I’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!
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
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!
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!
