NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel, NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA shower gels which, I think, sound perfectly delicious – NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the big 500ml shower gels are £3 each. I paid £2 each (special offer). 🙂 Now onto the reviews!

NSPA Vanilla is a warm, smokey vanilla. The fragrance is rather dense and definitely more suitable for the colder seasons. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it. My husband, however, seems to enjoy it very much, so I’ll let him have it.

NSPA Shea Butter smells… cute and cuddly. I can’t describe the fragrance any better, but I love it. It’s gorgeous! If you’re not already in love with this shower gel, you need to have a sniff the next time you shop at Asda.

Have you tried these shower gels? Or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel, Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about two summer-themed products – NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the fruity body care products (500ml shower gels, 200ml body mists) are usually £3 each. I paid £2 each (2 for £4 promotion). Now onto the review!
NSPA Pineapple
NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel is more like a shower cream. It’s not the most refreshing shower poduct, but it’s not drying which is nice. The fragrance is sweet and exotic – almost like real pineapples. NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist is quite enjoyable as well. The pineapple fragrance isn’t very longlasting, but that’s OK really because this is obviously just a body mist.

All in all, I think these two products are quite reasonable and definitely good value for money. If you’re interested, give these products a sniff the next time you swing by your local Asda store. 🙂

NSPA Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s The Sunniest Juiciest Tantalising Bright Pink Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel.

I’ve had this shower gel in my stash for some time. It’s almost summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try. And now that I’ve used this shower gel for a few times, I’ve fallen in love with it.

Why is this shower gel so amazing? It makes me feel clean and refreshed, but it’s not drying. And the fragrance is… paradise! The grapefruit scent is juicy, fresh, and just so full of live. It’s not a sugary grapefruit fragrance for teenagers. No! It’s the perfect South Florida pink grapefruit fragrance.

NSPA’s Grapefruit Shower & Bath Gel has been discontinued. However, I hope that NSPA will recycle the formula to give us another limited edition grapefruit shower gel.

Have you tried this shower gel? 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 Caramel Chocolate Shower & Bath Gel

nspa caramel chocolateHi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Rich And Velvety Decadent Caramel Chocolate Shower & Bath Gel which I bought last year.

Back then I thought I’d use this shower gel right away, but I had so many part-used bottles that I wanted to finish first. In addition, this one is a 500ml bottle!

And all of a sudden it was summer and I switched to fruity shower products. 😀

But a few days ago I finally started to use this shower gel. And I love it!

The gel itself is quite thick which is nice because I can’t spill it by accident. And I love the shimmering golden brown colour of this shower gel.

But it doesn’t just look chocolatey – it smells chocolatey too! Whilst it’s a caramel chocolate shower gel, the caramel note is quite faint. The rich chocolate aroma is the star of the show, no doubt!

Another thing I like is that this shower gel doesn’t feel drying. It lathers up well, but it’s very gentle! All in all, I think this is a fantastic shower product. I hope NSPA does the same limited edition again next year. If so, I’ll be stocking up!

42 New Products – Asda, Superdrug & Bargain Buys Beauty Haul

Hi there! In the past couple of months I haven’t done that much stocking up on stuff I don’t need. 😀 But I just couldn’t resist temptation (offers) the other day. I went to Asda – and found a few items I had to have. And I placed three Superdrug orders in 24 hours. And then I swung by my local Bargain Buys store… Now here’s what I bought!
NSPA at Asda
NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist (200ml), NSPA Moisturising Shea Butter (200ml), NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel (500ml) and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist (200ml). These products were all on special and they were £2 each.
Haul 6
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel (300ml) and Body Mist (100ml) – these were on special for 75p each! 2 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask tubes (75ml each, there was a buy one get second half price offer – so that’s £3.98 in total for 150ml of product), Tommyguns ‘Leave me in Conditioner’ & Styling Crème (250ml) – I bought this one because it was 70p!
Haul 5
3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Face Masks – 49p each, 3 for 2 offer – so I paid 98p in total for 3 face masks. B. Soft Blendable Kohl Eyeliner 122 Chocolate and 100 Black – these were 90p each. B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick 54 Eton Mess and 186 Rose Quartz. The lippies were £1.80 each. And then there’s the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlight Serum – it was £3.
Haul 7
Superdrug Optimum PhytoBrighter Black Moisturiser and Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. These products are usually £12.99 each – but thanks to a half price offer I paid £6.45 each only.
Haul 3
B. nail polishes were 30p – so I just picked a few randomly – Mulberry, Peach Melba, 3 base coats, Piglet, Minx and Sea Foam.
Haul 4
The day before Superdrug reduced the prices on their B. range dramatically (I think it’s going to be discontinued) was the last day of the 3 for 2 deal on all make-up. I didn’t want to buy anything this time, but MUA nail polishes were 50p only – so I bought 9 polishes for £3 in total. I chose these colours: Red Rose, Leapfrog, Whitewash, Fever Red, Orchid and Pitch Black. I also added two clear polishes to make the most of the 3 for 2 offer. 🙂
Haul 9
I also like to go to Bargain Buys. I always find at least one make-up item or nail polish to buy. This time I bagged 2 NYC nail polish trio packs – they were £1 each. Yes, that’s 6 polishes for £2 in total! The shades in the first set are: I Need A Dollar, Flame The Night and Lavender Cupcake. The shades in the second set are: Love Never Dies, Empire Purple and Perpetual Peony. The picture below is what the trio packs look like. So if you’ve got a Bargain Buys or Poundworld near you, you might want to swing by to check what kind of goodies they’ve got. 🙂
Haul 8
So this is it. Finally! 😀 I didn’t have to buy more skin care, I certainly didn’t need any toiletries, and I don’t even want to mention my nail polish stash (some of the polishes I bought are back-ups of what I’ve already got). But with all those great offers I just couldn’t resist! What can I say? I’m a compulsive bargain hunter! By the way, I only spent just under £44 in total for all of those 42 products – not bad at all! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! ♥

NSPA Rich Body Butter Honey

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Honey Body Butter. NSPA is a UK-based brand that is exclusive to Asda. I’ve reviewed a few different NSPA products before, so have a look if you’re interested.

