As I absolutely adore using beautiful toiletries I am always delighted to learn of new products. I am ashamed to say that there are several large carrier bags stored at the rear of my wardrobe; all of which are brimming with a variety of beauty products. Whilst I made a vow quite some time ago not to purchase anything new until my existing supply has been used I often become a little weak and purchase new items. If I were to say the words “Champneys” and “opulence” to you, what images and thoughts would appear in your mind? For me it would be luxury, splendour, relaxation and high quality and a gift that was presented to me several months ago offered me just that. The last few months have been somewhat difficult for me due to various issues and as a consequence, I have been feeling quite low at times. My husband felt I needed cheering up so handed me a beautiful box of Champneys products and this review discusses my experience with using their Spa Indulgence Oriental Opulence Travel Collection.
A LITTLE ABOUT CHAMPNEYS
Whilst I had previously heard the name Champneys I never really new anything about them and although I’d often seen their products in Boots I would simply walk straight past them due to their rather high price tag. To educate myself a little on the company itself I carried out a little research on the internet and it was there that I learned that the company are committed to providing their customers with relaxation and pampering experiences, as they own four luxury spas, which are situated in various locations throughout the United Kingdom. Their website is a joy to read, as it is clearly laid out and I found myself drooling at the services that the company are able to offer. My initial thoughts were that Champneys are the next level up from Sanctuary, which is a company that offers similar products and services. Whilst I have no experience with Champneys spa experience, I have considerable knowledge of a number of their products; all of which can be found on their easy to navigate website. I do not intend copying information from their website, as I deem this as inappropriate, but would advise that if you are interested that you check them out and I’m sure that like me, you will find yourself in a dream pamper world.
APPEARANCE OF THE PRODUCT
I was advised to close both of my eyes and hold out my hands whilst my husband placed a box into them. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I witnessed my special gift, as the packaging itself was very luxurious. The collection is contained within a glossy coloured red shaped sturdy cardboard drum and to add to the splendour and sophistication there are swirls of roses etched onto the lid; the sides of which cover almost half of the drum itself. There is a beautiful golden border running around the rim of the lid where we will find the familiar logo of Champneys. It took some time for me to take in the beautiful packaging before I made any attempt to open the lid, particularly as I have never received such an expensive looking toiletries set before.
