Add A Little Tropical Dream to Your Routine With Calgon!

Earlier this week I had a wonderful little package arrive at my door from Calgon, which contained a  5 piece gift set in the scent of Tropical Dream!

Valued at $15.99, the gift set included:
  • Body Mist: 8 FL OZ (236mL)
  • Body Cream: 8 OZ (226g)
  • Moisturizing Shower Gel & Foam Bath: 4 FL OZ (118mL)
  • Shower Pouf
  • Cosmetic Bag
Having not tried their products before, I had no idea what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised!

Tropical Dream is a light, fresh and breezy scent, which can be worn for any occasion and doesn't weigh you down! A little spritz of the mist is all you need for it to linger and delight. 

The body pouf is a little small, but actually I like it! It fits nicely in the hand as soup might and once you lather it up with the shower gel you can wash with ease with this cute little pouf! The gel is very foamy on the pouf and would make a delightful bubble bath but I have only used it in the shower thus far! It washes off clean and doesn't leave any kind of sticky residue! 

The body cream, which is rich in vitamins A, E and Aloe was a big test for me! I can go through a ton of body and hand creams in a year and my main hope is that they not be greasy  which  this product is definitely not! Mineral oil free, and pH balanced, it works well into the skin following a hot shower leaving behind the fragrance of Tropical Dream at its best when used with the corresponding shower gel before hand! It really did leave my skin soft and I only re-applied a little more later in the day as I felt a little dry with the hot air on in my home. If I had not had it so hot in my apartment I might not have had to re-apply at all. 

The cosmetic bag was a lovely added bonus to the pack and is a very nice size, which easily fits a couple of handfuls of regular sized cosmetics! The neutral tone makes this an accessory that can be used around the home or while on your travels and really finishes off this gift set. 

If you are interested in purchasing any of the mentioned products for yourself, you can find them at the Calgon store located HERE. There are also many other delightful sounding fragrances that I am personally itching to try such as Coconut Sorbet or Cotton Candy

If you pick any up, or have tried them before, let me know! I'd love to know your thoughts!

As soon as I read this I thought of the old commercials "Calgon take me away" I had no idea they were still in business. I'll have to pay more attention!
