I Love… Strawberries & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Crème, Nourishing Body Butter and Refreshing Body Spritzer

Hi there! I got myself a few more I Love… products. These were on sale for half price (£1.49) because I Love… is currently giving it’s entire collection a makeover. I think the line didn’t need updating – not yet. That’s because I Love… manages to capture the scents of fruits and sweets perfectly – which is something that some high street brands struggle with. But I don’t want to complain about ‘other brands’. I’d rather tell you what I Love’s… Strawberries & Cream collection is like! 🙂
I Love Strawberries and Cream
I Love… Strawberries & Cream Bath and Shower Cream (available as 500ml) is a gentle bath and shower product. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturising, but it’s certainly not drying. The strawberries & cream fragrance is very sweet!

I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Butter (available as 200ml) is a reasonable moisturiser. It’s not as thick as many other comparable body butters, so it’s a bit easier to apply. But it isn’t as rich as those thick body butters. Still, it’s definitely a good product! The strawberries & cream scent is sweet, intense and longlasting.

I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Spritzer (available as 100ml) really is the cat’s whiskers – if you’re into strawberry-scented body sprays. On its own this body spritzer isn’t that longlasting (which is OK). But if you spray it on after you’ve used the matching body butter, you’ll be surrounded by the sweet aromas of strawberries & cream for hours – probably even half a day. I think that’s fairly impressive!

I’m not the biggest fan of super sweet scents in toiletries. So I’ll be giving the body spritzer and the bath and shower cream away. I’ll use up the body butter myself (my fingers have been in the tub, so I wouldn’t want to give this one away). But my teenage relative will surely be happy to take the other two products off my hands.

Saying this, if you’re a fan of strawberry-scented toiletries, I would definitely recommend this I Love… collection. The strawberries & cream fragrance is sweet, intense and much more authentic than some high street brands’ (more expensive) strawberry-scented offerings.

The I Love… Strawberries & Cream product line has been updated – the design of the packaging has changed and some products might be replaced. However, the price seems to have remained the same – most I Love… products are still £2.99.

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer

I Love... Cherry Almond SparkleHi there! If you read my blog, you know I’ve been buying all things I Love… lately. I bought quite a few body mists (and other products) – for £1 each from Poundland! Here’s the haul post.

I thought I was very lucky that I Love…’s 2015 Christmas collection hit the bargain stores. I already had the shower gel and the body butter. So I was happy to try the I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer as well.

However, after trying the body mist, I have to say it’s not for me. Whilst the shower gel and body butter do smell like cherry bakewell tarts, the body mist smells like a mix of almonds and baked bread – without the tiniest hint of cherries.

And when the fragrance dries down, it leaves behind a bread-like scent on my skin and my clothes. I may be too critical, but I don’t like the smell or the taste of bread, so I won’t be using this body mist again. But the product won’t be wasted. It’s going in my beauty box for the women’s shelter. Hopefully someone else will like this body mist a lot more.

If you would like to try I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Refreshing Body Spritzer, it’s £2.99 at Superdrug’s or onlline. Or swing by your local Poundland where you might find it for £1.

I won’t touch the Coconut & Cream products because I hate the taste, texture and smell of coconuts. But I know many people who love all things coconut. So the two I Love… Coconut & Cream products I bought will be given to someone who will like and use them. I also have a few (unopened) Cherry Almond Sparkle body butters now. These will also be given away.

So if you’re looking for a few little beauty treats for yourself, keep your eyes peeled the next time you’re at Poundland. Or if you’d like to give someone a really nice beauty hamper – go get a basket and fill it with I Love… products!

I Love… products are £2.99 at drugstores, supermarkets, etc. But Poundland currently stocks the Cherry Almond Sparkle limited edition and a few other lines (which I think are about to be discontinued). I’ll go back to Poundland soon!

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I’ve done all my sale shopping, so I went to Poundland yesterday. And I found this I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Body Butter – for £1! I just started to use the Cherry Almond Sparkle body wash a few days ago. So I was very happy to find the matching body butter for such a bargain price.
I Love Cherry Almond Body Butter
I think this body butter is a really nice moisturiser. It makes my skin feel soft and it’s not sticky. And just like the shower gel this body butter smells like cherry bakewell tarts. It’s absolutely delicious and very suitable for this time of year. What’s not to love?

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle is available as 250ml and 500ml Bath & Shower Crème, 200ml Body Butter and 100ml Body Spritzer. I don’t know how much the 250 ml Bath & Shower Crème is, but the other three products are £2.99 each – online and at Superdrug’s. Or if you’re looking for a bargain, try Poundland and the likes. 😉

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Bath & Shower Crème

I Love Cherry AlmondHi there! I’m one of those people who buy beauty gift sets for themselves – usually post-Christmas when they’re half price. 😉 Now imagine how happy I was when I spotted a few different I Love… gift sets for half price at Superdrug’s last week.

Most of the sets contained familiar I Love… products and fragrances, such as Strawberries & Cream, Mango & Papaya and the likes. But I found one set which contained Raspberry & Blackberry products AND this limited edition I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Bath & Shower Crème.

I’ve used this shower crème twice now, and I must say that I love it. It smells just like cherry bakewell tarts. Absolutely delicious! I can see that I might eventually tire of this fragrance, but for now I’m very happy with this yummy shower crème.

I also like that this product is very gentle. I don’t think it’s particularly rich or creamy or moisturising, but it’s not drying at all which is always a bonus, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin.

I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle is available as 250ml and 500ml Bath & Shower Crème, 200ml Body Butter and 100ml Body Spritzer. I don’t know how much the 250 ml Bath & Shower Crème is, but the other three products are £2.99 each.
