Tucked inside this festive red and gold embossed holiday print box are three captivating Wisteria favorites that promise moments of indulgence for pretty hands and pampered skin.

Wisteria Body Lotion (50mL)
Wisteria Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy (25g)

Fragrance: Inspired by the cascading fragrant blue bloissoms of the English countryside, the captivating scent of Wisteria surround with notes of gardenia and ylang ylang blossoms, mandarin, nashi pear, and a hint of airy musk.

Starting off with the fragrance, Wisteria is a gorgeous floral scent that makes me think of springtime! It’s a very soft and feminine scent, without a heavy perfume kind of smell and lingers on my skin in a non-overwhelming way.

The bath & shower gel lathers well, leaving my skin clean and refreshed but not stripped of its natural moisture. You can also add it to running water for a luxurious bubble bath. The body lotion has a lightweight formula enriched with coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and shea butter to soothe and moisturize dry skin, without the grease factor. Use after bath or shower to lock in moisture, or anytime you desire beautifully scented and velvety soft skin.

The Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy is my favorite item in the set! The formula is rich and nourishing but doesn’t have a heavy or greasy feel and soaks in quickly too! Thanks to ceramides, conditioning shea butter and macadamia nut oil in the mix, it ensures long-lasting moisture and softness for my hands that surely need a little more love and attention when the cold weather strikes! And it’s not only the moisturizing effect that lasts through hand washing but the scent also lingers on. The size is also perfect for travelling or simply to slip in a pocket or bag for when it’s needed most.

All the products are formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, or propylene glycol

Bottom Line – Packaged in an elegantly festive box, this set with three conveniently sized Bath & Body floral treats is a great gift for those who seek a little luxury every day!
