French Connection Mini Pamper Set

French Connection are one of those brands that look so sleek and the majority of their products are very good quality.I received this as a birthday present from my sister as I almost always pick one up once the sales kick in after Christmas. I also received the bath set which included a bubble bath, body butter and candle but I couldn't wait to photograph them and used them! Only the large sized body butter is pictured from the bath set.

The body butter
This comes in a 50ml pot in this set and contains shea butter and sweet almond oil. It smells AMAZING! The scent also stays on your skin for quite a while and I could still smell notes of it the following morning after using it the night before. It left my skin feeling soft and well moisturised. It took a while to soak into my skin fully but I suppose that is what you get with a body butter. Although it is perfect for this time of year! I much prefer something lighter on my skin in the Summer months.

The Body Polish
Again this comes in a 50ml pot which is enough to get into those really dry areas such as elbows, knees and upper arms. You need just a small amount to get it working and you can feel the affects pretty much straight away. After using a little blob of this for the last three days I've noticed a difference on my upper arms (unfortunately I suffer with bumpy and dry upper arms) it's something that I will be continuing to use in the future. Once I get my hands on a big tube that is!

The Body Wash
The wash comes in a 75ml bottle and you need the smallest blob on your body polisher to get it to lather up really nicely. Again it has that strong woody scent which stays with you. By far the scent of this set, this year is my favourite. It leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturised which makes a nice change for fragranced products as I usually find them quite drying to the skin.

The Body Spray
The spray also comes in a 75ml bottle which is handy for popping into your bag for a quick freshen up during the day. It's so refreshing and my favourite little product out of the pamper set.

Let me know if this is something you received as a gift recently as I'd love to hear what you thought!
