Tesco Shower Creme Magnolia & Silk
Advantages: Price, smells nice, smooth on skin.
Disadvantages: See review.
The Tesco creamy shower wash with magnolia and silk is one of the hundreds bottles which crowds my bathroom.
It is one which is bought frequently from Tesco and continues to be a favourite in our household.
This bottle is currently sold for about 72p (at a memory guess) for a decent sized 500ml bottle.
The price was the original reason we began to purchase this shower cream as it's perfect for the on budget occasions we all go through.
Other, well known brands can be found for just around 50p more, but when looking at these I noticed you get about half the size, so is it worth it?
I wasn't very excited to see this shower crème in our bathroom next to our others which are well known, popular good quality shower washes. I didn't really expect much from a Tesco brand yet gave it a try anyway.
I was pleasantly surprised when using this shower crème to be honest.
The smell was the first thing I noticed with this bottle, it is quite strong and didn't reflect my expectations at all.
The smell reminds me of the usual 'Dove' fragrance most of us know which to me smell quite soapy. This shower crème really does smell soapy yet with a slight hint of floral to it.
The 'magnolia and silk' advertisement is probably just a random name tag, or to reflect the colour of the liquid because it doesn't fit with the smell of the crème at all.
Magnolia and silk makes me think of soft, smooth and simple which is what I thought I got with this crème. The liquid is very soft to my skin and easy to spread over your body.
When I use this shower crème, I find it runs out very quickly so its not always very easy to just take out a little bit to use. The liquid itself is quite thin which gave me the instant impression that it wasn't of very good quality.
The liquid does foam up well however which is all I really care about when finding a good shower crème. When the liquid is rubbed between your hands- For a short while as it is hard to keep the liquid from dripping away- it is then easy to create a foam when rubbing over your skin.
I find it bubbles up well without the need of a sponge which is good for me as I don't like using sponges, I feel they make my skin itch!
This shower wash is called 'creamy' shower wash which is really what it is. It is very smooth, silky and I love how easy it spreads over my skin.
After using this shower wash, I feel I have had a good clean which is always an important factor when I am considering which shower wash to use after a trip to the gym.
My skin feels moisturised and the shower wash isn't too harsh on my skin which I love as it means I don't suffer from itching after showering which I get a lot.
A 500ml bottle used between 3 of us lasts for about 3 to 4 weeks. I feel however that most is unfortunately waste down the drain from the liquid being so runny! If it was thicker it would be a lot easier to just take a smaller amount to use.
Although, a months supply of shower wash for less than £1, I can't really complain.
The shape of the bottle is the same as the older version, however it now has a blue lid matching with blue font on the bottle. The text now says 'Creamy Shower Wash' rather than 'Shower crème' which I think is a positive change as it sells the bottles better.
The lid has a snap close tongue on the top which is very firm. The lid is easy to lift and closes with a snap and we have never had any problems in terms of it leaking.
However, the hole on the bottle is quite large compared to other shower creme's I have used and when the lid is left open, water can gather inside causing the top layer of the crème to become even more watery.
The size of the hole is probably where the manufacture could begin to improve this bottle. If the opening was smaller, it would be a lot easier to squeeze out a smaller amount of crème.
This shower wash does have it low points, but when comparing them to the price I can't really complain
Tesco Creamy shower wash is;
* Kind to skin
* Smells nice
* Doesn't dry out or irritate my skin
* Is cheap!
* Comes in a decent sized 500ml bottle
* Has a decent snap close strong lid
I will buy this again.. And again... And again, because the price is too good not to.
Thankyou for reading, I also post on Ciao
Summary: A decent shower wash.
