My Favorite Beauty Indulgences
There are many things in life I love to indulge in—good food, sweet treats, long baths, and almost anything aromatic. When it comes to beauty, my favorite indulgence is moisturizer. While I actually prefer simple baby lotion as an everyday moisturizer (I love the smell), hand creams and lip balms are two products I love to luxuriate in. Lucky for me, I haven’t needed to buy a hand cream for myself for some time as I have sets I received as gifts from students.
After several days of suspicious questioning from one of my sweethearts this year, Ms. Jen, do you love hand cream? ...Yes? Why haven’t you been using the one from earlier this year? I ran out. Do you love flowers? Yes! What’s your favorite smell? Why are you asking these questions, S?, I received this L’Occitane set as an end-of-year and goodbye gift. (The pretty flowers were a gift from another sweet student and I can’t get over them.)
L’Occitane make rich, nourishing, and lovely scented products. My favorites include their hand creams and almond shower oil (perfect for bathing and shaving). My other favorite hand cream is this one by Aesop, which, admittedly, is partly because of the packaging.
I’m happy to try the rose lip balm, but my favorite lip balms are Nuxe’s Reve de Miel for every day, Josie Maran’s Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil for intense moisture overnight, and Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatments for SPF and a tint on the lips (my favorite shades are Petal and Rosé).
What are your favorite beauty (or other) indulgences?
