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.

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!

Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel.

Since the Treacle Moon shower gels that I’ve previously tried were pretty amazing, I was looking forward to give this one a try. And I’m glad I did!

I love the thick gel. It cleanses my skin properly, but it also feels gentle – just like a shower cream.

The fragrance is best described as yummy. It smells like a mix of caramel and Cadbury Crunchie’s honey and toffee core. It smells amazing. 🙂

I think this is another wonderful shower gel from Treacle Moon. I can definitely see myself repurchasing it.

Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml. I paid £2 (save 1/3 offer).

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Nourishing Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 products which I’ll miss dearly when they’re gone – Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter.

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream is one of the best shower products I’ve used all year. It cleanses my skin, but it also makes my skin feel super soft. I love it! The oriental fragrance is simply gorgeous – it’s dark, feminine and positively addictive. This product deserves 11 stars!

Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter with sweet almond oil, shea butter and argan oil is a perfect 11 too! This body butter is one of the richest body butters that I’ve ever tried. However, this body butter is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. The fragrance is 100% gorgeous and longlasting. This body butter is simply perfect!

Unfortunately, Sanctuary Spa Kyphi 24-Hour Moisturising Shower Cream & Sanctuary Spa Kyphi Nourishing Body Butter have been discontinued and replaced with lesser products. 😦

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.

100% Cruelty-Free – Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash. I’ve already reviewed Dr. Organic’s Aloe Vera hair products, and if you’d like to read that review, click here. Now, without further ado, onto the body washes!

Dr. Organic‘s Aloe Vera Body Wash is average. The faint aloe vera and lemon fragrance isn’t unpleasant, but very forgettable. I’ve noticed that this shower gel isn’t very cleansing. It’s definitely not for your post-workout shower…

Dr. Organic‘s Manuka Honey Body Wash is disappointing. Whilst it smells wonderful from the bottle, the fragrance changes as soon as the shower gel hits the skin. I’d describe the fragrance as… warm plastic! And just like the aloe vera shower gel, this one isn’t very cleansing. If you’re sweaty, use something else!

All in all, I wouldn’t recommend these shower gels. I wanted to love them, but they’re not great. If you’d like to try them, Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash & Manuka Honey Body Wash are available as 75ml and 250ml. I paid £1 each for the small travel size bottles (special offer).
