This set of cleansing products arrived last month in my Valentine’s Glossybox. I don’t tend to post ‘what’s in my box’ posts, because they don’t add any more to the GB discussion and it’d only get lost in the mix, but I wanted to acknowledge specific products that I enjoyed.
Firstly, if you’re not into multi-purpose products, you possibly won’t enjoy this set at all. The nectar can be used on the hair or body, while the balm can be used on the hair, body or face. If it wasn’t for the screw-top lid on the nectar, these would probably be quite good for travel! I must admit I was skeptical when trying these out: I already have my “go-to” shower/hair products, but both do look luxurious and as though some good beauty research went into them, so into the shower I went…
I tend to use the cleansing nectar in my hair, as the thought of something so runny on my skin terrifies me. It smells very woody and citrusey at the same time, but can often leave my hair a little weighed down, which is a problem easily solved by using less product – I’ll probably replace the lid with a travel pump soon too, because I’m super clumsy! The full size product retails at £18.50, which is a little steep, but I’m glad I now know of Davines as a brand, because their products would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift or as part of a gift for a best friend.
Next up is the moisturising balm, which was briefly a godsend when the weather took a turn for the cold and I needed a quick fix for chapped skin. While it is very moisturising, again the citrusey/woody scent is a little off-putting for such a product, it reminds me of the overpowering smell in Muji stores in London? The packaging is gorgeous, and as I sit and write this up with the balm next to me, I wonder if it’d serve well as a hand cream for your bag. It’s the type of product you’d want to be seen with for sure! Again, at £17.50 for the full size product, it’s a little expensive, but I’d be more inclined to buy this as the tube is huge!
I’ll keep you all updated with the balm-as-hand-cream trial, but for now, these remain a very rich pair of products, that I treat myself to once a week! If you received these in your Valentine’s Glossybox, what did you think of them? ♥
Thank you to Glossybox for, once again, helping to add to my favourite beauty brands bank!
