“ Brand: Asda / Type: Conditioner „
I love finding a bargain, recently my friend had bought this conditioner from Asda and just wouldn't stop singing its praises, so I decided I might as well pick it up. Scent This conditioner hasn't really got a specific scent to it in my opinion, it is green in colour and it is quite thick in consistency. I would describe this conditioners scent as fresh and it does remind me of salon products, however it isn't as strong of a scent as conditioners that I usually buy. Application Applying this conditioner is similar to applying most other conditioner products. You simply apply it to your hair after shampooing, making sure that you concentrate on the tips. I found that this conditioner works best of I use a good sized dollop of compared to what I would usually use. What I Thought I really liked this conditioner. I must admit that I didn't expect this conditioner to be great as it was a Smartprice product. I found that this conditioner detangled my hair really well when I was styling it and also left my hair soft and manageable. I found that the scent of this conditioner doesn't really linger that long in my hair after use, however my hair doesn't smell bad after using it either so I am not really annoyed by this. Price and Availability This conditioner is a massive bargain at 24p a bottle, this gets you a 500ml bottle, which lasts about 10 or more washes. I think that this is a fantastic price and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice cheap everyday conditioner. Overall I think that this is a fantastic find, I am really glad that my friend recommended it as I would usually not have bought it. It smells ok, works well in my hair and is suitable for everyday use. Overall I would give this conditioner 4 out of 5 stars. *also on ciao under lorrainek90
~*~*~ Asda Smart Price Conditioner ~*~*~ ~ What is it? ~ Asda Smart Price Conditioner is a budget priced hair conditioner. It is no frills, doesn't promise huge things and is just plainly a conditioner. ~ Is it any good?/Usage ~ I have bought this a few times over the years, mainly because I tend to run out of conditioner before shampoo and I hate using just shampoo on my hair, so having this in the bathroom satisfies me that I will still be able to condition my hair even if the more expensive conditioner has been used up. It comes in a very plain white round bottle, the label around it is the typical Smart Price label of simply green and white. It has the ingredients listed on the bottle and tells us what we need to know. Having used this a few times I must say it does a very good job at conditioning my hair, I have used it for a deep conditioning treatment by plastering my hair in it and leaving it on over night ... Very atractive! And I have used it when I have run out of shaving gel for my legs, I also used it when my children had nits, I put conditioner over their hair and proceeded to go through their hair with a nit comb ... Yes I am scratching my head as I type! *shudder*! The conditioner has a small flip top lid, under the lid is a very small hole so this bottle needs a good hard squeeze in order for it to be dispensed into my hand, but when it does eventually escape the bottle, it is thick, creamy and white and has a very subtle smell to it, it just smells clean really. It feels quick thick and when I work it through my hair I notice how it really sticks to it, I leave it for a few minutes and then rinse and am pleased that my hair feels soft. After drying the results are just as good and it doesn't feel like I have used a cheap conditioner. It really works quite well. ~ Price ~ Being a Smart Price product this is only available at Asda and costs a brilliant 24p for a 500ml bottle! A real bargain! I would recommend having a bottle of this as a spare, I find it has a lot of uses and the only reason I don't use this all the time is because it doesn't have much of a smell to it. I usually buy the matching shampoo and conditioner but this is really good for the low price, there really isn't anything to complain about. Thanks for reading :o) x
I do the majority of my household shopping in either Asda or Tesco, so over the years I have tried out many of the own branded products within these stores. In Asda, they have a 'budget' range called Smartprice, which is a range that offers excellent value in my opinion. Recently I decided to try out some of the items in the Asda Smartprice range as I feel my shopping bill is increasing more and more each time I shop. I hoped that by replacing some of my regular purchases with cheaper alternatives from the Smartprice range I could save some money on my household shop. The "Asda Smartprice Conditioner" was purchased recently and this review outlines my experience. I paid only 24 pence for the generously sized 500ml bottle of conditioner, which I thought was a great value for money price. I will admit that I didn't have particularly high expectations of the product due to its low price and basic appearance. The bottle is made of robust plastic and I am able to see the pale green liquid conditioner through the bottle. The Smartprice range has undergone a bit of a 'facelift' in recent times and the product no longer looks like the image shown at the top of the Dooyoo page here. It's fair to say that the packaging for the product is fairly simplistic and basic. This is not something that would ever deter me from trying out a product, but the plain green lines and simplistic green font against the stark white background of the product's label offer little in the way of eye-catching detail or innovative ideas. The product itself is what matters to me however. The first time that I used the conditioner, I squeezed the product into my open palm and I was surprised at how reasonable it looked in terms of quality. I think I had been expecting a runny, thin liquid and this was not the case at all. Whilst the