How does this sound for heavenly? Created in Saint-Barth with rose hip oil from Chile and Vitamins A, E, and F...no alcohol, no coloring, no artificial preservatives - just voluptuously natural and organic fragranced oils for the body and hair. Belou's P makes all-natural and organic fragrant oils, a mosquito repellent oil, and 100% vegetable soap.
Although it had been written up in Town & Country, W, and Bazaar, I stumbled upon the Colombier Fragrant Body Oil ($38) at Beautyhabit. Each fragrant oil is named for a different island beach. Colombier, enriched by lily, jasmine, and frangipani, sounded right up my alley. Used to moisturize, the body oil leaves a scent that is rich, floral, and tropical. I find it intoxicating. Not only that, the bottle is beautiful and recyclable.
Beautyhabit sells the body oil in two other scents. Chauvette radiates warm spices, santal wood, and lime. Lorient is a sensuous blend of tuberose, gardenia, narcissus, and iris. Pick your type and try one! Given the season, I'm thinking about trying the Mosquito Repellent Oil ($35). Advertised to keep mosquitoes away (they are everywhere and biting this year - I can't go to the mailbox without being attacked), the oil is also supposed to help with the itchy, unsightly red welts from bites.
