      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ideal for Teenagers

      I was recently given a bottle of this Orange Tango Shower Gel by a friend to try. When using it the gel was not sticky or runny and only a small amount of the gel was needed as it foamed very well. My skin was left feeling really clean, and like all citrus based scents it left me feeling wide awake (I guess that is the invigorating explosion).

      With only a small amount needed for each wash, it goes along way so I guess it woud be better value for money than some other brands.

      Unlike other orange shower gels this had a very distinctive artificial "fizzy" scent (very similar to Tango) which would put me off purchasing further bottles for myself. However, it is a very good idea for teenagers who are "scared" of washing and would be attracted by the very eye catching with a detonator suggesting an explosion of orange!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It doesn't live up to it's initial appeal.

      I bought this product recently because it was on offer. I have to say I am usually lead by price when it comes to shower gel but I always go for the fruity options rather than the herbal/creamy shower gels.

      To start off with, it smells amazing. I love any shower gel that smells fruity and fresh. It reminds me of summer and I like the smell to stay in the bathroom after it has been used.

      However, once you have got out of the shower the smell starts to disappear... Usually I like the fact that I am left with fresh and fruity smelling skin whereas this didn't leave any trace.

      It is a bit of a disappointment to be left with nothing when you get such an initial burst of freshness when it is first opened. The was what made up my mind to buying this product as I always have a sniff in the shop!

      I would definitely not buy this again even if it was one of the cheaper options.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great for use by all

        As a family of five I find space is limited so if I can replace many purchases with just one I will do so and for shower gels we only now buy this as it's great for all. I have 3 sons under 8 and none are keen lovers of hygiene but with this product the vibrant colour and well known name as well as the tantilising smell entices even my sons to actually want to wash! The bottle is large and for the 5 of us showering every day it will last around a fortnight which I think it absolutely brilliant and unlike many others that we have tried.
        There is a full range of the tango shower gels but this frangrence is our favourite and the one that we stick with. Available in all supermarkets and department stores it is easily accessible and priced perfectly right, very happy with this find.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A really worthwhile buy.

        Fresh and invigorating! Just what you need in a shower gel. This product is a great buy for anyone, it smells good and it does exactly what you want a shower gel to do. I swear by it most mornings. I have been using it for about 3 weeks after I bought it on amazon because I felt like trying something new.
        The packaging is strong and the branding makes you feel like you want to buy the product as it looks like the type of product that you want instantly, as it has the cool tango appeal. After a while you might think it looks a bit cheap and not as good as more luxury items but it is still worth trying.
        I would recommend this product as when you have used it you step out of the shower feeling fresh and clean, it is exactly what you need on these cold winter mornings!!
        The product is relatively cheap so it is well worth the cost, and a small pea sized amount goes a long way so it will last you.
        I think this is a must buy product for anyone.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          For a pound, it's perfectly reasonable.

          I often pop into poundland when I'm in town, and one of my latest purchases has been this Tango Invigorating Shower gel, which comes in Orange, Apple, and Cherry varieties, with each containing Aloe Vera.

          I was attracted by the very vibrant packaging - a clear plastic bottle with a nice black lid, and a black and pinkish red label - the colours are the same you'd expect to see on a can. The bottle allows you to see how much gel (which is a vibrant red) you have left, and has handy finger indentations in the side making the bottle easy to grip even with wet hands. It also comes with a handy flip top lid which can be opened with just a quick flick of the thumb.

          The gel is easy to dispense - it's probably a touch more watery than I was expecting, but no so runny as to mean I end up with it going everywhere or with too much in my hands. It has a very strong cherry scent - it's a little artificial perhaps, but I still like it.

          It lathers up nicely, with a fair amount of bubbles, and feels really gentle and soft on the skin. Rinsing off is easy, and it leaves a very light cherry fragrance behind on the skin, though this is quick to fade which is a little disappointing.

          My skin feels soft and clean after this, though I have to confess I haven't really felt 'invigorated' any more than I normally would after a shower.

          Overall, for the cost of a pound, there is nothing to moan about - it gets me clean, smells nice, and doesn't irritate my skin. I wish perhaps the scent lingered on the skin longer, but that's only a small niggle, and certainly not enough to stop me buying this again. 4 stars.

