Hi there! Today’s post is about I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie and I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer. I’m not entirely sure where and when I bought these products. But I’m sure I’ll be able to finish them this summer. Now onto the review!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is a true 2 in 1 product. It exfoliates my skin nicely, but it’s also a proper shower product. And it smells fruity and juicy. It’s really nice!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer turned out to be just as nice. Initially I thought this body spray was OK, but after a few days I started to like it. The mango & papaya fragrance is quite well done. It’s fruity and juicy, but it’s not cloyingly sweet. It smells just like… summer!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is available as 200ml, I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer is available as 100ml. Superdrug no longer sells I Love…’s Mango & Papaya collection, so I’m not sure where you’d be able to get these products. But there are quite a few bargain stores that seem to stock I Love… products (incl. gift sets) from time to time, so don’t ignore those stores. 🙂
Hi there! Today’s post is about I Love…’s Tropical Paradise Bath & Shower Crème and Nourishing Body Butter. I bought these two products a few months ago, and I think now’s the right time to actually use these summery products. And since I’ve been using these two products for a week now, I’m ready to let you know what I think. 🙂
I Love…’s Tropical Paradise Bath & Shower Crème isn’t a shower cream. It’s a shower gel. However, it isn’t too drying which is nice. I like this shower gel mainly because of its fragrance – it’s 95% passion fruit with just a hint of a mix of tropical fruit and coconut milk. Very summery. Very tropical.
I Love…’s Tropical Paradise Nourishing Body Butter smells just as tropical as the shower gel. This body butter is also perfectly suitable for warm summer days because it’s not sticky. But it hydrates my skin well!
I would recommend these I Love… products to everyone. I found these products at my local Poundworld, but I’ve also seen them at Bargain Buys – for £1 each!
I Love…’s Tropical Paradise Bath & Shower Crème is available as 500ml, and
I Love…’s Tropical Paradise Nourishing Body Butter is available as 200ml.
Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon’s That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel. My husband and I call it amazingness in a bottle. 🙂
I’ve been avoiding Treacle Moon products for years. I have nothing against the brand – au contraire! I do think the brand is actually very quirky.
However, I just somehow made the decision to ignore all things Treacle Moon. I guess it was some anti-hoarding impulse that kicked in… 😀
Anyway, now the shower gel is mine, and I’ve given it a try! I think this shower gel is lovely. The vanilla fragrance isn’t a pure vanilla. I think it’s a mix of vanilla and yoghurt with a hint of lemon.
This shower gel smells sweet and refreshing at the same time. And I love the non-drying formula. I’m very happy with this product!
I would recommend this shower gel to everyone! Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml for £3 (Waitrose, Tesco). I paid £2 (save 1/3 promotion).
Hi there! Just last weekI told you that I bought a 3-piece Baylis & Harding gift set. I just couldn’t resist the Donuts theme. Yes, I know I’m weak! 🙂 I’ve already given these products a try, so here’s what I think.
Baylis & Harding’s Beauticology Blueberry Glaze Donut Shower Crème is quite nice. The fragrance is definitely yummy, and the shower cream formula is really gentle. But there’s one issue… the tube has a screw cap which is not very practical…
Baylis & Harding’s Beauticology Vanilla Sugar Donut Body Butter moisturises my skin well. The vanilla sugar donut fragrance is rather faint, but I have to say that it’s very authentic!
Baylis & Harding’s Beauticology Frosted Sprinkles Bath Soak Crystals are a nice treat. I think the Frosted Sprinkles fragrance is inredibly sweet and rather strong, but it smells like the perfect mix of frosting and sprinkles!
All in all I am happy with these fun products. I paid £6 (Asda) for my Baylis & Harding Beauticology Donut set (which, I think, would also make a cute gift). Have you tried these products? If so, please feel free to let me know how you liked them. And thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Boots Extracts products – Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut Body Scrub, Body Butter and Body Wash. These 3 products were part of a large Christmas-themed gift set that contained several products from four different Boots Extracts product lines (Marshmallow & Peppermint, Mango, Vanilla and, obviously, Coconut). Now let’s get straight to the actual review!
