*~Poppy and Peach Fabric Conditioner~*
This fabric conditioner is part of the Exhilirations range offered by Comfort. This scent within this fabric conditioner has been created by fragrance experts. Fabric conditioner is designed to be used alongside detergent to leave your laundry soft and scented. It should be poured into the fabric conditioner compartment in your washing machine drawer. The recommended dosage is 35ml for regular loads, 55ml for bigger loads and 18ml for handwashing.
As with the other scents in this range, this fabric conditioner is presented in a colourful, curvy plastic bottle. In this case, the bottle is a Summery orange colour with printed pictures of fruit and features a screw off lid which can be used as a measuring cup when dispensing the liquid. The bottle is eye catching and easy to store.
*~Where To Buy~*
This fabric conditioner is available in two sizes - 750ml (21 washes) and 1.2l (34 washes). Poppy and Peach is available from supermarkets including Tesco, Asda and also from Wilkos. Expect to pay £2.00 for the smaller bottle and £3.50 for the larger bottle when not on offer.
My washing machine is on daily for washing clothing for three people, bedsheets, towels etc so I go through a lot of detergent and fabric conditioner. My preferred brand is Comfort but I always look out for special offers. My favourite from the Exhilirations range is Strawberry and Lily Kiss but I often try the other scents. Last month, Wilkos had the 750ml bottles on offer at just £1.00 which was too good a bargain to miss so I bought a few bottles of my favourite scent and also a bottle of Poppy and Peach to try.
I have just finished my bottle of Poppy and Peach so thought I would review it. The orangey coloured conditioner pours easily from the bottle and is a creamy sort of liquid consistency. It looks substantial yet isn't too thick that it clogs up my machine drawer so no issues there. It is highly scented and very perfumed smelling so if you favour a lighter scent, you won't really like this one. It smells like a nice, fruity but concentrated perfume. I have an 8kg washing machine so tend to use nearly a full cap of conditioner per wash.
I have used these fabric conditioner alongside powder detergent and liquid detergent and it generally takes over the smell of these products. Providing I haven't put too much in my machine, our laundry is left feeling soft and even moreso if I hang the laundry out to dry naturally rather than over the dryer or heaters indoor. It works great on rough towels and makes them fluffy soft. A lovely scent clings to my laundry and is fresh, fruity and lightly perfumed. Thankfully it is no where near as overpowering as when dispensed from the bottle. I do still prefer Strawberry and Lily Kiss but that is just a personal preference - we all have our favourites! Comfort state that this product has 'easy iron' and I do find that my laundry is easier to iron after using Comfort.
We are a family with sensitive skin but none of us have experienced any irritation from using this fabric conditioner in our washing machine. It is suitable for use on all the families clothing in my opinion and the laundry feels very soft against our skins. Our clothes remain soft when dried and put away in the wardrobe. The scent does remain for a day or so and whilst the towels and bedsheets do still smell fresh and clean after a week or so, the scent is barely noticeable after this time. This is quite disappointing as some of the other Comfort scents last longer and become more prominent when you are wearing the laundered clothing but this one is quite weak.
Overall, I would recommend this fabric conditioner. It performs well on all laundry loads and has a pleasant scent but it isn't my favourite in this range so won't be one that I purchase all the time. I simply prefer the scent and strength of the other scents in this range. As I do bigger loads, my 21 wash bottle lasted around 16 washes which I still find really good.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: nice but not my favourite Comfort conditioner
