Never Again – The Ultimate Beauty Duds – Part 3

Hi there! Welcome to Part 3 of the Ultimate Beauty Duds. I’ve already done parts 1 and 2, and these posts were well received. So her’s part 3! 🙂

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

This Neutrogena moisturiser made my skin feel terribly dry. But Olay saved the day (and my skin).

Dolly’s Mixtures Rainbow Sherbet & Strawberry Daiquiri

These 2 Dolly’s Mixtutes shower gels were disappointing. The fragrances are best described as fizzy plastic and random soapy nothingness.

Simple Pleasures Winter Woodland Body Mists
simple-pleasures-winter-woodland-set-1
The ultimate cheap body mist collection. These are the kind of body sprays you give to a young girl to experiment with – if you want her to dislike fragrances…

I Love… Chocolates & Orange Bath & Shower Crème, Refreshing Body Spritzer

I like quite a few I Love… toiletries, but the Chocolates & Oranges products smell like cheap dish soap. Yikes!

Paperchase Cherry, Strawberry & Blackcurrant Lip Balms

These Paperchase lip balms tasted like plastic. I binned them a long time ago.

I Love… Chocolate Truffle Bath Fizzer & Yves Rocher Cranberry Cooling Effect Mask

I Love…’s Chocolate Truffle products are excellent. However, there’s one stinker – the Bath Fizzer! It smells like cardboard with the faintest hint of cheap chocolate. Not pleasant at all.

Yves Rocher’s Cranberry Cooling Effect mask is pretty useless. It doesn’t do anything at all. This is, without doubt, one of Yves Rocher’s most disappointing products.

Accessorize Paradise Eyeshadow Palette
Accessorize Paradise 01
I think the Paradise palette is extremely pretty. But of 32 eyeshadows, 16 are so poorly pigmented that they’re essentially useless. Check out my original post which includes swatches of all 32 eyeshadows – you’ll be disappoited, no doubt.

This was part 3 of The Ultimate Beauty Duds! Whilst I’m not saying that no one could ever like any of these products (some of them are still around), I found these products to be rubbish. But if you do like any of these products, that’s good for you.

Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Dolly’s Mixtures Strawberry Daiquiri ‘Shake It Up’ Shower Gel

Hi there! And welcome to the latest episode of Reducing My Oldies Stash. 🙂 Today I’m reviewing Dolly’s Mixtures Strawberry Daiquiri ‘Shake It Up’ shower gel.

From the bottle this shower gel smells exactly like strawberry daiquiri. I mean it! I can smell strawberry puree, lime juice, ice and booze! Wow!

However, as soon as you lather up the shower gel, it changes from “wow” to a random (and faint) soapy fragrance. I think this is rather disappointing. And I’m saying this as someone who doesn’t even drink alcohol.

I think it’ll probably take me a while to finish this shower gel. I don’t see myself reaching for it more often than once a week…

The brand Dolly’s Mixtures is exclusive to Asda. Dolly’s Mixtures products are usually £2 each. The shower gels are 300ml, the body sprays are 100ml. I paid £1 for this shower gel (half price offer).

If you’d like to try Dolly’s Mixtures shower gels, I would recommend their fantastic Bubble Gum shower gel!