The Body Scrub was the first product I tried. Just like all the other Boots Extracts scrubs, this one is quite alright. It could be a little grittier, but it’s still a good product. I also like the coconut fragrance because it’s rather subtle. The Body Wash is really nice. I like the moisturising formula and, again, I’m happy with the subtle coconut fragrance.
The Body Butter is truly great. It’s rich, but it feels light. It’s very nourishing, but it’s not sticky. It makes my skin feel soft and silky, but it doesn’t feel like “product” on my skin. This body butter is subtly scented – which is fantastic because I think the majority of coconut fragrances are just overwhelming. So I think Boots did a great job with this body butter. And, of course, Boots did a great job with the body wash and the body scrub too.
I would recommend these products! Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut is available as 400ml Scrub for £6.50 and 200ml Body Butter for £6. It appears that, at the moment, the shower gel isn’t part of the regular collection. However, if you really want the shower gel, you should keep an eye on special occasion gift sets (Christmas, Mother’s Day etc.).
Hi there! Welcome to the lastest episode of Reducing My Oldies Stash. Today’s guest stars are The Body Shop’s White Musk Breeze limited edition products which have been sitting in my stash for ages. I’ve finally given these products a try, so let me tell you if they’re (still) any good. 🙂
The Body Shop’s White Musk Breeze Shower Gel is alright. It lathers up nicely, but it doesn’t feel drying. I also like the fragrance – it’s white musk and jasmine. The Body Shops’s Body Purée (which I have 2 bottles of) is good too. The fragrance is a little fresher – it’s white musk, jasmine and a mix of refreshing citrus fruits. However, I have to say that I don’t love the purée formula because it feels a little sticky on my skin.
Now onto the fragrances! The Body Shop’s White Musk Breeze Body Spray is a decent all-over body spray. It’s a little lighter and less dense than the EdT. I like it! I’m sure I’ll be able to finish this bottle at some point. The Body Shop’s White Musk Breeze Eau De Toilette (which I have 2 bottles of) is a true white musk fragrance. It starts out fresh but the citrus aroma evaporates quickly.
Now onto the conclusion… I’m impressed that these products didn’t go off. I really, really love preservatives in cosmetics and toiletries! 🙂 OK, here’s the actual conclusion… whilst I like these White Musk Breeze products, the white musk fragrance isn’t my favourite.
So I started to experiment a little. At first it was trial and error, but after a few days I realised that the White Musk Breeze all-over body spray is a great base for sweet vanilla fragrances. I also found that the White Musk Breeze EdT goes well with Body Fantasies’ Pink Grapefruit Fantasy. 🙂
I’m sure I’ll be able to finish the shower gel, the 2 (!) body purées and the body spray. We’ll have to see whether I’ll finish the 2 (!) EdT bottles. Let’s see if I can make an effort to use the EdT on a regular basis. Fingers crossed!
Hi there! It’s been a while since I bought Yves Rocher’s Lemon Basil Refreshing Shower Gel.
But since this shower gel has now been repackaged and reintroduced as part of Yves Rocher’s Plaisirs Nature collection, I thought I should finally try it!
This shower gel contains essential oils of lemon and basil, and it promises to cleanse skin gently and to leave skin smelling delicately perfumed.
Is it good? Yes, I think this shower gel is quite nice. It doesn’t dry out my skin, and the fresh fragrance is perfect for spring and summer. I really enjoy it!
Now that Yves Rocher recycled this fragrance for their Plaisirs Nature collection, they offer several Lemon Basil products: 200ml shower gel, 400ml shower gel, 200ml exfoliating shower gel and 15g bath cube.
Have you tried this product? How did you like it? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!
