Café De Bain Softening Shower Gel – Sweet Vanilla Madeleine, Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte

Hi there! Today’s post is about Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes which I picked up a little while ago (Superdrug).

Let’s start with Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine! This shower cream smells like Werther’s Originals Butter Candies. 100% delicious! I also like that this shower cream is not drying at all. This one’s really nice!

Café De Bain Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower cream is just as gentle on the skin. This shower cream smells sweet and fruity, but it’s not sugary-sweet. I’d describe the scent as a mix of milk and red fruits with a hint of coconut.

Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes are available as 250ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.49 each (half price offer). 🙂

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products that I’ve been using since December – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil. These products are cruelty-free, and they were made in Canada!

I don’t have dry hair. I bought these products because I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s Keratin products and their Argan Oil products. And now that I’ve been using the Macadamia Oil products for a few weeks now, let me tell you if they’re equally good. 🙂

The shampoo is very nice. It feels wonderful. I’d describe the formula as creamy, dreamy and soothing. However, the shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel oily at all. It makes my hair and scalp feel cleansed and nourished at the same time. Awesome!

The conditioner is just as lovely. It helps me detangle my hair with ease, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky without making it feel or look oily. It’s definitely in my all-time top 10 of conditioners!

I think these 2 products are wonderful. And I would recommend them to everyone! Oh, and in case you’re wondering… these two products smell like a mix of shea butter and coconut water.

Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil are available as 473ml each for about £1. If you want to try Daily Defense’s awesome products, you need to swing by your local bargain stores!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask

Hi there! Today’s skin care post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask.

This mask is exclusive to Primark where I picked it up for 90p!

Onto the review! I think this face mask is nice. It’s not as thick as most other clay masks, but it works just fine.

I also like that it’s a scrub mask, so it exfoliates my skin twice – once when I apply the mask, and then again right before I rinse it off.

And the sweet vanilla and sugar fragrance makes the mask smell almost good enough to eat! Tempting! 😀

Montagne Jeunesse’s Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling & Stamping With Pueen 76

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling. I love this colour!

I used Pueen’s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms to stamp delicate images onto my nails.

I really liked how this mani turned out! The golden images look great on the vintage rose coloured background. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extract Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s review is about Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion. I’ve had these products for a while, but just a few days ago I spotted a 4-piece Boots Extracts shower gel set which contained this satsuma shower gel (plus mango, strawberry and coconut). So I thought I should try and review these satsuma products!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash is lovely. It smells tangy and fresh. It’s the perfect early morning shower gel that wakes you up! I also like that the shower gel doesn’t feel drying. Nice one, Boots!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion is very well done. It smells just as refreshing as as the shower gel. And the formula is lovely too. It feels rich, but it’s not sticky, so it’s great for when you’re in a hurry but you still want to moisturise your skin.

I think that Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma is one of the nicest limited editions Boots ever did! I don’t remember how much I paid for these products, but if Boots brings these beauties back for Christmas 2018, I’ll buy another satsuma set (or two). 🙂

Olay Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo

Hi there! Today’s product is about Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo with aloe vera and cucumber extracts.

This product promises effective cleansing by removing make-up and impurities. In addition, it claims to hydrate the skin.

How does it work? You can use the cleanser with a cotton wool pad, or you can massage it into your skin and then “polish it off” with a damp muslin cloth.

Apparently you can also use it as a moisturiser (it says so on the back).

So how’s the product? I like it. It dissolves and removes my make-up with ease. Whilst I’m not using this product as a moisturiser, I can feel that it’s hydrating, and I believe it has helped me stay on top of my dry patches this winter.

In summary, I think this cleanser is really nice. I would recommend it to everyone with normal to dry and / or sensitive skin.

Olay’s Hydration & Cleansing 2 In 1 Cleanser & Moisturiser Duo
is exclusive to Superdrug. The 200ml bottle is £2.99. I paid £1.48 (better than half price offer).
