Patisserie De Bain Sugared Violet Hand & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Patisserie De Bain Sugared Violet Hand & Body Lotion.

I’ve been using this body lotion on and off since I bought it about 6 weeks ago. And here’s what I think…

This body lotion smells of sugared violets. However, the fragrance is rather synthetic. It’s not bad, but it’s simply not credible as a semi-genuine foody scent.

Whilst I think that this body lotion is easy to spread and that it sinks into the skin quickly, I don’t think that it’s particulary moisturising.

I would say that it’s good enough for “maintenance” and for when you’re in a hurry (early morning starts), but if you have dry skin, this body lotion is just not good enough.

I will finish this body lotion, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.

Patisserie De Bain Sugared Violet Hand & Body Lotion is available as 200ml for £4.99. I paid £1 (Poundland).

Derma V10 Cocoa Body Butter

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Derma V10‘s Cocoa Body Butter. I’ve previously tried one of Derma V10’s body butters, and I’ve been happy with it. So I thought I should try more products from this brand. And as a big fan of all things chocolatey, buying their cocoa body butter was an easy choice. 🙂

How’s the product? I’m very happy with it! This body butter hydrates my skin well without making it feel sticky. And the fragrance is extremely nice. It reminds me of cocoa powder for hot chocolate (similar to Nesquik’s). It’s yummy!

Derma V10‘s Cocoa Body Butter is available as 220ml for £1 at the usual bargain stores. I’m sure that I’ll finish this body butter in no time! And I have no doubt that I’ll buy it again!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter. I can’t believe I never reviewed this! Boots seem to be redoing their Extracts collection, and I hope this one’s going to be part of whatever new collection they come up with. Here’s why…

This body butter is the most wonderful cocoa butter I’ve ever tried. The fragrance is hot cocoa and chocolate, and the formula is a dream. This body butter is insanely nourishing. It makes my skin feel super soft without making it feel sticky. This body butter is simply amazing!

Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter is available as 200ml. I purchased this body butter as part of a half price gift set.

Boots Garden Collection – Rose Body Wash & Body Lotion, Lavender Body Wash & Body Lotion, Magnolia Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about BootsGarden Collection toiletries. Once a year, these products are available as a set of 5 travel-sized products (3x 100ml shower gel, 2x 75ml body lotion). The designs are different every year, but the products are always the same. Onto the reviews!

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Wash is very nice. It lathers up well, it cleanses my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The fresh rose fragrance is very well done.

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion is a light body moisturiser. It’s not sticky at all, and it’s absorbed in no time, so it would be perfect for the warmer seasons and for workday mornings (or whenever you’re in a hurry). The fragrance is fresh and rosey.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash is just as great as the rose body wash. The aromatic lavender fragrance is very authentic.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion is just as wonderful as the rose body lotion. It provides light hydration, and the lavender scent is simply lovely.

Boots Garden Collection Magnolia Body Wash has blown me away. The formula of the shower gel is great, and the fragrance is… floral, sunny, transparent… with a touch of honey. Gorgeous!

Boots did a great job with these Garden Collection toiletries. I paid £2.50 per set which is a total steal!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 products which I’ll miss dearly when they’re gone – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter.

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream is one of the best shower products I’ve used all year. It cleanses my skin, but it also makes my skin feel super soft. I love it! The oriental fragrance is simply gorgeous – it’s dark, feminine and positively addictive. This product deserves 11 stars!

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter with sweet almond oil, shea butter and argan oil is a perfect 11 too! This body butter is one of the richest body butters that I’ve ever tried. However, this body butter is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. The fragrance is 100% gorgeous and longlasting. This body butter is simply perfect!

Unfortunately, Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter have been discontinued and replaced with lesser products. 😦

100% Vegan – Original Source Skin Quench Pineapple & Moringa Oil Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Original Source‘s Skin Quench Pineapple & Moringa Oil Body Lotion.

This body lotion contains natural oils, and the fragrance is 100% natural.

What’s the product like? Well, I don’t like it at all. And here’s why:

I have to say that the body lotion hydrates my skin nicely. However, the fragrance is terrible. The body lotion smells like a mix of overly ripe pineapple and furniture polish. Fortunately the fragrance doesn’t linger!

I remember the shower gels from the Skin Quench line – they didn’t smell great either! It’s not surprisig the Skin Quench line didn’t survive.

I won’t continue to use this body lotion on my body, but I’m sure it’ll be perfectly OK as a foot lotion.

Original Source‘s Skin Quench Pineapple & Moringa Oil Body Lotion is approved by the Vegan Society, and it is available as 200ml for £1.79 (Savers).

Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter

Hi there! I’ve got another skin care review for you today. A few weeks ago I picked up this Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter for £1 at Poundland. I’ve never had an aloe vera body butter, so it took me about 3 seconds to decide I had to give this one a try. And now that I’ve been using this product for a few weeks, here’s what I think. 🙂

I’m happy I bought this body butter. It’s not the most innovative product, but it hydrates my skin nicely and it doesn’t feel sticky. The biggest selling point is the aloe vera fragrance. It’s wonderfully fresh and natural. I’m enjoying it very much!

Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter is available as 220ml for £1 (give or take a few pence) at bargain stores. If you’re looking for a new body butter, you need to try this!
