So one very kind fellow blogger out there sent me a wonderful Champney's gift set as part of the Blogger's Secret Santa run by Lady Writes (If you haven't already read her blog, you should head over there now, its amazing!). The gift set included a daily scrub, shower gel and body butter and I've been trying them out over the last couple of weeks so I thought I would share my thoughts on them with you.
First of all the packaging makes the product look a lot more high end than what it actually is. The pretty yellow colour adds a touch of summer which is perfect for at the moment when you need "a little pick me up" and it does just that.
The scent is citrus blush which I will admit I was a bit sceptical as some citrus scents can be so over powering that I feel some people think I have had a bath in oranges. However, this scent is so lovely and subtle that I can't get enough of it. It's citrus yet feminine and floral if that makes sense! I After using the shower gel and daily scrub, it also leaves my bathroom smelling nice.
I love a good shower gel that not only cleans but leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling great and this does just that. You only need to use a small amount and gently rub into damp skin. It foams up so well that you know you are getting a good clean. Using this alone made my skin feel like I had had a spa treatment.
The daily scrub applies like a shower cream and has a gently exfoliant in it which is perfect for people with sensitive skin. It is gentle to the skin so I have been able to use it everyday and feel the benefit without having sore skin. I had to use more of the product each time compared to the shower gel but that is understandable because of the nature of the scrub.
Finally onto the body butter. I'm not usually one for using butters as I tend to find them greasy and it takes ages for them to soak into my skin. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It applies like a cream and soaks in like a cream yet it has the intense moisturising properties of a body butter. The butter feels so luxurious on my skin that I feel totally pampered after using this product.
Overall, I love this range of products and will definitely be repurchasing. I would also like to say that you to the blogger who sent me this gift set as you have opened my eyes to a whole new brand of products.
Until next time
