Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Radox shower gels that have been sitting in my stash for quite some time – Radox Revive with mandarin & lemongrass and Radox Uplifting with pink grapefruit and basil. Since these two shower gels sounded summery and refreshing, I thought now’s the right time to (finally) give them a try!
Radox Revive (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Revived) with mandarin and lemongrass is quite nice. I would describe the fragrance as a refreshing and tangy citrus fragrance! Whilst I expected a considerably sweeter fragrance, I’m not disappointed. I like the fresh fragrance!
Redox Uplifting (which has been renamed and is now called Radox Feel Uplifted) with pink grapefruit and basil is very nice. The grapefruit note is very authentic whilst (fortunately) the basil note is hardly noticeable. This is a great shower gel. I really enjoy using it!
I know that I’ll buy these 2 Radox shower gels again, and I would recommend them to everyone! Radox shower gels are available as 250ml, and they’re usually around £2 each, but you can find them for £1 each as well (Poundstores, half price promotions, etc.).

Hi there! Today’s post is about I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie and I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer. I’m not entirely sure where and when I bought these products. But I’m sure I’ll be able to finish them this summer. Now onto the review!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is a true 2 in 1 product. It exfoliates my skin nicely, but it’s also a proper shower product. And it smells fruity and juicy. It’s really nice!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer turned out to be just as nice. Initially I thought this body spray was OK, but after a few days I started to like it. The mango & papaya fragrance is quite well done. It’s fruity and juicy, but it’s not cloyingly sweet. It smells just like… summer!
I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is available as 200ml, I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer is available as 100ml. Superdrug no longer sells I Love…’s Mango & Papaya collection, so I’m not sure where you’d be able to get these products. But there are quite a few bargain stores that seem to stock I Love… products (incl. gift sets) from time to time, so don’t ignore those stores. 🙂

Hi there! I haven’t reviewed any Original Source products in a while. But now’s the time to look at a few fruity shower gels. Meet Original Source Plum & Blackcurrant, Raspberry And Cocoa, and Wild Cherry And Nettle. These shower gels are suitable for vegans – they’re approved by The Vegan Society.
Original Source Plum & Blackcurrant is surprisingly refreshing. I thought the plum fragrance would make this shower gel a bit too sweet for summer – but I was wrong. The fragrance actually reminds me of blackcurrant cough lozenges – in a good way. It smells like blackcurrant juice and green currant buds. So yes, this one is definitely suitable for warm summer days.
Original Source Raspberry And Cocoa isn’t my favourite. This fragrant combination smells a bit weird. It’s not bad, but it’s not what I expected – and I can’t smell any raspberries or cocoa. I don’t really care for this shower gel (and neither does my husband), so this one might end up in the hand wash dispenser.
Original Source Wild Cherry And Nettle is another nice surprise. And it’s another shower gel that reminds me of cough lozenges – cherry-flavoured ones, of course. The fragrance isn’t as strong as the plum & blackcurrant fragrance, but it’s definitely yummy!
The RRP for 250ml Original Source shower gels is usually around £2 – but you can find these shower gels for £1 (Poundland and the likes) or less (special offer).
Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it. 🙂
