Elemis Pure Rose Indulgence Gift Set Review

Elemis is a brand that oozes luxury, it's an aspirational brand, we'd all love to be surrounded by Elemis products for a spa like skincare experience. I think the Pure Rose Indulgence Gift Set* would make a lovely present for those who need a pamper or for those who dream of an indulgent evening of relaxation.

Elemis Pure Rose Indulgence Gift Set Review

The set contains the Jasmine Rose Bath Milk, Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, Gentle Rose Exfoliator and Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules.

We have to talk about the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm first, I'm happy I received this set as I'd wanted to try the balm for a long time. It's waxy in texture when you scoop some out of the pot, but as soon as you start to massage this over your face, it becomes a silky balm that feels heavenly. It's a hard working cleanser that removes all your make-up within seconds. It does leave a film of oil on the skin, but it feels like it's working wonders in hydrating and reviving your skin.

The Gentle Rose Exfoliator is a great everyday exfoliator, as the name suggests it isn't too abrasive. The formula is gel like in consistency and contains Vitamin C, which is great for renewing the skin cells, giving you a glow.

Elemis Pure Rose Indulgence Gift Set Review Products

I've never seen a product quite like the Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules, there are two sets of coloured capsules, pink and green. The pink ones are filled with their rose oil which should be applied in the morning and the green capsules contain lavender oil, which should be massaged into the skin at night. Both oils are warming on the skin, which gives a lovely spa like feel to the product. I have oily skin so I tend to alternate the two on different nights as I can't use oils in the daytime. They work quite like the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair in that they work overnight to renew the skin. I wake up and my skin looks clearer and my scars are reduced.

All I can really say about the Jasmine Rose Bath Milk is that it's so luxurious and relaxing, I've caught my mum trying to use some in her bath! That's why I think this set would be great to give mums for Christmas.

Library of Fragrance Gingerbread Spray Review

The fragrance aisles are jam packed with garish celebrity fragrances and expensive scents you can only afford once in a blue moon. Library of Fragrance are a breath of fresh air in the overcrowded market.

They've stripped back all the complicated base and top tones, which us bloggers find amazingly hard to describe without a cheat sheet and gone back to basics with scents like Daisy, Fresh Coconut and Rain. The simple names describe the scents perfectly. Their most popular lines are Baby Powder, Pure Soap and Clean Skin - it's like your favourite fresh scents from Yankee Candle being made into a scent!
I have the Gingerbread fragrance*, which is £15. Cute little side story: every time my Nan took me shopping, she used to buy me a gingerbread from Gerrards Bakery, so this fragrance brings back some memories.

Library of Fragrance describe the Gingerbread scent as 'warm and sexy', and I totally agree. This scent is much more grown up than you would have imagined. It has a warm and deep spicy scent that is juxtaposed against sweet vanilla sugar notes.

As for longevity, the scent does last well for a cologne spray, but as the bottle suggests these are a 'pick-me-up' so you can refresh the scent throughout the day.

They've now added some classic Christmas scents to the range, including Egg Nog, Cranberry, Christmas in New York, and Christmas Bouquet. Their range of scents can be layered so they'd make a great present, you could select three which compliment each other and make your own customised set.

Library of Fragrance scents are stocked on their website and at selected Boots stores/ Boots online.

Beverly Hills Formula's Perfect White Black Toothpaste Review

Charcoal is often used in skincare because of its cleansing properties but Beverly Hills Formula have taken it one step further. They’ve created a BLACK toothpaste, yes I said black, which contains charcoal, called Perfect White Black*.

Activated charcoal is said to be one of the most effective and safest teeth whitener ingredients, great for those who don’t want harsh chemicals in their beauty products. It’s a well-rounded ingredient as it also helps combat pesky plaque and gum disease.

Now you know it contains charcoal, I bet you think this toothpaste is gritty and tastes bad, well it’s the opposite! The flavour is surprisingly refreshing with a touch of mint to banish bad breath.

If you’ve ever tried a toothpaste with bicarbonate of soda, I'd describe it as a similar texture. It’s not super gritty but does have a slight texture, but this isn’t off putting and it makes you feel like you’ve given your toothy pegs a good scrub and clean.

As for whitening, I feel that this is comparable to most whitening pastes, it does have a slight whitening effect but you need continual and long term use to get those pearly whites. It really is worth investing long term into keeping your teeth white and this toothpaste is a good on to start with!

Would you try a black toothpaste?
