Carex Original Shower Gel, Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower products – Carex Original Shower Gel and Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream. I picked these up for £1 each (Poundland). I’ve been using these shower gels for a little while now, and here’s what I think.

Carex Original Shower Gel was a nice surprise. This shower gel has a very pleasant, refreshing and transparent blue fragrance. It isn’t spectacular, but it’s very well done, and I think it’s definitely one of the best unisex shower gels I’ve ever tried. I would repurchase it!

Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream is the best “white” shower cream I’ve ever used. I love the cute fragrance which I can’t really describe… but I’d say the shower gel smells like multi-vitamin juice mixed with velvet and sunshine. 😜 I think the formula is lovely too, and I agree with Carex that this shower cream is moisturising. I’ll buy this one again for sure! Well done, Carex!

Carex Original Shower Gel and Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream are available as 250ml and 500ml. Prices depend on where you shop. I paid £1 each for the big bottles (Poundland).

Good Things Spa Acai Berry Daily Essential Body Wash, Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Good Things Spa Acai Berry Daily Essential Body Wash and Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash. I’m not entirely sure where I bought these 2 products (I want to say Superdrug, but it’s been a while), but they’re available at TK Maxx (my local store has plenty of Good Things Spa face and body care) as well as through the 2 major global online marketplaces… Alrighty, onto the reviews!

Good Things Spa Acai Berry Daily Essential Body Wash smells of sweet berries, mainly raspberries. I’m enjoying the fragrance very much! I’m also happy with the formula because this shower gel feels cleansing and refreshing without making my skin feel dry.

Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash smells of the most wonderful mix of honey and vanilla. The fragrance is gorgeous! I also like the formula. It’s something between a shower cream and a shower oil. I like it a lot!

Good Things Spa Acai Berry Daily Essential Body Wash and Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash are available as 200ml.

Ted Baker London Body Wash, Body Spray, Bubble Bath & Body Soufflé

Hi there! I received this Ted Baker gift set for Christmas last year. I wouldn’t have chosen it for myself because I don’t care for the brand, but I’m glad I received this gift set because I got the chance to try these products! 😊

This gift set contains 4 products – a body wash, a bubble bath, a body soufflé and a body spray. Onto the reviews!

The body wash is a clear gel. It lathers up reasonably well, and it cleanses my skin gently. The fragrance is a bit random but nice enough.

The body spray isn’t my favourite product of the bunch because it’s a “floral alcohol hairspray” type of fragrance. It doesn’t smell terrible, and I think I might have loved it if I were a teenager (… do you remember Chipie?), but it’s not something I would choose for myself now. On a positive note, my husband says he likes the smell of this body spray, and I would definitely consider buying it as a present for a teenage relative.

I think the bubble bath is the same product as the shower gel. Same consistency / thickness, smells the same, feels the same on my skin…

Last but not least… the body soufflé! I’m really enjoying this moisturiser because it feels very hydrating without being sticky. This one’s definitely suitable for warm-to-hot summer days!

All in all, I’m grateful that I received this gift set, and I’m glad that I had the chance to try these products!

Primark PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Primark’s PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub. I saw this product at my local Primark a few weeks ago, and I just had to have it! At the moment I’m actually trying to finish 2 different body scrubs, but hey, it’s summer, and this stuff is watermelon-scented… 🌞 🍉

I’ve already used this body scrub a few times, and I love it! It’s effective but not too harsh, and the watermelon ice cream fragrance is to die for! This is one of my favourite products this summer. 🥰 11 stars!

Primark’s PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub is available as 475ml for £3. Go! Buy!

Body-X Endless Weekend & Feel Enchanted Shower Gels

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels that I found at my local B&M store – Body-X Endless Weekend and Body-X Feel Enchanted. I thought the bottles looked nice, so I had a sniff. And since I liked what I smelled, I bought these shower gels.

So how’s Body-X Endless Weekend? This is a very refreshing shower gel. It smells “blue” and marine with a bit of lemon. I think this is a great summer unisex shower gel!

Body-X Feel Enchanted is a gorgeous floral shower gel. It smells of poppies and other flowers. I love the transparent feel of the fragrance – it’s very enjoyable in this weather.

I like these 2 shower gels a lot, and I would recommend them! Body-X Endless Weekend and Body-X Feel Enchanted are available as 500ml each. I paid £1 (B&M Bargains).

Nivea Shower Creams – Free Time & Harmony Time

Hi there! Today’s post is about Nivea‘s Free Time and Harmony Time Shower Creams. I’ve had these 2 products in my stash for quite some time, and I’ve finally gotten around to giving them a try.

Nivea Free Time smells wonderfully refreshing. The aloe and star fruit fragrance is gorgeous. I also love the formula because it’s not drying at all. Well done, Nivea!
Nivea Shower 1
Nivea Harmony Time was a nice surprise. I thought it would have a random rose scent, but it smells of sweet almond milk. It’s absolutely lovely! As expected, the shower cream formula is gentle on my dry and moody skin.

I think Nivea did a great job with these shower creams. I’ll continue to use them, and I can definitely see myself repurchasing both shower creams. Nivea Free Time and Harmony Time Shower Creams are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest, Palmolive Welcome to Japanese Garden

Hi there! Today’s post is about these new Palmolive shower gels that I picked up at my local Superdrug store – Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden. These shower gels are limited editions. And to find out whether I should stock up, I gave them a try right away. 🙂

Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest is a super lovely shower gel. It smells warm and tropical with a touch of cocoa (maybe sandalwood as well). It’s not a pineapple shower gel at all – I doubt there’s even a hint of pineapple fragrance in it. However, I’m not unhappy because this shower gel is gorgeous!

Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden is a pure cherry blossom shower gel. I’m used to cherry blossom and vanilla fragrances, and because of this I think this shower gel is missing something. However, if you love the smell of pure cherry blossoms (I mean, who doesn’t?), you should give this shower gel a try. It’s very nice, I promise!

I think Palmolive did a great job with these shower gels. The fragrances are beautiful, and the creamy formula is great for dry skin. Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).