          Tasty shower version of top fizzy drink. Gently cleansing gel with rich citrusy lather. Try it!

          It's been a while since I tasted Tango. Imagine my surprise when I saw my favourite childhood drink had morphed into a shower gel! Having been hit by strange orangeade cravings since morning, glimpsing a big fat bottle of it on sale for 99p was like all my Christmases come at once.

          So how does it work? It suds up very quickly with a tiny amount of gel. Given that it comes in a hefty - but pretty ergonomic - 400ml bottle, it can really go the distance.

          The formula feels really cleansing on the skin, and the citrusy, somewhere-between-Tango-the drink-and-natural-orange-essential-oil scent just adds to that. By the way, the citrus burst you get once it hits the water in a hot, steamy bathroom is just delicious. You can almost drink it in the air.

          It has added aloe vera, but it's not super-hydrating. Then again, it doesn't dry out your skin, either. It just leaves it feeling super-refreshed with a delicate, tangy fragrance. I used it at night and I could still smell the same light, fresh scent when I woke up.

          And it's an all-rounder: I grabbed it in desperation when I ran out of shampoo and - to my eternal surprise - it didn't dry out my hair, or leave an icky residue. Just as gently and efficiently cleansing as it was on my skin, with the same fresh scent.

          Putting this fizzy drink in a shower gel was an excellent crossover idea. I wish they made a body lotion version so I could smell like Tango all day.

          One I won't buy again

          Whilst browsing around Pound land my other half spotted this shower gel. You can get the tango shower gel in 4 scents, orange, lemon, cherry and apple. We opted for the orange flavour. I was a bit dubious as I thought it was a bit of a gimmick but went for it to keep the man happy.

          The shower gel comes in a bottle which has curved edges making it easy to hold, grip and squeeze out the gel when you are in the shower with no slipping or sliding.

          The best way to describe the scent of this product is the smell of orange jelly. It smells very artificial and exactly like jelly cubes. Although it is not a fragrance I would normally go for or particularly like I do think it would be a good shower gel to use in the mornings to give your senses a bit of a boost.

          When applying the shower gel onto the skin it feels a bit slimy and takes a little bit of work to get it into a decent enough lather. However when it does lather it feels nice against your skin and quite moisturising. This is due to the aloe vera.

          I also found that because the shower gel didn't lather easily I was using more than I would do normally making the shower gel less cost effective for my personal needs.

          After washing the shower gel off and getting out of the shower the smell just seems to completely vanish. I can't smell any trace of it on my skin whatsoever. My skin still feels soft but no orange scent remains. I was not particularly fussed about that as I much prefer the scent of my various lotions and potions that I apply after the shower anyway.

          As I mentioned previously we brought this from Pound land yes it was a pound. I do not think I would buy this again as I think there are better shower gels that are available. Despite the shower gel being quite moisturising it just isn't enough to make me repurchase.

          Great smell, works wonders

          I bought this for my boyfriend as a bag filler for his birthday, it was meant to be more of a joke but has turned into a tradition. HE LOVED IT! He is a big fan of Tango, so it was supposed to be a joke, but he decided to use it and it smells divine! Just like a real can of Tango! We were both so astonished by it, plus it cleans really well and doesn't leave greasy feel to the skin. And isn't too bubbly, the smell is neither masculine or feminine, so we can both use it, which is handy in a rush! It is now in the regular shopping basket when we run out, because we both love it so much, and the smell of the soap lasts all day, so you can smell nice and feel refreshed all day long, which is fantastic in my eyes!

          Disadvantages

          amazing smell, but not good enough to serve the purpose of a shower gel.

          Upon seeing this product in the shop at £1 i always wondered what it would be like. Everytime i walked past it on the shelf i'd smell the various flavours and say how strong they smelt and how good it would be to smell that good after getting out the shower/bath but never actually proceeded to buy one. I actually received this product after asking my boyfriend to grab some shower gel on the way home from work and he turned up with the apple version of this! (I LOVEEEEE APPLE!) I was actually really excited to try this as the anticipation had built up for so long and i just hadn't got round to getting some. It was one of those products that you see but you just never buy for some unknown reason. However, after actually using this product i hate to say that it really was an anti climax. The shower gel has a jelly like feel to it and doesn't actually sink into your skin - rather just sit on it. I feel like this product doesn't really foam up or give suds and mainly CLEAN! Like you would expect a shower gel would. I was very disappointed as i had high hopes for this product. I have since tried all the other flavours to see if the quality differed between flavours but unfortunately they were all the same. As much as i wanted it to, this product really didn't work for me. However, in future i might just spend the pound to get it for the smell!

