Poundland & Poundworld Beauty Haul

Hi there! I’ve paid my local Poundland and Poundworld stores a visit the other day. And I found quite a few things I just had to have. Here’s what I bought:

Montagne Jeunesse face masks – I tried a few Montagne Jeunesse masks just recently and I loved them so much that I bought more. I got six mask duos in total – three Mud Pac / Amore Rose duos and three Passion Peel Off / Lemon Zest Peel Off duos. That’s twelve individual masks for £6 in total.

Vaseline Essential Healing Lotion – I’ve never had this one before, so I bought it. The 200ml bottle was £1 only which is really cheap considering the same size is £2.75 at Superdrug’s.
Haul 1
I almost couldn’t believe it when I found two of my favourite facial cleansers, Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub and Olay Essentials Refreshing Face Wash, for £1 each. Normally these products are around £3 each. I bought two face scrubs and two face washes, so I spent £4 in total for these four products which will last me for at least six month (probably longer) – not bad!

Dove Essential Nourishing Hand Cream – I didn’t really need another hand cream, but £1 for a Dove hand cream is a really good deal.
Haul 2
I’m really pleased with what I bought. And I only spent £12 in total for all those goodies. In case you’re wondering, the face masks were from Poundland, everything else was from Poundworld.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream With Hibiscus, Pistachio Cream with Magnolia and Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla

Hi there! Now that it’s cold and my skin is really dry, I thought I’d treat myself to a few new shower creams. Meet Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream with Hibiscus, Pistachio Cream with Magnolia and Shea Butter with Warm Vanilla.

Let me start with the Almond and Hibiscus shower cream which also happens to be my favourite of the three. This shower cream smells absolutely delicious – like hot chocolate with a touch of almond milk. I’ll definitely buy it again – soon!
Dove Purely Pampering Shower
I don’t care much for the Pistachio and Magnolia shower cream. The fragrance isn’t bad. It just doesn’t tickle my fancy. Well, and it started to annoy me a bit half-way through the bottle. I won’t repurchase this one.

The Shea Butter and Vanilla shower cream smells wonderful. The fragrance is sweet, warm, comforting and cuddly. It’s almost as lovely as the almond and hibiscus fragrance. I will definitely buy this one again!

I think these shower cream really work for dry skin. They can’t replace a moisturiser, but they do leave my skin feeling soft for hours. Dove Shower Creams are available as 250 ml for about £2.50 each and 500 ml for around £4 to £4.40. The big 500 ml bottles are currently half price at Tesco’s! 🙂

Instant Relief from Dry Hands – Dove Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream

Dove HandcreamHi there! I was desperate for hand cream the other day (I know, how can anyone run out of hand cream?!) so I was really happy to find this Dove Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream for 42p (!) on my local drugstore’s bargain shelf.

Let me tell you right away that this hand cream is absolutely amazing. The scent is warm, feminine, floral and a tad soapy – I love it!

I also love that this cream moisturises my hands (and my elbows) nicely – it feels a bit greasy for a minute or two, but after that it’s fine.

Call me crazy, but I think that this hand cream actually makes my hands look younger! I didn’t take before and after photos, so I can’t really compare, but I go with my gut feeling here. 🙂

I’m not sure if Dove’s Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream is about to be discontinued (I would be a bit sad), but if it makes an appearance at any of the Poundstores, I’ll stock up.
