Hi there! Not too long ago I found a few cute I Love… gift sets at my local Asda. Each set contained six different shower gels (100ml each). And there were two different sets to choose from – one of these sets was Christmas-themed, the other one contained summery and fruity shower gels.
The fragrances in the fruity set were Coconut & Cream (I don’t like coconuts), Strawberries & Cream (I don’t like strawberry aromas in toiletries), Mango & Papaya (I have a big 500ml bottle of this one), Raspberry & Blackberry (I have several full size bottles), Lemons & Limes and Vanilla & Ice Cream. Only the last two shower gels were new (and interesting) to me, so I kept these. I gave the remaining four shower gels to a teenage relative.
So today I’ll tell you if I Love… Lemons & Limes and Vanilla & Ice Cream Bubble Bath & Shower Crème are any good. I’ve also decided to include my thoughts on the Sugared Cranberries Bath & Shower Crème (this one was in the Christmas-themed set) in this review. I’ll be reviewing the remainder of the Christmas-themed keepsies shortly.
I Love… Lemons & Limes is a decent shower gel. I don’t think this product is particularly moisturising, but it doesn’t make my skin feel dry. The fragrance isn’t too fizzy or too cool, it’s more like candied lemons and limes. So this one is definitely suitable for colder days too.
I Love… Vanilla & Ice Cream is a revelation. Whilst the shower gel isn’t very moisturising, its fragrance is one of the most gorgeous vanilla fragrances I’ve ever smelled. It really smells like vanilla ice cream! This shower gel is that good that my husband snatched it – at least I got to use it once! 🙂 Too bad this one isn’t part of I Love…’s permanent collection. I’d be buying the big 500ml bottles all the time!
I Love… Sugared Cranberries is a really nice shower gel. It smells sweet, fruity and warm, and I think it fits the sugared cranberries theme perfectly. It’s not the most original fragrance, but it’s definitely enjoyable!
I found my two I Love… sets (6 different shower gels per set, 100ml each) for £2.99 each at my local Asda. Unfortunately the majority of the fragrances in these sets aren’t part of I Love…’s permanent collection. So if you find these sets at your local Asda (or wherever), just buy them. I’m sure you won’t regret it. 🙂
