Small business Saturday is back! And this time I’m featuring…
I didn’t know I loved the scent of lemons until the BIO-BEAUTÉ by NUXE Corsican Citron line landed on my doorstep. And now I’m walking around smelling like a delicious lemon vanilla cake…
This new body care line is all based around the extract from Corsican lemons, made by macerating the entire lemon in organic sunflower oil. This process not only gives you the purest extract but it also adds essential fatty acids into the mix while preserving the anti-oxidant and toning properties of the citrus.
A range of certified organic body care combining the toning properties of Corsican Citron extract with organic botanical oils offering perfect affinity with the skin. Active ingredients concentrated in the heart of novel active textures, enhanced by the sunny scent of the essential oils.
The raw materials used in these products are souced from local cooperatives and fair trade networks, so you can feel good knowing that what you put on your body is manufactured in a fair and sustainable way.
And when brands send you lemons…. make lemon photos.
The 24hr Refreshing Deodorant ($13 CAD) is a non-irritating way to elimate odor and purify without using alcohol or aluminum. You won’t see any white marks or yellow stains either! This formula contains 10 essential oils: lemon, orange, patchouli, cardamom, clow, gaiac wood, cedar. And it also has a mixture of floral waters: lavender, rosemary, sage, peppermint, lemon balm. Now that mix may sound a bit odd, but trust me it creates a heavenly scent. The starch powder helps keep your pits dry while aloe vera soothes. Now I use anti-perspirant on gym days, but on every other day, I’ll be using this.
The Toning & Nourishing Satin-Touch Oil ($26 CAD) is made with organic fair-trade sesame oil and is one of the best dry oils I have ever used. It melts and absorbs into my skin immediately so I’m not left with a greasy residue. It leaves behind a subtle glow, smooth skin and a beautiful sweet lemon scent. I even use this in my hair! The distinctive scent comes from 7 different essential oils: lemon, tahiti lime, orange, petitgrain, exotic verbena, white grapefruit, red cedar with a hit of vanilla in the base.
The BIO-BEAUTÉ by NUXE Corsican Citron line launches in Canada exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart in June. There’s also a Toning & Exfoliating Gel in this line that I definitely want to try out because I am hooked!
