Haul! New Products – Primark, Poundworld, Poundland, Boots, Wilko, Home Bargains, M&S

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! I’ve done a little shopping this month. I haven’t gone nuts, I promise. But I picked up quite a few bargains. So let me show you what I bought!

I bought 4 PS… Facial Cleansing Sponge duo packs. That’s 8 sponges for £4. The reason I stocked up is because I’ve been using one of these sponges for a few weeks now – and I love it! I also bought 2 more PS… Konjac Sponges. That’s £3 for 2 konjac sponges.

It appears that Superdrug has given up on selling reasonably priced konjac sponges which is their loss, really. They also discontinued a few other fantastic products, so I haven’t done much Superdrug shopping lately. So yeah, it really is their loss! Anyhoo, those PS… sponges are from Primark!

I don’t think I’ve ever left my local Poundworld store empty-handed. Poundworld and Bargain…

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter. I’ve already gone through a tub of the matching body scrub, so I thought I should finally give the body butter a try!

I’ve been using this body butter on and off for almost 3 weeks now, and I must say that I really like it. This body butter contains pro-vitamin B5, vitamins C and E, and natural extracts, and it makes my skin feel soft and nourished. Great stuff!

I also like the authentic mango & papaya fragrance. It’s quite strong when you open the tub, but it’s perfectly fine once it hits the skin. I would definitely recommend this body butter. And I’m pretty sure it will be one of my favourite moisturisers this summer!

Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Butter is available as 200ml for £3.99

Summer Survival Essentials

sunshine and teacups

As i’m sure you are well aware if you live in the UK, it’s been *very* hot here the past few days. I feel like i’m melting whilst writing this! So i’ve put together my summer essentials that are helping me to get smoothly through these hot days and might help some of you reading who are suffering slightly too!

They say ‘safety first’ so that’s what i’ll do. The Ladival sun cream has been my faithful friend not just the past week but this entire year! This helps me to never burn and I really feel protected when I wear this. I also always put this on my face before makeup as it helps to protect my sensitive skin and also provides a great base for makeup too.

Another product I think is great is the Lypsyl SPF 50 lip balm. This is made especially for this warmer weather…

T.J. Maxx Haul

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I have to visit my local T.J. Maxx periodically because you never know what you will find there. It is s much fun digging through all the stuff in their Beauty section. Sometimes I go in looking for something specific and sometimes I go in just to see what I will find. This trip was for a specific product. I will start with that product since I did find what I was looking for that day.

London No. 16 Apothecary English Rose Invigorating Bath & Shower Gel – laden with our bespoke blend of essential oils and skin softening properties our English rose bath and shower gel offers a truly luxurious cleansing experience.

You Need These In Your Life – Primark PS… Cellulose Facial Cleansing Sponges

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing the PS… Facial Cleansing Sponges that I found at Primark. I’ve been using one of these sponges for about 4 weeks now – and I love it! I think I love these cellulose sponges more than konjac sponges! Now let me tell you why I think that you need to try these sponges too. 🙂

I think these sponges are super easy to use – you use them just as you would use any other facial sponge or washcloth. Just apply a small amount of face wash to the moist sponge and rub it all over your face. And that’s it! I think this sponge makes my skin feel super soft and clean, however, it’s not harsh at all. This sponge is definitely suitable for daily use, and I’m sure it’s perfect for all skin types.

I also like that these sponges are easy to…

Reducing My Oldies Stash – I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie + Refreshing Body Spritzer

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie and I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer. I’m not entirely sure where and when I bought these products. But I’m sure I’ll be able to finish them this summer. Now onto the review!

I Love… Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie is a true 2 in 1 product. It exfoliates my skin nicely, but it’s also a proper shower product. And it smells fruity and juicy. It’s really nice!

I Love… Mango & Papaya Refreshing Body Spritzer turned out to be just as nice. Initially I thought this body spray was OK, but after a  few days I started to like it. The mango & papaya fragrance is quite well done. It’s fruity and juicy, but it’s not cloyingly sweet. It smells just like… summer!
