Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I’ve been using for a few weeks now – Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate. Onto the review!

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream is simply wonderful. I love the fruity, sunny fragrance. It almost makes me forget how cold it’s been for the past few weeks. I also like the gentle formula. Great stuff!

Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel isn’t the most spectacular shower gel, but it is nice. The fragrance isn’t too sweet, it’s more like a red fruit and tea fragrance.

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – Precious & Irresistible

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious! This shower gel with rosewater and sandalwood smells simply amazing. I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of sunlight and amber. It’s… wow! The moisturising argan oil pearls are effective too. This is the perfect shower gel for those hot summer days when you can’t bring yourself to use a body lotion.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible with Indian lotus and waterlily is just as amazing. I’d describe it as the perfect mermaid shower gel! The marine fragrance is surprisingly sophisticated, and I know I’ll be enjoying it very much these next few weeks.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible are available as 250ml. They have disappeared from the drugstore and supermarket shelves, but they’re available at bargain stores. I picked these up for 89p each at B&M Bargains!

100% Awesome – Imperial Leather Foamy Banana Shower Cream, Bath Cream & Hand Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana products. At the moment Imperial Leather offers a shower cream, a bath cream, and a hand wash! And I think these products are 100% awesome!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Shower Cream (250ml) is one of my favourite shower products. It’s happiness in a bottle. The fragrance is 100% foamy banana, but it’s not overly sweet. This is the perfect shower gel to start the day with. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Bath Cream (500ml) is just as awsome as the shower cream. I love the non-drying formula and the insanely gorgeous fragrance. This is the perfect bath treat before bed time. 11 stars!

Imperial Leather‘s Foamy Banana Hand Wash (300ml) is one of the 2 best hand washes ever (the other one’s Carex’s Bubble Gum hand wash). It’s a real treat for hands! 11 stars!

I would recommend Imperial Leather’s Foamy Banana products to everyone! I’ve gone through multiple hand washes over the past year (or so), but I’ve only recently tried the shower gel and the bath cream (which I picked up for £1 each), and I feel like an idiot for not trying them sooner. So… if you’re not already in love with these products, you need to try them asap!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream and Thai Fusion Bath Moments

Hi there! If you read my blog, you may know that I’ve got drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries. and that I’m working my way through my stash. Two of the (g)oldies I’ve just rediscovered are Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream with green tea, rice milk and jasmine, and Imperial Leather Thai Fusion Bath Moments with pomegrante, hibiscus and milk.
imperial-leather-bath-01
Imperial Leather Japanese Spa
(bath cream & shower gel) was originally a limited edition, but it became part of Imperial Leather’s standard collection. It’s been repackaged a few times already. And it’s no surprise Imperial Leather held onto the formula because the fragrance is clean, green, sweet and sensual. It’s very nice!

Thai Fusion has also been a limited edition. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s a shame because the exotic floral-fruity fragrance is warm, sweet, sunny and simply beautiful. I’ll miss it when it’s gone!

Imperial Leather bath products are available as 500ml. Prices vary depending on where you shop, but there’s always a store that runs a half price promotion (which happens to be the reason why I have drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries). 🙂

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?

Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance

Hi there! The last time I swung by my local Poundstretcher, they had lots of big 500ml Imperial Leather shower gels for £1. I picked up a few bottles for my husband and myself. However, I also remembered that I still had quite a few Imperial Leather shower gels in my stash…

So I decided to move Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry and Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance with plum blossom and violet from one of those boxes under the bed into the bathroom. I’ve been using these two products on and off for a few weeks now, so it’s time for a review. 🙂
Imperial Leather Shower
Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry smells like a blend of tea and flowers. I like it! The formula is simply fantastic because this body wash makes my skin feel hydrated. Wow!

Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance with plum blossom and violet is lovely. This body wash feels just as hydrating as the Funfair Nostalgia one. And I’d describe the fragrance as a dense and dark floral fragrance with a dollop of plum jam. Wonderful!

Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance are available as 250ml (drugstores, supermarkets) as well as 500ml (bargain stores). The RRP for the regular 250ml bottles is around £2, but they’re often on special for half price or less. The big 500ml bottles that you can find in bargain stores are usually around £1. 🙂
