Woah woah woaaaaaaah! *does the Chandler dance*. Do you ever just end up 'treating' yourself a little too much whilst Christmas shopping for other people? Well, that happened to me this year - big time. I won't go too into it, because I'm still trying to deny to myself how much I spent but hey, when I see a good bargain that I think you guys will love, who am I to keep you from it?! The Origins 'Like a Dream' Christmas gift set (link) was at the top of my Christmas wish list this year, but when I saw it on sale in Debenhams (10% off here) I just thought, you know what? I need a moisturiser anyway, I may as well pick it up. In the end, I'm so happy that I did because I was so chuffed with the set that I ended up picking up a second! (oops?!).
Firstly, I thought it worth mentioning that the quality of the little cosmetic bag and the eye-mask included are far superior to other 'added perks' to any other gift sets that I've seen. Even though the skincare products inside are absolutely wonderful by themselves - I feel that the high quality of the added two really add to the luxury feel of this set. At the end of the day, whether you're buying for yourself or for someone else, you wan't that 'special' feeling to occur when it's opened. I'm not usually one to appreciate the added elements in a gift set, but I really love what's included in this set and it does make this gift feel more unique and 'special' in comparison to others I've seen.
Right... onto the actual skincare included Hannah! Firstly, you'll receive a full sized 'High Potency Night-A-Mins' renewal cream, which, if you've read my review here (< link), you will know that I seriously adore this moisturiser. I have never come across another night cream that is as soothing, plumping and hydrating as this one (as of yet anyhoo!). This alone is usually £35 - the set is currently on sale at Debenhams for £36 (< link)- uummmmm...yes please?! If you're looking for a new night time moisturiser, I'd definitely that you check this gift set out - even if it is just for the moisturiser. Although, I can't see that happening becausssse...
As well as my holy grail night-time moisturiser, you get a pretty decent 50ml sized sample of the hugely raved about Origins 'Drink Up Intensive Mask' (£10.35 value), and a 100ml tube of the gorgeous smelling 'Precipitation' body moisturiser (£10.40 value). I've never tried either of these products before, but both smell and look so lovely, so I'm extremely excited to give them a whirl!
All in all, not only is the quality of the bonuses to this Christmas gift set just beautiful, but the overall quality for money is absolutely incredible - saving you money, yet ensuring that either you, or whoever you're buying for is utterly treated and spoiled when they receieve this fabulous Christmas set. I have to say, this is definitely the best gift set I've seen this year. You get three really iconic Origins products in there, so I really do feel that any beauty lover, Origins fan, or someone who generally needs to take some 'me time' out would be delighted with this set. I'm actually shocked it's still in stock it's such good value for money - so make sure to grab it while you can!
