I love trying out new beauty products and adore scents in my home all year round. When TOCCA wanted to work with me, I was over the moon. TOCCA means ‘touch’ in Italian and it launched in 1994 as a clothing line, it was best known for its bold colours and unique dresses. Later on, in 1997, they then introduced a new range of beauty products for the average beachgoer, including creams, perfumes and even laundry delicate. These indulgences were immediate favourites and laid the foundation of TOCCA Beauty.
The company has beautiful vintage boxes and designs but live in a very modern world. Their label is now worldwide and they’re based in New York. I was so excited knowing I was receiving something from America and I was overjoyed when I opened the box to see what awaited me.
The first item I came to when I opened the box was this gorgeous candle gift set, called ‘Candele de Viaggio Luxe’. A gold decorated gift box with detailed floral print which has the ultimate dainty look. The gift set includes three candles contained in petite scalloped glasses, they’re so elegant and look fantastic if you find a special place for them to live. The scents of these candles are gracefully named. Cleopatra (Grapefruit&Cucumber), Stella (Blood Orange) and Giulietta (Pink Tulip&Green Apple). I love how TOCCA has given their scents various names, I find that it makes them stand out from other Beauty brands that little bit more. These candles are more luxurious than your average flambeau, they’re far more classy and are richly fragranced. They burn for around 20 hours which is impressive considering they’re travel sized. Want them? Who wouldn’t? Find them here.
The last three items I recieved were TOCCA’s Crema da Mano, which has a fresh new look. The updated design comes in adorable vintage tubes, home to their top selling rich hand cream. Enriched with coconut oil, shea butter and aloe, these moisturising, quick aborbing hand creams will leave your skin feeling silky smooth without the greasy texture (which we all hate). I got Cleopatra and Stella, which of course match two of the candles I got. However, I got another called Colette.
Cleopatra is beautiful for anyone out there who loves sweet scents. The refreshing cucumber and luscious grapfruit leaves a clean scent and almost reminds me of fresh laundry. Stella is Italian blood orange and is a very strong scent, usually, I don’t like orange but the fruity fragrance is just enough and makes you want to keep smelling your hands over and over again, I honestly can’t stop using it! Colette is vanilla and sandalwood and is more of a neutral smell, it’s very light and gentle and is my favourite.
With these hand creams, you only need a tiny amount which is ideal as they’ll last a lot longer. I am a sufferer of dry hands and cold weather is a massive trigger. I use this every night before bed and in the morning and my hands have been better since day one.
If you need a gift or want to pamper yourself, then keep TOCCA in mind. After all, we’re allowed to treat ourselves once in a while and this is the best indulgence you can get.
