Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You, Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 super cute shower gels that I picked up at my local Poundland store – Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth. Seriously – how cute are these? 😍

Alrighty, let’s get to the reviews! Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You has a “shimmering ice crystals & arctic pearls” fragrance. It’s difficult to describe it, but I’d call it a candied marine fragrance. It’s something kids would enjoy! But not just kids. I like this shower gel. My husband likes this shower gel. So… I’d recommend this one. It’s unique and fun!

Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth with its “tropical rainforest & water mint” fragrance smells green, minty and masculine. I don’t want to say they forgot the “for men” sticker, but this one doesn’t smell like a girly shower gel at all. I do like it, and it’s a great, refreshing shower gel for hot summer days. But I think my husband likes it a bit more than I do. All in all, I would recommend this shower gel. It’s really unique too!

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa, Japanese Spa

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I’m using at the moment – Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa and Imperial Leather Japanese Spa. I found these at one of the bargain stores, and I’m glad I did!

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa with vanilla bean and cherry blossom is 100% fantastic. The vanilla and cherry fragrance smells like a mix of Cherry Garcia ice cream and Kenzo Amour perfume. It’s just wow!

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa is an old favourite of mine. I adore the sweet green fragrance. It’s lovely!

Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa and Imperial Leather Japanese Spa are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each. The shower gels are limited editions, but these 2 fragrances have been renamed and repackaged a few times already, so it’s likely that Imperial Leather will recycle the fragrances and formulas at some point.

Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash, Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up at Poundland – Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash with cucumber and aloe vera and Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash with cotton extract and oat milk.

Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash with cucumber and aloe vera is not a favourite. Whilst I’m happy to report that this shower gel is gentle on sensitive skin, I don’t care for the insanely boring cucumber and aloe vera fragrance. I’ll squeeze this shower gel into the hand wash dispenser in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash with cotton extract and oat milk will end up in the hand wash dispenser as well. It’s not a terrible product, but the fragrance is too boring for words…

I won’t repurchase these shower gels, but if you’re interested… Imperial Leather SkinKind Refreshing Body Wash and Imperial Leather SkinKind Hydrating Body Wash are available as 500ml. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream, Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 bath products – Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream and Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream.

Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream is really lovely! It’s gentle on dry skin, and it smells floral, warm and strangely seductive. I think the fragrance is best described as a velvety purple petal fragrance!

Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream is fantastic! I love the non-drying formula and the fragrance – which I’d describe as an oriental floral honey bubblegum fragrance.

I’ll buy these 2 bath creams again for sure! If you’re interested, Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream and Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream are available as 500ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa Passion Flower & Almond Milk Spa Escape Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla Infusions Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower creams which I started to use a few weeks ago – Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk and Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla.

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk is a nice enough shower cream. It feels mildly hydrating. The fragrance is best described as a pink floral fragrance with an almond core. I don’t care for the fragrance. It’s not terrible, but it’s incredibly unremarkable.

Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla feels just as hydrating as the Polynesian Spa shower cream. This fragrance is a bit nicer. However, I’d still describe it as an unspectacular jasmine fragrance with a hint of vanilla.

Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa with Passion Flower & Almond Milk and Imperial Leather Moisturising Night Blooming Jasmine & Vanilla are available as 250ml and 400ml. I paid 90p each for the 400ml bottles.

The Battle Of The Unicorns – Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower And Bath vs. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak

Hi there! I haven’t done a product comparison for quite some time. So when I saw these 2 unicorn-themed products, I thought they would be perfect for a comparison post! And here’s how these 2 products fared. 🙂

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic Shower & Bath is good but not great. The fragrance is best described as a sugared violet sweets fragrance. It’s enjoyable but very fleeting. The formula is nice. I wouldn’t say the shower gel is hydrating, but it certainly doesn’t make my skin feel dry. Like I said, this shower gel is good but not great.

Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak was a nice surprise! From the bottle it smells terribly bland, and I thought this one might end up in the hand wash dispenser. However, I’m glad I gave this product a try because once it hits the skin, it smells pleasantly floral and soapy. Whilst the fragrance isn’t very special, I do like it. I’m also happy to report that this product doesn’t make my skin feel dry.

Whilst I ended up liking both products, I think Carex‘s Unicorn Magic is the better product. The cute fragrance fits the cute unicorn theme perfectly.

Carex Fun Edition Unicorn Magic is available as Hand Wash and Shower & Bath.I paid £1 for the 500ml Shower & Bath. Imperial Leather Cosmic Unicorn Fantasy Icon Bath Soak is available as Shower Gel and Bath Soak. I paid £1 for the 500ml Bath Soak.

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream, Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I’ve been using for a few weeks now – Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate. Onto the review!

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream is simply wonderful. I love the fruity, sunny fragrance. It almost makes me forget how cold it’s been for the past few weeks. I also like the gentle formula. Great stuff!

Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel isn’t the most spectacular shower gel, but it is nice. The fragrance isn’t too sweet, it’s more like a red fruit and tea fragrance.

Imperial Leather Invigorating Mango & Papaya Shower Cream and Imperial Leather Uplifting Raspberry & Pomegranate Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – Precious & Irresistible

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious! This shower gel with rosewater and sandalwood smells simply amazing. I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of sunlight and amber. It’s… wow! The moisturising argan oil pearls are effective too. This is the perfect shower gel for those hot summer days when you can’t bring yourself to use a body lotion.
imperial-leather-shower-09
Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible with Indian lotus and waterlily is just as amazing. I’d describe it as the perfect mermaid shower gel! The marine fragrance is surprisingly sophisticated, and I know I’ll be enjoying it very much these next few weeks.

Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Precious and Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible are available as 250ml. They have disappeared from the drugstore and supermarket shelves, but they’re available at bargain stores. I picked these up for 89p each at B&M Bargains!
