I can never make up my mind whether it is the giving or the receiving of gifts that gives greatest pleasure. I was recently delighted to receive a ‘just right’ gift of hand & body lotion and lip balm from the new Blend Collective enlivening range. Blend Collective is ‘An exciting new truly natural bodycare range, using unique, pure essential oil blends’.
There are three ranges in the collection; enlivening, balancing and unwinding and if the scent of these two products is anything to go by, they live up to the promise. The enlivening range scent was created for Blend Collective by perfumer Alec Lawless and makes for a perfect start to the day. I’m a sucker for citrussy scents for daytime, and this blend of lemon, may chang, myrtle and lime is gorgeous. The body lotion has a light, easily absorbed texture – essential for morning rituals – and leaves skin beautifully hydrated and lightly scented. The deliciously-scented lip balm is an effective treat, too.
