Summer is still going strong in Kansas City. I love using products that are good for my skin during the hot months. I love natural products with moisturizing ingredients.
My faves this week include lovely lavender products, a wild rose facial peel, a creamy body scrub and a hydrating foot mask:
L’Occitane Lavender Relaxing Candle ($25 USD 3.5 oz) — Imagine the fragrant atmosphere of a relaxing break in the shade of a Provençal farmhouse, surrounded by fields of lavender…This scented candle will give your interior a Provencal atmosphere for up to 23 hours.
L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream ($22 USD 2.6 oz) — Enriched with shea butter and lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence, this smooth, light-textured cream gently helps to nourish the hands leaving them softly perfumed.
What I think: I love the clean, lavender scent of these. L’Occitane’s hand creams are my favorites. They are so moisturizing, but not greasy at all, which is so important for a hand cream. The candle smells amazing and burns really clean. Love!

KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Petal Peel ($64 USD) — A powerful two-step peel made with wild rose oil and other natural active ingredients to reveal radiant, petal soft skin in under 10 minutes. A powerful natural alternative to chemical peels, this advanced vitamin C brightening system supports natural cell renewal, helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and discolorations, and gives skin an instant boost of radiance.
What I think: This set is so easy to use. Apply the gel for 30 seconds, then apply the mask over it. Leave that on for 3-10 minutes, depending on how sensitive your skin is. I left it on for 5 minutes. I washed it off and notices smoother, clearer skin. This is great to use about once a week.

Lavanila Laboratories Healthy Vanilla Bean Cream Body Scrub ($40 USD) — Crushed Madagascar vanilla beans blend with whipped shea butter and five nourishing essential oils for an ultra creamy, luxurious exfoliator that gently reveals smooth, glowing skin.
What I think: This smells amazing! A very rich vanilla scent. The crushed vanilla beans exfoliate so well while the oils and shea butter leave my skin smooth and ready for anything (self tanning)! I love that this is a natural product and that it leaves my skin smelling amazing.

PediSpa Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask ($9.99 USD for two pairs) — PediSpa Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask noticeably smoothes, softens and repairs dry, crack, calloused feet and heels, significantly improving the look and feel of even the driest feet. SMOOTHES. SOFTENS. REPAIRS. Contains: Shea Butter, Apple Extract & Peppermint.
What I think: I have tried all sorts of face masks, but never a foot mask! I think this is a really smart idea. I really try to keep my feet soft in the summer, but it’s hard in the weather, wearing sandals, etc. I left these on for about a half an hour and rubbed in the excess serum. My feet were smooth and soft!
