Café De Bain Softening Shower Gel – Sweet Vanilla Madeleine, Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte

Hi there! Today’s post is about Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes which I picked up a little while ago (Superdrug).

Let’s start with Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine! This shower cream smells like Werther’s Originals Butter Candies. 100% delicious! I also like that this shower cream is not drying at all. This one’s really nice!

Café De Bain Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower cream is just as gentle on the skin. This shower cream smells sweet and fruity, but it’s not sugary-sweet. I’d describe the scent as a mix of milk and red fruits with a hint of coconut.

Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes are available as 250ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.49 each (half price offer). 🙂

Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility Bath Creams

Hi there! Today’s review is about 2 bath products that I’ve been enjoying lately – Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility. Whilst I generally prefer a shower, nothing beats a hot bath on a cold evening. 🙂 Now, without further ado, onto the reviews!
imperial-leather-bath-03
Imperial Leather Paradise Island with peach nectar & vanilla bean smells exactly like peach nectar and vanilla! I love the gorgeous fragrance because it’s beautifully done and because it smells like… summer, sunlight, warmth and pure happiness. Awesome stuff!

Imperial Leather Sea Of Tranquility with sea samphire & marine elements is really good too. The fragrance is definitely marine, but fortunately it doesn’t smell like a bath product for men. Very nice!

All in all, I’m happy with these products and I’d recommend them – especially Paradise Island! 🙂 I bought these two 500ml bath creams for either 99p or £1 each at one of the bargain stores (I think it was Home Bargains).

Pâtisserie De Bain – Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel & Body Souffle

Hi there! Today’s post is about a body care combo that I received as a gift (a gift with purchase that is…) a little while ago – Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel and Body Souffle. These products sound delicious, don’t they?
patissere-de-bain-creme-patissiere-2
Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Shower Gel is alright. It doesn’t feel drying. However, the shower gel doesn’t lather up properly. I think this is rather strange if you consider that the 2nd ingredient is SLS… Anyway, I’m satisfied that this shower gel cleanses my skin well, so I have no reason to complain.

Pâtisserie De Bain Crème Pâtissière Body Souffle is a light moisturiser that goes on easily and doesn’t feel greasy. I’m quite happy with the body souffle. However, I don’t think it would be hydrating enough for people with dry skin.

What about the fragrance? Well, I’ve smelled it before. This fragrance and Baylis & Harding’s Vanilla Sugar Donut fragrance are one and the same! I think that both ‘vanilla sugar donut’ and ‘crème pâtissière’ are suitable names to describe the fragrance.

Whilst I think that these products smell nice and pleasant, I wouldn’t repurchase them because they’re simply not my favourites. If you’re interested, the gift set (which contains a 175ml shower gel, a 175ml body souffle, and a body puff) is £9.99 at Rose & Co. England.

Have you tried these products? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel, NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA shower gels which, I think, sound perfectly delicious – NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the big 500ml shower gels are £3 each. I paid £2 each (special offer). 🙂 Now onto the reviews!

NSPA Vanilla is a warm, smokey vanilla. The fragrance is rather dense and definitely more suitable for the colder seasons. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it. My husband, however, seems to enjoy it very much, so I’ll let him have it.

NSPA Shea Butter smells… cute and cuddly. I can’t describe the fragrance any better, but I love it. It’s gorgeous! If you’re not already in love with this shower gel, you need to have a sniff the next time you shop at Asda.

Have you tried these shower gels? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

Moschino Toujours Glamour Eau De Toilette, Perfumed Bath & Shower Gel, Perfumed Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s review is about Moschino Toujours Glamour Eau De Toilette, Perfumed Bath & Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion. I never really cared for Moschino fragrances. However, Moschino’s Toujours Glamour gift set looked quite appealing – in part because it was half price. So… I bought it!

OK, let’s take a closer look at the fragrance! Moschino Toujours Glamour is described as a light floral fragrance. The fragrance notes are red currant, green violet leaves and cardamom (top notes), lily-of-the-valley, jasmine and bitter almond (heart notes), and heliotrope, benzoin and musk (base notes). Now onto the actual product reviews!

Let’s start with Moschino Toujours Glamour Perfumed Bath & Shower Gel! This shower gel is very nice. It lathers up well, it feels soft and gentle on my skin, and it’s not drying. I like it! I also enjoy Moschino’s Toujours Glamour Perfumed Body Lotion because it’s non-sticky and it moisturises my skin well. The body lotion is quite runny, but that’s not a problem for me. 🙂

And what’s the actual fragrance like? I think Moschino Toujours Glamour Eau De Toilette is a nice enough fragrance. It’s light, it’s floral, it’s powdery, it’s inoffensive, and it’s perfectly forgettable. I think Toujours Glamour would fit in with all these random ‘suitable for office wear’ fragrances that everyone kind of likes but that no one really remembers.

Well, I will use up the shower gel and the body lotion, and I’ll probably continue to use the fragrance on and off for a few weeks before I’ll pass it on to a young relative who, without doubt, will enjoy it much more!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie + Refreshing Body Spritzer

Hi there! Today’s post is about I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie and I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer. I’m not entirely sure where and when I bought these products. But I’m sure I’ll be able to finish them this summer. Now onto the review!

I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is a true 2 in 1 product. It exfoliates my skin nicely, but it’s also a proper shower product. And it smells fruity and juicy. It’s really nice!

I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer turned out to be just as nice. Initially I thought this body spray was OK, but after a  few days I started to like it. The mango & papaya fragrance is quite well done. It’s fruity and juicy, but it’s not cloyingly sweet. It smells just like… summer!

I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is available as 200mlI Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer is available as 100ml. Superdrug no longer sells I Love…’s Mango & Papaya collection, so I’m not sure where you’d be able to get these products. But there are quite a few bargain stores that seem to stock I Love… products (incl. gift sets) from time to time, so don’t ignore those stores. 🙂

Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel

treacle-moon-that-vanilla-moment-2Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon’s That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel. My husband and I call it amazingness in a bottle. 🙂

I’ve been avoiding Treacle Moon products for years. I have nothing against the brand – au contraire! I do think the brand is actually very quirky.

However, I just somehow made the decision to ignore all things Treacle Moon. I guess it was some anti-hoarding impulse that kicked in… 😀

Anyway, now the shower gel is mine, and I’ve given it a try! I think this shower gel is lovely. The vanilla fragrance isn’t a pure vanilla. I think it’s a mix of vanilla and yoghurt with a hint of lemon.

This shower gel smells sweet and refreshing at the same time. And I love the non-drying formula. I’m very happy with this product!

I would recommend this shower gel to everyone! Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml for £3 (Waitrose, Tesco). I paid £2 (save 1/3 promotion).
