Avon Senses Lagoon Liquid Soap...
* INFO & PRODUCT DETAILS.. *
I am a big fan of most of the products from the 'Senses' range at Avon, which is a range containing various scented shower gel and bath products, as well as a co-ordinating range of liquid soaps. Having tried most of the liquid soap products from the range in the past, I have a few firm favourites, one of which is the "Lagoon" soap.
The Lagoon Liquid Soap is only available in one size of bottle which is 300ml. The normal price for this product is around the £2 mark but there are frequent promotional offers to be found in the Avon Senses range, and I am able to regularly purchase the soap for less than this price, or buy several liquid soap products within the range for a reduced sum. There is a matching 'Lagoon' shower gel product in the Avon Senses range that is available in two sizes - 250ml & 500ml, with prices starting from the £2 mark.
As @ the time of writing (August 2012), the Senses Lagoon Liquid Soap is available for only £1.50 on the Avon website (to be found at www.avonshop.co.uk), which I think is a great value for money price, particularly as the plastic bottle is larger than most other brands of soap that I buy regularly. The bottle tends to last a good couple of weeks in my household, even though it is used several times throughout the day, so I do feel happy that the purchase is a fairly economical one.
The Lagoon soap is packaged in a clear plastic bottle, and there is a sturdy plastic 'pump' dispenser in a turquoise or 'aqua' colour on top of the bottle which requires the smallest of pushes to dispense the liquid into my palm. The plastic bottle has an attractive-looking label on the front which depicts an image of a sort of tranquil-looking lagoon/beach scene which is in keeping with the name of the product and its appearance overall. The words "Refreshing Waterfruits & Pear" are printed on the front of the label underneath the product name, and I thought all of this combined nicely with the product to give it a rather innovative image.
* MY EXPERIENCE... *
I have found that the pump dispenser on top of the product's bottle is adequate at dispensing just the right amount of product into my open palm. There is seldom any waste, which is something that can not be said of every similar product that I regularly use. I find also that the 'nozzle' on the pump causes nothing in the way of dribbling or mess after use, which is another little annoyance to be found with rival brands.
The Lagoon liquid soap is a pale turquoise colour and so it co-ordinates perfectly with the blue and turquoise themes in my bathroom. The liquid is see-through and is quite thin in its consistency, although it is not so thin as to dribble and run all over the place when the soap is being used.
The Lagoon soap's fragrance is extremely pleasant, being quite fruity in its aroma. I find the pear in the product's fragrance really comes through easily and seems to combine with something else which reminds me of apple. The fragrances work well together to give a slightly refreshing scent which lasts for a short time on the skin without being overpowering. I like the way the Lagoon's scent offers something a little different to other fragranced soap products that I regularly purchase and again, I would say the product is quite an innovative one.
I find too that the fragrance is quite 'unisex' so I have had no grumbles from my other half, which is not always the case when it comes to soap products! I think some soaps seem to have a rather strong 'floral' tone throughout them which don't overly appeal to me anyway, but are a complete no-no where my husband is concerned. The Lagoon soap in comparison is suitable for either sex and a variety of age groups too I would have thought thanks to its appealing, fruity aroma.
Even though there was no luxurious, abundant lather to be found whilst the product was soaping on my wet hands, I found that my hands were spotlessly clean after the product had been used, with any dirt or grime being effortlessly washed from the skin.
I am pleased to report that I have suffered no ill-effects whatsoever from using the liquid hand soap in terms of it causing any aggravation to my sensitive skin or eczema.
Overall, I have nothing negative to report about the Avon Senses Lagoon Liquid Soap and think the product offers excellent value for money and is a fairly economical purchase, thanks to the bottle being a slightly more generous size than other liquid soap products that I buy regularly. I think the soap is pleasant to use and enjoy its fresh and fruity fragrance whenever I use it. The product is an old favourite of mine and I will continue to buy it for my household.
