Lately I’ve been overly obsessed with shower gels, body lotions and all that good stuff. I just can’t get enough and my box of these types of things is seriously over flowing at moment to the point I’ve put myself on a no buy until at least half of it has gone.
One brand that I’ve been reaching for more and more is Champneys. If you haven’t heard of Champneys before it is a Spa and there are a few of them around the UK. They also sell products which I didn’t even know about until my boyfriends mum kindly bought me this lovely set at Christmas!
Because I’ve been enjoying them so much I really wanted to do a review on the items I received considering I didn’t even know about them so it’s possible a lot of you don’t either! Which is a shame because they’re amazing.
In a beautiful pale yellow tin (which I now keep makeup brushes in) I got the shower cream, daily body scrub, body lotion and body butter. I also got a shower lily too which is a lovely thick one.
As you can see, the yellow packaging is beautiful and vibrant. I love the lettering on there too. These products look like such high quality items and would look gorgeous on your shelf.
The scent is called ‘citrus blush’ and includes notes of lemon, orange and cardamon. For me this is super refreshing and leaves me feeling squeaky clean – a feeling I cannot get enough of. The smell is not very citrusy, probably due to the cardamon, it is subtle yet honestly gorgeous and unique.
Although this is called a shower cream, I think it is actually more of a gel consistency. The gel has a lovely shimmery sheen to it which doesn’t seem to effect the skin after use but I still really like this about it. It lathers up really well and a little goes a long way.
I personally use this scrub as an ‘in the shower’ scrub. To be honest I like to use most of my scrubs in the shower. When you squeeze it out of the tube you would be forgiven for thinking it is a lotion rather than a scrub. However when you massage this into the skin you can feel very tiny particles scrubbing away! For me, this is a gentle scrub which I like to use in alternation with a harsher one.
Once you have used this lotion your skin feels super soft and somehow looks brighter and radiant. It feels like such a luxury. It soaks in very quickly which is one of the main things I look for in a lotion. I like to use this on all of my skin other than my legs which I choose to use the body butter on.
This body butter is one of my absolute favourites ever because it is not too thick like some body butters, yet it is thicker than the lotion. Again, as with the lotion, my skin feels glorious after using this. The smell gets me every time!
A Champneys set would make the perfect gift for upcoming Mother’s day.
I really hope you enjoyed this post. Please let me know if you enjoy my posts and reviews on these shower goodies, lotions etc!
