Curiouser and Curiouser. Primark has launched a brand new Alice in Wonderland beauty range at affordable prices. I picked up the Smile body mist for £3!
How cute it the packaging? At first I did think it would be a hair product due to the glittery top but after realising it was a spray and having a play with the tester I fell in love with its sweet smell.
It doesn’t actually say anywhere on the product what it smells like and I can’t quite put my finger on it but I did find it more sweet and musky rather than fresh/fruity.
I find that the mist lasts much longer on clothing rather than on skin but that seems to be the case with most mists I’ve tried.
There’s also an Alice perfume with the same scent that retails for £8.
If you read my May Favourites post then you’ll know that I’ve been loving the Delicious Destinations body mists. The body mists come in a range of different scents and retail for £3.99 for 100ml (currently £1.98 on offer).
“Take a walk through the jungle where wild exotic fruit notes are tangled with tropical & enticing oriental floral tones”
For a 30ml of Gucci Bamboo you’re looking at around £49, for a 100ml of Jungle its around £3.99 at most.
Funnily enough there are no notes of kiwi or palm leaf in Gucci Bamboo which I find strange so they may share other notes not mentioned on the Jungle bottle but to me personally they smell so similar and I’d much rather pay £1.98/£3.99 instead of splashing out £50.
A great thing about the body mist is that it does tend to last well on clothes and is small enough to keep in your bag to spritz throughout the day, as it is cheap anyway it does not matter how often it gets used where as I don’t tend to overspray Gucci.
Does anybody else think its a good match?

*Available at Superdrug
Hands up who loves fragrance! I certainly do so I was pleased to receive the Layering Lab Body Mists as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. I received mine in the scents Oriental and Cocoon.
The idea of the mists is that you can choose two from the collection (six available scents) and layer them together to create a unique scent or you can wear them individually which I think is a great concept.
Oriental is my favourite of the two and contains the notes spice, berries and floral it also smells like Diesel Loverdose Tattoo! Cocoon has jasmine, vanilla and musk and I was less keen on this scent but purely because I’m not a vanilla fan.
I’ve never really been a body mist fan either but I can honestly say I’ve been converted and I can’t wait to try out the rest of the range! At 100ml they are perfectly handbag sized and I think the simplistic packaging is so cute.
As always with Superdrug own brands it’s cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
“Wonderstruck is a charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits, kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence” (Boots.com)
Wonderstruck I believe is the first fragrance by the pop sensation Taylor Swift who has since created other perfumes such as ‘Taylor’ and ‘Enchanted Wonderstruck’. I am a little outdated means I only purchased the perfume yesterday but it was worth it!
For £15 (Superdrug) I managed to pick up a 100ml bottle which is simply gorgeous, the lid features charms which is a nice touch and the packaging screams femininity. The scent itself is not overpowering which is always an added bonus and perfect for those of us who like floral/fruity perfumes.
“Alluring- The flawless beauty of freesia, apple blossom and raspberry spark a swirl of vibrancy and feminine allure. Authentic- In the heart, a sweet surprise of blissful vanilla is embellished by airy, sun drenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus. Engaging- Notes of golden amber and sandalwood are woven with a kiss of lush peach.” (Superdrug.com)
It’s definitely worth trying a sample next time you’re in Boots or Superdrug, for a small price tag you get a large bottle that smells simply amazing and looks fabulous.
