The Battle Of The 100% Cruelty-Free + Made In The UK Strawberry-Scented Body Mists – Anovia Light & Refreshing Strawberry & Kiwi vs. MPM Just Fruit Simply Strawberry

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!

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!

Superdrug Strawberry & Raspberry Fruity Body Spritz

Superdrug Strawberry and Raspberry Fruity Body SprayHi there! I went a little overboard with my Superdrug shopping again.

This time Superdrug’s Strawberry & Raspberry Fruity Body Spritz was among the random items I felt I had to have.

I’ve been looking for the perfect juicy berry fragrance for years. I can’t bring myself to love the fruity scents from The Body Shop (too synthetic) or Yves Rocher (too sweet), so I was hoping this one could be it.

Well, it’s not. For once, the strawberry note is too pronounced while the raspberries remain in the background.

I also hoped the scent would be at least somewhat fresh – but it’s quite sweet, so it wouldn’t be a good idea to wear it on hot summer days.

On a positive note, the scent lasts for a few hours and it’s a lot less synthetic than The Body Shop’s fruity body mists.

If you are looking for an inexpensive and sweet berry fragrance that’s also cruelty-free, Superdrug’s Strawberry & Raspberry Fruity Body Spritz (100 ml) can be yours for £1.99 only.
