Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extract Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s review is about Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion. I’ve had these products for a while, but just a few days ago I spotted a 4-piece Boots Extracts shower gel set which contained this satsuma shower gel (plus mango, strawberry and coconut). So I thought I should try and review these satsuma products!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash is lovely. It smells tangy and fresh. It’s the perfect early morning shower gel that wakes you up! I also like that the shower gel doesn’t feel drying. Nice one, Boots!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion is very well done. It smells just as refreshing as as the shower gel. And the formula is lovely too. It feels rich, but it’s not sticky, so it’s great for when you’re in a hurry but you still want to moisturise your skin.

I think that Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma is one of the nicest limited editions Boots ever did! I don’t remember how much I paid for these products, but if Boots brings these beauties back for Christmas 2018, I’ll buy another satsuma set (or two). 🙂

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Spray & Zingy Satsuma Body Spray

Hi there! I’m still working through my 2015 Christmas toiletries sets, and I realised that I bought a Boots Extracts fragrance set (just like 2016…). The set was £3 and it contained 3 fragrances (70ml each) – and I will review 2 of them today. Now meet Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Spray and Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Spray.

Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Spray isn’t a favourite. The strawberry fragrance isn’t unpleasant, but it smells very generic. I used this body spray once to test it. And now I’ll pass it on to my teenage relative. Actually, my relative will receive 2 of these sprays because both the 2015 set and the 2016 set contained a strawberry body spray. If you’d like to try this product, it’s £3.50 for a 150ml bottle at Boots.

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Spray is a limited edition fragrance from 2015. Whilst I think it’s not that special, I have to say that it does smell pleasant. That’s because the satsuma fragrance isn’t just a one-dimensional fruity fragrance. It smells like a mix of satsumas, satsuma peel and orange flower. Quite nice, actually.

Have you tried Boots Extracts products? If so, which products do you love the most? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!
