Cote Bastide Vineyard Peach Shower Gel

Cote Bastide Shower GelWhy not start your morning off with a sensual experience? The vineyard peach shower gel from Cote Bastide is like immersing yourself in world of simple pleasures. Lathering up this morning, I was transported to a lazy summer day in the South of France, where all my cares were washed away.

This light and lovely shower gel is infused with the sweet summer scent of fresh peaches, enhanced with just a hint of apricot. Cote Bastide really nailed the formulation, too. Think of a traditional vine ripened peach aroma captured in a beautifully designed glass bottle reminiscent of days gone by.Treat yourself to this simple pleasure, the smell of summer peaches will surely remind you to relax the next time you are squished on the subway on your way in to work.

Burt’s Bees…Sweet As Honey

Burt's Bees Milk and Honey Body LotionI am a bonafide moisture junkie. From hydrating lotions and bath oil sprays to thick, rich body butters and creams, my skin drinks up a moisturizer faster than my flat iron heats up, and I have a CHI so you know that’s fast! Always a lover of the various fragrances and textures I experience from product to product, I’m favoring the sweet scent and lightweight feel of Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion lately.

Think of the calming properties of milk combined with the nourishing, restorative properties of honey (and a little coconut oil) mixed into a silky, smooth lotion that softens your skin from head to toe. You can practically feel it calming your skin the second you smooth it on, and the soft honey scent is really yummy, not too thick or sugary.

To me, Burt’s Bees products are truly one of a kind. Their corporate mission is dedicated to scouring the earth in search of the most natural, effective ingredients available, and they intentionally design their packaging so that you’ll use the products up before they expire. How smart is that?

With en environmentally friendly packaging, and gentle formulations created from as many natural ingredients as possible, Burt’s Bees products really are “harvested from nature.” I really love their entire product line, but today is a milk and honey day.
