Hi there! I haven’t done any product comparisons in a long time. However, I’ve had two untried strawberry-scented body mists in my stash for ages, so I thought it’s time for The Battle Of The 100% Cuelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists! Now meet Anovia’s Light & Refreshing Strawberry & Kiwi Body Mist and MPM’s Just Fruit Simply Strawberry Body Mist.
Let’s start with Anovia’s Strawberry & Kiwi Body Mist! This body mist promises light moisturisation and delicately fragranced skin. Whilst I’m not sure whether this product really moisturises my skin, I think the fragrance is actually quite nice. Thanks to the kiwi note, this body mist is considerably fresher than your average strawberry-scented body mist. Well done, Anovia! Oh, and Anovia’s products are made in the UK, and they’re cruelty-free!
Now let’s take a closer look at MDM’s Just Fruit Simply Strawberry Body Mist! This body mist promises to leave skin smelling delicately fruity – and that’s exactly what it does! I think this strawberry fragrance is also one of the most pleasant ones I’ve ever smelled. I have to admit that I don’t like strawberry-scented products in general. That’s because most of them smell like strawberries that are about to go off. However, this Just Fruit body mist, which was made in England and is cruelty-free, doesn’t have that obnoxious overly ripe stench that almost all the other strawberry-scented products out there have. Well done, MPM!
Now let’s get to the actual comparison! I think that both body mists are really nice. Anovia’s body mist is fresher, so it’s more suitable for the warmer seasons. However, the Just Fruit body mist is sweeter and, obviously, it’s all about strawberries. Both body mists are available in 150ml bottles. The Anovia body mist is £1 at Poundland, the Just Fruit body mist is 79p at Home Bargains.
I don’t think The Battle Of The 100% Cuelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists has a winner. I would definitely recommend both products. If you want a strawberry-scented body spray that smells fresh and authentic, forget about Boots or TBS. Just try these body mists!

Hi there! I got myself a few more I Love… products. These were on sale for half price (£1.49) because I Love… is currently giving it’s entire collection a makeover. I think the line didn’t need updating – not yet. That’s because I Love… manages to capture the scents of fruits and sweets perfectly – which is something that some high street brands struggle with. But I don’t want to complain about ‘other brands’. I’d rather tell you what I Love’s… Strawberries & Cream collection is like! 🙂
I Love… Strawberries & Cream Bath and Shower Cream (available as 500ml) is a gentle bath and shower product. I wouldn’t say it’s moisturising, but it’s certainly not drying. The strawberries & cream fragrance is very sweet!
I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Butter (available as 200ml) is a reasonable moisturiser. It’s not as thick as many other comparable body butters, so it’s a bit easier to apply. But it isn’t as rich as those thick body butters. Still, it’s definitely a good product! The strawberries & cream scent is sweet, intense and longlasting.
I Love… Strawberries & Cream Body Spritzer (available as 100ml) really is the cat’s whiskers – if you’re into strawberry-scented body sprays. On its own this body spritzer isn’t that longlasting (which is OK). But if you spray it on after you’ve used the matching body butter, you’ll be surrounded by the sweet aromas of strawberries & cream for hours – probably even half a day. I think that’s fairly impressive!
I’m not the biggest fan of super sweet scents in toiletries. So I’ll be giving the body spritzer and the bath and shower cream away. I’ll use up the body butter myself (my fingers have been in the tub, so I wouldn’t want to give this one away). But my teenage relative will surely be happy to take the other two products off my hands.
Saying this, if you’re a fan of strawberry-scented toiletries, I would definitely recommend this I Love… collection. The strawberries & cream fragrance is sweet, intense and much more authentic than some high street brands’ (more expensive) strawberry-scented offerings.
The I Love… Strawberries & Cream product line has been updated – the design of the packaging has changed and some products might be replaced. However, the price seems to have remained the same – most I Love… products are still £2.99.
