Budget Beauty: Treacle Moon Iced Strawberry Dream Bath & Shower Gel (+giveaway!)

Sunday, 13 May 2012


For a long time I've seen bloggers mentioning their love of various Treacle Moon bath and shower products.  They're a fun and kitsch brand who have a cheeky, yet undeniably cute, Philosophy-esque packaging thing going on.  As I generally don't shop at Tesco (where Treacle Moon are exclusively stocked), I never bought anything, but had always wanted to try something by them to see what all the fuss was about.   I was kindly sent a bottle of their new Limited Edition Bath & Shower Gel called Iced Strawberry Dream* to try out.  I have a serious soft spot for fruity shower gels and LOVE anything strawberry scented, so this appealed to me straight away.  The fragrance of Iced Strawberry Dream is like a strawberry milkshake mixed with chewit sweets, so sugary and sweet that you just want to eat it!  But I would recommend just washing with it instead!  I found this worked best as a shower gel.  When used in a bath, the lovely scent just disappears too quickly for my liking, but in the shower, you get all of that sugary goodness combined with lots of lather. 

This new Limited Edition fragrance for Spring/Summer 2012 was created by fans who enter Treacle Moon's monthly competition with suggestions of their 'dream' fragrance.  Every 6 months, Treacle Moon select the top choice, and asks fans via Facebook to vote for different names and try out fragrances and formulations, before producing it.  I think this is quite a cool concept which allows consumers to have some kind of say in what kind of product is going to be released, after all they're the ones who will be buying it!

Treacle Moon's Limited Edition Iced Strawberry Dream Bath & Shower Gel is available to buy now, exclusively at Tesco.  For all of you Budget Beauty bargain hunters, a 500ml bottle retails for just £2.99.
