I find hand soaps a bit of a same old same old. Once you have tried one, you have pretty much tried them all. I haven't used a bar of soap in years, instead opting for the hand pump liquid soap as a easier, cleaner option. No more soap covered in dirt etc, etc. The Senses versions I have differ from the bottles in the picture above. I bought three varieties when I bought them; I bought:
Waterfall - Revitalising lemon, lime and ginger (blue?) Picture of a waterfall on label.
Mystique - Sensual Rose Gardenia, Jasmine, peach and Vanilla (red) Picture of a night lit scene.
Lagoon - Refreshing Watermelon and Pear (green) Picture of a beach with palm tree scene.
The colours are all very pretty but smell wise I prefer the lagoon version; although they are all very nice. I don't know that any of them actually revitalise or refresh you, after all how revitalising is washing your hands? They all smell nice, they all lather up well and they all clean dirt. Basically they all do what they should do which is the main thing. They last well, I have a household of two adults, and two teenagers and one of these will last me just under a fortnight ish. The pump action is easy to work and I have had no problems with sensitive skin or allergic reactions to these. I always make sure I have a supply of these in the cupboard so I don't run out, they get a thumbs up from all the family.
Avon do a basic range of liquid hand soaps for the princely sum of £2. Regularly they are on offer to £1.50 or 2 for £3 or sometimes even down to a pound so well worth keeping an eye on. In each bottle you get 300ml of liquid soap and they have a range of fragrances available.
I have used the Reflection (purple), Lagoon (Blue) and Serenity (Orange). The scents of all three are very nice, not too overpowering but you can smell them as you wash your hands. The smell doesn't linger on your hands very much, so if you want something that lingers for a little while, perhaps this isn't for you. I can't describe the purple very well so won't attempt to. The orange liquid soap is very citrusy and fruity and zesty, I quite like it but sometimes it can be a bit strong first thing in the morning. The lagoon is my favourite which is the blue soap - again difficult to describe but it does make you think of the ocean (maybe it is just the name!).
The soap lasts ages. 300ml goes a long way and we go through maybe 3 per year in the bathroom, 3 per year in the kitchen which is really good value for the two of us who live here.
The liquid hand wash has a pump action dispenser and to be honest I think that if you press it down the entire way, you get too much soap so I tend to just press it half way - thereby doubling the life of your liquid soap.
My skin can be quite sensitive and dry and I don't find this dries them out more but I don't think it helps to moisturise them in the same way my Palmolive hand wash does. I like the Palmolive in the kitchen as my hands get dry sometimes when I am cooking and repeatedly washing my hands. This AVON soap is ideal for the bathrooms and I have bought them before and will buy them again.
All three of the scents I have had have been nice and I have and would buy this item again. It is good value for money and does the job nicely. A good bargain when it is on offer!
The avon senses are the highly popular less expensive shower gels and liquid soaps that come in a variety of scents and are priced at £2 without discount. However like the majority of Avon products they can be commonly found at the price of £1 which is half price or 99p. As I have said before in previous Avon reviews never pay full price for the products as there will regularly be reductions particularly in the makeup and body care sections, maybe not so much in the jewellery and clothing sections though.
The bottles generally hold 300mls with the colour of the contents matching the colour of the container. The bottles come with their own pump which is very convenient and have a seal initially to stop leaking. Depending on the scent each bottle has a little atmospheric picture of where the scent originates from. For instance the lagoon has a oceanic, refreshing image on it so perhaps this scent would sit bathrooms and toilets which are designed on a green/blue or nautical theme.
The consistency of the soap or equal to or better than Tesco or any other liquid soap for that matter I have purchased before and for £1/99p I can't really disagree with the value. The soap is very lathery and doesn't irritate or damage my skin. I have had some problems with the liquid soap in work recently where the soap is so severe on my skin that if I wash my hands with it too much that I almost feel like my hands are burning. I do not get this with this soap so I can highly recommend them to people who suffer the same problem as myself. The soap lasts a very long time also especially if you are a small family.
The scents are very pleasant and last up to an hour I have found and although the soaps each contain strong colours like red or purple I have found absolutely no discolouration to my hands or towels.
Mystique-Red/Pink-soothing and sensual
Reflection-Purple-soothing and sensual
So there is a good selection available as well as a scent and colour to match any bathroom or toilet. I would recommend this to everyone I know as even at full price It is great value and a great product.
I like the Avon Senses range and normally have a couple of the shower gels knocking around as you can pick them up for a really good price. The liquid soaps are something we used to get a lot but now don't buy as often, as explained in a minute.
