Sometimes you don’t realise how much you like a product till it’s done…

The old saying ‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’ sometimes applies to beauty products. There are times when you use a product for long enough so that it runs out and it’s only then that you realise how much you liked it – this has happened to me with three products recently.

1. The Body Shop Raspberry Shower Gel.

I bought this one in the Christmas sales, it cost £3 (although I bought it with a voucher sent by the PR office) and I am amazed by how long it has lasted. I have used it almost every day (with one of those shower scrunchy sponge thingies) and it is only just into the final 1/8th of the bottle – fantastic value. This smells gorgeous and doesn’t leave skin dry. Fabulous stuff – I wish I had bought multiple bottles!

2. Beautifully Delicious Bubble Licious Bath & Shower Cream in Honey & Almond.

Since the cold spell before Christmas, I have been addicted to taking baths (not that I didn’t wash before then, I just preferred showers). They are so relaxing and luxurious – if I am ever stressed then a bath will just soak it all away. This bubble bath has been used in every bath I have taken since then – so another one that I amazed by how long it has lasted. Even if I have been using a bath ballistic or something else from Lush I have always used this with them (since you need bubbles)

3. Jergens Naturals Cocoa Butter moisturiser.

I recently reviewed the total nourishment version of this moisturiser, when I was sent both I immediately went for the total nourishment one as I loved the smell. But then I switched to using the Cocoa Butter one and haven’t looked back – it smells amazing and I find it more moisturising than the total nourishment one, which is lighter and more suitable for summer. I have pretty much finished this and now resort to hitting it on things to try and get the last dregs out…

These products were all sent free of charge for review. All opinions are honest.

    Wow my Body Shop lemon shower gel lasted me about 3 weeks!! I obviously use more than you. I’m planning a Body Shop shower gel spree since they’re 2 for £8 at the moment.

    I’m amazed by how long it lasts – using one of the shower poofy things really makes shower gel last for ages.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the 2 for £8 offer!
