First of all I apologize for the lack of reviews and swatches. I still haven’t bought a camera. I plan on getting two cameras – one a purse friendly “simple” camera, something like Nikon S3100 or S5100 and one pro camera.
For some reason I find it so hard to choose what I want/need but I promise to get it at the end of this week/beginning of next one.
I have so many new exciting products to show you so can’t wait to get a camera. Luckily, I have some photos I’ve taken before my camera was gone.
I don’t want this post to be completely off topic so here is a review of the soap which I’ve recently purchased at L’Occitane.
Last week I reviewed the new Elemis Tranquil Touch Bath Elixir from their Exotic Body line and promised to review the other product from the Body Awaken line.
I’ve actually ordered Elemis’ new body scrub last week. Was torn apart between the mint body scrub and the exotic body scrub. Mint one would be more suitable for summer but I’ve got the Exotic one. Can’t wait till I get it.
But back to the product that I’ve got to try from the Awaken Body range. To tell the truth, I don’t think that I would get anything from that range myself as Exotic or Soothing lines attract me much more. So this is great that I have something different to tell you about.
So, I’ve got a Revitalise-Me Shower Gel 200ml( £16) to try. I assume this would be an amazing product to use in the morning to help yourself to wake up but I don’t have time and don’t like taking shower in the mornings most of the time. But I did take a shower several times in the morning to try out this shower gel!
The first thing that you notice is the pretty
Well, they kindly sent me two products from different ranges to try. One is from the Body Awaken range and the other one is from the Body Exotics range.
The product I will be talking about today is from the Body Exotics line, which I adore! So today I will tell you about the new Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir 300ml, £19
It contains “skin conditioning cocoa butter, combined with sensuous patchouli, cedarwood, and vetiver”. As all the products from the Exotics Line, it smells divine and it was love at first sniff for me. I think that [email protected] home is a great name for the range as the scent of both products that I’ve tried is very strong.
Right after I’ve got this product I had no time to take a bath but I really wanted to try it as soon as possible, so I’ve decided to use it as a shower gel. And you know what? The scent actually stayed on my skin for a while, it did not disappear as soon as I left the shower as it often happens. I personally find this amazing and I wish the scent would be with me even for a longer time.
When using the product for bath, you get a decent amount of foam and your bathroom is full of beautiful exotic aroma. Just make sure that you don’t use too much as the scent is strong and it may be even a bit overwhelming.
I would love to see Elemis doing
Since I was writing about Elemis today I though I would share my impression about their Skin Nourishing Shower Cream.
This particular Shower Cream is a part of the Soothing range and is “about slowing down the pace at the end of the day, taking time to nourish the body and de-stress the mind. Relaxation is key.” It is also said that this shower cream is made for the excessively dry skin.
And I have to say that
I like writing about the products that I really love. And today I am going to write about one of them. And I am talking about Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath.
Now I just like how it is described:
“Highly acclaimed, this Luxury Milk Bath has a unique formula that captures the essence of Cleopatra’s ancient bathing ritual. Its milk protein base is rich in nourishing vitamins, amino acids and minerals. Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath contains natural plant collagen from Oat Extract and Japanese Camellia Oil to feed the skin whilst keeping it soft and supple. Skin Nourishing Milk Bath is excellent for irritated, sensitive and excessively dry skin conditions.”
And now some of my thoughts:
I visit dermatologist quite often because I have very dry skin. I actually have to live near the sea all the time to have better skin but we will skip this part… So she recommended me to add milk and a spoon of olive oil in my bath to make the condition of my skin a bit better. I say a bit because, unfortunately, there is nothing than can be done here, I’ve had this problem all my life.
I was very happy to discover this Milk Bath by Elemis which
