Dolly’s Mixtures Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dolly’s Mixtures’ Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel. Well, I’ve already reviewed a number of products from this brand.

And whilst I didn’t like every single product, I still wanted to give this one a chance. So let me tell you more!

OK, so I used this shower gel this morning – and I hated it right away.

As soon as I had lathered up the shower gel, it started to smell like a mix of plastic and something fizzy. It was bad. Really bad!

I don’t know who thought that bottling and selling this stuff would be a good idea. I mean, someone must have OK’ed this stuff – but why?

I’ll squeeze the contents of this bottle into the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen. And that’ll be the end of it.

Dolly’s Mixtures’ Rainbow Sherbet Shower Gel is available as 300ml for £2 (I spent £1 when it was on special).

I’ve also seen Dolly’s Mixtures products on sale at Poundland – and I think that’s not a good sign. I think the entire line might be discontinued!

Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility Bath Creams

Hi there! Today’s review is about 2 bath products that I’ve been enjoying lately – Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility. Whilst I generally prefer a shower, nothing beats a hot bath on a cold evening. 🙂 Now, without further ado, onto the reviews!
imperial-leather-bath-03
Imperial Leather Paradise Island with peach nectar & vanilla bean smells exactly like peach nectar and vanilla! I love the gorgeous fragrance because it’s beautifully done and because it smells like… summer, sunlight, warmth and pure happiness. Awesome stuff!

Imperial Leather Sea Of Tranquility with sea samphire & marine elements is really good too. The fragrance is definitely marine, but fortunately it doesn’t smell like a bath product for men. Very nice!

All in all, I’m happy with these products and I’d recommend them – especially Paradise Island! 🙂 I bought these two 500ml bath creams for either 99p or £1 each at one of the bargain stores (I think it was Home Bargains).

100% Awesome – I Love… Chocolate Truffle Bath & Shower Crème, Nourishing Body Butter, Bath Fizzer, Refreshing Body Spritzer

Hi there! It’s been a while since I picked up a number of I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle products. Whilst I hadn’t forgotten about these gems, I haven’t managed to actually try them – until now! If you read on, I’ll tell you why I love these products (well, 3 out of 4) so much. 🙂

Let’s start with I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle Bath & Shower Crème! I think this shower cream is amazing. The chocolate truffle fragrance is simply delicious! But there’s more! This shower cream produces the perfect lather, and it doesn’t feel drying at all. Great stuff!

I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter is one of the best body butters I’ve ever tried. It’s rich and nourishing. However, it’s not sticky! And the chocolate truffle fragrance is 100% awesome!

I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle Bath Fizzer is kind of a dud. This bath fizzer hardly smells of anything. I’d describe the fragrance as carton with a hint of bottom shelf milk chocolate. Disappointing!

I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle Refreshing Body Mist is really lovely! It’s not the most longlasting fragrance – but I wouldn’t expect a body mist to last all day anyway. In any event, this body mist smells lovely, and the yummy chocolate truffle fragrance lingers on my scarves. Wonderful!

If you’re interested in this collection, you can find the following products:
I Love… Chocolate Truffle Bath & Shower Crème 500ml,
I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter 200ml,
I Love… Chocolate Truffle Bath Fizzer 150g (= 2 fizzers, 75g each)
I Love… Chocolate Truffle Refreshing Body Mist 100ml

Most of these products are only available as part of gift sets (I’ve seen Chocolate Truffle gift sets at TK Maxx just days ago). However, I managed to buy about 8 single tubs of this fantastic body butter (Poundworld).

Have you tried these products? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

My Little Pony Body Mist, Bath & Shower Gel, Leave-In Hair Detangler

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 My Little Pony branded products – My Little Pony Body Mist, My Little Pony Shower Gel, and My Little Pony Leave-In Hair Detangler. These 3 products were made by Kokomo Studio, a UK-based toiletries manufacturer.

Alright, let’s start with the My Little Pony Body Mist! The fruity and powdery fragrance is quite faint, and it evaporates quickly. After a few minutes you won’t be able to smell it on your skin anymore. However, since this body mist is clearly aimed at young girls, the faint fragrance isn’t really an issue because kids can spray away without stinking up their bedrooms with sickly sweet smells. Cool!

So whilst the fragrance isn’t what an adult would expect, I still like the body mist because it feels hydrating. It contains oils, but I promise you that it’s not sticky. I really like to spray it down my back. Just 2 or 3 sprays a couple of times a week – that’s enough to make the skin on my back feel super soft. Great stuff! If you’d like to try this body mist, or if you’d like to buy it as a present for a young relative, the 100ml bottle is £2 at Primark.

