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.

LUSH Cosmetics Valentine’s Day 2013

LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH Cosmetics is celebrating massage for Valentine’s Day 2013!  I like Lush Cosmetics view that “Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about spending the big-bucks or grand, over-the-top gestures.” The following are available online, and at your local LUSH store. You may want to call ahead if you’re looking for a specific item, since I’ve found that seasonal items can be sold out quickly.

LUSH products are 100% vegetarian, 82% vegan, 60% preservative-free, and no animal testing being done on LUSH products or ingredients.

Tender is the Night Massage Bar ($7.95) Vegan

LUSH Cosmetics

A heart-shaped massage bar that you can either break off a small pieces from, or simply crush the whole thing in your hand to get to the soft centre  This uses fair trade shea and murumuru butters.  Inside is the soft core of almond oil, agave syrup, cupuacu and glycerine. Scented with vanilla absolute, jasmine and ylang ylang.   

 From Dusk ‘Til Dawn Massage Bar ($7.95) Vegan

LUSH Cosmetics

Shaped like a cone, you can use the pointy end to rub out any knotted muscles. This is made with moisturizing and softening cocoa and shea butter, and moringa oil. Scented with a blend of sweet wild orange oil and lemon oil. Also has ginseng and ginkgo powder.   

The Kiss Lip Gloss ($8.95) Vegan

LUSH Cosmetics

This is a preservative free lip gloss.  This softening, moisturizing gloss is said to feel lighter than the other balms because of its new aerated formula.  It leaves a delicate pink hue on the lips, and has sweet candy taste.  

 Willow Pattern Soap ($9.00 for ¼ lb.)

LUSH Cosmetics

This soap resembles a Willow Pattern china plate, which portrays star crossed lovers in a carving in blue on the top.  The soap base has cornflour and talc which will soften dry, sore skin.  There is also rose absolute, rose oil and rosewood oil, which make it very moisturizing.


Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar ($5.95), was a favorite in 2012, and LUSH has brought it back:

Kat Burki Lavender Lightly Body Crème Review

Kat Burki Lavender Lightly Body Crème

kat burki

After a long winter here, on the East Coast, I decided to herald the arrival of spring by purchasing a Kat Burki Lavender Lightly Body Crème.

While Kat Burki just opened a store in Connecticut this past March, I ordered online at  The Kat Burki online site has categories to browse the many elegant and beautiful looking items – everything from women’s clothing and jewelry, to gifts for the home. My purchase was from the Body and Bath Collection.  All of the beauty products are completely natural. The Kat Burki crèmes are made with organic ingredients and, as is a requirement of my purchasing any item, cruelty free.

 Kat Burki Fragrances

The Kat Burki fragrances include tuberose, cacao, eucalyptus & verbena, eau de poire, sugar magnolia, rosa baroque, avocado & cucumber, white tea, freesia & pink grapefruit, and my choice for review, lavender lightly.

Kat Burki Mail Order

The package came expertly wrapped for shipping. Great customer service to have bubble wrap lining the inside of the shipping box and additional bubble wrap around the beautiful lavender colored print box. In addition, enclosed in a Kat Burki envelope was a stylish note card which read:

Kat Burki

What a nice touch!

 Even before I opened the box to reveal the 6 ounce double-walled glass jar with gold foil writing, I anticipated being treated to something special. I was not disappointed! It was rich and creamy and soaked right into my skin leaving it feeling very soft.  Even though I know I applied it with a heavy hand because it was such a wonderful indulgence, and of course, for testing purposes, it did not feel greasy. The lavender scent is aptly named, lightly, as it is beautifully scented, not overpowering.

Final Details About Kat Burki

All of the Kat Burki Cremès are available in both a 6 oz.  glass jar ($52), and a 2 oz. size container ($15) at Kat Burki’s Westport, CT store, and at