Smartprice conditioner is not the thickest or most 'luscious' looking cream conditioner that I have ever used, it was certainly thicker than I had been expecting. A small 'blob' - being perhaps a little larger than a 50p coin - seems to be ample to provide enough of a 'coating' over the length of my hair. The length of my hair is shorter than usual and it is now sitting slightly above my shoulder. This means of course that I don't need to use as much conditioner as when my hair is longer. I have found that the conditioner seems to glide onto the hair easily, coating it quickly and without much effort. I always concentrate on the ends of the hair during the application process, with only a small amount of conditioner being applied near the roots, as otherwise I feel that my roots can feel 'heavy' and become greasy quite quickly. I left the conditioner on my hair for a few minutes, which is usual practice for me. During this time I was able to witness the scent of the product which just felt quite 'generic' and put me in mind of a basic, everyday soap or bath product - so, the scent is entirely unisex in my opinion. There was nothing fruity or floral about the scent, which makes it quite difficult to describe. I didn't find it to be overpowering or even particularly unpleasant, but there was certainly nothing that made it stand out as being an attractive or appealing fragrance. The product rinsed easily from my hair, without any residue being left behind. Even as I was rinsing, I could feel that my hair felt quite soft and without knots or tangles, which is the same result as that achieved from bigger, more expensive brands. Whilst drying and styling my hair, I noticed that my comb and hairbrush were able to glide through the length of my hair easily and without stumbling across any knots. I wasn't able to detect the aroma of the conditioner on my hair at this stage and felt that it had been over-powered by my various styling products. This isn't a criticism, as the scent didn't appeal to me too much anyway. Once my hair was dry, I could see a slight shine on my hair which went some way to leaving it looking healthy. Compared to other conditioner products however, the Smartprice product didn't fare NEARLY as well in terms of leaving my hair beautifully shiny and full of vitality. I hadn't expected it to, to be fair. For the low price paid, I thought the Smartprice Conditioner worked quite well, leaving my hair lovely and soft and with a gentle shine. I was extremely pleased that it worked any knots and tangles from my hair so it was completely smooth and softened after use. I found it did nothing more than this, but the result WAS more than I had expected, so I was rather pleased and didn't feel let down by the product at all. I noticed too that the Smartprice conditioner didn't seem to affect the colour on my hair, which is a MUST for me with products like this. I spend a small fortune getting my hair professionally coloured and it wouldn't do to use hair products that strip it from the hair or encourage it to fade. I noticed nothing in the way of damage from the product in this respect. Asda products are not tested on animals, and the Asda Smartprice Conditioner is suitable for vegetarians. In summary, I would buy the Asda Smartprice Conditioner again, particularly if money was tight. I personally prefer to use hair products that leave me hair feeling nourished and feel slightly more luxurious to use. However, I am glad I tried the Smartprice products as I have found many of them perform really well and I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Smartprice Conditioner again in the future as a stand by or cheaper alternative. For the low price paid, I feel the product deserves full marks.
I love trying value products, be it from tesco, asda, sainsburys etc. I recently tried the asda smart price shampoo which I found to be very good! I decided to give this a try 2 weeks ago as I had run out of conditioner and money is rather tight at this current moment in time! I had no real hoped of this product being any good because it is so cheap compared to others on the shelf! I was very pleasantly surprised though. Packaging/price: Asda have got a new bottle for this compared to the bottle shown in dooyoo's image, it is now see through. The bottle is 500ml and is not very tall at all. It is the medium sized bottle you may expect to find, the main shock with this product is the price... 24p! 24 pennies for a bottle of conditioner is a bargain! It's 10 times cheaper than other brands! And that is no exaggeration. The bottle is very basic and has one label accross the middle with very little writing on it. It is part of the try me and love me promotion. If you are not happy with it in any way, asda will refund you the money. Does it work?: I applied a regular amount to my hair and rubbed it from the roots to the tip like usual and washed it out immediately. This worked well and gave me clean hair. The next day when I wasn't in a rush I applied this to my hair and left for just over a minute, my scalp started to itch badly and it was uncomftable for me to have in my hair. Afterwards my hair was still cleans and the itches went away fast. I have sensitive skin and leaving this in for a period of time isn't too good for me! I can't complain about this though as It left my hair very soft ( I have shortish hair). It's runnier than other brands, but easy to spread through your hair. I find you need to use a lot though to get a good coverage. Overall: I would recommend you give this a try, it really worked for me! I don't use it too much though as my skin doesn't seem to like it very much. If I am ever short on money I will be using asda smart price shampoo and conditioner as they work well and are very cheap! This gets 4 stars from me as it performs nearly as good as leading brands. It's simple and effective. You also get a lot for your money.
