I Love…Strawberries & Milkshake Body Butter

It’s been a while I haven’t written a review, but if you follow me on twitter/facebook, you probably know the reasons. The important is that I am back! (yeaaah!)

Today I would love to share with you my opinion about I Love…Strawberries&Milkshake which I’ve been using a lot lately. I have already reviewed the shower gel, and now it’s time to take the next step: the body butter. I was really excited to try it as it looked like a cheaper version of The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter.

When I’ve opened the jar for the very first time, I fell in love with the strawberry scent. Intense, sweet and different at the same time. It’s not the usual strawberry scent, but it reminds me of a drink, something like the Strawberry Daiquiri. Unfortunately, it doesn’t last long, just a few hours (a little bit longer if you combine it with the shower gel).

This isn’t a proper body butter, as it feels light as a whipped cream. That might let you down, if you are expecting a thick texture. It spreads easily on skin and gets absorbed quickly.

Did the ”whipped cream” texture scared you? Well, let me tell you that it perfectly  moisturizes my skin.  I don’t find it greasy, but every now and then it feels heavy and leaves an oily feeling on my skin. Can anyone tell me why this happens?

Last, but not least, the packaging is simple, made of a sturdy and lightweigh plastic. On the lid there is a pink sticker with the product’s name and the brief description. The jar contains 200ml and costs €6.90.

If I suggest it? Absolutely! I am going to order more scents from All About Eve(worldwide shipping). I am thinking of Vanilla&Ice cream, Coconut&Cream and Lemon&Lime. Any suggestions?

Have you ever tried I Love Cosmetics body butters? Do you like them? Which scents have you tried?

Splish Splash I was Taking A Bath… My Top 3 Shower Gels

I really enjoy shower time(who doesn’t?). It’s a pleasant moment during a hard day, the best way to relax, forget where you are and clean your body and your mind. There’s just one rule for me: scented shower gel(s)! I love the ones that leave my skin smelling phenomenal!

In case you are wondering,yes, I have more than one shower gels, because I want to choose depending my mood, the occasion, the weather… I even combine them to get the scent I want.

So here is my TOP 3 shower gels- at least for the moment:
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss, Palmolive Aromatherapy Warm Vanilla and I Love Cosmetics...Strawberries & Milkshake!

The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss– It is a gentle, soap-free shower gel with an intense vanilla scent that reminds me  of a cake with vanilla icing(yummy!). As soon as I open the bottle the whole bathroom smells of this amazing scent. It contains community trade honey and that’s why it leaves skin moisturized and velvety soft. The vanilla scent lingers on my skin for hours after use.

Got it two times since Christmas and I should have got more of these shower treausures… Yes, I overuse it. It’s one the top of the list! What did you expect?
This one is a limited edition created for Christmas 2012, but I suggest you to try the Madagascan Vanilla Flower or…
Palmolive Aromatherapy Warm Vanilla- Love the smell, warm and sweet, but more sensual than the previous one. The scent lingers on my body for quite long, but I don’t find it very moisturizing. It leaves my skin soft but not comfortable at all. Plus, the ingredients aren’t the best you could choose.
After these, you might wonder why is it still on my top 3. Well, costs no more than €3, contains a good amount of product and the scent is gorgeous. Are these reasons enough?
I Love… Strawberries&Milkshake Bubble Bath & Shower Gel– Oh my gosh! It smells heavenly, just like sweet strawberries. The scent doesn’t last long unless I pair it with the matching body lotion. It is quite liquid and runny so be careful not to empty the half bottle at once. I have to use a lot of product if I want to get foam, but that doesn’t really bother me. It leaves my skin clean and moisturized and that’s what counts! It has a very convenient price, €6.90 for 500ml, not bad at all!
I’ve got mine from All About Eve, but I am wondering if there are any stres in Greece selling I Love Cosmetics.

Have you tried any of these shower gels? Which is your favorite one? Do you prefer scented products for your bath time or not?

I’m off now! Time to get a hot and scented shower!

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days (Normal Skin)

Today I would like to talk you about a body lotion I am using lately. It’s the Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days, the one for normal skins. Garnier claims that after seven days of using this body lotion, skinàs quality is dramatically improved. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by that?

I love the formula of the lotion: non-greasy and fast-absorbing to the skin. I really don’t like when my body lotions take long to absorb. Even if it is a lightweight lotion, which hydrates enough my skin. It hydrates my skin pretty well, leaving it soft and smooth.

I use the product once per day and the moisture lasts for long.

The smell of the product is light, nice and refreshing. I think it’s the Aloe Vera that smells.

It also has a pretty good price: 4.50€ for 250ml of product.

It works well and I would probably buy it again ’cause of the low price. But if you ask me, I don’t believe this product does miracles on your body. Just a usual body lotion. Garnier can do more, I think.
Have you even tried it? What do you think? Which is your favorite body lotion?

Bye beauties!
