Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel, Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels with long names – Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel. I found these at Poundland just last week.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel which looks and smells super cute. The fragrance reminds me of those boiled raspberry sweets which I loved when I was a kid. I need to check if they’re still around. In the meantime, this delicious shower gel will have to do.

Onto Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel which smells absolutely lovely and luxurious from the bottle. Unfortunately, this shower gel doesn’t smell as nice as it’s lathered up; think supermarket own brand apple and elderflower fizzy water. Still, it’s definitely a decent shower gel for this time of year as it smells green, fresh and fruity. And I love that this shower gel is PETA-approved, so it’s certified cruelty-free! 😍

Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel and Cussons Creations Peace Bottled Apple & Elderflower Shower Gel are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about a shower gel that I used to love – but I haven’t used it in ages. Mainly because I have wayyy too many toiletries. I’m talking about boxes under the bed! But it is what it is. You shop like a maniac, you end up with a lot of random stuff.

Anyhoo, enough complaining! Let’s look at this Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream.

I’m happy to report that this shower gel is as nice as I remembered it. It smells fruity, juicy, sunny, summery and tropical. I also like how gentle this shower gel is. It lathers up well, but it’s not drying at all. Great stuff!

I would recommend this shower gel. If you’re interested Imperial Leather Awakening Mango & Papaya Infusions Shower Cream is available as 250ml and 400ml. I bought my bottle at a bargain store.

Empties – April 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in April. I used a bunch of single-use face masks – but I didn’t keep the empty sachets (I never do). But here are the big bottles and tubes.

Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – a very nice tropical body mist. I have at least 1 more bottle in my stash.

2 Anna Sui La Vie De Bohème Body Lotion – not my favourite Anna Sui fragrance. The body lotion was nice to use, but I wouldn’t repurchase it (or the matching fragrance).

3 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist – the best cheap Mugler Alien dupe you can find. I have a few more bottles, and I’d always repurchase this body mist.

4 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum – one of the best serums ever. A definite repurchase.

5 Agent Provocateur Fatale Intense Eau De Parfum – a really nice fragrance, similar to Mugler’s Angel. I don’t think I’d buy it again though. I have a bunch of other Angel dupes to try and use (and use up).

6 MakeUp Gallery Time To Shine Completely Clear 1 – Poundland’s own brand clear polish. Not the best clear polish, but definitely good enough as a base or top coat.

7 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet Shower Gel With Rooibos Tea, Rose And Almond – one of Palmolive’s best shower gels ever! My husband likes this one too. Unfortunately discontinued, but I have a few more bottles in my stash!

8 Sainsbury’s The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak – a very nice bath gel, and a definite repurchase!

9 Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Beautiful – a lovely shower gel. Unfortunately discontinued, otherwise I’d buy it again.

10 Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Energising Shower Gel With Grapefruit – a decent shower gel. Not my favourite type of grapefruit scent, but I would probably still repurchase this shower gel.

11 Rightguard Shower + Oils With Argan, Marula & Almond Oil – what a beautiful shower gel! My husband used it a few times too, and he also liked it a lot! Unfortunately, this one appears to have been discontinued.

12 Gliss Ultimate Volume Conditioner – just lovely! Too bad Gliss discontinued the Ultimate Volume product line, otherwise I’d buy this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) again.

April was a decent month for empties. I’m glad I managed to finish 3 fragrances and 5 shower and bath products. I hope May will be good too. I already finished 2 products today.

Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash, Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels that I started to use last week – Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash which is pretty much what you’d expect it to be. The shower gel is cleansing but feels gentle, and the raspberry and lime blossom adds a nice floral-fruity touch. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it.

Onto Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath which isn’t as nice as expected. The original bubble gum fragrance that Carex used to have in their hand soap was much better compared to whatever it is that they used in this shower gel. Also, this shower gel isn’t very cleansing, so it’s only for when you haven’t broken a sweat. I’m not impressed.

If you’re interested, Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash and Carex Drumsticks Squashies Bubblegum Shower & Bath are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I’m using at the moment – Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream.

Let’s start with Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel which is simply amazing! I love everything about this shower gel – the formula, the lather, how gentle it is… and, of course, the fragrance! I can’t describe the fragrance in many words, but I can describe it in 1 word = paradise!

Onto Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream which is really nice too. The scent of this shower gel is best described as a mix of sugarfree marshmallows and, indeed, cotton. I prefer the wonderful Tropical Rainforest scent, but Cotton Clouds is very good too!

Imperial Leather Tropical Rainforest & Exotic Papaya Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Cotton Clouds & White Cashmere Shower Cream are available as 250ml. I paid £1 each. I’ve also seen bigger bottles, but I’m not sure of the exact size (I assume those are 400ml or 500ml).

Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap. This shower soap is supposed to smell of sweet vanilla buttercream and a drizzly strawberry icing. The soap claims to be gentle on skin. Since the soap is housed in cardboard, the packaging is 100% recyclable. This is great!

I’ve given this soap a try, and I found it disappointing. Whilst I agree that the soap is gentle and that it left my skin feeling great, I didn’t care for the fragrance at all. I’d describe the fragrance as stale, a bit like old bread. This wasn’t great. So I threw out the soap after the first unpleasant use.

I won’t recommend this product, but if you’re interested, Imperial Leather Dreamy Donuts Sweet Treats Soap is available as a 100g bar soap for 70p (Sainsbury’s).

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I found at my local Superdrug store – Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel. I’ve previously had 2 shower gels from Imperial Leather’s Icon range, and I wanted to give these shower gels a try too.

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel is lovely! It smells of passion fruit and mango, and I love the yellow, sunny and happy fragrance. My husband likes it too! The formula is gentle on the skin, and I think this is one of the nicest shower gels I’ve used over the past 6 (or so) months.

Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel doesn’t smell of bamboo. The fragrance reminds me of some sort of sweet or candy from my childhood mixed with pineapple. I can’t describe the scent, but it smells warm and simply lovely (and it doesn’t smell overly sweet or sugary). Oh, and the pole-dancing pandas on the bottle are super fun too!

Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel and Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay Luscious Bamboo With A Fruity Twist Icons Shower Gel are available as 250ml. I paid 99p each (half price offer at Superdrug).

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You Shimmering Ice Crystals & Arctic Pearls Icons Shower Gel, Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth Tropical Rainforest & Water Mint Icons Shower Gel

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.
