Hi there! Today’s post is about two Palmolive shower gels I picked up at my local Family Bargains store (R.I.P. Family Bargains) before it closed (and reopened as a Poundland store). Now meet Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera, and Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals.
Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera is a gentle, yet effective, exfoliating shower gel that’s perfect for every day. I love the salty marine fragrance which goes well with the colour and the spa & sea salt theme. Very nice, refreshing, and definitely suitable for men as well! I think this shower gel has been repackaged and it’s now called “Feel The Massage“.
Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals is another lovely shower gel. Its fragrance falls into the ‘marine’ category as well. However, this one isn’t salty at all. It’s mild and it has a relaxing feel to it – the ocean theme really fits! Another good thing about this shower gel is that it’s not drying at all.
I really like these two shower gels. Mineral Massage wakes me up in the morning, while Ocean Vitality calms me down at night. Yes, I would definitely recommend these two shower gels. So if you come across them, buy them! These shower gels are 250ml, and I paid 99p each.
Hi there! I found these Palmolive shower gels at Poundland the other day. I haven’t seen these in a while, so it’s fair to assume they have been discontinued. But since I haven’t had them before, I popped them in my basket.
Now that I’ve used both shower gels, I’ve reached my verdict. And if you read on, you’ll find out what I think about Palmolive Oriental Beauty Sophisticated and Stimulating.
Sophisticated smells lovely. I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of tea and flowers. It’s not overpowering, it’s rather fresh and pure. I love the overall clean scent of this shower gel – it’s perfect for spring.
Stimulating is not what I hoped for. It’s very spicy and woody. And it’s even stronger than Palmolive’s Argan Oil shower milk which I also didn’t like. It’s gonna take me a while to use it up because I don’t really like the fragrance. But I’m sure I’ll catch another cold – and as soon as this happens, this one will be my go-to shower gel.
Palmolive Oriental Beauty shower gels are available as 250ml for £1 at Poundland (and probably other discount stores).
Hi there! Since I enjoy so many Palmolive products, I thought I’d tell you about three more favourites of mine: Palmolive Ultra Moisturisation with Olive and Moisturising Milk, Palmolive Pampering Touch with Coconut and Moisturising Milk, and Palmolive Smooth Delight with Macadamia Oil, Cocoa and, of course, Moisturising Milk.
The olive shower cream is addictive – in a good way. I love the warm, yet green fragrance, and I think this shower gel is perfect for all seasons. It’s green enough to feel refreshing on a warm summer day, but it’s also rich and comforting on a wintry day. Lovely!
The coconut shower cream smells absolutely divine. I think it doesn’t smell like coconut at all – but that’s a good thing in my book. 🙂 I can’t describe the fragrance but I’d say it’s tropical, warm, sensual and fresh – all at the same time. Perfect!
The macadamia shower cream is a new favourite of mine. It smells warm, sweet and nutty – almost like a cake or a dessert. The fragrance is absolutely delicious!
I will definitely buy all of these shower creams again. The fragrances make me happy, and the moisturising formula of Palmolive’s shower creams is soft and gentle to my skin. Palmolive Ultra Moisturisation, Palmolive Pampering Touch, and Palmolive Smooth Delight are usually about £2 each, but there’s always a half price offer somewhere. 🙂
Hi there! Today’s post is about Palmolive’s Mediterranean Moments Apricot & Strawberry and Argan Oil & Almond. These two shower milks sounded promising, so I bought them unsniffed. But now that I’ve been using these shower milks for a few days, I’m a bit on the fence. And here’s why…
These two shower milks feel great on my skin. They’re super soft and silky, and they don’t dry out my skin at all. Great formula!
But the Apricot & Strawberry shower milk smells very generic. The fragrance isn’t bad, but I think this non-sweet fruity concoction is quite forgettable. The Argan Oil & Almond shower milk smells too spicy for my taste. If I had sniffed this one in-store, I would have put it back on the shelf.
I won’t be buying these shower milks again – but that’s only because I don’t like the fragrances. The next person might love them. Still, if you’re looking for a gentle shower product, I would definitely recommend these two shower milks. Just have a sniff before you buy! 🙂
Palmolive Mediterranean Moments shower milks are available as 250ml for about £2 each. However, I’ve also seen these products at the Poundstores. And not too long ago these shower mils were 90p each at Asda. So keep your eyes peeled for the best offer.

