Mother’s Day Beauty Gift Guide

Hi all! It was a beautiful day in Kansas City today, it’s definitely spring!

I have another Mother’s Day Gift guide for you! These are items that I love and think will make great gifts:

This Mother’s Day or any day when Mom deserves a little pampering, let her indulge in a journey of the senses with South of France all-natural soaps (www.southoffrancebodycare.com). They’re kettle-cooked in small batches using a traditional Marseille triple-milled recipe to create a creamy lather that leaves skin soft and moisturized. And she can choose from one of 14 transporting scents including almond gourmande, blooming jasmine, climbing wild rose, lavender fields, lemon verbena, lush gardenia or mediterranean fig. All South of France liquid and bar soaps are free of synthetic foaming agents like sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, as well as glutens, EDTA, parabens, and phthalates.

I received some of their newest scents to try — Glazed Apricots, Violet Bouquet, and Cherry Blossom.  They are all very fresh and sweet, so nice for spring.  My favorite is Cherry Blossom, but my family loves all of them.

You can find South of France products in natural and grocery stores nationwide.  Check their website here for locations.
