Valentina Coffret
I am absolutely in love with the Valentina de Valentino Eau de Parfum and so I think this beautiful gift set would make a stunning Christmas present.
It’s so pretty that I literally can’t imagine anyone that wouldn’t be thrilled to open this up on Christmas day. It’s also really good value as it contains the 50ml EDP together with a 100ml Body Lotion for £52. 
I am terrible at describing perfumes but I know what I like… and I really like Valentina! It starts off quite sweet but then settles into a gorgeously seductive soft woodier scent. Oooh that’s not bad for me!!
These are the notes… Top – Calabrian bergamot, white truffles from Alba, Middle – Amalfi orange blossoms, sweet jasmine, tuberose and wild strawberries, Bottom – cedar, vanilla and amber

And check out the beautiful bottle close up!

It also helps that uber model Freja Beha Erichsen is the face of Valentina – but then it doesn’t take much to get me excited!!!

It’s gorgeous. The Valentina Coffret is available at counters nationwide starting at £52.

The ReallyRee Christmas Gift Guide: The Sanctuary’s Brightening Facial in a Box

I love the idea of this Brightening Facial in a Box from Boots. For £16, you can replicate a Sanctuary Spa facial in the comfort of your own home. The super stylish box contains everything you need to get that salon glow. Excellent! If you haven’t got the time or the budget to go for a treatment, here it is all wrapped up in one box for you, or whoever you buy it for.

The pull-out instructions make it really simple to follow and we are provided with a fabulous step by step guide to getting a salon standard treatment out of the box.

You start off with a lovely cleanse using a muslin and the Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser. This first stage really kicks off the treatment in salon style. Follow the instructions and you will feel like our own personal therapist.

It’s a fab cleanser, and used with the muslin your skin will be glowing already.

Exfoliation is next. The Radiance Exfoliator smells gorgeous and again gives you that salon treatment feel. It feels very nourishing and the larger than average grains give a thorough yet gentle slough of all those dead skin cells. My skin was left very pink! But in a good way!!

The mask was gorgeous. I slathered it on and plonked myself in the bath for fifteen minutes while it got to work. I would say that’s a top tip if you are trying to get the kind of relaxation you would expect from a salon treatment.

You use the muslin again to wipe away the mask when you’re ready. My skin was really glowing at this stage.

The eye gel is really refreshing, especially if you stick it in the fridge for a bit. It leaves the eye area looking hydrated and softens fine lines.

The moisturiser is very comfortable and sinks into the skin nicely leaving it gorgeously glowy.
I love a little pamper session and I loved this home facial. The products are luxurious and effective and my skin definitely looked radiant at the end. And it was really fun.
I loved the salon style application tips, for example the techniques with the muslin and using the eye gel and the moisturiser. There are tricks that you can use in your everyday beauty routine.
Another great thing is that there is enough product to get a few treatments out of it. With the exception of the mask, and really only because it’s in a sachet, you can probably get quite a lot of use out of this kit. Especially if you are a  bit tight with products like me!
It’s a big thumbs up and a fab present I think. The bonus is that it’s part of a 3 for 2 range in Boots so you can pick up a bargain too!
How’s the Christmas planning going?
Can’t wait to hear from you

    I also love a pamper session at home – the kit is a great idea – I’ve bought Sanctuary products for friends before and they have loved them…
