Hi there! Today’s post is about Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel and Morrisons Nourish Shea Butter & Honey Extracts Shower Cream. I’m not really a Morrisons shopper, but when I swung by Morrisons the other day, I picked up these 2 shower gels. I’ve already given them a try, and here’s what I think.
Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel was a bit of a disappointment. It smells nice and fresh from the bottle, but it hardly smells of anything as soon as it’s out of the bottle. It also doesn’t produce much of a lather, and it doesn’t make me feel as clean as I’d like to feel. I’m only using this shower gel in the morning because I don’t think it’s good enough for evening use after a long (and potentially sweaty) day. On a positive note, this shower gel is suitable for vegans.
Morrisons Nourish Shea Butter & Honey Extracts Shower Cream isn’t nice. I tried it, and didn’t like it. Tried it once more… still didn’t like it. This shower gel smells very sugary; fragrance-wise there’s not much honey or shea butter. It also doesn’t really lather up – it’s just not great. I’ll be squeezing this one into the hand wash dispenser in the kitchen.
I’m not impressed with these shower gels, and I won’t be rushing out to try more. If you’re interested, Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel and Morrisons Nourish Shea Butter & Honey Extracts Shower Cream are available as 250ml for 95p (although they were 90p when I bought them 2 weeks ago). Both shower gels are certified cruelty-free as they carry THE Leaping Bunny logo!

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Radox shower gels I picked up at a bargain store – Radox Brazilian Fusion with dragonfruit and camu camu berry, and Radox Eastern Spirit with lotus flower and orange blossom.
Radox Brazilian Fusion with dragonfruit and camu camu berry is more of a shower cream than a shower gel. My dry skin loves it! But the fragrance isn’t what I expected. I thought it would smell somewhat tropical or exotic, but it’s more like an old-fashioned white flower fragrance. I do like it, but I don’t love it. And obviously this shower gel isn’t as ‘summery’ as I’d hoped.
Radox Eastern Spirit with lotus flower and orange blossom is just as I remember it. I really like the feminine and exotic floral fragrance. It’s lovely. And just like Brazilian Fusion, Eastern Spirit is more of a shower cream than a shower gel which is very nice!
Whilst I’m not entirely sure about Eastern Spirit (aka Radox Feel Enchanted – which I spotted at my local Sainsbury’s store very recently), I’m pretty sure Brazilian Fusion has been discontinued. But I reckon quite a few bargain stores still have it. I bought both shower gels for £1 each (at my local Poundstretcher store, I believe).

Hi there! Some of you know that I’m a serious toiletries hoarder. However, I’m doing my best to use up as much ‘old stock’ as possible. And that’s why today’s post is about Imperial Leather Tempting Shower Creme with Guava and Lotus Flower, Bewitching Shower Creme with Blackberry Blossom and Wild Fig and Revitalising Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream. Now that’s a lot of bold print, so let’s get started with the actual review.
Guava & Lotus Flower is not my favourite because the scent is a tad too marine and too masculine for my taste. It’s not bad, it’s just that the fragrance doesn’t tickle my fancy. However, this shower cream feels surprisingly moisturising and it is very gentle to the skin.
Blackberry Blossom & Wild Fig smells quite strongly of figs. The warm and sweet fragrance is not for everybody (my husband hates it), but I think Imperial Leather managed to create a very authentic fig scent. This shower cream is just as moisturising as the guava & lotus flower one, but it gets an extra star for being pretty. Why is that? This shower cream contains micro shimmer – bewitching indeed!
Grapefruit & Pomegranate is a nice one. 🙂 I love grapefruits and blood oranges, so I had to have this shower gel. The scent is very realistic and I like it. However, I would have loved it if Imperial Leather had left out the pomegranate.
I believe that these three shower creams have been discontinued. The guava & lotus flower and grapefruit & pomegranate shower creams were briefly available in Imperial Leather’s new slim bottles, but I haven’t seen them in a while. The blackberry blossom & wild fig fragrance is now available as Foamburst.

Hi! A couple of weeks ago the weather changed from spring-like to rainy, cold and grey again.I wanted a little pick-me-up, just something cheap to cheer me up. So I bought these two body washes: Superdrug Orange & Satsuma Shower Gel and Dragonfruit & Vanilla Shower Cream.
The Orange & Satsuma shower gel is refreshing and energising and its sunny and summery scent is just what I wanted. I can see this one becoming a favourite for the summer months ahead.
I was quite pleased with the Dragonfruit & Vanilla shower cream as well. Its scent reminds me of fruity yoghurt. Yum! It’s also quite gentle on the skin. And I’ll be buying this one again for sure.
Superdrug does a 2 for £1.70 deal at the moment – so I will be trying some of the other scents (lemon, shea butter, lime etc…) too.
