~ Naturally Powered All In One Citrus Toilet Gel ~
Naturally Powered is a new range of cleaning items that have been brought out by Tesco's. They are already available in store and online.
The Naturally Powered All in One Citrus Toilet Gel is something of the range that I have tried out, I don't usually opt for eco friendly as I buy pretty much the same brands of cleaning products all the time but as I am a Bzz Agent I qualified for a consumer trial for products from the Naturally Powered range and this is the item I was sent along with 2 sachets of Naturally Powered washing up liquid.
~ Packaging ~
First off I feel I have to mention that the bottle is made from 100% recycled materials and that it can indeed by recycled again so this is a thumbs up for Tesco!
The bottle is mainly silver/grey in colour and is plastic, on the front is a small white coloured label that indicates the name, brand etc of the product, again there is a small white label on the back that tells me all the relevent information. The bottle isn't fancy or special in anyway, it infact looks rather plain and isn't as eye-catching as other brands, it does however look eco friendly or it looks as I would expect an eco friendly product to look.
It has a green lid that needs to be squeezed slightly in order to open it, it doesn't require to much pressure though so can be opened quite easily.
Under the cap is a small directional nozzle to make it easier to aim the product down the loo, the top is very straight though, not angled in anyway and I feel this makes it a little more difficult to squirt the product under the rim of the toilet, that may just be me though!
~ The Product and My Thoughts ~
The liquid gel inside the bottle is yellow in colour and this is only apparent after you have squirted some down the toilet as the bottle is not transparent, the colour is very bright and the scent is brilliantly citrusy, more so lemony I would say.
As I have said I am a Bzz Agent so this came to me packaged in a cardboard box and as a Bzz Agent I am required to evalute products aswell as add photo's, I photographed the gel in the toilet (yes, I did feel a bit silly, taking photo's of my toilet!!) and the photos show just how bright the yellow of the gel is. I would describe it as more of a liquid than a gel though as it doesn't cling to the toilet bowl as a thicker substance would, when placed around the rim it runs down the bowl but some of the liquid does stay on the bowl in order for it to do it's work.
It is recommended that you leave the product for 2 hours for it to do it's stuff then flush before using. I have used it in this way and found that it worked brilliantly but mostly I just pour a little in a give the toilet a scrub with the toilet brush or I leave it overnight.
As soon as it is squirted down the toilet you can smell the fresh lemony scent and I find that the scent fills the bathroom and leaves the whole room clean and fresh smelling.
I admit that I was a bit skeptical about using this for the toilet as I do prefer to to use bleach or 'normal' toilet cleaners but I was plesantly surprised to see that it the job just aswell and made me feel a little bit better as the amount of bleach that goes down my toilet is redicilous!
Naturally Powered has a web address ~
The blurb on the website describes this product as a citrus toilet gel that will leave your toilet sparkling, it is made from plant-derived cleaning ingredients and kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, while the all in one action cleans, disinfects and helps remove limescale too.
So in all it seems like a really good product, brilliant for the more eco friendly amongst us. It costs £1.50.
Just a quick update with the ingredients as promised ~
Aqua, Citric Acid, Hydroxyethyl Ethylcellulose, Parfum,
Alkyl Polyglycoside (coconut, palm and vegetable derived),
Benzalkonium Chloride, Didecyldimonium Chloride,
Chlorhexidine Digluconate. D-limonene.
