Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! The last time I swung by my local Poundstretcher, they had lots of big 500ml Imperial Leather shower gels for £1. I picked up a few bottles for my husband and myself. However, I also remembered that I still had quite a few Imperial Leather shower gels in my stash…

So I decided to move Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry and Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance with plum blossom and violet from one of those boxes under the bed into the bathroom. I’ve been using these two products on and off for a few weeks now, so it’s time for a review. 🙂
Imperial Leather Shower
Imperial Leather Funfair Nostalgia with pink peony and raspberry smells like a blend of tea and flowers. I like it! The formula is simply fantastic because this body wash makes my skin feel hydrated. Wow!

2017 Beauty Favorites

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I discovered some great new products in 2017 and stuck with some much loved, tried and true favorites. I am constantly trying new skincare and makeup so new items enter my rotation and I am reminded of why I love some of my favorites! Read on to see what products were my favorites in 2017.

20180101_110038.jpgCLEANSERS – I will start with my favorite a.m. and favorite p.m. cleansers. These have not changed in the past 2 years because they work for me.

  • CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser this has been my morning cleanser for at least 2 years. It gets my face clean without leaving it feeling tight or dry. It has ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It is the perfect morning cleanser and I won’t be surprised if it is still on my list in 2018!
  • Purity Made Simple by Philosophy – I have been using this cleanser at night as long as…

Christina Aguilera Eau De Parfum

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Christina Aguilera’s first fragrance – a.k.a. Christina Aguilera Eau de Parfum. I’m not the biggest fan of celebrity fragrances, but I saw this one on sale (£9.99 for a 50ml bottle, B&M Bargains), so I just picked it up.

What’s the fragrance like? Well, it contains exotic fruity notes and blackcurrant (top notes), plum, jasmin and peony (heart notes), and amber, musk and vanilla (base notes).

And what does it smell like? It’s a very nice fragrance for all occasions. It smells fruity, but it’s not too sweet, it’s light, and it has an almost transparent feel to it. However, it’s also feminine and it has a youthful and happy aura – and it doesn’t come across as cheap or as a teen fragrance at all.

I would recommend this fragrance to everyone. No matter if you’re looking for a new day…

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant & Feel Glamorous

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! And Merry Christmas! A few months ago I reviewed 2 shower gels from Palmolive’s Aroma Moments collection. I really loved these 2 shower gels – so I thought I should try the other 2 shower gels as well. Now meet Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant and Feel Glamorous.
Palmolive Vibrant Glamorous
Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant with goji berries, ginger essential oil and hibiscus is simply marvellous. On the bottle it says “Glossy Touch” – they weren’t kidding. This shower gel feels amazing on my skin. I love it! And the fragrance is wonderful. It smells like… a warm summer morning. 100% dreamy!

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Glamorous with blackberry, bourbon vanilla and dragon fruit is gorgeous! It’s an effective body scrub that smells… unbelievable! The fragrance is a sensationally delicious and sweet mix of red fruit jelly, tea, ice cream and berries. 100% yummy!

sunshine and teacups

I’m a bit of a sucker for a Christmas bundle as I just think they are so fun and you never quite know what you’re going to get. I’ve recently discovered the website who have created a few different beauty product bundles for Christmas. They kindly let me choose a bundle to send me so I had a choice between the women’s and kid’s bundles so I of course grabbed the women’s one (although I would not be opposed to a Peppa Pig bubble bath once in a while). It does show you suggestions of a few products you might get but it does say it might vary so I didn’t really know what I would actually be receiving which is intriguing. The bundle is £36.99 which I did think was quite a lot of money to spend on something like this but now seeing what I received it…

#FriendsMasking Challenge

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I was very ambitious in November and decided I would try to participate in 2 Instagram challenges. I enjoy taking part in these challenges and it gives me the motivation to use up my mask collection! I used a lot of the same masks in this challenge that I did in #MarvelousMaskChallenge. Read on for the themes for each day and if I had a mask that fit the theme. I did not have a mask for every day but I did most of them.

This challenge was based on the different kinds of friends that you might have.

1. The Bright One – Manefit Lily Whitening and Brightening. The serum in this was thick and sticky and I didn’t like how it felt on my face. It did lighten and brighten but felt super sticky doing it.

2. The Responsible One – Epielle 3-Step Complete Facial Kit Vitamin C…

100% Cruelty-Free – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Vanilla Body Butter

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Christmas-themed body products – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter.

These products were part of a small gift set which I bought last year. I spotted the exact same gift set at Superdrug just a few days ago. So I decided to give these products a try!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub smells like… Christmas cookies! The scrub itself is nice as well. It’s easy to spread, it’s not too harsh, but it’s effective!

Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter is lovely. The body butter is very rich, and the fragrance is the sweetest, warmest and cuddliest spicy vanilla. Fantastic stuff!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter are available as part of Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set which I saw on sale for £3.50 the other day. The body scrub…
