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!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Shower & Bath Gel And Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! Not too long ago I saw NSPA’s Clementine products on sale at my local Asda. I remembered I had the shower gel and the body mist in my stash, and I thought it’s time to (finally) use and review these products. 🙂

NSPA’s Luscious Fresh Clementine Shower & Bath Gel is very nice! It feels sunny and refreshing, and I think NSPA captured the orange and green nuances of clementines perfectly. I’m also happy to report that this shower gel doesn’t feel drying at all. Well done, NSPA!

NSPA’s Luscious Fresh Clementine Fragrance Body Mist is just as nice as the shower gel. Sure, it’s a simple fragrance. However, I think it’ll be great for the warmer months ahead of us. I’ll keep this one in the fridge so whenever I feel like it, I can use it to douse myself in a cool, juicy and fresh mist.

NSPA’s Clementine Shower & Bath Gel is available as 500ml for £3, NSPA’s Clementine Fragrance Body Mist is available as 200ml for £3.
