With a name like The Pink Cow, I did not hesitate one bit to pick up this shower gel. I mean, come on! How could I pass up on a name like that? 😀
Let me just show you why I had to pick this up, besides the name:-
Do you not love that? I do. That sort of tongue in cheek humour appeals to the very English part of me 😀
Anyway, I’m not a fan of anything that smells of Strawberry, but when I spotted this at Boots, there was just Strawberry Sundae – A Very Wild Bath and Shower Gel or Coconut Creme – A Very Quiet Bath and Shower Gel. Naturally, I went for Strawberry Sundae. Wild? Yes Please!
Actually no, I’m not wild but I don’t like coconut scented anything either so it was pretty much Strawberry Sundae by default. So, after getting over the cute text and the happy note about this having no parabens, how is The Pink Cow Strawberry Sundae shower gel?
Cor … very nice indeedy missus!
It smells pretty much like a strawberry milkshake. Nothing too fake, nor too sweet. Lathers up a treat and cleans skin without drying too. I was surprised that you only need quite little to get a nice lather which is quite good really since that means you don’t waste, and good for me because I can’t get this one here in Malaysia.
Here’s another thing. Doesn’t it remind you of Philosophy bath and shower gels? I know Philosophy bath and body stuff are immensely popular overseas but I could never get into them because the scents are too sweet and foody for my liking.
But you know why I’d pick up The Pink Cow despite the sweet foody scent (that thankfully goes away and doesn’t linger on the skin)? It was only £2. Yes £2 for a 500ml bottle. Nice? Yes indeedy! 😀
Pros: Cute text, Smells nice and cleans well, Cheap as chips!
Cons: Limited scents, Unavailable in Malaysia, Obscure
Oh here’s another quote from the bottle that I particularly enjoyed:-
Don’t you just love that? Be silly. I think I shall live by that tenet – I like giggly brain cells 😀
I really want to try the others like Vanilla Biscuit or Mint Candy but sadly, I can’t 🙁 Oh well, the next person I know heading to the UK could do me a favour eh? 😉
If you have used anything by The Pink Cow or have even heard about it, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I think they usually retail for £2.99 or something quite similar.
The Pink Cow Strawberry Sundae Bath and Shower gel retails at £2.99 at Boots pharmacies in the UK
