Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel

treacle-moon-that-vanilla-moment-2Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon’s That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel. My husband and I call it amazingness in a bottle. 🙂

I’ve been avoiding Treacle Moon products for years. I have nothing against the brand – au contraire! I do think the brand is actually very quirky.

However, I just somehow made the decision to ignore all things Treacle Moon. I guess it was some anti-hoarding impulse that kicked in… 😀

Anyway, now the shower gel is mine, and I’ve given it a try! I think this shower gel is lovely. The vanilla fragrance isn’t a pure vanilla. I think it’s a mix of vanilla and yoghurt with a hint of lemon.

This shower gel smells sweet and refreshing at the same time. And I love the non-drying formula. I’m very happy with this product!

I would recommend this shower gel to everyone! Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml for £3 (Waitrose, Tesco). I paid £2 (save 1/3 promotion).

Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut Body Scrub, Body Butter & Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Boots Extracts products – Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut Body Scrub, Body Butter and Body Wash. These 3 products were part of a large Christmas-themed gift set that contained several products from four different Boots Extracts product lines (Marshmallow & Peppermint, Mango, Vanilla and, obviously, Coconut). Now let’s get straight to the actual review!

The Body Scrub was the first product I tried. Just like all the other Boots Extracts scrubs, this one is quite alright. It could be a little grittier, but it’s still a good product. I also like the coconut fragrance because it’s rather subtle. The Body Wash is really nice. I like the moisturising formula and, again, I’m happy with the subtle coconut fragrance.

The Body Butter is truly great. It’s rich, but it feels light. It’s very nourishing, but it’s not sticky. It makes my skin feel soft and silky, but it doesn’t feel like “product” on my skin. This body butter is subtly scented – which is fantastic because I think the majority of coconut fragrances are just overwhelming. So I think Boots did a great job with this body butter. And, of course, Boots did a great job with the body wash and the body scrub too.

I would recommend these products! Boots Extracts Luxurious Coconut is available as 400ml Scrub for £6.50 and 200ml Body Butter for £6. It appears that, at the moment, the shower gel isn’t part of the regular collection. However, if you really want the shower gel, you should keep an eye on special occasion gift sets (Christmas, Mother’s Day etc.).

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna

upload-5Hi there! Montagne Jeunesse’s Grapefruit Sauna (Primark, 90p) is the star of today’s post. 🙂

This face mask promises to gently warm skin for a fresh and radiant glow. This sounds great! But is the mask really any good?

Yes, the mask is awesome! The warming effect is very pleasant. And it’s only warm, it’s not hot, I promise!

I also enjoyed the fragrance which is probably the purest and most authentic pink grapefruit fragrance I’ve ever smelled. It’s gorgeous!

And what about the skin benefits? I didn’t see a difference, but I felt a difference. My skin felt super clean and clear. Fantastic!

So would I recommend this face mask? Yes, absolutely!

This Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna face mask is certified cruelty-free, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. It’s approved by BUAV (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo) and by the Vegetarian Society.

I Love… Yummy Caramel Bath & Shower Crème, Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 I Love… products that I found at my local Poundworld. I Love… had 2 limited editions last Christmas – Chocolate Truffle and Yummy Caramel. The Chocolate Truffle products were everywhere (I stocked up!), but I couldn’t find the Yummy Caramel products anywhere – until a few weeks ago.

And now that I’ve been using these 2 products for about a week, let me tell you if I Love…’s Yummy Caramel Bath & Shower Crème and Nourishing Body Butter are any good. 🙂
i-love-yummy-caramel
I Love…’s Yummy Caramel Bath & Shower Crème is a nice shower product. The caramel fragrance is sweet and yummy (they weren’t kidding), and the formula is gentle and non-drying. Great stuff! I Love…’s Yummy Caramel Nourishing Body Butter is rich and nourishing indeed, and it smells sweet and yummy too. This body butter is a real skin treat!

I would recommend these I Love… products to everyone. I found these products at my local Poundworld, but I’ve also seen them at Bargain Buys – for £1 each.
I Love…’s Yummy Caramel Bath & Shower Crème is available as 500ml, and
I Love…’s Yummy Caramel Nourishing Body Butter is available as 200ml.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Calcot Manor’s The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter. This body butter claims to “melt effortlessly into skin” and to “leave a gorgeous, scented glow”. A quick scan of the ingredients revealed that this body butter contains quite a few natural ingredients – i.e. sunflower seed oil, bitter orange flower extract, fig extract, green tea leaf extract, rose flower extract, papaya fruit extract, etc… This sounds promising! Now let me tell you if this body butter is any good!
calcot-manor-rich-body-butter
I think this body butter is very hydrating. It feels rich – but it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. I like it! However, I don’t think my skin looks any different. There’s definitely no glow. In addition, this body butter doesn’t smell gorgeous at all. I can detect a faint lemony fragrance – and that’s all there is.

Would I recommend this body butter? Yes and no. I will finish this body butter, but I wouldn’t repurchase it. And if you want a lovely smelling body butter, keep looking! However, if you want a rich (yet non-sticky) body butter, give this one a sniff. If you’re OK with the fragrance, you might be happy with this product.

Calcot Manor’s The Perfect Day Rich Body Butter is available as 250ml. Prices vary greatly – depending on where you shop. I paid 99p for this product (bargain store), but I’ve also found an online shop that sells this body butter for just under £10. So make sure you compare prices online before you buy!

NSPA Mango Fragrance Body Mist, NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.

NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂

NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!

NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.

100% Awesome – Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Wash, Body Scrub & Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose Body Wash, Body Scrub and Body Butter. It’s been some time since I bought my Flower Pharm Wild Rose gift set (Asda, £5). But when I saw a similar Flower Pharm set (same contents, slightly different packaging) at my local Tesco store the other day (I thought these products were discontinued – ?!), I knew I should finally try the products that I already have!

I have reviewed the body butter (which I have a big tub of) some time ago, and you can read my review here. In summary, this body butter is amazing! It’s rich, but not sticky. It feels great on my skin and it makes my skin feel great. I love it! And instead of mineral oil and synthetic fragrances, it contains coconut oil and real Damascus rose flower water. This body butter is fantastic!
Flower Pharm Wild Rose
The body scrub is very nice and effective. It contains pecan shell powder but it feels like a sea salt scrub. Great stuff! In addition, this body scrub contains sweet almond oil and shea butter – I guess this is why this scrub makes my skin feel so soft and conditioned. The body wash is wonderful. It’s a clear gel that lathers up nicely and cleanses my skin gently. It smells lovely and it doesn’t feel drying at all. Well done, Flower Pharm!

If you’re wondering what the fragrance is like… it’s a charmingly old-fashioned and pure rose fragrance. And it doesn’t have that sweaty note that most rose fragrances seem to have nowadays. This is the kind of rose I’d like to smell in all rose-scented products. So yes, I would recommend Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose collection! As Flower Pharm’s products seem to be stocked by the most random stores, you should check if your local supermarket, drugstore or bargain store has them. You won’t be disappointed by Flower Pharm products, I promise!
