Red is the new black

Well at least in February it is. 

Here's another post featuring superb items that would make great presents for Valentine's Day or even for Mother's Day for that matter. 

I personally love the massive Red Vanity Case from Sanctuary Spa. It's quite sturdy and the quality is too good to be true for the price. 

That's not it, it comes with three full sized Bath & Body products that are meant to assist you in creating a spa like atmosphere in the comfort of your home, if just like me you are spa shy too.

It comes with an Enriching Body Wash, Nourishing Bath Soak and Cocooning Body Butter.

I can't really put a name to the scent these products contain but they are not floral or fruity at all. They smell quite relaxing and grown up if that makes any sense.

I was applying the Cocooning Body Butter the other day and even forced the sister to slather on a bit. She's not someone who likes Body Creams however she said it felt too luxurious to use every day and was shocked that the entire kit retails around £12!

That's dirt cheap right?

The best thing about the collection is that in real it looks much more expensive than its RRP. 

The super massive vanity case wins it full points as it can literally contain a tonne of Make-up plus its of really good quality and looks quite pretty. 

Sanctuary Spa do a variety of such cost effective yet luxurious gift sets at amazing prices. You can purchase them online or I have seen them retailing at larger Boots. 

Another brilliant product, staying in the red theme for Valentines is the Ila Body Balm. Ila Spa makes natural body care and this particular balm is for treating the senses with its relaxing aromatic experience and for feeding the skin via its naturally rich ingredients such as Argan Oil and Damascena Rose Otto.

I absolutely love Argan Oil for the hair and its the first time I am using it as a part of body care and I have to say it works just as well! The balm is quite solidified in texture and needs a lot of rubbing between fingers to warm it up however once on, its has a gorgeous warm rosey scent to it and a little goes a long way. 

It is slightly expensive at £39 for 200g of product however it would make a perfect present on its own for someone who loves their organic body care. The red and gold packaging is pretty and the clean white jar is heavy and luxurious.
