The Shimmer Oil that’s Permanently Extending my Summer Glow

Luxcey Zoé Or - Huile Sublime

(Luxcey Zoé Or – Huile Sublime, $90)

You already moisturize when you get out of the shower, why not try a shimmer body oil? My vampire-esq pale skin needed a little help recently so I tried something new and I’m currently obsessed over Luxcey’s all natural Zoé Or – Huile Sublime. It’s a hydrating body oil that gives the illusion of glowing skin with a finely-milled mica shimmer that slightly illuminates all while nourishing deeply with repairing Macadamia Nut Oil and firming Rosehip oil. It’s pretty amazing, a multitasker for covering superficial imperfections and creating a lustrous glow, which can be used in hair or on cheekbones for added highlight.

The scent is something special, it’s enticing and very unique. It’s a blend of fruits, flowers and spice extracts plus essential oils and flower infused. And I love the fact that Zoé Or – Huile Sublime is free of parabens, phtalates, sulfates, fillers, gluten, animal testing, mineral oils, and petroleum. This is my new summer skin care ritual.

2 Different Approaches To Body Care with Yuni | Mindful Beauty


(Yuni Rise & Chill, $35 | Yuni Wind-Down Wonder, $35)

YUNI is the first natural high performing beauty brand that is sustainable, convenient, and most importantly, a Yoga-inspired beauty brand. The products create a distinct and memorable experience – the “anchoring” moment with the product – including tactile and olfactory sensations, through the use of high-performance botanicals, unique aroma blends, cooling or warming effects and nature-powered ingredients. Formulated exclusively with natural aromas, YUNI is a fantastic brand to explore if you’re looking for non-toxic, plant-based, mindful body care options that are free of parabens, formaldehyde, petrolatum, SLS or anything questionable.

With the array of aromatic body oils we feature on Le Petit Mondea I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to feature Yuni for you guys. Even though they are labeled gels they are actually oils and are complete game changers. They are light-weight, and by light-weight I’m talking spray on and you’ll be downstairs out the door in morning rush-hour 10 minutes early, maybe 15. My favorite is the Wind-Down Wonder Warming Body Oil for its soothing and and warming treat to my muscles, thanks to the Copaiba, Inca, and Paracress Plant and the sensorial experience from aromatic blend of Bergamot, Cardamom, and Palmarosa to dissolve the stresses of the day.

The Rise & Chill is the opposite sister it can cool, hydrate, and energize and is ideal for morning or as a pre or post-workout refresh. I think this is perfect and just in time for summer, when it’s hot outside-you’re laying by the pool and you need a quick refresh or you have a sunburn and the Aloe Vera, Peppermint, and Green Tea Extracts would instantly revive skin and active cooling from menthol in Peppermint would calm and reduce discomfort. Aloe Vera base acts as an inflammatory and soothing agent.

Is Going Au Naturel, in Terms of Deodorant the Way To Go?

Natural Deodorant Round Up

au na•tu•rel adj. 1. in the natural state.* 2. naked; nude. 3. cooked plainly. 4. uncooked. [< French]

The organic beauty movement has become hella-popular over the past couple of seasons, with major brands and celebs offering all-natural or vegan product lines. And while it’s not necessarily my jam, I get the appeal. The products are better for sensitive skin, they’re animal cruelty-free, and the packaging is usually super cute. But all-natural deodorant??? A gal’s underarm maintenance is not something to be messed with. But here’s the thing, regular deodorants depend on an aluminum-based compounds that temporarily plugs the sweat ducts and prevents you from perspiring. And the side effects associated with the said compound may do you more harm than the sweat does.
Alzheimer’s and breast cancer have been linked to the aluminum found in anti-antiperspirants. And if that doesn’t scare you maybe yellow pit-stains will. It’s the acidity of the aluminum that causes the dreaded reaction against your favorite white tee. Aluminum-free deodorants work, you just have to find the best option for your body. They come in oils, creams, sticks or roll-on’s, with scents ranging from eucalyptus to rose, citrus and sage, to name a few. But be forewarned ladies, there’s a detox period when you first make the switch and you just may stink for a couple of days.
