Hi there! Today’s post is about two items I found at my local Asda – Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel & Body Mist. These products were on special – they were 75p each. 🙂 So I sniffed the shower gel and decided to pick up both items.
Now let’s have a closer look! Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel is really nice. The piña colada fragrance is quite authentic. I just love the strong pineapple aroma! Another thing I like is that this shower gel is actually more of a shower cream – it’s very gentle on my dry skin!
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Body Mist surprised me. Unfortunately not in a good way. I expected it to smell just like the shower gel. However, this body mist smells like 95% coconut with a hint of a non-descript fruity freshness. I’m not a big fan of coconuts in general, so I’ll be passing this body mist on to a teenage relative of mine. But if you love the smell of coconuts, this product is worth checking out.
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel & Body Mist are exclusive to Asda. The shower gels (300ml) and the body mists (100ml) are usually £2 – but lots of Dolly’s Mixtures products have been on special for quite some time. Let’s hope the product line isn’t going to be discontinued! And if you swing by your Asda soon, don’t forget to give Dolly’s Mixtures Bubble Gum shower gel a sniff!

Hi there! I found these super cute looking Positively Fruity Body Washes at my local Poundland the other day. The tubes were sealed, so I couldn’t have a sniff. But they looked so cute I just had to have them! I found three fragrances – Smells Like Sunny Strawberries, Smells Like Wild Cherries, and Smells Like Tropical Showers.
Before I tell you about the fragrances, let me mention a few things the three body washes have in common: I think they’re quite thin. So be careful to avoid spilling them all over the place. I had to place the tubes in the corner in my shower – upside down! Oh, and the screw lids aren’t very practical…
What I love about these body washes is that they’re not drying at all. They’re gentle and they actually feel moisturising. But unlike some of the heavier shower creams (i.e. Dove), these body washes make me feel refreshed and clean. Thumbs up! And now let’s discuss the fragrances. 🙂
Smells Like Sunny Strawberries smells sweet and fruity – like sunny strawberries! I think the strawberry fragrance is quite authentic and not overpoweringly sweet. Very well done!
Smells Like Wild Cherries is my favourite of the three. It really smells of wild cherries. Again, very authentic. And much better than higher end products costing ten times as much. This one’s going to be a definite spring and summer beauty staple!
Smells Like Tropical Showers is sunny, sweet and tropical! It reminds me of gummy bears and jelly beans – minus the sugar. The coconut isn’t very noticeable (I think that’s great). All in all, a very nice and enjoyable fragrance!
Positively Fruity Body Washes are available as 200ml tubes for £1 each at Poundland. Now my local Poundland has more products from this range – bath salts, cosmetics bags and body lotions. I’ve now bought the body lotions as well, and I’ll try them shortly. So it won’t be long until I tell you what I think about the matching body lotions.
