Friday Favorites from Le Couvent des Minimes

Purchased by Me Affiliate Link

Friday Favorites from Le Couvent des MinimesI’m excited to share this week’s Friday Favorites with you, because it is a brand I recently discovered through the wonderful world that is a Gift With Purchase!  I have long been a fan of beauty.com – their rewards system and their Gifts With Purchase have always treated me right!

Some of my favorites from my last beauty.com GWP

Above are just a few of the samples I received in that GWP.  I have already used up the first three – L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, Le Couvent Des Minimes Gardener's Hand Healer, and Bliss grapefruit + aloe body butter

I loved all three, but felt compelled to order more of the Gardener’s Hand Healer – I found both the smell and the feel irresistible!  Check out all of the fabulous ingredients:
  • Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii): healing* and protective
  • Mimosa (Mimosa tenuiflora): restores moisture** to the skin
  • Verbena (Verbena officinalis): revitalizing
  • Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis): soothing
  • Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis): calming
  • Calendula (Calendula officinalis): softening
  • Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): softening
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis): antioxidant, protective
Le Couvent des Minimes Energizing Christmas Trio

I went back on beauty.com and ended up ordering this awesome (leftover) holiday gift set that I found in the clearance section for a steal!  It was originally $38.50 and I picked it up for $19.50.  Considering the regular price of just the lotion is $22.00, I figured it was a great way to not only get more of the Gardener’s Hand Healer, but also to try out the Verbena & Lemon Energizing Shower Gel and Verbena & Lemon Revitalizing Body Lotion.

I have always loved anything verbena and lemon scented, and these two products from Le Couvent des Minimes are no exception – not to mention the packaging is beautiful!

Labor Day ULTA haul

On Labor Day I found some awesome deals at ULTA (that Essence polish was $0.01!) including more of the Verbena & Lemon Body Lotion, as well as a mini set which included Gardener's Hand Healer, Hiker's Foot Healer and the Eau Des Minimes Botanical Fragrance.  I have only been using the last two items for this past week, but I am already loving them!
