Molton Brown The Patisserie Parlour Collection

I’ve been trying out the trio of hand creams from the Gourman Collections that are available in a beautiful Spring Indulgences Hand Cream Gift Set£25. All three hand creams smells incredible and are perfect for Spring / Summer. This non greasy formula feels very hydrating and leave your hands feeling soft, smooth and comfortable. These 40ml sized tubes are an ideal size and will mean you will be able to leave one on your desk, by your bed and of course in your handbag.

So let Molton Brown take you on a journey through the English countryside this Spring.

Comice Pear & Wild Honey / London via Gloucestershire

‘An Orchard of pear trees, ripe with plump fruit. Rambling wildflowers scattered in the grass. The charming hum of honey bees. Melt into the warmth of sun-drenched English meadows.’

This has such a sweet, crisp scent and it very much reminds me of warm Summer evenings.

The fragrance opens with green leaves refreshed by hints of bergamot and layered with petals of gardenia. The heart reveals a juicy pear embellished by jasmine and lily of the valley, evolving into a base of mouth-watering honey, caramel and biscuit.

Delicious Rhubarb and Rose / London via Yorkshire

‘A crimson summer tart. Freshly picked roses. Bowls of sugar, spice and all things nice. Treat your hands to a recipe of tart rhubarb with a citrus twist.’

This has a rich floral scent with a lovely zesty layer.

‘Rhubarb spikes a bitter top note assty fruits fizz with a citrus twist. These contrast with the sweetness of sugary tart in the base while gentle rose extract and vanilla bring to life the buttery pastry of dessert.’

Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Hand Cream / London via Cornwall

‘A luxurious moisturising hand cream blended with white truffle extract and scented with floral notes of lily of the valley and magnolia.’

I live in Cornwall so I feel like this is the scent for me, it’s a pretty mix of Spring floral notes that are quite light but have a classic timelessness about them. This is going straight into my handbag.

This indulgent fragrance is blended with lily of the valley and star anise, enhanced by floral notes of magnolia and ylang-ylang for instant hydration. 

Why not Indulge your Mum with something from this limited edition Gourmand Collection, featuring a hand wash £18, hand lotion £23, hand cream £10 and a fantastic selection of gift sets available now at Molton Brown

Balance Me Rose Otto Gift Set

As Mother’s Day gifts go this beautiful Rose Otto Gift Set from balanceMe is the perfect trio of indulgent, pampering skincare treats. Mum’s can be hard to buy for so I always think products that encourage them to take some ‘me time’ are a winner.

These 3 products have been handpicked by balanceMe founders Rebecca & Claire and are packed with their signature blend of Rose Otto, Rose Geranium and Palma Rose essential oils.The delicate scent of rose is well-known for its stress relieving qualities. So not only do they smell incredible they also soothe, calm and hydrate the skin.

Balancing Rose Otto Gift Set £40

Rose Otto Body Wash 280ml

Ideal for even sensitive skin this sulphate free body wash is both moisturising and soothing. The beautiful rose aroma and essential oils make for an indulgent treat for both your skin and your mind. The trio of Pure Rose Oils help to strengthen fragile skin and deeply hydrate to smooth away fine lines. It is a lovely way to relax and pamper after a long day. The packaging is really nice too and it comes in a lovely apothecary style bottle with simple pretty twist and the game changer for me is the fact it has a pump. I love bodycare that comes with a pump it makes applying it so fuss free.

Rose Otto Skincare from balanceMe

Rose Otto Body Cream 280ml

I adore this body cream, it feels so luxurious on the skin and very hydrating. The scent isn’t overwhelming, it’s quite delicate so if you’re not always a fan of classic rose products don’t overlook this range. It leaves a light scent on your skin and I like that because it is a calming scent. It has Aloe Vera and Rosehip Oils which soothe and Antioxidant Arctic Cloudberry which plumps and helps skin look smooth and healthy. This body cream has the same handy pump packaging as the body wash.

Rose Otto Hand Cream 100ml

I have used quite a few balanceMe hand creams over the years and they’re so good at hydrating, smoothing and also protecting your hands. I like that the formula isn’t greasy and it has the same delicate rose scent as the bodywash & bodycream. It contains some great skin loving ingredients like, Camelia and Kukui Nut Oils help to smooth away dry patches and also Rose Otto and Palma Rosa Essential Oils which help to soothe and strengthen skin in distress. In this gift set you get a generous 100ml size which will last a good couple of months
