Haul! New Stuff From Thierry Mugler, Cacharel, Bvlgari, Dead Sea Collection, Faith In Nature, etc.

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post in a while – and I don’t even know why. But today’s post is about some of the stuff I picked up over the past few weeks.

Superdrug Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Face Mask & Superdrug Refreshing Cleansing Pads. These products are £4.99 each, but I picked them up when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Retinol Day & Night Creams. I think these ones were £4.99 each, but I’m not sure. Either way, I found these at Home Bargains.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Facial Serum. Also £4.99, I believe. Yes, Home Bargains. And there’s Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba£24 at Debenhams.

Palmolive Pampering Clay & Palmolive Purifying Clay shower gels for £1 each (Tesco).

Thierry Mugler Alien Fusion limited summer edition for £41 at Boots, and Cacharel Amor Amor for £31.50 at Debenhams.

Faith In Nature Lavender Soap & Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Soap. These were £1.50 each at Boots.

I’m looking forward to using these products. Apart from Amor Amor, all these products are new to me! Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura

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! 🙂

May Beauty Awards

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! 🙂

Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic

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? 🙂
