For just £40, you can snap up five products that will keep the skin on your face and body soothed, hydrated and sweetly scented.

This five-piece set is worth £75 and features some of the best skincare and perfume products from Clarins, including a full-size Blue Orchid Treatment Oil.

£40 at John Lewis

There's one full-size item - the Blue Orchid Treatment Oil and four deluxe minis, so you can sample a range of products and if you love them, you can commit to the full-sized versions.

We'd recommend adding it to your basket ASAP, as when John Lewis launched a similar set from Clarins over the Christmas period, it quickly sold out.

Why we rate it

Firstly, let's discuss value for money. The full-size Blue Orchid Treatment Oil would cost you £43 to buy on its own, but in this set you can snap it up for £40, as well as receiving a mini SOS Comfort Mask, Cleansing Micellar Water, SOS Primer and an Eau Dynamisante Spray.

What's inside the set

  • Blue Orchid Treatment Oil, 30ml

  • SOS Comfort Mask, 15ml

  • Cleansing Micellar Water, 100ml

  • SOS Primer 00, 10ml

  • Eau Dynamisante Spray 15ml

Th Eau Dynamisante Spray boasts notes of patchouli, bitter orange, rosemary, and white thyme for a refreshing, uplifting perfume. While the Cleansing Micellar Water is a speedy shortcut for removing make-up and leaving your skin soft and smooth.

The great value set is sure to sell out soon. (Clarins)

The creamy SOS Comfort Mask is designed for once a week use on dry skin types and will leave your skin feeling supple, radiant and soothed in just 10 minutes. Lastly, the SOS Primer comes in a universal shade to suit all skin tones and will perfectly prep and hydrate your skin to ensure long-lasting make-up.

What the reviews say

It's been a big hit among John Lewis shoppers, with many raving about its value for money and the reliably high-performing products inside:

  • "This collection has everything you need for a luxury facial treatment with the comfort SOS pre prep and then the Orchid Oil in particular transformed the moisture balance on my skin and it smells divine, so good I bought two sets of this package well done Clarins."

  • "I found this really good to try things I wouldn't have tried before, and it was a bargain."

  • "The set has most of my favourite products, for example, the Blue Orchid Treatment Oil and the SOS Comfort plus the SOS Primer...really I love everything. The results are amazing and so kind to your skin too."

  • "Such a great purchase, I had ran out of my glorious facial oil and this amazing gift set was on offer. I love the minis and plan on taking them on my next trip and I'm definitely going to purchase the perfume which will be great for everyday use. The box is small but all the products pack a punch!"

  • "Never disappoints. Great value and always fabulous quality. Great selection of products."

  • "Good value for money as the Blue Orchid Face Oil is around £40 and the box includes 4 other useful beauty products."

  • "A lovely goodie bag, filled with gorgeous products from Clarins, including a full size of their amazing Blue Orchid Treatment, which is so nourishing and delightfully scented. Moments of quiet and self-care are important - this wonderful collection also offers the beautiful, fresh scent of Eau Dynamisante, along with other lovely products to nourish and boost your spirits! A fabulous gift, which will bring much cheer and joy!"
