Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in May. And here they are!
1 Lancôme Hypnôse Eau De Parfum – what a fragrance! I’d buy it again, but it has been discontinued. I guess Lancome needs the shelf space for another version of La Vie Est Belle…
2 Thierry Mugler Alien Sunessence Eau de Toilette Legère – one of the best fragrances I’ve ever had. Very much like the original Alien (before L’Oréal ruined the Mugler brand) but lighter and with a touch of lemon. Amazing stuff! If this was relaunched (same formula, of course), I’d buy several bottles.
3 Prada Infusion De Fleur D’Oranger Eau De Parfum – what a wonderful fragrance! 11 stars! I hope it will be relaunched – so I can buy another bottle or two!
4 Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco – what a wonderful conditioner! I have one more tub in my stash (plus 2 keratin hair masks from the same brand).
5 Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner – one of the best toners ever. I hope to find it again!
6 Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water (no photo) – this soap is amazing. A definite repurchase.
7 Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid – I love this shower gel. Unfortunately, it seems to be discontinued.
8 L’Oréal Elvive Hydra Hyaluronic Moisture Locking Conditioner – a very good conditioner (the shampoo is lovely too). I will buy it again, no doubt. My husband is currently using the leftover shampoo, and he likes it a lot. (I always use more conditioner than shampoo, and once I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching shampoo on to my husband, and I move on to another shampoo and conditioner combo.)
9 Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life – this is a lovely body scrub. Very effective! I’m not the biggest fan of the girly-pink fragrance of most the Soap & Glory products, but I would consider repurchasing this scrub.
10 Lancôme Hypnôse Hypnotising Shower Gel – a great shower gel. Too bad the Hypnôse line has been discontinued.
11 Lancôme Hypnôse Hypnotising Body Lotion – I liked this body lotion a lot too. Ah well… one can hope for a relaunch at some point.
12 Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel – a really decent moisturiser. But I don’t think I’d buy it again as it doesn’t work as a base for make-up.
And this is it for May. Not too bad, I think! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about Thierry Mugler‘s Alien Flora Futura fragrance. I picked up the 30ml eau de toilette for £25 (clearance, House Of Fraser).
It appears that no two websites have the same information about this fragrance. Mugler Europe and Mugler USA list different notes, and a number of other sources lack credibility. However, some notes are listed considerably more often than others, and these notes are night-blooming cactus flower, white amber and sandalwood.
Alright, what’s the fragrance like? It’s… wow! It smells fresh, sweet, floral, pink and yellow, transparent, youthful and full of energy. It smells like magic, sunlight and happiness!
Thierry Mugler‘s Alien Flora Futura Eau De Toilette is available as 30ml for £42 and 60ml for £52. There aren’t too many online stores that still have the fragrance in stock. It appears that many online retailers were able to sell the fragrance at full price. However, I’m glad I swung by House Of Fraser the other day because I bagged myself a bargain! If you’d like to try this fragrance and there’s a department store near you… you know what to do! 🙂

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post, a.k.a. Mrs Strawberry Blonde’s May Beauty Awards. 😜 As always, I’ve chosen my TOP 3 from all the products I’ve reviewed this month, and I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the TOP 3!
3rd place – Garnier Intensive 7 Days Smoothing Nourishing Lotion With Cocoa Butter
Runner-Up – The Crème Shop Resveratrol Face Mask
I love Garnier’s Cocoa Butter body lotion. It makes my skin feel super soft and silky, and it smells gorgeous!
The Crème Shop’s Resveratrol face mask is one of the best face masks I’ve tried so far this year.
WINNER – Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic Eau De Toilette
I think Thierry Mugler did a great job with this limited edition fragrance. It made me curious about the other limited editions I missed!
Onto the honourable mentions! Radox‘s incredible Feel Rejuvenated Shower Gel almost made the TOP 3. It was very close! Montagne Jeunesse‘s Sunburst Sauna face mask is pretty awesome too.
Olay‘s Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream is very nice. And Garnier‘s Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel is simply great!
Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Which products did you love the most this month? Please get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that I bought a little while ago (clearance) and that I’ve been wearing on and off for a few weeks now – Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic.
Alien Aqua Chic is a limited edition from 2013, and it contains the following notes: ginger and lemon verbena (top notes), freesia (heart note), as well as wood and amber (base notes).
What’s the fragrance like? It’s really nice. I like it! It’s a lighter version of the original Alien. It doesn’t seem to contain any jasmine, but it still has the typical Alien feel to it. I think the ginger and lemon verbena notes give the fragrance a lovely refreshing vibe, and the freesia note feels transparent and airy.
I think Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic is a great spring and summer fragrance. It’s a limited edition, but it can still be found online. Just make sure you buy it from a reputable seller, OK? 🙂
