Reducing My Oldies Stash – Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel & Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I picked up for £1 each. And here they are!

Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel has a true orange flower fragrance. I’m enjoying it very much. This shower gel seems to have low SLS. It doesn’t lather up very well. If you like low SLS shower gels, you should consider giving this one a try. I found this large 400ml shower gel at Home Bargains (clearance).

Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel is good but not great. The shower gel is gentle enough, and it smells citrusy, but I doubt this is anyone’s favourite fragrance. This shower gel is available as 300ml (Tesco).

I will continue to use both shower gels. I’d pick up the Kirstie Allsopp shower gel again, but I’m not repurchasing this Calcot Manor shower gel.

Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub. I found this body scrub in my stash, and I thought it looked promising, so I decided that I should (finally) give it a try. And that’s what I did!

I think Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub is simply amazing. I’m enjoying the classic Sanctuary Spa fragrance, and I love the runny-yet-gooey texture of the scrub. What else? The scrub is easy to use, and it exfoliates my skin without being harsh. Another big plus is that the scrub doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. This is an outstanding product!

Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub is available as 500ml. I’ve also seen a moisturiser from this collection, and I’m keen to give that product a try too!

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa, Japanese Spa

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I’m using at the moment – Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa and Imperial Leather Japanese Spa. I found these at one of the bargain stores, and I’m glad I did!

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa with vanilla bean and cherry blossom is 100% fantastic. The vanilla and cherry fragrance smells like a mix of Cherry Garcia ice cream and Kenzo Amour perfume. It’s just wow!

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa is an old favourite of mine. I adore the sweet green fragrance. It’s lovely!

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa and Imperial Leather Japanese Spa are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each. The shower gels are limited editions, but these 2 fragrances have been renamed and repackaged a few times already, so it’s likely that Imperial Leather will recycle the fragrances and formulas at some point.

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel & Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower products which I started to use just last week – Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream.

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel smells of candied cherries. It’s not the most sophisticated fragrance, but I’m enjoying it. I also like the formula. Whilst this is a shower gel, it doesn’t feel drying at all. Nicely done, Radox!

Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream is very nice! It’s gentle on dry skin and the berry fragrance is fresh and fruity (without that overly ripe aroma that most berry-scented products have). I like this one very much, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Yves Rocher Baies Des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 winter-themed limited edition products – Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion. I’m enjoying these products very much, and here’s why.

Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel is lovely! It lathers up very well, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The mixed berry fragrance is perfect – it’s crisp and cool. Very nice!

Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Perfumed Body Lotion is great! It feels more like a fluid than a lotion, it’s 100% non-sticky, but it’s surprisingly rich and nourishing. This body lotion makes my skin feel super soft, and I love it!

Based on my experience, I would recommend these products. Yves Rocher Baies des Merveilles / Marvellous Berries Bath & Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion are available as 200ml each. I paid £3.30 in total for both products.

Rightguard Shower + Oils Pink Jasmine Shower Gel & Rightguard Shower + Elixir Black Orchid Shower Cream

Hi there! Happy Friday! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I’m using at the moment – Rightguard Shower + Oils Pink Jasmine Shower Gel and Rightguard Shower + Elixir Black Orchid Shower Cream.

Rightguard Shower + Oils Pink Jasmine Shower Gel is quite nice. The fresh floral fragrance isn’t very exciting, but it’s pleasant enough. I love how the shower gel feels on my skin when it’s lathered up. Whilst I wouldn’t say that this shower gel is nourishing, I’ve noticed that the micro oils DO make a difference.
Rightguard Shower
Rightguard Shower + Elixir Black Orchid Shower Cream is very enjoyable. The warm, floral fragrance is lovely (my husband likes it too), and the creamy formula is gentle on dry skin. I’d recommend this one!

Rightguard Shower + Oils Pink Jasmine Shower Gel and Rightguard Shower + Elixir Black Orchid Shower Cream are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash, Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up at Poundland – Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash with cucumber and aloe vera and Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash with cotton extract and oat milk.

Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash with cucumber and aloe vera is not a favourite. Whilst I’m happy to report that this shower gel is gentle on sensitive skin, I don’t care for the insanely boring cucumber and aloe vera fragrance. I’ll squeeze this shower gel into the hand wash dispenser in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash with cotton extract and oat milk will end up in the hand wash dispenser as well. It’s not a terrible product, but the fragrance is too boring for words…

I won’t repurchase these shower gels, but if you’re interested… Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash and Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash are available as 500ml. I paid £1 each.
