I am a massive fan of The Body Shop products especially the Body Butter which I find fantastic. Having been chosen to review this Christmas Set I could not wait to receive it. The box is really good quality and looks really festive (in a modern way). When I opened it you can smell the sweetness of the strawberry scent. The gift box consists of Strawberry Shower Gel 250ml, Strawberry Body Butter 50ml, Strawberry Body Polish 75ml, Strawberry Soap 100g and a Red Mini Bath Lily.
Strawberry Shower/Bath Gel 250ml
The smell as you open the bottle is fantastic. It lathers up really well, especially if you use the mini red bath lily. It leaves your skin feeling really soft and also squeaky clean. The scent is quite strong so obviously you would only use it if you like the fragrance of strawberries. Highly recommend this as a good quality shower gel.
Strawberry Body Polish 75ml
After the shower gel I tried the body polish, again using the bath lily. I found it just the right texture as some polishes can feel quite abrasive, the exfoliating effect was increased by using the bath lily. The fragrance is not quite as strong as the shower gel, but is really lovely. My skin was left feeling soft and tingly. Again a top quality product from Body Shop!!!!
Strawberry Body Butter 50ml
OK, this is my favourite item from The Body Shop, and I have tried them in many different fragrances. The strawberry is no disappointment. It has a thick texture and goes onto your skin without leaving a greasy residue. I used it everywhere including on my feet before I went to bed and even in the morning my skin moisturised and really soft. This is a fabulous product which I cannot recommend highly enough. It smells good enough to eat!!!!
Strawberry Soap 100g
I am not a massive soap user, as I find they go soft when left on the side of the sink and leave a mess. This soap retains its firmness and does not leave marks on the sink. I only used it on my hands but was very impressed and would definitely use it again.
To summarise this is a lovely gift for someone special and I think anyone would be over the moon to receive it. It looks classy and also has the added bonus of not being tested on animals, along with the backing of The Body Shop brand. Price wise there is cheaper gift sets on the market but in my opinion this is worth every penny and it comes neatly packaged and well presented, ready to give as a Christmas gift!
