You've got to love a gorgeous fruity bath and shower gel so when the happy bunch from I Love…Cosmetics got in touch to ask if I would like to test out their new I Love… Juiced Up Blackcurrant I couldn't say no. All their products look so vibrant and delicious so I was really looking forward to trying this one.
A quick bite from the I Love.. Team: "Flash, bang, wallop! I Love...burst onto the scene in 2008. We are all named after truly delicious; mouth-watering, passionate, almost unadulterated scents that will generate a pure feel good factor and a sense of pure happiness! Don’t be shy, try me out. You never know; you might just enjoy yourself!" With a statement like that I could wait to get in the shower and try out the new blackcurrant flavour for myself!
The smells this product has is just amazing, it's just like blackcurrant juice and it really wakes you up in the morning which is fab especially if like me you're crawling out of bed at 5.30am and you need a good kick to get you going. The colour is very striking too, a deep purple with a shimmer through it although this doesn’t transfer onto your skin. It’s just the way it looks in the bottle.
I've been using this as a shower gel for a few weeks now and I quite like it. It doesn't lather up like other shower gels in your hand so best to use a sponge but then again you only need a small amount which goes a long way. The scent doesn't last on your skin though like some products which was disappointing as I quite like to smell fruity! The bottle is massive, you get 500ml for £2.05 and this will last you ages. My other half has been using it as well and he does like to use a lot of shower gel but both of us together have hardly made a dent in this stuff. Good as it'll save some pennies which can go towards other things.
I do like the design of the bottle, it's simple, sleek and clear so you can see the product through it plus every bottle seems to have it's own little story which all adds to it's brilliance: "Take a whopping big bite out of life! My delicious aroma is bursting with super juicy blackcurrants all ready to explode into action, leaving you with your very own bite size portion of happiness!". There are loads of other different flavours in the range too from Strawberries & Milkshake, Mango & Papaya to Tropical Paradise. I bet they all smell just as amazing as the Juiced Up Blackcurrant.
You can purchase these products from Superdrug stores or from www.superdrug.com. Morrisons also stock the I Love… products so if you have one near you pop in and take a nosey.
Overall a fantastic product, smells brilliant and is easy on the purse strings for the massive amount you get. It's a shame the scent doesn't last on your skin but for the price what do you expect? It's good that these products aren't just dedicated to girls though, well I think so anyway. They have such a massive range of flavours I'm sure even men will love them!