The liquid soaps come in a clear plastic bottle with a semi transparent label on the front, so you can see how much is left. You get 300ml in a bottle which is dispensed by a pump on top of the bottle, which pushes out a generous enough amount. As most Avon users will know, they like to change their products regularly, and the Senses range is quite often having some of its scents changed. At the moment, there are four to choose from: Lagoon, Mystique, Reflection, and Waterfall. They normally bring out a couple of extra ones throughout the year too, such as 'Winter Warmth' which they bought out at Christmas.
I won't go into detail about each scent, but I like all of the above. They are all pleasant smelling and I don't mind using any of them. One of the reasons I really like this hand wash is that the gel like formulation creates a good lather but still rinses well, not leaving hands feeling dry, sticky, etc. The scent of the wash lingers which I also like, and my hands feel soft rather than dry after using it.
So far so good, but the major flaw with this hand wash is that it contains absolutely no antibacterial or actual germ killing properties which is the main reason that I am washing my hands in the first place! This is the reason that we are no longer using this as much, because the majority of the time when hand washing it's because I've just cleaned the dog mess up or done some other undesirable job. It really is annoying and I have no idea why Avon haven't realised this yet.
The price of the hand wash is £2.00 and it's regularly on some kind of offer. For this price I feel that it should have some kind of germ killer, and this is why I am giving it 3 stars. I would recommend this if you just want something that will smell, look and feel nice, but if you want to tackle germs this is not good enough.
This review is on Avon Senses "Reflection" liquid soap
I was never an Avon purchaser but then my neighbour became a rep and I felt obliged to purchase a few items every time a brochure popped through the door. I flicked through the brochure and ordered on the safe side and ordered liquid soap. I love liquid soap hence the safe order option. I have it in the bathroom and kitchen.
I use Avon Sense in the bathroom as I like anti bacterial washes in the kitchen.
Avon Senses Reflection claims to be peaceful & soothing but I'm not really convinced a hand wash can be either of these.
Yes it has a nice light fragrance but the smell doesn't last!!
The liquid soap container is clear and about 6 inches high with a pump plunger. Once under half full the contain starts to fold in on itself, I think it would benefit being shorter and stumpier.
Senses are exclusively an Avon range so is only available to buy from Avon. You can order from your rep or on their website, www.avon.uk.com (the down side to ordering online is you will have to pay delivery of £3.50 or next day delivery £5.50)
There are a few other types aswell which include -
Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this product as I do not feel it is any better than others you can buy readily from supermarkets or other local retailers.
The smell is very light and doesn't last, the bottle is badly designed and the price isn't that competitive even when on offer.
Sorry Avon...Plenty of room for improvement on this item
I recently bought a bottle of Avon Senses Aloha liquid soap from someone at work who is an Avon rep. It was priced at £1 per bottle and I thought this was a bargain. I was right, the clear plastic bottle contains 300 ml of lovely yellow liquid soap that is dispersed through a turquoise green pump.
The label on the front says "Aloha - exotic and uplifting liquid soap". Well Aloha in the Hawaiian language means - affection, love, peace, compassion and mercy. Since the middle of the 19th century, it also has come to be used as an English greeting to say goodbye and hello. Currently, it is mostly used in the sense of hello. Not really "exotic and uplifting, however I will forgive Avon for their sloppy translation - the soap itself has a very pleasant perfume predominantly of coconut and frangipani and leaves the hand smelling lovely. The lather it produces is not great, but for £1 for 300 ml I think I can put up with that!
The clear plastic bottle with its turquoise pump looks rather basic but as I say for £1 it is very good value for money.
AVON SENSES LIQUID SOAPS.
Nice colourful bottles of liquid soap, available from the Avon Booklets that come through the door, Avon being distributed to all doors on foot by their team of workers, book left they give you a date when they will be collecting their booklet, and you have an order form that you can complete and leave out the goods are delivered to your door, simple. They do have an on line site that you can order from too.
This comes in a plastic bottle approximately six inches high, it has a pump lid, which you can unscrew if you wish, and the pump releases enough of this hand wash, liquid soap to adequately wash your hands with.
Avon Senses is currently sold for £2.00 per bottle although i did receive mine as a part of a gift basket from my Son for Christmas. and it is currently on special offer i have found out from Avon for a mere 99p a bottle, so i will be ordering a few of the other fragrances to try. This bottle is a clear plastic see through bottle and it contains a liquid soap, that is purple in colour,it is easily pumped into your hands and contains vitamin E, it smells kind of like a sweet aniceed to me, but is not an unpleasant smell. You need to use this lather and then rinse it off.
