Getting a jump start on your holiday shopping? PuraBotanica has some amazing products sure to be a fit for the on-the- go jet setter on your list, or even your worn out BFF who's in serious need of some TLC this season!
PR kindly sent me a lovely sample from the brand's newest line Freshly Minted and I've been indulging in some bath time serenity ever since!
Freshly Minted is the brand's latest line of luxurious hair and bath-and-body products, cleanses, nourishes, and moisturizes precious hair, scalp, and skin with a selection of fine, nature-derived ingredients. The shampoo, cleanser, and lotion are certified by the Natural Products Association based on ingredient, safety, environmental, and sustainability standards. The products are free of sulfates, parabens, synthetic preservatives or fragrance, and phthalates.
The kit includes:
• True Shampoo maintains shine and manageability with organic aloe and shea butter. Vitamins E, B5, and wheat protein strengthen.
• In Condition moisturizes and invigorates the scalp with Marula nut, jojoba seed and peppermint oils.
• Body Beautiful Cleanser cleanses and moisturizes with organic aloe and shea butter.
• Lotion to Love leaves skin moist and supple with all-natural avocado, coconut, and olive oils.
I love this lavish little kit because it fits snugly in any travel bag or can sit decoratively on your bathroom shelf. Its contents are truly that of an at home spa experience and will leave your senses reeling. My favorite aspect of the line is definitely its addictive minty scent. The scent is present in each item, but most evident in the lotion. After using the cleanser, my skin felt soft and smooth, but the lotion was by far my favorite. It left a tingling sensation all over, and combined with its invigorating scent, was a totally sensual experience. The shampoo and conditioner were very light on my hair and did not weigh it down at all.
Another item I fell in love with was their Botanic Bath Infusion Bath Salts. They combine restorative mineral sea salts, fragrant essential oils, and curative herbs and flowers in an all natural formula. I tried the Rose Retreat, a combination of pink Andean and Atlantic sea salts with calming rose and geranium. In a matter of minutes, the light, floral scent transported me to total zen. Its a great gift for that over worked friend or loved one needing to adopt some R&R into their routine. They're available in three other heavenly scents:
• Lost in Lavender blends Andean sea salts from Bolivia with a soothing mix of lavender, chamomile, and lemongrass.
• Moments in Mint is a curative, invigorating fusion of Atlantic sea salts, mint, and eucalyptus.
• Pick Me Up is an awakening mix of Himalayan salts, orange, and lavender.
*Packaged in convenient mess free bags, they're also 100% biodegradable*
A favorite of Kyle Richards from Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, PuraBotanica's Jewelry Travel Case keeps yours gems and necklaces neatly tucked away in a series of easy access compartments. I'm partial to this because it has a sophisticated design and these cases are always useful.
If you're a jewelry junkie like myself you can't go on any over night trip without one. Its lined with soft as suede material to protect against scratching and just screams chic. It comes in darker, more masculine colours as well making it totally appropriate for the accessory conscious man as well as the modern day woman.
Do you think you will consider any of these items this year? Which has you most intrigued?