OK, let’s focus on the actual product review now. 🙂 NSPA’s honey body butter smells sweet and quite honey-like. Sure, it’s obvious it’s not a food. But unlike many other honey-themed products, this body butter doesn’t smell of cheap coconut suntan lotion.
NSPA Honey Butter
The body butter is very rich, so it’s great for dry skin. However, the butter is also quite sticky which means it’s not the perfect body butter for warm summer days. And if you’re generally not OK with sticky body creams, you won’t like this one.

I prefer my moisturisers to be non-sticky, but this body butter is so incredibly moisturising (it’s wonderful!) that I don’t mind the stickiness every once in a while. I think I’ll be using it once a week as a skin treat.

NSPA Rich Body Butter with Honey is available at Asda. At £3 the 200ml tub is reasonably priced. However, keep your eyes peeled for special offers . 🙂

NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel

NSPA Caramel FudgeHi there! About two months ago I bought quite a few NSPA products. I’ve already reviewed the wonderful Orient fragrance, and now’s the time to take a closer look at NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel.

I really like the thick texture of this shower & bath gel because I can’t spill it by accident. And the shimmering gel in golden and caramel hues looks very pretty.

The gel lathers up nicely and it smells absolutely delicious. NSPA did a really good job creating an authentic caramel fudge fragrance.

Another good thing is that this shower & bath gel doesn’t dry out my skin. It really feels rich and velvety – just as it says on the bottle.

It’s too bad I’m only using this product now. It would have been perfect during the colder months…

NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel a limited edition product. It’s only £2 for a huge 500ml bottle. My local Asda has lots of stock left, so yours might too!

NSPA Orient

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Orient fragrance. I’ve been on the hunt (!) for NSPA’s fragrance collection for almost a year. And just a few days ago – when I least expected it – I found exactly one bottle of NSPA’s Orient at my local Asda. Of course, it went straight in my basket. 🙂

Now let’s look at the fragrance. NSPA’s web site says it contains the following fragrant notes: orchids, amber, silk, lily, vanilla, musk and mandarin oil. So is it any good? If you read on, you’ll find out.
NSPA Orient
I think Orient is a beautiful, elegant and grown-up floriental fragrance. It reminds me of all those classic violet and vanilla perfumes. But Orient is more elegant and modern because – instead of violets – it features sensual aromas of orchids on a warm bed of vanilla, amber and musk. Orient is a very enjoyable interpretation of a classic floriental fragrance. Well done, NSPA!

NSPA Orient is available as 50 ml Eau de Toilette. I got my Orient fragrance for £4, but I think the actual RRP is £8. Either way, this one’s a real bargain!

NSPA Haul – Orient Fragrance, Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel, Grapefruit Raspberry Face Scrub, Grapefruit Raspberry Face Wash

Hi there! A few days I picked up a few amazing beauty bargain at my local Asda store: NSPA Orient Eau de Toilette, NSPA Caramel Fudge Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Grapefruit Raspberry Face Scrub and Face Wash. I think all these products were on special – I only paid £10 in total!
NSPA Haul 1
I can’t wait to use the fragrance and the shower gel! The face products will probably be left untested for a little while because at the moment I’m using quite a few different face washes and scrubs and I would really like to empty at least one product before opening another one. But I’m trying my best to get there – and my husband is helping by using one of my face scrubs on a more regular basis. So it shouldn’t be that long before I’ll try the Grapefruit Raspberry face products. 🙂

NSPA Passionfruit Fragrance Body Mist

NSPA PassionfruitHi there! It’s only been a few weeks since I started to explore NSPA’s body care collection. After my positive experience with NSPA’s raspberry-scented products, I wanted to try more of NSPA’s offerings.

I bought different shower & bath gels, body butters and fruity body mists, one of these being NSPA Passionfruit Fragrance Body Mist.

I must say that I am quite pleased with this body mist. The passionfruit scent is actually quite authentic – it’s fresh, juicy, fruity, a bit sweet and a bit tangy, and I’m convinced that I can actually smell a hint of fizziness. 🙂

Another bonus is that this fragrance lasts relatively long – considering it’s ‘only’ a body mist. I could smell it on me for about two hours and it lasted all day long on my scarf. Not bad!

As it’s quite warm at the moment, I’m storing this body mist in my fridge. This means that whenever I want a cool blast of fragrance, I just spritz the body mist onto my skin. This is wonderfully refreshing and I think that, from now on, I should always have a body mist in my fridge. 🙂

I also love the big bottle – that’s 200 ml for only £3. Incredible value!

NSPA Passionfruit Fragrance Body Mist is available at Asda stores. There’s also a matching Bath & Shower Gel (500 ml, £3).
