Hi 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.

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!
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.
