Hey all! I can’t believe February is almost over! I am so looking forward to spring! I just went out to lock up our chickens and stepped in snow, ice and mud…so tired of winter!
But I’m excited to tell you all about C.O. Bigelow’s new The Iconic Body Care Collection. This has been carefully crafted to “deliver a unique sensorial experience while caring for, and treating, skin. Four aromatic, iconic fragrances were thoughtfully culled from the vast, storied C.O. Bigelow archives and then married with the historically most popular personal care products, creating a new range of expertly blended hand washes, hand creams, body washes, body lotions and body creams.”
I received a few of these amazing products to try out for my honest review.
Here are the products and the scents you can get each in:
Hand Wash ($18): Formulated with aloe vera, shea butter and panthenol, this rich-lathering hand wash combines the most effective cleansing with skin-conditioning ingredients, leaving hands soft and smooth.
Hand Cream ($16): This silky, smooth, non-greasy cream contains shea butter, avocado oil and olive oil, leaving hands soothed and nourished after each use.
Body Wash ($20): Luxurious and refreshing, this body wash features coconut oil and aloe vera, providing a silky, cushioning lather while gently cleansing the skin. The hydrating and soothing ingredients help to maintain moisturization levels for healthier skin.
Body Cream ($30): This ultra-nourishing, restorative body cream is formulated with kukui seed oil, coconut oil and shea butter, providing intense moisture and leaving the skin delicately fragranced.
Body Lotion ($24): Nourishing and conditioning, this lightweight lotion contains borage oil, panthenol and grape seed oil to replenish the skin while leaving it delicately fragranced.

I was lucky to try each fragrance. Aqua Mellis and Bergamot are my favorites. Aqua Mellis is a soft, fruity scent. I have it in a hand cream. The hand cream is very hydrating, which is really needed in the winter!
I have hand wash and body cream in Bergamot. It is a fresh scent and I love the smell of citrus! The hand wash is moisturizing and so pretty! It’s pearly, and really, all of the products are packaged so elegantly! I think my favorite product is the body cream. The bergamot scent is so yummy and the cream is hydrating without being greasy.
Next, I like the West Village Rose body wash. It has a really nice lather, but doesn’t dry out the skin. The scent is nice. Rose scents can be overpowering, but this one isn’t We are enjoying using it.
The last scent I tried is the Musk in a hand wash. I haven’t smelled musk in a while, and this is fine. It is not something I would seek out, though. I’m not the biggest musk fan, but if you are, this one is good.
The prices range from $16-$30. Purchase at http://www.bigelowchemists.com
I think this is a gorgeous, luxe collection. These would make beautiful gifts, as well (Mother’s Day?).
