Eau D'Italie Liquid Soap and Body Lotion - Fig and Berries

 Do you love luxe hand soaps ? I do, I admit. They're a real treat. Elevating the everyday I guess we'd call it and I am all for that. 

As a fan of Eau D'Italie's fragrances it wasn't hard to imagine I'd love their  newest releases of  liquid hand soap and body lotion. 

Both liquid soap and lotions come in eight  different scents housed in 300 ml pump bottles.  All the fragrances sounded  quite good but I went with Fig  & Berries.  The hand soap is lightly scented with a green , berry fragrance. It's not overly noticeable but soft. The soap itself is a thin liquid that doesn't lather too much , which I like,  but gets hands clean without drying them out thanks to coconut and olive fruit oil . Do I love this, yes. I use it sparingly so it doesn't run out too quick.

The body lotion is well scented , not too thick or too thin lotion and   moisturizes nicely with shea butter and almond oil .  It dries pretty fast too, leaving a soft scent trail behind. Fig and Berries is slightly sweet  and woodsy with plenty of fig and blackberry. The lotion is more strongly scented than the soap with more of the berry and fig. 

With Easter and Mother's Day coming , these make great gifts .  Useful but deluxe selfcare,  who doesn't want a little bit of  Italy, the Amalfi Coast and Positano where the brand originates from,  by the bedside or vanity ?   It's all La Dolce Vita. 

Eau D'Italie hand soaps, body lotions and fragrances are exclusive to  in the US. You can find the full selection online .

Byroe Skincare

I was introduced to Byroe this past Summer and it's been love . The brand calls it Superfood skincare as they use  upcycled fruits and vegetables in their formulas.

Three that  I am  loving right now are:

Truffle Eye Serum-  The Mom also signs off on this one. She just told me she's almost done hers. Ok, but I'm not giving my tube up.  The lightweight creamy serum moisturizes well with three different hyaluronic acids,  shea butter and  avocado peptides, smoothes a little and feels so silky on the eye area. It works well under makeup or at night. I use it both times of day.  It's also  the rare eye treatment that comes in a 1 oz tube  so it lasts longer and a little goes a long way , you don't need to apply a lot. 

 Pumpkin Pro Retinol Cream - One of their newer products, this uses upcycled  vitamin rich pumpkin along with   retinol derived from calendula ,  bakuchiol  and  botanical oils and extracts.  It's very  hydrating , thick ( and orange) but doesn't stay sticky or heavy on skin  and is very gentle.   It can be used day and night ,a great multi tasker to get treatment and moisture in one. The Mom was out of face cream a couple weeks ago so I gave her the remainder of my jar and while she was not sure about pumpkin before trying it, she  absolutely loves it . It's been  smoothing and hydrating but gentle and is another product where you don't need a lot .  Plus slathering on the orange tinted cream is kind of fun. 

 Kiwi Detox Gel  Cleanser- I love a good green gel cleanser and I swear even though I know cleansers aren't on your face long enough to do a  lot beyond cleanse, my skin feels smoother after using this. There's  BHA in salicylic acid, AHA in citric acid and PHA in gluconolactone in there for smoothing.  Arnica to soothe and a list of vegetable and fruits extracts inlcuding Kiwi . It's very easy on skin,  works well for oily/combo skin with no dryness / tightness.   Plus it looks and smells good .
