Hi there! If you’ve read my haul post from a while ago, you might remember that I bought a few body mists. OK, you probably don’t remember that. 🙂
Anyway, one of the body mists I found at my local Home Bargains store was this 100ml Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist. And it was 49p only! What a bargain!
On the back of the bottle it says this body mist is a ‘fruity fragrance cocktail of soft white peach combined with velvety vanilla’. Sounds good.
And now I’ve finally gotten around to actually try this body mist, and I’ve reached my verdict.
I think this body mist smells like peach skin. It’s nice, but not very special. And I can’t smell any vanilla.
I also think this fragrance is pretty much the same as Yves Rocher’s Plasirs Nature Yellow Peach fragrance – but this one is considerably cheaper.
The peach fragrance doesn’t last very long on my skin, but I’m OK with that because it’s just a body mist and not an eau de parfum. 🙂
So whilst this body mist is nice, I don’t think I’ll wear it much. I might use it as a scarf spray, or I might pass it on to a teenage relative.
Dolly’s Mixtures products are made in the UK and they’re exclusive to Asda (well, the soon-to-be discontinued stock seems to have been shipped off to Home Bargains).
Dolly’s Mixtures products are made by the same company that makes all those wonderful NSPA products, and – unless there’s a special offer – Dolly’s Mixtures products are usually £2 each.

Hi there! If you read my blog, and if you remember this post – you know I’d like to get away from being a beauty and toiletries hoarder. However, I simply can’t resist a bargain when I see one. Now let’s have a look at the new stuff that’s going to be stashed away somewhere at my place…
I found these NSPA shower gels at Home Bargains – for 79p each. These are 500ml and they’re normally £3 at Asda. I think these ones are going to be discontinued. 😦 By the way, all NSPA products are made in the UK.
Home Bargains also had a few nice and cheap body mists. From left to right: Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Argan & Marula – 150ml, Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple – 150ml, Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist – 100ml, NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Body Mist – 200ml.
The Dolly’s Mixtures Body Mist was 49p (usually £2 at Asda), the other three body mists were 79p each. I’ve never seen the brand Anovia anywhere before today, so I can’t comment on what their products cost elsewhere, but the NSPA fragrances are usually £3 at Asda. Oh, and all these body mists were made in the UK!
Up next we’ve got Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine shampoo & conditioner. They’re 300ml each and they were £1 each (special offer) at Asda. The next item is NSPA’s Cherry Body Scrub – also from Home Bargains. The 225ml scrub set me back 79p (instead of £3 at Asda). The eyeshadow brush is from Poundworld – of course it was £1.
And here’s the actual beauty stuff – 2 Barry M eyeshadows (£1 for the pack of 2), 2 Sally Hansen nail polishes, 2 Max Factor eyeshadows, 2 Max Factor nail polishes, 2 L’Oréal nail polishes and 1 Rimmel nail polish which is a backup. Some of these products came from Poundland, some from Poundworld. All in all I paid £10 in total for all these eyeshadows and nail polishes.
Yes, I stocked up on stuff I didn’t really need. But everything was so cheap. In fact I only paid £19.02 for everything! I live for bargains, you know. Bargain hunting might actually be ma raison d’être. 🙂 Have you done any shopping recently? Any hauls you’d like to tell me about? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for reading!
