I've been using this for the last couple of month. Seems ok. smells nice and causing no dryness

This is a great product. Very good value

100ml is very small. Are you sure you got the size right?

Love this they smell exactly like the shower gels you buy from Avon

Brilliant - use these all the time

Money down the drain!

great!! cheers!!

Nothing wrong with this stuff. Every bit as good as the branded stuff selling for at least three times the price.

Standard price.

It will be made from the same chemicals, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (or other ionic surfactant) with a dash of Cocamidoproyl Betaine (or other amphoteric surfactant) so it doesn't completely ruin your skin. Colourant & scent is unimportant, just added to make you feel good.
Only concerns would be perseverative, at this price range, I would expect an isothiazolinone based preservative which isn't really good for your skin. However that is not to say a more expensive product wouldn't use methylchloroisothiazolinone or methylisothiszolinone, you really do have to check the ingredients!

If someone could pop the ingredients up for this, that would be awesome!

I did, what am I missing?

Most supermarket own brand shower gels are cheap.

Always this price been using this stuff for 12 months or more they did do them 1.5 litres a year or so ago for £1.29, I find it lathers far better than Sanex and others so no brainer lasts much longer not voting as standard price:(

For me it's a lot more basic than that: how cocnentrated it is, which translates into how long it lasts. Don't they put salt in to thicken an otherwise meagre concoction? And of course ingredients don't have to list concentrations, which is how they get away with it.

How would you gauge concentration? The thickness is irrelevant as rheology modifiers can be added to give it a thicker feel but use the same amount of surfactants. Ingredients are listed in order of highest concentration to lowest, with anything at 1% or lower can be arranged in any order together. (Labelling regulations - not all companies actually follow this law!)

Salt reacts with certain surfactants to thicken the product (incidentally it is the salt which stings in your eyes!) however SLS (or SLES etc) is an irritant with irritancy increasing with concentration. For that reason, the concentration of the surfactant will not vary wildly. There are recommended use levels in skincare products of most chemicals.

If salt is not used as a thickener, other chemicals can be used such as Carbomers or gums, so to wrap up, the consistency of the product doesn't translate to concentration.

Oh and to clear up another myth, if a product foams more than another product, it doesn't mean it cleanses any better. The foam is merely there for aesthetic appeal, infact, more foam can be a problem as the foam is created by using high irritancy chemicals.

Erm, how little you need to clean yourself! I know the thickness is irrelevant - that's why I mentioned salt as a way to fool you into thinking it's a higher quality product than it is. And I know the ingredients are listed in decreasing order, which is why you get dirty tricks on foods such as using different types of sugar so that they can appear lower down the list than less contentious ingredients.
