Imperial Leather Monkey Business Guava Blossom & Jungle Leaves Icons Shower Gel, Cussons Creations Comfort Bottled Magnolia & Almond Milk Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up at Poundland and B&M Bargains – Imperial Leather Monkey Business Guava Blossom & Jungle Leaves Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Comfort Bottled Magnolia & Almond Milk Shower Gel.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Monkey Business Guava Blossom & Jungle Leaves Icons Shower Gel! This is a fun shower gel. It smells sweet and fruity, but also tropical. It’s difficult to describe. A tropical candy scent? Well, I’m definitely enjoying it. I think most women would enjoy it. Kids too. And even some men. My husband gave this shower gel a try too, and he also liked it. I would buy this shower gel again!

Onto Cussons Creations Comfort Bottled Magnolia & Almond Milk Shower Gel. This shower gel is a strange one. It smells of almond blossoms, but it’s too floral and too soapy for my taste. It comes across as a bit old-fashioned. This isn’t a bad thing, and the next person might love it. But it’s just not my favourite type of scent in shower or bath products. The shower gel is super gentle though. And it’s also certified cruelty-free as it’s PETA-approved. 😍

Imperial Leather Monkey Business Guava Blossom & Jungle Leaves Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Comfort Bottled Magnolia & Almond Milk Shower Gel are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel, Palmolive Sauna Retreat Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 new shower gels I picked up at Superdrug last week – Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel and Palmolive Sauna Retreat Shower Gel. Palmolive is probably my favourite brand for shower and bath products, so I’m always happy to give their new products a try.

Let’s start with Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel. From the bottle, it smelled a bit familiar. Lovely and familiar. But I couldn’t put my finger on it. When I used it in the shower, I realised it was the reincarnation of an old favourite – Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic. I have one more bottle of Morning Tonic in my stash, and after sniffing and testing both shower gels side by side, I can confirm that Hidden Heaven and Morning Tonic are about 97% the same. Morning Tonic is a bit stronger, and that’s what lets me tell these shower gels apart. But it’s pretty much the same tangerine and lemongrass fragrance! 😍

Onto Palmolive Sauna Retreat Shower Gel! This is another fabulous shower gel that I like a lot! It has a beautiful warm and cuddly vanilla scent with woods and macadamia in the background. Macadamia isn’t listed anywhere, but vanilla, woods and macadamia come to my nose. I will leave this shower for when it’s less hot in a few weeks.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these shower gels. If you’re interested, Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel and Palmolive Sauna Retreat Shower Gel are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel, Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels with long names – Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel. I found these at Poundland just last week.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel which looks and smells super cute. The fragrance reminds me of those boiled raspberry sweets which I loved when I was a kid. I need to check if they’re still around. In the meantime, this delicious shower gel will have to do.

Onto Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel which smells absolutely lovely and luxurious from the bottle. Unfortunately, this shower gel doesn’t smell as nice as it’s lathered up; think supermarket own brand apple and elderflower fizzy water. Still, it’s definitely a decent shower gel for this time of year as it smells green, fresh and fruity. And I love that this shower gel is PETA-approved, so it’s certified cruelty-free! 😍

Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about a shower gel that I used to love – but I haven’t used it in ages. Mainly because I have wayyy too many toiletries. I’m talking about boxes under the bed! But it is what it is. You shop like a maniac, you end up with a lot of random stuff.

Anyhoo, enough complaining! Let’s look at this Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream.

I’m happy to report that this shower gel is as nice as I remembered it. It smells fruity, juicy, sunny, summery and tropical. I also like how gentle this shower gel is. It lathers up well, but it’s not drying at all. Great stuff!

I would recommend this shower gel. If you’re interested Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream is available as 250ml and 400ml. I bought my bottle at a bargain store.

Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean. This shower gel promises instantly refreshed skin. This sounds good!

I’ve been using this shower gel on and off for the past 2 weeks, and I like it. It’s cleansing, but it also feels gentle – this is nice!

I do like the fragrance – it’s a mix of marine notes and grapefruit. Definitely refreshing and also unisex. My husband has given this shower gel a try, and he likes it too. He actually thought it’s “for men”.

If you’re looking for a refreshing unisex shower gel, I’d recommend this one. Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean is available as 250ml for about £2. I paid £1 (Poundland).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap. I don’t think I’ve ever tried any product from this brand, but this soap was on special, and I also saw that this soap is certified vegan (by The Vegan Society) and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). So I bought it!

I tried this soap today, and whilst I like it, I don’t love it. The soap is a light green, curved bar soap. It has a classic soap scent with aloe vera mixed in. It lathers up well, and I found it to be cleansing. I would recommend it after a sweaty work-out! However, the soap is drying, and using a body lotion is a must after the shower.

All in all, this is a decent soap. It’s not a favourite, but worth a try if you love bar soaps for the shower. It’s also a good buy if you want to support a vegan and cruelty-free brand! Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Hand Made Soap is available as 100g for about £2.75. I paid £1.50 (special offer).

Reducing My Oldies Stash – I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème

Hi there! Today’s post is about this I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème.

I’ve previously reviewed 2 products from the Mango & Papaya range, and I liked them a lot. So when I dug up this shower gel, I was happy to give it a try.

If you sniff the shower gel from the bottle, you think it has a generic fruity scent. It’s not bad, but definitely not remarkable.

However, once you start lathering up the shower gel on your skin, it smells delicious! Think of a mix of sunlight and juicy fruit bubblegum – but without the sugar. This shower gel smells like summer in a bottle!

This product is also supposed to work as a “bubble bath”. So I’ve tried that too. And I’m very happy to confirm that it creates amazing bubbles and that the fragrance also works for a bath. Great stuff!

If you’re interested, I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème is available as 250ml and 500ml. I picked up the 500ml bottle at some discount store, although I don’t remember how much I paid.

Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry with promise to help you de-stress and unwind. The salts are a sea salt blend, scented with the sweet and fruity fragrance of acai berries. Simply use 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts for a full bath.

I’ve given these bath salts a try, and I love them! The fragrance is amazing – sweet, pink, fruity and tropical. It’s very enjoyable! I had a post-workout bath with these bath salts, and it was amazing. My husband also gave these bath salts a try, and he loved them just as much. These bath salts will become a regular purchase!

If you’re interested, Radox Detoxed Bath Salts With Acai Berry are available as a 900g pouch. I paid £2.25 (special offer at Sainsbury’s).

Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash, Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels that I started to use last week – Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash which is pretty much what you’d expect it to be. The shower gel is cleansing but feels gentle, and the raspberry and lime blossom adds a nice floral-fruity touch. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it.

Onto Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath which isn’t as nice as expected. The original bubble gum fragrance that Carex used to have in their hand soap was much better compared to whatever it is that they used in this shower gel. Also, this shower gel isn’t very cleansing, so it’s only for when you haven’t broken a sweat. I’m not impressed.

If you’re interested, Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.
