HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Yes it is! I know! How fast did that last year disappear!
No doubt all of us will have made some new years resolutions to change something about ourselves or our home. Whether it be lose weight, stop smoking, paint the bedroom, sort the garden, we will all be trying to improve or change something. So with this in mind, throughout January I am going to be running a 'New Year, New You' giveaway series!
I have been lucky enough to score you, my lovely readers some great prizes. And today is the start of them.
My first lovely giveaway sponsor is Boux Avenue
Although usually known for its beautiful lingerie the giveaway prize up for grabs today is actually a 'Pink Taffeta' Gift set containing: a hand wash, body butter and 'rose petal' lip balm.
I was lucky enough to be able to try out all these goodies for myself so here is my review on them.
Pink Taffeta Hand Wash
We now keep this by the kitchen sink! Everyone in the house loves the smell and how much it lathers - even the boys. Pink Taffeta smells of roses mainly although the description also lists amber and peony as ingredients. The floral sent isn't too overpowering or strong though it's just subtle enough. As I said the lathering is great so a little goes a long way.
Pink Taffeta Body Butter
So smooth and soft this cream is really luxurious but not at a high cost £12 usually but £6 on sale at the moment! I would really advise you to buy some. Again the smell is floral but not too strong and it really does leave your skin silky smooth. I felt I had to use a fair bit of it though as it sunk in to the skin very fast so didn't stretch very far. I feel it would probably be for special occasions rather than a daily moisturiser.
Rose Petal Lip Balm
Simply the smell of this stuff will make you swoon, possibly the best smelling lip balm I have come across in a while, and I have tried many! Made with real rose petal essential oil you can really smell the difference between this and the factory made scents you often get in lip balms. This gives a great shine to you lips, but on the down side doesn't actually moisturise them at all, or protect from the harsh weather like vaseline would, it's also a little oily but I guess this is due to the essential oil which make it smell so good. I suppose you can't have everything. I still love it though and usually use it in work and to go out in the evenings.
Onto the giveaway bit!
The winner will be chosen at random and will receive a gift set containing all 3 items from Boux Avenue.
This is open internationally, just remember to leave you email address in one of the entries so I can contact you.