When I lived at home many moons ago my mum used to always buy Asda smartprice conditioner simply because it was cheap and because there were both myself, her and my sister with long hair we used quite a lot of it. When I moved out I soon realised that more expensive hair products produced better results on my hair yet I recently found myself purchasing some smartprice conditioner and this is my review. The product looks very basic and that has to be said from the onset. It comes in a plastic bottle through which you can just about see the outline of the conditioner inside. The bottle has a green and white label with the product and brand name on the front and basic instructions for use, ingredients and recycling information on the back. I can excuse the cheap looking packaging simple because the product is in fact very cheap and at just 24p for a 500ml bottle it proves to be very good value. The actual conditioner is a green coloured liquid and it is quite thin in consistency. It has a slight fragrance to it but it isn't anything detectable or over bearing. In the days my mum used to buy this product I am pretty sure there used to be a button to press in the cap to release a hole through which you could dispense the conditioner but now you unscrew the lid and pour it directly from the bottle to your hand and due to the thin consistency it does come out quite quickly which is an issue when my son uses it! The conditioner is easy to apply to the hair and I comb it through mine or my son's hair using my fingers. I find that for my sons hair around a fifty pence piece sized blob of conditioner is enough but for my long and thick hair considerably more is required. I have found that once it is washed out of my sons hair it does make his hair feel quite nice and soft but it is not really effective on my thick hair at all other than slightly coating it which I would rather didn't happen anyway. Despite the conditioner not being great on my hair this wasn't really an issue for me because the main reason I bought this product wasn't for my hair strangely enough! As a teen I remembered this product being highly effective balm to put on the legs whilst shaving them in the shower or the bath! The thin conditioner covers the legs well and act as a balm so the razor glides over the skin and helps to prevent nicks in the skin. Obviously this isn't the purpose of the product but it works well for me and it is much cheaper than actual shaving gels and just as effective I have found! I also think that this product would be a good conditioner for children's hair because it does work well on my son's hair and has not given him any problems in terms of allergic reactions and such like as it does seem quite gentle. For the ridiculously low price I cannot grumble at this purchase as it works well for us....as a conditioner for my son and as a shaving balm for me! Thank you for reading my review!
When it comes to shampoos and conditioners I really am not overly fussy on what I use. I swap and change often, buying whatever brand is on offer and occasionally when I'm a little more flush I treat myself to my favourites from Tony & Guy and use them as 'special' lol. However the other day I was in Asda and by the time I got to the toiletry section of the store, I knew I was way over budget but that I needed to get some shampoo and conditioner and so I picked up a couple Alberto Balsam items at £1.00 each. I was quite happy to pay this till I spotted this conditioner at only 24p a bottle and decided to get this and the matching shampoo (that I had forgot that I had hated before when I tried it lol!). The Packaging: This comes in a see through slightly frosted white bottle with a white plastic screw on/off lid to the top of it then around the bottle there is a green and white coloured label and on the front of that we are told that it is Asda 'Smart Price Conditioner and that it contains 500ml of the product. Other information on the bottle includes the ingredients being given and being told how to use it, cautions are listed and contact detials for Asda are given. This is distinctively a cheap offering just from the style of packaging that it has, it really does look stand out cheap however to me its always the product that counts over appearance anyway. Using It: This is a rather runny light mint green in colour conditoner. The smell is really quite weird though and very hard indeed to describe being neither floral or fruity and I at best say this has a fragrance, to me of aloe vera or something like that. Its pleasant enough though, lingers on the hair freshly for a good few hours after using it and is unisex in fragrance. To use it of course you take a blob and smooth it through damp/wet hair. A little goes a long way, it doesn't feel greasy or anything adverse like that and I simply leave it to penetrate my hair for a minute or so before rinsing it off which it does very easily indeed. I have no problems in using this at all. This leaves my hair reasonably soft and without any residue in it at all. I can get a brush through it anyway and it doesn't feel greasy or dried out, just normal really. I can't say it makes my hair stunningly shiny or particuolary smooth or anything but it does make my hair less flyaway and easier to style and like its been conditioned so all in all not a bad product, just don't expect any miricles to come from this bottle! Only available from Asda or from asda.com costing 24p a bottle.