Onto the My Little Pony Bath & Shower Gel! I really like this shower gel. It lathers up nicely, and it smells of honeydew melons. It’s also not drying! What’s not to like? I paid 99p for the big 400ml bottle (Home Bargains).

And how’s the My Little Pony Leave-In Hair Detangler? I think this product is quite alright. It’s not ground-breaking, but it’s much better than L’Oréal’s Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray (which I will review shortly). So yes, this dirt-cheap My Little Pony product really helps detangle my hair! In regards to the fragrance, all I can say is that it’s faint and fruity (something like pear and melon…), and that it evaporates quickly. But that’s great because I wouldn’t want my hair detangler to compete with the fragrance I’m wearing. By the way, the 150ml bottle can be yours for £1 (Poundworld).

To make a long story short, I’m happy that I picked up these products. I don’t always make the best decisions when I buy products just because I love the cute packaging. However, these 3 products will serve me well for the next couple of months, so I have no reason to complain at all!

Pâtisserie De Bain – Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel & Body Souffle

Hi there! Today’s post is about a body care combo that I received as a gift (a gift with purchase that is…) a little while ago – Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel and Body Souffle. These products sound delicious, don’t they?
patissere-de-bain-creme-patissiere-2
Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel is alright. It doesn’t feel drying. However, the shower gel doesn’t lather up properly. I think this is rather strange if you consider that the 2nd ingredient is SLS… Anyway, I’m satisfied that this shower gel cleanses my skin well, so I have no reason to complain.

Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Body Souffle is a light moisturiser that goes on easily and doesn’t feel greasy. I’m quite happy with the body souffle. However, I don’t think it would be hydrating enough for people with dry skin.
patisserie-de-bain-creme-patissiere-1
What about the fragrance? Well, I’ve smelled it before. This fragrance and Baylis & Harding’s Vanilla Sugar Donut fragrance are one and the same! I think that both ‘vanilla sugar donut’ and ‘crème pâtissière’ are suitable names to describe the fragrance.

Whilst I think that these products smell nice and pleasant, I wouldn’t repurchase them because they’re simply not my favourites. If you’re interested, the gift set (which contains a 175ml shower gel, a 175ml body souffle, and a body puff) is £9.99 at Rose & Co. England.

Have you tried these products? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good & So Sweet

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive shower gels that I picked up when they were brand-new. I wanted to try and review them asap – but that didn’t happen because I also wanted to get on top of all the toiletries that I’ve been hoarding… I was destined to fail!

Well, I’m now making an effort to use what I’ve already got (instead of stocking up). So I finally managed to try Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good and So Sweet.
Palmolive Good Sweet
Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good wih frangipani, neroli and mango is gorgeous. It smells floral, fruity and tropical. I also love how soft and gentle the lather feels on my skin. Fantastic stuff!

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet with rooibos, rose and almond has become one of my favourite shower gels. The fragrance is sweet and cuddly… it’s 100% dreamy! I’d describe it as a floral caramel tea fragrance. Pure awesomeness!

Palmolive Aroma Moments shower gels are available as 250ml for £2 – £3. However, the more reasonable retailers run promotions all the time, so you should be able to find these shower gels for £1 each at least every once in a while.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Superdrug bath creams that I’ve had for quite some time – Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath. These 500ml bath creams are £1.39 each, but they were on special, so I bought 2 for the price of 1. Now onto the reviews!

Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath with shea extract and the fragrance of vanilla and almond is really nice. Whilst the bath cream isn’t nourishing, I’m happy that it isn’t drying. And the fragrance is sweet and cuddly. Good job, Superdrug!

Superdrug Moisturising Crème Bath with rose extract and the fragrance of shea butter and ginger is just as nice. Again, I don’t think this product is moisturising, but it doesn’t dry out my skin, so I can’t complain. The fragrance is lovely too. It’s a sweet rose fragrance. A candied rose, if that makes sense.

I haven’t seen any Superdrug own brand bath products the last time I swung by my local store. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I think they might introduce a new bottle design. Well, that’s what they did with the shower gels…

Anyhoo… Superdrug Nourishing Crème Bath & Moisturising Crème Bath are certified cruelty-free (they carry the Leaping Bunny logo) and suitable for vegans. Awesome stuff!
