My Little Pony Body Mist, Bath & Shower Gel, Leave-In Hair Detangler

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 My Little Pony branded products – My Little Pony Body Mist, My Little Pony Shower Gel, and My Little Pony Leave-In Hair Detangler. These 3 products were made by Kokomo Studio, a UK-based toiletries manufacturer.

Alright, let’s start with the My Little Pony Body Mist! The fruity and powdery fragrance is quite faint, and it evaporates quickly. After a few minutes you won’t be able to smell it on your skin anymore. However, since this body mist is clearly aimed at young girls, the faint fragrance isn’t really an issue because kids can spray away without stinking up their bedrooms with sickly sweet smells. Cool!

So whilst the fragrance isn’t what an adult would expect, I still like the body mist because it feels hydrating. It contains oils, but I promise you that it’s not sticky. I really like to spray it down my back. Just 2 or 3 sprays a couple of times a week – that’s enough to make the skin on my back feel super soft. Great stuff! If you’d like to try this body mist, or if you’d like to buy it as a present for a young relative, the 100ml bottle is £2 at Primark.

Onto the My Little Pony Bath & Shower Gel! I really like this shower gel. It lathers up nicely, and it smells of honeydew melons. It’s also not drying! What’s not to like? I paid 99p for the big 400ml bottle (Home Bargains).

And how’s the My Little Pony Leave-In Hair Detangler? I think this product is quite alright. It’s not ground-breaking, but it’s much better than L’Oréal’s Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray (which I will review shortly). So yes, this dirt-cheap My Little Pony product really helps detangle my hair! In regards to the fragrance, all I can say is that it’s faint and fruity (something like pear and melon…), and that it evaporates quickly. But that’s great because I wouldn’t want my hair detangler to compete with the fragrance I’m wearing. By the way, the 150ml bottle can be yours for £1 (Poundworld).

To make a long story short, I’m happy that I picked up these products. I don’t always make the best decisions when I buy products just because I love the cute packaging. However, these 3 products will serve me well for the next couple of months, so I have no reason to complain at all!

Hi there! I forgot to do a haul post last month, so today I’m showing you what I bought in September and October. 🙂

I bought a set of 5 SpaScriptions face masks – the set was £4.99. I also bought a set of 5 panda face masks – this set was £4.99 as well. TK Maxx

I bought a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Mask (£4), a large 1kg Kallos Multivitamin hair mask (£7.99), and a Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser (£4). TK Maxx

I picked up 3 Superdrug items – a Salted Caramel Shower & Bath Soak (£1.47), a Glycolic Tonic (=toner) and another Glycolic Overnight Peel to replace the one I finished. The last 2 products were £5.99 each, but there was a buy 1 get 1 free offer, so I paid £5.99 in total for the 2 Naturally Radiant products.

I got a few more masks – I couldn’t resist those Hunny Bee grapefruit masks (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks), and I bought another SpaScriptions mask set (£4.99 for a set of 5 masks). TK Maxx

I found an Argan & Marula shampoo and conditioner combo (99p each) and a My Little Pony shower gel (99p). Home Bargains

I got another Superfacialist Rose Hydrate product – I bought the Day Cream (£6.99), and I picked up 2 Sanctuary Spa Being fragrances (£3.75 each). And I spent £6.99 on my Superfacialist Vitamin C + Brighten night cream. TK Maxx, Boots

I bought a big It’s True Moisture Cream (£9.99), a Smack Beauty Firming Night Cream (£3), and another Hunny Bee mask set (£4.99 for 5 masks). TK Maxx

I got my hands on a Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil (£3), and I bought a Sukin Chia Seed Oil+ Foaming Facial Cleanser set. The set was £7.99 which is excellent value because the chia seed oil is usually £14.95 on its own! TK Maxx

My Little Pony Lovely Lip Balms – Fruity Lip Balm & Strawberry Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about the My Little Pony Lovely Lip Balms that I found at Primark. This lip balm duo pack is £1.50, and it contains a fruity lip balm and a strawberry lip balm.

Before I get to the actual review, let me tell you a little about the manufacturer of these lip balms… Kokomo Studio is an Oxfordshire-based company. They manufacture toiletries for lots of different brands, i.e. Hasbro, Disney, Cartoon Network, Tokidoki and many more! I’ve never heard of Kokomo Studio before, but I’m impressed that they’re working with some of the big brands. Thumbs up!

Now onto the review! These two lip balms are very nice and I really enjoy using them. The juicy melon-flavoured Fruity Lip Balm is simply awesome. It tastes like heaven! It’s definitely my new favourite lip balm flavour. The Strawberry Lip Balm tastes of fresh strawberries. The flavour is rather subtle, but that’s perfectly fine.

I think these two lip balms are very nice and I’m even thinking about stocking up! 🙂 Have you tried these lip balms? If so, how do / did you like them? Or will you pick them up the next time you swing by Primark? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Major Boxing Day Haul – 80 New Products (Sanctuary Spa, Boots Extracts, My Little Pony, Pusheen And More)

Hi there! I know I did a haul post only 2 weeks ago. But I also said I’d be doing some serious bargain shopping on Boxing Day. I ordered lots of stuff online, and I also went to a few stores (Boots, M&S, Poundstretcher, B&M). Here’s what I bought!

