==Tesco Everyday Value Shower Gel==
Several times a week I enter the doors of Tescos, one because we pass it on the way home & two because there is lots of reduced stuff to pick up after school! Sometimes I go with mum & sometimes I walk there along the canal but also another option is going around town with my friend who is also a fellow bargainer like me! Well on this occasion we were walking around & I said that I needed shower gel so off we went to the toiletries aisle where I found this product sitting on the bottom of the shelf & at the cheap price for a 300ml bottle I picked one up as did my friend, then we both went & exchanged smug faces as we felt good about saving money!
Tesco Everyday Value Shower Gel can be found in many Tesco stores & online. It comes in a 300ml bottle which amazingly costs only 30p! The bottle is clear & flat on the top & bottom which is useful for when that little bit is still left in the bottle that you don't want to waste! The front label is written in lurid blue (matching the Shower Gel colour) & underneath this there a pictures of Baths, Showers, Taps, Towels, Rubber Ducks, Bubbles & Long Handled Brushes coloured in different shades of blue. Tesco say that this shower gel is '''formulated by skin care experts & approved by customers''' which might sound a little cheesy expecially for a value product. Tesco also say that this product is '''lightly fragranced.''' I would say that the fragrance isn't light at all, it's quite heavy as it lingers in the shower after use. However the fragrance isn't anyway unpleasant.
Upon opening the bottle there is a sturdy flip top lid which closes effectively too. The Shower Gel has a pleasant watermelony type fragrance, it's nice & smells like lip balm! When you squeeze the shower gel out of the bottle either onto your hand or body puff / sponge etc. the gel itself is gloopy, not silky smooth like Radox or even Sainsbury's ones. The gel comes easily out of the bottle & sits on a body puff really easily. Rubbing the gel onto your skin, you can feel it cleansing away & removing dirt away from your body & soon the gloopy blue gel turns into glorious white foam & lots of it! During the wash I always add water to the body puff & this in turn creates even more foam! The foam rinses away from my body & eventually the foam on the shower floor rinses way too & you can see all of the dirt buried in the foam.
After when my skin is dry it feels nice & clean & not sticky or unclean in any way. The smell lingers on the skin for a good hour or so after the shower & it keeps me nice & clean for a day or so.
Probably the cause of so much foam in the shower is because I use quite a bit in one go but at 30p it dosen't hurt to do so does it? The flat top is handy & the fact that it dosen't irritate my skin is good too. So would I recommend? Hell yeah!
