Reducing My Oldies Stash – Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel & Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which I picked up for £1 each. And here they are!

Kirstie Allsopp Nerolina Orange Blossom Shower Gel has a true orange flower fragrance. I’m enjoying it very much. This shower gel seems to have low SLS. It doesn’t lather up very well. If you like low SLS shower gels, you should consider giving this one a try. I found this large 400ml shower gel at Home Bargains (clearance).

Calcot Manor The Perfect Day Shower & Bath Gel is good but not great. The shower gel is gentle enough, and it smells citrusy, but I doubt this is anyone’s favourite fragrance. This shower gel is available as 300ml (Tesco).

I will continue to use both shower gels. I’d pick up the Kirstie Allsopp shower gel again, but I’m not repurchasing this Calcot Manor shower gel.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé. This product contains chamomile, sweet fig and vitamin E, and it promises to soothe and to hydrate skin. I’ve been using this product for about a week now, and here’s what I think.

This body cream was a nice surprise! It has a gorgeous, fresh fragrance, and I love the rich and nourishing formula. It leaves my skin feeling super soft – even after a long day. Upon application, the body cream is a little sticky, but it only takes 2 minutes for the skin to absorb it.

I’m very happy with this product! If you’re interested, Calcot Manor The Lazy Evening Moisture Soufflé is available as 250ml at Tesco.

Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub. I found this body scrub in my stash, and I thought it looked promising, so I decided that I should (finally) give it a try. And that’s what I did!

I think Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub is simply amazing. I’m enjoying the classic Sanctuary Spa fragrance, and I love the runny-yet-gooey texture of the scrub. What else? The scrub is easy to use, and it exfoliates my skin without being harsh. Another big plus is that the scrub doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. This is an outstanding product!

Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub is available as 500ml. I’ve also seen a moisturiser from this collection, and I’m keen to give that product a try too!

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Silky Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 vanilla-scented products I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel is simply lovely. It feels cleansing, yet not drying, and the sweet and warm vanilla fragrance is simply wonderful. I love it!
YR Vanilla
Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion is just as amazing as the shower gel. This body lotion is very hydrating, and the dreamy vanilla fragrance lingers quite a bit.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Shower Gel & Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion are available as 50ml (seasonal), 200ml and 400ml.

Treacle Moon Her Mango Thoughts

Hi there! Today’s post is about a shower gel – Treacle Moon Her Mango Thoughts Shower & Bath Gel.

Since I liked or loved almost every single Treacle Moon shower product that I’ve tried so far, I had no doubt that I’d be a fan of this one.

And now that I’ve gotten around to give it a try, I’m happy to report that I like this shower gel too. It doesn’t smell of pure mango, but more like a mango-based multi fruit juice. It’s not what I expected, but the fragrance is lovely, sunny and very fruity – what’s not to like?

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this shower gel. If you’re looking for a fruity shower gel that takes you back to warm summer days, you should try this one!

Treacle Moon Her Mango Thoughts Shower & Bath Gel is a limited edition. It’s available as 500ml for £3. I paid £2 (special offer).

The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Shower Gel & The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiaré Shower Gel

Hi there! Happy Friday! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up when they went on sale – The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig and The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiaré. To be perfectly clear, I’m not the biggest TBS fan, but these shower gels were cheap, so I thought I should give them a try.

The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig is very nice. I thought it would be a random filler shower gel, but I was so wrong! This shower gel smells incredibly beautiful and natural. The fragrance is green, but also warm. It’s… wow!

The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiaré is just as amazing! I love tropical floral fragrances, and this one’s right up my alley. I think the tiaré fragrance in this shower gel is extremely well done, and I’m enjoying it very much.

I’m blown away by these 2 shower gels! They smell amazing, and they’re gentle on the skin. I wish I had discovered them sooner! The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig and The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiaré are available as 250ml. I paid £3 for the fig shower gel, and £2 for the tiaré shower gel.

Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower & Bath Gel.

It’s been quite hot ☀️ 🥵 since last Friday, so I thought I could try another refreshing shower gel.

And since I’m already using 2 Treacle Moon shower gels at the moment, I thought I might as well make it 3!

So how’s the shower gel? I like it a lot! It’s a great shower gel that wakes you up in the morning, and the fresh and green ginger fragrance is perfect in this hot wearther.

My husband’s enjoying this shower gel too, so I’m happy to say this one will be repurchased next summer!

Treacle Moon One Ginger Morning Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml for £3. I paid £1.50 (special offer, Tesco).

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. 😊
