Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I found in my stash – Original Source Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil Moisturising Shower and Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower. These are from a little while ago, and they’re also discontinued, but these are back-up bottles that I bought because I liked those shower gels. But do I still like them?
Let’s start with Original Source Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil Moisturising Shower! This shower gel is really lovely – it smells like candy cherries – it actually reminds me of Haribo’s Happy Cherries. 🍒 Very nice! I also like that it’s super gentle on the skin. I wouldn’t say it”s moisturising, but it’s much, much gentler than most shower gels.
Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower is absolutely lovely too. What a wonderfully refreshing shower gel! I adore the tart and zesty grapefruit (and lemon) fragrance. This shower gel is a real treat! I have a few more of these – and they’re definitely stash-worthy!
Original Source Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil Moisturising Shower and Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower are (or were) available as 250ml each, and I paid £1 each (they were from Poundland or B&M).

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in July. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can click here if you’d like to read my latest face mask reviews. Now let’s look at the big bottles…
1 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – a holy grail product. I have plenty of back-up!
2 Original Source Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil Moisturising Shower – this is a nice one! I’d like to buy it again, but it’s been discontinued. I think I’ve seen one more bottle in my stash.
3 Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower – a really nice shower gel too. Also discontinued. I do have some back-up though.
4 M&S Fragrance Collection Mimosa & Bergamot Eau De Toilette – this is a decent fragrance, and it was nice while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
5 Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak (travel size) – I liked this bath soak a lot, and I’d like to buy the full size.
6 Revlon Nail Care Base Coat – a decent base coat. I would buy it again.
7 Palmolive Aromatherapy Absolute Relax – one of my holy grail shower products. My husband loves it too. I will buy this one again, no doubt!
8 Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa – one of my old favourites. I have one more bottle in my stash.
9 Imperial Leather Beautiful Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – I like this one a lot too. Also discontinued. 😦 But I have one more bottle.
10 Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner – this is a very basic toner. I won’t buy it again.
11 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles – this is a nice cream wash. Definitely repurchase-worthy.
12 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Facial Serum With SPF 25 – this is a very good serum which I aim to buy again soon!
This is everything I emptied in July. Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch, and thanks for reading! x

Hi there! Today’s post is about some of Original Source’s fruitiest shower gels: Original Source Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange Daily Scrub and Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil. These shower gels are perfect for summer because they’re fruity, juicy and truly refreshing. I think they’re absolutely fantastic and I’ll buy them all again. But let’s take a closer look…
I love all things grapefruit, so I was happy to see that Original Source finally did a Pink Grapefruit shower gel. It’s incredibly refreshing and it smells of juicy grapefruits. Yummy!
The new Blood Orange Daily Scrub is absolutely fantastic. It makes my skin feel really soft, and the fresh and zingy scent of this shower scrub is truly delightful. This is definitely going to become a new beauty staple for me.
The Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil shower gel was a very pleasant surprise after the other three skin quench shower gels left me disappointed. This Blackcurrant & Moringa shower gel contains moisturising oil beads that really work, and it smells like sun-drenched blackcurrants.
Original Source shower gels are approved by the Vegan Society. The skin quench shower gels and the scrubs are quite new and they’re £2.69 each, the regular shower gels are £2.20 each. However, if you shop around, you can find half price or BOGOF deals easily. At the moment the big four supermarkets, Wilko and the two big drugstores all have some kind of deal.
