Treacle Moon Pomegranate & Water Lily Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Treacle Moon Pomegranate & Water Lily Shower & Bath Gel. I bought this one by accident. When I ordered it online along with my groceries, Waitrose (or was it Tesco?) displayed another shower gel (I don’t remember exactly, but something yellow) as the limited edition on their website, but they delivered this one instead.

Anyhoo, I have now given this shower gel a try, and I can safely say that I don’t like it at all. The water lily scent is nauseating. And it’s so strong! I can’t use this stuff. I’ll ask my neighbour if she wants this shower gel, and if not, I’ll bin it.

This is just my opinion, and if you’re interested, Treacle Moon Pomegranate & Water Lily Shower & Bath Gel available as 500ml for £3. I spent £2 (I thought I’m snapping up a bargain on a Save 1/3 offer).

Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk, Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower products I’m using at the moment – Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk and Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk.

Let’s start with Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk! This one is really nice! I would have preferred the banana scent to be a little less green, but it’s still a cute scent. The best bit is the formula though. It really is a moisturising shower milk. Tremendous stuff!

Onto Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk! This one is super moisturising too! Very impressive! The sweet apple and vanilla fragrance is very nice too – it’s a bit faint though. Still, this is a great little shower milk, and I’m enjoying it very much.

If you’re interested, Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk and Original Source Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk Moisturising Shower Milk are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each (at one of the bargain stores).

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel, Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel. According the manufacturer, these shower gels are 97% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. 😍

Let’s start with Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel! Wow, what a wonderful surprise! This shower gel is simply amazing. It has a subtle lemony, soapy and bath-salty scent. Lovely! The formula is fantastic too. It feels cleansing but not drying, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and balanced. What’s not to love?

Onto Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel! Whilst this shower gel is nice too, I didn’t like that it hardly smells of anything. If you prefer shower gels which are almost scent-free, this is one to try as it’s cleansing but also gentle on the skin.

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel are available as 400ml for £2.99. I paid £1.99 each (Save 1/3 offer at Boots).

Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Body Wash With Plum & Sakura Blossom Scent, Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash With Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 creamy shower gels – Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Body Wash With Plum & Sakura Blossom Scent and Dove Go Fresh Revive With Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent. Let’s get to the reviews!

Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Body Wash With Plum & Sakura Blossom Scent is not great. The shower gel doesn’t feel very cleansing. Definitely only for when you haven’t broken a sweat. Also, the fragrance is simply awful. It’s a sweet mess… what were they thinking?! I had this shower gel before and didn’t like it. No idea why I bought it again – what was I thinking?! This shower gel will now be squeezed into our hand wash dispenser in the kitchen.

Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash With Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent is nicer but I’m not blown away. Overall, the scent is nice and fruity, but it also has that borderline annoying Dove cream aroma mixed in. I aim to finish this one as a shower gel – but it will depend on how quickly I grow tired of it. On another notes, I found this shower gel to be drying. It’s supposed to be gentle, but it really isn’t. 30 minutes after the shower my skin felt tight and dry.

I won’t buy them again, but if you’re interested, Dove Body Washes are available as 225ml for about £2.50. I bought mine when they were half price at my local Asda store.

Westlab Sleep Epsom & Dead Sea Salts With Lavender & Jasmine

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Sleep Epsom & Dead Sea Salts With Lavender & Jasmine (which also contain valerian root extract and ylang ylang flower oil) which I picked up at Boots for half price.

These bath salts promise to encourage a restful night’s sleep. Simply dissolve 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts in your bath and relax!

I’ve given these bath salts a try, and I think they’re very good. They dissolved fully without leaving any bits behind. The lavender scent is strong and incrediby natural, and I actually felt sleepy after the bath! My husband has used these bath salts too, and he agrees with me.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these bath salts. Westlab Sleep Epsom & Dead Sea Salts With Lavender & Jasmine are available as 1kg for about £5.99 but they’re often on special. I paid £2.99 (half price offer at Boots).

Radox “Shell Yeah” Sea Mineral Scent Shower Gel, Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I started to use in August – Radox “Shell Yeah” Sea Mineral Scent Shower Gel and Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel.

Radox “Shell Yeah” Sea Mineral Scent Shower Gel is wonderful! It’s exactly what a sea mineral scent shower gel should smell like – blue and refreshing with a pinch of salt. The formula is gentle on the skin. Great stuff! My husband likes this shower gel a lot too, and we’re going through it rather quickly.

Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel is another nice surprise. This shower gel smells absolutely delicious! It has the cutest vanilla and white chocolate fragrance I can imagine. And I love that the fragrance lingers in the bathroom for hours. I’m enjoying this shower gel so much!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these amazing shower gels! Radox “Shell Yeah” Sea Mineral Scent Shower Gel and Radox “Donut Mind If I Do” Vanilla Bean & White Chocolate Scent Shower Gel are available as 400ml each for about £2.49. Superdrug ran a Buy One Get One Free promotion on these recently – maybe the promotion is still on?

Revisiting Old Favourites – Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual, Absolute Relax

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 of my all-time favourite shower gels – Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual and Absolute Relax.

Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic with tangerine and lemongrass is one of the most amazing green shower gels ever. It’s refreshing, but also sweet and warm at the same time. It smells like a summer holiday in Italy. 11 stars!

Palmolive Aroma Therapy Sensual with Moroccan rose and ginseng is another incredible shower gel. It has a beautiful, warm, rich – yet transparent – rosey fragrance. I think “Sensual” is the perfect name for this shower gel.

Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax with ylang ylang and iris is the ultimate purple shower gel. It smells like the perfect mix of velvety leaves and white tea. It’s simply stunning!

My husband loves all of these shower gels too. So whenever I start using any one of these, he puts his man shower gel aside and “helps me” finish the Palmolive one! 😁

If you’re interested, Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual and Absolute Relax are available as 250ml each. The first 2 have been discontinued, but can still be found online. The third one is fortunately still available in drugstores and supermarkets. I hope that it’ll be around forever, and that the other ones will be reintroduced at some point so I can stock up!

Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! Today’s post is about these Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang.

These bath salts are made with 100% pure sea salt and scented with what Radox calls its “DreamScentz fragrance” which, according to Radox, improves sleep quality. For one bath, you’re supposed to use about 2-3 handfuls (or 4-5 for an extra intense mineral experience) of these bath salts.

I already finished the entire pouch – with the help of my husband, who also used these bath salts once or twice. And I’m happy to report that I (well, we) found these bath salts very nice. They make for a very relaxing bath, and the fragrance is very “purple” – it’s a strong, powdery lavender and ylang ylang fragrance. Really good stuff!

These bath salts will be a regular purchase from now. If you’re interested, Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang are available as 900g. I paid £2.25 (Sainsburys).

Soap & Glory Clean On Me, Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life

Hi there! Today’s post is about Soap & Glory Clean On Me and Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life. These products were part of a big Soap & Glory gift set which I picked up for half price (Boxing Day sale).

Soap & Glory Clean On Me is an OK shower gel. The creamy formula is nice, and if you like the girly Soap & Glory fragrance, this product is probably right up your alley. However, the pump is very annoying. I didn’t count, but I think it took about 20 pumps for half a handful of shower gel.

Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life is a really good body scrub. I like how effective it is! What a nice surprise! I’m not the biggest fan of the pink scent, but this is a great product in every other way. My favourite Soap & Glory product so far!

If you’re interested, Soap & Glory Clean On Me is available as 500ml for £6.50. Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life is available as 200ml for £7.

Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak, Sanctuary Spa Ultra Rich Wet Skin Moisture Miracle

Hi there! Today’s post is about Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak and Sanctuary Spa Ultra Rich Wet Skin Moisture Miracle. These are travel sizes which were part of a gift set I bought for myself.

Alrighty, let’s start with Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak. The 75ml bottle is sufficient for 1 bath. I took a cool bath the other day, and I enjoyed it very much. I loved the foam and the bubbles, the gorgeous Sanctuary Spa fragrance, and I’m happy that the product didn’t dry out my skin. I would definitely buy the full size (on a 3 for 2 special, of course).

Sanctuary Spa Ultra Rich Wet Skin Moisture Miracle is meant to be used as an in-shower moisturiser. Take your shower as usual, then turn off the water, then apply the product all over your body while the skin is still wet. Then towel your skin dry as usual.

I think this product is really good. I’ve used it about 9 or 10 times now, and I’d say there’s enough product left in the 50ml tube for another 5 uses. It’s not as nourishing as an actual body lotion or body butter, but if you don’t have much time, this stuff is really helpful. Also, the lovely Sanctuary Spa fragrance is an added bonus.

Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak is available as 500ml for £12. Sanctuary Spa Ultra Rich Wet Skin Moisture Miracle is available as 200ml for £10. Boots often runs promotions on the Sanctuary Spa line. It’s 25% on most Sanctuary Spa products right now. Also, on the back of the bottles, it says that the Sanctuary Spa products are now vegan-friendly.
