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. 😦

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I’ve been using for a few weeks now – Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate. Onto the review!

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream is simply wonderful. I love the fruity, sunny fragrance. It almost makes me forget how cold it’s been for the past few weeks. I also like the gentle formula. Great stuff!

Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel isn’t the most spectacular shower gel, but it is nice. The fragrance isn’t too sweet, it’s more like a red fruit and tea fragrance.

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each.

Wonder Woman Shower Gel, 2 In 1 Shampoo / Conditioner, Roll-On Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Wonder Woman branded products. These products were manufactured by H&A, a UK-based company that makes products for all sorts of different brands – they even made the Pusheen products I snapped up on Boxing Day!

Moving on… here’s what I’m reviewing today – Wonder Woman Shower Gel, Wonder Woman 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, and Wonder Woman Roll-On Eau De Toilette.

The shampoo is quite nice. It lathers up nicely, and it feels clarifying. The lovely sweet rose and powder fragrance is gorgeous! This product has no conditioning qualities, but that’s OK. I’ve already finished one of these shampoos a little while ago – this is my 2nd bottle! 🙂

I’ve finally tried the shower gel as well. It has the same wonderful sweet rose and powder fragrance, and it doesn’t feel drying. I like it very much!

The eau de toilette roll-on is simply awesome! Again, it has the same sweet rose and powder fragrance as the shampoo and the shower gel, and I think the fragrance smells a lot more sophisticated than what you’d expect from such a cheap item. And the roll-on looks great in my cosmetic bag! 🙂

Wonder Woman Shower Gel and 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 100ml in a set. The Eau De Toilette is available as 8ml roll-on. I paid 50p each (clearance). I’ve also seen a full-size Wonder Woman fragrance (same design, same manufacturer) for £14.99 at Superdrug. I think that was a 30ml bottle (but I’m not entirely sure).

Radox Feel Lively & Radox Feel Free

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox body washes – Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively and Radox Scent Touch Feel Free. These body washes promise to leave skin smelling gorgeous for up to 12 hours.

Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively with wild peony and lychee smells very strong. I’d describe the fragrance as a dense floral fragrance. I can’t say whether it’s peony, and I can’t smell any lychee – the fragrance is just way too strong for my liking. I’ll try it a few more times. But if I can’t make friends with this shower gel, I think it may end up in the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen…

I do like Radox Scent Touch Feel Free with green tea and coconut water a lot better. The fragrance is very strong too, but I like the green tea fragrance, so I’m happy to use this body wash.

Bottom line… the scent touch technology really works. The fragrances of these body washes stay on the skin for several hours. If you like to smell perfumey without using perfume, you should give these body washes a try. Radox Scent Touch Feel Lively and Radox Scent Touch Feel Free are available as 200ml. I paid £1.48 each.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Possibility Amber & Lavender Bath and Shower Body Scrub

Possibility Amber Lavender ScrubHi there! Today’s post is about Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub.

This product has been sitting in my stash for quite some time. But I enjoyed the matching shower and bath gel, so I thought it’s time to give this body scrub a try.

I’ve been using this body scrub on and off for over 2 weeks now, and have to say that I really like it!

The formula is very interesting – possibly unique! It’s a transparent gel that feels lightweight and stiff at the same time.

I really like the amber and lavender fragrance. It’s surprisingly elegant, and it reminds me of some of Imperial Leather’s dreamiest shower gels. The exfoliating effect is noticeable but gentle. This product is definitely suitable for daily use.

Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub is available as 200ml. I paid 99p (bargain store – but not sure which one).

Nivea Shower Gels – Waterlily & Oil And Powerfruit Fresh

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Nivea Waterlily & Oil and Nivea Powerfruit Fresh. I haven’t used Nivea products for quite some time, so I thought it’s time to give some of their shower gels another try. 🙂

Nivea Waterlily & Oil is simply wonderful. It smells sweet and fresh, and it doesn’t have that weird and unpleasant algae note that many lotus or water lily scented products have. The oil pearls are pretty awesome too. I really like this one. Awesome stuff, Nivea!
Nivea Shower 2
Nivea Powerfruit Fresh is alright. From the bottle it smells gorgeous. However, the scent isn’t as great once the shower gel hits the skin – it starts to smell a bit like warm plastic. The formula is great. The shower gels feels amazing on the skin. However, because of the fragrance I won’t buy it again.

Nivea Waterlily & Oil and Nivea Powerfruit Fresh are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each (bargain store).
