Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about the foot cream I’ve been using since early January – Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm.

This product promises “pampering moisture and concentrated nourishment” to make rough and dry heels feel super soft.

How’s the product? I think it’s awesome! It’s rich, but not greasy, and a little goes a long way. And it really helps with cracked heels!

OK, my feet are actually fine because I apply lotion or cream every day, but my husband’s feet… you don’t want to know! 😀

But guess what – this heel balm took care of my husband’s cracked heels – in 4 days. Is this awesome or what? I’m impressed!

The Sanctuary Spa Heel Balm is available as 75ml for £7.50. It’s not cheap. However, if you’re looking for a product that will take care of dry feet and cracked heels, you should give it…

Café De Bain Softening Shower Gel – Sweet Vanilla Madeleine, Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes which I picked up a little while ago (Superdrug).

Let’s start with Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine! This shower cream smells like Werther’s Originals Butter Candies. 100% delicious! I also like that this shower cream is not drying at all. This one’s really nice!
Cafe De Bain Shower
Café De Bain Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower cream is just as gentle on the skin. This shower cream smells sweet and fruity, but it’s not sugary-sweet. I’d describe the scent as a mix of milk and red fruits with a hint of coconut.

Café De Bain Sweet Vanilla Madeleine and Raspberry & Rose Crème Tarte shower crèmes are available as 250ml for £2.99 each. I paid £1.49 each (half price offer). 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s skin care post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask.

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

Onto the review! I think this face mask is nice. It’s not as thick as most other clay masks, but it works just fine.

I also like that it’s a scrub mask, so it exfoliates my skin twice – once when I apply the mask, and then again right before I rinse it off.

And the sweet vanilla and sugar fragrance makes the mask smell almost good enough to eat! Tempting! 😀

Montagne Jeunesse’s Vanilla Sundae Scrub Mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extract Juicy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s review is about Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion. I’ve had these products for a while, but just a few days ago I spotted a 4-piece Boots Extracts shower gel set which contained this satsuma shower gel (plus mango, strawberry and coconut). So I thought I should try and review these satsuma products!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash is lovely. It smells tangy and fresh. It’s the perfect early morning shower gel that wakes you up! I also like that the shower gel doesn’t feel drying. Nice one, Boots!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion is very well done. It smells just as refreshing as as the shower gel. And the formula is lovely too. It feels rich, but it’s not sticky, so it’s great for when you’re in a hurry but you still want to moisturise your skin.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Blueberry Blast Mud Masque & Gorgeous Grape Mud

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! If you’re a fan of Montagne Jeunesse, you know that the company does new masks all the time. However, it’s likely that you also know that many of those ‘new’ masks aren’t really new. Montagne Jeunesse recycles old formulas, or they give masks new names.

So when I picked up Montagne Jeunesse’s Blueberry Blast Mud Masque and Gorgeous Grape Mud, I had a hunch that these two masks would be identical. So I compared the ingredients on the back of the sachets. Guess what – the lists of ingredients really were identical! But wait, there’s more!

When I tried those masks, I also found that they were copies of Montagne Jeunesse’s Berrylicious Mud Masque. I’m certainly not complaining because the Berrylicious mask became an instant favourite. So I’m glad to see it was repackaged twice and not discontinued!

So what’s this mask like? This mask is…

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Purifying Facial Masque

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Sukin’s Purifying Facial Masque. This mask for all skin types contains cleansing kaolin clay, as well as soothing aloe vera and hydrating rose hip oil.

The instructions are quite simple – apply the mask, let it dry and leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse it off… and you’re done! 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think that this mask is quite alright. It doesn’t give me any visible results, but it makes my skin feel clean and soft. So yes, I’m satisfied that this face mask works!

However, I don’t love the fragrance – the mask smells like marzipan. If you like marzipan, you’ll love the mask, but the fragrance is just way too sweet for my taste.

All in all, I’m happy to continue to use the mask on a weekly basis. Sukin’s Purifying Facial Masque is vegan, cruelty-free and…

100% Awesome – The Crème Shop Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about The Crème Shop’s Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask. This sheet promises to draw out toxins to make skin appear purified and clear. It also claims to have antibacterial and brightening properties.

How does it work? The instructions state that the mask is supposed to be left on for 20-30 minutes – or until it’s completely dry. Any excess serum should be massaged into the skin (face AND neck).

I always leave sheet masks on until they’re perfectly dry. Sometimes this can take an hour – but that’s OK. Sheet masks are for evenings, weekends and days off! I also don’t ‘waste’ the excess serum that’s left in the sachet. I just pop a compressed sheet mask into the sachet – the new sheet mask will then absorb the excess serum, and I get another sheet mask that’s dripping with serum for free!
