Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion. Over the past couple of months I tried a few of their body butters. I think the brand did a great job with their Almond and Aloe Vera body butters. So I decided to give this body butter a try too.

I wanted to love this body butter, but I can’t. It moisturises my skin just as well as the other 2 body butters that I’ve previously tried from this brand. However, the fragrance is a complete mess. It doesn’t smell of cocoa, it doesn’t smell of vanilla. It smells like too much of everything, but it also smells like nothing. What they were thinking?

My husband is now using this body butter as a foot butter, and this appears to be the best use for this product! If you’d still like to give it a try, Beautifully Scrumptious Cocoa & Vanilla Body Butter Fusion is available as as 220ml for about £1 at bargain stores.

Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter which I bought for £1 (Poundland). I’ve previously tried a different body butter from this brand, and now I’m telling you if this almond body butter is any good. 🙂

Whilst I love raw almonds, I don’t really love almond-scented toiletries because most of the time they smell rather funky. So I wasn’t expecting to like this body butter. But… surprise, surprise! The raw almond fragrance in this body butter is very natural and not overpowering. I really like it! I’m also happy that this body butter hydrates my skin well.

Beautifully Scrumptious Almond Body Butter is a nice little body butter! It’s available as 220ml for about £1 at bargain stores. If you’re looking for a new body butter, you should give this one a try!

Empties – September 2018

Hi there! September is over, so it’s time for my September Empties post. Read on if you’d like to know which products I said goodbye to last month. 🙂

1 Nivea Powerfruit Fresh Shower Gel – I didn’t love this shower gel, and I won’t buy it again.

2 Classics Nail Polish Remover – I love this nail polish remover. It does its job, it doesn’t smell too bad, and it’s £1 for 400ml. I have a few back-up bottles.

3 Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner – this is a great conditioner. I will buy it (+ the matching shampoo) again.

4 Essence Black Eyeliner Pencil (x2) – I love Essence’s eyeliner pencils. They’re £1 each, and they’re great. I have no complaints about them. I have several more in my stash (and rota).

5 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream – this is a great night cream. I will buy it again.

6 Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm – I loved this balm. I think I have 1 or 2 more of these in my stash.

7 Anna Sui Eau De Toilette – this is a very enjoyable floral fragrance. It’s all about iris, rose, lilac and powder. It’s very nice!

8 Olay Gentle Hydrating Rich Creamy Cleansing Milk – this is a great make-up remover. I will buy it again, no doubt.

9 Imperial Leather Indulgence Irresistible Body Wash – this is a sensational shower gel. I have a back-up bottle!

10 Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème – I didn’t love the sweet fragrance, and I won’t buy it again.

11 Boots Essentials Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask – this is a great face mask. Very effective! I like to leave it on for about 15 minutes, and I love the deep cleanse it gives my skin. By the way, when I cut up the “empty” tube, there was enough product left for 2 more uses for me and my husband! Yes, I will buy it again.

12 Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I would like to buy it again.

13 Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel – this was an awesome shower scrub. Too bad it’s been discontinued, otherwise I’d love to buy it again.

14 The Body Shop White Musk Breeze Body Purée – now that I’ve finished the 2nd bottle, I’m thinking this was actually a very nice little body moisturiser… but it was a limited edition from a few years ago, so this one’s definitely gone for good!

15 Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin – another great product from Superdrug. Too bad it’s been discontinued.

I also used a few single-use face masks. I’m not counting them because I don’t keep the empty sachets. If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here.

This is everything I emptied in September. I think I’ve done well this month! What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter

Hi there! I’ve got another skin care review for you today. A few weeks ago I picked up this Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter for £1 at Poundland. I’ve never had an aloe vera body butter, so it took me about 3 seconds to decide I had to give this one a try. And now that I’ve been using this product for a few weeks, here’s what I think. 🙂

I’m happy I bought this body butter. It’s not the most innovative product, but it hydrates my skin nicely and it doesn’t feel sticky. The biggest selling point is the aloe vera fragrance. It’s wonderfully fresh and natural. I’m enjoying it very much!

Beautifully Scrumptious Aloe Vera Body Butter is available as 220ml for £1 (give or take a few pence) at bargain stores. If you’re looking for a new body butter, you need to try this!
