It’s beginning to smell a lot like… roses. The upcoming holiday season is the perfect time to indulge in a little pampering, so I’m sharing my favourite rose gift sets that I’ve come across this year. Anything with a soft rose scent captures my interest, and then add in the beautiful packaging and I’m convinced.
Coming from one of my favourite rosy brands, Jurlique, this little prettily-packaged set is the perfect stocking stuffer, or as an introduction to the brand. It comes with the divinely scented rose hand cream, which is one of the best around for its nourishing but non-greasy formula. The set also comes with an exfoliating hand treatment and a cuticle oil, so it’s your all-in-one for soft hands this winter. I actually had a hand massage with Jurlique a few weeks back, and it was the dreamiest thing ever. I’m trying to recreate it with this hand cream set, and it’s almost as nice… I just want hand massages on a daily basis, really. Can that be my job next year?
Just look at the packaging. It’s beyond beautiful. I saw a preview of this collection back in July (on a very hot day!), and I’ve been in love with how it looks ever since. It’s a collaboration with Silken Favours, and every single item in the collection has equally beautiful packaging and prints. This one is definitely my favourite and I can’t bring myself to throw the box away… All of the products have the Moroccan rose scent, which has a little warmth to it so it’s never sickly or old-fashioned – it’s well worth checking out if you’ve previously thought rose wasn’t for you. I’m willing to bet this scent would convert you! Inside the luxury rose set is the moroccan rose otto body wash, moroccan pink sugar body scrub and then the suitably sparkly gold dry oil. The shower gel is my favourite; perfect for a really indulgent pampering shower.
