Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet & Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise

Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. A few weeks ago, one of my friends picked up a set of 5 travel-sized Treacle Moon shower gels. My friend knows that I love fresh and fruity toiletries, so she gave me these 2 60ml shower gels. I’ve now tried (and finished) them, and here’s what I think.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet is simply wonderful. The sunny honeydew melon fragrance is 100% spot on. I love it! I hope Treacle Moon launches this fragrance in the UK. I’d be more than happy to pick up those giant 500ml bottles on a regular basis!

Since I love all things grapefruit, I had high hopes for Treacle Moon‘s Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. However, this shower gel isn’t great. It smells like warm plastic and fruit. If I hadn’t known that it’s supposed to be a grapefruit fragrance, I would never have guessed it! I’ve also looked up every single grapefruit shower gel that I’ve used over the past 4 years (thanks to my blog, this took me less than 2 minutes), and this one is the only one I didn’t like.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise are available as part of a 5-piece shower gel gift set (5x60ml). My friend bough the set in Germany. I have never come across these 2 fragrances over here in the UK, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for Happy Melon Sorbet!

The Battle Of The Unicorns – Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower And Bath vs. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak

Hi there! I haven’t done a product comparison for quite some time. So when I saw these 2 unicorn-themed products, I thought they would be perfect for a comparison post! And here’s how these 2 products fared. 🙂

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower & Bath is good but not great. The fragrance is best described as a sugared violet sweets fragrance. It’s enjoyable but very fleeting. The formula is nice. I wouldn’t say the shower gel is hydrating, but it certainly doesn’t make my skin feel dry. Like I said, this shower gel is good but not great.

Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak was a nice surprise! From the bottle it smells terribly bland, and I thought this one might end up in the hand wash dispenser. However, I’m glad I gave this product a try because once it hits the skin, it smells pleasantly floral and soapy. Whilst the fragrance isn’t very special, I do like it. I’m also happy to report that this product doesn’t make my skin feel dry.

Whilst I ended up liking both products, I think Carex‘s Unicorn Magic is the better product. The cute fragrance fits the cute unicorn theme perfectly.

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic is available as Hand Wash and Shower & Bath.I paid £1 for the 500ml Shower & Bath. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak is available as Shower Gel and Bath Soak. I paid £1 for the 500ml Bath Soak.

Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel.

Since the Treacle Moon shower gels that I’ve previously tried were pretty amazing, I was looking forward to give this one a try. And I’m glad I did!

I love the thick gel. It cleanses my skin properly, but it also feels gentle – just like a shower cream.

The fragrance is best described as yummy. It smells like a mix of caramel and Cadbury Crunchie’s honey and toffee core. It smells amazing. 🙂

I think this is another wonderful shower gel from Treacle Moon. I can definitely see myself repurchasing it.

Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £2 (save 1/3 offer).

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream & Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream

Hi there! I’m reviewing 2 shower gels today – Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream and Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream.

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream is an old favourite. I hadn’t bought it in years (and I don’t even know why), but it was on special when I saw it the other day, and so I picked it up! This shower cream is fantastic. It feels amazing on the skin, and the soapy orange fragrance is a delight. It’s a bit old-fashioned, but it also reminds me of cheese cake (with mandarin segments in it). Great stuff!

Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream was new to me. But I’m glad I finally bought this shower cream because it feels great on my skin, and the dark chocolate fragrance is lovely. This is the perfect shower cream for this time of year.

Nivea Indulgent Moisture Orange Shower Cream and Nivea Indulging Moisture Cocoa Caring Shower Cream are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

Merry Christmas!

Enliven Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel, Enliven Mango & Papaya Shower Gel

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower gels – Enliven Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel & Enliven Mango And Papaya Shower Gel. I’ve never heard of the brand Enliven until I found these shower gels at my local Poundstretcher store. These are 400ml bottles, and they were 69p each. This is incredible value if you consider that these shower gels contain quality skin care ingredients like vitamin E, shea butter and argan oil. I’ve been using these shower gels on and off for little while now, and here’s what I think.

Enliven Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel smells like pink grapefruit! The fragrance is perfectly natural, sunny and slightly tangy. It’s the perfect shower gel to wake you up in the morning. It’s very nice, and I’ve been enjoying it a lot lately.

Enliven Mango And Papaya Shower Gel smells unbelievably natural. The fruity fragrance is 100% spot on. If you love sweet mango (with a touch of papaya), you should give this a try!

Based on my experience, I would recommend these shower gels. I love the grapefruit shower gel a little more, but they’re both excellent, and I can definitely see myself picking them up again! Enliven Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel & Enliven Mango And Papaya Shower Gel are available as 400ml.

Boots Garden Collection – Rose Body Wash & Body Lotion, Lavender Body Wash & Body Lotion, Magnolia Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about BootsGarden Collection toiletries. Once a year, these products are available as a set of 5 travel-sized products (3x 100ml shower gel, 2x 75ml body lotion). The designs are different every year, but the products are always the same. Onto the reviews!

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Wash is very nice. It lathers up well, it cleanses my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The fresh rose fragrance is very well done.

Boots Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion is a light body moisturiser. It’s not sticky at all, and it’s absorbed in no time, so it would be perfect for the warmer seasons and for workday mornings (or whenever you’re in a hurry). The fragrance is fresh and rosey.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Wash is just as great as the rose body wash. The aromatic lavender fragrance is very authentic.

Boots Garden Collection Lavender Body Lotion is just as wonderful as the rose body lotion. It provides light hydration, and the lavender scent is simply lovely.

Boots Garden Collection Magnolia Body Wash has blown me away. The formula of the shower gel is great, and the fragrance is… floral, sunny, transparent… with a touch of honey. Gorgeous!

Boots did a great job with these Garden Collection toiletries. I paid £2.50 per set which is a total steal!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 products which I’ll miss dearly when they’re gone – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter.

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream is one of the best shower products I’ve used all year. It cleanses my skin, but it also makes my skin feel super soft. I love it! The oriental fragrance is simply gorgeous – it’s dark, feminine and positively addictive. This product deserves 11 stars!

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter with sweet almond oil, shea butter and argan oil is a perfect 11 too! This body butter is one of the richest body butters that I’ve ever tried. However, this body butter is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. The fragrance is 100% gorgeous and longlasting. This body butter is simply perfect!

Unfortunately, Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter have been discontinued and replaced with lesser products. 😦
