Elemis’ new Voyage Of Discovery Set ($89; shop.nordstrom.com) for the holidays is a luxurious skin and body care set with deluxe sizes of the brand’s bestsellers. The set includes a Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser, a makeup remover and skin cleanser in one that is so rich and creamy and very pampering on dry skin. Its one to be removed with a washcloth and leaves skin feeling super soft and brightened. There’s also a Gentle Rose Exfoliator which is gorgeously scented and mildly exfoliating and very brightening. I absolutely loved it from the very first use and would pick up a full size once I’m done. Its not very foamy or harsh for a physical exfoliator, but definitely gets the job done well. Also part of the kit is the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream which is lovely for dry or aging skin. I have it as a backup to use once I finish my current one, which I’m almost done with. Read a review of it here.
The British Botanicals Shower Cream and Body Cream are very pampering too. They’re both very aromatic, the Shower Cream is not too lathering, but cleanses without stripping and the body cream is very nourishing and also doubles up as a lovely hand cream. They’re both fragranced, but not overly so and make for a luxurious shower treat. Everything in the Voyage of Discovery Set comes packaged in a beautiful white travel pouch as well. Overall, its a really great kit to try if you haven’t tried very much from Elemis before and the sizes are pretty nice to get a feel of the products and also to travel with.
