                 HADALI ORGANIC CARIBBEAN SKINCARE
                                    Oil for Body & Hair- The French Style



    Well, although summer is here but it is coming to a rapid closure. I couldn't think of a better way to express my thanks to a rather mild summer-not too hot and not too cold (at least in the midwest).

   I needed to mention some luxury finds that puts the crest of summer at its best.

   One of these finds is by Hadali Organics Caribbean Skincare. It is a hair, facial and body collection of highly organic ingredients that are manufactured in France.

  So, what is so Caribbean about it? Well the answer to that is the native coconut oil and cashew nut essence in this collection that smells and provides an island-like substance of tranquility and abundance of earthly goods by land and by sea.

 My ultimate favorite is the Hadali-Beauty Fine Oil for Body and Hair. It is a 100ml/3.3 fluid ounce at $60.00 USD.

 It is truly a silky liquid that glides on the body with an absolutely lush scent of the tropics and the sillage is long lasting and quite vibrate at times, especially when the sun is at its brightest.

I love how it moisturizes the skin without leaving a greasy feel.

The bottle is beautifully decorated with a crescent of leaves and three black silhouette birds on the edges to give it that extra special glamour. Also, it is a lovely yellow-honey color oil that glistens inside the rectangular bottle. This is a treasure in itself.

Hadali means "sun". This really gives meaning to this product because it especially works wonders after the shower and as a makeup remover.

The essence of Hadali Organic Caribbean Skincare is made of 100% of the total ingredients are of natural origin and 99.5% of the total ingredients proceed from certified organic farming.

So, not only does it look and smell good with luxe packaging it is also excellent for your skin and good for the earth.

This collection is offered with products such as a body scrub, body moisturizer, anti-aging facial cream and facial moisturizer.

Don't let summer breeze by with trying. It will cast your cares away "Caribbeanly".

                               Moroccan Mud
                       It only comes from Africa

 There are many products that treat the face and body but you only want the best. My next discovery comes all the way from Africa, north Africa to be exact.

 It comes from the mountains of Morocco and it is simply called Moroccan Mud. This is not your typical mud from a spa. It comes from Morocco with minerals and proteins that coat the skin giving it a clearer and bright appearance.

I do not use this everyday but at least twice a week I use it on my face and next. This reddish-brown mud is comes in a powder form but it can be mixed with water, milk and honey and then the consistency becomes a paste.

I use it with water with a two-three drops of organic orange blossom honey. I smooth it over my face and under the eye area. Make sure not to get it in your eyes. Cover your entire face with it and your neck too.

Moroccan Mud can be used entirely on the body. I normally wait at least 4 minutes to dry on the face and about 10 minutes to dry on the entire body. So you may want to read a magazine while you wait for it to do so.  

Afterwards go in the shower and let the water wash of the mud. It will take a few minutes and a little help on your part by washing it off with your hands if you are less than a patient person.

Once the mud is completely washed off. You may use your choice of soap or body washes.

Your skin will feel tingly but smooth, clearer and extremely clean!

Ladies, your moisturizer will glide on and your cosmetics will appear brighter because your skin is extremely smooth which will produce a better appearance.

I absolutely love this product!

                                     ANU ESSENTIALS
The Perfume Collection: Created with the essence of Earth
               

 It gives me great pleasure to introduce Anu Essentials Natural Perfumery. Anu is an emerging perfumer who has created her first collection of three natural perfumes that uses the very essences that is all and good.

I remember seeing a photo posted by Anu Prestonia, owner and perfumer of Anu Essentials with her in a natural perfumery class taught by the master perfumer, Mandy Aftel of Aftelier Perfumes.

Soon after seeing that photo, Anu Prestonia featured her natural perfumery.  

I knew that something special and wonderful would be revealed and when I got my sample of the collection, I was right!

I was first introduced to Anu Essentials by getting samples of her hair oils. I was extremely impressed and was compelled to write a review about them. So, I knew for a fact that Anu's passion for natural products would be as wonderful as her collection of hair, skin and body products.

This is a true story, after receiving the sample collection of the perfumes, I misplaced them. I looked everywhere for them. I felt bad and I did not want to tell Anu I lost them.

After several months I recently found them. I was so happy because now I could write the review. To my surprise, the perfumes smelled even better. The sillage lasted longer and the aromas were heightened. I keep my samples of perfumes in a air tight container in the basement where it is cool. So, this should tell you that keeping your fragrances in a cool place will prolong your scents.

I wore each one of these scents for several days and read the description of each to keep in mind what I need to seek from each one.

The first scent I wore is SITA. I loved the idea of the Venusian Goddess is to be released upon usage. Awesome! I differently smelled the clove ooze in a deep spicy and majestic fashion that intertwined nicely with the rose otto. This is a smoldering and earthly created scent that speaks universally. This scent is captivating because it surrounds expensive organic spices and it seem with little effort, Anu arranged them so implicitly but I know this is hard work.

 MEADOW LARK perfume graces the image of the healing heart. It brings closure and stability in the most compassionate form.

 Meadow Lark gives another version of the rose with Bulgarian rose alba and a sweeping scent of sandalwood. My experience with the clary sage is deepened momentarily until after awhile the clementine lifts the spirit.

I truly enjoyed this lighter version because it was during the day-partically a raining day and Meadow Lark waft with the ability to out shine the rainstorm.

SEA SCAPE, this fragrance is bringing the ocean to you. One of my most favorite heady scents is jasmine and Sea Scape gives two different kinds!

The fragrance of water with rushing waves best describes Sea Scape. It is refreshing and once again this third scent comes with its own Bulgarian rose scent.

Seaweed and violet leaf are perfect depiction of the sea with corals roving in the water.

This is a summer scent that will keep you daydreaming at the beach.

Each fragrances is priced at $85.00 USD.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
