I know, I know, it’s all pumpkin and cranberry these days, but I still can’t ever get enough coconut. For Thanksgiving, we didn’t served mulled wine or anything like that – we served what we call ‘mom’s drink’ – Malibu Coconut Rum with Diet Vernors. Seriously, you’ve got to try it – everyone LOVES it, best drink ever! Anyway, coconut – I love the scent, and I love products that have coconut oil and coconut extract because they are so good for skin. My coconut muse these days is the fabulous Georgette Klinger because she has the most amazing coconut cleanser and facial mist.samples
Georgette’s story is really intriguing. She was Miss Budapest in 1936. She was given some cosmetics that gave her a terrible case of acne which spurred her interest in skin care. She had to leave Europe to escape the Nazi’s and opened a skin care spa on Madison Avenue in 1941. She was ahead of her time with her holistic, natural, and science based approach to skin care, an approach her line still follows to this day.
I am head over heels with two of her products, the Coconut Cleansing Milk and the Coconut Facial Mist. The Coconut Cleansing Milk ($22) is a wonderful cleanser – first, it smells INCREDIBLE. I know my coconut scents and this is one of the best ever. Deep, rich, fabulous. The ingredients are top notch – coconut oil, coconut extract, grape and cucumber extracts, everything you need to cleanse and soothe skin, hydrating and plumping, leaving it feeling soft and fantastic. This is a very gentle cleanser that will work on all skin types. If you love coconut, you will wonder what you ever did without this – and you’ll never want to be without it again. It’s that good, my friends.
The Coconut Facial Mist ($9) is a perfect pick-me-up throughout the day, especially in the winter with the soul-sucking indoor dry heat. I use it to refresh my makeup during the day, or after a workout, or any time I just want a quick refresher. It smells delicious – not quite as intense as the cleanser, but still enough coconut to put a huge smile on my face. Ingredients include coconut, botanicals, and aloe extract, all things that skin just loves. This is a best seller for Georgette Klinger and I can see why.
Georgette Klinger products are made in the USA and are cruelty free, paraben free, and dye free. There is a very nice range of products so take a look – and whatever you do, pick up the Coconut Cleansing Milk. It’s fantastic. – Lisa
