I love the nostalgia of classic New York institutions, and C.O. Bigelow Apothecary is one of the quintessential neighborhood mainstays which remains trendy and relevant today. Whenever I’m in the Village and have some time to kill, I always stop by and leave with some goodies, my all-time favorites being their eponymous collection of soaps and lotions. I appreciate that the formulas are time-tested and high quality, so I can count on them to cleanse without drying, moisturize without being greasy, and basically do their job while lifting my mood with delicious scents. One of my favorite lines this summer is the collection of Mentha Lip Shine glosses. These natural mint-filled glosses nourish like crazy while cooling the lips. It feels glorious as soon as I have a layer on, and the shine stays even overnight (tried and true!).
The Ginger Mentha Lotion is what I call a necessary luxury which I partake of every day post-shower! The lotion efficiently moisturizes and infuses real mint and ginger into the skin, producing a delicious cooling sensation that tingles! The light and quickly absorbing lotion is a perfect contrast to warm weather and invigorates my skin. Not only does it feel happy and wonderful going on, the lotion deeply nourishes with Vitamin A, C, and E. Your skin will thank you as it is left soft, supple, and refreshed.
