Review Avon senses Enchanted shower crème

I -mostly- like Avons bath and shower stuff *dang, surprised you there, didn't I?*, they have such lovely scents available. New scents are regularly released and whilst rubbing your wrist over the paper in the catalogue the scent catches your skin and you get a good idea of what it's like in real life. This is how I acquired this shower crème: it was released a few months ago, their "Enchanted" scent picturing a rainforest. I immediately loved it and ordered the small bottle of 250ml for 2 or 3euros.

It's a plastic assymetric bottle with a green top. The top opens easily and distributes the creme like it should. The creme has a velvet green colour and thick texture. But more important is the scent and yes, it is exactly what I pictured it to be. It has a sweet and yet tropical scent, it's hard to describe but this is one of the best scents I've ever used in bath in my life!!

Now, if it is so superb and all, why didn't I give it a Product Praise? Mainly because I use this crème a bit differently than it's intented. It's a shower crème, meaning to be used in the shower like a shower gel but only with a thicker and more moisturizing texture. However, I've been using it as a bath crème. It does foam up nicely, leaving me with lots of bubbles and smells delicious!

Negatives are the ingredients: SLS is second on the list - hence the foaming up, and alcohol denatol is halfway the ingredients list causing it to be drying for your skin. This is really dissapointing, because I'm very fond of the scent. I'm still contemplating whether I'll repurchase it or not...
Have you every come across a scent you adored but where the product was too dissapointing?

Bij mij is dat Lush Yummie Yummie Yummie - zalige geur, maar heel teleurstellend in gebruik (geen echt schuim en voor een douchegel is dat toch wel mijn vereiste).

Oeh ja, kan me niet indenken dat ik een douchegel zonder schuim gebruik, jammer :(
