BAYLIS & HARDING ROSÉ PROSECCO FIZZ RANGE

Rose Prosecco Fizz Collection From Baylis and Harding

Baylis and Harding Rosé Prosecco Fizz Valentine's Collection

I have reviewed quite a few Baylis & Harding collections over the years but I have to say this latest Rosé Prosecco Fizz selection is by far my favourite. It is so luxurious looking and the scent is feminine and sweet. I also like the huge range of products and gift sets available. You can get everything from a small token gift to larger more special gift sets. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day (or indeed Mother’s Day) gifts, especially if you’re on a budget but still want a gift that looks, smells and feels luxurious, Baylis and Harding really are excellent at affordable luxury.

Rose Prosecco Fragranced Van Gift Set £8

I just fell in love with this sweet van shaped tin, it has a real Parisian vintage vibe to it which is adorable. I will be using this to store my beauty samples once it’s empty. The packaging makes it a really great gift for any female in your life. Inside you get two deluxe travel sizes of Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion as well as a pink body polisher. A great trio of pampering products and ideal sizes if you’re planning a little Valentine’s Trip!

  • 100ml hand & body lotion to leave skin feeling soft and delicately fragranced.

This duo is another great pamper treat. The pink socks are very soft, fluffy and feel cosy on your feet. They are perfect to wear after you’ve used the Soothing Foot Lotion, to keep your feet soft and looking their best. The foot lotion is a very decent size at 125ml so will last a good couple of months, it will help get those toes ready for the warmer weather. I really like the heart design on the lotion packaging it’s sweet and very pretty.

Gift Ideas From Jurlique

Christmas Gift Ideas From Jurlique

Christmas Gift Ideas From Jurlique

If you’re not already familiar with Jurlique, they’re an Australian brand which was started back in 1985 by a husband & wife dedicated to harnessing the power of nature to create incredibly effective products. Their ethos was Nature + Science = Beauty and to this day Jurlique develops high-performance skincare, using potent, biodynamic (Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition), organic and natural ingredients sourced the world over.

Jurlique has an Organic Farm in the Adelaide Hills of Australia where the magic happens and this was the brainchild of the founders Dr Jurgen Klien and his wife Ulrike, a Horticulturist and a Botanist with a passion for combining nature with science to deliver natural skincare with long-lasting effects. To this day the farm is thriving and its where many of the herbs, flowers and plants are grown for Jurlique’s products.

Jurlique Sweet Violet Grapefruit Hydrating Mist

Jurlique Sweet Violet & Grapefruit Hydrating Mist 

I am a long time user of Jurlique’s classic Rosewater Balancing Mist and always have a bottle on my desk just to refresh my skin throughout the day. I was so excited to learn they’d released a lovely limited edition version. The Sweet Violet and Grapefruit Mist are packed full of potent natural antioxidants, which help improve skins moisture levels, leaving the skin feeling hydrated, soothed and balanced.

This is such a versatile product. I like to use it on clean skin before my skincare regime, and also throughout the day to refresh my skin or indeed to refresh my makeup. It gives the skin a real boost of moisture, the scent is also very calming and a nice blend of zesty fruit and floral notes. I like that it comes out as light misting of moisture to your skin, and doesn’t drench your face.

Jurlique products always come so beautifully packaged and this hydrating mist does not disappoint. The outer box has a gorgeous purple floral design with gold writing. The purple ombre bottle itself is simply stunning, it looks so luxurious. This would make a thoughtful gift for anyone who enjoys skincare and is maybe missing out on this step in their routine.

Jurlique Skin Brightening Facial Treatment Masks

Jurlique Skin Brightening Facial Treatment Mask

2017 was the year of the sheet mask and I for one love this beauty trend. Sheet masks are the ultimate in pampering. I was very excited to hear that Jurlique had released their own sheet masks and I love that Jurlique has included an extra piece for under your chin. What a fantastic idea! It helps to keep the mask in place a lot easier

  • Helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolouration, addressing the signs of a dull, uneven skin tone.
  • The innovative formula with VitaBrightKX and other potent brightening ingredients delivers a highly concentrated solution to help inhibit melanin synthesis, reducing the appearance of dark spots and discolouration to help revive a dull looking complexion with uneven skin tone and texture.

It recommends to leave the mask on for 15 minutes but I have found with most sheet masks that you can really leave them on for longer. I tend to have a bath when I use a sheet mask so I just leave it on the whole time & that tends to be about 30 – 40 minutes. The mask fits my face well (I have quite a small face) and was easy to get into place, it felt cooling and very relaxing and there was quite a lot of product to massage in after I removed the mask which felt so nice.

You get 5 masks in each box, I have been using mine the night before a big event or indeed after. These are quite luxurious masks so I have been using them as a real skincare treat but I have to say they leave my skin feeling incredibly soft and looking fresh and radiant. In terms of reducing dark spots and uneven skin tone, this is something that takes time and I will update you if I see a positive change in my discolouration.

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer Fragrance

Viktor Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer Fragrance

Viktor Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer Fragrance

Viktor & Rolf are one of my absolute favourite perfume brands, I’ve reviewed quite a few of their releases on my blog over the years. I’ve also been a loyal wearer of their original Flowerbomb scent for almost a decade, it is a scent that holds so many happy memories for me. I get excited when they add a new scent to their range and this beautiful Bonbon Spring Summer addition is something very special. The original version was extremely popular and is more on the sweet side so this more citrus based version is different but still as beautiful.

