Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean. This shower gel promises instantly refreshed skin. This sounds good!

I’ve been using this shower gel on and off for the past 2 weeks, and I like it. It’s cleansing, but it also feels gentle – this is nice!

I do like the fragrance – it’s a mix of marine notes and grapefruit. Definitely refreshing and also unisex. My husband has given this shower gel a try, and he likes it too. He actually thought it’s “for men”.

If you’re looking for a refreshing unisex shower gel, I’d recommend this one. Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean is available as 250ml for about 拢2. I paid 拢1 (Poundland).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap. I don’t think I’ve ever tried any product from this brand, but this soap was on special, and I also saw that this soap is certified vegan (by The Vegan Society) and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). So I bought it!

I tried this soap today, and whilst I like it, I don’t love it. The soap is a light green, curved bar soap. It has a classic soap scent with aloe vera mixed in. It lathers up well, and I found it to be cleansing. I would recommend it after a sweaty work-out! However, the soap is drying, and using a body lotion is a must after the shower.

All in all, this is a decent soap. It’s not a favourite, but worth a try if you love bar soaps for the shower. It’s also a good buy if you want to support a vegan and cruelty-free brand! Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap is available as 100g for about 拢2.75. I paid 拢1.50 (special offer).

Lanc么me Hypn么se Eau De Parfum, Hypnotising Shower Gel, Hypnotising Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Lanc么me Hypn么se Eau De Parfum, Hypnotising Shower Gel and Hypnotising Body Lotion. These 3 items formed a gift set which I picked up during some post-Christmas sale spree a little while ago. I’ve now heard that the fragrance Hypn么se is being discontinued, so I thought I’d give these products a try before they disappear from the shelves for good.

Alrighty, let’s start with Lanc么me Hypn么se Hypnotising Shower Gel which has a colour-shifting (beige to blue) effect. It’s so pretty! I also love how well the shower gel lathers up – a little goes a long way. And the fragrance is so beautiful!

Onto Lanc么me Hypn么se Hypnotising Body Lotion. This is a very nice body lotion! It’s rather runny, but despite the light formula, it hydrates my skin very well. And the fragrance is heavenly! Also, thanks to the light but wonderfully hydrating formula, I don’t need to use a lot of product, so I should be getting a few uses out of this 50ml tube.

Now let’s get to the star of the show – Lanc么me Hypn么se聽Eau De Parfum which contains the following notes – passion flower (top note), gardenia and jasmine (heart notes), and vanilla and vetiver (base notes). I think the name Hypn么se is perfect for this fragrance. It’s charming, alluring and captivating – and yes, hypnotic! The blurple colour is also a great match for the fragrance. The colour of my EdP turned brownish after a few years in my stash – but that’s normal with vanilla fragrances, and the fragrance itself still smells absolutely perfect.

I love the strong vanilla note – it’s warm and sensual. As the fragrance develops, there’s also a warm and cuddly woody note. Nice! I cannot smell any gardenia or jasmine, but Hypn么se has the most beautiful passion flower note. Passion flower in fragrances can be a difficult note. It’s often too crisp, too dusty, too tangy (too sour even) – and just way too “in your face”. But not in this fragrance! Hypn么se gets passion flower right.

I’m enjoying this fragrance very much – my husband also said that it’s very beautiful. Based on my experience, I’d recommend it. Hypn么se is a quality fragrance which would suit people in most age groups. It’s definitely a feminine fragrance, but a man can also get away with wearing it. And I know because I tested it on my husband (who is the best husband / guinea pig ever). 馃槆馃榿

Reducing My Oldies Stash – I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Cr猫me

Hi there! Today’s post is about this I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Cr猫me.

I’ve previously reviewed 2 products from the Mango & Papaya range, and I liked them a lot. So when I dug up this shower gel, I was happy to give it a try.

If you sniff the shower gel from the bottle, you think it has a generic fruity scent. It’s not bad, but definitely not remarkable.

However, once you start lathering up the shower gel on your skin, it smells delicious! Think of a mix of sunlight and juicy fruit bubblegum – but without the sugar. This shower gel smells like summer in a bottle!

This product is also supposed to work as a “bubble bath”. So I’ve tried that too. And I’m very happy to confirm that it creates amazing bubbles and that the fragrance also works for a bath. Great stuff!

