A Taste Of Luxury.

This boxed set allows you to try two of their fragrances before you decide to purchase a full line. I am going to give one as a gift to my best friend for her birthday. I like the portability of the products in their box, love the candle and the pouf is a wonderful finishing touch. This is a beautiful set, packaged with panache and is another quality product from Principessa.

Use

The Belezza box is a perfect accompaniment for traveling, the tubes and box are a very convenient size for your luggage. It is a very beautiful and useful gift for a woman in your life, spoil her with a taste of luxury for her birthday, Mother's Day, Valentines Day, bridal shower, bacheleorette party, graduation, baby shower or any other special occasion in her life. For people like me who prefer to try a sample prior to buying a full size item of an unfamiliar product, this boxed set is absolutely perfect.

The box can be used to store makeup, hair accessories, Barbie clothes, nail products, small office supplies and much more. It is a small box, but very decorative. You could use it as a purse or catch all for your work desk as well.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

-Shower Pouf: The pouf is very soft and full. It feels great on your skin and doesn't scratch it like some of the very cheap ones you find at a dollar store.

-Terme Tresses Shampoo, (2oz tube): Terme Tresses Shampoo is a clear liquid with white shimmers that is about the same consistency of liquid dish detergent. The shampoo pours easily out of the flip top cap, stays on your hands until you get it onto your hair. It has a slick, smooth feel on your fingers and lathers up to a full, rich and thick white lather. A small amount goes a long way!

-Terme Tresses Conditioner, (2oz tube): Terme Tresses Conditioner is a very thick, opaque white cream that is extremely difficult to squeeze out of the flip cap. It has the consistency of toothpaste and stays in place until rubbed into their hair. The conditioner feels like a thick hand lotion that does not absorb into your skin. I had to use twice the amount of conditioner than the shampoo. I also have waist length hair, too. I am going to have to have a wooden spatula (popsicle stick) to remove the conditioner out of the bottle.

-Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash, (2oz tube): The Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash is a light, delicate, shimmery, pearl pink. It pours easily out of the container and does run a bit if you let it sit on your skin, bath pouf or washcloth. The bath wash is fairly thin, about the consistency of KY lubricant. The body wash does lather up to a rich, foamy lather with little effort on a pouf, a bit of rubbing with a washcloth and a lot of rubbing with your hands.

-Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion, (2 oz tube): The body lotion is a white, silky and creamy whipped lotion. It is easily squeezed out of the tube and does not run, it stays where you apply it. There is a very silky, creamy feel to this lotion and it does absorb into your skin pretty rapidly. There is a slight oily feeling for about 2-3 minutes until the oils are absorbed.

-Cattiva Diva Silky Hand Cream, (.85oz tube): This is a great hand cream! I love the fast absorbtion, non-greasy feeling and softness of my hands after I use the Cattiva. The lotion is white and thick, smells pretty good and stays in place until you rub it in. It feels creamy and slick while you rub it in and feels silky for about 2 minutes after rubbing, when it absorbs it just leaves your hands feeling super soft.

-Candelina Soy Travel Candle, (2oz tin): The candle is a soft, firm wax and turns to an oil around the wick area when it is burning.
    • Creamy
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

Isolina Scented Products:
-Terme Tresses Shampoo-Terme Tresses Conditioner-Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash: My first whiff reminded me of my grandmother's dried lavender sachets she kept in her dresser drawers. A hint of home dried roses and an idea of Victorian dried flowers, (or the faint dried flower aroma on antique handkerchiefs,) with a very faint hint of powder and an even milder, more distant, fainter hint of a mild potpourri. All together now: Victorian dried lavender & rose sachet with a very faint, light powder & potpourri after smell.

Isolina or little Island is an exquisitely sheer, subtle, sexy and delicately sophisticated scent with a touch of whimsy. Top notes include violet leaves & mimosa (orange flower) blended with middle notes of rose petals & neroli. Heliotrope & precious woods round out this ultra feminine elixir that is best described as pureness in a bottle. Its an alluring blend of feminine, fresh, floral notes with hints of a powdery finish.

