Default Imperial Leather Foamburst now finally available in the USA

Yes i have found the worlds greatest shower gel at my local supermarket, it's the exact same Imperial Leather Foamburst, same can but different printing, it's even (gasp) Made in England! In the US it is called 'Dial for Men' Speed Foam (in 3 flavors) . . . they sell it at my local Publix here in Florida but also Walgreens apparently.

Post Re: Imperial Leather Foamburst now finally available in the USA

I may be a saddo but there are certain smells or products which always remind me of England and which I can't easily replicate here.

I always buy a few bars of Imperial Leather to bring back to the US. I also try to squeeze in my suitcase some 'Radox' shower cream, the ''Original Source Just Mint' (Tea Tree) shampoo and or shower gel (gives a lovely tingle!) but recently I actually brought back a 'Mega Size' bottle of Fairy dishwashing liquid (had to wrap it up tightly so it didn't spill in my case lol!)

I just adore the smell of the original Fairy Liquid - it's made by Proctor & Gamble and I just wish their products outside the UK had the same aroma as 'Fairy'...

http://www.fairy-dish.co.uk/uk/fairy/product

Oh, I also squeeze in the large 200g size of Nescafe Gold Blend freeze dried coffee as well! It's much smoother than other instant coffee available in the States with no bitter taste. It's not worth making a large pot of fresh coffee when I'm on my own at home and just want one cup and the Gold Blend just hits the spot if I don't fancy a cup of tea.

Fairy has to be my favorite too.
I used to love the big green bars of soap in the kitchen.

Our kids have a good laugh when we refer to using 'fairy liquid' on something.

Great post, moving to Dallas in a few weeks. My sister lives there and I have been ordered to bring as many Foam bursts as possible.

Hopefully she may be able to buy similar in Dallas now.

Shower Gel. How I miss it! I have people bring "Lemon Source" by the case load when they visit.

That and Kit Kat Chunkies...

I used to use the Imperial Leather version, then found the new Lynx (Axe) options worked better for me, but this is still good news.

Now, what I want is the Vaseline for Men anti-perspirant spray (for me) and the Vaseline Aloe Fresh spray (for her) to become available here! What do Americans have against deodorant/anti-perspirant sprays?

I miss this stuff. You can get it here but at a stupid price of course.
