Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter & Fragrance Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 body products which I picked up at Poundland – Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter and Fragrance Mist. I’ve been using these products on and off since mid-January, and here’s what I think.

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter is very nice! Whilst it feels a bit sticky (it’s not too bad, I promise), I am not complaining because this body butter feels deeply nourishing. It also takes a minute or two to absorb, but I don’t mind because the result is beautiful skin that feels super soft and well hydrated. This is a great body butter!

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Fragrance Mist promises to refresh and hydrate skin. I’m happy to confirm that it keeps its promise. The fragrance mist smells and feels very refreshing. I also like to spray it down my back because it’s hydrating.

What else? The fragrance of these 2 products is definitely a lot more raspberry than grapefruit. I would have preferred it the other way around, but I do like the fresh raspberry fragrance of these products, so I have no reason to be unhappy. Based on my experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these products.

Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter is available as 250ml. Baylis & Harding Beauticology Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Fragrance Mist is available as 100ml. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

May Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite products from this month. I picked 3 favourites, and I threw in a few honourable mentions as well. Now let me tell you which products I fell in love with this month. 🙂

3rd place – NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel
Runner-Up – Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower Gel is the best grapefruit shower gel I’ve ever had. Unfortunately this product has been discontinued. However, I’m glad I have 2 bottles of this fantastic shower gel. 🙂

Montagne Jeunesse’s Grapefruit Sauna is a great face mask. The second time I used this mask, I left it on for over an hour (I sometimes do that…) and it made a huge difference to my skin. Sure, it made my skin feel very dry (although this problem was easy to fix…) but my pores looked considerably smaller than usual. I was blown away! Oh, and this mask smells extremely nice!

WINNER – Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit

Manhattan’s American Grapefruit flavoured Tasty Lips Lipgloss is my May 2017 favourite. This lipgloss is, without doubt, my favourite lipgloss ever. It feels great on my lips and it tastes like… heaven. 11 stars!

This month’s Top 3 have one thing in common – grapefruit! It’s pure coincidence, and I didn’t even realise it until I started to use the NSPA shower gel earlier this month! 😀

But now onto the honourable mentions! Treacle Moon’s That Vanilla Moment is extremely nice. And I really like L’Oréal’s Skin Perfection Gel-Cream Wash. I also think that 2 of the 3 Eva & Davis fragrances that I reviewed are pretty awesome!

Have you tried any of these products? Which products did you like best this month? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s The Sunniest Juiciest Tantalising Bright Pink Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve had this shower gel in my stash for some time. It’s almost summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try. And now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’ve fallen in love with it.

Why is this shower gel so amazing? It makes me feel clean and refreshed, but it’s not drying. And the fragrance is… paradise! The grapefruit scent is juicy, fresh, and just so full of live. It’s not a sugary grapefruit fragrance for teenagers. No! It’s the perfect South Florida pink grapefruit fragrance.

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel has been discontinued. However, I hope that NSPA will recycle the formula to give us another limited edition grapefruit shower gel.

Have you tried this shower gel? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

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.
Body Fantasies 1
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. 😉
