The HOSPITAL scent..

Showering can be fun, especially when I’m doing it with the right companion. Now, don’t go ‘yellow’ just yet. Companion here meant my liquid shower gel. All this while I’ve been showering with this liquid shower gel that is name after a bird and promises to provide extra moisture to the skin. I’ve been satisfied with it since the moment I started using it.

Then recently, Darling went itchy and bought me another brand of liquid shower gel – De**ol. All because Ethan was down with the flu and I’m starting to show symptoms of getting it too. Does he seriously think getting me an anti bacterial shower gel helps? The first time I used it, I tell you.. it smelt like the hospital! Horrid images of hospitals immediately flash before my very eyes!

Not giving up, I decided to give it another go. Lather up some more and now, oo-la-la, I smell like a freshly disinfected toilet! Thank you so much for your lovely thought, Darling. If you ever want to shower with me again, please strongly consider getting back my BIRD BRAND liquid shower gel.

Otherwise, no more showering together as whatever mood I have has all died together with the bacteria and germs… @-@

P/S: I remembered foong once blogged about bathing and the liquid shower gel that I fancy so much was in there too. Foong, do you remember? lol..

    My hubs also recently switched to Dettol but not the shower gel but the soap!! I do agree it does smell like being in the hospital but bathing with this antiseptic soap does seem to assure you that the grimy germs are killed, well at least 98%!

    haha… i know which u mean starting with capital D ending with L… yes, to kill bacteria ma.. maybe yr darling wants u to be fully free from bac before going to bed.. hehehe…

  • //

    well..it's branded and a trusted one..

  • //

    Yes, of course I remember! It's DOVE! DOVE! DOVE! There, I said it!! LOL!

    Actually it's not good to bathe with anti bacteria soap. So I never ever use Dettol to bathe. Here's why…1. Antibacterial products are only effective in killing bacteria, not viruses. So it does not prevent cold and flu virus. 2. Antibacterial products could make bacteria resistant to antibiotic medication. Unlike antibiotics that the doctor gives, household antibacterial products are used in low and unpredictable concentrations. When bacteria are exposed to low and infrequent dosages of antibacterial ingredients, they are more likely to form a resistance to the antibiotics. 3. Antibacterial products go somewhere after we wash them down the drain. The widespread use of these chemicals contributes to their presence in wastewater and ultimately in the environment. The effects of these chemicals on the environment have yet to be determined. You can read more HERE : )

    I love Dove! They always come out with new fragrance and flavours! But my favourite is the cucumber! Makes me look forward to my shower! Hehe

  • //

    The other day, just bought half dozen of Dove cos they were sold at RM15!! Normal price RM22! : )

    I use the Jepun name shower gel that start with S, and I love it! I had never try the bird brand yet… but the D brand, I don't mind to use to washing my hands, but not my body!

  • //

  • //

    cynthia, that one is shabubushu.. or something like that.. hahahaa.. i know, i know, it is wrongly spelt.. shabibushu.. hahaha..

  • //

  • //

    Hahaha, my husband got the LifeBuoy!Anti bacteria, also not anti virus :)

  • //

    reanaclaire, do you mean shokubutsu? Haha. I don't like that brand cos it leaves stains on my bathroom floor! Dove is the best! : )

  • //

    Hahaha :D Smell like hospital? But seriously, I think dettol is fine. :pSometimes I uses Lux too.

  • //

    hahaha…yes, I agree…the scent is VERY VERY important! Lately I banned hubby from using the Shokabutsu grapefruit one….

  • //

    I guess the H1N1 really affected many people. Dettol boss is laughing all the way to the bank because of that.

  • //

    Oh! My SIL is using that D brand and I have the same opinion as you – smelt like hospital. I don't like it too.