I found this My Little Pony Lip Balm Trio at B&M Bargains. I don’t know how much it was because…
1. I didn’t care, and 2. I lost the receipt. I guess it was £2.99 – the My Little Pony nail polish set which I bought recently was £2.99, and I just assume these sets would cost the same.
haul-31
My local Poundstretcher had a few different Daily Defense hair products. I bought the Keratin shampoo and conditioner, and the Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner. These are huge 473ml bottles – and they were £1 each. I’ve never seen these before, and my guess is they were discontinued ages ago. But I sniffed the products before I decided to buy them – and these 4 products smelled excellent! And something else – these products were made in Canada – and they’re cruelty-free!
haul-33
Boots Extracts Vanilla House Of Treats was on top my Boxing Day wish list – because my husband loves Boots’ vanilla fragrance very much. I ended up buying 2 of these vanilla sets, each of which contains 200ml shower gel, 200ml body lotion, and 150ml body mist. The Vanilla House Of Treats was half price on Boxing Day – so I only spent £5 per set.
haul-34
Another half price bargain I got my hands on was this cute Pusheen plush cosmetic bag. It was £4 only (Boots). The cosmetic bag is quite big – it’s the biggest cosmetic bag I’ve ever owned. I’ll take measurements… I promise.
haul-35
The next awesome half price set is I Love…’s The Takeaway Trio. It contains 3 chocolate truffle scented products – 500ml bath & shower cream, 200ml body butter and a big 150g bath fizzer. Priced at £4 (Boots) this set is amazing value!
haul-36
Then I spent £2.50 on this Garden Collection Mini Indulgence set (Boots). It contains 5 products – a lavender body wash and a lavender body lotion, a rose body wash and a rose body lotion, and a magnolia body wash. The bottles are 100ml.
haul-37
I found 2 cute Winter Woodland toiletries sets. The first set contains 3 shower gels and 3 body lotions.
haul-38
And the second Winter Woodland set contains 5 body mists. These sets are from Poundstretcher.
haul-39
I also bought a Boots Extracts Body Spray trio. For £3 I got Vanilla (My husband’s favourite!), Strawberry (I’ll give it a sniff, but I think I’ll have to pass this one on to my teenage relative), and Mango (Yummy!). The body sprays are 70ml.
haul-40
My local Marks & Spencer store had a few Pusheen sets for half price too. I bought a nail polish set for £5 and a lip balm duo for £3.

Up next is the My Little Pony Cutie Beauty Bath Set. It was £3.99 at B&M Bargains. It’s that cute that I don’t even care if any of these products are good. 🙂
haul-43
I also got the big Boots Extracts House Of Treats – which contains several shower gels, shower scrubs and body butters. All of these products are travel-sized. This set was £10.
haul-48
And here’s what’s in the House Of Treats – 4 shower gels, 4 body scrubs, 4 body butters. The fragrances are Marshmallow & Peppermint (limited Christmas edition), Coconut, Vanilla & Mango.
haul-44
I was glad that I Love…’s Pamper Me Essentials set wasn’t sold out by Boxing Day. So I got this set for £5.
haul-47
The Pamper Me Essentials set contains a 200ml Raspberry & Blackberry Shower Gel and the matching hand cream, and it contains 2 chocolate Truffle products – a body butter (which I already had in a different set) and a body mist (which was the reason I bought this set – I really wanted this Chocolate Truffle body mist).
haul-45
I bought the Sanctury Spa’s Escape And Let Go set which contains an exfoliating mitt, a 100ml body butter, a full size shower gel and a full-size body scrub. All these products have the same fragrance – White Lily & Damask Rose.
haul-46
I think this Sanctuary set was good value. It was £8! The shower gel and the shower scrub are usually £5.50 each, so I’m really happy with this set.
haul-51
I Love…’s The Big Tub Of Fun was £7.50 only. Yes, I only bought it for the Chocolate Truffle products… anyhoo, this set contains a 500ml Chocolate Truffle shower cream, a bath fizzer, a body puff and three Raspberry & Blackberry products – body butter, hand cream and body mist. I think this set is fantastic considering the low price!
haul-49
I also bought the huge Sanctuary Spa Make A Wish And Let Go box. It was £22.50 and it’s packed with awesome products!
haul-50
What’s in the box? Heel balm, mini shower gel, bath soak, face mask, body butter, shower gel, salt scrub, body scrub and hand cream.
haul-42
And here are two non-beauty items – I bought a My Little Pony ringbinder. It was £1.99. And I got myself a foam sticker set for 99p. I found these items at B&M Bargains. 🙂

So this is what I got myself on Boxing Day (in store and online). It’s quite a lot, I know. But it’s nothing compared to what I’ve bought in the past. This Boxing Day (well, technically it’s last boxing Day already…) I managed to ignore all those half-price make-up and nail polish sets. Well, I got the Pusheen nail polish set but that doesn’t count because it’s Pusheen!

I also spent just over £106 for all of this. And whilst I don’t know where to store all these sets and products, I don’t think I spent too much. I do think that I’m a reasonable Boxing Day shopper because I’ve never been someone who’d spend hundreds of £ on ‘impulse items’ (aka stuff you’ll regret buying – like those 5 evening dresses, or those 9 pairs of red high heels…). Yeah, I had to get that out of my system because I know people who still pay off their 2012 Christmas shopping…

Feel free to comment if you want to. Oh, and congratulations if you’ve made it to the end of the post. 🙂
