6. Bayonelle Lemongrass Pamper Pack
This cute little pamper pack included bubble bath, shower Gel, body butter and body scrub. The body moisturizer and bubble bath were great and all the products had a nice scent. Great for a gift – or for staying soft and smelling great while traveling.
7. Bayonelle Skin Salad Candle
Green Apple & Tropical Coconut
There are some fragrant candles on the market which smell great, but when lit provide little room fragrance. Skin Salad Candles are wonderfully fragrant from the first time you light them to the end of their days. Presented in cute tin pots they are great for around the bath or bathroom for an indulgent bath session. Perfect also for travelling to liven up your hotel room.
8 Bloom Brown sugar & Fig Wax bead candle
This gorgeous candle has a lot of small white wax beads sitting in a glass cup. It really is lovely when you light the wick and see the light glow through each little bead. A soft subtle scent of brown sugar and fig is released that is sweet and relaxing.
9. L’Occitane Magnolia Scented Candle
We wondered if we might have found, just once, a L’Occitane product that disappoints – but yet again this one is divine. We immediately fell in love with this scented candle as it is not too strong and the Magnolia has been complimented by sandalwood and white musk, which is a rare treat. Lasts for ages too!
RRP: $34.95. (100g)

10. Lush Butterfly Ball
This little ball provides the prettiest bath experience ever. Watch the ball as it fizzes around the tub leaving in its wake a trail of little purple flowers and staining the water a soft pink hue. Lean back and breathe in the smell of roses – it’s a real feeling of bliss. And get ready to smile when just as the ball fizzes out two little shiny butterflies are released, aaaah. What more could a girl want?
