Radox Revive & Uplifting

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox shower gels that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Radox Revive with mandarin & lemongrass and Radox Uplifting with pink grapefruit and basil. Since these two shower gels sounded summery and refreshing, I thought now’s the right time to (finally) give them a try!

Radox Revive (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Revived) with mandarin and lemongrass is quite nice. I would describe the fragrance as a refreshing and tangy citrus fragrance! Whilst I expected a considerably sweeter fragrance, I’m not disappointed. I like the fresh fragrance!

Redox Uplifting (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Uplifted) with pink grapefruit and basil is very nice. The grapefruit note is very authentic whilst (fortunately) the basil note is hardly noticeable. This is a great shower gel. I really enjoy using it!

I know that I’ll buy these 2 Radox shower gels again, and I would recommend them to everyone! Radox shower gels are available as 250ml, and they’re usually around £2 each, but you can find them for £1 each as well (Poundstores, half price promotions, etc.).

NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s The Sunniest Juiciest Tantalising Bright Pink Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve had this shower gel in my stash for some time. It’s almost summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try. And now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’ve fallen in love with it.

Why is this shower gel so amazing? It makes me feel clean and refreshed, but it’s not drying. And the fragrance is… paradise! The grapefruit scent is juicy, fresh, and just so full of live. It’s not a sugary grapefruit fragrance for teenagers. No! It’s the perfect South Florida pink grapefruit fragrance.

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel has been discontinued. However, I hope that NSPA will recycle the formula to give us another limited edition grapefruit shower gel.

Have you tried this shower gel? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

D&G Light BlueHi there! Today’s post is about one of my favourite summer fragrances, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Yes, summer is over, but that won’t stop me from dousing myself in Light Blue for at least a few more weeks. 🙂

OK, Light Blue contains fragrant notes of lemon, apple and cedar (top notes), jasmin, bamboo and white rose (heart notes), and musk, cedar wood and amber (base notes).

In my opinion, Light Blue is all about lemons and cedar. I love the fresh, cool and crisp lemon scent with its dry cedar base. Light Blue is a modern classic that’s perfect for hot summer days.

I also love that Light Blue can be worn by men. I think it’s a perfect example of a true unisex fragrance, and it’s so much sexier than Light Blue For Men.

For as long as D&G continues to make Light Blue, I will definitely have it in my fragrance stash.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is available as 25, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette spray. Prices vary from about £22 for the smallest bottle to £70 for the largest bottle.

Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower, Blood Orange Daily Scrub and Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about some of Original Source’s fruitiest shower gels: Original Source Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange Daily Scrub and Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil. These shower gels are perfect for summer because they’re fruity, juicy and truly refreshing. I think they’re absolutely fantastic and I’ll buy them all again. But let’s take a closer look…
Original Source Shower
I love all things grapefruit, so I was happy to see that Original Source finally did a Pink Grapefruit shower gel. It’s incredibly refreshing and it smells of juicy grapefruits. Yummy!

The new Blood Orange Daily Scrub is absolutely fantastic. The scrub bits make my skin feel really soft and the fresh and zingy scent of this shower scrub is truly delightful. This is definitely going to become a new beauty staple for me.

The Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil shower gel was a very pleasant surprise after the other three skin quench shower gels left me pretty much disappointed. However, Blackcurrant & Moringa smells intensely delicious of sun-drenched blackcurrants. The shower gel also contains moisturising oil beads – and they really work!

Original Source shower gels are approved by the Vegan Society. The skin quench shower gels and the scrubs are quite new and they’re £2.69 each, the regular shower gels are £2.20 each. However, if you shop around, you can find half price or BOGOF deals easily. At the moment the big four supermarkets, Wilko and the two big drugstores all have some kind of deal.

Olay Anti-Wrinkle 2 in 1 Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow

Hi there! My quest to try as many Olay products as possible led me to this limited edition: Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow. Let me tell you right away that this daily moisturiser is that good that I’ve already bought two backup bottles. 🙂
Olay Anti-Wrinkle Pink
Honestly, if it wasn’t a limited edition, this moisturiser would become a beauty staple. It has and does everything I could ask for: The formula is silky and non-sticky. It makes my dry skin feel soft all day long and it’s perfect under make-up. It has SPF 15 and its sweet mandarin scent is absolutely divine.

I strongly recommend this product if you look for a no-fuss daily moisturiser. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration + Radiant Glow is exclusive to Superdrug. It’s available as 75 ml and it’s currently on sale for £4.95 only!

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion

Hi there! I’ve already done a couple of posts about Olay products recently – and I’ll be doing a lot more. 🙂 I’m a real Olay nut and I’m currently testing several different products. I know I’ll always return to the incredible Complete Care Day Fluid, but that doesn’t stop me from trying different moisturisers in between.

At the moment I’m using Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion. I’m quite impressed with the product because it’s similar to my favourite Complete Care moisturiser, and I can see that it might become one of my beauty staples.
Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm and Life Day Lotion 1
And here’s why: I love the formula and the scent of this moisturiser. It smells wonderfully sunny and optimistic and it moisturises my skin very well without leaving a greasy film behind. It’s also perfect under make-up because it’s easy to apply and it doesn’t sit on the skin. I cannot comment on its wrinkle-smoothing qualities because – thanks to Olay – I don’t have wrinkles, but that goes to show that Olay’s products really work.

What can I say other than… you need to try this moisturiser if you haven’t already. I cannot recommend it enough. Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Day Lotion is available as 100 ml for £10. However, there’s always a half price offer somewhere, so you can buy this gorgeous moisturiser for £5!

Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid

Hi there! Today I want to tell you why this moisturiser has been my favourite for almost ten years. Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is definitely one of the best (Maybe even THE best?) facial moisturisers you can buy for less than a fiver. It’s for normal and oily skin, but it works for my dry and sensitive skin too.

I love the formula – it’s a light fluid that is easily absorbed and therefore it’s a perfect base for make-up. It’s also not greasy, so it doesn’t clog pores. And if you’ve got a really-dry-skin-day, you can use it every couple of hours because it doesn’t build up on the skin – it sinks right in! I also love that it’s got SPF 15 which means that I don’t have to bother with ‘real’ sunscreen every time I leave the house on a sunny summer day.

And then there’s this gorgeous (yet subtle) scent that I have fallen in love with the first time I have used this fluid. I would describe this scent as youthful, clean, pure, fresh, yellow and sunny. Even now, years later, this wonderful scent still puts a smile on my face – every day. But wait, there’s more!
Olay complete care fluid
Olay Complete Care has taken care of lines and wrinkles which I’ve had since I was a teenager. I can’t tell you if it took six months, a year or longer for the lines to disappear, but it’s a fact that now, at the age of 33, I no longer have certain lines and wrinkles which I’ve had around 15 years ago.

To sum it up: I could rave about this product for hours and I cannot recommend it enough. I think Olay Complete Care day fluid is the perfect no-fuss facial moisturiser for all women between 13 and 113. If you haven’t already tried it, then you should give it a try now! 😉

Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is available as 100 ml and 200 ml. (I always buy the 200 ml bottle which lasts me for six months.) The 100 ml bottle retails for £6, the 200 ml bottle is yours for £10. However, there’s always a half price or buy one get one free offer at some drugstore or supermarket. This means the 100 ml bottle can be yours for £3, or you can buy the 200 ml bottle for £5.

If you think you would love to try it, but would prefer a moisturiser with more active anti-wrinkle properties, I recommend you try this Olay day lotion.
