~Mystique Liquid Soap~
This liquid soap is part of the Senses range that Avon offer. A matching shower gel is also available. Avon describe this liquid soap as being 'sensual and romantic'. This liquid soap is presented in a simple yet functional curvy bottle which is made of clear plastic and complete with a bright pink pump dispenser. The label adorning the bottle illustrates a Paris city scene.
~Price and Availability~
A 300ml bottle is available from www.avonshop.co.uk or through the brochure priced at £2.00.
We go through a lot of hand wash in our home as I have a slight OCD with ensuring my hands are thorougly clean and free from germs or stickiness! This combined with my overly enthusiastic (with pump dispensers) toddler son and messy fiance requires me to keep a good stock of hand wash. We prefer liquid hand wash as it is more hygienic that bars of soap and ultimately less messy.
I have been using the Senses liquid soaps for a few years now and sometimes buy when they are reduced to £1.00 or £1.50. £2.00 is still a good price to pay for 300ml of liquid but I never buy any hand wash at full price as there is always a bargain to be hand. My Gran is also a fan of this collection of liquid soaps and stockpiles them. Last month when I visited she offloaded a bottle of Mystique liquid soap which we went on to use in our bathroom. The pink liquid is unlikely to appeal to men but the boys in my home aren't fussed by what colour of liquid soap they use to be honest!
The pump works well and releases a good sized and sufficient blob of this runny gel onto my hands. I find one pump sufficient for regular hand cleaning but two or three if my hands are dirty or if I have been cleaning and want to give my hands an extra thorough clean. This liquid soap lathers up beautifully and forms a thick, foamy layer on my hands. It feels incredibly soft and cleansing against my dry skin. The skin on my hands is sensitive but I have experienced no irritation from using this liquid soap. My son finds it pleasant to use and it is kind to his delicate skin and therefore I consider it to be family friendly.
The scent of Mystique liquid soap is one I consider to be quite perfumed and is a lovely feminine aroma. It is a lovely, deep floral scent which comes through beautifully as the liquid lathers up on my skin. It doesn't last long once my hands have been dried though which is disappointing for me but not so much for my boys as they don't want to be smelling too girly! Whilst I find that this liquid soap doesn't dry out my hands further, I still feel the need to apply my regular hand cream for a bit of extra moisturisation. I have been pleased by how clean, soft and refreshed my hands feel after each use and it performs well at removing any dirt or cooking smells from my hands.
One 300ml bottle lasts well as a little blob of this liquid soap goes a long way. I find this to be a pleasant liquid soap to use on a daily basis but I do prefer something a little more moisturising and pampering such as Dove or L'occitane. It is a family friendly option though and one which is worth stocking up on when it is reduced. It won't appeal to all but is a nice addition to any bathroom or kitchen sink in my opinion.
