Dolly’s Mixtures Sweetness & Light Candy Floss Shower Gel & Body Mist

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing two sweet smelling body products – Dolly’s Mixtures Sweetness & Light Candy Floss Shower Gel and Dolly’s Mixtures Sweetness & Light Candy Floss Body Mist.

Dolly’s Mixtures products are exclusive to Asda. The 300ml shower gels and the 100ml body mists are £2 each. Now onto the review!
Dolly Candy Floss
Dolly’s Mixtures Sweetness & Light Candy Floss Shower Gel is quite nice. The candy floss fragrance is spot on, and the shower gel is gentle to the skin.

Dolly’s Mixtures Sweet & Light Candy Floss Body Mist is OK. In the beginning it’s just too strong and it has a smokey/burnt note. However, after a few minutes it does smell like candy floss.

I think these 2 products are awesome fun! I wouldn’t want to smell like candy floss every day, but these sweet smelling products came in handy when I really needed a pick-me-up a few weeks ago. Good stuff!

NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel, NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA shower gels which, I think, sound perfectly delicious – NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the big 500ml shower gels are £3 each. I paid £2 each (special offer). 🙂 Now onto the reviews!

NSPA Vanilla is a warm, smokey vanilla. The fragrance is rather dense and definitely more suitable for the colder seasons. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it. My husband, however, seems to enjoy it very much, so I’ll let him have it.

NSPA Shea Butter smells… cute and cuddly. I can’t describe the fragrance any better, but I love it. It’s gorgeous! If you’re not already in love with this shower gel, you need to have a sniff the next time you shop at Asda.

Have you tried these shower gels? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel, Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about two summer-themed products – NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the fruity body care products (500ml shower gels, 200ml body mists) are usually £3 each. I paid £2 each (2 for £4 promotion). Now onto the review!
NSPA Pineapple
NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel is more like a shower cream. It’s not the most refreshing shower poduct, but it’s not drying which is nice. The fragrance is sweet and exotic – almost like real pineapples. NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist is quite enjoyable as well. The pineapple fragrance isn’t very longlasting, but that’s OK really because this is obviously just a body mist.

All in all, I think these two products are quite reasonable and definitely good value for money. If you’re interested, give these products a sniff the next time you swing by your local Asda store. 🙂

Suitable For Vegans – Original Source Shower Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea, Vanilla & Raspberry, Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 3 shower gels which sound perfect for summer – Original Source Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea, Vanilla & Raspberry, and Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil. These shower gels are also suitable for vegans – they’re approved by the Vegan Society.

You can find Original Source shower gels in most supermarkets and drugstores where the 250ml bottles retail for £2 to £2.30. Or you can pick them up for £1 or less (bargain stores, special offers). Now onto the reviews!

Original Source Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea is very nice. It smells of tea, red fruits and exotic flowers. Despite the ‘red’ fragrance this shower gel is actually refreshing. I think it’s one of the best limited editions Original Source ever did!

Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry sounds great – but it’s not. From the bottle it smells like raspberry ice cream, but as soon as you start to lather it up on your skin, the ice cream fragrance disappears, and the shower gel starts to smell like candle wax. The only good thing about this shower gel is that it doesn’t feel drying. However, since I don’t want to shower with anything that smells like candle wax, this shower gel will end up in the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen…

Original Source Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil is really good. This shower gel is very moisturising (those jojoba oil beads really work), and it smells like boiled cherry sweets. Awesome fun!

Have you tried any of these shower gels, or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading. 🙂

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Dolly’s Mixtures Strawberry Daiquiri ‘Shake It Up’ Shower Gel

Hi there! And welcome to the latest episode of Reducing My Oldies Stash. 🙂 Today I’m reviewing Dolly’s Mixtures Strawberry Daiquiri ‘Shake It Up’ shower gel.

From the bottle this shower gel smells exactly like strawberry daiquiri. I mean it! I can smell strawberry puree, lime juice, ice and booze! Wow!

However, as soon as you lather up the shower gel, it changes from “wow” to a random (and faint) soapy fragrance. I think this is rather disappointing. And I’m saying this as someone who doesn’t even drink alcohol.

I think it’ll probably take me a while to finish this shower gel. I don’t see myself reaching for it more often than once a week…

The brand Dolly’s Mixtures is exclusive to Asda. Dolly’s Mixtures products are usually £2 each. The shower gels are 300ml, the body sprays are 100ml. I paid £1 for this shower gel (half price offer).

If you’d like to try Dolly’s Mixtures shower gels, I would recommend their fantastic Bubble Gum shower gel!

Radox Revive & Uplifting

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox shower gels that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Radox Revive with mandarin & lemongrass and Radox Uplifting with pink grapefruit and basil. Since these two shower gels sounded summery and refreshing, I thought now’s the right time to (finally) give them a try!
Radox Shower 03
Radox Revive (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Revived) with mandarin and lemongrass is quite nice. I would describe the fragrance as a refreshing and tangy citrus fragrance! Whilst I expected a considerably sweeter fragrance, I’m not disappointed. I like the fresh fragrance!

Redox Uplifting (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Uplifted) with pink grapefruit and basil is very nice. The grapefruit note is very authentic whilst (fortunately) the basil note is hardly noticeable. This is a great shower gel. I really enjoy using it!

I know that I’ll buy these 2 Radox shower gels again, and I would recommend them to everyone! Radox shower gels are available as 250ml, and they’re usually around £2 each, but you can find them for £1 each as well (Poundstores, half price promotions, etc.).

Reducing My Oldies Stash – I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie + Refreshing Body Spritzer

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 200mlI 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. 🙂
