~~*~~*~~ Timotei Energising Orange and Mint ~~*~~*~~
~~*~~ I'm a Lady ~~*~~
Although I am most definitely female (I've got proof), I am probably the least feminine object in the world - my friends despair at my constant hoody and trainer combo but I'm happy and comfortable in my boyish ways. However, I do like to partake in bathtime and smell pretty. Unfortunately, this is what has driven me to writing this review. I purchased this in a small and rather useless pharmacy that insisted I spent £5 when all I wanted was some Tixilix for the girls as they had kennel cough - I bumped up my original purchase with a blank greetings card and a bottle of this gel because it sounded nice and I was in a rush - plus at £1.09 for 250ml, it seemed a reasonable price.
~~*~~ It's a shower gel ~~*~~
I'm not going to invest in separate shaving foam so my shower gel gets used for that (and for de-griming Puddle the Irish Water Spaniel when she's dipped herself in cow poop). A dollop the size of a £2 piece will lather up enough to cover my big ol body and will generally cover the whole of my dog when mixed with her curls - interesting stuff if you too have an 80's perm effect on your noggin.
~~*~~ Energising, my butt ~~*~~
It proclaims to be 'energising' presumably due to the inclusion of mint - the fact that there is a distinct lack of mint smell may attest to the fact that I do not feel energised after use. Neither does the Puddle. It does smell very orangey when using it but soon after, it fades and after a day's work it smells like stale sweat. I know I probably smell of stale sweat anyway in my rather pongy job but this is a strange sickly smell that I don't like. On a plus note, it doesn't seem to dry out my skin but it isn't as moisturising as other shower gels. It's a fairly nice smooth consistency without being too runny or having those horrible scratchy bits in it, and comes in a bright orange colour to prove it has seen an orange, once.
~~*~~ Ingredients and other rubbish ~~*~~
Actually to list the ingredients would be futile - does anyone really care or know what they mean - the only interesting one is glucose but since it states on the bottle that you're not allowed to drink it, this probably won't be of benefit to those in need of a sugar fix. The bottle is not particularly attractive but has an easy to use flip-top lid. This is a Timotei product from the aroma gel range - I may be tempted to try another flavour but won't be bothering with this one again. If however you'd like to make your own mind up you can find it pretty much anywhere - notably in poundland where I believe it was selling for a pound.
