Being married, my shower is naturally filled with a variety of less than masculine bath products. While for the most part I prefer more masculine products and scents, one of my wife’s shower gels in particular is worth making an exception for. Recently my wife special ordered some Cleo brand Italian bath products. Cleo’s products are all yogurt based and come in a variety of scents or “flavors”. I recently tried the chocolate flavored yogurt shower cream by Cleo, and I must say that I have been very happy with this product, despite the fact that its intended market is primarily female.
As mentioned above, the interesting and unique thing about the Cleo brand is that all their products are made from real yogurt. The yogurt base gives all the Cleo products a creamy texture that I have not found duplicated in any other shower gel. An important factor for me is the lack of stickiness and/or oiliness. I want a shower gel that will rinse right off without leaving a residue of any sort, and the Cleo Chocolate Shower Cream rinses right off despite this creamy yogurt texture.
Even though all of the Cleo products are yogurt based and creamy, I chose to review the Cleo Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream because of its unique scent. The Cleo shower cream has perhaps the richest chocolate scent of any similar product I have ever experienced (and I have experienced quite a few due to my wife’s fondness for all things bath related). If one thinks of the rich chocolatey taste and smell of chocolate syrup, or even a chocolate breakfast cereal like Cocoa Puffs, then that is about the right ballpark to try to describe the Cleo Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream. Not to be too dramatic, but using the Cleo Shower Cream is like having breakfast in the shower. I have been told that men often prefer bath products that remind them of food (you know, the way to a man’s heart…), and the Cleo brand Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream certainly seems to be evidence of this principle in action.
The Cleo brand Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream comes in a bottle that would hardly be described as masculine: a white bottle with pink lettering and a pink cap. Men in relationships should be used to having feminine products in their bathrooms already, though, so I do not think that this should be much of a crisis for most guys. The delicious scent of chocolate in the morning shower will more than make up for the lack of masculinity of the bottle itself. Just don’t get too overwhelmed by the chocolate scent in your morning drowsiness and accidentally consume the Cleo shower gel! I would hardly mention such a silly warning but for the fact that I am tempted to take a taste every time I take a shower with Cleo Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream shower gel.
In conclusion, Cleo brand Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream shower gel is a relatively feminine shower gel and body wash that is probably has more unisex appeal than it would ever normally be given any credit for. Despite its girly white and pink bottle, once you get a whiff of the deliciousness of the chocolate smell that emanates from the bottle, you will actually start to look forward to that morning shower that you dread every morning instead of rushing to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock. The Cleo Chocolate Yogurt Shower Cream turns a shower into an experience to be savored rather than a necessary evil.
