Ted Baker London Body Wash, Body Spray, Bubble Bath & Body Soufflé

Hi there! I received this Ted Baker gift set for Christmas last year. I wouldn’t have chosen it for myself because I don’t care for the brand, but I’m glad I received this gift set because I got the chance to try these products! 😊

This gift set contains 4 products – a body wash, a bubble bath, a body soufflé and a body spray. Onto the reviews!

The body wash is a clear gel. It lathers up reasonably well, and it cleanses my skin gently. The fragrance is a bit random but nice enough.

The body spray isn’t my favourite product of the bunch because it’s a “floral alcohol hairspray” type of fragrance. It doesn’t smell terrible, and I think I might have loved it if I were a teenager (… do you remember Chipie?), but it’s not something I would choose for myself now. On a positive note, my husband says he likes the smell of this body spray, and I would definitely consider buying it as a present for a teenage relative.

I think the bubble bath is the same product as the shower gel. Same consistency / thickness, smells the same, feels the same on my skin…

Last but not least… the body soufflé! I’m really enjoying this moisturiser because it feels very hydrating without being sticky. This one’s definitely suitable for warm-to-hot summer days!

All in all, I’m grateful that I received this gift set, and I’m glad that I had the chance to try these products!

Primark PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Primark’s PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub. I saw this product at my local Primark a few weeks ago, and I just had to have it! At the moment I’m actually trying to finish 2 different body scrubs, but hey, it’s summer, and this stuff is watermelon-scented… 🌞 🍉

I’ve already used this body scrub a few times, and I love it! It’s effective but not too harsh, and the watermelon ice cream fragrance is to die for! This is one of my favourite products this summer. 🥰 11 stars!

Primark’s PS… Exfoliate & Cleanse Watermelon Body Scrub is available as 475ml for £3. Go! Buy!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract. This is a limited charity edition (just like this one), and 15% of the price of the product will go to Marie Curie. This is awesome!

About the product itself… this is a body moisturiser that’s aimed at people with normal to dry skin. It contains a number of vitamins – E, A, B5, F and H, as well as coconut oil, horse chestnut extract, and moonstone extract.

I’ve been using this moisturiser for about 2 weeks now, and I’m blown away! The formula is something between Superdrug’s light Vitamin E moisturiser and a body butter. It has the best of both worlds – proper hydration, no stickiness. This makes it very suitable for all seasons, even for warm-to-hot summer days. 😍

The fragrance is very lovely too. I can’t describe it properly, but it’s a mix of pearls, powder and a hint of poppies. It’s gorgeous!

I’m very happy with this moisturiser, and I’d recommend it! Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract is suitable for vegans and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 465ml for £3.49. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotions on their Vitamin E stuff most of the time – and that’s why I picked up 2 tubs for £5.24. 😊

Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel.

I’m a big fan of Treacle Moon because, so far, I liked or loved almost every single one of their products. So yes, expectations for this shower gel were high!

I’ve now given product a try, and I love it! This shower gel smells of marshmallows and cookie dough. It smells warm, cuddly and sweet. Truly impressive stuff!

I’m also happy to report that this shower gel doesn’t feel drying. It’s almost like a shower cream!

I would recommend this amazing shower gel to anyone who likes to smell good! Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £2 (save 1/3 offer, Tesco).

Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion, Hand Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion and Hand Cream. I bought these products when they went on sale after Christmas.

I’m pretty sure this collection is sold out now, but Yves Rocher seems to be doing the same 2 collections almost every Christmas (it’s usually vanilla and berries), so they might recycle these fragrances for this year’s festive season. Who knows…

Onto the review! Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel is lovely. I would describe the fragrance as a mix of snow and vanilla. The shower gel is gentle and not drying at all, and I’m very happy with it.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion smells just as lovely as the shower gel. I also love the light formula. It’s not the most suitable body lotion for dry skin, but it absorbs in no time without leaving a sticky film behind. I think this is the perfect body lotion for when you’re in a hurry.

Yves Rocher‘s Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Hand Cream is my favourite of the bunch! This is the perfect hand cream. It feels instantly nourishing, but it doesn’t feel sticky at all. It makes my hands feel super soft, but it doesn’t feel like “product”. The cute snowy vanilla fragrance is the icing on the cake. Awesome stuff!

If you’re interested in Yves Rocher products, you have to look online since, unfortunately, Yves Rocher ceased trading in the UK 2 weeks ago.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter which is aimed at women with dry to very dry skin. On the side of the tub it reads “a body moisturizing formula so virtuous, you might swear you’re wearing velvet”.

Soap and Glory also went to great lengths to describe the fragrance – apparently it’s a mix of leafy greens, bergamot, mandarin, fruity and floral notes, as well as musk, oakmoss, amber and woody notes.

I’ve been using this body butter for a week now, and I think it’s good but not great. I like the formula. It’s easy to spread, and it absorbs quickly (great for when you’re in a hurry). It hydrates my skin reasonably well without feeling sticky. And a look at the bottom of the tub reveals that this body butter contains quality ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa seed butter.

Having said that, there are many other body butters (lotions even) which hydrate skin much better and which cost a lot less. As someone who actually has very dry skin, I have to say that this body butter is nothing special.

I also don’t care for the fragrance. It’s a nice enough but forgettable girly pink fragrance. I think it smells like aloe, watermelon and candy floss. It’s not a bad fragrance, but it’s rather unspectacular.

Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter is available as 50ml for £3 and 300ml for £10. I have a 200ml tub which is a special size they did for their Christmas gift sets.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet & Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise

Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. A few weeks ago, one of my friends picked up a set of 5 travel-sized Treacle Moon shower gels. My friend knows that I love fresh and fruity toiletries, so she gave me these 2 60ml shower gels. I’ve now tried (and finished) them, and here’s what I think.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet is simply wonderful. The sunny honeydew melon fragrance is 100% spot on. I love it! I hope Treacle Moon launches this fragrance in the UK. I’d be more than happy to pick up those giant 500ml bottles on a regular basis!

Since I love all things grapefruit, I had high hopes for Treacle Moon‘s Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise. However, this shower gel isn’t great. It smells like warm plastic and fruit. If I hadn’t known that it’s supposed to be a grapefruit fragrance, I would never have guessed it! I’ve also looked up every single grapefruit shower gel that I’ve used over the past 4 years (thanks to my blog, this took me less than 2 minutes), and this one is the only one I didn’t like.

Treacle Moon Happy Melon Sorbet and Treacle Moon Sugared Grapefruit Sunrise are available as part of a 5-piece shower gel gift set (5x60ml). My friend bough the set in Germany. I have never come across these 2 fragrances over here in the UK, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for Happy Melon Sorbet!
