I always think a good pamper product is such a great present ; something you don’t necessarily think as a priority for yourself, but something that is oh-so-wonderful when you need it that once in a while! Whether it be an aromatic body cream, a face mask, a scrub, a gorgeous candle or a soothing face product….pamper gifts, in my opinion, are some of the best to give and receive!
I think after what can only be described as an intensely stressful and worrying year for us all, there’s no time like Christmas 2020 to be gifting loved ones with something to soothe, calm and give them reason for some serious ME TIME. These are my tried and tested favourite pamper products, with prices ranging from £3.95 to £62 so there is something hopefully for anyone and everyone….and maybe even your lovely self!
Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn Rose Velvet Body Melt (£31.50) For transparency, I very recently did a paid collaboration with Crabtree & Evelyn, but it’s something I often include in my bath and body / pamper gifting recommendation so I wanted to definitely include this! It’s a gorgeous, aromatic and sumptuous body cream that works to soften and soothe the toughest of skins! Melts from a cream to an oil upon contact with the skin and literally melts away!
Eve & Keel Reset Face Mist (£35) I have a few products from this gorgeous Aromatherapy range and I love everything I have tried. This facial mist is super calming and reviving and I have it on my desk at the moment for when I need a burst of hydration and a bit of an uplift in my day. It contains notes of Vetiver, Orange Blossom and Ylang Ylang and has been created to shift your energy in a positive way. Comes in a recyclable glass bottle that is handmade in small batches in the UK.
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm (£47) Is any explanation even needed at this point as to why I include this cleanser in pretty much every single gift post?! Do it.
Neal’s Yard Aromatic Bath Foam (£15.50) I have used this for SO many years. I love their soaks and salts and they all smell incredible. I flit between this aromatic one and the Seaweed/Arnica.
Sensory Retreats Divine Eye Mask (£3.95) These are self-heating soothing, calming and lulling eye patches that are perfect to get you in that pre-sleep mood and ensure you get a great night’s sleep. infused with lavender, these not only warm and soothe the eye area but of course, block out any light and they just feel and smell incredible!
Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Hydro-Mist (£43) I have talked about this for quite some time now! It’s a gorgeous facial mist-serum hybrid. More than just a burst of hydration, this contains English Rose Hydrolat and Micro Algaes to ensure optimum and long-lasting skin care benefits. It feels like a real skin treat and can be used pre-serum as an extra boost or over your face throughout the day.
Sanctuary Spa Shower Oil (£7) I have a few of the Sanctuary bath & body products on the go at the moment (the bath foam is also gorgeous FYI) but this Shower Oil is super pampering and leaves you feeling really looked-after, cocooned and it’s such a pleasure to use! It contains omegas 3, 6 and 9 to ensure your skin stays hydrated and has an opulent honey-like texture.
Verdant Alchemy Bath & shower Oil (£42) Such a gorgeous brand! This small aromatherapy bath & body company do the most wonderful bath oils and salts and I’m truly addicted. They smell SO very strong, I feel like I’m in a spa when I’m having a bath and it simply does what it says on the tin. I love the Retreat scent which is to relax and lift spirits with notes of Ylang Ylang and Lavender.
Aurelia Cell Repair night Oil (£62) I remember trying a small sample of this last year and it was one I kept to the side as soon as I had used it as I knew I needed to purchase the full size immediately. The SMELL is incredible with a blend of Neroli, Rose, Mandarin and Lavender and it’s just such a pampering treat to use before bed.
Jurlique Rose Hand Cream (£43) An absolute classic and always such a well-received gift. This rich and nourishing hand cream gives intense hydration without residue and smells divine. Also it’s perfect for this time of year when hands can get sore, dry and more peely than ever!
Tropic Soothe The Senses Body Oil (£28) I’m really into my Tropic at the moment and their body products are really luxurious and sensory to use. This body oil not only looks incredible with the everlasting flower suspended in the bottle but it’s an absolute JOY to use and smells incredible with notes of Frangipani & Monoi oil which smells of Tatianan flowers.
Aromatherapy Associates Bath & Shower Oil (£49) The ORIGINAL bath & shower oil that never fails to impress me. I think I have purchased the *ENTIRE* range now and have the newest Rose one on route to me as we speak. I’m a big advocate of these, they are pricey but they just really work and are an absolutely wonderful gift. If in doubt…..always go for ‘Deep Relax’ which is their best-seller.
Tropic So Sleepy Pillow Spray (£20) another great product from Tropic and a great little add-on gift or stocking filler is this lovely pillow mist. Infused with lavender, eucalyptus and frankincense.
The Botanical Candle Company Quietude Candle (from £12) I think I always include one of these candles in my gift guides as they are so beautiful and I love the simple, elegant packaging. This is a local company to me and they sell such beautiful things in their small shop! I have tried many of the candles and this is always a go-to for gifts as it is their all time best seller!
Cowshed Blissful Bath & Shower Gel (£20) I think everyone loves a bit of Cowshed at Christmas. It’s such a recognisable brand now and it’s actually pretty reasonable priced. I love the Blissful range which contains notes of Ylang Ylang and Rose.
Evolve Organic Beauty 360 Smoothing Contour Body Cream (£30) A sumptuous and rich body cream that is alll about firming, smoothing and hydrating. Granted you may not want to gift this to the mother-in-law but for a mate you rate and love...it’s a really lovely pamper product!