          Worth a try to encourage teenagers into the shower

          My teenage daughter persuaded me to part with £1 for a bottle of orange Tango shower gel, one of several items I would not normally have chosen whilst shopping alone! The local pound shop had a couple of other fragrances too, my daughter chose the orange one as she loves to drink orange Tango.

          The shower gel comes in a 400ml bottle with handy finger grips on the side to help to stop you dropping it. It might benefit from having a hook on the top so that you could hang it up in the shower cubicle.

          I used the shower gel first and found the smell of it was really artificial and sickly, it lathered up fairly well but I did not feel that refreshed as the aroma was so unappealing.

          My daughter was keen to try it but made the same comment about the scent, she also said it felt sticky on her skin.

          We both have sensitive skin and I have to say that the shower gel did not irritate at all.

          All in all, it is fairly good value at a cost of £1 for 400ml.

          Anything that persuades a teenager to have a shower is alright by me!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          An OK shower gel but not the best.

          I was buying some drinks from poundland as it always works out cheaper getting the smaller bottles from here rather than a newsagents when I saw these Tango shower gels. I hadn't seen them before and decided I had to try one after smelling them.

          The Tango shower gels come in 400ml bottles and come in orange, green and red. They're similar to the drink flavours, apple, orange and cherry. I opted for the apple as it was the nicest smelling one. It comes in a see-through bottle with a black flip lid allowing you to see how much you've got left and use the product easily. The Tango logo is written on the front in big black letters similarly to howi t is on the cans.

          The shower gel itself is quite a bright green colour and a good consistency, not too runny but not too thick either. It has a strong apple smell which smells just like the Tango apple that you drink. I use this by wetting a scrunchie in the shower and squirting a generous amount onto it before working it into a lather on my body. It does lather but not as well as some brands that I have used before. The apple smell is still identifiable but not as strong as when you smell it in the bottle.

          The shower gel is OK. It doesn't leave your skin feeling paticularly soft or really clean but it does lather a little bit and it smells quite nice while you're using it. Unfortunately the smell doesn't linger after your shower though.

          Overall, I don't think I'll buy this again. It smells so nice in the bottle you'd think you can drink it but it doesn't leave me feeling really clean like I think I should after a shower. I prefer products like Dove or radox that lather better. For the price though, it's worth trying to see for yourself as you might like it. I've only seen it in poundland so far but it might become available elsewhere in future.

          Disadvantages

          would not use this product again

          I saw the bottle of tango orange shower gel in my local pound land and I thought I would give it a try. I had seen it in there for quite a little while and always picked it up then put it back down again but one day I decided to keep hold of it and try it out. I paid £1 for a 400ml bottle. They also had an apple flavoured shower gel as well.

          It came in a clear, plastic bottle with finger grips on one side. The bottle had a black lid which sealed firmly so none could spill out if the bottle was knocked over. It had a label on the front of the bottle which had the brand of the product, the flavour of the product and a small description of what the product was. The label was orange and black and had a picture of an orange on it. there was also a label on the back which had all of the relevant information on it eg. ingredients, directions of use and company contact information. Through the plastic bottle you could see the bright orange contents.

          The product itself was bright orange in colour and had an average consistency for a shower gel. I like fruity smelling shower gels so I thought this would be great, but when I smelt it I soon realised I was wrong. The smell was very rich a and sickly. It did however smell exactly like the drink. The smell of it made me feel sticky before I had even poured it out of the bottle.

          When I was next taking a shower I reluctantly squeezed a generous helping into my hand and rubbed it over my body. It took quite a lot of the shower gel and even then it didn't lather up that well so it didn't last that long. I wasn't too worried that it didn't last very long and was glad when I had used it up.

          I'm glad I only paid £1 for it and would not buy this product again. Tango should stick to what they are best at, drinks.
