Adidas Pure Game Gift Set.
**** Packaging ****
The deo body spray and the shower gel are packaged in plastic casing to hold them in place and stop them falling about in the box. The box is designed to hold them both without using too much packaging. The outside of the box has the picture of the deo body spray and the shower gel on it along with how much liquid is in each bottle. The top of the box has a flap that you can easily open without having to rip through the box to open it. It's small and compact, so it's easy to fit into a little bag and easy to wrap up if given as a gift.
**** Contents ****
The gift set comes with a 150ml body spray and a 250ml shower gel. Both in smart looking tubes with the Adidas logo on.
**** Deo Body Spray 150ml ****
The deodorant is the first thing you're likely to notice in this little set, it's green with 'Adidas Pure Game' written in black along the front and has a black cap with the Adidas logo on it in white. The whole reason for the green is that it is infused and mixed with lots of different ingredients such as Basil and Pepper, Tonka, Aromatic Lavender and Wood Accord. All of which are mainly natural. The smell of it is very masculine, and so unique you can tell it apart from the other Adidas deodrants and is rated one of the most popular.
It does not cause white marks on the clothes, and is very easy to work with, it does not feel damp and is very long lasting. every time you sweat you don't smell bad, you get the essence of the spray come through which leaves you confident
It is easy to spray and comes with a twisty lock on it so no little fingers can get in to it and spray it! :)
**** Shower Gel 250ml ****
The bigger tube of the two, the shower gel is in a clear container with the green liquid inside. This is footballs signature mens fragrance after it was released when Africa held the World Cup in 2010. It comes out of the tube very well when squeezed and has a clicky cap so you always know when it's sealed and it does not leak! it has a very masculine and sweet smell, and again you'll always tell the difference from the other Adidas ranges. After putting this on in a shower, the smell stays on your skin, so you feel fresh and clean. it lathers up very quick and easy and a little bit goes a very long way.
**** My Opinion ****
I buy this set year in, year out for people like my brother or a little present for my boyfriend as it's just a little cheap but very worthy set. I couldn't believe that this set ranges from only £5-£8 (in the 3 for 2 offers in Super drug around Christmas) for something so wonderful. I'd easily pay £15 for this. Had no problems with it at all. it's A Class.
The Shower Gel and Deodorant box set seems to of become a staple part of the presents I receive at Christmas. I'm not sure if it is my family trying to tell me I smell, nonetheless, the products do come in handy and the box sets are always nice presents to receive.
This year I was given the Adidas Pure Game Gift set, which contains a bottle of shower gel and a can of deodorant. I have thrown away the box, but I remember that it came in a black and green box that was much bigger than the products inside.
The deodorant can is green and black with the Adidas logo prominently on the front and "Pure Game" underneath it. It says that it is a "Deo Body Spray" that gives you 24 hour freshness. The can contains 150ml/96g of deodorant and is 15cm tall and 4.5cm in diameter. There is no suggestion on the can to what the scent of the spray is, however when you spray it, there is a noticeable scent to it. I can't quite work out what it is, but it does smell quite manly.
The shower gel comes in a clear plastic bottle with a black lid on the top. The bottle seems to of been designed to have a slight ergonomic fit to your hand and has a grippy texture on the sides that makes it less slippery when wet. It has a big prominent sticker on the front that shows the Adidas logo, "Pure Game" and states that it contains Guaiac Wood extract. The bottle is 16.5cm x 7cm x 3.5cm and contains 250ml/8.4 fl oz of translucent green shower gel. On sniffing the gel, it has a noticeable and refreshing fragrance that smells nicer than other shower gels I have used before. It has a similar scent to the deodorant which make the two very complementary. I have been using this for the past week and have found it to work very well in the shower. I have only had to use a small amount for it to lather up considerably and it cleans very well. It washes off quite easily with just a spray of water and it leaves your skin clean, fresh and soft. I have not had any problems with it drying out or making my skin itchy at all.
As a gift set, these two products complement each other very well. Looking online, a set like this would cost you about £4, but to buy the products individually would be £2.34 for a similar Adidas deodorant and £2.24 for a similar shower gel. I don't think I would want to pay for the price for the shower gel as you can buy other shower gels that work just as well for a much cheaper price, however I could be tempted to buy another can of the deodorant as it is similarly priced to what I use at the moment.
Overall I will give it 4/5 as the price of the shower gel individually has put me off buying it again, apart from that, the deodorant and shower gel are brilliant.
Thanks for reading my review.
