~Citrus Burst Liquid Soap~
This handwash (liquid soap) is part of the Senses range that Avon offers. This particular handwash carries a scent of citrus, mandarin and grapefruit. There is a matching shower gel available and Avon promote this particular scent as being unisex.
The handwash is presented in a clear, plastic bottle with a pump dispenser at the top. The bottle has a colourful label which makes it stand out as does the green contents of the bottle. This product has a 12 month usage life and the bottle can be recycled once empty.
~Where To Buy~
A 300ml bottle of this handwash retails at £2.00 but is currently on offer at just £1.25. It can be bought from www.avonshop.co.uk or through your Avon rep.
I buy bits and pieces from Avon often and quite like the Senses range. I never pay full price for any handwash and I believe I paid £1.00 for this when it was reduced in a recent brochure. I think that this is quite a new edition to the Senses range as I hadn't previously spotted it in the brochure. I opted for Citrus Burst as both myself and my fiance like citrus scents so it seemed perfect for us.
The packaging is attractive and looks bright in my rather plain looking bathroom. The pump dispenser works effectively and my five year old son can work it himself. Two pushes down on the pump provides a decent amount of fairly gloopy, green liquid. This handwash has a gorgeous scent which is quite strong and the perfect Summery scent in my opinion. It is a sharp, sweet aroma which is incredibly zingy and refreshing. The grapefruit is the main scent and smells gorgeous. My fiance likes it too and doesn't find it too girly.
I would say that this handwash performs fairly well. I find that I need to rub my hands for a little longer than with other handwashes to encourage a decent amount of lather to form. I like a good lather as I feel more confident that my hands are being cleaned properly. The lather that is created is soft and cleansing but not luxurious or extra creamy - it is quite basic. This handwash rinses well from my hands and my hands do feel and look clean after drying them off.
So far, so good. I have sensitive skin and whilst my hands feel quite soft, clean and smell pleasant after using this handwash, they seem to feel a little 'warm' and slightly uncomfortable. This isn't something that I have noticed with the other Senses handwashes so I quite surprised by this one. My hands don't feel overly dry after using this handwash but they certainly don't feel moisturised and hand cream is needed. I don't like using this several times a day so tend to only use it once or twice and then use another the rest of the time as I can't keep applying hand cream after washing my hands each time. My son and fiance haven't had any issues with this handwash.
This handwash offers good value for money at the reduced price. It performs well at its intended job but unfortuantely doesn't suit my skin for some odd reason. I would say to try it out if you love zingy scented handwashes as everyone has different skin and this may suit you. I won't personally buy it again as I prefer something a bit more moisturising like Dove or Nivea but it is a decent handwash for the price but there are better.
Thanks for reading :)
