New from L’OCCITANE!

A beautiful rose scent, that will have you hooked! The newest line from L’OCCITANE, Rose des Champs  is fresh, delicate,  fruity and spring-like. I can’t stop breathing it in, truly a great scent.

L’OCCITANE Rose des Champs  A rose with a slightly rebellious nature reigns over the fields of Provence, carrying an air of freedom. Like these wild and fragrant fields, the new Rose des Champs collection captures the heady sensation of freedom in a floral, pastoral and colorful scent. All of the products in this collection contain a wild rose extract from Provence and fragrance absolutes of small meadow flowers.

The collection includes; Eau de Toilette ($45), Solid Perfume Charm ($12), Silky Body Gel ($25) and Pearl Hand Cream ($10).

I adore the new Bonne Mere scent! I had the chance to try the Gentle Body Wash and the milk and honey scent is downright intoxicating. My kids might be getting a few more baths than usual just so I can inhale the sweet scent on them at story time. I also like to add a little to my bath it makes the bathroom smell great and leave my skin smelling fantastic. 

L’OCCITANE Bonne Mere : In Provence, Oh Bonne Mere! is often used in speech to express surprise, relief, joy, a stroke of good luck or, most importantly, kindness. The products in this vintage-inspired collection feature creamy textures and hypoallergenic formulas. Bon Mere’s gentle Body Washes, Hand Washes, Creams and Soaps are perfect for grown-ups and children with even the most sensitive skin.

Each piece in the collection is available in a milk and honey scent, and includes; Gentle Body Wash ($34), Creamy Hand Wash ($20), Gentle Cream ($22) and Soaps ($7).

With very fair skin the worst part of a breakout is the redness that can be hard to conceal. I have found Murad Acne Overnight Soothing Gel really helps clear up the redness while I sleep. The formula spreads well and is really refreshing, with a soft peppermint scent. It makes a noticeable improvement in not only the redness but inflammation of blemishes all while you get your zzz’s!

Murad Acne Overnight Soothing Gel 

Have you ever noticed when you break out you’re not just dealing with the pesky bumps but also the redness, irritation and über sensitivity of your skin? As if the acne isn’t bad enough now you have to figure out how to deal with the redness that it often comes with. Today, Murad is announcing a solution, the launch of Acne Overnight Soothing Gel for red, irritated skin, which is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that work all night to help reduce the tenderness and redness caused by acne.
