Mother's Day Gift Idea: Fruits and Passion 'Pompelmo' Collection

Hey Everyone, 

With Mother's Day just a couple of days away, I wanted to do a couple of 'Mother Day Gift Ideas' post for all of those last minute shoppers. 

My mom is both easy and extremely difficult to shop for. Easy because she likes the same things every year (cotton nightgowns, garden decor/tools and things that smell nice). Difficult, because it is hard to come up with new, creative ideas every year. 

Luckily, for those who are like me and have a hard time deciding what to get your Mom, Fruits and Passions has come out with a new collection of 'things that smell nice' just in time for Mother's Day. 

Adding to their already popular 'Cucina Al Fresco' Collection, Fruits and Passions have introduced a new Pompelmo (Italian for grapefruit) scent that 'takes you straight to the heart of summer [with] its accent of crisp green cucumber combined with refreshingly delightful pink lemonade'. 

I was recently sent two products from the new collection. Below is more information:

Fruits and Passion 'Pompelmo Hand Soap' ($20 CND/475ml): 
"This mild biodegradable soap cleans hands effectively and gently. Made with first cold press virgin olive oil and other plan extracts, it boasts softening and revitalizing properties."
With a refillable glass bottle (not going to lie, when I first received it, I thought it was a bottle of sparkling grapefruit juice), this soap not only smells AMAZING (if you love citrusy grapefruit scents, you will love this), it looks extremely chic sitting next to the kitchen sink. 

Fruits and Passion 'Pompelmo Regenerating Hand Cream' ($8 CND/60 ml):
"Cucina Regenerating Hand Cream combines all the remarkable properties of olives to moisturize, protect and tone dry skin. It contains three olive tree extracts that help regenerate and soften skin". With a combination of grapefruit, cucumbers and mint, the new Pompelmo hand cream smells divine, making me long for a summery, citrusy virgin cocktail (I don't drink). 

The new 'Pompelmo Collection' will be in stores until June 9th and also includes a candle, a fragrant kitchen mist, a decorative diffuser fragrance and a foaming hand soap.