I usually like to have a variety of hand washes in my bathroom, i leave a bottle on the side of the sink, as think it is nice for my quests to wash their hands with something nice, and easy to use. I also leave a bottle in my kitchen in case im cooking and want to wash my hands, as i have two sinks in my kitchen.
The Avon range of Senses omes in a variety of fragrane, there are six in total and as they are on special offer at the moment for a mere 99p, i have order the whole range so i can get to use them all.
Avon Cosmetics are made in the uk, and they are quite a cheap addition to any bathroom, i like to stock up on these kind of products especially if they are on special offer, i am all for saving a few pence now and again.
The liquid that comes out of this bottle is quite thick but not so thick that it doesnt squirt out of the pump easily, i liked the way that it made my hands feel clean and fresh, although i didnt think that the reflection fragrance was to special, i did notice that my hans smelt better once i had rinsed it off and dried them off, strange but true.
But i do like this range of liquid soaps, and am looking forwards to my rest of the collection so that i can try them all, i will let you know what i thought of the others.
This is a cheap bottle of liquid soap which looks quite pretty and you could always buy the colour that you like to match items and ascessorise to your bathroom.This comes in a 300ml bottle, which i got as part of a Christmas present and i did like the fact that it didn't make my hands feel sore or i didn't feel the need to use hand cream etc after using this, as it is important to have a good liquid hand wash that my grandchildren can use, i would score this a four out of five for being cheap, pretty and not bad for its performance.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
Senses Liquid Soap
When my mum used to do the weekly supermarket shop, she used to stock up on lots of handwashes from the supermarkets to put by the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink and the toilet sink downstairs. When I became an Avon representative I recommended to her the liquid soaps from the Avon Senses range; I admit I was thinking of the profit but anyway she decided to buy some; they come at a low price and so she thought it would help me out with more sales and also save her some money. I
showed her the page with the Senses Liquid Soaps on.
The flavours you can choose from are:
Mystique - sensual and romantic
Reflection - peaceful and soothing
Lagoon - clean and refreshing
NEW Magical - elegant and dreamy
We've tried them all and think they are really nice - the smells are all not too strong and all smell fresh and lovely.
We think these are a great idea; because they have a push-down top like handwashes so can be used as a handwash, but also they can be used as a shower gel as I've tried Senses shower gels to, and these liquid soaps are basically exactly the same. So for this reason they're really handy. If ever we run out of shower gel we use one of these.
My favourite flavour is probably lagoon. The bottle is blue and has an image of water on it. The fragrance is fresh and I really like it.
Price and Availability
These are from the Senses range at Avon so are only available to buy from Avon. You can order from either your representative if you're lucky enough to have one, or if you don't you can order from the Avon website, www.avon.uk.com.
These are normally £2 but as all Avon products are, they are often on offer and are currently 99p. Avon has a scented page at the moment for the New Magical liquid soap, and it smells so delicious my mum's just ordered two from me.
The shower gels are the same price as the liquid soaps at normally £2, I think that they are exactly the same, except that the liquid soaps have more in them with 300ml while the shower gels only have 250ml.
In Campaign 03, the next brochures out, I can tell you that the liquid soaps will be £1.50. Still a great bargain for 300ml.
I really would recommend these Senses liquid soaps. At 99p for 300ml I think they're a good bargain, but you wouldn't think they were cheap when you wash with them.
They smell lovely and fresh and the bottle designs are also really practical.
Overall I have rated this product as 4/5, only losing marks because my hands seem a bit dry after using this so often.
Nothing that can't be fixed with a bit of hand cream though and the cold weather has also dried them out a lot too. So overall I think thsi is a well worth trying product.
Thank you for reading
My mum always buys the Senses hand wash because it's good soap and is always on special offer so works out a cheap way to buy it because we like using nice scented products.
The Senses hand washes are all very cleansing and one press of the pump gives me enough soap to wash my hands thoroughly. You don't get loads of bubbles off these hand washes but you can tell that they are doing a good job of cleaning your skin. The hand wash is all the same and the only difference is the smell but a new one called Oasis does seem to leave my hands feeling softer than the others for some reason.
We keep handwash in both of our bathrooms and on the kitchen sink so it's a good job they are always on offer because it would work out expensive. They're sometimes 99p or on offer with the rest of the Senses range so that you can buy 2 or 3 products for a set amount of money.
I have used all the Senses handwashes currently available and they are:-
This is a bit citrus smelling and has got a sharper smell that the rest of them. I wasn't that keen on the shower gel of this but the smell goes a lot better in a handwash.
I love this one because it is a proper fresh and clean smell and reminds me of the Big Blue bath bomb from Lush.
