Cocoon Collection 'Pamper Giftbag' review

29 May 2012

Recently, I was sent a 'Pamper Giftbag' from CocoonCollection.co.uk to sample and review. I'd never heard of Cocoon Collection before, and one of my favourite things about blogging is finding new companies and websites you hadn't heard of before. Cocoon Collection are in the category of websites that sell a range of products for him, her, pamper gifts, and general seasonal occasions. I've always found these websites really useful as they do some fun gifts for dads, and personalised gifts etc, and at times like Christmas, you can pretty much order presents for everyone from one website! They're a small British company and seem to have a lot of care and value for their customers. I was sent a 'Pamper Giftbag' and have been using it for the last couple of weeks.

(All photos taken before usage so you can see how they arrive in the giftbag)

To start, the packaging was fab. If I was sending this as a gift, I'd want to know that it was safely packed and looked like a 'gifty' product, and it really was. It's described as a giftbag, and that's what it is: a cute little giftbag packed to the brim with pamper products - a lovely surprise for anyone I'd say. Inside, I received a Union Jack themed candle called Cool Britannia - patchouli and Tibetan musk will waft everywhere rather quickly and what a gorgeous smell it is. I also loved how they kept in theme with the Diamond Jubilee that is everywhere at the moment. Next was a Cupcake Bath Brulee. I could smell this before I could see what it was. Think Lush products and you get this item. It's quite similar to the Lush Bubble Bars, in that you can use it up to 6 times, and it gives you a bubble bath, moisturising and fragranced experience. I actually found this lasted longer than the Bubble Bars I've used in the past, and as I've been so ill over the last few days, it's found itself in my bath a lot! If you like strong smelling items, this is for you. If you walk past Lush and it gives you a headache, give this one a miss. Next was some Revitalising Eye Gel Pads. You put these in the fridge to cool for 10 minutes, take out of the sachet and apply under the eyes. You leave on for 15 minutes and relax! After the 15 minutes, you remove the pads, wipe away any residue and and rinse your face with cold water. This was a really nice pamper gift as very rarely do I lie down and just relax for 15 minutes. My pads were a grape and ginseng fragrance which really did freshen me up! Also in the giftbag was a lipbalm from Pets Rock. I've seen these little tin lip balms around a lot and always had a chuckle at the design on the front: cute cats and dogs dressed up as royalty and rockstars..how can it not make you laugh! These tins have a sliding lid so you don't have to faff around with trying to unscrew the lid off - don't try and pretend..we've all been there with the Vaseline! You also get 2 silver wrapped praline chocolates to add to the pampering - who doesn't love chocolate? Obviously these aren't in the photo as my colleague and I swiftly had one each!

At £12.99, this is a perfect little gift for Mother's Day, a birthday, a treat for a friend or just to spoil yourself. Plus, if you wanted to change an item in the giftbag, Cocoon Collection offer the option to change the items! Even better I say and fab customer service. I'd recommend you give the website a little look around, especially as we're nearing Father's Day :)