I bought this on the money-crunch, but didn't expect miracles. I am used to expensive brands of haircare, usually using Tigi products, so this is about as far as I can buy from my usual choice (with about £8 difference in price!). So, the price as of May 2011 is 24p for a 500ml bottle. The packaging is not pretty or stylish, but it is functional in a white plastic flip lid bottle. The product itself is about the consistency of thin custard, peach in colour, with a very pleasant fruity peach scent (which is actually quite strong). It will run out of the palm of your hand when trying to apply it, and I found that I needed to use more of this product than I would use of Tigi, but I wonder how much of this is psychological because I know I am using a cheap product. I found that overall it does add condition to my hair but it failed to adequately moisturise my dry ends; my hair is overall quite fine and dry and I use a hairdryer and straighteners. I used it on my young daughters hair and it was perfect for her; she also has very fine dry hair. It is very gentle. My partner used it and was impressed, but being a man, he hasn't got much hair to condition! I do recommend that you try this as a family conditioner, but do use something protective if you heat-treat your hair as I do. The price is really excellent for the quality of the product. You might be interested to note that when I was checking the current price for the review, I took a look at the ingredients for this, and compared them to Asdas more expensive own-brand ASDA Essential Care Jojoba Conditioner Dry/Damaged Hair. There are more ingredients in the smartprice product than in the more expensive jojoba product, which goes to show that less can be more! The two major ingredients that stand out are Paraffinum Liquidum and Lanolin, both used for dry skin conditions. I would love to see a review for this product from someone who suffers dry skin conditions or eczema in their scalp as these two ingredients are beneficial!
Everyone is strapped for cash at the minute so when making cut backs I always try to try the supermarkets own brands. On some occasions the own brands are not as good as the expensive ones but I have found this one is ok for some purposes. This only cost 24p which was brilliant due to normally paying £1 or above for a conditioner. We have a family of 6 when my step son comes to stay so a bottle of conditioner will ususally last around 2 weeks. It isn't in a very attractive bottle and the children find it very easy to open so my son tends to spill lots of it in the bath when he is having a shower that works a bit of a problem. It is a 500ml bottle which is the same as most of the leading brands so it is good value for money. I think that is is a nice smell so my children and me always smell clean when using this. My children's hair is only thin so this works lovely on their hair and makes it easy to brush when washed and it looks shiny when it is dried and also smooth. Although it is good for the children it hasn't been so good for me. My hair is soft when I have used it and smells nice but I struggle to get my brush through my hair after it has been washed. I like the fact that I can recycle the bottle when used because it is a big thing in our house at the minute. It also has a 24 month use by date which is good if you don't use it alot not that this would ever happen in our house. This is a cheap product that is good for children and thin hair, if your hair is thick I would definatley avoid it and find another one that will suit you which means you will probably have to go for a more expensive brand. This has made a good cut back in our house and has turned out really good value for money. I now buy this on a regular basis for my children but if I have any extra money I do buy a more expensive brand for my own hair.
