NSPA Grapefruit & Orange Bath & Shower Gel, NSPA Green Tea & Aloe Vera Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up at my local Asda – NSPA Grapefruit & Orange Bath & Shower Gel and NSPA Green Tea & Aloe Vera Bath & Shower Gel. I love oranges, grapefruits, green tea and aloe, so I thought these would be perfect for me. Here’s what I think:

NSPA Grapefruit & Orange Bath & Shower Gel is disappointing. It’s like a really bad orange soda. I can’t imagine anyone would enjoy this odd fragrance in a shower gel. I think this is another shower gel that will end up as hand wash.

NSPA Green Tea & Aloe Vera Bath & Shower Gel is nice. It smells green and refreshing with a hint of sweetness. I’m glad I bought this one. I know I’ll enjoy it over the coming weeks.

NSPA Grapefruit & Orange Bath & Shower Gel and NSPA Green Tea & Aloe Vera Bath & Shower Gel are available as 400ml each for £3 each. I paid £1.50 each (half price offer).

Battle Of The Peachy Shower Gels – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Yellow Peach Shower Gel vs. NSPA Deliciously Soft And Sweet Peach Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about two peachy shower gels – Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Yellow Peach Shower Gel and NSPA Deliciously Soft And Sweet Peach Shower & Bath Gel.

Let’s start with this Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Yellow Peach Shower Gel which was a free gift with purchase. Unfortunately, I didn’t like this shower gel at all. It smelled terribly cheap and chemical. This one ended up in the hand wash dispenser in the guest bathroom.

NSPA Deliciously Soft And Sweet Peach Shower & Bath Gel is alright but nothing special. This shower gel smells more of peach skin than the actual fruit. I’ll keep using it for a few more days, but I’m sure that this shower gel will end up as hand wash too.

Whilst NSPA’s shower gel is much better than Yves Rocher’s attempt at a peach shower gel, I don’t care for either product.

Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Yellow Peach Shower Gel is available as 400ml, and NSPA Deliciously Soft And Sweet Peach Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml.

NSPA Deep Cleansing Clay Mask With Kaolin & Seaweed

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Deep Cleansing Clay Mask With Kaolin & Seaweed. This face mask promises to draw out impurities, and to detoxify and balance skin for a refreshed and revitalised feeling.

This face mask is aimed at people with oily or combination skin. And according to NSPA, it’s cruelty-free and suitable for vegetarians. Using the mask is easy – leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s quite good. It certainly feels cleansing and refreshing, and it made my skin look nice and clear. My husband also liked this mask, so this is one I’ll buy again.

NSPA Deep Cleansing Clay Mask With Kaolin & Seaweed is available as 15ml for £1.50. I paid £1 (special offer).

NSPA Pink Grapefruit Raspberry Face Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face wash I picked up at my local Asda for £2 (clearance) – NSPA Fruit Extracts Pink Grapefruit Raspberry Face Wash.

This face wash contains natural fruit extracts, retinyl palmitate (WOW!) vitamin E, as well as biotin, and it’s aimed at people with normal, dry or sensitive skin.

I’ve been using this face wash (in conjunction with a konjac sponge) for a month now, and I think it’s quite good. It’s a gentle cream wash, so it’s great for dry and sensitive skin types.

Occasionally, I also use this product as a cream cleanser (with the help of a hot cloth) to remove my make-up – and it works well. It’s not perfect at removing eye make-up but that was expected.

All in all, this is a decent face wash. I would recommend it to people with normal, dry or sensitive skin. NSPA Fruit Extracts Pink Grapefruit Raspberry Face Wash is available as 150ml at Asda.

NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub.

I love NSPA products in general, but I can’t with those terribly long names…

Anyhoo, let’s focus on the product! I’ve been using this shower scrub on and off for 2 weeks now, and I think it’s actually very good!

This scrub is packed with small exfoliating particles. This means that it’s quite effective. However, the scrub isn’t too harsh, and I think it’s definitely OK to use it on a daily basis. I’m using this scrub 2-3 times per week, and I think this is perfectly sufficient for me.

The cherry fragrance is sweet and natural. I’ve come across quite a few nasty cherry fragrances over the past 20+ years, so this one was a very nice suprise!

I’m enjoying this body scrub a lot, and I will use it up for sure! NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub is available as 225ml. I paid 79p (Home Bargains).

NSPA Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream And Body Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA products I picked up from my local Asda’s clearance shelf – NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream and Body Oil. I picked these up for half price – that’s £1.50 each instead of the usual £3. The NSPA collection is receiving a makeover, and it appears a number of products will go – including these 2. Onto the actual review!

NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream has a very old-fashioned fragrance. I don’t hate it, but I don’t care for it. I don’t think this product qualifies as a shower cream. It feels nice whilst it’s being lathered up, but as soon as I get out of the shower, my skin feels dry and in need of a moisturiser.

NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Body Oil is much nicer. This is a light oil that feels non-greasy. I like it a lot! The fragrance is also much better – it’s fresher and lighter. I’m enjoying it very much.

In summary, I wouldn’t recommend the shower cream, but I would recommend the oil! Have you tried these products or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading! 🙂

NSPA Fresh Cool Crisp Refreshing Apple Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Fresh Cool Crisp Refreshing Apple Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve used and reviewed numerous NSPA products over the past 4 years, but there are a few products which I haven’t managed to try. This shower gel was one of these products.

But I’ve now given this shower gel a try, and here’s what I think…

Alrighty, let’s start with the fragrance. I think the apple fragrance is extremely basic und not very natural. It’s not terrible, but it’s not very enjoyable either.

There’s more. I think this shower gel isn’t very refreshing. And I’ve noticed that it dries out my skin.

I won’t continue to use this shower gel on my body. This stuff is going in the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen!

NSPA Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA‘s Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Shower & Bath Gel.

I had this shower gel stashed away for quite some time, and I almost forgot about it. But about 2 weeks ago I did an inventory of one of the boxes under the bed (don’t ask…), and this shower gel was one of a few summery shower products that I moved to the bathroom. 🙂

Now… is this shower gel any good? Yes, it is. The lemon fragrance is tangy and refreshing. It smells just as awesome as Original Source’s lemon shower gel. I also love the sherbet-like texture which adds to the cool feel of the shower gel.

I know NSPA‘s Sharp And Uplifting Lemon Shower & Bath Gel will serve me well this summer. If you’d like to try this shower gel, it’s available as 500ml for £3. I bought it when Asda ran a 3 for £4 promotion.

Have you tried this product? Have you tried any of the other NSPA shower gels? If so, which ones are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!
