Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Live + Be Captivsting Pause Whipped Body Cream. Live + Be is a discontinued vegan and cruelty-free product range from Boots. Whilst the line has been discontinued, Boots still has stock, and this body cream is still available as 300ml for £1.75 (I bought it via Boots’ website.)
This body cream is supposed to smell like nutmeg, jasmine, coconut and black sugar – these are the notes listed on the back. I’m not gonna lie, after using a bath foam, face mask, hand cream and body mist with the same fragrance, I don’t want to smell this stuff anymore. The fragrance isn’t the greatest one to begin with. It’s a strange slightly herbal, powdery (almost dusty) and dry scent.
With respect to the formula, this body cream is actually great. Such a shame is doesn’t smell better. My husband has volunteered to use this body cream as a foot cream – and it will serve him well, no doubt. But I’m really glad that I don’t have to use this product; and based on what my nose is telling me, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since the post-Christmas sale started. I’m saying most of the stuff because I always forget a lot… OK, let’s take a look at the goodies!
Boots Skincare Treats The Discovery Collection – this was £10 on Boxing Day. I bought 3 of these. The 2 moisturisers are worth £25 alone! The set would have been great value for full price = £20, but it was the most amazing bargain for half price on Boxing Day!
I bought more face masks – but what else is new? Some half price Disney masks, some £1 masks from B&M Bargains.
The Sanctuary Spa Celebration Hamper – this was £20 on Boxing Day and it had the following goodies:
These look amazing!
And these too!
I bought a few more products from Boots’ discontinued Live + Be range. The cheapest item was £1, the most expensive item was £1.75.
A few more Live + Be products.
I also bought fragrances from M&S. The first 2 were £9.50, the third was £12.50. All of them are repurchases.
I bought a number of different Westlab bath salts, the one above was £2.99 at Boots.
I also bought more Radox bath salts. The one above was £2.25 at Sainsburys.
2 more Radox shower gels – these were about £1.30 (or so) each at Superdrug.
Fragonard Belle De Nuit fragrance – £20 at M&S, the Olay Face Wash was £2.09 at Boots, the the Botanics Face Scrub was 33p (£2.33 plus 200 Advantage points for buying a Botanics product).
I also rescued 2 Dead Sea Natural Mineral Soaps from the clearance bin.
And this is it! Quite a bit, eh? Well, what can I say. I’ll always be a bargain hunter! Thanks for stopping by today! 😊
