As Christmas is around the corner we take a look at some festive scents on the market!

Tried and tested: pine products

As we edge nearer and nearer to 25 December, more and more of our beauty products are giving us that Christmas feeling. One of the most festive scents out there is pine, conjuring up images of glorious Christmas trees jam packed with presents underneath. We see what pine products are out there right now.

Molton Brown Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine Fine Liquid Hand Wash - 5/5

Having a bottle of Molton Brown perched atop your sink is the ultimate mark of luxury, and each year the beauty company brings out a limited edition Christmas version of its hand wash. This year the Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine Fine smell is divine, and avoids having the over the top sickly sweet or overly spiced scents some Chrimbo products are known for. As well as the crisp smell, my hands also felt lovely and soft. The bottle comes complete with jingle bells, making this a real Yuletide must.

Lush Needles and Pines Shower Jelly - 4/5

Pining for the forest? This shower jelly is infused with pine needles, cypress leaf and pine nut oil, and is designed to transport your mind straight to lush Finnish woodlands. The vivid green colour of this product is certainly refreshing, as is the scent, which features the invigorating perfume of grapefruit oil. For an extra refreshing wash, take your jelly straight from the freezer to your shower and experience its cooling, energising effects.

Korres Black Pine Face Oil - 3.5/5

This oil has a surprisingly mild scent for a pine-based product and with just a few drops it doesn't take much to nourish your skin. I tried it as an overnight treatment, blotting any excess liquid off my face before I slept, and it certainly left my complexion feeling smoother and softer in the morning. It is a little greasy though and I'm not yet convinced by its promise to fight off wrinkles. But for now it makes a great way to hydrate during the colder months in London.
