My Beauty Favorites — Week of August 22-28, 2016

Since school has started for my kids, I find that I have a bit more time for relaxation.

This week I have been loving products that work well for a relaxing bath or hot shower.  They include a mood setting candle, relaxing bubble bath, luxe shower gel with gold and shampoo and conditioner to thicken my hair:

C.O. Bigelow Musk Scented Candle
C.O. Bigelow Musk Scented Candle

 

C.O. Bigelow Musk Scented Candle ($42 USD) — Light the lead-free wick and the cult-classic fragrance of C.O. Bigelow Smooth Musk Perfume Oil permeates the air.  This beloved fragrance opens with Iced Bergamot and evolves to a core of Ylang Ylang, Muguet Petals, and Patchouli, before finishing with dry notes of Vanilla Bean, White Cedar, and Pearlized Musk.

The candle was developed using a proprietary blend of waxes with lead-free wicks to ensure even melting.  Specially crafted candle infused with the highest quality fragrance oils. Burns approximately 60 hours.

What I think: This is a sultry and soothing scent that reminds me of my teens and early 20’s.  But it is way more modern than the classic musk scents.  It’s so nice when taking a bath or just relaxing in the evening. It lasts a very long time, too!

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold Body Wash ($33 USD) — A luxurious bath and shower gel with rich oudh accord and flakes of real gold.

Top note: spicy nutmeg oil.
Heart note: elemi oil.
Base note: rich oudh accord.
Extract: exquisite gold leaf.

What I think:  Another sultry scent, this luxe body wash has little flakes of gold in it.  The scent seems unisex to me, because it is a bit spicy.  It lathers well and leaves skin soft. Great for the whole family!
