Valentine's Day Gift Guide - Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Collection

The Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Collection is inspired by the tradition of care and well-being through plants. They’re made from the highest quality botanicals, garden-fresh and blended according to time-honored traditions for radiant results. Loving Care products are ideal for all skin types (they’re actually gentle enough to use on babies), with blends that are all super-hydrating and healing, to leave skin looking smooth and bright during these cold months.  

The Lotion for Dry Skin ($36, 13.5 fl. oz.): A skin-soothing blend of plant and flower essences, this daily hydrator offers softness and moisture for everyone, every day. The non-greasy formula sinks in instantly to leave skin soothed and dewy. It’s hypoallergenic, so it can be used by the entire family, and is suitable for the most sensitive skin — babies’ included. Galen’s Wax, made in-house, protects skin and leaves it supple while Calendula extract soothes and Mallow extract tackles dryness.

3-in-1 Micellar Water ($19, 13.5 fl. oz.): A remarkably mild yet effective daily cleansing lotion for all skin types. Made with Cornflower Water and Chamomile Floral Water from an original recipe, the formula gently removes all traces of make-up and grime without stripping your skin of essential moisture. Its soothing, hypoallergenic formula won’t irritate sensitive skin or eyes. It’s even suited for delicate baby skin.

Loving Care Lip Balm ($23, 1.7 oz.): Made with reparative and protective Galen’s Wax, the rich formula comforts feelings of irritation and tightness of the skin. Suitable for the whole family – just apply a generous amount on dry and irritated zones and massage gently until fully absorbed.

My thoughts

Everyone loves soft skin. What could be a better gift for your Valentine.  Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Collection offers several wonderful products with classic charm.

The Lotion for Dry Skin- This lotion is really is a heavenly experience. There is no sticky residue like you get with some lotions.  The lotion is gentle against your skin. It goes on smooth and never feels greasy.  It has a light scent that isn't overpowering, but leaves you feeling refreshed. This is a great  lotion that will protect sensitive skin from the harsh winter elements, but also leaves you feeling light and refreshed in the summer. It's an affordable way to get a spa experience right in your own home, and a wonderful treat for your skin.

3-in-1 Micellar Water - I am incredibly lazy when it comes to washing my face, I admit it. This is quite possibly the easiest "wash your face" routine anyone could come up with. Fast and easy, this is my go-to facial cleanser now. I wake up in the morning, squirt a little in my hand and apply to face!  As for the effectiveness of the water, it does do well with getting the makeup off my skin.  All around great product.

Gardener's Hand Healer- . I have had a horrible time with dry hands lately. I think it's because we keep going from hot to cold, to hot. I usually have to apply lotion several times to my hands, mainly my finger tips. With this, I was able to put it on once and it lasted for hours. It seems to be fragrance free as well.

In addition to providing great results, I love the bottles. They have the same design they since 1862, Using these products is like getting a little piece of history. With 
 Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Collection, you can give your Valentine soft and beautiful skin. That's a gift you can both enjoy
