Hi there! Today’s post is about Treacle Moon’s That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel. My husband and I call it amazingness in a bottle. 🙂
I’ve been avoiding Treacle Moon products for years. I have nothing against the brand – au contraire! I do think the brand is actually very quirky.
However, I just somehow made the decision to ignore all things Treacle Moon. I guess it was some anti-hoarding impulse that kicked in… 😀
Anyway, now the shower gel is mine, and I’ve given it a try! I think this shower gel is lovely. The vanilla fragrance isn’t a pure vanilla. I think it’s a mix of vanilla and yoghurt with a hint of lemon.
This shower gel smells sweet and refreshing at the same time. And I love the non-drying formula. I’m very happy with this product!
I would recommend this shower gel to everyone! Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath And Shower Gel is available as 500ml for £3 (Waitrose, Tesco). I paid £2 (save 1/3 promotion).
Hi there! Today’s post is about Boots’ Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray & Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray. I’ve already emptied one of these vanilla sprays (I have 3!), and I’m almost halfway through the mango spray. So it really is time for a review! 🙂
Boots’ Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray is gorgeous! It smells exactly like the delicious and divine Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Butter. It’s so good that I could kick myself for not trying it sooner!
Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray is really lovely too. It’s wonderfully sweet and cuddly – just like Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Butter.
I would recommend these 2 body sprays to anyone! They’re available as 150ml for £3.50, which is good value. But on top of that, Boots runs 3 for 2 promotions quite frequently, so there’s no excuse not to stock up! Now go! Buy! 🙂
Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.
NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂
NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!
NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.
Hi there! In the past couple of months I haven’t done that much stocking up on stuff I don’t need. 😀 But I just couldn’t resist temptation (offers) the other day. I went to Asda – and found a few items I had to have. And I placed three Superdrug orders in 24 hours. And then I swung by my local Bargain Buys store… Now here’s what I bought!
NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist (200ml), NSPA Moisturising Shea Butter (200ml), NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel (500ml) and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist (200ml). These products were all on special and they were £2 each.
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel (300ml) and Body Mist (100ml) – these were on special for 75p each! 2 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask tubes (75ml each, there was a buy one get second half price offer – so that’s £3.98 in total for 150ml of product), Tommyguns ‘Leave me in Conditioner’ & Styling Crème (250ml) – I bought this one because it was 70p!
3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Face Masks – 49p each, 3 for 2 offer – so I paid 98p in total for 3 face masks. B. Soft Blendable Kohl Eyeliner 122 Chocolate and 100 Black – these were 90p each. B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick 54 Eton Mess and 186 Rose Quartz. The lippies were £1.80 each. And then there’s the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlight Serum – it was £3.
Superdrug Optimum PhytoBrighter Black Moisturiser and Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. These products are usually £12.99 each – but thanks to a half price offer I paid £6.45 each only.
B. nail polishes were 30p – so I just picked a few randomly – Mulberry, Peach Melba, 3 base coats, Piglet, Minx and Sea Foam.
The day before Superdrug reduced the prices on their B. range dramatically (I think it’s going to be discontinued) was the last day of the 3 for 2 deal on all make-up. I didn’t want to buy anything this time, but MUA nail polishes were 50p only – so I bought 9 polishes for £3 in total. I chose these colours: Red Rose, Leapfrog, Whitewash, Fever Red, Orchid and Pitch Black. I also added two clear polishes to make the most of the 3 for 2 offer. 🙂
I also like to go to Bargain Buys. I always find at least one make-up item or nail polish to buy. This time I bagged 2 NYC nail polish trio packs – they were £1 each. Yes, that’s 6 polishes for £2 in total! The shades in the first set are: I Need A Dollar, Flame The Night and Lavender Cupcake. The shades in the second set are: Love Never Dies, Empire Purple and Perpetual Peony. The picture below is what the trio packs look like. So if you’ve got a Bargain Buys or Poundworld near you, you might want to swing by to check what kind of goodies they’ve got. 🙂
So this is it. Finally! 😀 I didn’t have to buy more skin care, I certainly didn’t need any toiletries, and I don’t even want to mention my nail polish stash (some of the polishes I bought are back-ups of what I’ve already got). But with all those great offers I just couldn’t resist! What can I say? I’m a compulsive bargain hunter! By the way, I only spent just under £44 in total for all of those 42 products – not bad at all! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! ♥
Hi there! I’m taking part in this year’s Secret Santa at my workplace. And I was lucky to draw the name of a female colleague out of a mug. I knew I’d be going for a toiletries set anyway, so I bought this Sweet Snuggles 5 Piece Bathing Set.
This gift set contains 250 ml Vanilla Body Wash, 250 ml Vanilla Body Lotion, 100ml Double Choc Body Cream, 100ml Double Choc Body Scrub, and a pink body puff.
This Sweet Snuggles 5 Piece Bathing Set is £4.50 only at the moment. I think this is a really good deal considering the set contains full size products. So if you’re looking for a last minute Secret Santa gift for a female colleague, I think this gift set (which is available at Superdrug’s) would be a good idea.
Another plus: This set carries the Leaping Bunny logo. The products are cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!
Hi there! This is my first post about stuff I wouldn’t recommend. I’ve done a few posts about products I wouldn’t repurchase, but I’m thinking that I might make it clearer in the title from now on. Now, let’s get to the products! Meet Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Chocolate Vanilla Hand Cream and FCUK Pure Bodyspray.
Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Chocolate Vanilla Hand Cream is a product I found in the bargain bin at my local Superdrug store. Whilst this cream does a good job moisturising my hands, the sickly sweet vanilla scent annoys me big time.
FCUK’s Pure Bodyspray is another product I regret buying. The fragrance contains notes of violet, pepper and vanilla. In theory, this doesn’t sound bad at all. In reality, I find this fragrance obnoxious. I tell you why…
At first there’s a blast of old-fashioned violets, the next thing my nose picks up is the smell of butcher – the intensity of the white pepper in this fragrance is beyond words. After a minute or two the pepper note is gone and what remains is the scent of dried violets with a hint of candy vanilla. Not pleasant. At all.
I’ll give the hand cream and the bodyspray to a teenage relative who’s always happy to take all kinds of unwanted stuff off my hands. She loves sickly sweet scents in everything, so she might actually like these two products.
Hi there. Today I’m writing about about one of my all-time favourite vanilla fragrances. It’s gorgeous, it’s cheap, it’s Yves Rocher Organic Vanilla Eau de Toilette.
This wonderful vanilla fragrance is pure and authentic; it smells of real bourbon vanilla. Every time I spray it, I think of vanilla cake, cupcakes, candy, muffins and cookies. It’s the ultimate vanilla cookie dough fragrance!
I also think it’s the perfect fragrant companion on cold winter days. It’s like a warm embrace in a bottle.
Another bonus is that it’s quite longlasting. It easily lasts for about four to six hours on me (it lasts longer when layered over a body lotion or body butter – preferably a vanilla-scented one). Five sprays in the morning and five sprays on my lunch break are enough for the entire day.
The delightful Yves Rocher Organic Vanilla Eau deToilette is available as 20ml for £5 or 100ml for £9.50.
Have you tried this one? If not, what’s your favourite vanilla fragrance?
