100% Vegan – Original Source Passionfruit And Jojoba Milk Shower Milk, Original Source Orange Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I picked up at a local independent bargain store – Original Source Passionfruit & Jojoba Milk Shower Milk and Original Source Orange Shower Gel. These shower gels are imports from Germany.

Original Source Passionfruit & Jojoba Milk Shower Milk smells like the perfect fusion of juicy and tangy passionfruit and creamy jojoba. It’s very enjoyable. This shower milk is also gentle on the skin. I like it!

Original Source Orange Shower Gel is very nice. It smells like juicy oranges. This shower gel is refreshing, and I think it’s perfect for early mornings because it really wakes me up! Well done, Original Source!

Original Source Passionfruit & Jojoba Milk Shower Milk and Original Source Orange Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid 90p each.

Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion, Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream. I bought these products when they went on sale after Christmas.

I’m pretty sure this collection is sold out now, but Yves Rocher seems to be doing the same 2 collections almost every Christmas (it’s usually vanilla and berries), so they might recycle these fragrances for this year’s festive season. Who knows…

Onto the review! Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel is lovely. I would describe the fragrance as a mix of snow and vanilla. The shower gel is gentle and not drying at all, and I’m very happy with it.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion smells just as lovely as the shower gel. I also love the light formula. It’s not the most suitable body lotion for dry skin, but it absorbs in no time without leaving a sticky film behind. I think this is the perfect body lotion for when you’re in a hurry.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Hand Cream is my favourite of the bunch! This is the perfect hand cream. It feels instantly nourishing, but it doesn’t feel sticky at all. It makes my hands feel super soft, but it doesn’t feel like “product”. The cute snowy vanilla fragrance is the icing on the cake. Awesome stuff!

If you’re interested in Yves Rocher products, you have to look online since, unfortunately, Yves Rocher ceased trading in the UK 2 weeks ago.

Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger, Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Dove shower gels – Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger and Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera. Dove’s pear shower gel is completely new to me. However, Dove’s nectarine shower gel used to be one of my favourites. Then it was discontinued, and I stashed away the last bottle I had. I didn’t buy anything else from Dove for a few years, and then, all of a sudden, I found a few more bottles of Dove’s nectarine shower gel at a local bargain store. But instead of using the shower gels, I put them in a box and stored them under the bed…

I’ve now made the decision to dip into my Dove stash, and I think that Dove Go Fresh Nectarine & White Ginger is still amazing. It feels great on my skin, and it smells like nectarine yoghurt with a hint of ginger. It’s fruity, sweet, but also refreshing. My husband loves the shower gel too. I have no doubt we’ll be going through this one quickly.

Dove Go Fresh Pear & Aloe Vera is simply wonderful. The formula is kind to skin, and the shower gel smells of juicy pears and aloe vera. I love the refreshing fragrance, and my husband is quite fond of this shower gel too. Dove did a great job with this one!

Dove Go Fresh shower gels are available as 250ml, occasionally as 500ml as well. Prices vary depending on where you shop. I don’t mind picking up my Dove products for £1 at bargain stores. 😎

Palmolive Aroma Moments Shower Gels – Just Fabulous & So Luminous

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 new Palmolive shower gels which I picked up at my local Wilko store – Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous. These 2 shower gels contain oils which promise to leave your skin feeling soft. I’ve now tried these shower gels, and here’s what I think.

Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous with iris extract and avocado oil is a revelation. It smells of velvety iris petals, and it feels amazing on my skin. If you want a shower gel that feels luxuriously and that goes with Prada’s Infusion d’Iris fragrance, this is what you’re looking for! Great stuff, Palmolive!

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous with peony extract and macadamia oil feels wonderful on my skin too. The fragrance is more nutty than floral. I like it a lot, but of these two shower gels, I prefer the iris and avocado one.

Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous are available as 250ml each. Prices vary depending on where you shop. I paid 90p each (special offer).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Superdrug‘s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub. Superdrug’s own brand body butters and body scrubs seem to be disappearing from the stores. So I thought I should finally give this body scrub (which has been sitting in my stash for ages) a try. Read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good.

I think Superdrug did an amazing job with this body scrub. It’s very effective, it has the perfect consistency, it makes my skin feel insanely soft without being too harsh – and it smells like cherry ice cream! This is an amazing product, and it’s sad that Superdrug has discontinued the entire line. I bought two of these body scrubs, and I’m glad I did!

Superdrug’s Cherry & Macadamia Body Scrub is suitable for vegans. The product is also certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). This scrub is available as 200ml. It’s £4.99 but I picked it up for half price. 🙂

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet & Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise

Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. A few weeks ago, one of my friends picked up a set of 5 travel-sized Treacle Moon shower gels. My friend knows that I love fresh and fruity toiletries, so she gave me these 2 60ml shower gels. I’ve now tried (and finished) them, and here’s what I think.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet is simply wonderful. The sunny honeydew melon fragrance is 100% spot on. I love it! I hope Treacle Moon launches this fragrance in the UK. I’d be more than happy to pick up those giant 500ml bottles on a regular basis!

Since I love all things grapefruit, I had high hopes for Treacle Moon‘s Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. However, this shower gel isn’t great. It smells like warm plastic and fruit. If I hadn’t known that it’s supposed to be a grapefruit fragrance, I would never have guessed it! I’ve also looked up every single grapefruit shower gel that I’ve used over the past 4 years (thanks to my blog, this took me less than 2 minutes), and this one is the only one I didn’t like.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise are available as part of a 5-piece shower gel gift set (5x60ml). My friend bough the set in Germany. I have never come across these 2 fragrances over here in the UK, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for Happy Melon Sorbet!

The Battle Of The Unicorns – Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower And Bath vs. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak

Hi there! I haven’t done a product comparison for quite some time. So when I saw these 2 unicorn-themed products, I thought they would be perfect for a comparison post! And here’s how these 2 products fared. 🙂

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower & Bath is good but not great. The fragrance is best described as a sugared violet sweets fragrance. It’s enjoyable but very fleeting. The formula is nice. I wouldn’t say the shower gel is hydrating, but it certainly doesn’t make my skin feel dry. Like I said, this shower gel is good but not great.

Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak was a nice surprise! From the bottle it smells terribly bland, and I thought this one might end up in the hand wash dispenser. However, I’m glad I gave this product a try because once it hits the skin, it smells pleasantly floral and soapy. Whilst the fragrance isn’t very special, I do like it. I’m also happy to report that this product doesn’t make my skin feel dry.

Whilst I ended up liking both products, I think Carex‘s Unicorn Magic is the better product. The cute fragrance fits the cute unicorn theme perfectly.

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic is available as Hand Wash and Shower & Bath.I paid £1 for the 500ml Shower & Bath. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak is available as Shower Gel and Bath Soak. I paid £1 for the 500ml Bath Soak.
