Balea Luxury Light My Fire Gift Set

5/02/2015



I must admit that I'm not the easiest person to be impressed with gift sets - I know they're all the rave lately and most people enjoy receiving them (there's no denying in how handy they can be) but I rarely get/receive gift sets which contents I actually use up. Is it just me on this or are some of you having the same problems as well? You know, I enjoy a good packaging, eye-catching design and well coordinated and put together items into a set but if those are things I'll be piling up over and over again, not getting much use out of - that seems to be a waste to me. I'm quite a practical person and there's nothing worse than receiving something I know I'll immediately put away under a table, in a corner, in a cupboard etc. Not the most mysterious of things, sure, but I even prefer being asked what I want upfront or being handed money to get what I really want rather than 'being surprised' with completely unnecessary purchases. That's why I was really impressed with this particular gift set. It's something I'd enjoy receiving over and over again and I'd prepare it as present in situations when I'm visiting friends I haven't seen a while etc. Balea Luxury Light My Fire Gift Set is a dream for every practical soul out there because it not only looks smart - it contains products you'll actually use and use up. Score.

Prilicno sam nezgodna osoba ako mi neko namjerava kupiti poklon set u smislu da me tesko impresionirati. Iako su poklon setovi dosta popularni i mnogi ih vole, na prste jedne ruke mogu nabrojati one koji su me zaista ugodno iznenadili i ciji sam sadrzaj koristila. Ne znam da li je do mene ili mozda neka od vas ima slican problem? Naravno da cu se oduseviti lijepim, oku ugodnim pakovanjem i dizajnom te ce me sigurno dojmiti ako su proizvodi unutar poklon seta lijepo smisljeni u korisnu i smislenu cjelinu. Ipak, ako ce to biti nesto cega vec imam u velikim kolicinama i sto cu gomilati i mozda nikada iskoristiti - meni to djeluje kao gubitak novca, truda i vremena. Dosta sam prakticna osoba i za mene nema nista gore od dobitka stvari za koje automatski znam da ce zavrsiti negdje pod stolom, u cosku, u ormaru itd. Cak ce mi biti draze ako me neko unaprijed pita sta volim, zelim ili sta mi treba iako to oduzima elemenat iznenadjenja a nije mi mrsko dobiti novac kako bih sama sebi kupila sta zelim. Imajuci sve navedeno na umu, moram reci da me prijatno iznenadio poklon set koji vidite. Veoma rado bih ga dobila vise puta te bih ga licno imala u vidu kao poklon u situacijama kada npr. idem u posjetu prijateljima koje nisam vidjela dugo vremena i sl. Balea Luxury Light My Fire poklon set (cca 13KM) obradovati ce svakog prakticara medju nama jer osim sto izgleda lijepo - unutar njega su proizvodi koje cete koristiti i iskoristiti. Savrseno.



Packaging looks rather pretty with the black and pink color combo and the floral ornaments. It isn't luxurious per se but it is a step forward for a drugstore brand - you wouldn't even need to wrap it up additionally, maybe just put it in a nice decorative bag. Light My Fire gift set consists out of three items - Light My Fire shower gel (140ml), Light My Fire liquid soap (135ml) and Light My Fire hand cream (30ml). On the box I've read that the scent featured is a oriental/fruity mixture and it's of peony and jasmine fragrance. All I can tell you is that all three products smell very sweet of bubblegum. Some might like that, some might not. Surprisingly enough, I'm loving it which really has caught me off guard as I'm not the biggest fan of such sugary sweet scents. As much as I do love the packaging I'd rather paint it with tons of candy, lollipops, swirls of colorful gum goodness as these very well might be candy in bath & body form! Just take a look at the pearlescent bubblegum pink color of the shower gel and the liquid soap - it's yummy and paired with the scent it really has a theme. Neither of those two are very foamy on the skin, their thick and rich consistency just cleanses it gently, isn't drying but the scent lingers only for a half an hour on me which is a shame since I'm loving it. Odd ml of these bottles baffled me for a while but they're excellent and actually travel-friendly due to slim packaging. I'm keeping the soap on my bathroom sink but I'll get one for work as well. Too bad the shower gel isn't available in bigger bottles, though. Hand cream is made to be toted around in a purse/bag as it's small dimensions are handy and the texture is very light and suited for all of us on-the-go. It almost feels like an extremely lightweight hydrating hand balm - no sticky residue at all! This is a gift set I like and will probably make a stash at home because I love it so much.

Pakovanje je prilicno lijepo uradjeno sa kontrastnim crno/ruzicastim detaljima i cvijetnim elementima. Ne radi se o narocito luksuznom setu ali je korak naprijed kada su u pitanju drogerijski brendovi - vjerovatno vam ne bi trebalo nikakvo dodatno umotavanje u ukrasni papir vec eventualno ukrasna kesa. Light My Fire poklon set sadrzi ukupno tri proizvoda - Light My Fire gel za tusiranje (140ml), Light My Fire tecni sapun (135ml) i Light My Fire kremu za ruke (30ml). Na kutiji sam procitala da je miris ove kolekcije orijentalno/vocna mjesavina koja ima note bozura i jasmina. Sve sto vam mogu reci jeste da sva tri proizvoda nepogresivo mirisu na zvakacu gumu. Nekima ce se ovaj miris dopasti, nekima ne - meni je odlican. Iznenadila sam samu sebe jer inace nisam ljubitelj ovako secerno slatkih mirisnih nota. Iako mi se dizajn kutije i bocica svidja, nakon koristenja proizvoda vise bih sve skupa povezala sa nekom secernom tematikom slatkisa. Oslikala bih kutiju lizalima, secernom vunom i vrtlozima zvakace gume svih boja jer sve ove prozivode dozivljavam kao slatkise za njegu tijela. Bacite pogled na ruzicastu boju gela za tusiranje i sapuna - bukvalno izgledaju kao tocena zvakaca guma bisernog odsjaja. Niti jedan od ova dva proizvoda ne proizvodi bogatu pjenu. Njihova gusta, bogata formulacija njezno cisti kozu ne isusujuci je dok se miris na mojoj kozi zadrzava samo oko pola sata, sto je steta jer bih voljela da duze traje. Neobicna mililitraza me zbunjivala neko vrijeme ali uske bocice cine ove proizvode dosta prakticnim za putovanja sto je prednost. Tecni sapun drzim kod umivaonika i mislim da cu nabaviti jos jednog za posao. Steta sto gel za tusiranje nije dostupan u vecem pakovanju, njega bih zasebno kupila. Krema za ruke iz seta kao da je stvorena da stanuje u torbicama i torbama te je idealna za koristenje dok zujite gradom, idete na kafice i sl. Imam dojam kao da se radi o hidratantnom balzamu nemasne teksture - uopste ne ostavlja zastitni, ljepljivi sloj na kozi. Kao sto vidite, jako sam zadovoljna ovim poklon setom i vjerovatno cu napraviti zalihe za svaki slucaj - nek' se nadju.
