We’re all scrambling around to look for that perfect gift this Christmas. A lot of the time our go to places have similar presents in their range year on year. I’ve certainly struggled to find presents this year. Believe it or not, I have barely even started my Christmas shopping this year.
I love trying out new brands that aren’t your typical gift sets that you can get in John Lewis or Boots – for example. When Apple & Bears contacted me to try out one of their luxury gift sets, along with a chance to for one of my readers to win a luxury gift set, I was excited to try out a new brand.
Apple & Bears focus on natural and organic beauty products, which is growing to be ever popular nowadays. Most of us are looking for products that are kind to our skin, with more of us becoming conscious about the products that we are using.
I love how Apple & Bears are also a family owned British company, and there is a real focus of using the finest ingredients to create a luxury product – which is just what you want for someone special at Christmas. The company really uphold an ethical ethos, and the packing of their beauty products are made to ensure that they are ethically and socially responsible.
I tried out the a body wash and body silk from their honey & hemp collection, which was beautifully presented in a hand packaged, branded box. This makes it much easier to use their gift sets as presents – you don’t need to worry about ensuring the gift sets are wrapped. The packaging gives off a luxurious feel as it’s simple, clean and modern.
The Honey & Hemp gift set* contains a 300ml body wash, and 250ml body silk. The body wash can also used for your hair, and massaged deep into your scalp to really give you a taste of luxury. Once lathered, it smells beyond amazing – the honey really does come through in the smell.
The body silk is used to compliment the body wash, and help rejuvenate your skin. It comes with a handy pump to help give you just the right amount of product to rub into your skin.
One main thing you will notice on the bottles of the beauty products is the recognisable pink ribbon. Apple & Bears give 5% of their sales proceeds to Breast Cancer Care – who they are partners of. Which is great because not only are you buying a beautiful gift for family, or friends, but you are also giving to charity at the same time.
