Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Whipped Body Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Whipped Body Cream. Live + Be is a vegan & cruelty-free collection which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

Woodland Whisper is, in my opinion, the stand-out fragrance of the entire collection. I already love the shower gel and the body mist, so trying the matching body cream was a no-brainer.

Let’s start with the fragrance – Woodland Whisper has the following notes – fennel, coriander, cardamom and charcoal. I don’t think it smells like any of these notes (or the sum of these notes), but I would describe the fragrance as warm, sweet and woody. It’s beautiful!

The formula of this whipped body cream is just as lovely as its scent. The cream is rich, but it’s easy to spread and it sinks right into the skin. It moisturises my skin well, it feels velvety on the skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all. It’s perfect!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product! Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Whipped Body Cream is available as 300ml for £1.75. What a bargain!

HAUL! New Products From Boots, No 7, Sanctuary Spa, Marks & Spencer, Fragonard, Olay, Westlab, Radox, Dead Sea & More

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! 😊
