Do you know that Xmas is less than 6 weeks away? Have you started thinking about presents yet? I have to admit that I have, well actually, the majority of mine are already done and dusted, as I either purchased them prior to, or during my recent trip to Europe and left them there, so that’s that side of the family done. So just have to get something sorted for my darling husband (and I seriously never know what to get for him), and of course something for our precious little boy. And somehow I think he will be a little extra spoilt this year. It is only his second Xmas, and last Xmas eve (being European we celebrate Xmas on Xmas eve), we ended up spending the night with him at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, so it wasn’t much of a first Xmas for him!

Anyway, with time ticking away, I thought that I’d start to share some Xmas Gift Ideas that I’d personally would be ecstatic about receiving. 

First off the rank is this beautiful Urban Rituelle Mandarin, Basil & Lime Equilibrium Gift Set.

This Urban Rituelle gift set contains two huge 500ml bottles, one with Hand & Body Wash and the second one with Hand & Body Lotion.

As the name suggests, the products are loaded with mandarin, basil and lime essential oils, as well as cucumber extract has been added to calm and revitalise the skin, and chamomile extract to soothe the shin, while the argan oil helps to deeply nourish the skin restoring the moisture balance. Finally, the products also include macadamia oil that heals and softens the skin, and rosehip oil that is rich in vitamins E and A to help the skins natural renewal process. And very importantly, the products do not contain any artificial colours, fragrances as well as they are free from sulphates and parabens. And of course the products are Australian owned and made, and not tested on animals either. Doesn’t get much better than this.

And let me tell you, these products smell absolutely divine, a scent that is both fruity due to the mandarin and lime, yet also slightly spicy because of the basil – so the products are not too girly, but perfect for the whole family. And personally I absolutely adore this scent. My favourite scent has always been zesty citrus, but these products have such a lovely twist, whilst still letting the mandarin and lime shine through. True Love!!

The soap cleanses the hands and body gently with a soft foam, and all without drying the skin out. And afterwards the skin is left with the most gorgeous scent that lingers for quite a while, and if you use it in the shower as a shower gel, your whole bathroom smells heavenly too.

If you follow with the Hand & Body Lotion, you not only get super soft skin from the light lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving it feeling greasy or tacky, but the beautiful scent also intensifies the scent so it stays on the skin even longer.

The products come in beautiful very dark brown pump bottles with understated, yet very elegant black labels with bronze and cream writing – they will simply look spectacular in any bathroom. 

RRP: $55 – Available from Urban Rituelle
