VO5 Men's 3-in-1 Review
In my bathtub, for what seems like forever, I've had a shampoo/conditioner in one bottle and a body wash in another. Occasionally, I've tried 3-in-1 products that combined the two, but I never liked the consistency of the product, where I could use it for both hair and body. I've even tried my son's kid-friendly 3-in-1 products, like with Spiderman on the bottle. All to no avail. I recently received a couple of bottle of Men's 3-in-1 from VO5 to try out. Below are my thoughts....

First off, it comes in two scents Fresh Energy and Ocean Surge. The Fresh Energy smells very familiar and reminds me of another green shampoo, perhaps like soapy flowers. Not too strong. The Ocean Surge scent is less familiar but a little stronger "clean" scent, more soap, less flower. Both come in the familiar five essential vitamin formula, now for both hair and body. Price-wise, they're at the low end of the scale, where I found them online for $1.29 each at, though their suggested retail price is $0.99 for 12.5 oz.

I tried out both scents and found both performed well, where neither performed better than the other. For the body, it acted like a body wash should, foaming up when rubbed together in hands, to get a good lathering. It also felt fine washing my face. That is one area where trying out past 3-in-1 products had failed. The other place was in the hair department, where past products didn't lather up enough. Here, we got a good amount of suds in the hair, and it felt clean when all done.

I don't use any products in my hair like gel, creams, or hairspray so I don't know how well it would work with those. Also, I could imagine someone using either scent as a shaving cream if you've run out and need to get out but need a shave first..

In the end... I like the products. I like the price. When I'm in the market again for a similar product, I'll definitely consider picking up V05
