Haha, I was trying to take a photo of a product I‘ve been asked to review and got a little bit distracted.
Here’s the product. On rare occasions I accept products for review if it’s something I’m dying to try out. This wasn’t the case at this particular time but more on that a little later in the post.
Anyway, the product is this shower gel by Cosmecology. There are three versions where I got the “comforting” one to try out. I’ve been asked to be completely honest in my review and I always am of course.
The liquid soap Wille and I use normally on a daily basis is an unscented mild soap from the pharmacy. I started buying it eons ago because Martin’s allergic to perfume and I’ve stuck with is ever since mostly because of the large refill pouch it comes in. The Cosmecology shower gel reminds me a lot of our usual soap and on a plus point that’s not a bad thing at all. It’s mild and it’s sudsy.
I have to say I’m not a huge fan of the packaging of this product though. It’s not something that looks particularly exciting in my bathroom. Also while it contains Hibiscus extract I would have hoped for more of a scent. It’s super lightly scented and I wish the scent was more prominent, otherwise it might as well be an unscented product. Also on the negative side while it dispenses well from the bottle and looks creamy it’s a little on the watery side when you get it on your hands. You get the feeling that you need to be quick to put it on your body or it will run off.
With all that said I’d give it an score of 3 out of 5.
And now to the reason why I accepted the product for review in the first place. It gave me the perfect opportunity to give a shout out to The Jersey Company! Holla!
I’ve been a loyal customer of The Jersey Company’s for years (which I don’t think they knew when they asked me to review since I use my real name and not my blog name when I order) since I first discovered them via another blog. I buy all of Wille’s skin care there and the reasons why I keep coming back are the great prices compared to what the same product costs over here and the AWESOME customer service they provide. I’m telling you, AWESOME! I’m a sucker for good customer service and theirs is among the best I’ve experienced.
One example, I place an order and when I receive it I find out that one item on my list is on back order but in a HANDWRITTEN note I’m asked if I can accept the smaller version of the product (not a sample, but a smaller travel size in a kit along with another product) which they’ve included while I wait for the size I’ve ordered. Of course I can wait if you ask me that nicely! And the regular size arrived shortly after, again with a nice little note on the order sheet along with a smiley face. I’m telling you, there are plenty of on-line companies and IRL ones too that could learn a lesson or two from The Jersey Company.
There you have it one product review, one holla + a very curious cat.
