Speed Review: Imperial Leather Foamburst Luxurious Body Wash in Nourishing Shea Butter & Orange Blossom

I've previously reviewed one of the Imperial Leather Foamburst Luxurious Body Washes in a different fragrance (click here to read) and found it to be a particularly good product to use when shaving legs, in place of more expensive shaving foam. I like that these offer something a little different (although I note that some other brands are starting to bring out their own versions now). As such, I recently repurchased a couple of bottles when they were on offer in Boots, in different scents and wanted to share my thoughts, starting with the Nourishing Shea Butter and Orange Blossom fragrance.

I liked the packaging and appreciated the clear directions. It is inherently difficult to tell how much is remaining as a result of being in shaving can style packaging, although the company do claim that one bottle gives 40 showers which is impressive.

The texture of Imperial Leather Foamburst Luxurious Body Wash is a thick gel which transforms into a soft, silky and rich foam upon dispensing. A little goes a long way and as aforementioned, I particularly enjoyed using this to shave my legs (which the company also recommend on the packaging as a suggested use). I would (again) repurchase purely for this reason.

I'd describe the scent as a fresh floral. It was much fresher than I expected and I couldn't detect the orange blossom but I found it pleasant nonetheless. I couldn't detect it on my skin following use.

Following use, my skin felt soft. I wouldn't describe it as nourished as such, but nor did my skin feel stripped or dry.

Imperial Leather Foamburst Luxurious Body Wash costs £3.15 for 200ml (I noticed there's a scent called "Marshmallow Unicorn" which just sounds so bonkers that I may have to try that next!).

Speed Review: Le Petit Marseillais Shower Gel in P'tit Grain de Sel (Little Grain of Salt)

I really like the Le Petit Marseillais brand so whenever I go over to France, I try to pick up some of their products. They're affordable and readily available in the local supermarkets and so far, I found everything I've tried to be very pleasant. As you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram (@skindeepblogger), I picked up a bottle of Le Petit Marseillais Shower Gel in P'tit Grain de Sel (Little Grain of Salt) on a recent trip & thought I'd share my thoughts with you today.

The packaging appealed to me on the shop shelf because I liked the fun font and quirky design, which  clearly communicates the key ingredient/ scent, and this is also reiterated through the aqua blue colour of the packaging. During use, I appreciated the functionality of the flip top dispenser and I also liked that I could tell how much product was remaining as I could see through the bottle.

The shower gel itself is a light blue colour, again reiterating the aquatic theme. It's a fairly liquid gel which I was able to work into a generous lather, which is perhaps unsurprising given the inclusion of SLS.

In keeping with the aquatic theme, the scent is oceanic and fresh which I enjoyed during use. I couldn't detect it on my skin following use though, which I was pleased about as it meant that it didn't interfere with other fragrance I was using.

I liked Le Petit Marseillais Shower Gel in P'tit Grain de Sel and would recommend it. I particularly enjoyed using it after the gym or on hot days as it left my skin feeling fresh and clean.