Bellocia Scented Products:
-Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion-Cattiva Diva Silky Hand Cream-Candelina Soy Travel Candle: My first whiff was reminiscent of a slight nutmeg, gingerbread and strong floral with a powdery finish. Not baby powder, but those floral powders with puff applicators that come in a decorative container. (Can you still buy those?) It really smells like, to me, the highly scented floral powder with a hint of the smell of baking gingerbread.

If pink had a scent this would be it! Belloccia means irresistible in Italian and this seductively sweet concoction does not disappoint. Its both extremely luxurious and intoxicatingly delicious, opening with ethereal nuances of peach and vanilla flower, cascades into middle notes of night blooming jasmine and ylang ylang and bottom notes of sandalwood and warm amber dry down to a warm, sensual finish.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell

Performance

-Shower Pouf: The Pouf works great for scrubbing the dead shin cells and other contaminants off your skin. It promotes lather with any soap you use and leaves you feeling very clean. The material is pretty soft and will not scratch your skin up like some of the cheaper dollar store varieties. I love how plush, soft and full Principessa made this Pouf, very luxurious! Your soap clings to the netting very well and is easy to rinse out of the pouf.

-Terme Tresses Shampoo: The shampoo was wonderful! I used about a quarter sized dollop for my long hair and it lathered right up into a thick, white, fragrant lather that did not drip down into my eyes. My hair felt smooth and clean after rinsing.

-Terme Tresses Conditioner: I had to use a golf ball-sized dollop due to the length and fineness. The conditioner is severely difficult to squeeze out of the bottle. I rubbed it into my hair and let it absorb for about 5 minutes, the maximum time period recommended. I knew if I was going to have any dull residue from the product that would do it! My hair was soft, shiny, manageable and had no build up from the conditioner, whatsoever.

-Fresh Fiore Creamy Body Wash: The natural oils and plant extracts that compose the majority of the ingredients nourish and cleanse your skin, leaving it soft and healthy feeling. The body wash is chock full of essential plant extracts, plant oils and antioxidants for cell repair. These plant components are all organic, and the wash does moisturize my skin pretty well. This wash removes immediately upon rinsing your skin with water. My skin feels light, fresh and very clean. There is no left over oily or greasy residue.

-Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion: Your skin will feel and look very sumptuous, pampered and wonderfully silky, and will have a healthy glow after using this body lotion. It is very light and glides over your skin, leaving it feeling velvety soft, sensuously moisturized and healthy without leaving a greasy film. It absorbs very rapidly and is infused with organic plant components. These moisturizing agents are meadowfoam seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera & vitamin E.

-Cattiva Diva Silky Hand Cream: This hand cream is light, non-greasy and ultra moisturizing. The organic plant extracts that contribute to its amazing moisturizing properties are sweet almond oil, aloe vera and vitamin E. The cream absorbs into your skin very rapidly and leaves your hands feeling soft, supple and years younger. Beware, a very small amount goes a long way!

-Candelina Soy Travel Candle: The very fragrant and aromatic travel candle will lend its aroma to whatever room you are using it in, but be aware, the aroma can get very strong pretty quickly. This is a wonderful and long lasting room freshener. The scent will linger in the air for a couple of hours after the candle has been put out. It has an amazing ability to mask other odors in the room.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting
    • Performance

Packaging

The Belleza Box Set is about 7 1/4" long, 5" across and 2 5/8" deep. It is actually a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but is very pretty and works very well for storing the tubes of products, traveling or storage after the products are used. This would be a perfect gift for a woman in your life. It is fastened with a metal, lunchbox style fastener on the end.

It is made of heavy duty pink cardboard. The box is recycleable, like most of their product containers. This company is wonderful about using organic plant components, making their containers recycleable and having a very consistent and pretty look.

The tubes are soft, pink plastic with a white screened label and screened instructions on the back.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly
    • Would make a nice gift

Follow-up commentary
I love this set! I ended up making a gift basket for my mother in law for Valentines, but since I tried the sample sized items, I can order the full sized products for myself. I was selfish, I kept the pouf, candle and box for myself. I used the pouf and candle, so that was a no brainer, but the box was too pretty!!and usefull!!

This is a perfect sampler, try the other items in this product line, the aromas and then make up your mind which scent line you want to go with..or both!
