Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest, Palmolive Welcome to Japanese Garden

Hi there! Today’s post is about these new Palmolive shower gels that I picked up at my local Superdrug store – Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden. These shower gels are limited editions. And to find out whether I should stock up, I gave them a try right away. 🙂

Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest is a super lovely shower gel. It smells warm and tropical with a touch of cocoa (maybe sandalwood as well). It’s not a pineapple shower gel at all – I doubt there’s even a hint of pineapple fragrance in it. However, I’m not unhappy because this shower gel is gorgeous!

Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden is a pure cherry blossom shower gel. I’m used to cherry blossom and vanilla fragrances, and because of this I think this shower gel is missing something. However, if you love the smell of pure cherry blossoms (I mean, who doesn’t?), you should give this shower gel a try. It’s very nice, I promise!

I think Palmolive did a great job with these shower gels. The fragrances are beautiful, and the creamy formula is great for dry skin. Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

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. 😉
