Reducing My Oldies Stash – Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream and Thai Fusion Bath Moments

Hi there! If you read my blog, you may know that I’ve got drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries. and that I’m working my way through my stash. Two of the (g)oldies I’ve just rediscovered are Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream with green tea, rice milk and jasmine, and Imperial Leather Thai Fusion Bath Moments with pomegrante, hibiscus and milk.

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa
(bath cream & shower gel) was originally a limited edition, but it became part of Imperial Leather’s standard collection. It’s been repackaged a few times already. And it’s no surprise Imperial Leather held onto the formula because the fragrance is clean, green, sweet and sensual. It’s very nice!

Thai Fusion has also been a limited edition. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s a shame because the exotic floral-fruity fragrance is warm, sweet, sunny and simply beautiful. I’ll miss it when it’s gone!

Imperial Leather bath products are available as 500ml. Prices vary depending on where you shop, but there’s always a store that runs a half price promotion (which happens to be the reason why I have drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries). 🙂

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Shower Gel & Silky Lotion

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 products that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Shower Gel & Silky Lotion. 🙂

The shower gel is simply amazing. It leaves my skin feeling cleansed but not stripped. And the fragrance is the most wonderful sweet and juicy raspberry fragrance. Awesome stuff!

The silky lotion is pretty much perfect as well. It smells just as great as the shower gel. And I love the formula – the body lotion is quick and easy to apply, and it melts into the skin (great for workday mornings). I love it!

I think these 2 products are sensational. Because of this I’m sad that Yves Rocher discontinued the entire raspberry collection. However, it appears that Yves Rocher seems to reinvent the Les Plaisirs Nature collection every couple of months – so I hope they’ll reintroduce the raspberry collection. If they do, I’ll be stocking up! 🙂

Café De Bain Softening Shower Gel – Sweet Vanilla Madeleine, Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte

Hi there! Today’s post is about Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes which I picked up a little while ago (Superdrug).

Let’s start with Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine! This shower cream smells like Werther’s Originals Butter Candies. 100% delicious! I also like that this shower cream is not drying at all. This one’s really nice!
Cafe De Bain Shower
Café De Bain Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower cream is just as gentle on the skin. This shower cream smells sweet and fruity, but it’s not sugary-sweet. I’d describe the scent as a mix of milk and red fruits with a hint of coconut.

Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes are available as 250ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.49 each (half price offer). 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Fruity Beauty Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask. This face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can buy it for 90p.

This mask is a regular peel-off mask. You apply it, let it dry (15 minutes), peel it off, wash your face… and that’s already it! 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think it’s really nice. It made my skin feel soft and clear, and I loved the tropical mango and lemon fragrance.

I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s looking for an effective peel-off mask that smells like… summer and sun. 🙂

Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility Bath Creams

Hi there! Today’s review is about 2 bath products that I’ve been enjoying lately – Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility. Whilst I generally prefer a shower, nothing beats a hot bath on a cold evening. 🙂 Now, without further ado, onto the reviews!
imperial-leather-bath-03
Imperial Leather Paradise Island with peach nectar & vanilla bean smells exactly like peach nectar and vanilla! I love the gorgeous fragrance because it’s beautifully done and because it smells like… summer, sunlight, warmth and pure happiness. Awesome stuff!

Imperial Leather Sea Of Tranquility with sea samphire & marine elements is really good too. The fragrance is definitely marine, but fortunately it doesn’t smell like a bath product for men. Very nice!

All in all, I’m happy with these products and I’d recommend them – especially Paradise Island! 🙂 I bought these two 500ml bath creams for either 99p or £1 each at one of the bargain stores (I think it was Home Bargains).

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug De-Stressing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask.

This product promises a deep and purifying cleanse. At the same time the mask also promises to relax your mind.

I think this mask is alright. It’s considerably thinner than all the other Superdrug clay or mud masks that I’ve tried, but it gets the job done.

The mask smells soapy, it has a minty colour, and it’s quite similar to Anatomicals’ Mattifying Face Mask. It may actually be the exact same product. 🙂

Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask. is 100% cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. And it’s 99p only!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Sea Splash Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Sea Splash Peel Off face mask with Dead Sea salt and seaweed.

This mask promises “a deep cleansing for a revitalising boost”, and it is exclusive to Primark where I bought it for 90p. 🙂

How’s the mask? I think this mask is almost an exact duplicate of Montagne Jeunesse’s Black Seaweed mask. The only difference is the colour. The Black Seaweed mask is black, whilst the Sea Splash mask is almost transparent with a blueish tint.

To be more specific – this mask is OK. It didn’t make a visible difference to my skin, but I’m sure it did cleanse my pores. I don’t think the mask smells great – I’d describe the smell as swamp-like.

I wouldn’t buy this face mask again, but if you’d like to try it, head to Primark! Montagne Jeunesse’s Sea Splash Peel Off face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo, and it’s approved by the Vegetarian Society.
