Lenor Infusions Struck by Fuchsia
Advantages: A really nicely scented conditioner, that leaves clothes soft and scented.
Disadvantages: Doesn't burst with freshness as advertised.
I am always on the lookout for bargains when shopping, so when I saw that this particular product was being sold for ½ it's normal price, but also advertised as with every sale so much gets donated to a breast cancer charity, I could save and get a glow at the same time!
The product in question is - "Lenor infusions - supporting Asda's tickled pink campaign".
The reason that this is supporting breast cancer and one of the reasons it caught my eye in the first place is due to it's colour, with the bottle being a bright pink colour, this I assume is to indicate the "fuchsia" coloured and scented liquid inside.
There is a whole load of "bumf" on the bottle, dosing amounts, cautions and information on the breast cancer charities themselves, but the only information I really take any notice of myself, is the scent which we have established is fuchsia, and the amounts of washes I can get from each bottle, with this stating it should be approx 34 washes, though this of course depends entirely on how much you use per wash.
There is a finally a section stating how the conditioner releases it's fragrance, saying how with every touch to the fabric a "burst of freshness" is set free, hhhmmm, we will see!
As usual I put a load of washing in my machine (I have a new machine recently so half of my obsession with fabric softener is the fact that part of the draw actually works in this machine!), I read that for a normal sized load of washing a capful of softener is sufficient, but I use quite scented washing powders/liquids too, so I find only ¾ of a capful is perfect.
The liquid looks like pink milkshake, an smells really florally but with a slightly sweet undertone, quite girly with a freshness too, though of course I know it is highly unlikely this will smell the same one the washing is done.
Once my washing is done I was right about the scent, with it being much more subtle but still noticeable enough to smell on the wet washing.
Once dried the smell is still there (but more noticeable on certain fabric, my bed sheets are quite delicious, and I find myself obsessively changing my sheets twice a week!), and I notice it really helps with the drying times, again of certain fabrics, but any little helps!
As for the "burst of freshness" theory, I didn't notice any discernable difference when walking, but my washing was nice enough without it.
The softness of the fabric is very noticeable though, I am not one of those people who likes drying with line dried towels, finding them a bit too rough for my skin, but after a dose of this stuff and a quick tumble dry, I could literally spend the day in my towel!
My husband has quite dry skin, but at no time has his skin been affected by the strong scent in this product, but of course be careful depending on your skin condition.
Price wise this cost me £2.00 for a 1.2l bottle, though at full price this is likely to be around the £4.00 mark.
