Heathcote & Ivory Miniature Birdcage

Heathcote & Ivory Vintage Collection Mimosa & Pomegranate Miniature Birdcage With Bath & Body Essentials
Now that we're entering Christmas territory, the beauty world is all about the gift sets.  I've received many bath and body sets over the years but nothing quite as special as the Heathcote & Ivory Miniature Birdcage*.  A beautiful set of your bath and body essentials in quirky, functional packaging.  Shabby chic lovers, this one's for you.

Now the Miniature Birdcage comes in two fragrances: Mimosa & Pomegranate or Rose.  For this occasion I felt that Rose might appeal to more of a mature audience so this time I'll be talking about the Mimosa & Pomegranate scent.  Plus it sounds much more interesting!

The set features: a bath & shower gel, moisture rich body cream and a moisturising hand & nail cream along with a lovely shower puff to complete the set.  I do find it quite hard to describe this scent but the best way to describe it would be a younger floral.

The bath & shower gel lathers up nicely when used with the shower puff, especially well considering it contains no sulfates.  I find it really gentle on the skin and the scent lingers after you shower, but not in an overpowering manner.  The moisture rich body cream adds an extra element of softness with shea butter and Vitamin E while boosting the Mimosa & Pomegranate fragrance further.  Last but not least the hand & nail cream has a lightweight formula which sinks into the hands really well, perfect for your handbag.

I often find with sets like these the product looks nice on the outside but usually the product on the inside doesn't compare, however the products inside are very good quality and it's a good way to try them out before committing to a full size.  An element I also enjoy is that after you're done with the products inside, the birdcage makes an excellent home decor addition.  I currently have mine displayed with my other homeware items on my dresser but it does also feature a little loop and flat back should you wish to attach it to your wall, I think it would make an excellent perfume/nail polish display.

All in all, I think this is a really beautiful set that any shabby chic lover would really enjoy.  You can pick it up directly from Heathcote & Ivory for the affordable price of £13.
