AMW Reviews: Amu'in Shower Gel


I am a soap user and have always been, but soaps no matter how moisturizing they call themselves, aren't enough for my super dry skin.  Recently, I've been purchasing Bath Lotion or Shower Gel to ease up my dryness while taking a shower.  When I was given the chance to try the Amu'in range of products, I jumped in the chance as an all natural products are always a big YES for me.

After my review on the "Alaga" (Care) line including the Hand Sanitizer and the Moisturizing Hand Lotion, it's time for me to give "Sigla" (Energy) a try!  This time, its a shower gel!

AMW says ---

Pros

  • locally made
  • natural ingredients
  • no allergies
  • it doesn't dry out my skin
  • energizes me a bit
  • nice and simple packaging
Cons
  • not safe for pregnant women
  • not everyone would like the scent, it may get too tiring to the nose if used longer
  • for international readers: Locally made, so have to purchase online
  • scent is gone by an hour or so (I don't mind about this)
Tips
  • perfect to use this with a wash cloth
  • mix the shower gel in a tub of water then dip your wash cloth to gently scrub your body
  • always follow with body lotion or cream right after shower to keep your skin moisturized.

Overall

The Amu'in Shower Gel in Sigla is a nice addition for your morning routine, its scent does energize me during shower but a cup of coffee is still needed for me to last the day :)

Will I repurchase?
I don't think so, don't get me wrong, this is a good  product but I seldom repurchase the same brand of shower gels!

Where to purchase and how much?
Amu'in Multiply site Php435.00 (approx $9.25) for 450ml
or you can purchase the sample sizes from Gift Sets. 


Are you a soap or shower gel user?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  1. Great little review. I'm kind of dreaming what the scent would be. I love energizing scents esp. pink grapefruit!!!

  2. I'm not a soap user nor a shower gel user-- I use a creamy body wash bec. it's the most moisturizing among the 3. I haven't used soap for maybe 10 years or so bec. I find them unsanitary and messy to use and they strip your skin dry, but that's just me. Shower gels are a bit drying also so the best way to go is with a cream bath especially for those with dry skin.

  5. Me, too! I am not very loyal with shower gels. In fact I have a lot on my bathroom just to see which one I'd feel like using every day :) Thanks for the review!

  6. This is really interesting. :-) I've seen them once at a trade fair. I might give this a go -- but is it drying? I only use the unscented Dove soap because my skin is that sensitive and dry (but my face is an oil mine - and I don't understand why).

  11. The NeuroChiq, so true! I did repurchase a couple but it takes time! its like the zodiac sign wheel! It goes round and round before you get to go back to purchase the same brand!
