We’ve long been a fan of the L’Occitane brand. The shower gels, shea butters, hand washes, skincare … you name it, we’ve tried and loved it. But ever since trying this luxurious, luscious shower gel, we’re fairly certain we’ve found the pinnacle of our obsession.
The scent of cherry blossoms — containing cherry extract from Luberon, France — is delicate yet sensuous, flirty yet feminine. It also lathers and foams incredibly well with just a dime-sized amount upon a pouf or washcloth.
And the piece de resistance? We’re in love with the simple yet beautiful bottle — and the gorgeous color of the shower gel held within.
L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel retails for $20 at usa.loccitane.com.
This paraben-free, protective lip balm is formulated with tons of good-for-the-lips ingredients that help to keep them soft and smooth. Ingredients like royal jelly, B-vitamins and pure beeswax ensure that lips stay nourished and hydrated — and, thankfully, chap-free.
We love the scent and taste of this balm, too. The spearmint and tea tree oils within make it refreshing, cooling and just a touch zesty — and they just make it feel so luxurious.
Truth be told, our lips haven’t felt this good in weeks. And we hardly ever need to reapply!
Lather Spearmint & Tea Tree Lip Protector SPF 15 retails for $6.50 at lather.com.
A blend of grapefruit, clementine and pomelo notes are invigorating, captivating and totally tantalizing. The scent fills our living room without becoming overpowering, which is tough to find in a candle. We also love the pretty pink wax held within the sleek white jar. The candle contains almost 70 percent natural soy wax, and it burns for about 90 hours! Yes, you read that right — 90! Can you believe that?
And as if that weren’t enough, the candle was conceived and created by the women of Archipelago to raise awareness and funds for research and treatment of breast cancer.
There’s just so much to love about this candle, wouldn’t you agree?
The Archipelago Botanicals Ribbons of Love Soy Candle retails for $30 at archipelago-usa.com.
