Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I’m using at the moment – Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel which is simply amazing! I love everything about this shower gel – the formula, the lather, how gentle it is… and, of course, the fragrance! I can’t describe the fragrance in many words, but I can describe it in 1 word = paradise!

Onto Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream which is really nice too. The scent of this shower gel is best described as a mix of sugarfree marshmallows and, indeed, cotton. I prefer the wonderful Tropical Rainforest scent, but Cotton Clouds is very good too!

Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each. I’ve also seen bigger bottles, but I’m not sure of the exact size (I assume those are 400ml or 500ml).

Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap. This shower soap is supposed to smell of sweet vanilla buttercream and a drizzly strawberry icing. The soap claims to be gentle on skin. Since the soap is housed in cardboard, the packaging is 100% recyclable. This is great!

I’ve given this soap a try, and I found it disappointing. Whilst I agree that the soap is gentle and that it left my skin feeling great, I didn’t care for the fragrance at all. I’d describe the fragrance as stale, a bit like old bread. This wasn’t great. So I threw out the soap after the first unpleasant use.

I won’t recommend this product, but if you’re interested, Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap is available as a 100g bar soap for 70p (Sainsbury’s).

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I found at my local Superdrug store – Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel. I’ve previously had 2 shower gels from Imperial Leather’s Icon range, and I wanted to give these shower gels a try too.

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel is lovely! It smells of passion fruit and mango, and I love the yellow, sunny and happy fragrance. My husband likes it too! The formula is gentle on the skin, and I think this is one of the nicest shower gels I’ve used over the past 6 (or so) months.

Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel doesn’t smell of bamboo. The fragrance reminds me of some sort of sweet or candy from my childhood mixed with pineapple. I can’t describe the scent, but it smells warm and simply lovely (and it doesn’t smell overly sweet or sugary). Oh, and the pole-dancing pandas on the bottle are super fun too!

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid 99p each (half price offer at Superdrug).

HAUL! New Products From No 7, M&S, Boots, Superdrug, Herbal Essences, Radox, Imperial Leather, Garnier & More

Hi there! Today’s post is about the majority of the products I bought before Christmas (or so). I’m saying majority because I didn’t take photos of everything I bought, and there’s some stuff I know I’ll only remember after posting. Without further ado, here’s the stuff:

Boots No7 Skincare Stars The Star Of The Show – this incredible set has products worth £149, but it was £39 for a few days in the run-up to Christmas.

Marks & Spencer Discover Spiced Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Soft Iris – these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free. The set was £6.65 (30% off offer), but even the full price of £9.50 is a total steal for 3 x 30ml. I already reviewed this set.

M&S Discover Water Jasmine, Fresh Lychee, White Coconut – I’ll review this set soon. Same price and amount as above, and all these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free as well!

Radox Perky Peach, Radox Mint To Be – I’m looking forward to trying these shower gels, although I made a mistake with the minty one. I ignored the name and the mint leaves, and I somehow assumed it would be a lime scent… 🤦‍♀️ These 400ml shower gels were about £1.30 each.

Imperial Leather Wild Thing, Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay – these 2 cute 250ml shower gels were 99p each. I’ve been using them for almost 2 weeks now, and the review will be up tomorrow!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo & Blue Ginger Conditioner – these are in use too, and the review will be up on Friday! Oh, and these were £3 each!

I also bought plenty of face masks – but they were too many to list. I’ve already tried and reviewed some of them!

Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Shower Cream, Boots Live+Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – I bought these and lots of other Live+Be products as it looks like the entire range is going to be discontinued. Really sad (and typical because I just discovered these last month). I already reviewed the 2 products above.

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – I bought this when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. They’re usually £4.99. I already reviewed this body cream.

Superdrug Vitamin Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen (also £4.99) was the other product I got with the Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price deal.

I bought 2 Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturising Shower Creams. I’ve never seen these before but it was time Superdrug finally made a shower gel with their iconic Vitamin E fragrance. These were £1.20 each (Better Than Half Price offer). Garnier Body’s Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion With Shea Butter was a repurchase. This is a big 400ml, and it was £2.49 (B&M Bargains).

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Hibiscus Extract was on a Save 1/3 offer. It’s usually £4.49 for a 465ml, but I paid £2.99.

And lastly, Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner, Boots Ingredients Niacinamide Serum and Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel. The first 2 products were £5, the cleanser was £4 but was actually free (3 for 2 offer).

The No 7 set was a bit more expensive (it wasn’t if you consider the actual value of the products in it), everything else was rather cheap! Have you tried any of these items? Would you like to try any of them? What have you bought recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 😘

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You Shimmering Ice Crystals & Arctic Pearls Icons Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth Tropical Rainforest & Water Mint Icons Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 super cute shower gels that I picked up at my local Poundland store – Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth. Seriously – how cute are these? 😍

Alrighty, let’s get to the reviews! Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You has a “shimmering ice crystals & arctic pearls” fragrance. It’s difficult to describe it, but I’d call it a candied marine fragrance. It’s something kids would enjoy! But not just kids. I like this shower gel. My husband likes this shower gel. So… I’d recommend this one. It’s unique and fun!

Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth with its “tropical rainforest & water mint” fragrance smells green, minty and masculine. I don’t want to say they forgot the “for men” sticker, but this one doesn’t smell like a girly shower gel at all. I do like it, and it’s a great, refreshing shower gel for hot summer days. But I think my husband likes it a bit more than I do. All in all, I would recommend this shower gel. It’s really unique too!

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Haul! New Stuff I bought since Boxing Day! 👀

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since Boxing Day. There is one gift set I have no photo of because it’s already been packed up for the house move. The gift set is a Thierry Mugler Aura fragrance set (plus mini shower gel and mini body lotion). OK, now let’s look at the goodies I was able to take photos of!

I bought plenty of face masks. Primark had a number of heavily discounted face masks (some £1, some 50p), and I bought over 20. I also picked up 3 Yes To face masks for a total of £2 (reduced to clear for £1 each and a 3 for 2 offer on top at Boots). I also found Simple face masks at Poundland, Boots and B&M Bargains. They normally retail for £2.99 each, but most of them were £1, some £1.49.

A set of mini nail files from Superdrug. The set was 10p (clearance). Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar for £1.99 at Home Bargains!

A set of 4 Charcoal Self-Heating One Minute Masks from Bioré£1.99 at Home Bargains. And a set of 3 fruity face masks from Superdrug for £1.49 (I bought 2 sets).

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – 3 tubes for 60p each (clearance). A set of nail files – these were 50p at Poundland (clearance bin). I use glass nail files at home, but I always carry one of those cheapo files in my handbag.

Sanctuary Spa face mask set£2.99 at Superdrug. I bought 2 sets! I have no idea if these are any good, but I thought I might give one of these sets to a friend.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth shower gels. I found these at Poundland – 400ml each for £1 each. I’m looking forward to using these cute shower gels! 😍

And this is most of what I bought since Boxing Day. I did buy 5 nail polishes (all Revlon, £1 each at Poundland), but these have been packed up for the move as well.

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.

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.
