Product Review: Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Body Lotion

Have you ever used a product for an extended period of time, and then every time you use it in the future it takes you back to a time in your life? I’m pretty sure that is what is going to happen to me with the Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Body Lotion. I’ve been using it non-stop as my body moisturiser since first buying it last year. I think it’s safe to say I love it. The smell is perfect for summer; it’s light, sweet and absolutely delicious. The smell lingers for quite a long time, which I love because the scent is so amazing. People have actually commented on my “perfume” on days where I was wearing no fragrance other than this lotion. It does a pretty decent job at moisturising, but please keep in mind that I don’t have very dry skin so I’m not sure how it would work for those who need a deeper moisturising lotion than I. The Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Lotion retails for $9.50 US and is only available from Bath + Body Works Online. (Note: I purchased mine using parcel forwarding service, Hop Shop Go)

Echolife Giveaway & Reader Review [CLOSED]

I’ve been talking more and more lately about how I want to embrace a natural way of living, and one way I am planning to do that is by incorporating more natural products into my beauty routine, and also doing whatever I can to support local business and Australian made products. A company that embraces both of those things is Echolife, and they have offered to sponser a giveaway for one of The Belle Lumiere’s Australian readers. The prize will be a product of your choice from the Echolife $0-$34 Natural Beauty Spread. Echolife will send you the product you choose, and then once you’ve tried it out for a while you get to write up a review and have it posted on The Belle Lumiere. (And of course, you get to keep the product) Fun! To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and be sure to leave your email in the details section so that I have a way to get in contact with you if you’re the lucky winner. I will draw the winner next Saturday, the 12th of February 2011. Please note that all entrants must reside in Australia. (Sorry, international readers!) Good luck!
