EauMG’s Favorite Shower Gels

Marilyn Monroe Shower

As corny as it sounds, I view bathing as a ritual. For me, it represents rebirth. At the end of the day, I can wash away my sorrows and start fresh. In the morning, I can prepare myself for an erratic day. For five or ten minutes daily, this is my time to start over. And as woo as it sounds, I take this time to reflect on the positive things in my life¹, of course, while using products with scents that I enjoy.

It’s no secret that I… Continue reading | 13 Comments

Ayres Soap & Shower Cream Review

vintage Buenos Aires map

Ayres (like Buenos Aires)  is an aromatherapeutic bath and body line inspired by Argentina and created by Argentinian in America, Alejandro Rasic. The line is based on aromatherapy but I find that these products have complex scents that easily compete with more “perfumey” products.

Scentsy Layers Shower Cream & Body Lotion in Love Story Review

Eight Lavender Body Moisture & Body Wash Review

Eight Body Moisture Products in Lavender

Over the years I have tried so many lavender body products. I have been looking for body products that smell like actual lavender flowers drying in the sun. I have found it. Eight Body Product line’s lavender is perfect. My search is over. Eight’s Lavender isn’t too “medicinal” and has that realistic, natural sweetness of lavender with just enough medicinal to make it aromatic. It smells just like the French lavender growing in my cottage garden.
