Christmas shopping can a bitch. Unless I’ve had a sudden flash of inspiration or someone has asked for something really specific, it’s always hard to find that perfect present. And since I always love people to have a few things to open, I’m a big fan of stocking fillers. I like to find a lot of a little selection of small things for everyone, so naturally my Christmas shopping can start pretty early in the year if I stumble on any gems! Beauty and grooming products are always a good bet for Christmas presents. So when Neal’s Yard got in touch to tell me about their new store opening in Eldon Square (right next to M&S), I was pretty excited to visit and browse of the range of goodies that they’d have on offer!
Since Neal’s Yard is all natural, organic products, they’re perfect for people with skin that’s a little on the sensitive side like mine. And to help promote the opening, they sent me out one of their Christmas gift sets. Priced at £14 each, they come in three varieties: Balance, Unwind and Revive, and each come with a mini shower gel and body lotion. Packaged in a cute little gift box, they’re really nicely presented and are a great little stocking filler! And right now if you spend over £50, you can get a Revive gift set free! The bottles are the perfect size to try out Neal’s Yard. Or if you’re feeling organised and can resist trying them out, they seem the perfect travel size! While I kinda had mine earmarked for someone, when I got the Balance set I couldn’t resist trying out the rose and geranium shower gel. And I think it’s pretty fair to say I can do with all the balancing I can get! I’ve not tried the lotion yet, but the shower gel is a very delicate floral scent and leaves your skin feeling lovely and nourished. It’s the perfect scent for if you’re in the need of a little pick me up.
