Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Scrub, Cucumber Toner & Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 dirt cheap Boots own-brand products – Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Scrub, Facial Toner, and 3-Minute Clay Mask. These products are £1.50 each, but Boots ran a 3 for £3 promotion, so I paid £1 each. Now let me tell you if these products are any good!

I really like Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Scrub because it’s effective without being too harsh. And the fragrance – which I’d describe as a clean and feminine fragrance with a hint of cucumber – is nice and pleasant. If I hadn’t known that this is Boots’ cheapest and most basic own-brand scrub, I wouldn’t have believed it. Well done, Boots!

Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Toner is very good. It feels refreshing, and the cucumber fragrance is really nice. And whilst this toner contains alcohol, it doesn’t feel drying at all. I’m also glad to…

Origins Modern Friction

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I received a sample of Origins Modern Friction in the Birchbox November 2016.Origins is one of those skin care lines that I have always wanted to try but just haven’t. I was pleased to get this sample so that I could try the line without investing in an expensive full sized product that might not work.

Sand-blasting skin with coarse, chemical crystals? How painfully passé. Here’s age-smoothing exfoliation without irritation. Skin-refining Rice Starch, cushioned in cream, shows real affinity for rapidly removing sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolorations. Lemon Oil kick starts the process of illumination. Another age-sweeping action: skin-menacing molecules are mopped up. All while Aloe keeps skin calm and comfy. There’s no ouch, extra steps or other complications. No redness or flaking follows. The before-and-afters are amazing. Signs of fine lines and size of pores appear to shrink in size. Skin looks…

Guilty Pleasure – Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe Eau De Parfum

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! I’ve been a fan of J Lo’s Live fragrance for quite some time. And a few weeks ago I found a similar looking fragrance online.

I did some research, and it turned out that I found Live’s “sister fragrance”! I bought it right away – it was  £12.95 for 100ml which is a total bargain! 🙂

I’ve been wearing this fragrance on and off for a few weeks now, so let me tell you more about Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe Eau De Parfum.

First of all, J Lo’s Live Luxe fragrance contains the following notes:
– peach, pear and melon (top note),
– freesia, honeysuckle and lily of the valley (heart note),
– and sweet vanilla, amber, musk and sandalwood (base note).

And what’s the fragrance actually like? I think that Live Luxe is a really nice fragrance. It smells of fresh fruits, vanilla and sweet…

NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel, NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 NSPA shower gels which, I think, sound perfectly delicious – NSPA Vanilla Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Shea Butter Shower & Bath Gel. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the big 500ml shower gels are £3 each. I paid £2 each (special offer). 🙂 Now onto the reviews!

NSPA Vanilla is a warm, smokey vanilla. The fragrance is rather dense and definitely more suitable for the colder seasons. I like this shower gel, but I don’t love it. My husband, however, seems to enjoy it very much, so I’ll let him have it.

NSPA Shea Butter smells… cute and cuddly. I can’t describe the fragrance any better, but I love it. It’s gorgeous! If you’re not already in love with this shower gel, you need to have a sniff the next time you shop at Asda.

Have you tried these…

NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel, Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about two summer-themed products – NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist. NSPA products are exclusive to Asda, and the fruity body care products (500ml shower gels, 200ml body mists) are usually £3 each. I paid £2 each (2 for £4 promotion). Now onto the review!
NSPA Pineapple
NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel is more like a shower cream. It’s not the most refreshing shower poduct, but it’s not drying which is nice. The fragrance is sweet and exotic – almost like real pineapples. NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist is quite enjoyable as well. The pineapple fragrance isn’t very longlasting, but that’s OK really because this is obviously just a body mist.

All in all, I think these two products are quite reasonable and definitely good value for money. If you’re interested, give these products a sniff the next…

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub. I really like Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Butter, so I thought I really should try the matching scrub. And when I saw it was on special (£2.45, half price offer), I bought it. 🙂 Now let me tell you if the scrub is any good…

I think this scrub is quite effective. It makes my skin feel super soft – almost polished! But don’t worry, this scrub isn’t too harsh, and it certainly doesn’t cut my skin. 🙂 The cocoa and vanilla fragrance is very nice. It’s sweet and cuddly, and it’ll be perfect for the colder seasons.

Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub is suitable for vegans. The product is also 100% cruelty-free. If you’d like to try the scrub, it’s available as 200ml for £4.99. But don’t…
