Hi there! Today’s post is about all the stuff I finished in March. Let’s take a look at all the products I said goodbye to. 🙂
1 Jil Sander Simply Elixir Rich Body Cream – a very nice body cream. This one was part of a gift set. I don’t think I’d buy a full-size body lotion, but if I can get my hands on another gift set for a decent price, I’d be happy to have it! By the way, if you’re looking for a lady’s version of Dior Fahrenheit, you might want to check out this fragrance!
2 Sanctuary Spa Hand Cream – just lovely! I have a few more tubes in my stash.
3 Patisserie De Bain Pineapple Paradise Hand Cream – actually a really good hand cream. Repurchase-worthy.
4 Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub – a decent face scrub. I have at least one more tube in my stash.
5 Carex Nourishing Shower Cream – a nice shower cream. Repurchase-worthy!
6 Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Fragrance-Free Non-Greasy Lotion – a really good body lotion for very dry skin. I might buy it again.
7 Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apricot – what a lovely peeling gel! I have another one (different scent) in my stash
8 Imperial Leather SkinKind Raspberry & Lime Blossom Enriching Body Wash – I liked this shower gel, and I have one more bottle in my stash.
9 Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk – a wonderful shower gel. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. I think I have another bottle though!
10 Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Revitalising Jam Face Mask – this is a decent scrub mask. I would buy it again!
11 Oriflame M by Marcel Marongiu – what a lovely, unique fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition from eons ago…
12 Pantene Pro-V Miracles Grow Strong Biotin + Bamboo Shampoo & Conditioner – such a nice surprise! I will buy this conditioner (and the matching shampoo) again. My husband is enjoying the leftover shampoo too (once I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching leftover shampoo on to my husband).
13 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Wash – a lovely shower gel. Unfortunately discontinued.
I’m glad I finished a few more shower gels which were in various states of empty. I also used a bunch of single use face masks. I think I did well again in March! I hope April will be good too. I know I’ll finish 2 more products this weekend.

Hi there! After yesterday’s post about my favourite face products from 2020, today’s post is about my favourite non-face products from 2020 – so that’s hair and body products, but also lip products which I didn’t want to lump together with the creams and serums. Let’s start with hair, then onto lips, then shower products, fragrances and, finally, body lotions and creams.
Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
Herbal Essences did an amazing job with their bourbon and manuka honey products.
L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner
Triple Resist is one my favourite hair care combos from L’Oréal.
NYC Kissgloss 534 Tribeca Tangerine
NYC’s banana-flavoured lipgloss was one of the big surprises of 2020. I love this lipgloss!
Astor Rouge Couture Lipsticks
Astor’s Rouge Couture lipsticks were simply wonderful.
Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 250 Stare At Me
Rimmel did a fabulous job with this lipstick. I love it!
L’Oréal Color Riche 231 Sepia / Silk
L’Oréal’s silk lipstick was a lovely surprise.
Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude
Manhattan’s soft nude lipgloss is an all-time favourite. I’ve gone through 2 or 3 of these already.
Sanctuary Spa Mandelular Sensuous Body Scrub
Whilst the photo is one of the worst photos I took last year, the actual product is one of the stars of 2020.
Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk, Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet Shower Gel With Rooibos Tea, Rose And Almond
Palmolive’s black orchid and So Sweet shower gels are long-term body care favourites.
Palmolive Aroma Moments So Relaxed Aromatic Bath Foam
Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist
Palmolive’s So Relaxed bath is truly outstanding.
Yves Rocher’s Monoï body mist smells like the most wonderful summer holiday.
Yves Rocher Collection Été
Another amazing Yves Rocher fragrance!
M&S The Fragrance Collection Vanilla & Woods Eau De Toilette
I didn’t expect an M&S fragrance to be in my best of 2020 post – but this beautiful fragrance is a firm favourite, and I already repurchased it.
Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk Eau De Parfum
I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Refreshing Body Spritzer
Lucy B.’s fragrances are amazing – this one is no exception.
I Love…’s raspberry and blackberry body mist smells like sugar-free fruit jelly. Delicious!
Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream
Nivea Soft Cream is now a firm beauty favourite!
Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel
Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion
Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion With Delicate Oat
Vaseline’s cocoa oil gel is amazing for dry skin.
Vaseline’s essential healing lotion is awesome too.
And Garnier’s oat body lotion is simply lovely.
These are my favourite non-face products from 2020. Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 😘

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels which are old favourites of mine – Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet Shower Gel With Rooibos Tea, Rose And Almond. I found these gems in my stash just a few weeks ago. I remembered how much I used to love these, so I wanted to retry them right away!
Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk is amazing! It smells of velvety ochid petals mixed with sweetness and femininity. Wow! Simply dreamy!
Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet Shower Gel With Rooibos Tea, Rose And Almond is another stellar product. I love the rose, almond and tea fragrance. It’s sweet, it’s floral, and it smells like… you’re being hugged by sunlight. Truly awesome stuff!
I love these shower gels! Palmolive Naturals Irresistible Softness Black Orchid & Moisturising Milk Shower Milk and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet Shower Gel With Rooibos Tea, Rose And Almond are available as 250ml each. These fragrances have been discontinued, but I’ve actually seen these at discount stores very recently (and I stocked up).

Hi there! I know many people are obsessed with expensive shower and bathing products that promise a spa experience at home – and I can’t blame them. 😉 But I think that some of the drugstore products are just as good! Just like everyone else, I too love to try different products all the time, but one brand I always return to is Palmolive. I just love their products because they’re gentle, they smell nice (Did I mention that I am also obsessed with scents?) and they’re good value!
My skin is quite sensitive, so I like shower milks and shower creams that don’t leave my skin feeling tight and dry the moment I step out of the shower. And Palmolive shower creams are just great in this regard. My current favourites from left to right: Palmolive Irresistible Softness with Black Orchid and Moisturising Milk, Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond and Moisturising Milk, and Palmolive Feel Passionate with Passion Flower and, you guessed it, Moisturising Milk.
I’m not going to rave about how gently these shower milks cleanse my skin, but I’m going to rave about their scents! 🙂 So, here we go. Palmolive Black Orchid joined the brand’s standard assortment a couple of years ago – and I’m glad it did. I would describe its scent as a feminine, warm and velvety veil of black orchid and cashmere. Heavenly!
Palmolive Almond is a classic that has been around for decades. It’s got the most wonderful sweet almond blossom scent I have ever encountered. It’s divine! Now, Palmolive, can we please have the matching almond body lotion back?
My third favourite is a limited edition, Palmolive Passion Flower. It’s no longer available at the big supermarkets or drugstores, but some of the discount stores still have it. The scent is really gorgeous – it’s youthful, floral and fruity and it bursts with sweet juiciness. Yummy!
If these shower milk are not already part of your shower routine, then you need to give them a try! They’re usually £1 (or less) as they’re always on special offer somewhere. Happy lathering! 😀
