Satsuma Gift Bag
Great way to sample or travel with Satsuma
I bought this Satsuma gift bag to sample some of the Satsuma products. I smaller sizes are also convenient for travel. The shower gel smells like sweet, zesty Clementine. The scrub is tangy scented and effective. The lily is smaller than the normal TBS bath lily and good for travel. The body butter smells more like oranges and honey than Clementine, but a nice scent. I had to buy a separate travel size lotion to try that since it's not included in this gift bag. I would rather have the lotion than another bath lily. Overall, this gift bag is a good quality gift, especially when offered on a TBS sale.

Perfect Small Gift
Who doesn't love Satsuma? I usually use other Body Shop products, but once in awhile I have to a have a Satsuma fix, and this bag is perfect. I've also bought this when I needed a small gift for someone who loved citrus scents (I know several people who love their citrus). As another reviewer mentioned, the bag it comes in seems to last forever and makes a great cosmetic or travel bag. The Satsuma line, while still awesome, seems to be a little lighter in terms of moisture and is probably best suited for normal skin, so if your skin tends to be drier or you are looking for serious moisture, you might want to check out the Mango, Coconut, or Shea lines.

The Satsuma Shower Gel 2.0 fl smelled deliciously of Clemintine, I get compliments every single time anyone smells this on me. For a lavish bubble-lover like me, though, a larger bottle would've been appreciated. The Satsuma Body Polish 2.5 fl oz smells the same, and feels great when I feel like a scrub! The Satsuma Body Butter 1.7 oz smells wonderful, as well, and LOOOOONG outlasts the shower gel, for me. Each Body Butter seems to have slightly different absorption rates, varied viscosity, and diverse moisture retention throughout the day. The Satsuma is fairly quickly absorbed, one of the thinner variety, and a low but very long moisture feeling after use. The Ultra Fine Orange Bath Lily has lasted for multiple years, though it has begun to lose it's shape, somewhat, which has not in any way interfered with it's effectiveness. The Mesh bag with felt trim is tough and excellent quality. After I used all the goodies inside, I kept the bag for easy-to-see-through travel item storage. I can't count how many times I have opened and closed the thing, how many times I have cruelly and unfairly stuffed it with much more than it was meant to hold, and the zipper, stitching, trim, mesh, everything is still in new condition. I am NOT a gentle person. You'll have this bag for the rest of your life, if you wish. One comment: When I use any of the fruity, translucent soaps or fruity shower gels with the scrubby gloves and really scrub it in, later in the day, if I break a sweat, it smells like fruit, not perspiration.
