Loving L’Occitane’s Delightful Hands Collection!

This Mother’s Day, I gave my mother-in-law this very gift box, and it was a huge hit! I was a bit sad to see it go – because I want one for myself! This is – if you ask me – the perfect gift set, for any occasion. This trio of hydrating and nourishing hand creams lets the senses escape through the delicate fragrance of Peony, the smoothness of Almond and the protection of L’Occitane’s best-selling Shea Butter. The set comes in a beautifully decorated box with a card and ribbon included, making this the perfect gift.

The Collection includes the Pivoine Flora Hand Cream, Shea Butter Hand Cream and Almond Smooth Hands. Price: $28

L’Oreal being sued because one of their products if flammable???

I was really shocked to read this news this morning – doesn’t seem like this could be true! Apparently L’Oreal is the subject of a new class action lawsuit claiming their product, Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum is flammable!

Women’s Wear Daily reports today that the lawsuit against L’Oreal is on: A judge granted class action to four plaintiffs on Thursday who filed the motion for class certification on Feb. 2. The plaintiffs are seeking recognition for any person who purchased the Garnier serum from Feb. 4, 2008, to the present.

According to the lawsuit and Top Class Actions law blog, the Garnier serum’s two main ingredients are cyclopentasiloxane and dimethiconol, chemicals that can ignite at 171 degrees Fahrenheit. (Flat iron temperatures typically range from 300-450 degrees Fahrenheit.)

A copy of the original lawsuit, filed in June 2011, can be found here.

OMG. We’ve totally used that stuff before, without any bonfire-type incidents. But of course, flammable products are not exactly something you want coming between your hair and a high-heat styling appliance like a blow dryer or flat iron, which most women use on a regular basis.

We’ve contacted L’Oreal for comment on this lawsuit, and we’ll keep you posted on whether the Garnier anti-frizz serum will be yanked from the shelves, but in the meantime, check out some other controversial beauty products below.

Imagine how scary that would be! A class action lawsuit means that this has happened many times. Scary!!

Might want to beware of this product, ladies!
