Sainsbury's Lemon Sorbet Shower Gel
Advantages: washes ok
Disadvantages: fake smelling
I was wanting to try a different kind of shower gel as I always tend to stick to the same ones and so sent my husband on a mission to hunter/gather me some shower gel which was 'fruity' this was what he returned with and although it's alright it isn't fantastic.
It comes in a rather simple bottle which is plastic and quite long and slim, the one I have is different to the picture provided by Ciao, it is more oval and doesn't get thinner at the top like this picture suggests. It has a black cap which is what it sits upon and black writing. There isn't anything special about the bottle and I have to admit it looks rather cheap. I don't think this is the kind of shower gel you'd buy someone as a present or you'd want to buy if you are looking for some kind of luxury.
The lid is a flip cap so it's easy to open and close again no matter whether you have wet or soapy hands so it's very practical. Because it is a bottle which sits on it's cap it is practical again in terms of the gel being able to come out because it all falls down. The bottle is squeezy so you can get the gel out. It's a very thick gel, reminds me of a very thick lemon curd so you really do need to give it a good squeeze to get it out. I find that because it is so thick you actually have good control with getting it out so you are less likely to get too much which is good.
I put this straight onto my sponge and then wash myself with it. It certainly lathers up extremely well, even a small amount will soon provide a very decent lather and it goes a very long way which is great.
The smell is extremely zesty, you cannot deny it smells of lemons that's for sure although it is so very extreme that it doesn't smell very natural at all, it is very strong indeed and reminds me a bit of lemon cleaning products so it isn't something I really want to put all over my body and to smell of afterwards. The smell does stick to your skin for a while, I find that for an hour or so I still smell a bit lemony which is not ideal especially when this smell reminds me of cleaning products!
The shower gel does clean me and takes away any dirt and results in me smelling zesty which is good and it does lather up well. I do feel as though I am nicely clean after using it which I guess is the main point of a shower gel so it does score well on this level.
I am giving it 3 stars because I don't think it's anything special, the bottle looks rather cheap and tacky and the smell is so strong it doesn't smell natural aside from this it is perfectly fine. I think if you do like strong lemon scents then you will like this shower gel but for me it is a bit too strong smelling. It cost us £1.20 from Sainsbury's. I will be using the rest of this bottle but I won't be buying it again as it just isn't for me.
