Beauty Review: Lavender & Acacia Relaxing Foaming Bath

bathbubbles We tested out the Le Couvent des Minimes foaming bath by chance; we found it in the drug store and thought based on it's expensive price tag it had to be amazing! We were not disspointed! You only need a little bit for a full bathtub and the scent is divine! It has a strong but natural scent and it produces an incredible amount of bubbles for a full bathtub. So, even though the pricetag is around the $35 mark, it's worth it to pay for quality products that you can use for a long time. Apprarently these products come from a Convent in France en Provence, that now operates as a hotel spa, which has been certified by Relais and Chateau ( a big fancy group that tells you if your hotel is fancy enough to get into their club - it's very exclusive; only 2 hotels in Canada are in the club).

Organic Beauty Product Review
August 27, 2009 at 3:18 pm 1

In my constant search for healthier beauty products I stumbled upon some that might just be what I’m looking for! I posted earlier that I wanted to find products that are organic, and more friendly to my little body. Initially I tested out deodorants….without much success. So I turned my attention to moisturizers and cosmetics. I found a multi purpose colour stick for lips/cheeks/eyes/décolletage, called Freedom Glow Beauty Balm from Revolution Organics. It comes in a creamy and compact tube and is perfect for travels! It is long lasting and I loved the bronzed colour – perfect for my olive skin! I also tested out some of their moisturizers and I found an All Over Body Balm that is quite lovely. I really liked it for my hands and dry cuticles. I put it on before bed and when I woke up I had soft and supple hands, without the greasy feeling. So it seems my search for healthier beauty products was not in vain. Yup, now I’m looking sexy minus the guilt!
