Le Couvent Des Minimes Beauty Products

Hey everyone!

You all know how much I love beauty products from France! Recently, I was sent a few goodies to try out from Le Couvent Des Minimes, a brand that will be carried at Ulta starting this August! These three products are so amazing, I cannot wait to see what Ulta will carry! 

The Beneficial Rose Skincare Complete Moisturizing Cream is thick and luxurious, but it still absorbs into skin quickly. I currently use this both day and night, and I have noticed a difference in my skin already. My face looks healthier and my skin feels soft and smooth.

The Hiker's Foot Healer Lotion works wonders on my dry and tired feet! In the summer, I tend to go around the house barefoot, so my feet aren't always their prettiest all the time. However, thanks to this foot cream, my dry heels are moisturized and are looking better the more I use this on them! Plus, this foot cream feels like a treat whenever I use it, so what's not to love?

You all know by now about my constant fight with my dry, rough hands. Well, the Gardener's Hand Healer has totally proven itself to me! I put a pea size amount of this cream on my hands, and I could instantly feel the difference in my skin. This hand cream doesn't leave a greasy residue behind, so I can put it on in the middle of the day and not worry. 

Beneficial Rose Skincare Complete Moisturizing Cream (1.7oz, $33):

This rich moisturizer replenishes skin with active extracts of four beneficial roses and hydrating Grapeseed Oil, for soft, supple, smooth, and radiant skin.

Hiker’s Foot Healer (2.6oz, $19):

Recover from a long trek - or just a long day - with this original recipe of nine beneficial plants, selected to nourish, soften and soothe hot, tired, dry feet. The all-in-one foot healer features Borage Oil, Shea Butter and Grapeseed Oil to nourish and repair, as Wintergreen softens and Ivy improves microcirculation. Tapioca Powder prevents rubbing and chafing while Alpine Mint, Lemon and Listea Cubeba essences refresh and purify.

Gardener’s Hand Healer (2.6oz., $19; 0.8oz., $8):
This best selling cream features an original recipe combining 20% Shea Butter and seven beneficial plants in a rich and emollient cream to nourish and repair dry, damaged hands. The formula protects against cracks and chapped skin like an invisible glove. As Shea Butter nourishes and regenerates, Rosemary protects and Marshmallow prevents irritation. Calendula and Lemon Balm provide antibacterial benefits, while Chamomile soothes, Mimosa repairs and Verbena revitalizes.
Here is a bit of information about the brand:  
400 years ago, a convent was built in the village of Mane in the South of France to shelter the botanist monks of the Minims, who used their considerable knowledge of plants to tend a garden of curative herbs and flowers.  Centuries later, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary continued the original convention of cultivating beneficial ingredients to help strengthen and restore those in need through food recipes. The sisters used the power of plants to nourish and heal their community, restoring well-being in a spirit of generosity. This emphasis on nourishing care through nature inspired Le Couvent des Minimes’ own simple yet powerful natural fragrance and skincare recipes, the basis of a collection of efficacious formulas that draw on the heritage and traditions of the convent of Mane.
Every recipe combines proven natural ingredients and is inspired by ancestral traditions to deliver modern benefits. From skincare to bath and body to fragrance, each formula is crafted using age-old phytotherapy and aromatherapy practices honed over centuries, blending effective and pleasurable ingredients to nourish and replenish. Le Couvent des Minimes recipes combine ingredients like floral waters and nutrient-rich plant extracts that have an inherent affinity with the skin for naturally efficacious products.
The full collection is available at and select items will be available at ULTA Beauty in August 2013.
