Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter & Fragrance Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 body products which I picked up at Poundland – Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter and Fragrance Mist. I’ve been using these products on and off since mid-January, and here’s what I think.

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter is very nice! Whilst it feels a bit sticky (it’s not too bad, I promise), I am not complaining because this body butter feels deeply nourishing. It also takes a minute or two to absorb, but I don’t mind because the result is beautiful skin that feels super soft and well hydrated. This is a great body butter!

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Fragrance Mist promises to refresh and hydrate skin. I’m happy to confirm that it keeps its promise. The fragrance mist smells and feels very refreshing. I also like to spray it down my back because it’s hydrating.

What else? The fragrance of these 2 products is definitely a lot more raspberry than grapefruit. I would have preferred it the other way around, but I do like the fresh raspberry fragrance of these products, so I have no reason to be unhappy. Based on my experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these products.

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter is available as 250ml. Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Fragrance Mist is available as 100ml. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter. I’ve already gone through a tub of the matching body scrub, so I thought I should finally give the body butter a try!

I’ve been using this body butter on and off for almost 3 weeks now, and I must say that I really like it. This body butter contains pro-vitamin B5, vitamins C and E, and natural extracts, and it makes my skin feel soft and nourished. Great stuff!

I also like the authentic mango & papaya fragrance. It’s quite strong when you open the tub, but it’s perfectly fine once it hits the skin. I would definitely recommend this body butter. And I’m pretty sure it will be one of my favourite moisturisers this summer!

Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter is available as 200ml for £3.99. I paid £1.99 (half price offer). This body butter is suitable for vegans and it’s certified cruelty-free – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo.

Flower Pharm Orange Flower Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Flower Pharm’s Orange Flower Body Butter. I got my hands on several tubs when they were 49p each at Superdrug. Yes, I mean it! 49p per 300ml tub!

Superdrug no longer sells this brand, but I’ve seen Flower Pharm products at Home Bargains (99p to £1.99) and TK Maxx (where this body butter is £2.99). I’ve also seen Flower Pharm gift sets at Asda and Tesco. And now let’s get to the actual product review! 🙂
flower-pharm-orange-flower
I think this body butter is fantastic. It goes on like a light moisturiser, but it’s really rich and hydrating. Despite this, it’s not sticky at all. Yes, I think the formula is perfect! I also love the fragrance. It’s very authentic, and I’d describe it as a dense and warm Mediterranean orange flower fragrance. It smells very ‘high end’. It’s gorgeous!

Looking at the ingredients, this body butter contains coconut oil (it’s the second ingredient listed – after ‘aqua’) and lots of natural extracts (neroli, bitter orange, bergamot, etc). I think this is quite impressive! And I’ve also noticed that Flower Pharm products are made in the UK. Awesome stuff!

I would recommend this body butter in an instant. The formula is perfect and the fragrance is simply gorgeous. And if you consider the low price, this body butter is a total steal!

Have you tried this body butter or any other Flower Pharm products? How did you like them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

I Love… Strawberries & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Crème, Nourishing Body Butter and Refreshing Body Spritzer

Hi there! I got myself a few more I Love… products. These were on sale for half price (£1.49) because I Love… is currently giving it’s entire collection a makeover. I think the line didn’t need updating – not yet. That’s because I Love… manages to capture the scents of fruits and sweets perfectly – which is something that some high street brands struggle with. But I don’t want to complain about ‘other brands’. I’d rather tell you what I Love’s… Strawberries & Cream collection is like! 🙂
I Love Strawberries and Cream
I Love… Strawberries & Cream Bath and Shower Cream (available as 500ml) is a gentle bath and shower product. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturising, but it’s certainly not drying. The strawberries & cream fragrance is very sweet!

I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Butter (available as 200ml) is a reasonable moisturiser. It’s not as thick as many other comparable body butters, so it’s a bit easier to apply. But it isn’t as rich as those thick body butters. Still, it’s definitely a good product! The strawberries & cream scent is sweet, intense and longlasting.

I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Spritzer (available as 100ml) really is the cat’s whiskers – if you’re into strawberry-scented body sprays. On its own this body spritzer isn’t that longlasting (which is OK). But if you spray it on after you’ve used the matching body butter, you’ll be surrounded by the sweet aromas of strawberries & cream for hours – probably even half a day. I think that’s fairly impressive!

I’m not the biggest fan of super sweet scents in toiletries. So I’ll be giving the body spritzer and the bath and shower cream away. I’ll use up the body butter myself (my fingers have been in the tub, so I wouldn’t want to give this one away). But my teenage relative will surely be happy to take the other two products off my hands.

