Hi there! Today’s post is about the Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Body Mists that I bought a few months ago. These 5 body mists – which were available in a winter-themed set – are supposed to match (most of) the Winter Woodland shower gels and body lotions (which I’ve reviewed here and here). Now let me tell you if these body mists are any good. 🙂
Snow Flurries smells like watered-down sugar water. You’re not sure what this means? Well, this body mist comes pretty close to being fragrance-free! It’s water with a hint of sweetness. Frosty Delight is some kind of sugar water as well. It’s not as weak as Snow Flurries, but that doesn’t make this ‘fragrance’ any better. Berry Frost smells nothing like the matching shower gel (which actually smells like frozen berries). This body mist is more like a random (and cheap) mix of sweet-smelling fragrance notes.
Peppermint Kiss smells quite strongly of peppermint – just like the matching shower gel. This one’s actually well done! However, I don’t like peppermint scents in toiletries. The Winter Snow body mist smells nothing like the Winter Snow shower gel. The shower gel smells like apple tea, but this body mist is more like a clean lotus fragrance. It’s actually quite alright.
All in all, I wouldn’t really recommend this set. And I’ll give these body mists away. If you’d still like to try this set, check if your local Poundstretcher still has it.
Hi there! Today’s post is about the 3 body lotions from the Winter Woodland Christmas set. I’ve already reviewed the 3 Winter Woodland shower gels, so let me tell you more about the body lotions. Here they are – Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Frosty Delight, Winter Snow and Peppermint Kiss.
First of all, I have to say that I like the formula of these body lotions. They’re rather light, but they’re not runny. They’re not sticky and they’re great if you’re in a hurry. 🙂 Now let’s get to their scents!
Frosty Delight smells like frozen berries. I don’t love the fragrance, but I think it’s alright. I’ll definitely continue to use this body lotion. Winter Snow smells like apple tea. I like it! 🙂
Peppermint Kiss is 100% peppermint. The strong peppermint fragrance is just overwhelming. I don’t like toiletries with a strong peppermint fragrance, so I gave this one away. If you want your skin to smell like peppermint, this is the perfect body lotion for you.
Whilst I’ve now reviewed the Winter Woodland shower gels and body lotions, I still have to try the Winter Woodland body mists. Like I said in yesterday’s post, I got my Winter Woodland sets from Poundstretcher. Set 1 contains 5 body mists, and set 2 contains 3 shower gels and 3 body lotions (120ml each). So if you’d like to try these products and there’s a Poundstretcher near you, you know what to do! 😀
Hi there! I bought two Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland toiletries sets on Boxing Day last year. Set 1 contained 5 body sprays, and set 2 contained 3 shower gels and 3 body lotions. Today I’m reviewing the shower gels, so meet Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Snow Flurries, Berry Frost and Orange Icicle.
Snow Flurries smells like a watered-down raspberry jelly (no fruits, juice only). It smells sweet, fruity and cold! I think it’s alright. Berry Frost is fairly nice too. It smells like frozen berries – almost like I Love…’s Mixed Berries shower gel.
Orange Icicle is my least favourite of the bunch. It’s not as bad I Love…’s Chocolates & Oranges shower gel, but it’s not that much better because the orange (and cinnamon) fragrance in this shower gel smells very cheap. I’ve already squeezed this shower gel into the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen.
I’ll try to have the review of the body lotions up tomorrow. In the meantime… I got this toiletries set (£3.99 for 3 shower gels and 3 body lotions, 120ml each) from Poundstretcher. So if you’re interested in this set and there’s a Poundstretcher near you… you know what to do! 😀
