Garnier Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo & Conditioner With Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo and Conditoner with Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom. These 2 products are aimed at people with dull and tired hair, and they promise to restore gloss and shine. I’ve been using these products on and off since the beginning of April, and here’s what I think.

The shampoo cleanses my hair and my scalp well, and the cherry blossom fragrance is really lovely. It’s my favourite Garnier hair care fragrance so far. 🙂

The conditioner is very good. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky. I can’t comment on whether it makes my hair extra shiny, but I’m really happy with the conditioner!

I would recommend these 2 hair care products to everyone who’s looking for a shampoo and conditioner combo that makes hair feel soft and silky. If you have long, curly / wavy or dry hair, you really should give these products a try. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo and Conditoner with Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom are available as 400ml each for £2 each (Poundworld).

Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel which is aimed at people with oily skin that’s prone to imperfections.

This product contains salicylic acid and zinc, and it promises to get rid of impurities and to tighten pores.

You’re supposed to use this face wash like any other face wash. Apply it to wet skin, and massage it all over your face. Rinse. Done.

So what’s it like? Using this face wash for the first time was a scary experience! I applied some product to a wet konjac sponge, and then I rubbed it all over my face. About 15 seconds later my face felt cold and tingly. 😨

In the past I’ve received treatment for angioedema and similar (seemingly random) allergic reactions on a number of occasions. So I’m always very cautious with new products, especially with products that have a cooling or warming effect, and anything that tingles.

But back to the product! Whilst the first use was a scary experience, everything turned out fine. I rinsed the face wash off of my face, and things went back to normal. I also didn’t experience any redness, dryness or any other unpleasant reaction. I did, however, notice that this face wash really helps to keep my skin perfectly clean and clear!

So all in all, I have no reason to complain. Well, there’s one thing – this face wash is clear. Transparent. I was hoping it would be blue (or at least blue-ish). It’s OK now. I got over it. 😜

Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel is available as 200ml for £4.99. I spent £5 in total for this product and the matching scrub (2 for £5 offer).

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Cocoa Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion with Cocoa Butter.

This body lotion is aimed at people with dry to rough skin, and it promises to reinforce the skin barrier, and to maintain long-lasting hydration.

The product also claims to improve skin texture and to brighten skin.

I’ve been using this body lotion on and off for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think. 🙂

The first thing I need to mention is the product’s fragrance – it smells like a mix of shea butter and cocoa butter. It smells heavenly!

And I agree with Garnier’s claim that the lotion is fast-absorbing. Awesome stuff!

But the most important thing is… the hydration! I don’t know if this body lotion has brightened my skin tone, but it made my skin feel super smooth and soft. I love it!

To sum it up, this body lotion is pretty awesome! I would definitely recommend it. Garnier’s Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Shea Butter is available as 250ml and 400ml. The smaller bottle can be yours for as little as £1.49 if you keep your eyes peeled for special offers. 😉

Haul – L’Oréal, Treacle Moon, Caolion, Imperial Leather, Garnier, Body-X & Superdrug!

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since the end of February, so let me show you what I bought since then! 🙂

L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner – I panicked when I saw a number of L’Oréal products marked as Reduced To Clear.

Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel – this was on special for £2.

L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect Caring Shampoo & Conditioner – guess what, these were Reduced To Clear too. What is going on?!

Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath & Shower Gel – I’ve had this before and I liked it a lot. My husband loved it, so this is actually more for him… this was on special for £2.

Superdrug’s Deep Action Deep Cleansing Charcoal Peel-Off face masks were on special – 2 for £1.48.

And there’s a new Superdrug collection = Calm Skin. I bought the Refreshing Facial Spritz and the Relaxing Overnight Mask. These were on a buy 1 get 2nd half price offer. So these 2 items were £4.47 in total.

I spotted these pretty looking Body-X shower gels at my local B&M Bargains store. Had a sniff. Liked them. Bought them. £1 each.

I also got myself a few more charcoal toothpastes. I bought 2 Superdrug charcoal toothpastes (£2.99 each, but buy 1 get 1 free) a few weeks ago. I really liked this toothpaste, so I bought 4 more (still BOGOF). I also picked up a cheap charcoal toothpaste (£1) at B&M Bargains.

I picked up Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver shampoo and conditioner (£2 each, Poundworld) and an Imperial Leather Foamy Banana bath cream (95p, Tesco).

