Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post. I picked my TOP 3 and all the honourable mentions from the products I’ve reviewed this past month. And here they are.
3rd place – Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream
I love Cellio’s honey face cream. I’m using it twice a day, and it serves me very well!
Runner-Up – Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower
WINNER – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist
Sanctuary Spa’s Mestizo shower gel is the bomb! I’m so sad it was a limited edition.
Superdrug’s Blossom body mist smells like Thierry Mugler’s Alien – simply unbeatable!
I loved so many products in March, and this month’s honourable mentions are some of the best ones ever! I love Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Boots Vitamin C Sheet Mask With Added Vitamin C is a new beauty staple. Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Body Mist is a new love.
Radox Perky Peach shower gel is another fabulous beauty find, while Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime are some of my favourite bath salts ever!
Have you tried any of these products of would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! x

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist and Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Eau De Toilette. How did I discover these? Well, I remembered that Mugler Alien (now under L’Oréal) smells super weak compared to Thierry Mugler Alien (back then under Clarins). So I googled to see if other Alien fans would agree, and I found dozens of reviews saying that Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom smells like Alien! Since these Superdrug products were super cheap, I picked these up on my next visit to Superdrug, and I’ve given them a try!
And now I can say that Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist smells just like Alien. Oh! My! Gawd! It’s “just” a body mist, and I started with 2 sprays on my wrist – so I would be able to take regular sniffs with a “clean” nose. After the initial 30 seconds – when it smells like Alien mixed with hair spray – this body mist turns into “proper” Alien. Just wow! It even has the same slightly dirty drydown. It’s incredible!
Now, please keep in mind, this is just a body mist, so it won’t last all day – but neither does L’Oréal’s Alien. And this body spray is only £3.99 for 100ml (even if there is no special offer, although I bought them for 2 for £6, I believe), so you can afford to spray away! My husband loves this body mist, and he agrees that it smells just like Alien. I’ve been through several bottles of Thierry Mugler’s Alien before the reformulation and through a number of Alien limited editions over the past 15 (or so) years, and you can trust me about this one. But even if you don’t, you can visit Superdrug’s product page where you will find dozens of reviews from women saying the same thing. I love to douse myself in this body mist – and so does my husband – I can’t blame him! Thank you, Superdrug! 11 stars!
Onto Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Eau De Toilette! Based on the body mist, I had high hopes for the EdT, but the EdT isn’t a carbon copy of Alien. It doesn’t even smell similar to Alien. I do like this fragrance, because it has a sharp jasmine note. But I do recognise it for what it is – a cheap fragrance which would be good for a teenager who’s done with Impulse sprays and wants to “move up” to drustore fragrances. I think this EdT is also nice enough for the office, or if you want a fragrance and either can’t or don’t want to spend a lot of money – the 30ml is £5, and the 100ml (which I have) is £6.99. I actually bought the 100ml for £4.66 on a special offer – so cheap!
Based on my experience I’d recommend the body mist to Alien lovers. If you want to give both products a try, at the moment, Superdrug actually does run a promotion on these (but I have no idea when the promotion ends and what’s next) – the 100ml body mist is £2.65 (go, grab a bottle…), the 30ml EdT is £3.32, and the 100ml EdT is £4.65. Also – these products are vegan and certified cruelty-free – they carry the Leaping Bunny logo! And one more thing… matching body products are also available. I haven’t tried any of them as of now, so I can’t (yet) comment on how good or similar to Alien they are.
