Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extract Juicy 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). 🙂

Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance

Hi there! The last time I swung by my local Poundstretcher, they had lots of big 500ml Imperial Leather shower gels for £1. I picked up a few bottles for my husband and myself. However, I also remembered that I still had quite a few Imperial Leather shower gels in my stash…

So I decided to move Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry and Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance with plum blossom and violet from one of those boxes under the bed into the bathroom. I’ve been using these two products on and off for a few weeks now, so it’s time for a review. 🙂
Imperial Leather Shower
Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry smells like a blend of tea and flowers. I like it! The formula is simply fantastic because this body wash makes my skin feel hydrated. Wow!

Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance with plum blossom and violet is lovely. This body wash feels just as hydrating as the Funfair Nostalgia one. And I’d describe the fragrance as a dense and dark floral fragrance with a dollop of plum jam. Wonderful!

Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance are available as 250ml (drugstores, supermarkets) as well as 500ml (bargain stores). The RRP for the regular 250ml bottles is around £2, but they’re often on special for half price or less. The big 500ml bottles that you can find in bargain stores are usually around £1. 🙂

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant & Feel Glamorous

Hi there! And Merry Christmas! A few months ago I reviewed 2 shower gels from Palmolive’s Aroma Moments collection. I really loved these 2 shower gels – so I thought I should try the other 2 shower gels as well. Now meet Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant and Feel Glamorous.
Palmolive Vibrant Glamorous
Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant with goji berries, ginger essential oil and hibiscus is simply marvellous. On the bottle it says “Glossy Touch” – they weren’t kidding. This shower gel feels amazing on my skin. I love it! And the fragrance is wonderful. It smells like… a warm summer morning. 100% dreamy!

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Glamorous with blackberry, bourbon vanilla and dragon fruit is gorgeous! It’s an effective body scrub that smells… unbelievable! The fragrance is a sensationally delicious and sweet mix of red fruit jelly, tea, ice cream and berries. 100% yummy!

Palmolive Aroma Moments shower gels are available as 250ml for £2 – £3. However, the more reasonable retailers run promotions all the time, so you should be able to find these shower gels for £1 each at least every once in a while.

My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set

Hi there! A few days ago I swung by my local B&M Bargains store. I saw a My Little Pony toiletries set – and then I remembered that I bought one last year! This year’s toiletries set looks a little different, but it’s probably quite similar because it also contains 4 travel-sized (75ml) hair and body products. So read on to find out if the My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set is any good. 🙂

Let’s start with the bath bubbles! The Pinkie Pie bath gel smells of fresh green apples. I’m not really into apple-scented hair and body products because they usually don’t smell very natural. However, this apple fragrance is actually very well done. I like it!

The Fluttershy bath gel smells of mixed berries. It’s not too sweet which is nice. The berry fragrance reminds me of the flavour of M&S’ new Connie Caterpillar Berry Gums!

The Rainbow Dash shower gel smells like mixed yellow fruits. It’s not the most special fragrance, but it’s pleasant. The shower gel is also super gentle!

The Rarity shampoo doesn’t lather up very well, but it’s suprisingly clarifying. But the best thing is the fragrance. The shampoo smells of sweet and juicy raspberries. Delicious!

I paid £3.99 for this My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set. This year’s My Little Pony toiletries set is £3.99 as well. I would definitely recommend the set!

Dolly’s Mixtures Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dolly’s Mixtures’ Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel. Well, I’ve already reviewed a number of products from this brand.

And whilst I didn’t like every single product, I still wanted to give this one a chance. So let me tell you more!

OK, so I used this shower gel this morning – and I hated it right away.

As soon as I had lathered up the shower gel, it started to smell like a mix of plastic and something fizzy. It was bad. Really bad!

I don’t know who thought that bottling and selling this stuff would be a good idea. I mean, someone must have OK’ed this stuff – but why?

I’ll squeeze the contents of this bottle into the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen. And that’ll be the end of it.

Dolly’s Mixtures’ Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel is available as 300ml for £2 (I spent £1 when it was on special).

I’ve also seen Dolly’s Mixtures products on sale at Poundland – and I think that’s not a good sign. I think the entire line might be discontinued!

100% Cruelty-Free – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Vanilla Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Christmas-themed body products – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter.

These products were part of a small gift set which I bought last year. I spotted the exact same gift set at Superdrug just a few days ago. So I decided to give these products a try!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub smells like… Christmas cookies! The scrub itself is nice as well. It’s easy to spread, it’s not too harsh, but it’s effective!

Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter is lovely. The body butter is very rich, and the fragrance is the sweetest, warmest and cuddliest spicy vanilla. Fantastic stuff!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter are available as part of Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set which I saw on sale for £3.50 the other day. The body scrub and the body butter are 100ml each.

Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility Bath Creams

Hi there! Today’s review is about 2 bath products that I’ve been enjoying lately – Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility. Whilst I generally prefer a shower, nothing beats a hot bath on a cold evening. 🙂 Now, without further ado, onto the reviews!
imperial-leather-bath-03
Imperial Leather Paradise Island with peach nectar & vanilla bean smells exactly like peach nectar and vanilla! I love the gorgeous fragrance because it’s beautifully done and because it smells like… summer, sunlight, warmth and pure happiness. Awesome stuff!

Imperial Leather Sea Of Tranquility with sea samphire & marine elements is really good too. The fragrance is definitely marine, but fortunately it doesn’t smell like a bath product for men. Very nice!

All in all, I’m happy with these products and I’d recommend them – especially Paradise Island! 🙂 I bought these two 500ml bath creams for either 99p or £1 each at one of the bargain stores (I think it was Home Bargains).
