Christmas Gifts For Her: Botanics

Thursday, November 16, 2017
Today's post is another festive gift guide (I've been loving writing them and reading them on other blogs!) but it's a little different as I'm focusing on natural, floral or botanical inspired products which is related to a post I recently published in collaboration with The Hut Group about AW17 beauty trends of which botanicals is one.

I was very kindly sent the products in this gift guide from the lovely people over at DHC, Bodhi & Birch, Bolsius and Bloomtown so thank you! I already have posts featuring a few of these products on my blog already if you want to see more.
*DHC Double Cleanse Set (£19.95)
Skincare, especially skincare with a good reputation and some fantastic, natural ingredients, are great gift to give. I think gift sets like this one are great opportunities to try new brands and products for a fraction of the cost and this one comes with a free gift of the DHC Olive Virgin Oil Swabs (there are 50 in the box so it's a substantial free gift). 

The set also contains the famous DHC Deep Cleansing Oil which always receives rave reviews from bloggers and apparently one of these cleansers is sold every ten seconds worldwide! The cleanser contains olive oil, rosemary leaf oil and it's rich in vitamins and antioxidants. It's a double cleanse set so along with the oil cleanser, the DHC Mild Soap is also included to complete the double cleanse. Additionally the DHC Olive Virgin Oil Swabs can be used for eyeliner or mascara touch ups or for cleansing delicate areas such as the eyes using high quality cosmetics grade, ultra-gentle olive oil. This set would be great for teens or anyone really, who's new to the world of skincare and in need a good but also simple skincare set to start with. 
*Bolsius Frosted Garden Candle 
I've already reviewed a couple of Bolsius candles and tea lights, both of which are fantastic especially for the low price point. This candle smells so subtly fresh, wintery and floral that would be perfect for this time of the year and I think the colour of the wax and packaging could fit with our living and kitchen decor perfectly. 

It's a three wick candle which I haven't tried many of but they're be great for reducing tunnelling and wasted wax. The candle is part of the new limited edition range from Bolsius including other scents such as autumn walk, celebrate and home comfort, the latter I definitely want to try. Candles are such safe and easy gifts and they'd be ideal for a cosy Christmas hamper too. 
*Bloomtown Limited Edition Luxury Christmas Bauble (£9)
I obviously don't have a favourite product out of the items in this post but one that I think looks amazing and festive is this cute geometric bauble from the wonderful Bloomtown. It's a fantastic, natural and ethical brand with lovely products that are perfect for self care and pampering Christmas hampers! 

There are three baubles available in a range of three colours including navy, kraft and plum as well as marbled versions - I have the marbled plum bauble. You also have a choice of three products from a lip balm, sugar scrub and roll on infused oil, the latter is the option I have and it's the one I hoped I'd receive.

I adore the packaging, it's so photogenic and beautiful especially with the ribbon. The infused oil I have is in The Hedgerow scent which is sweet and fruity containing blackberry and honeysuckle to brighten a dreary winters day. The oil is a massive sample size of 9g so it will last a while and it's a great introduction to the brand and their amazing natural products. I cannot recommend this brand enough so definitely check out their Christmas gifts. 
*Bodhi & Birch Mini Body Oils Collection (£20)
I've reviewed a gift sets and products from the wonderful Bodhi & Birch and their Christmas gift sets are some of my favourites as they look so pretty, the products are all natural and it's a great way to try a range of their products and product scents. This set contains three body oils in the scents: 'Sicilian Rose', 'Chinois Blue' and 'Nordic White', all of which are 15ml so they're great sizes to trial each product. 

I've tried these three scents previously and I adore all three although if I had to choose a favourite then it would be tied between Nordic White and Chinois Blue but they're all so gorgeous. Body oils are such an overlooked product category; however they can be fantastic at this time of the year to give your skin some TLC and you can't go wrong with Bodhi and Birch body products! 
*Bodhi & Birch Bath & Shower Oils Collections (£30)
Last but not least is another heavenly set from Bodhi & Birch containing three 15ml bath and shower oils in the scents: Rosa Verde, La Botanics and Jasmin de Lune, none of which I've tried before. They are all natural, made in England and over 90% of the ingredients are organic. 

The Rosa Verde scent to me is a really unique rose scent as it's floral and rose scented but it contains lime, geranium and frankincense as well so it's floral, musky and rich. Next up, the Jasmin de Lune option which is a very unisex scent and I love it as to me it is so rich, deep and musky as well as a little floral. The final scent, La Botanica, might be my favourite as it's a very sweet and uplifting scent containing lemon, juniper, rosemary and eucalyptus. A wonderful set that would be great for men or women in need of a little pampering and TLC this Christmas.
