It felt like Christmas again when this Lipsy beauty gift set arrived in the post! Who doesn’t love a good gift set! I know it’s not the most season appropriate packaging but I’m a fan of black and gold, so I quite like the design of this! The Lipsy Body Collection Gift Set is £15.00 and it come with a shiny black PVC wash bag, a body lotion, body wash and body spray – all 100ml.
The Caged fragrance has top notes of pink peppercorn, grapefruit, tuberose, gardenia and freesia. With a core of lily, patchouli, vanilla, sandalwood and the undertones of musk, amber and incense – there’s a lot of different fragrances going on, but it’s actually not all that intense. In fact, the body wash and body lotion are incredibly subtle, it’s not strong at all and the scent fades very quickly. I would prefer it to be a bit heavier on the perfume but but taking into consideration how incredibly affordable this gift set is, I didn’t expect it to match a premium perfume. The body spray is my favourite because it’s slightly stronger and lasts a bit longer on your skin, but I think the idea is to use all three at the same time (one after another) to boost the scent. So when you use the body wash in the shower, apply the body lotion when you come out and then spray the body mist on to your skin before putting your clothes on.
In my opinion, Caged is a fairly typical standard “high street beauty” fragrance, it’s inoffensive to the nose and most people will love it. It’s really pleasant and it would suit women of all ages. It’s floral yet fruity, sweet but not sickly. The scent matches the Lipsy brand very well, it’s glam and sexy! The price is the best thing about it, I actually thought it might cost more than £15! It makes a nice present because you get a lot for the price you pay, and as it looks more expensive than what it actually cost!
