Reducing My Oldies Stash – Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel & Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I picked up for £1 each. And here they are!

Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel has a true orange flower fragrance. I’m enjoying it very much. This shower gel seems to have low SLS. It doesn’t lather up very well. If you like low SLS shower gels, you should consider giving this one a try. I found this large 400ml shower gel at Home Bargains (clearance).

Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel is good but not great. The shower gel is gentle enough, and it smells citrusy, but I doubt this is anyone’s favourite fragrance. This shower gel is available as 300ml (Tesco).

I will continue to use both shower gels. I’d pick up the Kirstie Allsopp shower gel again, but I’m not repurchasing this Calcot Manor shower gel.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé. This product contains chamomile, sweet fig and vitamin E, and it promises to soothe and to hydrate skin. I’ve been using this product for about a week now, and here’s what I think.

This body cream was a nice surprise! It has a gorgeous, fresh fragrance, and I love the rich and nourishing formula. It leaves my skin feeling super soft – even after a long day. Upon application, the body cream is a little sticky, but it only takes 2 minutes for the skin to absorb it.

I’m very happy with this product! If you’re interested, Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé is available as 250ml at Tesco.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Calcot Manor’s The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter. This body butter claims to “melt effortlessly into skin” and to “leave a gorgeous, scented glow”. A quick scan of the ingredients revealed that this body butter contains quite a few natural ingredients – i.e. sunflower seed oil, bitter orange flower extract, fig extract, green tea leaf extract, rose flower extract, papaya fruit extract, etc… This sounds promising! Now let me tell you if this body butter is any good!
calcot-manor-rich-body-butter
I think this body butter is very hydrating. It feels rich – but it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I like it! However, I don’t think my skin looks any different. There’s definitely no glow. In addition, this body butter doesn’t smell gorgeous at all. I can detect a faint lemony fragrance – and that’s all there is.

Would I recommend this body butter? Yes and no. I will finish this body butter, but I wouldn’t repurchase it. And if you want a lovely smelling body butter, keep looking! However, if you want a rich (yet non-sticky) body butter, give this one a sniff. If you’re OK with the fragrance, you might be happy with this product.

Calcot Manor’s The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter is available as 250ml. Prices vary greatly – depending on where you shop. I paid 99p for this product (bargain store), but I’ve also found an online shop that sells this body butter for just under £10. So make sure you compare prices online before you buy!
