Tesco Ambience Pink Diamond
Advantages: Smells absolutely stunning and leaves my laundry beautifully soft and fragranced
Disadvantages: None for me
Whilst I will always purchase laundry washing products containing softeners I always favour using an additional softening product, particularly as I love my clothes and bedding to offer a beautiful fragrance. I would normally purchase Lenor, but the prices seem to have dramatically increased and in a bid to reduce our ever growing weekly shopping bill I decided to purchase Tesco own brand named Ambience Pink Diamond and this review discusses my experience with using it.
~~ Appearance of the product ~~
It is a shame that Dooyoo have not provided an image as it was the appearance of the fabric conditioner that caught my eye with its' bright cerise coloured packaging and a beautiful image of a deep pink coloured flower. I was initially a little dubious about the fragrance, which I presumed to be feminine, as I didn't want my husband complaining about sleeping in girlie smelling bedding or his clothes being highly perfumed. I unscrewed the lid whilst in Tesco and took a sniff and initially the conditioner seemed rather overpowering, but from previous experience of similar products I was aware that this would weaken once the laundry had been rinsed in the washing machine. I would describe the aroma as similar to that of an orchid with its' deep and very luxurious aroma which is suited to both men and women. The sturdy plastic bottle contains 750 ml of concentrated fabric conditioner and we are advised that this is sufficient for 21 washes.
~~ Using the fabric conditioner ~~
The side of the bottle provides information on dosages and for obvious reasons I do not intend listing them all. However, the good consistency pink coloured conditioner is suitable for both machine and hand washing and whilst I initially used the recommended dosage when I first purchased the product I now use slightly less and am able to achieve identical results.
~~ The results ~~
I am unable to speak of the results with regards hand washing as this is not a task I undertake, but when removing my laundry from the machine I am immediately greeted by the most luxurious and gorgeous scent. The conditioner does not cause any residue or build up on my laundry and whilst the aroma fades once the washing is dry, the beautiful fragrance is still evident although it is much more subtle. My laundry is always left feeling silky soft and even my husband has commented on how he likes the smell, which is unusual for him as normally he just turns his nose up!
~~ Ingredients and other information ~~
I do not believe in copying long lists of ingredients into my reviews and would advise that the product did not cause any irritation to my skin. The bottle should be stored in a cool place and can be recycled once empty. There is a little information on the side of the bottle stating that Tesco cannot guarantee that this product would be suitable for those suffering with sensitive skin.
~~ Price ~~
I have checked on Tesco website to find a current price and for some reason the 750 ml bottle is not listed, but I'm sure it retails for around £1.40. However, until 29 December 2011 you can purchase the 1.47 litre bottle for £2 after which it will return to its' normal price of £2.30.
Tesco Ambience Pink Diamond receives 5 stars from me as it is a high quality fabric conditioner and I will be stocking up now I am aware of the current offer.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
Summary: A high quality and reasonably priced fabric conditioner from Tesco
