Lynx The Golden Year with exclusive floating / shower speaker
Lynx Black with exclusive floating / shower speaker

Internal Quality Assurance checks have shown that a small number of Lynx The Golden Year with exclusive floating / shower speaker and Lynx Black with exclusive floating / shower speaker have a defect which means the cable may overheat when charging the speaker.

The safety of the people that buy and use our products is always a priority at Unilever, so as a precaution, we are recalling this product which means consumers are being asked to return the charging cable whilst we continue to conduct an on-going and thorough investigation with the supplier. In the meantime, please do not use either the charging cable or the speaker.

The products (with barcodes) being recalled are:
8710447348123 Lynx The Golden Year with exclusive floating / shower speaker
8710522349168 Lynx Black with exclusive floating / shower speaker


The personal care items contained within these gift packs are not affected and are safe to use. We can also confirm that no other Unilever or Lynx products are affected, including other gift packs containing a wireless shower speaker.

If you have either of the items listed above, or if you require any further assistance or information, please contact our Consumer Careline. Your statutory rights are not affected.


We are working on procedures to ensure this fault does not happen again in any of the products supplied to us, and would like to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and understanding. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
