I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath & Shower Cream

Hi there! Today’s short post is about this I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath & Shower Crème which I started to use just last week.

I’ve used a lot of different I Love… products over the past few years, but I only just tried the raspberry & blackberry products – I fell in love with the amazingly refreshing I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Refreshing Body Spritzer. So it was about time for me to try the matching shower gel!

To make a long story short – this shower gel is amazing. I love the fresh and fruity berry fragrance. It’s wonderfully lively and uplifting. I can’t get enough of it!

I’d recommend this shower gel! I’m glad I have a few bottles in my stash. 😇

I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath & Shower Crème is available as 250ml and 500ml.

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon & Stamping With Nicole Diary 076

Hi there! I’ve got a short Nail Of The Day post for you.

For this many I painted my nails with Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon (2 coats). This is an amazing polish. The colour is pretty and the formula is easy to work with and quick-drying. 😻

For the images I used my Nicole Diary 076 stamping plate. And I double-stamped. I used a black Rimmel polish as well as Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

I liked this mani a lot. I know I’ve done similar manis before, but I can’t get enough of this stamping plate, so I’ll do similar manis in the future.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair care products I’m using at the moment – Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner. I love all things grapefruit, and I Iove big hair too – so I thought I need to try these products asap!

I’m pretty sure that Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner is volumising when used on its own. It feels like it’s roughing up my hair with every wash. The shampoo smells nice from the bottle, but it’s rather bland once it hits the palm of my hand. The fragrance isn’t bad, it’s just… unspectacular.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner detangles my hair with ease, but it also seems to undo the volumising effect of the shampoo. And the fragrance is too boring for my taste.

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t buy these products again. I’ll finish them, but I’ll happily move on to another shampoo and conditioner combo. If you’re interested, Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditoner are available as 400ml each for £5.99 each. I spent £2.97 each (half price offer).

L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash

Hi there! I’ve got a skin care review for you today, and it’s about this L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash with rose and jasmine.

This soap-free face wash is aimed at people with dry & sensitve skin, and it promises to cleanse, purify and soften the skin.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now, and I think it’s very nice.

Whilst I don’t think that it made a huge difference to what my face looks or feels like, I think it’s great at cleansing my skin properly without aggravating it or drying it out.

Based on my experience, I would recommend this face wash. I can definitely see myself buying it again!

L’Oréal Fine Flowers Gel-Cream Wash with rose and jasmine is available as 150ml for £3.99. I paid £1.99 (special offer, Boots).

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Barry M Espresso & Stamping With UR Sugar UR-L017

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (2 coats, ring fingers and pinkies).

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Barry M Espresso (2 coats). This is a matte nail polish, so I used clear polish for a shiny finish.

For the images I used my new UR Sugar UR-L017 stamping plate. The polish I stamped with is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

I liked this mani a lot, and I can’t wait to do the next mixed mani!

Empties – June 2020

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in June. As always, I used a number of single-use face masks, and if you’d like to read about my latest face mask findings, you can click here. Now let’s focus on the big bottles and tubes.

1 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Refreshing Toning Mist – this is an amazing face mist which I’ll buy again for sure!

2 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower With Hibiscus & White Sage Scent – this is a nice shower gel. I’ll buy this again in the future.

3 Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Wash – I love this stuff! I might have a few more tubes in my stash – I certainly hope so because the entire Extracts collection has been discontinued. 😢

4 Beauty UK 76 Jade – this is a good quality polish! I won’t repurchase it though because I have at least 15 very similar shades in my stash.

5 CND Creative Play Top Coat – this is an amazing top coat. I found it at Poundland! I’m glad I have a few more of these in my stash.

6 Boots Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum – this is a lovely serum. I have one more, and I’m halfway through the second tube as well. I will repurchase the current version of this serum, no doubt!

7 Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude – I love this lipgloss! This is already the 2nd one of these that I’ve gone through. I have one more, and I aim to finish it this or next month.

8 Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil – this is a very rich facial oil. It has served me very well. However, I didn’t care for its strong smell, so I won’t repurchase this one.

9 The Body Shop Frosted Berries Shower Gel – I liked the sweet berry fragrance, but the formula was just too drying.

10 Herbal Essences Silk N’ Shine Conditioner – this is my HOLY GRAIL conditioner. It has been discontinued but I’m sitting on a significant stash of original Herbal Essences shampoos and conditioners. 😁

11 Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You – I loved this one! I think I’ll buy it again!

12 Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser – this cleanser is good but it’s not in my all-time favourites, so I don’t think that I’ll buy it again.

13 Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream – This is an amazing eye cream. I hope I can find it again.

14 Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Lotion – I loved this body lotion. Too bad it has been discontinued.

15 Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray – another sensational Boots Extracts product that I’ll miss dearly!

16 I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Refreshing Body Spritzer – this is a lovely all-over body spray. I have at least 1 more of these in my stash.

I think June has been another amazing month for empties. I hope I can continue the streak! 😂

Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! 😊

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel

Vaseline Cocoa Oil GelHi there! Today’s post is about this Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel.

This body gel promises to nourish skin and to leave skin with a healthy looking glow.

I’ve been using this product for 2 weeks now. Whilst I think that this isn’t the most suitable moisturiser for this time of year, I’m still very happy with it.

I’ve tried this oil gel on dry and on damp skin. I prefer to use it on dry skin – but it works well either way.

The cocoa fragrance is simply amazing. It smells like… paradise! Wow!

I also agree that this oil gel makes my skin glow – so what’s not to love?

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel is available as 200ml for about £5.79. I paid £2.59 (better than half price offer).
