St Kitts Herbery

Lara's Christmas Wish List

Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re still sorting out your Christmas shopping, fear not, as I have a few suggestions sure to please over the festive season. From perfume to chocolate, we here at The Amazing Blog have a few ideas for everyone.

Perfume is such a thoughtful gift for friends or family, and I really love those fresh, universal scents that suit any personality. One that I’d be thrilled to see in my stocking is St Kitts Herbery’s new Bergamot Perfume. The musky scent contains base notes of patchouli and amber, as well as orange and, of course, bergamot. The beautiful fragrance actually makes a great unisex aroma, one that I’d happily gift to someone special, whether male or female. The perfume is available to buy here for £24.95.

It’s also the time of year to immerse yourself in gift sets, and Korres offer some great selections. In particular, their Wild Rose Brightening Collection is a great introduction to the brand, and a wonderful present for any budding skincare enthusiasts. Consisting of the brand’s signature Wild Rose 24H Moisturising & Brightening Cream, and the new Wild Rose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, this limited edition set smells divine, and is great for keeping your face moisturised during the colder months. The set is available to buy here for only £10, making it a fantastic stocking filler.

Of course, everyone loves tasty treats, and InSpiral have just the thing to keep your friends and family happy this Christmas. Their Goji & Purple Corn Raw Superfood Truffles are absolutely delicious, with their melt in the mouth texture being just like a decadent chocolate brownie, only with a lot more health benefits. The raw vegan treats contain cashews and are coated in wonderful coconut flakes, ideal for sharing with your loved ones, although I found it difficult not to eat the lot myself! You can buy them in packs of 4 here for £3.95. We only wish they came in a bigger size!

There's nothing better than curling up and keeping warm after a long day. And Christmas is the perfect time to sit around family and friends, sipping on a hot drink or two. The East India Company offer a wonderful selection of winter beverages, perfect for buying to share this Christmas, or for gifting to someone who loves a good cuppa. The brand offers a wide selection of Christmas drinks, including Spiced Chai Drinking Chocolate and Christmas Tea. My personal favourite was Christmas Coffee; a delicious blend of hazelnut, chocolate and cinnamon, I'd be happy to sip on this seasonal delight all year round. The Christmas Coffee is available to buy here for £12.95, as well as the rest of the brand's festive infusions.

Hopefully, you'll find something to suit all in this festive gift guide. Happy shopping, and Merry Christmas.

St Kitts Herbery - Rosemary & Bergamot

Here at The Amazing Blog we love beauty, especially when it’s home grown. So when niche beauty brand St Kitts Herbery sent us a Rosemary and Bergamot gift set to test out, we were all very curious to try them out.

Together with St Kitts Herbery's wonderful Rosemary & Bergamot range, also came their rather special Clay Face Mask.There’s something very charming about products which include a selection of local scented flowers and plants from their area and we also love the way that their Rosemary & Bergamot is home grown too. When they arrived, the scent of the products radiated through the packaging, which made us even more excited to dive in. The shower gel and shampoo used together made showering a flowery delight, and by using the body lotion in tandem too meant that we found that the fragrance lasted even longer... As for the clay face mask, most people are aware of the positive effect of clay on skin but may only ever get the chance to use it in situ if on a holiday excursion in the Red Sea. Now with St Kitts' help, the natural clay facial experience can be recreated in your very own bathroom. The mask has a lovely thick texture, which soaks into the skin and when left on for the recommended time of 10 minutes, leaves it feeling silky soft and refreshed. To think that St Kitts Herbery began life in 2001, with just £2000 and as old truck-stop style cafe in Cornwall, but has since evolved into a gorgeous beauty brand offering perfectly natural yet luxurious products is a very inspirational story indeed.  Certainly their hard work is now reflected in these products and if you’re after something 100% British, natural  and with a luxurious feel then St Kitts Herbery is a must!

The Rosemary & Bergamont Luxury Gift Set and Clay Face Mask can be purchased here for £11.95 each, along with various other delights.
