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. 🙂

You Need These In Your Life – Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray & Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray

Hi there! Today’s post is about Boots’ Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray & Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray. I’ve already emptied one of these vanilla sprays (I have 3!), and I’m almost halfway through the mango spray. So it really is time for a review! 🙂

Boots’ Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray is gorgeous! It smells exactly like the delicious and divine Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Butter. It’s so good that I could kick myself for not trying it sooner!

Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray is really lovely too. It’s wonderfully sweet and cuddly – just like Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Butter.

I would recommend these 2 body sprays to anyone! They’re available as 150ml for £3.50, which is good value. But on top of that, Boots runs 3 for 2 promotions quite frequently, so there’s no excuse not to stock up! Now go! Buy! 🙂

NSPA Mango Fragrance Body Mist, NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.

NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂

NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!

NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.

I Love… Haul – 8 Products for £1 Each!

Hi there! Today’s post is just a little shopping advice. 😉 OK, here it is! If you love I Love… products, swing by your local Poundland! I was really happy when I found a few I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle body butters the other day – but now I found so much more!

I bought…
– 500 ml I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Shower/Bath Gel (2 bottles),
– 200 ml I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Body Butter,
– 250 ml I Love… Coconut & Cream Body Lotion,
I Love... Haul

– 100 ml I Love.. Mango & Papaya Fragrance Mist,
– 100 ml I Love… Coconut & Cream Fragrance Mist,
– 100 ml I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Fragrance Mist, and
– 100 ml I Love… Cherry Almond Sparkle Fragrance Mist!
I Love... Haul
I won’t touch the Coconut & Cream products because I hate the taste, texture and smell of coconuts. But I know many people who love all things coconut. So the two I Love… Coconut & Cream products I bought will be given to someone who will like and use them. I also have a few (unopened) Cherry Almond Sparkle body butters now. These will also be given away.

So if you’re looking for a few little beauty treats for yourself, keep your eyes peeled the next time you’re at Poundland. Or if you’d like to give someone a really nice beauty hamper – go get a basket and fill it with I Love… products!

I Love… products are £2.99 at drugstores, supermarkets, etc. But Poundland currently stocks the Cherry Almond Sparkle limited edition and a few other lines (which I think are about to be discontinued). I’ll go back to Poundland soon!

Yves Rocher Mango Passionfruit Smoothie Limited Edition Eau de Toilette

YR Mango PassionfruitHi there! Today’s post is another fragrance post. I spotted this Yves Rocher Mango Passionfruit Smoothie Limited Edition Eau de Toilette for just under £3 online. Of course, I had to have it.

So this fragrance contains notes of mango and passionfruit – it’s quite simple really. The scent is sunny, yellow, exotic and fruity and it reminds me of generic fruity shampoos and shower gels, and fruity ice lollies. It’s obviously not a ‘serious’ perfume.

I’ve been using this fragrance for the past three days now and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not for me. A young relative (she just turned 16) will hopefully be happy to take it off my hands. 🙂

I believe that this Yves Rocher Mango Passionfruit Smoothie Limited Edition Eau de Toilette has been discontinued, so you won’t find it easily. However, if you’d like to try it, you should check online.
