Reducing My Oldies Stash – Possibility Amber & Lavender Bath and Shower Body Scrub

Possibility Amber Lavender ScrubHi there! Today’s post is about Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub.

This product has been sitting in my stash for quite some time. But I enjoyed the matching shower and bath gel, so I thought it’s time to give this body scrub a try.

I’ve been using this body scrub on and off for over 2 weeks now, and have to say that I really like it!

The formula is very interesting – possibly unique! It’s a transparent gel that feels lightweight and stiff at the same time.

I really like the amber and lavender fragrance. It’s surprisingly elegant, and it reminds me of some of Imperial Leather’s dreamiest shower gels. The exfoliating effect is noticeable but gentle. This product is definitely suitable for daily use.

Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub is available as 200ml. I paid 99p (bargain store – but not sure which one).

Nivea Shower Gels – Waterlily & Oil And Powerfruit Fresh

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Nivea Waterlily & Oil and Nivea Powerfruit Fresh. I haven’t used Nivea products for quite some time, so I thought it’s time to give some of their shower gels another try. 🙂

Nivea Waterlily & Oil is simply wonderful. It smells sweet and fresh, and it doesn’t have that weird and unpleasant algae note that many lotus or water lily scented products have. The oil pearls are pretty awesome too. I really like this one. Awesome stuff, Nivea!

Nivea Powerfruit Fresh is alright. From the bottle it smells gorgeous. However, the scent isn’t as great once the shower gel hits the skin – it starts to smell a bit like warm plastic. The formula is great. The shower gels feels amazing on the skin. However, because of the fragrance I won’t buy it again.

Nivea Waterlily & Oil and Nivea Powerfruit Fresh are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each (bargain store).

You Need This In Your Life – Malki Dead Sea The Miraculous Source Natural Sulphur Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about Malki‘s Dead Sea The Miraculous Source Natural Sulphur Soap. This soap contains palm oil, olive oil, and coconut oil, as well as sulphur and Dead Sea salt. Since sulfur and Dead Sea salt are known to help with skin ailments like eczema, acne, and psoriasis, I was interested. Then I discovered that this soap is free of detergents and animal fat – and I knew I had to have it! I started to use this soap 4 weeks ago, and I’m blown away. Now let me tell you why I love this product!

First of all, this soap smells like soap. If you read somewhere that this soap has a strong sulphur smell, don’t believe it. Some people just never experienced the smell of good old-fashioned soap!

Alrighty… when I used the soap for the first time, I used it on my body and on my face. It doesn’t lather up like a shower gel or a face wash, but it cleanses skin very well. It also removed most of my make-up which was nice (but since it’s a soap, I wouldn’t recommend using it around the eyes).

Right after I got out of the shower, my skin felt super clean, yet not stripped. I didn’t use any body lotion afterwards, and I had no issues with dry skin at all. I loved it!

But here’s the best bit – the soap took care of the bumpy rash (probably some kind of heat or sweat rash) that has been bugging me for most of this summer. The rash was 50% better after one shower using the soap, and it was completely gone after just a few days. I’m now using this soap 2-3 times per week, and I think it does wonders for my skin. I haven’t had a single spot in 4 weeks, I have no new rashes or dry patches. And even my semi-permanent ezcema patch has been looking really calm and almost colourless for almost 4 weeks now.

I know I will use this soap forever (assuming it won’t ever be discontinued) – and my husband feels the same way! This is probably the best product I’ve tried all year. I would recommend this soap to everyone, especially to those with skin problems. If you’re not giving this soap a try, well, that’s your own fault really!

Malki‘s Dead Sea The Miraculous Source Natural Sulphur Soap is available as 90g for £3.75 (Boots).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser. This product promises soft and smooth skin as well as all-day hydration. It contains shea butter, horse chestnut extract, and vitamins A, E, B5, F and H.

How does it work? This is an in-shower moisturiser. Apply it to your wet skin whilst you’re still in the shower – pretty much right after you’ve rinsed off your shower gel. Once you’ve massaged the moisturiser into your skin, it’s already time to rinse it off as well. Then pat your skin dry with a towel. Done!

I’ve used this product on and off for quite some time now, and I must say that I love it! This is the perfect moisturiser for when I’m in a hurry because it takes just 1 minute to moisturise and rinse. And the result is beautifully hydrated skin. The lovely fragrance (which is the same as the All Over Body Cream) is an added bonus!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s vegan and certified cruelty-free!. The product is available as 250ml for £2.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price Promotions on their Vitamin E Skin Care line almost all the time. 😉

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – Precious & Irresistible

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious! This shower gel with rosewater and sandalwood smells simply amazing. I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of sunlight and amber. It’s… wow! The moisturising argan oil pearls are effective too. This is the perfect shower gel for those hot summer days when you can’t bring yourself to use a body lotion.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible with Indian lotus and waterlily is just as amazing. I’d describe it as the perfect mermaid shower gel! The marine fragrance is surprisingly sophisticated, and I know I’ll be enjoying it very much these next few weeks.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible are available as 250ml. They have disappeared from the drugstore and supermarket shelves, but they’re available at bargain stores. I picked these up for 89p each at B&M Bargains!

Daily Defense Body Wash – Moisturizing Argan Oil & Moisturizing Pomegranate

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Daily Defense shower products – Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash and Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash. These 2 products were made in Canada, and they’re cruelty-free!

Alright, let’s start with Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash! I’ve been using this shower gel on and off since November. And I like it a lot! This shower gel feels gentle and hydrating (!), and it smells warm and creamy. Very nice! My husband tried this shower gel as well – and he agrees. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash is nice too. It feels just as gentle as the argan oil shower gel. I’d describe the fragrance as a pink fruity mixture. It’s not the most exciting fragrance for a shower gel, but it’s nice enough.

Daily Defense Argan Oil Body Wash and Daily Defense Pomegranate Body Wash are available as 473ml and 946ml. I paid 99p for the big Argan Oil Body Wash and £1.79 for the big Pomegranate Body Wash.

If you’d like to try Daily Defense products, you should swing by your local Home Bargains and Pounstretcher stores! 🙂

Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher’s Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel. This product contains fruit seeds and ground apricot stones. These exfoliants are 100% natural. And the raspberry extract is organic!

I’ve been using this product twice a week for a few weeks now, and I like it!

The raspberry fragrance is sweet and natural. And the exfoliants do a great job. Thanks to the shower gel formula, this product doesn’t just exfoliate, it also cleanses the skin properly. This product mops the floor with those hard to spread and sticky sugar scrubs!

Yves Rocher’s Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel has been discontinued. Whilst Yves Rocher continues to make exfoliating shower gels, the raspberry fragrance has been replaced with a raspberry & peppermint fragrance.
