===The front label on my bottle is slightly different to the image above but still the same colours===
Avon Senses is a range of bath and body products and they are constantly bringing out new ones in the line.
The one I am reviewing is Mystique.
'Discover a new world with this mysterious romantic fragrance.'
Sensual with Rose Gardinia, Jasmine, Peach and Vanilla.
300 ml clear plastic bottle with red pump action top - secured with a clear plastic ring to prevent spillage in transit.
Front label has an image of a bridge and the night sky.
Deep rose coloured liquid.
The gel is made in Poland.
Among the ingredients are glycerine, alcohol denat and parfum.
Avon also sell a shower gel in the same fragrance.
£2 full price but often on offer and are now 3 for £5.
The smell of this hand wash is similar to the corresponding shower gel in that it is not very strong at all. It is a pleasant enough smell - more feminine I would say but without one discernible fragrance. I do not really detect the vanilla or any of the other listed aromas but it is slightly sweet and fruity and quite rich.
The hand wash is a lovely transparent deep rose red colour and would compliment your décor. It took me a while to get my pump action working and the pump has to be turned 45 degrees to open it up. The gel then came out easily and only one pump is needed to get enough gel on your hands - the smell is quite delicate and not overpowering. When washing your hands the gel lathers up nicely and rinses off quickly. There is very little residual fragrance left on your hands - but they do not feel dry either, though this is not a conditioning wash it does contain glycerine. You do not feel this when the gel is in use but it must have some benefit.
The bottle does go a long way as only a tiny bit is used at a time.
I am disappointed that none of the Avon hand gels contains any antibacterial properties and I do not find this hand wash any better than cheaper ones bought from supermarkets.
This is a pretty coloured gel and has a nice shaped bottle so maybe that is why you would buy it. It cleans well and rises easily. Not too bad a deal when on special offer but nothing at all special for me.
4 stars - OK as a hand wash but nothing special.
===Would I Recommend?===
Yes, when on offer.
