Body Fantasies Kissing In The Rain & Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy Fragrance Body Sprays

Hi there! Just recently I managed to finish one of the two Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy body sprays that I’ve had in my stash. So I decided to try two new Body Fantasies body sprays. I ordered these online, so I didn’t know if they were any good. But they were dirt cheap (special offer, £1.98 each) so I just bought them. And now that I’ve given these two body sprays a try, let me tell you more…

Body Fantasies Kissing In The Rain is afwul. It’s not a fragrance – it’s a smell! And I would describe the smell as a mix of cheap hairspray, bed head, wet dog and sweat. Truly awful.

Body Fantasies Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy isn’t much better. This fragrance is definitely ‘pink’, but it’s also sour. No, it’s not fresh, tangy or crisp. It smells sour. And that’s rather unpleasant…

Body Fantasies Kissing In The Rain and Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy are available as 94ml Perfume Body Spray for £3.99 each at Superdrug (if you’re in the UK). I got these two for £1.98 each (half price offer). However, I wish I had just ignored the half price offer! 😀

NSPA Mango Fragrance Body Mist, NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.

NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂

NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!

NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer

I Love... Cherry Almond SparkleHi there! If you read my blog, you know I’ve been buying all things I Love… lately. I bought quite a few body mists (and other products) – for £1 each from Poundland! Here’s the haul post.

I thought I was very lucky that I Love…’s 2015 Christmas collection hit the bargain stores. I already had the shower gel and the body butter. So I was happy to try the I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer as well.

However, after trying the body mist, I have to say it’s not for me. Whilst the shower gel and body butter do smell like cherry bakewell tarts, the body mist smells like a mix of almonds and baked bread – without the tiniest hint of cherries.

And when the fragrance dries down, it leaves behind a bread-like scent on my skin and my clothes. I may be too critical, but I don’t like the smell or the taste of bread, so I won’t be using this body mist again. But the product won’t be wasted. It’s going in my beauty box for the women’s shelter. Hopefully someone else will like this body mist a lot more.

If you would like to try I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer, it’s £2.99 at Superdrug’s or onlline. Or swing by your local Poundland where you might find it for £1.

NSPA Fresh Sweet Raspberry Shower & Bath Gel, Rich Body Butter, Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been shopping for toiletries again and I found an interesting looking spa-themed body care collection at Asda: NSPA. They do shower and bath gels, body scrubs, body butters and body mists with different scents (mango, raspberry, vanilla, coconut, passion fruit, etc.).

The products are £3 each, but they had a 3 for £4 offer so I opted for three products from the raspberry collection: NSPA Fresh Sweet Raspberry Shower & Bath Gel, Rich Body Butter and Fragrance Body Mist.
NSPA Raspberry
Let me start with the Shower & Bath Gel. If you love the scent and flavour of raspberries, this is a shower gel you should try. The raspberry scent is sweet and quite intense – almost like the real thing. Well done NSPA and Asda! A big plus: You’ll get a 500 ml bottle for £3 which is great value.

Up next is the Rich Body Butter: I’m enjoying this body butter very much at the moment. It’s indeed rich and I can see this one becoming a winter favourite because it really takes care of dry skin. This sweetly-scented raspberry body butter is priced at £3 for a 200 ml tub.

The Fragrance Body Mist is almost literally the icing on the cake. If you want to smell of summery and sweet raspberries, spray this fragrance all over your body. Whilst the raspberry body mist won’t last all day, it really helps if you moisturise your skin with the matching body butter first. In any event, £3 get you a 200 ml bottle which means you’ll get plenty of product to douse yourself in. Incredible value!

I’m very pleased with NSPA‘s offerings and would recommend them if you love raspberry-scented body care products. The fruity products are £3 each , but at the moment most full-size NSPA products are £1.97 only at Asda (I just checked online).