Like I said, this handwash leaves my hands feeling softer and moisturized and it also smells nice because it has a musky smell that goes wicked with the smell of oranges that is also in this handwash.
Avon say this is scented with raspberry and orchid but I can't smell either of these things! The smell is like a mixture of fruit and flowery though so I reckon that's the 2 smells but they haven't been blended together very well and don't smell half as good as they should.
This is a proper flowery one and has got jasmine and rose in it. You can smell the jasmine and I think it's a nice sultry smell that's weird in a handwash because they usually smell much lighter than this because it's a proper heavy smell that's very nice anyway.
I can't see why we'd ever stop buying the Senses handwash because they all smell nice and clean my hands well. They're usually £2.00 a bottle and I reckon that's good value as well because you only need one squirt to clean your hands so a bottle lasts for ages and looks wicked on the side of the sink because they are all so brightly coloured and look dead pretty.
I have been an Avon rep for a while now in order to earn a few extra pennies so I have quite a house full of Avon products.
I have two bathrooms and obviously a kitchen in my house and I like to have one of these liquid soaps at each. I also have a little girl who doesn't quite understand the concept of only needing a small amount of soap so I get through quite a bit too.
I really like Avon products like this as they are regularly on offer, either buy one get one free or buy so many for £x, these usually work out when on offer around £1 which in my eyes is a bargain.
The soap I am reviewing this time is called "Reflection" and is the purple one pictured above.
The soaps come in a clear curved plastic bottle which holds 300ml. The lid is a standard pump which on this one is a lovely rich purple colour. The label on this bottle is in my opinion a little dated but is pretty non offensive. On this one the picture is of a swimming ppol at dusk and is very calming which translates the tone of the soap as it claims to be "peaceful and soothing".
The soap is a really good consistency thick enough not to run off your hands before you have chance to rub like some of the cheaper ones but not so nasty it leaves a horrid tacky feeling. You only need a very small amount of this soap in order to build up a decent lather and really clean your hands.
This particular one has a very soft, subtle but sweet floral smell to it. I would say it is a little on the feminine side but not overly so could be used by all the family.
The soap washes off easily and leaves your hand feeling clean. A real plus to this soap is unlike a more traditional bar of soap your hands aren't left feeling tight or dry afterwards.
I would throughly recommend this product. It does the job and is a really good price.
This review is based on the Avon Senses Mystique part of the range which is advertised as a sensual and romantic liquid soap. Each of the range has a similar tag line for example Senses Reflections is supposed to be peaceful and soothing.
Each fragrance has a set of products which includes the liquid soap, a shower gel and a roll on deodorant.
This particular soap has a light but warm fragrance which I find really appealing if not sensual and romantic. After washing, your hands are left with a light fragrance which lingers for a short while but is not overpowering.
The soap bottle is a clear plastic bottle with a pump the same colour as the soap and in the case of the Mystique fragrance a label of the same colour which pictures a scene evocative of the mood the soap is trying to create. This makes this quite an attractive product and ideal for leaving out by the sink in bathroom or kitchen.
One press on the pump provides just enough soap to wash your hands thoroughly without soap getting everywhere which means that the bottle lasts longer than you might expect.
At £2 for a 300ml bottle this product isn't the cheapest soap out there but I still think it's quite good value for money. At the moment there is a buy two for £2.50 offer on the Avon website which makes the product well worth trying and this sort of offer seems to crop up fairly regularly.
I'm always quite dubious about trying bath/body products when I haven't had chance to smell the fragrance but next time I spot an offer I'm planning to give more of the range a try.
I have quite sensitive skin and often find liquid soaps irritate my hands. Whilst this product is not specifically for sensitive skin I found it works for me leaving my hands feeling clean and soft with no itching.
I am going to base my review on the 'sunset' fragrance in this range of liquid soaps.
This soap never lasts long in our house, so maybe that should be a disdvantage as it costs more than many shop brand soaps.
The trouble is it just smells so good, the smell of warm oranges and grapefruits ( if you can imagine that ) fill the bathroom everytime the soap is used, and the fragrances hangs around for a good while after you have finished washing your hands, so maybe that is an advantage as it doubles as an air freshener lol.
The soap comes in a 300ml plastic bottle with an orange coloured pump, the pump reaches all the way down to the bottom of the bottle which is a bonus as most stop about 1cm short. I have found that 1 squirt isnt quite enough for adult sized hands, so i usually use 2, it lathers well and has a lovely moisturising feel to it.
