Perlier Bath and Body Products Review

Cruelty free company, Perlier, from Italy, has been in business for over eighty years manufacturing products derived from the active ingredients of medicinal plants. I received this wonderful Eight Piece Travel Set that is available exclusively on the Home Shopping Network:


Embarrassingly, I had not previously tried any of Perlier’s products, so I was so excited to have a chance to test so many of their bath and body products at once.

Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection Holiday Set

Erno Laszlo

Erno Laszlo company celebrates his 85th Anniversary (1927-2012), and I have a review of  two of the products contained in the Limited Edition, The Hollywood Collection Holiday Set. Dr. Erno Laszlo was known for not only creating products and beauty regimes for Hollywood celebrities, but also for having products available for those who wanted to have a complexion like those of the beautiful people! Erno Laszlo didn’t believe in magic potions, in fact one of his famous quotes is, “Beautiful skin requires a commitment, not a miracle.” Erno Laszlo is considered to be the founder of modern skin care as many products today were inspired by his brand.

 Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection Holiday Set


Erno Laszlo

Marilyn Monroe was a friend of Erno Laszlo and a huge fan of his products. The Hollywood Collection, which is a limited edition, is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Dr. Laszlo custom blended formulas for Marilyn’s skincare needs. The two products in the Collection are inspired by the actual notes that Dr. Laszlo had created especially for Ms. Monroe. The duo is $75.00, and are for all skin types.

This is what is written on the back of the Collection box:

Erno Laszlo

The Hollywood Collection is a very luxurious body duo that include a 6.8 oz. Hydra Therapy Bath and Shower Gel and an 6.8 oz. Hydra Therapy BodySkin Cream.

 Erno Laszlo

With the Hydra-Therapy Bath and Shower Gel, you will very quickly be able to have a to have a really thick, rich foam that smells wonderful. It has a light floral scent to it. It is advertised as being able to “wash away the cares of the day while energizing the skin and body.” Very accurate! Although the Holiday season can be very joyous, it is also sometimes stressful. I used the Hydra-Therapy Bath and Shower Gel in the shower and washed all my holiday tension away. It is wonderful!

When your skin is dry it’s not only unattractive, but it could be a sign of your skin’s aging process. By using a moisturizer that is very nourishing, like Hydra-Therapy BodySkin Cream, you will help to prevent the signs of aging that occur when you lose moisture. The hydrating body cream is very rich and creamy, and will smooth your the skin with super antioxidant properties. This cream has a very nice, subtle, floral scent.

Erno Laszlo has legions of loyal followers, and after trying the body duo, it’s easy to see why.

Andalou Naturals Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel Review

Andalou Naturals

Andalou Naturals

Andalou Naturals is a brand that I had seen before in local stores that carry organic and natural beauty products. However, I had not yet had a chance to try it. I was fortunate to have the company contact me to ask if I would like to review one of their products. (And for the record, agreeing to have the product sent to me for review does not mean that I’m in any way committed to then “liking” the product, or even doing a written review!)

I looked into Andalou Naturals, and all of their products; skin, hair and body care are all made by blending advanced Fruit Stem Cell Science with natural and fair-trade ingredients. A minimum of 70% certified organic content is used, so that visible and healthy results are seen!

Andalou Naturals has based their company on “an ethos of sustainability and social responsibility” by incorporating a strong philanthropic element. Readers, please take note of this: for every Website sale and newsletter subscription, (see the website for sign-up,) the company donates $1.00 to one of their four charitable organizations.

In addition, 100% of Andalou’s special-edition, A Force of Nature Hand Cream’s net sales–both in store–and online–goes to charityI did not receive this Hand Cream, but I wanted to mention it for your consideration since the net sales all go to charity!

However, I really liked the Andalou Naturals sample that I was sent, and would highly recommend: the Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel.

Andalou Naturals Ingredients

This particular shower gel contains 72% certified organic ingredients. It contains a mix of mandarin vanilla, organic aloe vera, and very gentle botanicals that did leave my skin very soft, and smelling lovely! I also liked that after I applied to wet skin in the shower, I had a very nice, rich lather.

Final Thoughts About Andalou Naturals

I love that Andalou Naturals Shower Gel is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny and also Vegan. In addition, as with all their products, the shower gel has been tested by the Food Allergy Research & Resource Program (FARRP) on behalf of Celiac Spruce Association (CSA) and are verified to be gluten-free.

Disclosure: I received one (11 fl oz bottle) of Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel. All the links in this post are for your convenience only.
