“ Brand: Primark / Shower Gel / Type: Shower Gel / Suitable for: Body „
Much like the previous reviewer, I too spotted this and a few others at 50p in Primark Reading. Having tried 3 different 'flavours', this one has to be my favourite. It's actually better than its body shop equivalent and is considerably cheaper!
Although not a smooth flow from the bottle - more of a gloop infact, it lathers up quickly and releases it's smell instantly. Although you do need to use quite a bit of it to get this effect and so I have been using around 1.5 bottles in 14 days, which is a lot of shower gel, if I was paying more than 50p for it I would not be impresed.
Overall a brilliant product for £1.50 or 50p, especially given it's competitor over at the body shop is £9. Although quite gloopy and therefore hard to rub onto the body and so only deserving of 4 stars.
When it comes to shower and bath products I really do work my way through them! I'm a hygiene-a-holic and love trying out new products! This usually retails at £1.50 a bottle but it attracted my attention when I spotted it reduced to 50p a bottle along with many other smelly offerings from Primark whilst out on a recent shopping trip!
I'm not a fruity aroma type of fan really when it comes to shower gels but I bought this to kick start my day being grapefruit and I did treat myself to the grapefruit body scrub too for a touch of top to tail freshness with mornings in mind like I just said lol.
250ml clear plastic bottle with a bright yellow flip top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole. Around the middle of the bottle it has a yellow paper label on it and on the front the price is stated and I'm told it is Grapefruit 'Glorious zingy & zesty bath & shower gel'. Other information on the back of the bottle includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and the size is stated and contact details for Primark are listed as well as some information given in foreign languages. It's not a bad looking bottle but there is nothing sophisticated about it really but it's informative enough to be fair to it.
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Bottle:
It's good to be alive! Brighten your day with these super zesty bubbles. Great for a 'wake up' shower or long reviving bath.
Either apply to moist skin or sponge for a refreshing, zesty, cleansing shower, or put into running water for a glorious bubble bath.
Me Using It:
Well the gel is light yellow in colour and transparent and very smooth and not too runny but it isn't a stiff gel either. You don't need loads of this to shower with at all and it lathers up very quickly into large white, rich bubbles that smell heavily and richly of zesty grapefruits. It smells incredibly of grapefruit with a hint of natural sweetness to it but it is an authentic smell!
I really like it, it refreshes me, awakens my senses and above all it is great to cleanse my skin and to use as to shave my bits and bobs with etc as it's go so creamy.
It's comfortable to use, leaves my skin feeling smooth and leaves me feeling incredibly fresh for a considerable time after using it and it leaves my skin gently fragranced for a good couple of hours after using it too.
I actually really like this and even if purchasing it for £1.50 a bottle it really is a very economical product.
It hasn't upset my skin in any way shape or form and basically it's a nice every day sort of shower gel. Course we are told on the bottle we can use it as a bath foam too and once again I have used it as this and put in a small splodge under running water and once again it hasn't let me down at all and once again softened my water a little, gave a wonderful aroma and most of all has given me rich bubbles that last the duration of my hour long plus baths!
A nice product to throw in your overflowing basket when shopping in Primark!
