Arbonne Mandarin Pomegranate Frost Spa Gift Set

I recently won a giveaway from Beauty RSVP, in which I won Arbonne's Mandarin Pomegranate Frost Spa Gift Set ($158 CDN)! I've never tried out anything from Arbonne before, so I was really excited to get to try out four of their products. 

"A festive gift that promises sweet, peaceful relaxation. Immerse yourself in the wonder of Mandarin Pomegranate, and let the fragrance transport you to an exotic orchard blossoming with divine pomegranate and fresh citrus. Set includes Bath Salts (198 g), Bubble Bath (355 ml), Shower Gel (355 ml), and Body Lotion (163 ml)." - Arbonne



This gift comes in a beautiful red and orange box that displays the products quite nicely. You could easily gift this set as is, or pop it in a gift bag! The Mandarin Pomegranate scent is very nice, and I mostly pick up the mandarin notes. The pomegranate notes are fairly subtle, but they do round out the fragrance very nicely. I find that the scent lingers lightly on my skin for about a half hour. The Body Lotion is my favourite item from the set, it's a light texture and it sinks in very quickly. Arbonne's products are made without parabens, animal products, gluten, and synthetic dyes, just to name a few! I definitely appreciate the healthier, eco-friendly approach that the brand takes. However, I do have to comment on the price $158 CDN for four bath products seems a bit pricey to me, and the packaging of the individual products doesn't do anything to wow me. If I didn't already know how much this sold for, I would have guessed that it was around the $20-$30 range. The packaging is simply see-through plastic bottles, nothing extravagant. Of course, it's the products inside that really should matter, but I wouldn't want to spend $158 on a gift and have the recipient think that I only spent $25. 


Overall, I think that this would make a good gift for someone who is a fan of Arbonne products, but I don't know that i would pick it out for someone who hasn't heard of the brand before. There are a lot of other bath and body sets out there that have nicer packaging, and at a much better price. Have you tried out any products from Arbonne before? Would you pick up this set for yourself or as a gift? :)
