Sanex Advanced Review

As mentioned here, I got the chance to try out the Sanex Advanced Atopiderm shower gel and body lotion. After a month of regular use of both products it is time for a review.


The body lotion comes in a bottle with a handy pump system. You do have to be careful when you take this bottle with you on vacation, since the pump is rather fragile.
The shower gel comes in squeeze bottle that is shaped in such a way that it lies comfortably in your hand.

The product

The body lotion has a nice but subtle perfume, isn’t greasy and is immediately absorbed by the skin. The pump system allows you to use just the right amount of product without making a mess.
The shower gel with its more neutral scent gives a nice and creamy lather.

The benefits according to Sanex

The product is developed with the help of dermatologists and promises the following advantages:
– repairing the skin barrier
– care for severe dehydration
– protection against itchy skin and irritation

The results

I noticed a big difference on the dry patches on my elbows and knees after using the body lotion for a few days, although I’m not sure the results will be as promising when the weather gets wintry cold and my skin gets extremely dry, itchy and irritated.
One of my housemates benefitted immediately from the body lotion’s protection against itches and irritation when using it after a shower or a bath.

The verdict

As the body lotion really lives up to its promised results I’m fairly certain I will buy it again.
The advantages of the shower gel are a little less clear and since I almost never buy my own shower gel I probably won’t buy this product myself.
Chances of me trying the roll on deodorant are quite higher since I have a coupon and I a roll on deodorant is my go to type of deodorant for travels and festivals.

Do you have any experience with Sanex, its Advanced product lines or testing through The Insiders?


Testing, testing – The Insiders and Sanex Advanced

Remember how I mentioned that I kinda never buy any shower gel because it seems to find its way to me?
Well, through The Insiders I now get the chance to try out a shower gel as well as a body lotion from the Sanex Advanced product range.

This product range has 3 lines catering for different skin types and I have received the shower gel and the body lotion from the (yay, purple!) AtopiDerm line, which also has a hand lotion and a deodorant.

The Insiders are a “word of mouth” network and describe themselves as

The Insiders a network of influential consumers in Europe.
Insiders participate in learning more about interesting products, while receiving a free VIP product experience. They share their experiences with friends, family and colleagues and help great products to become better known.

For this specific campaign I received the above mentioned products as well as 3 more bottles of body lotion, with their own little travel logs. These bottles and logs allow me to let friends and family try out to product and write down their findings.
The box I received also contained some leaflets with discount coupons and a very comprehensive campaign guide.

I haven’t tried to product yet, but am really looking forward to it because it really smells nice.
Once I’ve tested it profoundly, I’ll write a follow-up review.
