Advantages: a nice gimmic
Disadvantages: hard to get out towards the end
After just finishing off the second bottle of this or should i say packet as it comes in a soft plastic packet like you would expect a drink too i thought it was about time i reviewed it and let you know what i thought of it.
I have never seen any other company make shower gel in a packet like this so it is a nice gimmic to try, i say gimmic as i still prefer the traditionl bottle of shower gel to this style of packaging as although the packet looks funky and has some funny things written on it it is very difficult to use towards the end of the pack, you need two hands to squeeze out the shower gel so i had to resort to squeezing it onto a sponge rather than into my hands.
The packet i have just finished using tonight is mango and macadamia which claims to be nourishing to your skin and i cannot deny this at all, it doesnt lather aswell as others i have tryed and has a rather creamy consistency to it but it does leave my skin feeling very soft and as though it has been moisturised aswell, this saves time after a shower as i have no need to moisturise my skin aswell with this which is great.
The mango smell in this is very strong when you use it and does leave your bathroom smelling lovely, it lingers on your skin after too but isnt too strong so wont over power any perfumes you want to wear, i have no idea what macadamia smells like so cannot say that this is a strong smell here as i cannot smell anything other then the mango.
The packet is quite a comical pack with there being a square on the front saying SERVING SUGGESTIONS massage gently onto wet skin to create a luxurious lather, rinse, then pat dry with a large fluffy towel. Under neith this it says best before your skin feels neglected.
I have had a lot of comments from guests about this wholst it has been sitting on my bathroom shelf and very few had seen this before, i got mine from poundland for you guessed it £1 it contains 250ml of shower gel and tells me to use it within 36 months of opening but this only lasted 10 days in our house.
I wouldnt say i wouldnt buy it again at the price i payed for it but woulnt pay the £2 to £3 price tag it has else where.
Summary: a good gimmic at the right price