Hi there! For the past few days it’s been raining in the South East. I think I’m coming down with a cold, so what could be better than a bubble bath using one of my favourite bath creams…
Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond and Moisturising Milk is a long-time favourite. The milky formula is gentle to the skin and the sweet almond scent is simply divine. I hope Palmolive will never discontinue it.
Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk is a rather new favourite of mine. I only discovered it recently but I’ve already bought a few backup bottles because I’m in love with its creamy, dreamy, yoghurty scent.
Both bath milks are available as 500 ml and they’re always on special offer somewhere – usually around £1 or slightly less.

Hi there! Whilst I love a good home spa experience, I’m not keen on expensive products which, in my opinion, are no better than the usual suspects from the drugstore. So meet my favourite cheap home spa buddies:
Palmolive Aromatherapy Absolute Relax with Ylang-Ylang and Iris, Morning Tonic with Tangerine and Lemongrass, and Sensual with Moroccan Rose and Ginseng. These shower gels smells absolutely amazing!
Absolute Relax is a long-term favourite shower gel of mine. The floral fragrance wraps you in a warm cocoon of iris and ylang-ylang. Absolutely heavenly! Morning Tonic is an old favourite which I haven’t seen in years. And I’m so glad it’s back. This shower gel smells of sweet greenery. It’s like a gentle wake-up on a summer morning. Sensual is a typical ‘red’ shower gel. It’s intoxicatingly feminine, sweet and elegant.
Now Palmolive, could you please bring back the matching bath gels? And could you please also make body lotions with these captivating fragrances?
Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax, Morning Tonic and Sensual are available at most supermarkets and drugstores for about £2 each. However, they’re often on special offer. A few weeks ago they were 79p each somewhere (I believe it was Home Bargains, but I’m not sure), so I bought 9 bottles!

Hi there! I know many people are obsessed with expensive shower and bathing products that promise a spa experience at home – and I can’t blame them. 😉 But I think that some of the drugstore products are just as good! Just like everyone else, I too love to try different products all the time, but one brand I always return to is Palmolive. I just love their products because they’re gentle, they smell nice (Did I mention that I am also obsessed with scents?) and they’re good value!
My skin is quite sensitive, so I like shower milks and shower creams that don’t leave my skin feeling tight and dry the moment I step out of the shower. And Palmolive shower creams are just great in this regard. My current favourites from left to right: Palmolive Irresistible Softness with Black Orchid and Moisturising Milk, Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond and Moisturising Milk, and Palmolive Feel Passionate with Passion Flower and, you guessed it, Moisturising Milk.
I’m not going to rave about how gently these shower milks cleanse my skin, but I’m going to rave about their scents! 🙂 So, here we go. Palmolive Black Orchid joined the brand’s standard assortment a couple of years ago – and I’m glad it did. I would describe its scent as a feminine, warm and velvety veil of black orchid and cashmere. Heavenly!
Palmolive Almond is a classic that has been around for decades. It’s got the most wonderful sweet almond blossom scent I have ever encountered. It’s divine! Now, Palmolive, can we please have the matching almond body lotion back?
My third favourite is a limited edition, Palmolive Passion Flower. It’s no longer available at the big supermarkets or drugstores, but some of the discount stores still have it. The scent is really gorgeous – it’s youthful, floral and fruity and it bursts with sweet juiciness. Yummy!
If these shower milk are not already part of your shower routine, then you need to give them a try! They’re usually £1 (or less) as they’re always on special offer somewhere. Happy lathering! 😀
