I received this lovely Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit Luxury Slipper Gift Set to review. It’s a gorgeous gift set that you could give someone special as a lovely pampering treat.
It’s a high-quality gift box in cream with shiny gold details and black Baylis & Harding ribbon and bow trim. It even includes a gift tag to write your own message on.
The box has a clear display window to the front and even includes a clever peep hole to allow you to experience the feel of the super soft fluffy slippers inside. The box has a nice black soft rope handle at the top for carrying.
On opening the box, I found 2 generous sized products, which are Paraben free and not tested on animals, along with the gorgeous white super soft faux fur mule slippers.
Starting with the Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit Foot Soak Crystals. There are 100g of crystals and these are packaged in a nice little gift box. There are enough crystals to allow for several pampering sessions! I was excited to try these as I had very sore and achy feet after a long day at work. I followed the instructions and dissolved some of the crystals in a large bowl of warm water. I then poured myself a glass of wine, sat down and immersed my feet in the bowl of warm and fragrant water. The crystals are a citrus fragrance, which is lovely and fresh. It was so nice to just sit quietly and enjoy a bit of ‘me’ time. I rarely have chance to pamper my feet, so this was a great way to make me do just that!
Once the water started to get a little too cool, I popped my feet out onto a warm fluffy towel and patted them dry.
Next, I took out the Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit Foot Lotion. This product comes in a 140ml tube. It looks high quality in its black tube with gold lettering and gold screw off cap.
The lotion had the same fruity fragrance, not too overpowering though. It was easily squeezed from the tube and not too messy. I massaged the lotion gently into my feet and it felt amazing! My skin was feeling lovely and soft and really refreshed. Once absorbed, my skin felt super smooth and there was no sticky residue which you can sometimes get with this type of lotion. I would recommend they swap the cap for a flip top cap though, as it is a bit tricky to screw the cap back on the tube when you have slippery hands from massaging the foot lotion in!
I removed the super soft faux fur mule slippers from their packaging, these state that they are a size Medium which suits sizes 4-7. I am a 6.5 to a 7 usually, but these slippers only just fit me. My heel is teetering over the end of the sole, so I think the sizing could be a little better with these. It felt amazing to slip my pampered toes inside these super soft and cosy slippers after my pampering session though, and this completed it perfectly.
What a lovely little treat this was. My feet were left feeling relaxed and revived as promised. This luxurious set will make a perfect gift for someone for Christmas or for a ‘Just Because’ gift for someone to treat themselves to a little indulgent time. These products are well packaged and displayed, smell gorgeous and even include the slippers which will last well (the gift that keeps on giving)! I will be buying one of these sets for my friend who works really hard and is on her feet all day – I am sure she will enjoy this as much as I have.