I have been buying some cheaper shampoos for quite some time as I am on a budget and I want to save money in areas that I can and so if a products is cheaper of on offer, I am tending to buy those products first. I have quite thick hair and it is dark, I have to use a hair conditioner on my hair because it does not lay correctly on my head otherwise, because of the thickness of it, and so regular use of a conditioner makes my hair stay in one place and then it is ready for me to gel it in my usual way much better. I bought this one from Asda, it is from the smart price range, which is the lower brand, it is a white bottle with a screw off lid, the bottle is a bulky one and the inside is a peachy colour, the thickness of it, is very thick indeed for the price, it is nice and soft when placed into the palm of the hand, the texture is nice and smooth too. It does have a nice smell to it, it is very refreshing and once it is applied to the hair, the results are instant on my hair, my hair is short and it was easy to rinse and to comb the hair after use, there is a nice shine to my hair since using this one and I am very pleased with the results that it gives my hair and my wife has used it and it is suitable for her hair too and she has longer hair and it untangled her hair after washing and she was able to brush it very easily with a brush. I do like the smell and it is not such a feminine one and so this can be used for both men and women, as I think it is ideal for both sexes. My wife loves this one and it works wonders for her hair too, I think it is so cheap for 24p for a 500ml bottle, it is a give away price. Only a little is needed on the palm of the hand and so the bottle does last a very long time and is suitable for all the family. It is also easy to massage into the hair and this one does not drip all over the shower or bath as I found another shop brand did, this one is absolutely fine and it rinses off the hair and does not leave it all greasy, it does not make the hair feel all rough, it leaves it soft and smooth. I highly do recommend this one for anyone to give a go and for the price, it is well worth the money and for anyone who is trying to save a little more money, it is a very good quality conditioner and is ideal for all the family. I rate it 5 stars.
I recently tried the Asda shampoo and thought I would try the condition too and so I bought both together as this conditioner was only 24p for a 500ml bottle and it comes in a basic white plastic bottle with just the name on the front and no fancy writing etc and for the low price I thought I would give it a try and save myself some money and see if I liked it. The bottle is quite chunky with a screw off top and inside it is a thick peach coloured liquid and it is not at all runny and it has a very nice fragrance to it, it is nice and perfumy and the texture is nice and soft and a very good quality indeed for a cheaper brand. Only a little is needed to massage into the hair, around a 10p piece sized blob and I felt the hair go nice and soft straight away when I was massaging it into my hair and it was very easy to rinse off and I have tried some other shops lower brands of conditioner and I found this one to be the best of them all and although I was not disappointed with the other shops own products, this one is my favourite one so far in my opinion. It did not run down the hair when I massaged it into my hair as some other brands tended to do, this one stayed on the hair perfectly until I was ready to rinse it off and when I did rinse it off, I could feel the softness straight away and the hair was extremely easy to brush after use and when it was dried the results of my hair was amazingly good and my hair felt nice and smooth to the touch and I was happy with the results and the shine of my hair was just the same as it always has been using the other brands and also nobody has said it looks dull or no comments on how my hair has changed and so it must look the same as when I used other products in my opinion and I have some friends that are dircect and would tell me lol. I always thought the lower branded hair products would have horrible results before I started to try the lower brands and I am amazed how good these really are for the very cheap price and I will continue to buy this one in the future as it suits my hair and I am very happy with the results and my hubby used it on his hair and he is just as happy with the results too. The size of this bottle and the little that is needed to use on the hair, it is going to last me quite some time and if you are on a low budget or have a large family, I highly recommend this one as you will be amazed at the results it actually gives to the hair and my hair is in a good condition since using it and I am quite picky about what I use on my hair and always have been but I cannot tell much of the difference between this lower brand and the higher brands in my opinion. I give this conditioner 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review.
