My daughter was rather savvy last Christmas when she did her shopping and took full advantage of the 3-for-2 offer on beauty gift sets in Boots, I received a nice enough Nivea pampering pack from her on Christmas Day but had to wait until my birthday in May to be given this wonderful Oriental Opulence gift set which she'd picked up as part of the promotion and stashed with my birthay in mind!
This is a really gorgeous set filled with four small (and very wonderful) products, I've not long got around to using the set as I have so many toiletries that things get lost and forgotten about - which is good in a way as it means I'm forever finding bits and pieces to use that I didn't know I had!
The fragrance of all the products is the same, slightly oriental but with a delicious sweetness that makes them smell at least as good as anything you'd find in Lush - actually I'm not usually a fan of the fragrance of Champneys products but Oriental Opulence has become a firm favourite very quickly as the sweet candy-like aroma really appeals to me.
In the set there was a pot of body polish which is fantastic, a small bottle of bubble bath, shower gel and body lotion - I seem to recall there was a shower scrunchie in there too, although that could have come from another Champneys gift set (it's super quality anyway). I love the shower gel so much that this morning I bought a large tube as it makes my skin lovely and soft plus makes me smell wonderfully sweet for hours.
I love these types of gift set as they're a good way to 'try before you buy' and I'm sure I'll be replacing some of these small products soon, the only issue for me is that when I used more than one Oriental Opulence product out of this lovely little set the fragrance became a little too sweetly cloying - that's not a big deal but as I do like to layer my fragrance it's a bit disappointing that Champneys didn't consider this.
I'm not sure how much it cost as it was a gift and the price would have changed since last Christmas, I'm guessing she would have paid roundabout £8 for it which is exellent value for the opportunity to try out some of these lovely pampering toiletries.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a gift set of Champneys products. There are 4 products that are in the set and they are packed into a bright red box. I have had more than one of these sets and the box changes but the contents do not.
WHAT IS IN THE SET?
The products are small sizes like in most gift sets but I like that because it helps me to try all different things and if I do not like something it is easier for me to use it up then if I had a big bottle or pot.
There is a shower cream that is in a tube, a bottle of Bubble Heaven bubble bath, a pot of Body Glow scrub and a pot of body cream also. These all have got the fragrance of Oriental Opulence and I think that is a very beautiful fragrance that I like alot.
WHAT I THINK
I like to use the items out of my gift set but I think I would not like to have the full size produce except for the shower cream because I like that very much. I hope that I will be gifted another set this Christmas and I might buy one for myself also before christmas.
They do not feel like luxury to use but the smell makes them feel like luxury I think, I do not get any very good effects on my skin when I use them even though they are very pleasing to use. I think that Body Glow is a very good product but I have got scrubs that work better even if they do not smell so nice.
I think this is a very nice gift set to be given because it is a pleasure to unwrap it and to try out using these beautiful products. I would buy it for any lady who I know likes to pamper herself because Champneys is a good brand and I think these products are all very nice to use also. I feel like they have been picked to go together good and they do that, you can use the products together and that makes the sweet fragrance very strong on your body. I use them at night so that I smell nice while I am relaxing and when I go to bed.
This gift set costs about £13 and that is very cheap I think because it is a very nice gift and looks to me like it would cost more.
