“ Brand: Winter in Venice / Body Care Type: Gift Set „
Everyone who knows me will know how much I love all things Vanilla. And as I already own almost every Vanilla product out there, each year my lovely friends and family search for a scrumptious Vanilla scented surprise that I don't already have in my cluttered bathroom.
The Winter in Venice, Warm Vanilla Marshmallow Wooden Cupboard Pamper Gift (Gosh that's a mouthful!) was most certainly a lovely gift for me and so it would be for any Vanilla fiend out there.
I hadn't heard of the brand, Winter in Venice, before receiving this. I have since found out that it is a company that specialises in producing glorious gift sets which are displayed in unique and reusable packaging, each which a delicious theme. Their products are natural, free from parabens and never tested on animals.
The Vanilla scented products comes enclosed within a beautiful miniature wooden cupboard with two long doors, each with a transparent window, a detailed tiny handle and golden hinges. The cupboard has a draw at the front and a little cubby hole just above the draw. The base of the wardrobe is curved in shape and the wood has a marked pattern. The cupboard is fairly sturdy and can be reused for a storage or display purpose. The cupboard is also available in white but within that one, you'll find fresh linen scented products instead of Vanilla.
Inside the cute little cupboard, you will find a Vanilla fragranced bath and body set that contains everything you need for a relaxing and pampering time. Each product has a sweet but not sickly aroma that is both delicious and long lasting.
Inside the two long cupboard doors, you will store your toffee coloured shower gel and a caramel coloured bubble bath. Both have screw top lids and smell good enough to eat. The bubble bath creates plenty of bubbles when run under hot water and the bubbles remain with you for the duration of your bath. You can smell the product whilst in the water but unfortunately, the yummy fragrance doesn't stay on your skin. That's not a problem though as the other products can help out in that area.
The shower gel has a lovely consistency that foams nicely when used with a sponge and leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean and moisturised. You use the natural sponge that has been included within the gift set that is rough enough to also perform an exfoliating action. Used in addition with the soap, you really will be squeaky clean when you leave the bathroom.
Also included is bath salts which is a product that I don't tend to use but I thought I would give it a go as I'd been given this set. They dissolve easily in the water so you are not sitting on any gritty hard bits and my skin felt lovely and soft when I got out. The body lotion included also smells scrumptious and is easily absorbed by the skin. It leaves no greasiness on the my body, simply a healthy sheen, and the fragrance is long lasting and remains on the skin.
I know that you should never ask the price of a gift, but I did, and it cost in the region of £30. It isn't widely available so I don't think the price will vary greatly but it's always worth having a shop around online.
This product just screams luxury going from the way the products can be displayed on your dresser to the contents of the products themselves. Each separate product contains natural ingredients that nourish the skin and leave you feeling healthy from head to toe.
Admittedly if you go too wild and use the products all together too often, it can get a little overwhelming, even for the most dedicated Vanilla fan. Used sparingly though, the aroma is delicious and you really do feel pampered.
I don't display the products in the cupboard as the perfectionist, (if that's the right word), in me doesn't like the front drawer being in the open position. I display the products around my bathtub and the cupboard is now used as a jewellery and knick knack box on my dresser table. The cupboard is sturdy enough. I don't think it would take that much rough and tumble but I don't think it will see much of that sitting on my dresser.
If you find that you love this product, then there are plenty of others available in the collection. You can choose between the likes of the Sage Gardening Pots Pamper Gift Set, the Coconut African Spa Basket Pamper Gift Set and the Musk Ceramic Bath Tub Pamper Gift set, amongst others. There really is something for everyone and they will make such a lovely gift for someone else or a glorious treat for yourself.
All in all, this gift set contains everything that you would need for the ultimate bath time pampering experience. The products are natural, smell delicious and leave you feeling fresh and clean and your skin feeling soft and smooth. This is the perfect gift for the ultimate Vanilla fan.