Saying this, if you’re a fan of strawberry-scented toiletries, I would definitely recommend this I Love… collection. The strawberries & cream fragrance is sweet, intense and much more authentic than some high street brands’ (more expensive) strawberry-scented offerings.

The I Love… Strawberries & Cream product line has been updated – the design of the packaging has changed and some products might be replaced. However, the price seems to have remained the same – most I Love… products are still £2.99.

Vegan & Cruelty-Free Gift Idea – Superdrug Naturals Body Butter Collection – Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom, Cocoa Butter & Vanilla, Cherry & Macadamia

Hi there! A few days ago one of my work mates told me she was struggling to find a present for her cousin’s birthday. She said she doesn’t want to spend a lot of money because the two of them aren’t that close. But it’s not like they don’t like each other, so she doesn’t want to give her cousin a rubbish birthday present – or none at all.

I had an idea right away. 🙂 And I know many people struggle to find a cheap but nice present every once in a while. So I thought I’d share my gift idea with you! I suggested my work mate get a small wicker basket (or something similar) and fill it with a few nice products, like Superdrug’s Naturals body butters. My work mate loved the idea. She told me she bought these body butters and she found a little gift basket in the post-Easter clearance sale at a local store. Job done!
Superdrug Body Butters
Now, what’s so special about this kind of present? Well, nothing really. But I think the idea of getting a beauty hamper (well, almost) as a birthday present is quite nice. And products like body butters are always useful because every woman moisturises her skin (at least once in a while).

The reason I suggested these body butters is because they’re cheap (£3.99 each, but they’re on special – BOGOF or half price – almost all the time). And these body butters are really good! They contain vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 and the formula is great (soft, easy to apply, non-sticky). The body butters carry the Leaping Bunny logo, so the products are cruelty-free and suitable for vegans! Oh, and the fragrances are lovely too!
Superdrug Lotus Flower Cherry Blossom
Superdrug Lotus Flower & Cherry Blossom Body Butter smells heavenly. It bursts with freshness and sweetness – the perfect combination of lotus and cherry blossoms. Beautiful!
Superdrug Cocoa Vanilla
Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter smells lovely and sweet, but it’s no surprise since it contains cocoa butter and vanilla. The scent leans towards vanilla, but I don’t mind because it reminds me of vanilla milk.
Superdrug Cherry Macadamia
Superdrug Cherry & Macadamia Body Butter is absolutely gorgeous. Its scent is sweet and quite strong, but it’s very natural and yummy. I think this body butter smells like cherry yoghurt on my skin!

So, next time you have to get a female relative, friend or co-worker a cheap but nice gift, why not just buy a basket and fill it with lovely products?! I hope you found this post helpful. Feel free to share your ideas for a cheap and cheerful gift in the comments. 🙂

Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product which, unfortunately, has been discontinued. It’s this lovely Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Butter. I’ve seen different products from this brand in TK Maxx (about £3) and Home Bargains (99p to £1.99) recently, so if you fancy trying this body butter, you should swing by your local discount stores. But before you rush out, let me tell you what this product’s actually like. 🙂
Flower Pharm Wild Rose
I think it’s super easy to rub this body butter into my skin. The formula is lovely, the butter melts into my skin and it’s not too sticky. Well done, Flower Pharm! The fragrance is beautiful and charmingly old-fashioned – just like wild roses!

I checked the ingredients and this body butter appears to contain more quality ingredients than other comparable products. So instead of mineral oil and the likes, this body butter contains lots of coconut oil (it’s the second ingredient listed – after water), and it contains real rosa damascena (Damascus rose) flower water!

I’ve only used this body butter for a few days, but it seems to have made a difference already. My skin feels very soft and silky. And my semi-permanent eczema patch on my shin isn’t half as itchy as usual.

I think Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose Butter is absolutely fantastic, so I can’t understand why the entire line has been discontinued. Seriously, what were they thinking? I’ll definitely buy a few more tubs from my local Home Bargains store this weekend!

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I’ve done all my sale shopping, so I went to Poundland yesterday. And I found this I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Body Butter – for £1! I just started to use the Cherry Almond Sparkle body wash a few days ago. So I was very happy to find the matching body butter for such a bargain price.
I Love Cherry Almond Body Butter
I think this body butter is a really nice moisturiser. It makes my skin feel soft and it’s not sticky. And just like the shower gel this body butter smells like cherry bakewell tarts. It’s absolutely delicious and very suitable for this time of year. What’s not to love?

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle is available as 250ml and 500ml Bath & Shower Crème, 200ml Body Butter and 100ml Body Spritzer. I don’t know how much the 250 ml Bath & Shower Crème is, but the other three products are £2.99 each – online and at Superdrug’s. Or if you’re looking for a bargain, try Poundland and the likes. 😉
