Merry Christmas everyone- I hope you had an incredibly special time!
Christmas has just come and gone and boy do I have the Boxing Day treat for you! If there is one thing I could recommend, its the Clarins Eau De Jardins- Sweet Refresh Gift Set.
I have never been the gift set kind of gal. I guess I never had urge to get one. But I had been lusting after a few of the Clarin’s traditional products in my local Farmers Department Store, so I popped into store in early December.
I am sure you have heard me say that it is coming into Summer here in New Zealand. It is the time of sun, fun and when I, personally, up my game in the body care department. I needed a new body moisturiser and wanted a special shower gel. I wanted a new scent that would linger. It was finally time to treat myself, and treat myself I certainly did!
Clarins is a brand I very much look up to. I watched my mother using their products when I was young. She always taught me to be kind to myself. If you have been here a while you will know I have a mantra. “When you look good, you feel good” she used to say. I believe it is very true. From a young age I was taught to take pride in my appearance and take some time for myself. Clarins does that for me. Their products make me feel special when I use them. Skincare and Makeup alike.
Another thing about me that I will let you in on, is I love scent. I love to be the one that people say “You smell so good!” or “Your house, it smells divine!” Don’t you feel that way, or is it just me? There is just something about someone who ensures they smell clean, fresh and good.
The Eau Des Jardins scent is very summer appropriate, and I fell in love as soon as my senses took it in. It is fresh, crisp, slightly mature but also sweet. It is a very whole citrusy scent at first, but has notes of rose underneath that soften and sweeten the perfume. I knew I had to have it. I exclaimed I wanted the entire range, and obviously couldn’t make that purchase. The Clarins counter assistant alerted me to the gift box. It had to be mine.
In the set from Farmers came a full size body lotion, full size fragrance and full size shower gel. Alongside this it also came with a travel size shower gel, travel size body lotion and a bonus full size hand cream (great timing too, mine had almost run out!). I was set. And in love.
If you are on the lookout for a new scent or want a good Boxing Day treat, I would highly recommend investing in some of these products, or the Clarins Eau des Jardins- sweet refresh gift set- its truly something!
