[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] It’s peak travel or discovery set time with this beautiful bright yellow bag filled with Decleor Green Mandarin brightening products. Discovery sets are such a good way to get to know a product range properly – I don’t see so much of Decleor any more which is a shame because it’s a great brand that was founded in the early ’70s with the idea of combining aromatherapy and skin care. If you can’t tolerate essential oils, it’s not for you, but if you can, it’s a delight.
Unusually, for a set like this, the bag is pretty good – it makes me think of sunshine and holidays – and I’m grateful it’s made of cotton rather than squashy plastic pretending to be leather. The point about the contents is that it has everything you need for a ritual – shut yourself away in the bathroom and take that time! Inside the bag is a Cleansing Mousse, a Scrub Mask, Mandarin Aromessence Oil, Night Balm and the Sunkissed Cream which is a bit of a revelation to me! It’s very similar to Dr Hauschka’s Translucent Bronzing Tint in that it gives you some tone warming without being ‘tanned’ as such.
Green Mandarin is for skin that’s not as glowy as you’d like it to be so it’s smoothing, softening and brightening with the little dash of sunshine at the end. There’s even a QR code in the bag that takes you through to an instructional video on how to do your own facial at home. The fragrance is fresh and citrussy – before you apply the oil make sure you do a big inhale while it’s on your finger tips or palms. I went off scrub masks, but have to admit that this one is lovely – it smells wonderful and is effective without being too harsh. Remember you are in control of how much ‘scrub’ happens.
The set has a value of £63 and costs £39.99 but I’ve found it for £29.99 HERE and at that price, I think it’s very good value. The 50ml cleanser will last a good while as will the 15ml Scrub Mask because you don’t need a lot – if you do like it for a holiday treat, it all fits within the carry-on allowance. It feels made for lazy holiday mornings and evenings where you can take your time and return home looking even more rested.
