Find Me a Christmas Gift - Melvita 'La Petite Ruche Gift Set'

Here we have yet another adorable gift for you skin care fans out there and it's one by an organic brand called Melvita.

I had no idea that they originated from 1983 and have boutiques in Covent Garden and Putney. So if you're anywhere near these areas, definitely have a sneak peek as to what they have to offer for Christmas. 

I have here a La Petite Ruche Gift Set that contains a Body Milk, a Hand Cream and a Lip Balm. Although they look tiny, the tubes are jam packed with product and come in reasonable 30ml tubes. 

One of the main ingredients in the product is of course organic honey as Melvita itself means 'honey and life' in Latin. 

I love how cutely the products come housed in a little cottage like packaging. I wouldn't really feel the need to gift wrap this as its quite cute and authentic on its own. 

All the products are rich when it comes to hydrating the skin but still feel very light and airy to use, absorbing into the skin really well.

The Body Milk and the Hand Cream are simply fab and smell great too. I like how the Lip Balm has a traditional design to it and feels quite nice on the lips on application. It is slightly on the drier side however and needs to be worked into the lips, after which it sinks in well and recovers chapped lips overnight. 

Due to the products sizes, I like to keep them in my hand bag as they are not heavy at all and quite compact to avoid any clutter. 

The best thing about the brand is its modest prices in my opinion! It's simply amazing how this set is only available to purchase for £13.50 which is nothing compared to the atrocious prices drugstore brands are charging these days for gift sets, let alone departmental stores.

Have a browse through the website yourself and see if you can find a present to suit your pocket.
