NSPA Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream And Body Oil

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA products I picked up from my local Asda’s clearance shelf – NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream and Body Oil. I picked these up for half price – that’s £1.50 each instead of the usual £3. The NSPA collection is receiving a makeover, and it appears a number of products will go – including these 2. Onto the actual review!

NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Shower Cream has a very old-fashioned fragrance. I don’t hate it, but I don’t care for it. I don’t think this product qualifies as a shower cream. It feels nice whilst it’s being lathered up, but as soon as I get out of the shower, my skin feels dry and in need of a moisturiser.

NSPA Uplifting & Revitalising Bergamot & Orange Blossom Body Oil is much nicer. This…

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream & Night Cream

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 of Boots’ most prestigious skin care products – Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream and Night Cream. I’ve been using these 2 products for almost 6 weeks now, and here’s what I think.

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream with retinol and Matrixyl 3000 promises to improve lines and wrinkles for visibly younger looking skin in 2 weeks. Whilst I have terrible skin (very dry and moody skin, eczema, skin discolorations, milia and I get spots all the time), I have no wrinkles (Yay!) and only a few very fine lines on my forehead. I have to credit Olay for this – but this is another matter for another day.

Since I’ve used this No 7 day cream, I’ve noticed that those very fine lines are even harder to detect. This is a great result!…

L’Oreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Toner

L'oreal fine flowers toner

This toner is for sensitive or dry skin and so I thought I’d give it a go. It’s more of a very light gel than I’d expected and I’d really rather have a normal consistency toner. This one just didn’t sink in that well. It also has a light fragrance that I can’t really place, but I’m prepared to accept it might be floral, LOL.

On the plus side, it didn’t do any harm and it does have a fairly soothing effect, but it’s just not the type of toner I’d buy again. You can get it at Boots for £5.99 for 400ml which is a very good bargain and it lasts an age.

Happy Sunday!

Primark PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask With Red Clay

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Not too long I tried Primark’s PS… Purifying Rinse Off Mask with Red Clay. This is a regular clay mask that you’re supposed to leave on for at least 10 minutes before you rinse it off. Whilst this mask promises to give skin a deep cleanse, it also contains sweet almond oil and vitamin E which are beneficial for the skin. This sounds great!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s one of Primark’s best face masks. The mask didn’t make my skin feel tight or umcomrtable whilst it was drying. When I washed it off, I was happy to see that my skin looked clean and clear and that my pores appeared smaller. And whilst my skin felt squeaky clean, it didn’t feel dry.

All in all, this is a great little face mask that I’m happy to buy again. Primark’s PS… Purifying…

Skin Treats Glitter Face Pink Hydrogel Glitter Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this Skin Treats Glitter Face Pink Hydrogel Glitter Mask which I picked up for £1 at my local B&M Bargains store. This mask promises to hydrate skin deeply. It contains chondrus crispus (a species of seaweed which is bursting with minerals and vitamins and is said to protect against UV rays) as the 3rd ingredient. Wow! It also contains vitamin E which is known to be beneficial to skin.

The instructions on the back state that you should cleanse your face, place the mask on your face and leave it on for 20-25 minutes before discarding it. I’ve never used a hydrogel mask before, so I didn’t know what to expect.

I was also a little baffled by another instruction which says that the mask must be used within 3 hours of opening. Yes, I do understand the concept of no added preservatives, but…

The Crème Shop Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop‘s Last Christmas “Naughty” Energy Boost Face Mask which is aimed at people who skimp on sleep, forget about SPF and rub and scrub their skin. This face mask promises to invigorate skin and to improve skin resilience and suppleness.

This mask works like almost any other sheet mask – place it on your cleansed face, leave it alone for 15 minutes (I leave sheet masks on until they’re dry), then massage the remaining essence into your skin. I’ve given this mask a try, and here’s what I think.

I think this mask is fantastic. It feels hydrating without being greasy, it feels refreshing without any dodgy cooling effect, and it appeared to plump up my skin. So yeah, it delivered on its promise! A look at the back of the mask reveals that it’s bursting with botanical extracts – which…

Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo

batiste blush dry shampoo

Batiste is of course the best dry shampoo out there by a long way, and I always use it. However, I tend to opt for the original scent version and so I thought that this time I’d give the Blush fragrance a go. I have to say it’s quite nice, although I’m not sure it made me feel ‘floral & flirty’, LOL – though possibly I’m not the right age range for that!

Anyway, whatever the scent, it’s still a brilliant product, and if you’d like to be floral & flirty this summer, then you can pick up a bottle at Boots for £2.99 for 200ml. Enjoy!
