Hi there! About two months ago I told you that I found two cute I Love… gift sets at my local Asda. One of the gift sets contained summery shower gels, the other set contained winter-themed shower gels. Of the six summery shower gels only two were interesting (and new) to me.
However, I found four of the six winter-themed shower gels tempting. The two shower gels that I didn’t care for were Cherry Almond Sparkle (had it last year, it annoyed me half way through the bottle) and Spiced Cinnamon (I gave it a sniff and I knew I wouldn’t like it). I gave these two away with the four summery shower gels that I didn’t love.
And the four winter-themed shower gels I kept were I Love… Sugared Cranberries (which I’ve already reviewed), Chocolates & Oranges, Iced Cookie and Mixed Berries. Now let me tell you more…
I Love… Chocolates & Oranges disappointed me. Yes, it smells somewhat chocolately, and yes, it also smells somewhat orangey, but it doesn’t smell delicious at all. It smells more like cheap dish soap. I’ll finish this shower gel (fortunately it’s only a 100ml bottle), but I have to say that it’s definitely one of my least favourite shower products ever.
I Love… Iced Cookie is very nice! It’s cookies and icing and Christmas… This shower gels reminds me of the extremely delicious soft and fluffy German gingerbread thingies (?) I stuffed my face with when we visited Cologne a few years ago. So yeah, this shower gel is awesome!
I Love… Mixed Berries is a decent shower gel. It doesn’t smell particularly christmassey but the fragrance is pleasant. It’s fruity, but it’s not a sugarbomb. Nice!
I found my two I Love… sets (6 different shower gels per set, 100ml per bottle) 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 end up loving one (or several) of the shower gels, you won’t be able to buy a full-size bottle.
Reblogged this on Beauty for Old Bags!.
I was hoping the Chocolate & Oranges one would be good since it sounds unique! How disappointing!
