Fruity Supermarket Purchases

Today I popped into Morrisons to pick up a few baking supplies (if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen these!) as I'm going to have a go at making some Empire Biscuits. I haven't baked anything for years so I'm not sure how they will turn out but I'm sure I'll have fun trying.

Whilst food shopping I always have to stroll down the toiletries aisle to see if anything catches my eye and on this occasion I found some goodies!

This morning I used the last few pumps of my Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash so I was looking for something new to use in the shower and I spotted these Galvin & Galvin Kids Dubble Trubble 2 in 1 Shampoo & Body Washes. I don't normally buy kids products but the packaging really caught my eye and I had to have a sniff. I absolutely love banana flavoured/scented things so I knew I'd love the Bananaberry one. It smells sooo good, a bit like bubblegum! My next choice was Cherry Bomb which smells delicious. It's like Cherryade!

I won't be using these as a shampoo but I'm sure they will be a fun treat to use in the shower. They were £2.50 each or two for £4.00. I think there were four scents available. Another thing worth mentioning is that they are organic. They are formulated to be gentle on the skin and are completely SLES, SLS and paraben free. Although I don't set out to buy organic products, it's great when you find your purchases don't contain any of those nasties!

I was running slightly low on conditioner and wasn't sure which one to buy so I started sniffing lots of those too! I ended up choosing an Alberto Balsam one for only a pound! It's a Mandarin and Papaya scented one that is for normal/dry hair. It smells so nice and fruity! It's funny because yesterday I was browsing £20 bottles of conditioner online then today I buy one for £1! I'm looking forward to trying it anyway.

In fact I'm really looking forward to having a very fruity shower with all these gorgeous smelling products! I'm quite happy with my £5 spend as I normally spend more than that on just one product.

Have you picked up any bargains lately? Do you ever find any gems at the supermarket?


  1. Mandarin sounds like a great smell!

  2. Yum, they sound delicious! I'm a huge fan of fruity-scented products too so I'd snap them up.
    Going to have to Google Empire biscuits now, hopeyours turned out well.
