Hi My Lovelies,
I should have warned you all that this month was going to be full of reviews of many gifts I received during Christmas and my Birthday so apologies if it all seems so repetitive but I thought since the sales are still on, there is a high chance of picking up these products at a much cheaper rate. Most of the gifts I received on my birthday and Christmas all comprised of either Beauty, Skincare and/or Makeup. I received this gorgeous Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Voyage Set from my flat mate who also gave me the Jo Malone Pomegranate Perfume (review here). I promise not to ramble on so let's dive straight in..
The Body Shop Voyage Set
I instantly fell in love with this set because it came in the most interesting packaging I have come across in a long time and you all know I am a sucker for lovely packaging. It comes in this pink lunch box-esque contraption which has a latch that opens up to reveal its contents. It contains The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Shower Gel (250 ml), The Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion (250 ml), The Atlas Mountain Rose Perfume (EDT 50 ml) and a teeny weeny Pink Body Sponge. It has to be one of the cutest gifts I have received in a long while. The packaging takes me back to my childhood where I am pretty sure I remember my Mum buying me a similar lunch box with the same kind of latch..Deja Vu!!
The Atlas Mountain Rose Shower Gel
It smells amazing and the scent really lingers on even after your shower is over. It lathers really well just like al the other Body Shop shower gels so you really need just a little. Just as the name implies, it smells like Roses but it's not to overpowering because it also contains a blend of Musk accords which gives it its distinct fragrance.
The Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion
Similar to the shower gel, it also has a rich fragrance of Roses with a blend of Musk Accords topped off with Brazil Nut Oil, Shea Butter and Sesame Seed Oil. It feels moisturising and it leaves a nice fragrance on your skin especially if you just had a shower with the shower gel. It kind of reinforces the fragrance which I really like.
The Atlas Mountain Rose Eau de Toilette
Although it's just an EDT, I have to say the scent really lingers better than most EDTs I have tried in the past. It is definitely longer lasting than the popular Body Shop Mists and I like the slim bottle it comes in which makes it really easy for me to convert it to a handbag perfume. It is a 50 ml perfume but it does not feel that way because of the slim nature of the bottle which is really handy. Just like the other products in the scent, it also has a mix of Roses, Musk and a Woody Accents which makes this fragrance one of my current favourites.
The Teeny Weeny Body Shop Sponge
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how cute this sponge is? I know it looks rather small in the picture but make no mistakes/assumptions about how effective it is. I feel smaller sponges, like this, force you to attend to every single part of your body in a more targeted fashion. I don't use this everyday because I don't want to make my big trusty sponge jealous but I sneak this with me whenever I travel as it fits nicely in my travel pouch....shhhhh don't tell my big sponge!!
I don't think I need to say I like it because I am pretty sure it's quite obvious. I am not sure if they still sell this in The Body Shop but I think it will make a superb gift for any lady who likes anything beauty or skin care. I hope you have enjoyed this mini review and let me know what your favourite Body Shop Gift set is?..see you in my next post...x
