100% Awesome – Alberto Balsam Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose & Pink Grapefruit. I bought these 2 products quite some time ago when they were on special (£1 each), and I’ve finally managed to try them.

These products are aimed at people with fine or flat hair, and they promise fullness and a healthy look. And guess what, these 2 products are simply awesome! Read on, I’ll tell you more! 🙂

The shampoo feels amazing on my head. It feels clarifying, but it’s  also sensationally soft! The formula is pretty much perfect! The conditioner is fantastic too. It feels very conditioning, and it detangles my hair with ease. It actually feels like a “soft & smooth” conditioner. Brilliant!

I’m also happy that these 2 products make my hair appear fuller. And yes, at the same time my hair feels soft and smooth. Alberto Balsam delivers on its promise again! Oh, one more thing – these two products smell divine. The fragrance is perfectly natural, and it’s the perfect mix of rose and grapefruit. Gorgeous!

To sum it up… Alberto Balsam’s Volume Boost Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose & Pink Grapefruit mop the floor with comparable (yet pricier) offerings from brands like L’Oréal and Pantene. I paid £1 (special offer) each for the 300ml shampoo and 300ml conditioner. Alberto Balsam Blends products are usually £2 each which is still fantastic value. 🙂

NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s The Sunniest Juiciest Tantalising Bright Pink Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve had this shower gel in my stash for some time. It’s almost summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try. And now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’ve fallen in love with it.

Why is this shower gel so amazing? It makes me feel clean and refreshed, but it’s not drying. And the fragrance is… paradise! The grapefruit scent is juicy, fresh, and just so full of live. It’s not a sugary grapefruit fragrance for teenagers. No! It’s the perfect South Florida pink grapefruit fragrance.

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel has been discontinued. However, I hope that NSPA will recycle the formula to give us another limited edition grapefruit shower gel.

Have you tried this shower gel? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy & Japanese Cherry Blossom Perfume Body Sprays

Hi there! If you read my blog regularly, you know I don’t just hoard toiletries and nail polish – I also have a ridiculous stash of fragrances and body mists. And today’s post is about two cheap fragrances I picked up at Superdrug a while ago, Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy and Body Fantasies Japanese Cherry Blossom.

Pink Grapefruit Fantasy is a pleasant body mist. It smells like… summertime in Florida. I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of grapefruit juice and vanilla sugar. And I think this body mist is perfectly suitable for warm summer days. But, whilst I do like this body mist, it’s not my dream grapefruit fragrance.

Japanese Cherry Blossom isn’t a scent I particularly enjoy. In my opinion this body mist is too strong, too heavy and too dense. I can’t even ‘analyse’ the fragrance itself because I just find it overwhelming. And unfortunately it also reminds me of the deodorant my mum used to wear in the eighties. I think if you like floral scents, you might want to try this. But if you too struggle with dense floral fragrances, this one might not be for you. I’ll pass my bottle on to a teenage relative.

Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy and Japanese Cherry Blossom are available as 94ml Perfume Body Spray for £3.99 each at Superdrug (if you’re in the UK). I got these two for £1.99 each (half price offer), so I can’t really complain. 😉
