NSPA Mango Fragrance Body Mist, NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.

NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂

NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!

NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – NSPA Caramel Chocolate Shower & Bath Gel

nspa caramel chocolateHi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Rich And Velvety Decadent Caramel Chocolate Shower & Bath Gel which I bought last year.

Back then I thought I’d use this shower gel right away, but I had so many part-used bottles that I wanted to finish first. In addition, this one is a 500ml bottle!

And all of a sudden it was summer and I switched to fruity shower products. 😀

But a few days ago I finally started to use this shower gel. And I love it!

The gel itself is quite thick which is nice because I can’t spill it by accident. And I love the shimmering golden brown colour of this shower gel.

But it doesn’t just look chocolatey – it smells chocolatey too! Whilst it’s a caramel chocolate shower gel, the caramel note is quite faint. The rich chocolate aroma is the star of the show, no doubt!

Another thing I like is that this shower gel doesn’t feel drying. It lathers up well, but it’s very gentle! All in all, I think this is a fantastic shower product. I hope NSPA does the same limited edition again next year. If so, I’ll be stocking up!

22 New Products – Home Bargains, Poundworld, Poundland & Asda Beauty Haul

Hi there! If you read my blog, and if you remember this post – you know I’d like to get away from being a beauty and toiletries hoarder. However, I simply can’t resist a bargain when I see one. Now let’s have a look at the new stuff that’s going to be stashed away somewhere at my place…
haul-10
I found these NSPA shower gels at Home Bargains – for 79p each. These are 500ml and they’re normally £3 at Asda. I think these ones are going to be discontinued. 😦 By the way, all NSPA products are made in the UK.
haul-11
Home Bargains also had a few nice and cheap body mists. From left to right: Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Argan & Marula 150ml, Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple 150ml, Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist100ml, NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Body Mist 200ml.

The Dolly’s Mixtures Body Mist was 49p (usually £2 at Asda), the other three body mists were 79p each. I’ve never seen the brand Anovia anywhere before today, so I can’t comment on what their products cost elsewhere, but the NSPA fragrances are usually £3 at Asda. Oh, and all these body mists were made in the UK!
haul-12
Up next we’ve got Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine shampoo & conditioner. They’re 300ml each and they were £1 each (special offer) at Asda. The next item is NSPA’s Cherry Body Scrub – also from Home Bargains. The 225ml scrub set me back 79p (instead of £3 at Asda). The eyeshadow brush is from Poundworld – of course it was £1.
haul-13
And here’s the actual beauty stuff – 2 Barry M eyeshadows (£1 for the pack of 2), 2 Sally Hansen nail polishes, 2 Max Factor eyeshadows, 2 Max Factor nail polishes, 2 L’Oréal nail polishes and 1 Rimmel nail polish which is a backup. Some of these products came from Poundland, some from Poundworld. All in all I paid £10 in total for all these eyeshadows and nail polishes.

Yes, I stocked up on stuff I didn’t really need. But everything was so cheap. In fact I only paid £19.02 for everything! I live for bargains, you know. Bargain hunting might actually be ma raison d’être. 🙂 Have you done any shopping recently? Any hauls you’d like to tell me about? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for reading!