Even after rinsing and drying the fragrance lingers on your skin so there is no doubt if you have washed your hands properly and not just quickly dipped them in the water ( anyone with children will understand the importance of this )
The fruity frangrance is also a big hit with the males in the house, not wanting to smell girly my son often used to skip the handwashing process, now his hands are sparkling :)
As i siad previously, it isnt the cheapest of brands, the normal price being £2, but be a savvy shopper like i am and stock up when its on offer, i just took advantage of a 5 for £5 offer, bargain !!
The Avon Senses range covers Shower Gels, Body Scrubs, Body Sprays and iquid Soap and the Soap is what i'm reviewing.
This soap is normally sold for £2 for 300ml. I think that is a good price, but every other book there is an offer on this. Weather it be half price, 3 for £4 and so on. Usually the offers cover the whole Senses range, so you can mix and match the products.
The bottle design is quite normal for the nature of the product. I admit it is quite a large bottle, but that's due to the amount of the product in the bottle, so I would rather it was bulky and good value for money, rather than petite and not so good value. The plastic is see through and you see the liquid through the bottle. It has a picture on the front and has a kind of hazy, misty scene on it depending on which one you buy. It has a pump action spray to get the liquid out and 1 generous squirt gives a good lather and gives your hands a nice scent.
There are 4 different ones in the range
Sunset - Yellow gel -Grapefruit and Mandarin
Lagoon - Blue gel - Water Fruits and Pearl
Reflection - Purple gel - Raspberry and Orchid
Mystique - Pink gel - Jasmine and Rose
I like all the scents. but probably say the Reflection one is my favourite. As I say the smell isn't overpowering and it moisturises your hands well.
Good, Cheap product
Avon Liquid Soap goes one step further than your average typical blue or green antibacterial soap product. In our house we tend to keep an antibacterial soap in the toilet and then have a Senses Liquid Soap by the kitchen sink and in the bathroom general handwashing purposes.
My personal favourite from this range is the Sunset Liquid Soap as it is suitable for the whole family and looks really attractive in it's bright orange bottle against our blue bathroom back drop. The smell is really invigorating and fruity which I absolutely love but it's not too feminine which means that husbands and sons can use it too.
This product also comes in Reflection, a peaceful lavender inspired scent, Mystique, a romantic and sensual scent and Lagoon which is a refreshing, crisp scent.
You would usually pay £2 for a 300ml pump action bottle of this liquid soap which I think is very good value for money. It's even better value if you buy two bottles for £3 from brochure 13 or one bottle for £1.60 in brochure 14. You can also purchase this online from Avon.com.
Although I am an Avon representative and tend to be enthusiastic about a good deal of their product range, I can only rate this four stars because it does not have antibacterial properties. I think that's an important point to consider if germs are a particular consideration in your household. This is a lovely product that looks good, smells great and cleans well but there are other products out there to consider too.
When it comes to toiletries and cosmetics, I am a typical girl. And when it comes to Avon, I can't help but stock up on many things, it has got to the stage now where I have to tell me Avon representative that if I order something in bulk, reduce it by half because I am buying for the sake of buying. At least it is putting extra commission her way but taking more pennies out of my purse.
I also like my rooms colour co-ordinated so if my bathroom is a certain colour then I have the same colour soap and products that match my bathroom, that must be an obssession of mine.
I love the Avon sense range, I purchase the shower gel and the body scrub and something that I have just recently started to purcxhase is the liquid soap. I find that liquid soap is more hygienic when washing your hands instead of everyone using the same bar of soap. Even though I live on my own, I do have a lot of guests and prefer them to use the liquid soap instead of my individual bar of soap that I use myself.
The AVon Sense liquid soap comes in a clear container, with a colour co-ordinated image to the liquid inside on the front of it. I doesn't give a great deal of information on the bottle, just details of the frangrance inside and what it is made up of. At the top of the bottle it has a pump action to release the soap into the hands.
Coming in a variety of fragrances, not as many as the shower gel, as they seem to have seasonal fragrances in the shower gel, I find this product really good. It would be nice however if they produced exactly the same fragrances as the rest of the range, so you are using the same fragrance at the same time.
Its not anti-bacterial however at the end of the day you choose whether you want to purchase anti-bacterial handwash anyway. The product itself when used build up a really good lather and you only need one skirt in your hands to give them a good wash.
Although its liquid soap, I would advise to use it only on your hands and not on your face, as with it being fragranced if you have sensitive skin it may not be good to use on your face. The soap itself when using on my hands, I find is very good to them and leaves them feeling really soft.
It comes in a 200ml bottle and is priced in the region of £1.50 however they are special offers on this product in more or less every Avon catalogue, either buy one get one free, or 3 for £5.
300ml / Formulated with vitamin E /