Viktor Rolf Bonbon Bottle

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer* 

If you like the sweetness of the original Bonbon fragrance then I think you will appreciate the more refreshing, subtleness of this limited edition offering. It is the perfect scent update for Spring Summer and although it is still quite sweet like the original it is a little more warm and zesty and I think it is my favourite Bonbon scent to date.

I think this new Bonbon release is a more sophisticated version, the mix of citrus, wood and floral notes work so well together and they give you such a beautiful feminine scent. Although this limited edition version is more Spring appropriate and lighter it is still longwearing.

Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer Fragrance

Bonbon Spring Summer contains some of my favourite notes including cedarwood, musk and blackcurrant,

  • Top notes: grapefruit essential oil, tangerine essential oil, orange essential oil, blackcurrant
  • Middle notes: icing sugar accord, orange blossom absolute, sambac jasmine absolute, peach accord
  • Base notes: musks, guaiac wood essential oil, cedarwood essential oil, caramel accord

Spring Summer Perfume from Viktor and Rolf

NEW Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer Perfume

As with all Viktor and Rolf fragrances the bottle is just as stunning as the perfume itself. The outer cardboard packaging (which I can’t bare to throw away) is a bright fuchsia pink with the classic black V&R faux wax seal at the centre of a pretty ribbon effect. The bottle itself is just gorgeous, it is lighter than the original and comes in a pretty frosted luminous, pearly pink ombre effect bottle which feels very luxurious and heavy. It is shaped like a wrapped sweet (candy), its very feminine and looks pretty sat on your dressing table.

So if you’re looking for a scent that is perfect for the warmer months then I recommend trying this fresh, warm, citrus scent. It is a great twist on the original but perfectly updated for Spring Summer!

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer EDT 50ml – £58 and is available from John Lewis, Selfridges, Boots and Online at Escentual.com

Timothy Dunn THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

Timothy Dunn THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

Timothy Dunn THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

Timothy Dunn The Votive Collection*

I was first introduced to Timothy Dunn back in 2015 when I fell in love with their exquisite Arabian Fig Candle and over the past two years I’ve enjoyed discovering more about this brand. I not only fell in love with Timothy Dunn’s luxurious candles but also their story and passion for quality and I think that is always something worth supporting.

Timothy Dunn is a small family run business based from their home city of London. Since opening their first florist in back in 1989 they continue to grow. From their love of flowers and a passion for travel they initially created bespoke candles for top clients and after proving popular the Timothy Dunn luxury scented candle range was born.

Each of their candles comes beautifully presented, set within a beautiful hand-blown glass and I have repurposed all the jars after the candles have burnt down, they’re just too pretty to throw away.

Timothy Dunn Candles THE VOTIVE COLLECTION

The Votive Collection is a trio of deluxe travel sized candles that come in three beautiful luxurious scents. I’m no stranger to the Arabian Fig scent but the other two candles in this set I’m excited to be trying for the first time.

Arabian Fig – Wild Fig & Cashmere Wood

A complex blend of green fig leaf, basil and clove, tenderly enhanced with frankincense, this deliciously aromatic candle has a hint of wild fig, cassis rose and jasmine with the rich base notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

Violette de Lune – Neroli & Wild Jasmine

This deep, exotic, floral scent is intertwined with seductive amber woods and elegant musks, opening with cassis and dark violet. An indulgent blend of the precious oils Moroccan rose and neroli flower are combined with sensual sandalwood, patchouli, red tea, wild jasmine and a hint of luxurious dark chocolate

Samarkand – Suede Musk & Patchouli

Discover a rich, sensual spicy wood accord with exotic tea, bergamot, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove; generously wrapped in sumptuous Madagascan vanilla, suede musks, frankincense, patchouli and vetiver.

All three candles in this collection are sophisticated, rich and quite masculine which is right up my street. Timothy Dunn candles burn very clean and evenly, with no sooty residue, their rich scent fills your entire home and lingers long after you blow them out. Each 70g Votive candle has a burn time of 15 – 20 hours. I tend to burn mine for 1 – 2 hours a time and blow them out because the scent is that strong it will still fill your room for hours after its stopped burning, which I love!

Timothy Dunn Luxury Candle Collection

THE VOTIVE COLLECTION from Timothy Dunn

This collection feels and looks very luxurious, right from the outer packaging to the scent of the candles, you just get the feeling that no expense has been spared. The Votive Collection comes beautifully packaged in a Limited Edition Gift Box which makes it the perfect gift for Valentines Day or as an extra special treat to yourself!

I know more expensive luxury candles are not for everyone but if your budget can stretch or if you are able to ask for one for a special occasion I can’t recommend Timothy Dunn Candles enough, the quality, burn time and wonderfully intense scent are more than worth the price tag. This particular collection would make the most thoughtful gift and It is also a great way of introducing someone to Timothy Dunn scents, especially if they love their luxury candles.

You can get this beautiful Votive Collection here for £60 and until February 14th Timothy Dunn are offering 20% off with code LOVETDL

This Timothy Dunn London Votive collection is the ultimate gift of luxury for yourself or a loved one to enjoy all year round.
