“ Brand: Normandie Keith / What it does: Cleanses / Type: Beauty Bag „
Normandie Keith is an ex model and beauty editor who has branched out into producing her own range of products. Her website tells us she wants us to feel like we are at a permanent pyjama party and that her goal is for us to have "that magic and whimsy of being a woman while maintaining the heart of a little girl". I'm so glad I didn't read that nonsense before I tried the products otherwise I would have avoided them.
The Normandie Keith gorgeous gift bag is a small pink cardboard gift bag containing cleanse me softly body wash, scrub a dub dub body scrub, butter me up body butter and a facecloth. It is only available in Tesco and I paid £4 for it, normal price is £6. The only gripe I have with this particular gift set is the small sizes of the products, just 50ml of the scrub and body butter and 75ml of the body wash means you will look really mean if you give it as a present.
The cleanse me softly body wash contains sicilian lemon and bergamont. The smell is really zesty, it lathers up wonderfully and always leaves me feeling squeaky clean.
The body scrub contains medium sized bits of something, not quite sure what but it lathers a bit and is mildly exfoliating and the smell of lemon and grapefruit is divine.
The butter me up body butter is a whipped cream, in appearance and texture very similar to the soap and glory body butter. Again the smell is lovely a mix of lemon and bergamont. It is smooth and silky and is instantly absorbed and the lovely smell lingers all day.
The pink spotted cotton flannel is lovely and soft, again it feels very luxurious and girly.
Normandie Keith products are only available from Tesco. The packaging has the same retro feel to it as soap and glory products with 50s women on the front but without the high price tag. The scent is young and fresh and I can imagine the products will have a wide appeal. Theres several products stocked in my local Tesco and now I've tried them I imagine I'll pick up a couple of gifts from the range for my loved ones and myself over the festive period. The range looks and feels luxurious but without the high price tag making it an affordable luxury.
I think this gift bag is gorgeous and I love the new look to the products. I have already bought 3 for my nieces. :)
