Laura Mercier & Dr. Hauschka Christmas Present Ideas


As promised I currently have a row of posts with lots of fabulous Christmas present ideas. If you like me often find yourself mulling over what you could give as presents and just don’t have any ideas these two box sets will be your perfect last minute saviour. I find that box sets are the perfect gift for someone you know likes beauty products but you’re not quite sure what really tickles their fancy. Also as box sets are usually packed gorgeously you don’t even need to wrap it up if you’re in a hurry! 🙂closed-copy

Today’s box sets are from Laura Mercier and Dr. Hauschka. In the image above you can see on the left side the beautiful new and limited edition animal print T-Time Tea Menthe Citron Collection box by Laura Mercier. On the right side is the limited edition festive Gift Set Soothing Almond by Dr. Hauschka.


The T-Time Tea Menthe Citron Collection is inspired by the Moroccan leisure of tea-time. Tea Menthe Citron captures the freshness of hand-picked mint and earthy tea leaves, perfectly balanced with a touch of cardamom and cedar wood. The set includes the Tea Menthe Citron Crème Body CleanseTea Menthe Citron Gel Body Moisture and the Tea Menthe Citron Eau de Toilette. The Tea Menthe Citron Crème Body Cleanse is a creamy milk cleanser that froths and foams into a lightweight lather as it drenches skin in moisture. Natural coconut water helps soothe and nourish skin while glycerin comforts and conditions. Tea Menthe Citron Gel Body Moisture is a modern, hybrid gel-crème that refreshes every inch of your body. Part gel, part crème, this light-as-air indulgence instantly nourishes skin with moisture. Natural coconut water and a vitamin-rich complex work in harmony to drench skin with hydration, leaving it soft as silk. Lastly Tea Menthe Citron Eau de Toilette is a contemporary, sophisticated fragrance that captures the essence of mint and tea leaves.

I absolutely adore this set because I think that the design of the box is so beautiful, the scent is refreshing and natural and what I love most about scented box sets is that you can layer the scent instead of your perfume clashing with the body lotion and the soap etc.


Dr. Hauschka’s Gift Set Soothing Almond contains the Almond Soothing Bath Essence, Almond Soothing Body Cream and the Almond Soap. The Almond Soothing Bath Essence combines the warm scent of marzipan with a floral, fruity aroma of a Mediterranean spring. The versatile fragrance seems to continuously change, sending you on a delightful journey of discovery. Experience the warm sweetness of the enveloping almond oil as it caresses your skin or the freshness of the developing fragrance that incites your desire for spring. Almond Soothing Body Cream awakens the mind and nurtures the senses; while the soft, floral scent of the almond blossom evokes thoughts of the early days of spring, the warm and sensual hints of the almond fruit whisk you away into the colourful life of the Italian Summer. Almond kernel oil blended with extracts of soothing St. John’s wort and balancing anthyllis smoothes, calms and fortifies dry, sensitive skin. Quince and marshmallow extracts balance moisture content, leaving the skin soft to the touch. The last product is the limited edition Almond Soap wich is a mildly cleansing and delicately scented soap that was exclusively created for this limited edition Christmas box set.

My favourite product in this box would definitely be the Almond Soothing Bath Essence as it smells like heaven on earth and leaves you relaxed and ready for new challenges. When you get out of the bathtub there is nothing nicer than to treat your skin with the smooth and creamy Almond Soothing Body Cream to protect your skin from the cold and dry air.

    I have not started my Christmas shopping yet as for some reason I enjoy the pressure of waiting till last minute. I always give great gifts and this is what works for me. Dr. Hauschka’s gift set sounds like something I may gift to my daughter.

      I envy people who can gift shop last minute! If I wait till last minute I just never have any good ideas… I’m sure she’d love the gift set. Be sure to check out the other Dr. Hauschka gift set as well. The one in this post is the orange one but there is also a red one. 🙂
