Click on the top line of titles to open each item!  12graceysmallAnd now that we have spent an issue on our favourite beauty bargains I want to take a minute to sing the praises of a beauty splurge or two. There are not some pricy items that you will can never duplicate –nor would you want to as they would lose their magic. For me it is fragrance and foundation.  I love Chanel and Guerlain’s Shalimar and Jicky. I have a few other French scents I swoon over and pricy essential oils that are sold in tiny vials. When it comes to foundation and BB creams I don’t want to see it on my face and invisibility is costly. I used to think some of my favourite face creams were pricy at several hundred dollars a jar –but now days there are so many creams that cost much more. But the point is every beauty lover has her thing – a must-have mascara, gloss, or potion.  So darlings embrace the splurges and love bargains –they all make you feel fabulous.

Beautiful indulgences

Crabtree & Evelyn’s New Citron, Honey and Coriander Body Care collection is a delightful way to bring a breath of spring into dreary winter days. The luxurious line is inspired by the crisp scents of lush Mediterranean orchards.

The line is full of botanicals and contains a combination of vitamin-rich fruit extracts. The products are also blended with purifying herbs, luxurious shea butter, evening primrose oil as well as AHA sugar acids, to smooth and refine your skin. This Crabtree & Evelyn line leaves your skin feeling soft, rejuvenated and pampered even in the most drying weather.
The light citrus fragrance mixed with notes of sweet honey, juniper and cypress, and is finished with just a hint of peppery coriander seed. There are few things that make a woman feel more pampered than a whole range of luxurious bath and body products.
Print this out if you feel your honey needs help with Valentine’s Day shopping. Most men appreciate helpful hints. Or treat yourself, your mother, or a friend. Prices range between $10 and $28.
The line is free from all parabens, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, and mineral oil. The collection includes: Skin Indulging Body Soufflé, Skin Smoothing Body Scrub, Skin Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel, Skin Quenching Body Lotion and a Refreshing Body Bar.
