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.

Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Shower Gel Pomegranate & Grapefruit, Cherry & Almond

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Superdrug own-brand shower gels I bought a while ago. I forgot about them, but my continuing quest to use up all the toiletries I’ve stored outside the bathroom (don’t ask) led me to these two shower gels. Meet Superdrug Pomegranate & Grapefruit and Cherry & Almond.

Let me start with the bets bits: All of Superdrug’s products are BUAV-approved and carry the Leaping Bunny logo. These two shower gels are suitable for vegans and they’re cruelty-free! And they’re only 99p each!
2015 Superdrug Pomegranate PLUS Cherry Almond
When Superdrug turned 50, there were all kinds of ‘pink’ products to celebrate the occasion. Even big brands like Olay, Barry M and Sleek did a few exclusive editions – and Superdrug itself did the same. One of Superdrug’s limited edition anniversary products is this Sweet Sixties Pomegranate & Grapefruit shower gel. The fragrance of this shower gel isn’t unpleasant, but it’s a non-descript fruity something that’s quite forgettable. I’ll squeeze it into the hand soap dispenser.

Superdrug Cherry & Almond is a lovely shower gel. It smells of sweet and sunny cherries with a touch of almond. It’s absolutely delicious! It’s no replacement for the limited edition I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle. This is because Superdrug’s shower gel focuses more on fruity cherries. And the I Love… cherry & almond products smell sweeter and more cake-like. However, this Superdrug shower gel is really yummy and I’ll buy it again.
