NSPA Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA‘s Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Shower & Bath Gel.

I had this shower gel stashed away for quite some time, and I almost forgot about it. But about 2 weeks ago I did an inventory of one of the boxes under the bed (don’t ask…), and this shower gel was one of a few summery shower products that I moved to the bathroom. 🙂

Now… is this shower gel any good? Yes, it is. The lemon fragrance is tangy and refreshing. It smells just as awesome as Original Source’s lemon shower gel. I also love the sherbet-like texture which adds to the cool feel of the shower gel.

I know NSPA‘s Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Shower & Bath Gel will serve me well this summer. If you’d like to try this shower gel, it’s available as 500ml for £3. I bought it when Asda ran a 3 for £4 promotion.

Have you tried this product? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème and Hand & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion. I wouldn’t have chosen these products for myself, but I received them as a gift with purchase. And here’s what I think. 🙂
patisserie-de-bain-cranberries-cream-4
Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream is quite alright. It lathers up well, and whilst it’s a bit drying, I think the fragrance is surprisingly well done. It’s too sweet for my taste, but I’d describe it as a mix of cranberries, custard and pink champagne. Again, not really my kind of fragrance, but if you like sweet fragrances in shower gels, I’d recommend this shower gel.

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Hand & Body Lotion isn’t great because they didn’t get the fragrance right. I’d describe it as a sickly sweet mess. This one will be used as a foot cream!

If you’re interested, you can purchase Patisserie De Bain products through Rose & Co. England. Superdrug stocks a few of their products as well. Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion are available as 200ml each.

100% Awesome – Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream, Bath Cream & Hand Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana products. At the moment Imperial Leather offers a shower cream, a bath cream, and a hand wash! And I think these products are 100% awesome!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Shower Cream (250ml) is one of my favourite shower products. It’s happiness in a bottle. The fragrance is 100% foamy banana, but it’s not overly sweet. This is the perfect shower gel to start the day with. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Bath Cream (500ml) is just as awsome as the shower cream. I love the non-drying formula and the insanely gorgeous fragrance. This is the perfect bath treat before bed time. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Hand Wash (300ml) is one of the 2 best hand washes ever (the other one’s Carex’s Bubble Gum hand wash). It’s a real treat for hands! 11 stars!

I would recommend Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products to everyone! I’ve gone through multiple hand washes over the past year (or so), but I’ve only recently tried the shower gel and the bath cream (which I picked up for £1 each), and I feel like an idiot for not trying them sooner. So… if you’re not already in love with these products, you need to try them asap!

100% Cruelty-Free – Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash. I’ve already reviewed Dr. Organic’s Aloe Vera hair products, and if you’d like to read that review, click here. Now, without further ado, onto the body washes!

Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash is average. The faint aloe vera and lemon fragrance isn’t unpleasant, but very forgettable. I’ve noticed that this shower gel isn’t very cleansing. It’s definitely not for your post-workout shower…

Dr. Organic‘s Manuka Honey Body Wash is disappointing. Whilst it smells wonderful from the bottle, the fragrance changes as soon as the shower gel hits the skin. I’d describe the fragrance as… warm plastic! And just like the aloe vera shower gel, this one isn’t very cleansing. If you’re sweaty, use something else!

All in all, I wouldn’t recommend these shower gels. I wanted to love them, but they’re not great. If you’d like to try them, Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash are available as 75ml and 250ml. I paid £1 each for the small travel size bottles (special offer).

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream and Thai Fusion Bath Moments

Hi there! If you read my blog, you may know that I’ve got drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries. and that I’m working my way through my stash. Two of the (g)oldies I’ve just rediscovered are Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream with green tea, rice milk and jasmine, and Imperial Leather Thai Fusion Bath Moments with pomegrante, hibiscus and milk.

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa
(bath cream & shower gel) was originally a limited edition, but it became part of Imperial Leather’s standard collection. It’s been repackaged a few times already. And it’s no surprise Imperial Leather held onto the formula because the fragrance is clean, green, sweet and sensual. It’s very nice!

Thai Fusion has also been a limited edition. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s a shame because the exotic floral-fruity fragrance is warm, sweet, sunny and simply beautiful. I’ll miss it when it’s gone!

Imperial Leather bath products are available as 500ml. Prices vary depending on where you shop, but there’s always a store that runs a half price promotion (which happens to be the reason why I have drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries). 🙂

Radox Feel Rejuvenated & Radox Feel Exotic

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Radox shower gels that I’ve been using for the past week – Radox Feel Rejuvenated (found this at my local Poundstretcher) and Radox Feel Exotic (this one’s from Superdrug).

Radox Feel Rejuvenated with orange oil and vitamin E is pretty awesome! It’s the nicest orange fragrance I’ve ever smelled in a product. It’s oranges, cream and a hint of cheesecake. It’s delicious! The shower cream formula is 100% non-drying. Awesome stuff!

Radox Feel Exotic with lychee and watermelon isn’t that great. I think it smells quite masculine! I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of fizzy guava and coconut. Disappointing…

Radox shower gels are available as 250ml for about £2. I paid 99p for the Feel Rejuvenated shower cream, and 79p for the Feel Exotic shower gel.

Palmolive So Tempting & Palmolive Be Sensual

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive limited edition shower gels that I picked up at Superdrug – Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris.

Palmolive So Tempting with poppy is extremely nice! If you love Flower by Kenzo, this is the shower gel you need to pick up. And if you don’t like Flower by Kenzo because you think it’s too sweet and too dense, this is still the shower gel you need to pick up! This poppy flower scented shower gel smells wonderfully floral, and it has an airy feel to it which makes it perfectly suitable for even the hottest summer days. Awesome stuff!

Palmolive So Sensual with iris is pretty awesome too. The iris fragrance is sweet, warm and natural. If you love Prada’s Infusion d’Iris, this is the shower gel to go with it!

To sum it up, these 2 Palmolive shower gels are sensational. I could kick myself for not trying them sooner! Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris are available as 250ml for about £2 each. I bought these shower gels for £1 each (Superdrug, half price offer).
