Scented Skin Care
I Love…Cosmetics Ltd is quickly becoming another drugstore favourite brand of mine. Much like the cheeky Soap & Glory brand, I Love is also based out of the UK, but can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. This exciting bath and beauty line is made from high quality, natural ingredients, and is an affordable way to get delicious and yummy scented products at home. The scents include Raspberry & Blackberry, Coconut & Cream, Strawberry & Cream and Mango & Papaya and come in an array of bath gels, lotions, exfoliating scrubs and fruity spritzers.
I Love Strawberry & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Gel is formulated with a unique skin softening vitamin complex to help moisten and keep skin super soft and supple. It also contains natural extracts of strawberry to help you feel scrumptious. It has a slightly thinner consistency that’s rich and creamy and lathers extremely well. It cleanses the skin and leaves it feeling refreshed, hydrated and super soft. It has the sweet and fruity scent of fresh strawberries.
For a shower gel junky, it’s very rare for me to use the same shower gel throughout the week. I’m constantly switching up my shower gel, at least every other day, but ever since this I Love Strawberry & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Gel made its way into my shower, it’s all I’ve been using. If you’re a fan of Philosophy 3 in 1 shower gels, you’re going to love this more affordable option. It’s almost half the price of Philosophy, with the same great results. Although this only claims to be a shower gel and bubble bath, you know I had to see if it gives the same great results as a shampoo as Philosophy does. Happy to report, it does. Its silky texture provides great lather and slides onto the skin with ease, when used as a shower gel. It delivers an incredible about of bubbles when used as a bubble bath with only the smallest amount and also cleanses the hair of dirt, oil and buildup when used as a shampoo. The fragrance is extremely strong, which I look for in a body wash. I hate struggling to smell the body wash, and although it’s quite fragranced, it does slowly start to fade away, within 10 minutes, after being out of the shower. It not only leaves skin feeling clean, soft and hydrated, it also cleanses and leaves hair ultra smooth and soft. It retails for $9.99 for 500ml.
I Love Raspberry & Blackberry Nourishing Body Butter is formulated with coconut oil and shea butter to help leave your skin feeling gorgeously nourished and silky soft and smooth. It’s lightly fragranced perfume leaves your skin smelling beautiful with a burst of yummy raspberry and delicious blackberry. It has a rich and creamy, almost air whipped texture that has somewhat of a cooling effect once applied to the skin. Its silky smooth formula spreads onto the skin with ease, just like butter, and almost melts into the skin. It’s fully absorbed within a minute with a freshly squeezed raspberries and succulent blackberries scent.
I love all body butters that come in large tubs, it ensure I get every last drop and don’t end up wasting product. I Love Raspberry & Blackberry Nourishing Body Butter leaves your skin feeling hydrated and moisturized with a delightful fruity scent. It leaves my rough elbows, knees, and feet super soft that lasts throughout the day. I love that it spreads easily and absorbs almost instantly, leaving not much downtime. It’s non- greasy and non-sticky and leaves behind a beautiful, healthy sheen to the skin. It retails for $9.99 for 20ml.
