I have a couple of really gorgeous Christmas special editions to show you today. These would make a lovely gift for anyone in your life who enjoys beauty products, or who needs a bath (but you’re trying to tell them in a kind way).
They’re both from the L’Occitane family – from the L’Occitane en Provence range, plus its sister organic skincare brand Melvita. Here’s what’s in the Melvita bauble:
Melvita beauty baubles
The Melvita bauble is a metallic pink globe etched with gold. It contains 4 products and retails at £11. Inside, wrapped in cream and gold tissue paper you’ll find:
- L’Or Bio Shower Gel 40ml
- L’Or Bio Body Milk 40ml
- L’Or Bio Soap 20g
- Extraordinary Oil 9ml
The oil is a great multi-tasking product that can be used for body or hair. As travel sizes go they’re quite decent – think hotel room toiletry size. They’ve got a really rejeuvenating floral and fruity scent that hits you as soon as you prize apart the two halves of the oval.
And here’s what’s in the L’Occcitane Festive Bauble:
L’Occitane Festive Bauble
There are three varieties of L’Occitane bauble available this year. You can buy one for £10 or all three for £25. This is the Cherry Blossom variety, and like the others it contains three products:
- Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel 35ml
- Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 10ml
- Cherry Blossom Shimmering Lotion 35ml
The other baubles are Shea Butter and Verbena varieties, and both contain a small soap, hand cream and body lotion. As you might expect, the cherry blossom variety smells of Spring, so whilst it’s not quite season-appropriate it is a welcome blast of sunshine.
I think these beauty baubles are a lovely gift, and really good value. They’re definitely a cut above your regular toiletry sets.The metal bauble packaging for both is very sturdy, so you could keep it and fill again with anything you fancy. Both have a golden ribbon threaded through the top so you could hang them on your Christmas tree. And if you find that the current crop of beauty advent calendars are a stretch for your pocket, pop one of these in your Christmas stocking instead.
The L’Occitane Festive Baubles are currently on sale here at £10 for one and £25 for three.
The Melvita beauty baubles will be available from December on their website, RRP £11
