Today I have a review of the Aloe + Rosewater Balance Mist from Little Barn Apothecary that came in my July Petit Vour Box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]
A supercharged replenishing and nourishing facial mist with the added benefits of natural botanicals – rose, aloe, hibiscus and witch hazel. This unique combination provides the skin with antioxidant protection known widely to assist in supporting the skin’s own collagen production. Aromas: Deep floral & fresh.
I am a huge fan of facial mists. This one has very simple, skin friendly, ingredients. I’ve been keeping mine in the fridge, and whenever I need a refreshing blast of moisture, I give my face a spritz.
The scent is very much rose and a fresh note – I would guess that the aloe is what gives it that extra fresh scent. I absolutely love the scent!
Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Hamamelus Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Distillate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate (Natural Preservative), Hibiscus Sabdariffa (Hibiscus Flower)
The sample size is 1 oz for $8 USD, travel size is 2 oz for $16 USD, and the full size is 4 oz for $32 USD

Today I have a review of one of the treats that I purchased for myself in Estonia – the Luxurious Rose Bathmilk (Luksuslik roosi vannipiim) from Joik.
Here’s a little background info on Joik (Info in italics taken from their website):
Estonia is a country of nature – big forests, rivers and lakes and being in touch with nature is an important part of peoples lives, folk traditions are still remembered and carried along from generation to generation. At JOIK we combine ancient skills and knowledge about how to use plants for the benefit of health and beauty with modern research, ingredients and production technologies.
In our products we use only the best highest quality ingredients from respected manufacturers. Including nordic plant extracts into our products is important for us and as much as possible we use Estonian ingredients – local canola oil, sea buckthorn oil, herbs and honey are an important part of our products.
All JOIK products are made in accordance with best manufacturing practices and are never tested on animals.
And now onto the product itself:
From ancient times milk baths are well known as luxurious skin caring treatments.
Real full milk powder turns bathwater milky and makes skin silky soft.
Minerals rich seasalt relieves muscle tensions and tones the skin.
A feminine scent of aromatic roses soothes the senses and gently lingers on the skin.
The Luxurious Rose Bathmilk is a beautiful, gentle milk bath with a gorgeous true rose scent. The bathmilk contains dried rose petals – something that I’m not usually a fan of, because often it reminds me of dead bugs. But in this case, the petals actually look like rose petals, so it doesn’t bother me. My skin is SO smooth and soft after soaking in the bath.
What is your fave bath product? Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

With the start of colder weather, I decided to get myself a travel sized hand cream to keep in my bag because my hands get very dry. I wanted a hand cream that was super moisturizing but not greasy, and either unscented or lightly scented.
I was taking a shortcut through one of the malls to get to the metro and spotted a Body Shop and decided to pop in to see if they had any travel sized hand creams.
The Body Shop that I went to had four different travel sized hand creams – absinthe, hemp, almond and wild rose. I smelled them all in the store and decided to buy the Wild Rose scented hand cream because it has a true rose scent (it smells exactly like a freshly picked rose from the garden *swoon*).
The Wild Rose Hand Cream really is super moisturizing, and not at all greasy.
I only have two small complaints – the first is that you have to be careful not to squeeze the metal tube too hard, else the hand cream will continue to ooze out of the tube while you are trying to get the cap back on the tube. My second complaint is that, although I do love the wild rose scent, it was VERY STRONGLY scented when I first opened the tube. So much so, that it was be smelled from across the room. But after using it daily, for nearly two weeks, the scent has started to lessen (thankfully).
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