If you’re interested, I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Cr猫me is available as 250ml and 500ml. I picked up the 500ml bottle at some discount store, although I don’t remember how much I paid.

Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Energising Shower Gel With Grapefruit

Hi there! Today’s short post is about this Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Energising Shower Gel With Grapefruit. I love all things grapefruit, so I didn’t hesitate when I found this shower gel.

How is it? This shower gel is really good. I like the formula; it feels cleansing, but it’s also gentle. The grapefruit fragrance is sunny and juicy. Personally, I would have preferred a slightly more tangy fragrance, but that’s just my preference.

All in all, this is a decent shower gel. Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Energising Shower Gel With Grapefruit is available as 200ml. I don’t remember what I paid but this was a sale item!

Revisiting Old Favourites – Rightguard Shower + Oils With Argan, Marula & Almond Oil AND Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I have just rediscovered –聽Rightguard Shower + Oils With Argan, Marula & Almond Oil and Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid.

Let’s start with Rightguard Shower + Oils With Argan, Marula & Almond Oil which is lovely! I like the warm and exotic fragrance, and I’m impressed with how gentle (and almost nourishing) this shower gel is. I’m enjoying it very much, and I have no doubt that I’ll finish it very soon.

Onto Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid which I adore! This shower gel has a golden colour which is a perfect match for the creamy and luxurious formula and the warm and velvety floral fragrance. This shower gel is luxury in a bottle!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these amazing shower gels. Rightguard Shower + Oils With Argan, Marula & Almond Oil and Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid are available as 250ml each. I paid 拢1 each.

Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry with promise to help you de-stress and unwind. The salts are a sea salt blend, scented with the sweet and fruity fragrance of acai berries. Simply use 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts for a full bath.

I’ve given these bath salts a try, and I love them! The fragrance is amazing – sweet, pink, fruity and tropical. It’s very enjoyable! I had a post-workout bath with these bath salts, and it was amazing. My husband also gave these bath salts a try, and he loved them just as much. These bath salts will become a regular purchase!

If you’re interested, Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry are available as a 900g pouch. I paid 拢2.25 (special offer at Sainsbury’s).

Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Shower Cream, Boots Live + Be Captivating Pause Bath Soak

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 products I started to use earlier this month – Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Shower Cream and Boots Live + Be Captivating Pause Bath Soak. These are part of Boots’ vegan Live + Be collection.

Let’s start with Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Shower Cream which is a dream come true! The shower cream feels amazing on the skin! Wow! And the fragrance is just dreamy. It’s woody, warm, green, slightly sweet, but still transparent. Wow! I’m so glad I bought this product. It’s one of my favourite products so far this year!

Onto Boots Live + Be Captivating Pause Bath Soak! This product is rich and creamy, and I was impressed to find that it’s not drying at all. Lots of so-called creamy bath products feel nourishing, but 10 minutes after the bath the skin is dry. This bath product is NOT one of those products. It makes my skin feel really good. However, the scent isn’t my favourite. I had a body mist with the same fragrance before, and it got old quickly. I do think this one would make a nice hand wash though.

Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Shower Cream and Boots Live + Be Captivating Pause Bath Soak are available as 400ml each for 拢1.25 each. A total steal!

Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash, Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels that I started to use last week – Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash which is pretty much what you’d expect it to be. The shower gel is cleansing but feels gentle, and the raspberry and lime blossom adds a nice floral-fruity touch. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it.

Onto Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath which isn’t as nice as expected. The original bubble gum fragrance that Carex used to have in their hand soap was much better compared to whatever it is that they used in this shower gel. Also, this shower gel isn’t very cleansing, so it’s only for when you haven’t broken a sweat. I’m not impressed.

If you’re interested, Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath are available as 400ml each. I paid 拢1 each.

Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb. I saw 2 different bath bombs at B&M Bargains for 拢1 each, and I thought I’d give both of them a try. I already reviewed the other one (blueberry), and I’ve now given this raspberry bath bomb a try.

I liked the blueberry bath bomb, so I had certain expectations for the raspberry one too. I used this bath bomb today, and I like it. The raspberry scent is fresh and fruity (but it could be stronger). I also liked that the bath bomb left my skin feeling nicely hydrated.

If you’re interested, Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb is available as a 100g single-use bath bomb. How much you pay will depend on where you shop!