I only got this conditioner because I run out of my other conditioner and it was a really good conditioner to get. When my hair is really dry I will leave the conditioner on my hair for about 5 mins and when I wash it out and brush it my hair is nice and soft. When I put this conditioner on my hair and left it it felf very soft. It felf a lot softer with this conditioner. It comes in a white bottle. It is very basic so it will not be hard to find it in asda. It also have the smart price logo on it and the writing on the bottle is red. It only cost me 25p which is great because most of the time I will spend about £3.00 on a conditioner. After i washed my hair I opened up the conditioner and the smell from it was lovely. It was a peachy smell. The conditioner was not very think so you have to be careful when you get some out. When I combed my hair there was no knots in it. The only thing I wouls say bad about this conditioner is that I could not smell it after i dryed it. When I have used other conditioner I could smell it but you cant go wroge when it only cost 25p. Most asda should have it in stock. I would use Herbal Essences but I ran out of it so I bought this conditioner. It is a great conditioner to use if you want nice and soft hair it also made my hair look very fresh. I would recommend this conditioner because it left my hair nice and soft. Thanks for reading x x
As I am a mother of four I can appreciate how valuable some of these value products are to people, particularly if you do as much hair washing as I do on a daily basis. I usually purchase a cheap conditioner for my elder daughters as they like to wash their own hair and therefore I have no control over how much they are using (always so much more than I would like to see them using) but with a 500ml bottle costing just 24p in Asda it really does not matter if they throw a whole bottle in the bath as I can afford to buy one of these each week if need be. The conditioner bottle is nothing special to look at as the bottle is just a white plastic bottle with a Smartprice label on (green and white how fetching) and this is not something that I would place in pride of place on my bathroom windowsill but I don't mind it hanging around the edge of the bath as it is too well used to be stored away in a cupboard somewhere for a rainy day. I decided I had best give this a try as the kids will only use my expensive conditioner if I forgot to take it back out of the bathroom. The conditioner is fairly gloopy and pours out of the massive hole quite fast so be careful with this if you use this product. The conditioner did go through my hair quite well and had a sort of floral, sickly sweet kind of smell to it that was a little too much but thankfully this washed out with the conditioner itself and did not leave me smelling like a bouquet of flowers which really is not my thing at all. There was no real smell left behind in my hair and while it was soft and relatively tangle free it was not as nice as it is when I use a more expensive conditioner so I was relatively pleased with the results and while I would not use this again I would happily let my daughters use this as they don't need to look quite as beautiful as me (well, not yet anyway as thankfully they aren't in that stage yet!). This is a very reasonable product for the price that I paid for it and I will definitely be purchasing it again to give my girls something to muck around with in the bath and the bottle makes a nice toy for my son who loves to fill it up with water and try and make a few bubbles with a little shampoo (or a lot of shampoo depending on how great his hand/eye coordination is that day!).
I bought this conditioner about 2 mouths ago and I think that it is a good conditioner. Some times my hair will be very dry but when I put this conditioner on it makes my hair really soft. I leave the conditioner on for about 3 minute which make my hair nice and soft. It comes in a white bottle and it is aslo has a flip top lid on it. It is very basic so it will not be hard to find it in asda. It also have the smart price logo on it and the writing on the bottle is red. The bottle is chunky and it can be a bit hard to hold. After I shampoo my hair I opened up the conditioner and smell a peachy scent. The conditioner was thick so you might need to use a bit more to condition you hair. When I combed my hair there was no knots in it. After I dryed my hair I could not smell the conditioner no more. When I use other conditioners I can smell the conditioner on my hair after I dryed it. I do think that if you are on a budget I would say go and buy this conditioner because it is so cheap. It cost me only 29p and most asda should have it in. Most of the time I will use Herbal Essences but I ran out of it so I bought this conditioner. It is a great conditioner to use if you want nice and soft hair it also made my hair look very fresh. I would recommend this conditioner because it left my hair nice and soft. Thanks for reading
Asda Smartprice conditioner is available for just 25p and as the price is so basic so is the packaging & the product. The bottle is a chunky plastic design which is white with a thick white plastic lid and a green & white smartprice label. It is very basic in appearance but this makes it easier to find on the shelf in store. This is available from Asda stores or asda.co.uk and is a fantastic price. Once I remove the screw top I can smell a faint peachy scent and the conditioner is quite a vivid orange colour. It is fairly thick so take care when pouring this out as although you will probably need a large dollop of this to cover your hair there is no need to be wasteful! The conditioner provides fairly good coverage and my top tip is to comb your hair before you get in the bath as this should help to get out most knots and then just make sure that you don't scrunch your hair up too much when washing it. The conditioner applies quite well and isn't too runny. I did find that I needed around twice what I would use of a more expensive conditioner but then at such a cheap price I'm not really complaining. My hair normally needs washing every 1 1/2 - 2 days with shampoo & conditioner and this condition did not increase the time I could go without getting greasy hair. I did find my hair nice and mangeable after using the conditioner but I usually find that anyway so this is not any 'miracle result'. As a general conditioner it's not that bad, it's got a fairly pleasant smell, unoffensive, basic packaging and it's available for a fantastic price. I would definitely use it again and it's fantastic for anybody who is on a budget. Also, I sometimes use conditioner to shave my legs and this was thick enough for this purpose. I am rating the conditioner 3/5 and would give it extra points if it was better scented and the packaging looked better but I think that 3/5 is perfectly adequate to sum up the actual product itself.
