Vacation vibes anytime
It may still be summer according to the calendar, but my days of laziness and lounging are over. With school back in session (as of yesterday) I hit the ground running at the literal crack of dawn, and I’ve made breakfast, lunch and worked out before most people even head into the office. Needless to say, our vacation to St. Barths seems like a distant memory even though it was only six weeks ago—but thanks to Ligne St. Barths’ Deluxe Mini “Massage” sampler set, I can revisit paradise anytime.
I brought home lots of European beauty goodies, but this one might be my favorite. I figured it would be the perfect way to sample some of the island-based brand’s best-sellers—and I was so right. (The packaging also looks fab on the side of my bathtub.)
I’ve enjoyed each and every one of these body products, even for post-shower use rather than an actual massage. The Avocado Oil is more than a moisturizer, it can be used as a bath oil and makeup remover as well, and the delicate scent is just divine. The Firming Body Gel glides on and absorbs quickly, and I’m certainly not complaining that it contains a slew of botanical extracts to fight cellulite. The Relaxing Oil with Camphor and Menthol is amazing when my muscles are sore—but just be careful if you apply on the upper thighs because you don’t want to get it on your VJ (trust me). And lastly, the Pure Coconut Oil isn’t all that different than other coconut oils, but it’s French, which definitely gives it a leg up.
For the record, this sampler set only cost $28 in St. Barths (as opposed to the $49 online price) so I highly recommend stocking up if you’re ever in that neck of the woods! It makes a perfect gift for anyone back home—just be sure to get one for yourself!
