Le Couvent des Minimes uses softening Orange Blossom water along with nutrient-rich botanical oils (Sweet Almond, Borage, Sesame, Camelina, and Safflower Oil) for a multipurpose Beneficial Care Oil. When applied to the skin or used in a bath, the lushly scented oil absorbs into and hydrates the skin, while smoothing even the smallest amount on the ends of your hair will leave it silky with a high shine. The scent evokes the rebirth of spring, even during the cold of January with the sweet Orange Blossom providing a fresh, mouth-watering fragrance. (3.4 fl. oz, $32)
I had the opportunity to try out Le Couvent des Minimes Eau Aimable Beneficial Care Oil. It’s a great multipurpose product that has a fresh and delicate scent.
I used the oil daily on my skin, hair, and in the bath, as instructed on the packaging. I like that it left my skin and hair feeling soft. I found that using more than a dime size made my hair greasy. So I used the recommended amount, mostly on the ends, to keep it silky but not weighed down.
The biggest benefit for me was using the oil to combat dry, winter skin. It has a great, hydrating formula that felt gentle and nourishing.
