Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in March. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can read my latest face masks reviews here if you’re interested. But let’s get to the big bottles now!
1 Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel – I love this shower gel, and I’ll buy it again! I also found the matching hand wash at my local B&M Bargains store. Score!
2 Palmolive Gourmet Chocolate Passion Body Butter Shower Cream – I like this one a lot. And yes, I’d like to buy it again.
3 Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner – I enjoyed this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Repurchase? Yes!
4 Beckham Fragrances Signature For Her (x 2)- I love this fragrance! I’m so sad it’s gone. Unfortunately, all the ladies fragrances under the Beckham brand have been discontinued. 😭
5 Skin Food New Zealand Mud Masque – a very nice mud mask! I’d buy it again!
6 M&S Discover Spiced Bergamot– I love this fragrance! I finished this little 30ml, and I’ve already bought a 100ml bottle!
7 M&S Discover Water Jasmine – as above! Love it, and repurchased a big bottle already.
8 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – this is a really nice body cream. I think I’ll buy it again at some point.
9 Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat – I love these! I think I have a few more of these – well, I would hope so! I don’t think these can be found in the shops anymore…
10 Soap & Glory Hand Food – not a favourite for hands, but it did a decent job as a foot moisturiser. Overall, too expensive for what it is, so I won’t buy this one again!
11 Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon – a lovely light blue polish. Too bad the brand can’t be found in the shops anymore – their nail polishes were fab!
12 Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond – one of my all-time favourite shower and bath products. I haven’t seen this in a while, and I hope it hasn’t been discontinued. 😬
13 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – these are awesome, and I have another big bag in my stash.
I think I’ve done well with my empties in March – especially with the fragrances! Which items have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments, and thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is about the majority of the products I bought before Christmas (or so). I’m saying majority because I didn’t take photos of everything I bought, and there’s some stuff I know I’ll only remember after posting. Without further ado, here’s the stuff:
Boots No7 Skincare Stars The Star Of The Show – this incredible set has products worth £149, but it was £39 for a few days in the run-up to Christmas.
Marks & Spencer Discover Spiced Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Soft Iris – these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free. The set was £6.65 (30% off offer), but even the full price of £9.50 is a total steal for 3 x 30ml. I already reviewed this set.
M&S Discover Water Jasmine, Fresh Lychee, White Coconut – I’ll review this set soon. Same price and amount as above, and all these fragrances are vegan and certified cruelty-free as well!
Radox Perky Peach, Radox Mint To Be – I’m looking forward to trying these shower gels, although I made a mistake with the minty one. I ignored the name and the mint leaves, and I somehow assumed it would be a lime scent… 🤦♀️ These 400ml shower gels were about £1.30 each.
Imperial Leather Wild Thing, Imperial Leather Shake Your Bambootay – these 2 cute 250ml shower gels were 99p each. I’ve been using them for almost 2 weeks now, and the review will be up tomorrow!
Herbal Essences Bio Renew Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo & Blue Ginger Conditioner – these are in use too, and the review will be up on Friday! Oh, and these were £3 each!
I also bought plenty of face masks – but they were too many to list. I’ve already tried and reviewed some of them!
Boots Live + Be Awakening Glow Shower Cream, Boots Live+Be Beautiful Connection Bath Soak – I bought these and lots of other Live+Be products as it looks like the entire range is going to be discontinued. Really sad (and typical because I just discovered these last month). I already reviewed the 2 products above.
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – I bought this when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. They’re usually £4.99. I already reviewed this body cream.
Superdrug Vitamin Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen (also £4.99) was the other product I got with the Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price deal.
I bought 2 Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturising Shower Creams. I’ve never seen these before but it was time Superdrug finally made a shower gel with their iconic Vitamin E fragrance. These were £1.20 each (Better Than Half Price offer). Garnier Body’s Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion With Shea Butter was a repurchase. This is a big 400ml, and it was £2.49 (B&M Bargains).
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Hibiscus Extract was on a Save 1/3 offer. It’s usually £4.49 for a 465ml, but I paid £2.99.
And lastly, Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner, Boots Ingredients Niacinamide Serum and Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Gel. The first 2 products were £5, the cleanser was £4 but was actually free (3 for 2 offer).
The No 7 set was a bit more expensive (it wasn’t if you consider the actual value of the products in it), everything else was rather cheap! Have you tried any of these items? Would you like to try any of them? What have you bought recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 😘

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender. This body cream is meant to be used before bedtime as it promises to hydrate your skin while you sleep.
In addition to vitamin E and lavender, it also contains shea butter, lactic acid (!), retinyl palmitate (!), and horse chestnut extract. This body cream is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans.
I’ve been using this body cream on and off for almost 3 weeks now, and I think it’s very good. It’s richer than the “regular” vitamin E body cream, and feels like it’s sitting on the skin for a bit before it’s absorbed. Based on this, I’d agree that this body cream is more suitable for use before bedtime, especially during the colder months.
The lavender scent is quite strong, so you should like or love lavender, otherwise you won’t get much joy from this body cream. Luckily, I love lavender, so I’m very happy with my purchase!
If you’re interested, Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender is available as 300ml for £4.99. I bought it (and another body cream from this range) when Superdrug ran a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price promotion in December.
