A Gorgeous Christmas Giftset from Roger and Gallet

With Christmas fast approaching the time has come for us to start considering what to get our nearest and dearest for Christmas. Roger & Gallet very kindly sent me one of their Christmas Giftsets, their Hand and Nail Cream Trio*, to feature and I have to admit that I am very impressed. I personally look forward to beauty related gifts at Christmas but I also give a lot of them myself (especially to my close family who all seem to have a penchant for luxurious fragrances, shower gels and body creams when Christmas rolls around) and I personally would be very happy to either give or to receive the Hand Cream Trio* as a present this Christmas.

Roger & Gallet are a French fragrance and bodycare brand and at this time of year they release numerous Christmas Gifts (all of which are packaged gorgeously) and they all look like they would make perfect Christmas presents. The set I've received, the Hand Cream Trio*, really does a lot of the talking for me - the box it came in was very aesthetically appealing whilst still being sturdy and the packaging of the hand cream s both looks and feels very luxe. 

As you can see from my pictures, the Hand Cream Trio contains three different scented hand creams; Rose, Bois d'Orange and Fleur d'Osmanthus. Rose is a straightforward scent and is the most subtle of the three. Bois d'Orange is a rich, but not heavy, scent of Jasmine and Orange grounded by a woody base. Whereas Fleur d'Osmanthus is a much lighter scent with more a zing to it (albeit a subtle one) that comes from grapefruit and mandarin. The quality of the hand creams is great - they're really hydrating - and best of all the cream feels quite light so they are quickly absorbed. I've found that they're perfect to carry in my handbag and use on the go and whenever I use them around my friends there's a lot of 'ooo-ing' and 'aah-ing' over how nice they smell.

It is definitely worth noting that individually the hand creams cost £8 so the the Hand Cream Trio Giftset* is an affordable way to try out three of Roger & Gallet's 'Collections' (which are all based around different scents). Overall, I'm really impressed by the Giftset's value for money, for £17.50 you get either one amazingly packaged gift that's full of incredibly high quality products, or you could split the hand creams up and give them to three different friends. Either way, I was impressed with my first encounter with Roger & Gallet and I've actually fallen in love with the Bois d'Orange scent and am now eyeing up the rest of the collection (you can browse it here). If you liked the sound of Roger & Gallet's Hand Cream Trio Giftset* you can find it in Marks and Spensers and online at Escentual.
