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.

Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb. I saw 2 different bath bombs at B&M Bargains for £1 each, and I thought I’d give both of them a try. I already reviewed the other one (blueberry), and I’ve now given this raspberry bath bomb a try.

I liked the blueberry bath bomb, so I had certain expectations for the raspberry one too. I used this bath bomb today, and I like it. The raspberry scent is fresh and fruity (but it could be stronger). I also liked that the bath bomb left my skin feeling nicely hydrated.

If you’re interested, Radox Raspberry Scent Bath Bomb is available as a 100g single-use bath bomb. How much you pay will depend on where you shop!

Westlab Reviving Epsom Salt

Hi there! Today’s post is about these bath salts which I picked up for £2 at B&M Bargains – Westlab Reviving Epsom Salt. These bath salts claim to help relax aching muscles. Simply add 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts to your bath and relax!

I’ve given these scent-free bath salts a try, and I would agree that they help relieve sore muscles after a workout. My husband has tried these bath salts too, and he was just as happy with them as I was. These bath salts will be repurchased, no doubt!

If you’re interested, a 1kg bag of Westlab Reviving Epsom Salt is usually about £6, but they’re also often on a half price deal at the drugstores or the supermarkets. I only paid £2 at my local B&M store.

Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Well-Being Shower Gel With Lavandin

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Well-Being Shower Gel With Lavandin from the Provence Region. I bought this shower gel before Yves Rocher shut down its operations in the UK. I really miss Yves Rocher’s special offers and free gifts! 😢

Onto the product now! This shower gel has a beautiful formula, and it produces the most luxurious lather. Unfortunately, the lavender scent is too strong for my taste, so I can’t enjoy the shower gel as much as I’d love to. I will use it up, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.

Having said this, if you love strong lavender scents in products, this shower gel is definitely worth a try! Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Well-Being Shower Gel With Lavandin is available as 200ml. I’m unsure what I paid but this was a sale item!

Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water. This is a body soap which also contains milk lipids, jasmin flower extract and sweet almond oil.

I’ve been using this body soap for a few days, and I like it a lot! It has a beautiful, classic, soft rose scent; it’s not old-fashioned, but also not wannabe-modern. It’s just perfect!

I also love how cleansing this soap is; this is the perfect product for a post-workout cleanse. This soap gets rid of unpleasant smells – quickly and easily and without the need for double-cleansing. This soap is my new post-workout go-to body cleanser!

I don’t know why it took me so long to pick up this soap. It’s really great, and I know that I’ll buy it again once it’s finished. I would definitely recommend it! Oh, and another amazing thing is the price! I paid 49p for this Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water (Savers). 😍

Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Steam Shower Body Cleanser + Rich Intensive Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 body products I found at Home Bargains – Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Steam Shower Body Cleanser and Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Rich Intensive Body Butter. I’ve given these 2 products a try, and here’s what I think.

Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Steam Shower Body Cleanser is really nice in all aspects. I like the formula – it’s a luxurious gel. I also like how the shower gel cleanses my skin without drying it out, and the fragrance is pleasant too – it’s a dense, dark floral scent which is perfect for this time of year.
baylis-harding-skin-spa-body
Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Rich Intensive Body Butter is not really a body butter but a lotion in a tub. One twitch and you’ll spill it all in a second. Having said that, the body lotion is good. It’s absorbed quickly, it hydrates my skin well, and the floral scent (whilst not as nice as the shower gel) is alright too.

I found these two products at Home Bargains. The 500ml shower gel was £1.99, the 200ml body butter was 99p.

The Battle Of The Purples Part II – Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak VS Sainsbury’s The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak

Hi there! Today’s post is a product comparison, and it’s about Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak and Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak. They look and sound pretty much the same – but they’re not!

Let’s start with Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak! This one was quite a surprise. I bought it as a refill for the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen when hand soap was sold out at the local shops. But this bath soak is too good to be used as a hand soap because it smells way too good! It’s almost an exact copy of Palmolive’s amazing Aroma Moments So Relaxed bath foam, although the fragrance of the Asda bath soak isn’t as rich or as longlasting as the Palmolive one. However, this bath soak really makes me feel relaxed and sleepy. And priced at 75p for a 500ml bottle, this is a total steal! 🤑

Onto Sainsbury’s The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak! From the bottle, this bath soak smells rather sharp and cold (in comparison to Asda’s bath soak). So my immediate reaction was that it could hardly become a favourite. I thought this one might become the next kitchen hand wash refill, but I still wanted to give it a try. And I’m glad I did! Once dissolved in water, this bath soak is actually even nicer than Asda’s. The scent is richer and even more purple! Awesome stuff! This bath soak is available as 500ml for 90p which is super cheap!

Based on my experience, I would recommend both bath soaks! I have a slight preference for Sainsbury’s bath soak. But I will repurchase both of them!
