    Lightbulb Nivea Men Active Clean Body Wash with Charcoal

    This is the product I'm referencing -



    Just a few tips -

    1. This seems very cheap (at least in the US), and is better than other products in its price range such as Old Spice body washes.

    2. The reason I'm starting this thread - the scent is a dead ringer for the A*Men accord. Even the colour of the gel is similar to the A*Men EdT perfume. If you're looking to get a body wash to layer with A*Men or its flankers with the prominent A*Men accord, look no further.

    So patchouli and woods? Sounds like a good one, given the price as well...

    Hi, could you advise which A*men EDT that you are referring to. There are a few options and I wouldn't want to purchase the wrong one. Many thanks

    Very cheap here.

    However tempting it's to try it, I'm going to pass. I've about half a dozen of these type of shower gels that I've got on sale, used a couple of times, and no more. They all leave a nasty film on the skin. The only one that was better by a mile is the Dove Men Charcoal & Clay, and now that you mention it, it also has a A*Men accord to it.

    I just checked on-line.
    Currently on sale at my local supermarket at A$3.60 for 500ml
    I'm buying some tomorrow - thanks for the suggestion.

    P.S, I went to the supermarket where they have five types of Nivea shower gel for men and three for women .......but none were the charcoal one. Grrrr.

    I bought the Nivea charcoal gel.

    Works well, but the scent wasn't as strong as I'd have liked.......maybe because while buying it I saw a packet of Palmolive Charcoal soap which I picked up as well. The scent of the Palmolive soap totally engulfed my bathroom after I took it out of the packet, and before I used it. with something that smelled a bit like a soapy version of Drakkar Noir or Lomani. Anyhow, after a few days that scent died down.
    Cheers,

    Considering to get this, especially given its affordable price, mainly albeit nor exclusively for BN reviewing reasons
