while and never removes it completely - it always takes more than 1 wash before it disappears.
I've said that it both refreshes and moisturises your skin as it leaves it feeling soft and clean and it smells great all day.
Unlike some other Lynx shower gels, like Fever which is a vibrant orange, you don't see the colour until your using it. Twist is a dark lime green colour. The shower gel does smell like lime ("fruity" I said above, it's definitely quite citrusy) so this colour is appropriate. However, I did find this slightly unappealing as things like vomit and gunge on TV are usually green.
Lynx Twist is a great shower gel, and it's definitely worth the money. I'd recommend it to any man but don't be expecting it to drastically improve your love life.

Summary: A good quality men's shower gel with a nice scent.