I managed to get my hands on 2 large 100g Caolion O2 Spakling Purifying Face Soaps. These were on sale at Cult Beauty. £10.50 each instead of £15 each. I’ve already had the small 25g soap – this one lasted me for almost for months. So I know these two large soaps will last me for 2 years!

This is what I bought since the end of February. Some of these items are quite bulky which means that I have storage problems again… What was I thinking?

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub.

This product contains salicylic acid, vitamin C, grapefruit and pomegranate extracts, and it’s aimed at people with oily / problem skin. It promises to unclog and tighten pores and to give skin a radiant glow.

You’re supposed to use the product as a daily face wash. Since I use a konjac or cellulose sponge (+ face wash) to cleanse my face in the shower every morning, I used this product the same way – and I was impressed!

This gel scrub is wonderful. It lathers up very well (it’s like it was designed to be used with a konjac sponge), it feels powerful but not harsh, and it really seems to “sweep up” grease and grime to give my pores a deep cleanse.

I also think that this gel scrub has skin brightening properties. Every time I use this gel scrub, my skin tone looks incredibly even and, yes, radiant. It’s awesome!

Since I have dry and moody skin, I can’t use this gel scrub every day. At the moment I’m using it once or twice a week which seems to work out perfectly.

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub is available as 150ml for £4.99. I paid £3.33 (special offer).

Haul! New Products From The Body Shop, Dr. Organics, Sukin, Garnier, Superdrug, Yes To, Skin Republic, Asda & Models Own

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since early January, so let me show you what I bought since then. 🙂

I bought 3 The Body Shop shower gels – Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries. They were £2.50 each.

The Body Shop’s Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion was £2, the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette was £5, and the Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion was £2. I’ve already reviewed the body lotions – click here.

About 10 days later I placed another TBS order. This time I bought an Italian Summer Fig shower gel (£3), an Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette (£6), another Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette (£5), and a Polynesian Island Tiaré shower gel (£2).

I also picked up 3 Models Own flakie polishes – the names are Golden Shore, Red Sea and Aqua Splash. The polishes were £1.49 each (Superdrug, bargain bin).

I bought 2 Dr. Organic Body WashesAloe Vera & Manuka Honey. These were on sale (£1 each) at Holland & Barrett.

I also picked up a Dr.Organic shampoo & conditioner combo – Aloe Vera again! And I bought Sukin’s Purifying Shampoo. These 3 products were £1 each.

I bought Garnier’s Honey Flower Cleansing Milk + Toner. These products were on special (Save 1/3 at Superdrug’s), and they were £2.29 each. Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub was £1. It looks like the entire line is going to be discontinued. 😦

I fell in love with Caolion’s charcoal face soap, and I really want to try more products with charcoal. So I bought this massive 195g Yes To Tomatoes Soap. It was £4.99 (Holland and Barrett). I picked up 3 Superdrug face masks (Manuka honey, charcoal, Dead Sea clay).  These were 99p each, but there was also a 3 for 2 deal, so I paid £1.98 for these 3 masks.

I also got 2 Skin Republic Spoil Yourself With Bubbles sheet masks. They’re £4.99 each, but they were a free gift with purchase (free when you buy 3 skin care products). I received 2 sheet masks because I bought 6 skin care items. 🙂

Oh, I also bought 2 new duvet cover sets. These were £14 each (king size) and I picked them up at my local Asda store (the photos are from Asda’s web site). Yes, this isn’t beauty related, but I’m so happy with the good quality of these sets that I wanted to say… if you’re looking for new duvet cover sets, you need to swing by your local Asda – they have dozens of amazing prints!

Back to the beauty stuff! Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion with Shea Butter

Garnier Shea Butter LotionHi there! Today’s post is about Garnier’s Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion With Shea Butter.

This body lotion is aimed at people with very dry skin, and it promises hydration that can be felt for up to 7 days after you’ve stopped using the body lotion.

Sounds cool. So how’s the product?

Well, I think this body lotion is great. It’s very rich, so it can feel sticky on my skin. However, the sticky feeling doesn’t last very long, so I have no reason to complain.

I also think that this body lotion is very hydrating. It’s plain awesome for dry skin. It even works on elbows. Fantastic stuff!

And there’s one more thing… this body lotion smells wonderful. The shea butter fragrance is sweet and cuddly. I love it!

I would definitely recommend Garnier’s Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion With Shea Butter. It’s available as 250ml and 400ml. The smaller bottle can be yours for £1.49 if you keep your eyes peeled for special offers. 🙂
