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.

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.

Hi there! Some of you know that I’m a serious toiletries hoarder. However, I’m doing my best to use up as much ‘old stock’ as possible. And that’s why today’s post is about Imperial Leather Tempting Shower Creme with Guava and Lotus Flower, Bewitching Shower Creme with Blackberry Blossom and Wild Fig and Revitalising Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream. Now that’s a lot of bold print, so let’s get started with the actual review.
Guava & Lotus Flower is not my favourite because the scent is a tad too marine and too masculine for my taste. It’s not bad, it’s just that the fragrance doesn’t tickle my fancy. However, this shower cream feels surprisingly moisturising and it is very gentle to the skin.
Blackberry Blossom & Wild Fig smells quite strongly of figs. The warm and sweet fragrance is not for everybody (my husband hates it), but I think Imperial Leather managed to create a very authentic fig scent. This shower cream is just as moisturising as the guava & lotus flower one, but it gets an extra star for being pretty. Why is that? This shower cream contains micro shimmer – bewitching indeed!
Grapefruit & Pomegranate is a nice one. 🙂 I love grapefruits and blood oranges, so I had to have this shower gel. The scent is very realistic and I like it. However, I would have loved it if Imperial Leather had left out the pomegranate.
I believe that these three shower creams have been discontinued. The guava & lotus flower and grapefruit & pomegranate shower creams were briefly available in Imperial Leather’s new slim bottles, but I haven’t seen them in a while. The blackberry blossom & wild fig fragrance is now available as Foamburst.

Hi there! I’m always bargain hunting so it’s no surprise that I’m a regular at Poundworld, Poundland, Home Bargains, etc. Just a few weeks ago I found these 500 ml Imperial Leather shower gels for £1. I haven’t had these before, so I had to have them now.
Now meet Imperial Leather Relaxing Shower Cream with lavender and nightblooming jasmin and Imperial Leather Revitalising Shower Gel with uplifting summer fruits!
I really love the Relaxing Shower Cream. It ‘s hydrating and it feels great on the skin. I also like the scent. I find most lavender scented products to smell a bit harsh, but this shower cream has a pleasant floral fragrance. Well done, Imperial Leather!
The Revitalising Shower Gel smells fruity and summery – nice! However, I think this is one is one of the most drying shower gels I’ve used in the past couple of months. I think it would be OK if you don’t have dry skin, but if you do have dry skin, you won’t be able to skip the moisturiser after the shower.
If you too can’t resist anything that says 100% Extra Free, you should pop by your local Poundland to see if they stock these huge 500 ml Imperial Leather shower products. I’ll definitely go back soon to check if they’ve got any other fragrances. 🙂
