After reading a brilliant post by Catrine on N-Spa products Link I took myself off to Asda to see what I could find. I originally thought the N-Spa products were Asda's own brand, but actually they are not. You can find the full range of Nirvana Spa products here
I picked up a few skincare products (which I will post about at a later date), and the Coconut Ice Cream shower/bath gel and body cream.
At a glance, I was impressed by the packaging of the shower gel (think Philosophy), but to be honest, buying 2 for £4 I didn't hold out much hope.
The scent is lovely, very sweet, but different to a standard coconut synthetic fragrance. What has hooked me to this product though is the way it lathers in the shower. Just a small amount on one of those shower mop thingys (never know what to call them) is plenty and the lather really is the texture of double cream...masses of it. The first time I used it, I didn't follow with a body cream, and to be honest, I didn't need to. The gel in itself is extremely moisturising - I didn't feel at all dry or itchy, the way that some more expensive products make me feel
There is a note on the back of the bottle saying 'do not eat, this is not a food product' and I can assure you, it really does smell that good.
So, the body cream.....same gorgeous fragrance as the shower gel.
I generally like a body butter, and found the body cream to be fairly fluid. I used far too much on my first application and it took ages to sink in. The second time I used it, I used much less and it was a whole lot easier to use. Despite the consistency, this moisturises really well and does last throughout the day.
So happy to have found these products, I certainly don't want to be without them. I will most certainly be trying other shower products from the N-Spa range and look forward to sharing these (and my skincare) findings with you guys.
