Wilko Smoothie Blackcurrant Fruity Shower Gel

I love my baths and showers so having a range of products in the house is a must for me. A new range that I have recently been introduced to is the Wilko range of bath and shower products. The item I will be reviewing here is the Wilko Fruity Shower Smoothie Blackcurrant.
This product is currently on offer with the rest of this range from Wilkos. Each item costs only £1 although at the minute, you can buy any two products for £1.50, which is why I treat myself and bought a couple of different things.
This shower smoothie comes in a squeezy plastic tube which is larger at the top than it is at the bottom where the black flip top cap is. The tube is partly see through, so that you are able to see the contents inside but there is also a large purple printed on label which explains the product. This part of the packaging says what the product is called, along with FRUITY written in large letters down the side. There is also a description of the product which is; Scrub up in your shower for glowingly clean skin with a blackcurrant and blackberry scent. The tube is bright and eye catching which is why I noticed this range in the first place.
Upon opening the tube for the first time, there isn’t really much of a smell. You can see inside the tube that the product is a light purple colour with added bits which makes it more like a scrub than anything else. Once you begin to squeeze the product out though, you can definitely smell the blackcurrants. I use this with one of those round puff ball things and it does lather up quite well although not as much as a regular shower gel. I think this is due to the scrub like feel. When in the shower and the product gets warm, it smells extremely sweet but not to the point where I think it is sickly. I really like the smell of this in the shower and using it is lovely.
So the smell and texture of this smoothie are great and I can feel it working well on my skin each time I use it. While it doesn’t necessarily moisturise too much, the scub part of this makes me skin much softer than it is with a regular shower gel. I feel as though it removes any dead skin really well which you wouldn’t get with a shower gel. With this though, it works as both a scrub and a shower gel so for me it is great value for money. It’s really like getting a 2 in 1. So far this has been my favourite of the Wilko range but I also can’t wait to try out some of the other products as there are so many.
