The Battle Of The 100% Cruelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists – Anovia Light & Refreshing Strawberry & Kiwi vs. MPM Just Fruit Simply Strawberry

Hi there! I haven’t done any product comparisons in a long time. However, I’ve had two untried strawberry-scented body mists in my stash for ages, so I thought it’s time for The Battle Of The 100% Cuelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists! Now meet Anovia’s Light & Refreshing Strawberry & Kiwi Body Mist and MPM’s Just Fruit Simply Strawberry Body Mist.

Let’s start with Anovia’s Strawberry & Kiwi Body Mist! This body mist promises light moisturisation and delicately fragranced skin. Whilst I’m not sure whether this product really moisturises my skin, I think the fragrance is actually quite nice. Thanks to the kiwi note, this body mist is considerably fresher than your average strawberry-scented body mist. Well done, Anovia! Oh, and Anovia’s products are made in the UK, and they’re cruelty-free!

Now let’s take a closer look at MDM’s Just Fruit Simply Strawberry Body Mist! This body mist promises to leave skin smelling delicately fruity – and that’s exactly what it does! I think this strawberry fragrance is also one of the most pleasant ones I’ve ever smelled. I have to admit that I don’t like strawberry-scented products in general. That’s because most of them smell like strawberries that are about to go off. However, this Just Fruit body mist, which was made in England and is cruelty-free, doesn’t have that obnoxious overly ripe stench that almost all the other strawberry-scented products out there have. Well done, MPM!

Now let’s get to the actual comparison! I think that both body mists are really nice. Anovia’s body mist is fresher, so it’s more suitable for the warmer seasons. However, the Just Fruit body mist is sweeter and, obviously, it’s all about strawberries. Both body mists are available in 150ml bottles. The Anovia body mist is £1 at Poundland, the Just Fruit body mist is 79p at Home Bargains.

I don’t think The Battle Of The 100% Cuelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists has a winner. I would definitely recommend both products. If you want a strawberry-scented body spray that smells fresh and authentic, forget about Boots or TBS. Just try these body mists!

Made In The UK – Anovia Fragranced Body Mists With Fruit Extracts – Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple, Sensual Marula & Argan

Hi there! A few weeks ago I bought lots of new products. And today’s post is about two of them – Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple and Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Marula & Argan.

These two body mist are made in the UK, they’re paraben-free, and they contain real fruit extracts! This sounds great, I know. But I haven’t told you about the best thing yet. OK, the best thing is that these 150ml body mists are 79p only at Home Bargains! Now let me tell you if they’re any good.

The Passion Fruit & Pineapple body mist is very fruity. It’s tropical and tangy – like passion fruits. And it’s also sweet and juicy – like pineapples! Whilst this body mist isn’t particularly long-lasting (it’s just a body mist after all), the fruity scent is refreshing and very pleasant while it lasts.

The Sensual Marula & Argan body mist is very nice. It smells warm, cuddly, feminine, and yes, sensual! It lasts longer than the fruity body mist, so if I douse myself in it, it lingers for almost half a day.

I think these body mists are really nice. They’re certainly as good as the considerably more expensive body mists that you can buy on the high street. Sure, these body mists aren’t ‘real’ perfumes, so you can’t expect them to last for long on your skin. However, they cling to fabrics, so I spray them on my scarves as well. 🙂

I would definitely recommend these body mists if you’re looking for a cheap pick-me-up or if you want a new body mist to pop into your handbag. I also think these body mists would be great for young teenage girls who are just getting into fragrances – that’s because these two scents are pleasant, they’re not too strong, and they’re cheap!

Have you tried these body mists? Or would you like to try them? Have you ever had anything from this brand?  Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

22 New Products – Home Bargains, Poundworld, Poundland & Asda Beauty Haul

Hi there! If you read my blog, and if you remember this post – you know I’d like to get away from being a beauty and toiletries hoarder. However, I simply can’t resist a bargain when I see one. Now let’s have a look at the new stuff that’s going to be stashed away somewhere at my place…
haul-10
I found these NSPA shower gels at Home Bargains – for 79p each. These are 500ml and they’re normally £3 at Asda. I think these ones are going to be discontinued. 😦 By the way, all NSPA products are made in the UK.
haul-11
Home Bargains also had a few nice and cheap body mists. From left to right: Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Argan & Marula 150ml, Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple 150ml, Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist100ml, NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Body Mist 200ml.

The Dolly’s Mixtures Body Mist was 49p (usually £2 at Asda), the other three body mists were 79p each. I’ve never seen the brand Anovia anywhere before today, so I can’t comment on what their products cost elsewhere, but the NSPA fragrances are usually £3 at Asda. Oh, and all these body mists were made in the UK!

Up next we’ve got Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine shampoo & conditioner. They’re 300ml each and they were £1 each (special offer) at Asda. The next item is NSPA’s Cherry Body Scrub – also from Home Bargains. The 225ml scrub set me back 79p (instead of £3 at Asda). The eyeshadow brush is from Poundworld – of course it was £1.

And here’s the actual beauty stuff – 2 Barry M eyeshadows (£1 for the pack of 2), 2 Sally Hansen nail polishes, 2 Max Factor eyeshadows, 2 Max Factor nail polishes, 2 L’Oréal nail polishes and 1 Rimmel nail polish which is a backup. Some of these products came from Poundland, some from Poundworld. All in all I paid £10 in total for all these eyeshadows and nail polishes.

Yes, I stocked up on stuff I didn’t really need. But everything was so cheap. In fact I only paid £19.02 for everything! I live for bargains, you know. Bargain hunting might actually be ma raison d’être. 🙂 Have you done any shopping recently? Any hauls you’d like to tell me about? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for reading!
