Hi there! Today’s post is about the 3 body lotions from the Winter Woodland Christmas set. I’ve already reviewed the 3 Winter Woodland shower gels, so let me tell you more about the body lotions. Here they are – Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Frosty Delight, Winter Snow and Peppermint Kiss.
First of all, I have to say that I like the formula of these body lotions. They’re rather light, but they’re not runny. They’re not sticky and they’re great if you’re in a hurry. 🙂 Now let’s get to their scents!
Frosty Delight smells like frozen berries. I don’t love the fragrance, but I think it’s alright. I’ll definitely continue to use this body lotion. Winter Snow smells like apple tea. I like it! 🙂
Peppermint Kiss is 100% peppermint. The strong peppermint fragrance is just overwhelming. I don’t like toiletries with a strong peppermint fragrance, so I gave this one away. If you want your skin to smell like peppermint, this is the perfect body lotion for you.
Whilst I’ve now reviewed the Winter Woodland shower gels and body lotions, I still have to try the Winter Woodland body mists. Like I said in yesterday’s post, I got my Winter Woodland sets from Poundstretcher. Set 1 contains 5 body mists, and set 2 contains 3 shower gels and 3 body lotions (120ml each). So if you’d like to try these products and there’s a Poundstretcher near you, you know what to do! 😀

Hi there! Today’s post is about a gift set I got my hands on during last year’s post-Chistmas sales. The gift set in question contained Givenchy’s Ange ou Démon Le Secret EdP (50ml), and the matching shower gel and body lotion (75ml).
The fragrance contains the following notes: lemon, cranberry and tea (top notes), jasmine, peony and waterlily (heart notes), and patchouli and woody notes (base notes). Cool. Now let’s get to the actual product review. 🙂
The Delicate Bath Gel is quite nice. I’m using it as a shower gel (What difference does it make?). The fragrance is lovely and the formula is non-drying. I love it. The Silky Body Veil is very nice. It goes on like a light moisturiser, but it feels very silky. Again, the fragrance is nice – and actually quite strong!
OK, so what’s the fragrance like? Givenchy Ange ou Démon Le Secret is lovely. It smells like a mix of jasmine tea and lemon. It’s fresh, but feminine. It’s modern and youthful, but it’s not one of those sickly sweet candy fragrances. It’s suitable for the office, but also for a night out.
The only thing that’s not great is that it’s not a very long-lastig fragrance. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing (well, not for me) because I will be able to finish this one soon. I think I have about 10ml left in the bottle. And whilst I don’t think I’ll finish the fragrance this month, I’m confident it’ll be gone by the end of January.
