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!

22 New Products – Home Bargains, Poundworld, Poundland & Asda Beauty Haul

Hi there! If you read my blog, and if you remember this post – you know I’d like to get away from being a beauty and toiletries hoarder. However, I simply can’t resist a bargain when I see one. Now let’s have a look at the new stuff that’s going to be stashed away somewhere at my place…
haul-10
I found these NSPA shower gels at Home Bargains – for 79p each. These are 500ml and they’re normally £3 at Asda. I think these ones are going to be discontinued. 😦 By the way, all NSPA products are made in the UK.
haul-11
Home Bargains also had a few nice and cheap body mists. From left to right: Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Argan & Marula 150ml, Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple 150ml, Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist100ml, NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Body Mist 200ml.

The Dolly’s Mixtures Body Mist was 49p (usually £2 at Asda), the other three body mists were 79p each. I’ve never seen the brand Anovia anywhere before today, so I can’t comment on what their products cost elsewhere, but the NSPA fragrances are usually £3 at Asda. Oh, and all these body mists were made in the UK!

Up next we’ve got Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine shampoo & conditioner. They’re 300ml each and they were £1 each (special offer) at Asda. The next item is NSPA’s Cherry Body Scrub – also from Home Bargains. The 225ml scrub set me back 79p (instead of £3 at Asda). The eyeshadow brush is from Poundworld – of course it was £1.
haul-13
And here’s the actual beauty stuff – 2 Barry M eyeshadows (£1 for the pack of 2), 2 Sally Hansen nail polishes, 2 Max Factor eyeshadows, 2 Max Factor nail polishes, 2 L’Oréal nail polishes and 1 Rimmel nail polish which is a backup. Some of these products came from Poundland, some from Poundworld. All in all I paid £10 in total for all these eyeshadows and nail polishes.

Yes, I stocked up on stuff I didn’t really need. But everything was so cheap. In fact I only paid £19.02 for everything! I live for bargains, you know. Bargain hunting might actually be ma raison d’être. 🙂 Have you done any shopping recently? Any hauls you’d like to tell me about? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for reading!
