It definitely is starting to feel like fall in Kansas City. It’s a bit cooler at least.
I was sent the following Le Couvent des Minimes for my honest review. Made in a cloister in the French countryside, these products are crafted with care and love.
Le Couvent des Minimes Smile Lip Balm Rose and Berries (Price: $9 USD) — I love the feel and scent of this lip balm. Inspired by the sisters’ benevolent works, that so often brought a smile back to the faces of convent residents, the smile lip balm rose and berries aroma helps to nourish and repair lips on a daily basis.
The original recipe combines softening marshmallow with nourishing shea butter and protective apricot oil, its formula with a floral rose and berries aroma works to provide lasting moisture and protection for lips!
Le Couvent des Minimes Botanical Recipe of the Cloister Fresh Moisturizing Body Gel Cream ($18 USD)– Shea butter works with rose oil to help your skin retain its natural moisture while other essential oils exfoliate. This smooths and hydrates my skin amazingly and the scent is fresh and romantic! I love this on my dry skin when it gets colder.
Le Couvent des Minimes Invigorating Body Splash, Verbena and Lemon ($44 USD) –This is a very fresh, lemony scent and is light enough to spray all over. It combines the invigorating properties of Lemon and Verbena with the firming qualities of prele to revitalize and tone the body. This is nice after a bath or shower.
Le Couvent des Minimes Botanical Cologne of the Morning Orange and Basil ($38 USD) — The fragrance opens with crisp notes of apple that mingle with the freshness of orange and lemon. The heart reveals a delicate pear flower, magnified by fig flower and fresh basil. The base notes of woods, cedar and soft musk give a feeling of serenity.
I think this is a fresh scent for autumn with the fruit and wood accords. It is perfect for those who don’t usually wear extreme floral scents!
Le Couvent des Minimes is currently available at Amazon.com and DermStore.com
