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 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!

Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher’s Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel. This product contains fruit seeds and ground apricot stones. These exfoliants are 100% natural. And the raspberry extract is organic!

I’ve been using this product twice a week for a few weeks now, and I like it!

The raspberry fragrance is sweet and natural. And the exfoliants do a great job. Thanks to the shower gel formula, this product doesn’t just exfoliate, it also cleanses the skin properly. This product mops the floor with those hard to spread and sticky sugar scrubs!

Yves Rocher’s Organic Raspberry Exfoliating Shower Gel has been discontinued. Whilst Yves Rocher continues to make exfoliating shower gels, the raspberry fragrance has been replaced with a raspberry & peppermint fragrance.

Patisserie De Bain Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Crème and Hand & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion. I wouldn’t have chosen these products for myself, but I received them as a gift with purchase. And here’s what I think. 🙂

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream is quite alright. It lathers up well, and whilst it’s a bit drying, I think the fragrance is surprisingly well done. It’s too sweet for my taste, but I’d describe it as a mix of cranberries, custard and pink champagne. Again, not really my kind of fragrance, but if you like sweet fragrances in shower gels, I’d recommend this shower gel.

Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Hand & Body Lotion isn’t great because they didn’t get the fragrance right. I’d describe it as a sickly sweet mess. This one will be used as a foot cream!

If you’re interested, you can purchase Patisserie De Bain products through Rose & Co. England. Superdrug stocks a few of their products as well. Patisserie De Bain’s Cranberries & Cream Bath & Shower Cream and Hand & Body Lotion are available as 200ml each.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream and Thai Fusion Bath Moments

Hi there! If you read my blog, you may know that I’ve got drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries. and that I’m working my way through my stash. Two of the (g)oldies I’ve just rediscovered are Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream with green tea, rice milk and jasmine, and Imperial Leather Thai Fusion Bath Moments with pomegrante, hibiscus and milk.

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa
(bath cream & shower gel) was originally a limited edition, but it became part of Imperial Leather’s standard collection. It’s been repackaged a few times already. And it’s no surprise Imperial Leather held onto the formula because the fragrance is clean, green, sweet and sensual. It’s very nice!

Thai Fusion has also been a limited edition. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s a shame because the exotic floral-fruity fragrance is warm, sweet, sunny and simply beautiful. I’ll miss it when it’s gone!

Imperial Leather bath products are available as 500ml. Prices vary depending on where you shop, but there’s always a store that runs a half price promotion (which happens to be the reason why I have drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries). 🙂

Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub, Body Wash, Body Lotion & Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of vanilla-scented products from Boots’ Extracts collection. I’ve already reviewed Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray, so it was time to take a closer look at the matching body care products. 🙂

Let’s start with Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub! I’ve tried a number of body scrubs from Boots, and this one is quite similar. This means that this scrub is on the gentler side. I’m satisfied that it exfoliates my skin, but I prefer grittier scrubs for my body. Having said that, I think this body scrub smells awesome!

Up next is Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Wash! I think this is a nice shower gel. It smells lovely and it’s not drying. Boots did a great job with this one.

Onto Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Lotion! This is a great little body lotion for when you’re in a hurry. It’s absorbed in no time, and it makes skin feel soft and hydrated all day. And the sweet and cuddly fragrance is an added bonus.

And last but not least… Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Butter. This is, without doubt, one of the best vanilla body butters out there. It feels nourishing, it’s not tacky at all, and, you guessed it, it makes your skin smell delicious! Well done, Boots!

Boots’ Extracts collection seems to be disappearing from the stores. The manager at my local store told me the entire line is getting a makeover. Let’s hope this is true!

Have you tried any Boots Extracts products? Which fragrance do you like best? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

The Body Shop Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai & Frosted Berries Shower Gels

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 shower gels that I picked up during the winter sale in January – The Body Shop Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries.

Let’s start with The Body Shop Frosted Plum! I think this is a pretty basic shower gel. It lathers up well, but it feels drying. And the plum fragrance is rather faint. I will finish this shower gel, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.

The Body Shop Vanilla Chai is very nice. I’d describe the fragrance as a boozy mix of herbal tea and vanilla. My husband likes this shower gel (which is actually more of a shower cream) too!

The Body Shop Frosted Berries is just as drying as the plum shower gel. The berry fragrance is super lovely, but, unfortunately, quite faint.

Based on my experience I would recommend the Vanilla Chai shower gel. I would repurchase this one if TBS brings it back for Christmas and if it’s on sale after Christmas. But I wouldn’t recommend or repurchase the other 2 shower gels.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries are available as 250ml. I paid £2.50 each (winter sale).

Treacle Moon Warm Cookie Dough Bath And Shower Gel

Hi there! It’s been ages since I tried or reviewed a “new” (well, new to me) Treacle Moon product.

And I feel bad about it because I’ve had Treacle Moon’s Warm Cookie Dough Shower & Bath Gel in my stash for quite some time now…

However, I finally managed to give this bath and shower gel a try – and I liked it a lot!

Warm Cookie Dough smells like… warm cookie dough! I can’t wrap my brain around it, but I think it’s vanilla, cocoa powder (for the warm feel) and sugar. It’s delicious!

More good news: This shower gel is super gentle on dry skin! Awesome stuff!

Treacle Moon Warm Cookie Dough Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml for £3 (Waitrose, Tesco). I paid £2 (save 1/3 promotion).
