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.

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.

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!
