Smooth and sweet for Valentine’s Day: PurErb Hand Treatment and Farmhouse Fresh Plum Chiffon Shea Butter Balm

This year, gift something sweet for Valentine’s Day that is more original than flowers or candy. How about some sweet-smelling goodness that also makes for soft, beautiful hands? I can’t get over two beautiful, gorgeous smelling hand treatments:  PurErb Expedition Essentials ($30.00) and Farmhouse Fresh Plum Chiffon All Purpose Balm ($12.50).

The Expedition Essentials Set is my first exposure to PurErb™, an herbology-based skin care line. This gorgeous hand treatment set includes Neroli Baobab Hand Balm and Hand Butter, both great for extremely dry or chapped hands. They come in a sweet gift box and I can’t rave enough about the fragrance. It’s sweet and floral but not overwhelming…to me it smells like lilacs and jasmine, two of my most favorite scents of all time. My dry, itchy hands love a layer of the balm followed by a layer of the butter, and my nose is in total heaven thanks to the incredibly delightful aroma. It seriously lifts my spirits and makes me so happy every time I use it!

Ingredients include exotic oils and butters including Baobab, Abyssinian, Murumuru, Moringa, and Macadamia.

Another great option is the purse-friendly Farmhouse Fresh Plum Chiffon All Purpose Balm ($12.50). This all-purpose balm works on every part of the body from hair to toes, and is slim enough to travel along with you on all your journeys.

I love this for smoothing dry winter hair flyaways, for conditioning rough cuticles, for soothing my chapped lips, and for elimating scaly patches on my hands. Ingredients include pure shea, cocoa, and mango butters. Oh, and the Plum Chiffon scent is amazing! Sugared plum roses….truly delightful.

Don’t fall into that candy and flowers Valentine’s Day trap…use this day of love to pamper your skin and your nose with these sweet-smelling, skin softening treats.  – Lisa
