Reducing My Oldies Stash – Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream and Thai Fusion Bath Moments

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! If you read my blog, you may know that I’ve got drawers, boxes and cupboards full of toiletries. and that I’m working my way through my stash. Two of the (g)oldies I’ve just rediscovered are Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Nourishing Bath Cream with green tea, rice milk and jasmine, and Imperial Leather Thai Fusion Bath Moments with pomegrante, hibiscus and milk.
Imperial Leather Japanese Spa
(bath cream & shower gel) was originally a limited edition, but it became part of Imperial Leather’s standard collection. It’s been repackaged a few times already. And it’s no surprise Imperial Leather held onto the formula because the fragrance is clean, green, sweet and sensual. It’s very nice!

Thai Fusion has also been a limited edition. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s a shame because the exotic floral-fruity fragrance is warm, sweet, sunny and simply beautiful. I’ll miss it when it’s gone!

Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current eye cream – Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration Eye Cream. This product promises deep hydration to help reduce the signs of ageing around the eye area for fresher, brighter, and more healthy looking skin.

I’ve been using this eye cream twice a day for a month now, and I’ve formed an opinion. So read on and I’ll tell you if this eye cream is any good. 🙂

This fragrance-free eye cream has a gel-like texture that feels light and refreshing when it’s applied to the eye area. It hydrates the skin around my eyes nicely, and it sits well under make-up. And I’m satisfied that my eye area looks fresher and brighter.

I’m really enjoying this eye cream because it does what it promises. I think it’s in my all-time top 5! So yes, I would recommend it!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Gentle Foaming Facial Wash For Dry Skin. I paid £1.69 for the 150ml bottle.

It appears that this product has been discontinued recently. However, some stores may have stock left, so someone else might still benefit from a review.

Alrighty… this product promises to remove make-up and impurities and to leave skin feeling fresh and revitalised. It contains vitamin E as well as aloe vera, rose and camomile extracts.

On the back of the bottle it says… dispense 2 to 3 pumps of product into your hand and massage it all over your wet face. Then rinse with warm water… job done.

I’ve been using this product once or twice a week for a few weeks now, so here’s what I think.

First of all, there’s no need to be wasteful. 1 pump dispenses enough foam for my face and my neck. 👍

Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

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…

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo & Conditioner With Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Shampoo and Conditoner with Mother Of Pearl & Cherry Blossom. These 2 products are aimed at people with dull and tired hair, and they promise to restore gloss and shine. I’ve been using these products on and off since the beginning of April, and here’s what I think.

The shampoo cleanses my hair and my scalp well, and the cherry blossom fragrance is really lovely. It’s my favourite Garnier hair care fragrance so far. 🙂

The conditioner is very good. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky. I can’t comment on whether it makes my hair extra shiny, but I’m really happy with the conditioner!

I would recommend these 2 hair care products to everyone who’s looking for a shampoo and conditioner combo that makes hair feel…

Radox Feel Rejuvenated & Radox Feel Exotic

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 Radox shower gels that I’ve been using for the past week – Radox Feel Rejuvenated (found this at my local Poundstretcher) and Radox Feel Exotic (this one’s from Superdrug).

Radox Feel Rejuvenated with orange oil and vitamin E is pretty awesome! It’s the nicest orange fragrance I’ve ever smelled in a product. It’s oranges, cream and a hint of cheesecake. It’s delicious! The shower cream formula is 100% non-drying. Awesome stuff!

Radox Feel Exotic with lychee and watermelon isn’t that great. I think it smells quite masculine! I’d describe the fragrance as a mix of fizzy guava and coconut. Disappointing…

Radox shower gels are available as 250ml for about £2. I paid 99p for the Feel Rejuvenated shower cream, and 79p for the Feel Exotic shower gel.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Sunburst Sauna

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Sunburst Sauna face mask.

This face mask is exclusive to Primark where I picked it up for 90p.

Initially I bought 1 mask. But I went back to the store to buy a few more of these masks because I was hoping this one would be the reincarnation of the incredible Grapefruit Sauna mask which I fell in love with.

I’ve now tried this mask, and guess what – it really is the reincarnation of the incredible Grapefruit Sauna mask! Yes! Score! 🙂

OK, now here’s what this mask does. This self-heating mask leaves skin feeling sensationally clean and clear. It really is amazing. Nothing else comes close to this mask’s skin cleansing powers.

One thing: If you leave the mask on for longer (I usually leave masks on for 30+ minutes), you’ll notice that this mask will make your…