42 New Products – Asda, Superdrug & Bargain Buys Beauty Haul

Hi there! In the past couple of months I haven’t done that much stocking up on stuff I don’t need. 😀 But I just couldn’t resist temptation (offers) the other day. I went to Asda – and found a few items I had to have. And I placed three Superdrug orders in 24 hours. And then I swung by my local Bargain Buys store… Now here’s what I bought!
NSPA at Asda
NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist (200ml), NSPA Moisturising Shea Butter (200ml), NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel (500ml) and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist (200ml). These products were all on special and they were £2 each.
Haul 6
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel (300ml) and Body Mist (100ml) – these were on special for 75p each! 2 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask tubes (75ml each, there was a buy one get second half price offer – so that’s £3.98 in total for 150ml of product), Tommyguns ‘Leave me in Conditioner’ & Styling Crème (250ml) – I bought this one because it was 70p!
Haul 5
3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Face Masks – 49p each, 3 for 2 offer – so I paid 98p in total for 3 face masks. B. Soft Blendable Kohl Eyeliner 122 Chocolate and 100 Black – these were 90p each. B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick 54 Eton Mess and 186 Rose Quartz. The lippies were £1.80 each. And then there’s the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlight Serum – it was £3.
Haul 7
Superdrug Optimum PhytoBrighter Black Moisturiser and Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. These products are usually £12.99 each – but thanks to a half price offer I paid £6.45 each only.
Haul 3
B. nail polishes were 30p – so I just picked a few randomly – Mulberry, Peach Melba, 3 base coats, Piglet, Minx and Sea Foam.
Haul 4
The day before Superdrug reduced the prices on their B. range dramatically (I think it’s going to be discontinued) was the last day of the 3 for 2 deal on all make-up. I didn’t want to buy anything this time, but MUA nail polishes were 50p only – so I bought 9 polishes for £3 in total. I chose these colours: Red Rose, Leapfrog, Whitewash, Fever Red, Orchid and Pitch Black. I also added two clear polishes to make the most of the 3 for 2 offer. 🙂
Haul 9
I also like to go to Bargain Buys. I always find at least one make-up item or nail polish to buy. This time I bagged 2 NYC nail polish trio packs – they were £1 each. Yes, that’s 6 polishes for £2 in total! The shades in the first set are: I Need A Dollar, Flame The Night and Lavender Cupcake. The shades in the second set are: Love Never Dies, Empire Purple and Perpetual Peony. The picture below is what the trio packs look like. So if you’ve got a Bargain Buys or Poundworld near you, you might want to swing by to check what kind of goodies they’ve got. 🙂
Haul 8
So this is it. Finally! 😀 I didn’t have to buy more skin care, I certainly didn’t need any toiletries, and I don’t even want to mention my nail polish stash (some of the polishes I bought are back-ups of what I’ve already got). But with all those great offers I just couldn’t resist! What can I say? I’m a compulsive bargain hunter! By the way, I only spent just under £44 in total for all of those 42 products – not bad at all! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! ♥

NSPA Rich Body Butter Honey

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Honey Body Butter. NSPA is a UK-based brand that is exclusive to Asda. I’ve reviewed a few different NSPA products before, so have a look if you’re interested.

OK, let’s focus on the actual product review now. 🙂 NSPA’s honey body butter smells sweet and quite honey-like. Sure, it’s obvious it’s not a food. But unlike many other honey-themed products, this body butter doesn’t smell of cheap coconut suntan lotion.
NSPA Honey Butter
The body butter is very rich, so it’s great for dry skin. However, the butter is also quite sticky which means it’s not the perfect body butter for warm summer days. And if you’re generally not OK with sticky body creams, you won’t like this one.

I prefer my moisturisers to be non-sticky, but this body butter is so incredibly moisturising (it’s wonderful!) that I don’t mind the stickiness every once in a while. I think I’ll be using it once a week as a skin treat.

NSPA Rich Body Butter with Honey is available at Asda. At £3 the 200ml tub is reasonably priced. However, keep your eyes peeled for special offers . 🙂

NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel

NSPA Caramel FudgeHi there! About two months ago I bought quite a few NSPA products. I’ve already reviewed the wonderful Orient fragrance, and now’s the time to take a closer look at NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel.

I really like the thick texture of this shower & bath gel because I can’t spill it by accident. And the shimmering gel in golden and caramel hues looks very pretty.

The gel lathers up nicely and it smells absolutely delicious. NSPA did a really good job creating an authentic caramel fudge fragrance.

Another good thing is that this shower & bath gel doesn’t dry out my skin. It really feels rich and velvety – just as it says on the bottle.

It’s too bad I’m only using this product now. It would have been perfect during the colder months…

NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel a limited edition product. It’s only £2 for a huge 500ml bottle. My local Asda has lots of stock left, so yours might too!

NSPA Orient

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Orient fragrance. I’ve been on the hunt (!) for NSPA’s fragrance collection for almost a year. And just a few days ago – when I least expected it – I found exactly one bottle of NSPA’s Orient at my local Asda. Of course, it went straight in my basket. 🙂

Now let’s look at the fragrance. NSPA’s web site says it contains the following fragrant notes: orchids, amber, silk, lily, vanilla, musk and mandarin oil. So is it any good? If you read on, you’ll find out.
NSPA Orient
I think Orient is a beautiful, elegant and grown-up floriental fragrance. It reminds me of all those classic violet and vanilla perfumes. But Orient is more elegant and modern because – instead of violets – it features sensual aromas of orchids on a warm bed of vanilla, amber and musk. Orient is a very enjoyable interpretation of a classic floriental fragrance. Well done, NSPA!

NSPA Orient is available as 50 ml Eau de Toilette. I got my Orient fragrance for £4, but I think the actual RRP is £8. Either way, this one’s a real bargain!
