- Good quality shower 🚿 gel £5-£15 range…
…over the years having tried various shower gels I’m getting bored of the Doves,lynx, nivias etc once tried Ted Baker gel which was overpriced lynx.
What do you recommend? One that stays smelling nice on your skin for at least a few hours ???
£5- £15 budget

You’re chasing a dream from the 70s and 80s when perfumes contained lots of lovely stuff like synthetic musks, which made them substantive on the skin. Nowadays all the good raw materials have been outlawed by various ‘elf ‘n safety bods, most notably IFRA and RIFM, meaning well-loved smells like Brut, Imperial Leather and so on have been emasculated. Have you tried Imperial leather soap recently? It’s a shadow of its former smell.
If we could go back to the pre-paranoia days and smell old classics like Miss Dior as they were when first launched our noses would be blown apart because we simply aren’t accustomed to smelling those lovely molecules in our environment any more. Why do you think perfumes nowadays are so wishy-washy and vaguely fruity?Posted 3 months agopetecMember
ever since we put a softener in a few years ago, I can do soap again. Feels so much better to me.
Currently using this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00L373R7W for that old school smokey “kill everything” vibe.
Big bars. Last ages.
i do have some mancave cedarwood stuff, but it’s just not as good as soapPosted 3 months agow00dsterSubscriber
Have to admit when I was younger (before kids, mortgage and retirement planning) I used to spend a fortune on stuff like this – Terre De Hermes being the day to day shower gel and Creed for nights out.Posted 3 months ago
What a waste of money! Mrs W laughs about it how I’m now looking at the £1 offers shower gels and 10 years ago I thought nothing about spending £80 on a bottle.
Now, what ever Source or Lynx shower gels are on offer.martinhutchSubscriber
Found you this one on ebay – should do the job, but it’s a few quid over your budget. Wanting a whole shower for 15 quid is a shade ambitious. 🙂

we now have a bar of soap in the shower. It works perfectly, you know, like it always did
I remember 3 soaps from BG (Before gel) – Lifebouy (stank), Imperial Leather (stanks worse) and Dove (hmm, was ok I think). I much prefer shower gel to any of those! Oh and novelty soap-on-a-rope at Christmas – Sort of flesh-pink coloured, totally dried your skin out. Yeuch.Posted 3 months ago5labMember
at nearly £5 this is almost in-budget..
I just use it on pits (original sauce elsewhere) – I can’t really figure out if it helps stop me being stinky, but maybe it doesPosted 3 months ago
